Summer camp?

Whatever happened to learning how to tie knots? I don't think that is something these children were learning! (the photos is titled Hizballah kids)

More Children Recruited For Arab Terrorism
17:33 Aug 09, '04 / 22 Av 5764

Security sources revealed today that in In months, at least three attempts by Arab terrorists in Israel to use minors in attacks against Jews were foiled. In one case, a group of 11-14-year-olds were caught smuggling weapons between Egypt and Israel. In another case, a 17-year-old Arab youth blew himself up in an attempted attack near the Arab village of Jinsafut, 11 miles east of Kfar Saba. And in yet another incident, three Arab youths aged 13-15 were stopped at an IDF checkpoint in Jenin on their way to carry out a shooting attack in the town of Afula.

I have an 11 year old. I can't imagine teaching her terrorism. Where is the outcry among Peace Now groups? These are children! They aren't things, they shouldn't be made into weapons. They are human beings. They deserve lives; they have a right to ogle girls and make stupid jokes and see who can throw the ball the farthest, and to get into trouble because they stayed out late. Where are the protests against teaching these children MURDER? Training them to kill themselves?

The security sources say that the latest incidents are only a sample of the widespread use of children and minors in the terrorist war against Israel. Among the actions carried out by minors since the start of the Oslo War in September 2000, are: suicide bombings, riots, clashes with IDF soldiers, smuggling, reconnaissance, serving as spotters, digging tunnels, and more. IsraelNN's Haggai Huberman noted that the defense establishment views the phenomenon of children terrorists as a direct result of the ongoing incitement to violence in the Arafat-controlled and schools.

Which is why the checkpoints, and why children aren't always let through. These children are abused. Where are the human shields to protect these children from their parents and from Arafat and his gang? He is a murderer of children, a killer of innocents. How can anyone see him as a partner for peace?

I always feel ill when I see Kfar Saba in the news. That is where I shopped,ate falafel and had fun for 2 years. My kibbutz was 5 minutes from there.
Kids need to be kids. I don't know what else to say!

Little children shouldn't be soldiers. Where is their innocence?
