This is sad.. You people are like sheep. You're fed half truths and statistics, and if it fits your agenda you happily accept it as fact.
What's worse is you don't even bother to do any research, or any independent critical thinking for that matter, most of you, I'm sure, didn't even
bother reading the entire article.
The headline's enough, I guess.
How many of you, after viewing this topic, have concluded that Israeli soldiers have tried to molest, or tried to have sexual relations with
How many of you now believe that there is hard evidence that Israeli soldiers tortured Palestinian children?
How many of you now believe that this is some kind of policy of the Israeli people and the IDF?
Allow me to deny ignorance:
1) The article and video are not talking about soldiers molesting or trying to do anything of sexual nature to Palestinian children, they are
referring to claims by children that IDF interrogators tried or threatened them with things like electrocuting their testicles or inserting sticks up
their anus. There have been no claims of molestation or pedophilia.
2) There is no evidence. Most children say that they've been threatened, or interrogators "tried" to sexually assault them, but there's no
Now, why would a child lie? Well, what if that child delivered information to the IDF? When he gets back wouldn't it be easier to lie?
Children lie, whether they're Israeli, American, or Palestinian..
Even in the video "The IDF was not able to comment specifically on this case because CNN is complying with the family's request not to reveal his
identity".. How convenient..
And what's worse is that this is all presented as evidence, and not alleged claims. You seem to forget this is a blog, the writer can twist the fact
whichever way he wants.
3) Even in the article that was provided it says only 4% of detainees were assaulted- then why is everyone projecting this to the entire army? Why are
you all so quick to believe that this is some kind of IDF approved method, when even the numbers tell you otherwise?
All that being said it's said to hear that children are involved in this in any way.. Being captured by Israeli soldiers, or being threatened by an
interrogator is not something a child should go through.
At the end of the day this war should not be fought between children and soldiers- They should not be the ones holding the weapons, throwing rocks at
cars, or at people.
But it is how it is..
But you don't care, do you?
Nah.. You just care about being right and reinforcing your opinions..
How many of you can honestly say they haven't already taken sides? And that no matter what is shown to you you'd rather stick with your side?
See, I at least try to be objective.. But I live in Israel. I'm a part of it, and it's a part of me.. You guys? How much do you really know, and how
much is influenced by your friends, the news you watch, and the blogs you choose to read?
