ED Noor: The main thing here is the brutal
New Khazaria Israeli power that tramples. The main thing is to brutalize. To crush. To intimidate. Not as a means but as an end.
The resultant creation of angry people who will be provoked to rise up will give Israel her excuse to blast Palestine.
Meanwhile, I offer the following quotes to set your mood as you read this article. At the bottom I also include a few links to previous work on this horrific abuse of human rights.
One other thing. According to Talmudic or Israeli law, a child becomes an adult at the age of 13, hence the big Jewish fuss over Bat and Bar Mitzvahs. However, according to the rest of the world, a child is not legally adult until 16 years. This is another reason that Palestinian children are treated in the same manner as adults.
Last year an IDF source told Breaking the Silence
“We treat them roughly even though know the vast majority are innocent. This is how we are trained to get information”.
Nachman Abramovic demonized Palestinian children stating:
“They may look young to you, but these people are terrorists at heart. Don’t look at their deceptively innocent faces, try to think of the demons inside each of them … I am absolutely certain these people would grow to be evil terrorists if we allowed them to grow… would you allow them to grow to kill your children or finish them off right now? You honest and moral people ought to differentiate between true humans and human animals. We do kill human animals and we do so apologetically. Besides, who in the West is in a position to lecture us on killing human animals. After all, whose hands are clean?”
Arion Sharon is quoted in a 1956 interview with General Ouze Herham as saying:
I don’t know something called international Principles. I vow that I will burn every Palestinian child (that) will be born in this area.
The Palestinian woman and child are more dangerous than the man because the Palestinian child’s existence infers that generations will go on, but the man causes limited danger.
I vow that if I was just an Israeli civilian and I met a Palestinian I would burn him and I would make him suffer before killing him. With one hit I’ve killed 750 Palestinians (In Rafah in 1956).I wanted to encourage my soldiers by raping Arabic girls as the Palestinian woman is but a slave for Jews, and we do whatever we want to her and nobody tells us what we shall do but we tell others what they shall do.”

The Ministry said that following the latest aggression on Gaza, and the upgrade of Palestine’s status at the UN, Israeli soldiers stepped-up their assaults, especially against Palestinian youths and children.
It said that %95 of the kidnapped children were attacked, beaten and abused during their arrest, and added that most of the children were kidnapped from their homes between the hours of 2 and 4 at dawn, and that the army violently broke into their homes by smashing through the doors, and caused damage to the furniture and property during violent searches.
87% ~ Children subjected to some form of physical violence while in custody.
91% ~ Believed to be blindfolded at some point during their detention.
12 % ~ The minimum age of criminal responsibility, as stipulated in the Military Order 1651.
62% ~ The percentage of children arrested between 12am and 5am.
The children were cuffed and blindfolded, and the soldiers violently attacked and insulted their parents who attempted to defend them and prevent their arrest. The soldiers then kidnapped the children taking them to unknown destinations without any warrants.
“Most of the kidnapped children were tortured and abused during their arrest; soldiers would beat and kick them with their weapons and boots, and sometimes with batons, this is happening besides the insults and the curses, in many cases the soldiers fired rounds of live ammunition, gas bombs and concussion grenades”, the Ministry said.
The detained children were also beaten while being transported to detention and interrogation centers, the soldiers would punch and kick them, would also force them to sit on the floor of the military jeeps and would place their legs on their faces and heads.
In many cases, soldiers driving those jeeps and trucks would speed up and then step on the brakes, an issue that pushes the kidnapped children around those jeeps causing their bodies and heads to smash around.
When the kidnapped children are taken to interrogation centers, they are tortured and threatened to be continuously and endlessly tortured “unless they confess and provide some names of friends and relatives”.
In many cases, Israeli interrogators would subject the kidnapped children to rounds and rounds of interrogation while keeping them sitting on small chairs and their hands would be tied behind their backs and their legs would be shackled; the children would also be blindfolded, and would also be forced to stand against the wall for several hours, outside, under the rain and extreme summer sun.
The Ministry also reported that Israeli interrogators repeatedly used electric shocks while interrogating the detainees, and would force them to drink boiled water similar to what they did with Nassar Aref Jaradat, 16, from Sair town near the southern West Bank city of Hebron.
Nassar was kidnapped on February 2, 2010, and was taken to the Etzion military camp where he was forced to stand under the cold and the rain for several hours, and was repeatedly beaten and punched, and when he was taken to the interrogation room, the interrogators shocked him with electric currents until he lost consciousness.
Most of the kidnapped children were taken to interrogation centers in illegal Israeli settlements such as Keryat Arba’, Maaleh Adumim, Dan Shomron, and several other settlements where the detainees were interrogated and tortured and the Red Cross was never informed about their whereabouts.
There are 140 Palestinian children who are currently under interrogation or awaiting trial, and a total of 200 who are held by Israel, including 32 who are under the age of 16.
Similar to detained adults, Palestinian children held by Israel are deprived from their basic and internationally guaranteed rights; their families and lawyers are not granted any information about the location where they are held and in most cases the reason behind their arrest.
Israel continuously violates all related international laws and treaties, especially regarding the protection of children, and continues to kidnap, torture and imprison Palestinian children, in addition to the fact that most of the casualties in Israel’s repeated wars on Gaza are civilians, mainly children and infants.
Israel also treats the kidnapped Palestinian children as “terrorist to be” and uses all illegal measures and sorts of torture and abuse against them, including sleep deprivation, extreme torture, depriving them from family and lawyer visits, food and water deprivation, sexual harassment and tries to recruit them to work for the Israeli security by telling them that the torture would stop once they start to cooperate.
ED Noor: In reality, and the Israelis know this, these actions are creating those very terrorists to be! This is all part of the “divine provocations” Israel uses so freely against her perceived (and self created) enemies. See quotes above to further understand the mindset.
It is worth mentioning that Israel also applied a military law known as Military Order #132 that allows the army to kidnap and interrogate Palestinian children who are 12 years old.
