Israeli Crimes Of No Importance

The ongoing Israeli apartheid regime and occupation of Palestine is one of the longest running crimes on the surface of the planet and today Israel was once again shown to be far from the mythical land of liberty and human rights that it's supporters try to portray.
A UNICEF report out today revealed that thousands of Palestinian children were systematically injured, tortured and used as human shields by Israel during the past 10 year period.
The report found over 7,000 children aged 9 to 17 were arrested, interrogated and kept captive and 'hundreds of Palestinian children have been killed and thousands injured over the reporting period as a result of the state party military operations, especially in Gaza where the state party proceeded to conduct air and naval strikes on densely populated areas with a significant presence of children, thus disregarding the principles of proportionality and distinction'.
It was revealed that the Israeli Defence Force forced Palestinian children at gunpoint to act as human shields 'Palestinian children arrested by Israeli military and police are systematically subject to degrading treatment, and often to acts of torture, are interrogated in Hebrew, a language they did not understand, and sign confessions in Hebrew in order to be released' the report said.
Children are fitted with leg chains and shackles to appear before military courts, and are often held in solitary confinement. The committee blames Israel’s 'long-standing occupation' of Palestinian territory for the 'severe and continuous violations of the rights of Palestinian children and their families'.
In response the Israeli Foreign Ministry said the latest UN report to point out the abhorrent treatment dished out by Israel as of 'no importance'.
Yet another report to add to the already vast pile of Israeli crimes against humanity.

i looked for the report and could not find it...

ages 9 to 17 huh:
- how many were 9?
- in the USA ages 14 and above can be tried as adults for felonies
- at 17 i got a draft card
- at 17 americans can join the military
- at 14 many "children" in the middle east are armed combatants

i have no doubt there have been israeli abuses. none. i have no doubt the report is manipulative. i suspect a counter-report could provide data based challenges for most or all of the report.

One UN report with the catchy title of 'Concluding observations on the second to fourth periodic
reports of Israel, adopted by the Committee at its sixty third session (27 May – 14 June 2013)'.

It's wonderful how Q never accepts evidence that shows just how barbaric Israel, and its enabler America, is!

It shows clearly just how indoctrinated he is and he has 300 million sheeple comrades who are similarly afflicted.

It also shows just how determined he is to neutralize any and all of your articles which try to point out the horrific war crimes and imperialism carried out by Israel and the U.S.

Giving Q the flick would improve your website no end, Lucy. He is a mindless loser who has no morals or integrity, a white ant in human form!

I would never flick anyone David, each to their own view and we can debate the difference. Away from politics, q is an Arsenal fan, we share a keen interest in the joys of astronomy, meteorology, camping, music, nature, reading and drinking coffee so we have much in common and as much to agree on as we have to disagree on.
I know you won't agree but he also seems a decent person (even if he doesn't get 90% of my jokes) and that counts for a lot.
