Here are a few figures that tell a story about the much touted charity “One Laptop Per Child” (OLPC), which your tax dollars subsidize:
Your Tax Dollars Usher in HAMAS’ Online Future
Number of free laptops OLPC delivered to Palestinian Muslim kids in HAMAS Gaza, Fatah West Bank, and Lebanon:
At least 7,450
Number of free OLPC laptops paid for to be delivered in the future to Palestinian Muslim kids in HAMAS Gaza, Fatah West Bank, Lebanon, Syria, and Jordan:
Number of free laptops OLPC delivered to poor Israeli Jewish kids in Sderot, Jerusalem, the Negev and other locations in Israel:
Number of free laptops OLPC delivered to poor kids in Detroit, Michigan:
Number of free laptops OLPC delivered to poor kids throughout the U.S.: 16,400
Not only are your tax dollars subsidizing and financing this, they’re doing it twice. First, there’s the tax deductible status of OLPC. Then, there’s the fact that the Palestinian terrorist kids’ computers are paid for by UNRWA, the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugee in the Near East, the Palestinian-specific UN agency paid for mostly by your tax dollars (the U.S. is the largest donor to this agency).
More on how your taxes subsidizee HAMAS curriculum, enabled by computers:
Today in the city of Rafah (19 miles south of Gaza City), officials from OLPC, UNRWA and other NGOs and donors, local dignitaries, parents, teachers and children are celebrating the deployment of the first 2,100 XO laptops at the Rafah Co-Education Elementary School D. Along with OLPC and UNRWA, the deployment is also supported by the Jordanian Hashemite Charitable Organization (JHCO) and the Office of the President (Mahmoud Abbas) of the Palestinian National Authority.
OLPC has worked closely with UNRWA on teacher training and the development of localised software and content for the XOs. 200 teachers have already been trained and more than 150 electronic learning modules are being adapted for use on the XO. OLPC and UNRWA are also collaborating on the formatting of electronic textbooks and workbooks for an entire primary school curriculum.
Rafah is also the city of HAMAS weapons and IED-smuggling tunnels. And keep in mind that it’s well documented that most of these schools are operated by HAMAS, with many of the teachers moonlighting as HAMAS terrorists. And they teach the kids the philosophy of HAMAS (or in the “West Bank,” Fatah/PLO) to the kids. These computers are now another tool in their terrorist plots.
And you have to wonder why OLPC has chosen Palestinian kids, most of whom support Islamic terrorism, as the largest ever recipient group of its laptops.
So, whether or not you can afford a laptop for each of your kids, America is paying for 500,000 laptops to be delivered to Palestinian kids, many of whom are in refugee camps in Syria, Lebanon, and Jordan, where they will–cradle-to-grave–be trained to become Islamic terrorists (not to mention the same in Gazastan and the so-called “West Bank”).
Think these computers won’t be used for terrorist networking?
Think again. Your tax dollars at work, enabling the online communications of future and present Islamic terrorists. Congrats.
