More Palestinian Reactions To Kidnapping: The Most Disturbing Of All (Updated)

Update: I realize there is now a global movement to pose kids with the three fingers representing the 3 kidnapped Israeli teens. So not all of the kids pictured below are palestinian.

Regarding the possibility that some of the below kids do not actually know the meaning of what they are doing, I acknowledge that. But even if that is the case, the fact their parents have “posed them” to celebrate the kidnapping is still very disturbing, and reflects the kind of education they can look forward to.

All the below photos are sourced. They were taken from public groups, where they were proudly submitted, not the Facebook pages of individuals. Click on the source links and run the Arabic through Google translate if you so desire.

And one more thing. I do not wish any harm on these cute kids. I pray they rise above the hateful education they are receiving.

Further update: There are some claiming at least some of these photos have nothing to do with the support of the kidnappings but rather supporting Mohammad Assaf, the Arab Idol winner.

Since I did not take any of the photos, I cannot confirm or deny this. But what I can say is this: the photos were taken from Arab Facebook sites posting them in connection with the kidnappings. So if any of them were co-opted for the wrong “cause”, the fault lies with the people posting them to these sites in support of this crime. And it does not change the fact that photos of kids are being used to celebrate a war crime.

Having said that, if I am provided with proof any of these photos are not related to the kidnappings – despite the captions – I will remove them from the post.

Further further update: Facebook has blocked the group into which a majority of the pictures we have on this page were put. They did this on the grounds of “hate speech or symbols”. We do have most of these images downloaded.

Final update: See latest post.

Don’t get me wrong. The images of ecstatic palestinians handing out sweets, as well as the other callous reactions from them and their supporters, are disturbing. But I am even more repulsed by these next ones of cute kids seemingly reveling in the kidnapping of three boys not that much older than themselves.

    these are the children of yishmael

    so im neither shocked nor disgusted

    it cannot be helped

    it is genetic

      That’s not true. Everyone is born with a choice as to the path they’ll follow and you will see some “children of yishmael” who dedicate their lives to teaching others the truth (this site often posts about them). I do however put the blame on their parents in this situation and hope that these children will change their attitudes and become independent thinkers.

      • jackie jackson

        It’s called apostocy and will never happen, grow a brain, they KILL APOSTATES, even when they are THIER own flesh and blood,

      • Rat

        same goes for all the zionist youth out there and islamists and christian extremists, the world would be a much better place if all children became independent thinkers instead of blind followers

      Racism is NOT genetic. It is learned and these children have been taught to hate. Stupidity however, that is genetic.

      • http://shimonafromthepalace.wordpress.com Shimona from the Palace

        True – it IS learned. The trouble is, with most racists, it’s taught so early, it’s practically imbibed with their mothers’ milk.

      • janbn

        Sure they have been taught to hate. They have been well instructed in hatred by the IDF and by the settlers. They learn to hate when their home is demolished as have been at least 25,000 Palestinian homes since 1967. They learn to hate when the IDF blows open their door in the middle of the night and comes in to arrest a member of the family. They learn to hate when their young friends are shot and killed. They learn to hate when the family’s olive and fruit trees are destroyed. They learn to hate when they see their father humiliated by a teenage punk IDF soldier. They learn to hate when their mother dies in childbirth by the road because the IDF won’t let the mother get to the hospital. Oh yes, Israel is a master at teaching hate.

        It is too bad that the Palestinian kids don’t have a chance to meet Jews who come without a uniform and a gun. It is too bad that they don’t meet Jews who come in peace and not to take their land. When the only Jews that these childen see are those who make their lives miserable it is no wonder that they learn hatred. Wouldn’t you were you in the same situation?

    And to think that a member in good standing of the Muslim Brotherhood is a senior official with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. And where is Obama? When the going gets tough, the tough go golfing.

    • Perplexed

      How many Jewish Americans voted for this Muslim sympathizer in the White House? The way things are looking in the middle east; it doesn’t look good for our friends in Israel.

      • ahad_ha_amoratsim

        Not quite 80% in the 2008 election — roughly the same percentage as the Jews in Mitzrayim who died during the 9th plague because they were too mired in Egyptian culture to be redeemed.
        If you find that a scary parallel, you are in good company.

  • Comrade X

    Walt – your racism is unhelpful and, frankly, nauseating. This kind of nonsense is precisely what we need to get away from.

    • jackie jackson

      Since when was wanting peace ” racist” there will never be peace until Islam is pushed back to the hole it crawled out of, and please tell???? What race is Muslim, it is the cult of death, nothing more nothing less, every day islams followers get more evil,

      • Rat

        Islam is not a race, it’s a religion just lke judaism is not a race but a religion. big difference…if you think your bigotry is “wanting peace” then good luck with that…PS: the “hole” it crawled out of is the Middle East, same as all 3 abrahamic religions…

        • http://shimonafromthepalace.wordpress.com Shimona from the Palace

          “Judaism” is a religion. But apart from the Jewish religion, there is also a Jewish People – not a race, but an ethnic group.

        • janbn

          There are many times when I think that all religion is the curse of the earth. Millions of people have been killed in the name of religion from the beginning of history. Every religion has participated in the killing. Not one religion is free from having blood on its hands.

