PA Times Charges of Israeli ‘Torture’ of Children with Kerry’s Visit

The Palestinian Authority opened up the propaganda taps Wednesday with charges that Israel and the “occupation forces” are “torturing” Arab children.

The allegations were reported several hours before U.S. Secretary of State John Kelley landed in Israel. He previously has incited Arab violence by warning Israel that if it does not do as he says, it might face a new intifada.

“The international community is urgently required to act against Israel and punish the occupation state for violating international laws in the first instance, and in the second to save arrested Palestinian children who are under Israeli torture,” PA Minister of Detainees’ Affairs Zeyad Abu Ain told GulfNews.com.

“Meetings have been organized between European Union ambassadors and Palestinian children released from Israeli prisons and detention centers where the children told the ambassadors their torture stories,” he added. “We have solid and undisputed proof of violations by the Israeli occupation against Palestinian children and the Israelis cannot deny this occurs,” he stressed.

It is true that Israel arrests minors, Jews and Arabs alike. That is because the minors commit acts of violence, like Arabs throwing rocks at Jews and Jews throwing rocks at police.

The Palestinian Authority apparently considers that it is “torture” for a child to be in jail. It certainly is not pleasant, nor is it pleasant to be on the receiving end of a rock.

But Israeli jails really are not jails. The Gulf News report called them “iron cages.”

And the children really are patriots, the Palestinian Authority minister said. “Those patriotic children are usually sent to unauthorized detention centers in the spreading colonies in the West Bank,” the official told Gulf News. “The children are not kept in official detention centers or prisons so the occupation forces can treat them in their own way.”

    JIHAD FOR KIDS
    wtvt ^ | 2-4-02 | Glen Selig

    (The following is transcribed from a TV show)

    LINK TO REPORT WITH PICTURES

    It’s a show that won't make the Saturday morning lineup on any American network. But it has had a prominent slot on Palestinian TV. The program lacks the same slick production value of an American children's show, but it's just as influential. It's called The Children's Club.

    It comes complete with puppet shows, games, songs and a very chilling message about becoming a suicide bomber. A little girl sings in Arabic about her ultimate ambition in life.

    (Song Translation) “Oh sing my sister constantly about my life as a suicide warrior.”

    Another girl screams about preparing to die.

    Teaching to hate

    (Song Translation) “I foresee my death, but I march quickly. Am I afraid? Life has little value because I'm returning to my lord and my people will know I am a hero.”

    That message is repeated again and again in song and verse.

    (Song Translation) “I will come at the time of drought with my best efforts bring a machine gun, violence anger, anger, anger…”

    The children, most of them elementary school age, shout a message of violence.

    “I will return with the dawn of tomorrow. It is my conviction of launch a jihad.”

    Girl shouting a message of violence

    (Song Translation) “When I wander into Jerusalem, I'll turn into a suicide warrior in battle dress, in battle dress, in battle dress.”

    A teacher cheers them on, “Bravo, bravo, bravo.”

    If you're like most Americans, you had no idea that the show existed, but the Children's Club is no secret to Israelis.

    “I am still shocked every time I see it,” says Hela Crown-Tamir who lived in Israel for 19 years.

    “Imagine a teacher telling them bravo, "Crown-Tamir says, "because they're going to grow up to be a militant Islamic suicide bomber.”

    Hela Crown-Tamir

    Crown-Tamir moved back to The Tampa Bay area to escape the violence that ruined her travel business. She says Americans are just now waking up to the realities Israelis have been facing for years, that children are trained as suicide bombers. Because it's so dramatic, some Israeli groups have used excerpts from The Children's Club to produce a campaign against Palestinian leader Yassir Arafat.

    But are Palestinian children really educated this way? Or is this just an Israeli propaganda tool? We contacted several Islamic groups in the Tampa Bay area, but no one from any of those organizations would even agree to watch the tape.

    Professor Abdelwahab Hachiche

    But University of South Florida professor Abdelwahab Hachiche did agree to watch it.

    “I always keep a reasonable degree of skepticism about anything I see or anything I read.”

    Hachiche is an internationally recognized expert on Mideast terrorism. He's also an Arab and a Moslem. Until we gave him the tape, he'd never heard of the show. And while he says he has no idea who produced it, he says the translations are accurate and the problem is real.

