Palestinian Minors – “Terrorists or Children”

by Laura Stuart

On the 22nd of January the Guardian newspaper published an article about the mistreatment of Palestinian children who are arrested and detained in Israel, entitled “The Palestinian children – alone and bewildered – in Israel’s Al Jalame jail”. The “Hasbara” reply was published today where the writer Amir Ofek leaves the reader in no doubt that Palestinian children are terrorists, murderers and virtually spring from their mother’s wombs wearing suicide belts.

No mention of the night raids by I.O.F. soldiers who enter family homes at 2 a.m. using the maximum aggression to arrest young children as their parents can only look helplesly on. Those young children were probably named by other children who whilst under arrest were coerced and psychologically pressured into giving some names of other children involved in stone throwing resistance.

Here is an excellent website which publishes the daily statistics of all acts of aggression in Occupied Palestine called the “New Zealand Palestinian Human Rights Campaign”, they publish statistics of incidents by both sides including the number of night raids and arrests of children.

So I thought for the sake of balance that I should post videos in reply to the Guardian piece showing how Jewish Israeli children manage the business of occupation and that anything that Palestinian children (the occupied) can do is done so much better by Jewish Israeli children who have an army to make sure that they can operate with impunity. The first video shows Israeli children throwing stones at International activists who are committted to non violence, volunteers with I.S.M. and the second shows how Israeli children are prepared from a young age to be part of a military occupation.

It’s good to share…
