Three Children Murdered in Gaza

Some news not "worthy" enough for the mainstream media...

The American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC) strongly condemns the killing earlier today of three Palestinian children in the Gaza Strip when an Israeli tank opened fire on the Jabaliya refugee camp which is located in the north of Gaza. According to media reports, two children, 10 and 12 years-old, were killed immediately. Their cousin, a 12 year-old girl, was pronounced dead after efforts to save her life failed. This brings the number of Palestinian children killed during this week, as a result of Israeli military operations, to nine.

ADC strongly condemns the killing of innocent civilians and is saddened at the tragic loss of children. The Gaza Strip, being one of the most densely populated places on earth with almost half of the population under the age of 15, has often seen indiscriminant killing of civilians and children in particular. More than 1.4 million people live in the 140 square miles (360 square kilometers) which is the Gaza Strip. According to the UN Development Programme (UNDP), 84.6% of Gaza's residents live below the poverty line (US $ 2/day).

They were murdered by their parents and their society, who used them as human shields while trying to murder Israeli children.

And here's the latest from your death cult:


Soldiers arrest Palestinian boy who approached them carrying two explosive devices


A 15-year-old Palestinian boy was arrested this week in the northern Gaza Strip after he attempted to carry out an attack against soldiers operating in the area.

According to information released on Thursday by the IDF, the youth approached the soldiers of a Golani unit carrying two explosive devices.

The soldiers overpowered the Palestinian boy, who was arrested and remanded for interrogation.

"The thwarting of this attack illustrates how teenagers in the Gaza Strip are involved in terror activities and are sent by terror groups to carry out operations, including ones from which they may not return alive," an IDF officer told Ynet. "The recruitment to terror groups does not start at age 18."

The officer added that the death of three Palestinian children on Wednesday by an IDF shell fired at rocket launchers in the northern Gaza Strip was not coincidental, accusing terror groups of making a cynical use of Palestinian children to carry out attacks against Israel.
