Israel signed onto the International Convention on the Rights of the Child 3 Jul 1990, which it then ratified on 3 Oct 1991. For the body/wording of the Convention, go to
They are in violation of a Convention that they willingly signed onto - why are they not being held responsible??

This makes me see red. This is what their "g-d" sanctions, apparently. I'm glad I don't worship their "g-d".

Al Amjad, my friend, site this same article from another source, and I will believe it. You know I will.

And Jennifer, I really dislike informing you but "their" God is yours.

Todie I wanted to tell you that Amjad may not be able to get this news from other sources as in North America, there is a complete blackout on such information.

I will check Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International and some organizations working with children and if I can find anything, I will give it to Amjad to post.

It is something we all have to keep in mind right now.

I saw a film last week that all of Europe saw 4 years ago. It is still on the black list in North America. Even Europe are better informed than we are. That film is labeled contraband here. There is no reason why it should be. It's a BBC production.

But it tells truths we are not to know or we would rise up and demand an end to war and a break with Israeli policies regarding Palestine.

Many countries have signed the CRC and still violate children. America has NOT signed it and their ongoing veto at the UN keeps it from being enforced in other nations.

The American government has much to answer for as does Israel.

Thank you Amjad
