    Agence France Press: Norman Solomon is a 65-year-old real estate agent from Los Angeles, a world away from the West Bank settlement firing range where he is spending the day learning to shoot a gun.

    “We came to show the kids how the Israelis protect themselves and to have a good time,” he tells AFP in between shots at white target paper and photos of men sporting the chequered keffiyeh scarf worn by many Palestinians.

    Solomon, a Jewish American, is spending a couple of hours of his holiday at the Caliber 3 shooting school in the West Bank settlement bloc of Gush Etzion, south of Jerusalem.

    ….
    The company says it offers “the values of Zionism with the excitement and enjoyment of shooting which makes the activity more meaningful.”

    Its website touts the course as a “special encounter that can not be experienced anywhere else except on the battlefield.”

    It’s a major draw for American tourists, with hundreds flocking to the site near the settlement of Efrat for a swift theoretical introduction to handling firearms followed by a hands-on shooting session supervised by instructors.

    “It’s a fun experience for the whole family,” said Rachel Frogel, a young mother holding a baby in her arms.”

    Nobody knows how to have family fun as they do!

      that it does. just like the hitler youth instilled the “values of nazism”.
