We can forgive the Arabs for killing our children.
We cannot forgive them for forcing us to kill their children.
We will only have peace with the Arabs when they love their children more than they hate us.”
Golda Meir, former Israeli Prime Minister, 1972.
Convention on the Rights of the Child:
UN General Assembly resolution 44/25 of 20 November 1989 entry into force 2 September 1990, in accordance with article 49
Article 35 – Parties (PA included) shall take all appropriate national, bilateral and multilateral measures to prevent the abduction of, the sale of, or traffic in children for any purpose or in any form.
Article 37 – No child shall be subjected to torture or other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment …
Articles 32–39 – The Convention names and recognizes the child’s right to be free from various forms of exploitation and abuse, including physical and sexual abuse, economic and sexual exploitation, exposure to addictive drugs, and warfare.
Two optional protocols were adopted on 25 May 2000. The First Optional Protocol restricts the involvement of children in military conflicts[/highlight
It’s interesting to note that the only two countries to have signed this and not ratified it, are the United States of America and Djibouti.
Who and what are these people who use children for their own political gain ?
The majority of Palestinian Arabs have such a blind hatred of Israel, for whatever reason, that they teach their children to hate, kill and be killed as shahids/suicide bombers at an early age.
We send our children to parties as clowns, fairies, Batman, ballerinas etc., whilst theirs are dressed either as suicide bombers or soldiers.
We send our children to camps during school holidays to have fun and to play, to swim, participate in sport and have fun.
In Gaza parents send their children to holiday camps to learn to fight and kill not only others, but themselves too.
Why isn’t this reported? Why doesn’t the media report these things?
A recent example of indoctrination was tiny children giving the three fingers sign glorifying the fact the three young men, who were doing nothing but trying to go home after school, were abducted and killed by Hamas thugs.
The Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America (CAMERA) is trying to build upon past social media movements with the hashtag #ChildrenAreNOTWeapons, which attempts to spark a wave of protest, urging Palestinian leaders to stop using their children as tools of war.
Support from world leaders for the three Israeli boys kidnapped by Palestinian terrorists in Israel was tepid at best, but recognizing interest in the kidnapped Nigerian girls was in large part generated on social media with the hashtag #BringBackOurGirls. The success of that hashtag spurred the launch of one supporting the three kidnapped Israeli youths #BringBackOurBoys. CAMERA states:
Hamas Used Child Labor to Build Terror Tunnels; Hundreds Killed
Hamas killed hundreds of children in the construction of its extensive tunnel network, built partly to carry out attacks on children across the Gaza border in Israel. That report–confirmed by Hamas itself–emerged in 2012, not from the Israeli government, but the sympathetic Journal of Palestine Studies, in an article that otherwise celebrated the secret tunnel system as a symbol of Palestinian resistance to the Israeli “siege” of the Gaza Strip.
The article, “Gaza’s Tunnel Phenomenon: The Unintended Dynamics of Israel’s Siege,” was published in the Summer 2012 edition of the Journal by Nicholas Pelham, who writes for the Economist and the New York Review of Books, according to his bio. It is receiving new attention thanks to Myer Freimann of Tablet, an online journal of Jewish affairs, whose post about Hamas’s use of child labor has gone viral in social media.
Pelham wrote that despite the economic success of the tunnels underneath the Egyptian border, which enriched Hamas through a thriving black market as well as arming it with new weapons, there were a few drawbacks. One of these was a “cavalier approach to child labor and tunnel fatalities,” he noted.
“During a police patrol that the author was permitted to accompany in December 2011, nothing was done to impede the use of children in the tunnels, where, much as in Victorian coal mines, they are prized for their nimble bodies. At least 160 children have been killed in the tunnels, according to Hamas officials“
The Jerusalem Post reports for The Guardian that schools in Gaza are providing military training to teenage boys, teaching them how to fire rocket launchers, Kalashnikov assault rifles and other weapons.
Members of Hamas’s Izzadin Kassam brigades assist in the training, according to the Gaza Ministry of Education website. They also teach schoolboys first aid, firefighting and “the values of discipline and responsibility.”
The school curriculum is supplemented with voluntary camps during school breaks where the boys get further training in handling guns and explosives.
About 5,000 boys have been trained in this programme since it started in September 2012. The curriculum is taught to 37,000 students aged 15-17 and parents are entitled to withdraw their sons from the course, but the newspaper reports that such a move is rare.
The Hamas education ministry website denies real weapons are being used in training, however, a video posted on YouTube shows a teenager at the Gamal Abdel Nasser school near Gaza City fire a rocket launcher at a target that includes a makeshift Israeli flag.
The Hamas general director of educational activities, Mohammed Syam, denied that there was any military training in the programme and said only one percent of it was devoted to learning about weapons. However, a press release in his name said the program focuses on “military exercises, particularly on weapons training and skills training in the field of military confrontation.”
The Hamas government is considering adapting the program for girls next year as well.
Guns and camouflage: Welcome to Hamas’ summer-camp
‘Israeli incursions into Gaza force Palestinian to learn basics of firearms for self-defense,’ says Hamas official regarding terror summer-camp set to host some 100,000 kids this summer.
Instead of classrooms and swimming lessons, the camp boasts military training facilities and uniform-clad children and teens.
The terror camp will host roughly 100,000 children aged 12-16 for seven days a week, three hours a day, Al-Monitor reported. The kids don camouflage fatigues and green berets, and are instructed by some forty members of Hamas’ military wing, the Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades.
