I know this post will probably raise some eyebrows and will probably be considered as propaganda by the pro Israel crowd but there should be no justification for these actions no matter who you are or what you believe in.




This is what happened to a Palestinian child who joined teenagers throwing stones at Israeli border police.

Muhammad Badwan was grabbed by officers and tied by an arm to the grille covering the windscreen of their security vehicle (circled).

Last night the 13-year-old’s father said the police had illegally used his son as a human shield to try to stop demonstrators throwing stones at them.

‘When I saw him on the hood of the jeep, my whole mind went crazy, ‘ said Saeed Baswan, a 34-year-old labourer. ‘It’s a picture you can’t even imagine. He was shivering from fear.’

Muhammad said: ‘I was scared when they got me at first. I thought they would put me in prison. I was scared a stone would hit me.’

The incident happened in Muhammad’s home village of Biddo, north-west of Jurusalem, which has become a flashpoint for violence between Israeli forces and demonstrators protesting against the building of an Israeli security fence.

The picture was published by an Israeli human rights group trying to expose the behavior of some Israeli security personnel. Rabbi Arik Ascherman, director of Rabbis For Human Rights, heard about the boy and tried to intervene with the police, demanding he be released.

The rabbi claimed he was head-butted by one of the officers and arrested. He said he intended to press charges against the police.

‘The boy was sitting on the hood of a vehicle, unsuccessfully trying to hold back his tears, shivering with fright, and with one arm tied to the screen protecting the windshield,’ he said.

‘We tried to calm him down and reassure him. I asked if he was hurt. He said he had been beaten and was in pain.

‘It is very depressing that we have come to this position where this is what we do.’The Israeli police said they were investigating the incident.

Yes, I acknowledge that the boy was throwing rocks and should have been dealt with accordingly. Tying him up to their armored vehicle was NOT the proper way to discipline this child. Anyone who defends this or downplays it as an overreaction has some serious soul searching to do.

And I also acknowledge it was stones being thrown and not bullets being fired thatthey were using him to stop, but stones can still cause a lot of damage. This just shows the cowardly intentions of the police in this incident.

I have looked into this story and many people are saying that this kid deserved it, and I have also heard that this was staged, I even heard people say that the child looked like he was having fun. It is quite clear that the child had fear on his face.

Israel has been caught using children as human shields various times but all I hear about is the "cowardly Islamic militants" using human shields, which is not the case. When you are trapped in an open prison and have no where else to go you are not hiding amongst civilians, you are living amongst your loved ones. Anyone who considers this hiding amongst civilians needs a reality check.

As for this incident, it saddens me that this must happen as often as it does and certainly leaves me wondering who the real terrorists are.

It's titled "The Day...", meaning one day; isolated.

American police would have, if lucky, tazered the child to death.

Also, the boy shouldn't have anything to worry about being tied to the truck if no one was going to fire rocks or bullets, as they should, towards the IDF vehicle.


Show me a picture of the IDF lobbing rockets into Gaza from an Israeli school, please.

You are right, I will change the title since this is a common occurence.

Thank you for the suggestion


It seems you are missing the whole point, they tied a child to an armored vehicle amid a protest in which rocks were being thrown. I'm not defending the rocks being thrown, but the tying the child up as a human shield is a disgusting act that should be condemned, you don't seem very concerned. It must be nice to have lived a sheltered life.

Alberta is a nice place, I have been there many times.

It takes a pretty sick mind to say the boy shouldn't have anything to worry about. This is probably the worst comment I've read this week.

islamists uses them as shields, but it was against bullets and bombs, not rocks. where are his parents by the way?, i guess if it's israeli soldiers, the kids are allowed to throw anything they want at them....teach them to hate while their young, that way they grow up trained and ready for jihad.

Oh stick around, it's sure to get cloudy in here.

He shouldn't have anything to worry about because his friends and fellow citizens would see him there and not throw any rocks or shoot any guns, because they don't want to harm their own people right? Oh wait.. UNLESS they mistaken him for an Israeli child?

You'd think an armoured vehicle would be immune to rocks.

Insurgents getting a pass for using human shields by Corruption Exposed? Wow, color me surprised.


When Taliban have been seen firing on US Troops while hiding behind kids, that's not "living amongst your loved ones"....that's using a human shield.

Strangely, according to the Koran and Hadith, while everyone else has to wait until the end of time to go to Islamic heaven, Jihadi suicide bombers go straight there.


"The gates of Paradise are under the shadows of the swords."

Hadith Muslim


The gates to paradise lie under the shadows of the swords, or the suicide vest apparently.

Can you imagine trying to live beside head cases like that?

People who blow themselves up on crowded buses?

Congratulations for the public showcase of your ignorance. What do the Taliban have to do with the Palestinians? That is a completely different ball game.

Let's not derail the discussion with the American invasion of Afghanistan which was based on lies.

Explanation: S&F!


Israel has been caught using children as human shields various times but all I hear about is the "cowardly Islamic militants" using human shields, which is not the case.

Note: All edits to bold and underline are mine own to highlight a point made by the OP'er.

Well ok then ... I agree and PLEASE HEAR/READ THIS ...


The FBI Building was a valid military target and as such placing a child care center in it was both illegal and immoral!


The USA is not allowed to use human shields OK!


Personal Disclosure: Who enabled these 19 childrens deaths ... THE US FEDERAL GOVERNMENT!



On April 19, 1995, McVeigh drove the truck to the front of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building just as its offices opened for the day. Before arriving, he stopped to light a 5 minute fuse. At 09:02, a large explosion destroyed the north half of the building. The explosion killed 168 people, including nineteen children in the day care center on the second floor, and injured 450 others.

McVeigh noted that he had no knowledge that the federal offices also ran a daycare center on the second floor of the building, and noted that he might have chosen a different target if he had known about the daycare center. According to Michel and Herbeck, McVeigh claimed not to have known there was a daycare center in the Murrah Building and said that if he had known it, in his own words:

It might have given me pause to switch targets. That's a large amount of collateral damage.


Which I had originally posted to this thread here ...

Actually, Hamas and the Taliban are both from the extremely violent Wahhabi Muslim sect. The hardcore fundamentalist Muslims who like to blow people up with suicide bombers.

Usually specially trained child suicide bombers


He must make his parents were proud. He is going straight to heaven apparently.
