    Background: THE AL FATAH ORGANISATION HAS OPENED A GIRLS' SCHOOL FOR THE DAUGHTERS OF COMMANDOS KILLED IN ACTION.

    MANY OF THE AL FATAH COMMANDOS KILLED IN ACTION HAVE LEFT BEHIND LARGE FAMILIES. NOW THE ORPHAN DAUGHTERS OF SUCH FAMILIES ARE BEING OFFERED EDUCATION IN A SPECIAL SCHOOL ESTABLISHED FOR THEM BY THE AL FATAH ORGANISATION. THE SCHOOL IS KNOWN AS THE "HOME OF JERUSALEM" AND ACCOMMODATES SEVENTY CHILDREN BETWEEN THE AGES OF SIX AND FOURTEEN. ALL ARE BOARDERS IN THE ESTABLISHMENT AND WILL BE TAUGHT BOTH ENGLISH AND HEBREW. THESE LANGUAGES ARE INCLUDED ON THE CURRICULUM AS THE TEACHERS BELIEVE THAT IF PALESTINE BECOMES A FREE STATE, JEWS, CHRISTIANS, AND ARABS WILL LIVE SIDE BY SIDE.

    CHILDREN AT THE SCHOOL FREQUENTLY ASK THEIR TEACHERS WHEN THEY WILL BE TAKEN TO HELP IN THE FIGHTING. THEY OFTEN SING AL FATAH SONGS IN CLASS AND WHILE MARCHING, AND HAVE NATIONALISTIC RECORDS PLAYED TO THEM DURING MEALS.
