Israel Assassinates 11 Yr Old Sitting In A Fig Tree


www.maannews.net

TULKAREM ­ Ma'an -- The Israeli occupying forces shot intensively at a child on Friday, while he was sitting in a fig tree in Seida village, near the northern West Bank town of Tulkarem.

11-year-old Mahmoud Al Qarnawi was left bleeding on the ground by the Israeli troops. When his mother asked the soldiers if her son was alive, they said "maybe"

Sadly this happens every week in Palestina.


Palestinian Centre for Human Rights

16 - 22 August 2007

During the reporting period, IOF killed 16 Palestinians, including 3 children, and wounded 18 others, including 2 children, in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank.

For some more news from the front lines of Palestine I suggest:
Electronic Intifada

This kid was the same age as my daughter.

It makes me wonder what I'd do if this happened to my family??

Hence why the violence is just a spiral that never ends.

Well seriously all those palestinian kids deserve whats coming to them. Playing in a tree! Pfft! Should be made illegal. REally. What sort of world are we living in where kids play in trees? Are we all going to return to being monkeys? Next thing you know they'll start throwing rocks! Slinging Poo!

Though ...
I'm sure the israeli's thought when they saw someone in the tree was: "SNIPER IN THE TREE!!!! GOGOGO!!!" Bam, splat.

War is sad to see.

That's not how the ROE's should be. A counter sniper or any military solider must confirm the target before taking the shot. Especially if there is no fire coming from a particular direction or area. Shooting at individual people while not engaged in a current fire fight is a little different.

These people must come to justice.


A father or mother shouldn't bury their own child.

Oh yeah that's right I forgot, when the Israeli forces aren't playing football they like to hunt down and kill little kids just for sport!


Consider the source this story comes from, the ma'an news agency reports everything from a standpoint of hardcore Palestinian bias. I'm sure there is more to the story than what has been implicated here.

sp. mistakes

Wow, it seems this is old news from some of the posts here - or just what we accept as collateral damage.

Am I the only one COMPLETELY OUTRAGED that trained military personnel gun to death an 11 year old in a tree because he is 'wanted for resisting the occupation' !!

Can we hear from some military trained types, preferably those who are or have been in charge. If soldiers under your command did this, would that be considered ok?

No way are you the only one outraged over this, Rog...

This example is but one of many disgusting examples of Israeli overkill....Sure the Israeli's bleat about the Palestinians shooting rockets over Haifa or whatever, but when you look at the body count and the prisoner count, who is the major aggressor here ?

Good post Rog

Peace

That mentality is spread throughout the Israeli Community. These people will justify any thing as long as it furthers the goal of occupying Isreal with Jewish settlement. You have to admire their tenacity, but I'd be scared to death of their black and white religious mentality. Oh and if you oppose cutting off support to Israel, better be prepared to face one of the most biased, selfesh, powerful groups in the United States, The AIPAC. Regardless if what they are doing is totally illegal! I just hope your not looking to be re-elected.

I'm sick and tired of Israel, I'm tired of their intolerance, I'm tired of thier pushiness, I'm tired of thier "holier than thou" attitude, and I'm tired of them illegally ocupying Israel and expecting us to help them support it. Just wait, their arrogance will lead them to do something so big that even the UN won't be able to ingore it. I'm guessing they will end up killing a whole bunch of Palestinians in on fail swoop, and just assume that the rest of the world holds the same ignorant view of Palestinians as they do. Their religious fanaticism imho will be their eventual demise. God will not save you from a Nuclear war that you create. Lets hope that is not their fallback plan, but their intellinence level based upon past actions leads me to believe that "God" may end up being the reason that Humanity fails. just my 2 cents.

Oh and for the record, I have zero problem with anyone of the Jewsih faith, just a huge problem with the illegal occupation of another country. Everyone knows that if you want to occupy a Country, you have to invade it first. As long as they have a huge natural resource you can profit from. There are rules here people.

I'm with ya on this, Klev

They seem to have way more influence than they should outside their own country, for such a small population...

Money talks, BS walks, etc...

I think Hikix was using sarcasm - well I do hope so


I doubt the Israeli occupation apologists have the balls to join this thread.

IMHO it will be something like this, the slaying of a loan child, that will be the occupying force's downfall, rather than a mass murder.

Israel has been steadily losing its 'victimhood' status over the past few years - at least 'Outside the US'

I'm sorry i wasn't being sarcastic. A few months ago when the whole Lebanon thing went down i was venting about the use of cluster bombs and phosporous bombs by the isreali's. They were all smiling and told me who cares if those kids die, they are going to grow up to be terrorists. Theres a bunch of them here, they all seem to share the same sentiment, that somehow they are better then any other race of humans.