    “And the indoctrination and the danger of indoctrination is very, very serious.”

    Dr. Hachiche calls this kind of teaching nothing short of infanticide. But he hopes children growing up in today's Islamic world will ultimately reject these messages of hatred.

    “On both sides the younger generation are looking for true leaders who will have the courage to overcome this passion that is leading to mutual destruction.”

    Still, in the mid-east the violence continues. And now even in America we're looking terrorism right in the face– listening and wondering if this is the voice of the future.

    Look at the sadistic child abusers the PA are.

    THEY PROMISED THE BOY $22 AND 72 VIRGINS, THEN …SENT HIM TO DIE
    BY DEBORAH BLACHOR ,CORKY SIEMASZKO
    NEW YORK DAILY NEWS
    MARCH 25, 2004

    A Palestinian boy bomber who was given $22 and promised 72 virgins in paradise was forced at gunpoint by Israeli soldiers to strip and remove the explosives strapped to his body. "Do I have to take my clothes off here?

    " Hussam Abdu, 14, asked as soldiers yelled orders from behind barricades at a West Bank checkpoint. The soldiers insisted. "He panicked, lifted his hands and a tragedy was prevented because he did not manage to detonate the explosive," said Lt. Col. Guy, commander of the paratrooper unit. It was around 3 p.m.

    when Abdu walked up, wearing an oversized red jacket. The soldiers were suspicious and ordered him to raise the jacket, revealing a gray vest packed with explosives. "We could see that there was something on under his jacket," said one of the paratroopers. They ordered Abdu to take off his clothes, one item at a time – a suspenseful striptease caught on camera. When Abdu had stripped down to his underpants, the soldiers used a yellow, remote-controlled robot to deliver a pair of scissors to cut off the vest. "Lift your right hand and reach out to grab the scissors with the left," one yelled. The frightened boy did as he was told, and after struggling with the scissors he was free of his deadly payload. "He said he didn't want to die," said another soldier who was at the checkpoint. "He didn't want to blow up.

    " Abdu was bundled in a green hooded parka and rushed off to safety while the vest was taken away and safely detonated. The boy later told investigators that Tanzim – a militant group affiliated with Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat's Fatah movement – told him that the only way he would ever have sex was to blow himself up. They also promised to give 100 shekels to his mother, who is ill. The boy said he wanted to be "a hero.

    " "This is another example of the atrocious tendency of the Palestinians to sacrifice their own children for the purpose of attacking innocent Israelis," said government spokesman David Baker. Abdu's neighbors in Nablus said the boy belonged to the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, a militant group. His family, however, said Abdu was no terrorist. Israeli soldiers are increasingly on the lookout for kiddie bombers. They recently caught a 10-year-old Palestinian boy carrying explosives through the same roadblock. But unlike Abdu, Abdallah Quran apparently did not know the package he was paid $1 to carry was explosives. Both boys are students at the same school.

    The racists are Palestinian Nazis who praise Israeli buses being blown up with old people on board. Pizza restaurant and Disco's where teenagers hung out, blown up.
    Crude racism was an old man in a wheel chair is pushed off a ship alive, because he was a Jew.
    Does the name Leon Klinghoffer ring a bell?

  4. Ken Kelso says:

    Palestinians get more aid per capita then any people on earth yet they are always angry. All foreign aid should be cut off till they grow up, stop firing missiles at civilians, and learn to be productive humans instead of moochers and terrorists.

    My advice to these Pals is very simple.
    Quit trying to blow up innocent Israeli families on vacation. stop trying to slaughter Israeli's eating Pizza. You want your welfare handout from the West, than stop with the terrorism and your child abuse death cult.

    Hamas and Fatah are always ready to sacrifice women and children for their greed and hatred.

    The Palestinians will blow up the same hospital that gave them excellent care. The will try to blow up the power plant providing electricity from Israel. Their hate knows no end. Until they love their children more than they hate the Jews as Golda Meir said.

    Even a Rat in a sewer will care for it`s young, Yet the Palestinians use their women and children as human shields,.
    They have there children run across a field full of land mines.
    The Pals probably tell them that if you blow up you will have 72 toys.

  5. sure, the IDF, the most moral army in the world would do this thing…

  6. What a bunch liars, trouble makers.

  7. Kerry should not be wasting gas and should stay home and pray that treachery leaves him.
