So it's come to this...targeting our children. No wonder some fall prey to this tactic, I probably, no I know I would.
And while pondering this article , think about the children when you think about the services the republicans have been and want to cut, and the children who will needed medical, no food or very little, and no home to sleep in, but a car if yhete lucky.
This to is terrorism, right here in America.

That's the mindset we're dealing with in Afghanistan! There's no humanity left in the Taliban, if there ever was any to begin with. I don't believe there's any way to change the mentality of these men. They'll keep crawling out of holes like cockroaches, abusing and murdering their women, strapping remote-control bombs onto women and children and sending them into crowds of innocent people, decapitating journalists and anyone they perceive as an enemy (which is anyone who isn't a member of the Taliban), beating and maiming girls who want an education, and worse. These men are hate personified, and taking the life of a scared and innocent 8-year old boy meant nothing to them. They don't know what it's like to be human, and that's why we need to end the war. We can't win it. My heart goes out to the women and children of Afghanistan, but we haven't been able to help them yet, and there's a good possibility that we never will.

'Israel' has been shooting children (using them as target practice) on a daily basis for the last 63 years - obviously your "good friend Alexandra" hasen't got around to "alerting" you about that yet. . .

The death of innocents, especially innocent children must hang heavily on their souls.
When I was a child I worked for the Germans as and eastern worker. We has a crow that would fly away every morning and come back at night. It was a very lovable being in that it teased us, took part in games, could "sing" songs in tune and generally would cheer us up every night. We had no radio and no television, but we had our crow. One night the crow did not come home.
We found it shot dead on the vegetable patch. We were told that it was a spy that carried messages to the Russians. I was heart broken and could not stop crying.
In the same way as that crow, this boy was innocent, The Palestinian children held prisoners in Israel are innocent, the children shot in Norway were innocent, the people in the twin towers on September 11th were innocent.
Among all this there is a hero - the Afghan policeman who sacrificed his son in order to save many others. There is no way that i should want to be in his shoes. Yet in my heart I honor that man. He should have and immortal poem written about him.

This group is not alone. Read memoirs of captives to Chechen Islamists: they kidnap infidels simply for money. If the ransom rejected, they start cutting fingers, ears, etc. If the ransom not paid then - they kill the person and try to sell its body to the victims.

In Afganistan, Afganis would from time to time kidnap even Arabs coming to fight on a Taliban side, keep them in cages and demand ransom as well. Both sides act in the name of someone Merciful.

This story is just another gruel example.

Ken D: "obviously your "good friend Alexandra" hasen't got around to "alerting" you about that yet. . . "

Hi Ken D, Alexandra here (thanks Cal my great friend for uploading this important story of chil abuse -- it is VITAL that we don't come to regard these vile abuses of children as " oh, typical .. to be expected .. heard it all before .. that's what they do .." -- these children need us as adults to stand up for them and, as Bob says, sadly so many other similar abuses in Libiya, Afganistan, Pakistan, Iran, etc need us to SPEAK out and DECLARE that this is NOT acceptable ..)

Oh, btw Ken D please show me even a SINGLE child hanging comitted by Israel .. there is NONE.

Apologies my friend Cal, but I cannot alert you on Israel hanging children, like Ken D seems to insist I do ..

@ Alexandra R. - Thank you for your considered opinion, believe me, it's a gem and should be forwarded far & wide for as many people as possible to see for themselves the ZIONIST MIND-SET. . . What you're saying is: It's OK for Israeli IDF Jews to routinely and casuallly kill palestinian children while using them as target practice - but when one of those 'mooslems' does something equally as hidious it's a No-No! That's where you're coming from is it? Well very nice I must say and God help us & save us from yous lot!

Bob Algeron (47)

Ken ,IDF has much better targets than Palestinian children!

IDF builds fake Arab villages to train their soldiers, and use hi-tech equipment pretty much everything. Later they sell that equipment to many armies in the world, including the most advanced ones, like US, India, etc.

You seem to mix up Israel and Chechnya: in Chechnya terrorists kidnap people for ransom to finance their jihad, and if they are not paid - try to use their captives how they can: cut fingers, slit throats, cut ears, etc, and may shoot at their limbs as well. I didn't see you protesting against Chechen atrocities, but you can find a few of my posts on care2, or just google it.

Please check your sources. Even Margaret did not post anything about Israelis executing an Arab child, that must be a good proof for you.

Send a Green Star to Cal Mendelsohn
Sending a Green Star is a simple way to say "Thank you"

You cannot currently send a star to Cal because you have done so within the last week.

Cal, kudos to you -- you do indeed ALWAYS report on REAL news without pulling punches as to who it involves or where.

So true Bob, even MM could not find or post a single news item where Israelis or IDF execute Arab children .. it's indeed because there ARE none .. it's not IDF or Zionist's style ..

IDF and Zionist style is to have compassion on mentally retarded children or other young children as young as 5 or 6 being used by HAMAS as suicide bombers with the button being remote controled..

There are plenty of these news items around, instances where IDF soldiers risked their own lives to walk over to a child wearing a suicide vest, to answer the child's tears, by removing the vest. I'm a proud Zionist and VERY proud of the compassion and bravery of IDFs.

Like child execution abuses, putting children in suicide vest is another issue on which we need to SPEAK out about for the sake of these child victims.

(BTW Ken D, can you perhaps refer me to any news items where IDFs or Zionists(Israelis) make use of children wearing suicide vests .. no, you can't even if you confer with MM because there is NONE.)

Ken, after reading your posts I am wondering why don't you show much more respect to the "Zionist Minds":

After all, according to you, they managed to "rule over the whole world", "steal American economy and politics", "oppress 500 Million Arabs", "make a number of inter-Arab and Inter-Muslims wars", "plant Bin-Laden", "plant a Jew Ahmadinejad" and do many other "world-scale enterprises", including "large-scale extermination of Palestinian Arabs with all that depleted uranium and a massacre in Jenin going largely unnoticed".

Aren't they super-human?

What words did you have in mind Bob? Oh, you mean concerning that place they call 'Israel' - otherwise known as the Zionist Entity and the world's No1 terrorist state and threat to world peace, and America's 'best friend'? Let me see now. . . There's the King David Hotel; The Lavon Affair; The USS Liberty; The Assassination of JFK; 9'11 - those the kind of words you were thinking of Bob?

Ken, you don't have a word for 500 million Arabs who "are oppressed" by 5 million Zionists?

A number of terrorist acts committed by Arabs against US would be much longer, more vicious and with no compensations and admissions of guilt paid and done by Israelis.

Blowing up US Army barracks with 280 sleeping peacekeepers in Beirut? Shooting at US diplomatic convoy in Gaza with victims? Blowing up planes? Seending Scotish pregnant girlfriend with unknown to her explosives hidden in her luggage? 9/11?

I could add here cooperation with Hitler and Nazis, attacks against UK interests and many other things. But that would be off topic.

So, do you or don't you have a word for 500 million Arabs who "are oppressed" by the 5 million Zionists?