    • dabney_c

      Racism? Is that what you call exposing the child abuse going on in Palestine?

      • cba

        This is one of the very few times when I disagree with you–I think that walt kovac’s comment that the hatred and child abuse on display is “genetic” is bigoted and unhelpful.

        As far as I’m concerned it’s cultural.

        • dabney_c

          Oh, wait. I missed Comrade X’s first word: “Walt”. I thought s/he was addressing Aussie Dave – as in, telling him it’s racist to post these pictures. Thanks for the correction. And yes, this is most certainly a cultural issue, not genetic!

  • AegysLTS

    I can only feel sorry them, that their parents grew up in hatred and chose to raised their kids in hatred.

    • http://mapugavalera86.pe/ Mario Augusto Puga Valera

      Me too. It’s a really cruel world.

    • Steve Loeb

      Its the norm for them. I have a Christian Syrian friend who has many Jewish friends but growing up, this sort of bigotry against Israel and Jews was the norm at the dinner table and now its just second nature to her. We just don’t ever discuss it because we love each other so much and know we will never reconcile this

      • Baba Wawa

        Are you Jewish? How do you reconcile having a friend who hates you?

        • Steve Loeb

          Because I’ve come to see it in a different light. Its an unconscious hate. It’s a blind spot which is the result of her upbringing. Its irrational and she seems to compartmentalize it – there are Jews, and there are Israelis. Jews are OK, Israelis not so much – but only in her imagination. Those she knows up front and personal I think she sees in a different light. I think its all very confusing for her and many like her – which is why I think the issue of Jew hate in the mid east and muslim countries could be moved forward but only if the western institutions stand up and call it out for what it is. The EU, the UN and Western countries ALL need to challenge it the moment they hear or see it – and they need to do so very loudly. It boggles the mind that those of the intellectual class in for example Egypt will write intellectual essays using the most idiotic Jewish conspiracy tropes as if there’s any basis of fact. I just have to see those who have murdered children close up – like the Fogel family murderers who showed absolutely zero remorse in Court. How does one stab to death a sleeping toddler and show no remorse I ask myself? They can’t possibly perceive those they murdered as human – and for that notion to have stuck, it was put there from day one by parents and reinforced everyday. And it was never challenged. Not by schools, mosques, friends, books, media – everyone believed the same poison. Jews are not fully human, and Christians not much better.

          • dabney_c

            So what if they don’t see Jews as human? How many decent people do you know who’d barbarically stab a sleeping animal? Only sociopaths behave that way.

            • Steve Loeb

              You’re asking the wrong question. Ask – How many decent people do you know who’d barbarically stab a sleeping demon – because that’s what they believe we are. And the answer to that is – quite a few

              • dabney_c

                Well, then, I ask how you can befriend and love someone who believes your people are demons. You have a much stronger stomach than I have.

                • Shawn Peters

                  Or perhaps you just have a backbone.

            • ahad_ha_amoratsim

              Because they don’t see the Jew as a dumb animal deserving of compassion, but as a rabid dog, a venomous snake, or a dangerous bacteria, that must be eliminated for the protection of humanity.

          • ahad_ha_amoratsim

            I’ve had similar experiences in the US — Christians who felt that Jews as a whole were no good, but that there Jewish friends were exceptions.

        • kb6kgx

          Are you stupid? If someone is a “friend”, by definition that person does not hate you.

      • AegysLTS

        Unbelievable that even Christians could joined in the hate bandwagon, without realizing they are just another one of them infidels.

        • Guy Ratner

          AegysLTS- George Habash, the founder of the PLO, was Christian, so there is no lack of animosity even there. That said, Christian Arabs are usually a lot less radical and more open to co-existence with Jews. Recent years have seen some dramatic improvements in Jewish-Christian relations in Israel, as many Christian Arabs have come to accept Israel as an island of safety in a Middle East rapidly becoming “Christian-rein”.

          • Rat

            *founder of the PFLP, he was always in constant conflict with the PLO and especially Arafat who was in fact the founder of the PLO

            • Rat

              George Habash was, as are most arab christians, for a one democratic state solution for jews, christians and muslims to live together in peace in Israel/Palestine, he had no hatred towards the jews and as you mentioned, called for co-existence between all religions but hated zionism and muslim extremism with a passion just like most of us christian arabs.

              • ahad_ha_amoratsim

                “jews, christians and muslims to live together in peace in Israel/Palestine”?
                You mean the way they did under Christian rule, where Muslims were banned and Jews lived on the sufferance of Christians and could be murdered, raped or robbed at will, restricted in their right to practice their religion, their holy places desecrated, subjected to special confiscatory taxes and to forced conversion?
                Or did you instead mean the way they did under Muslim rule, where Christian and Jews lived on the sufferance of Muslims and could be murdered, raped or robbed at will, restricted in their right to practicetheir religion , their holy places desecrated, and subjected to special confiscatory taxes and to forced conversion with special taxes and and were fair game?

                • dabney_c

                  Well, he sure didn’t mean under Jewish rule because Christians, Muslims and Jews of Israel live together in peace right now under Jewish rule — but that appears to be an intolerable situation for the rat.

                  • cba

                    Well said.

          • kb6kgx

            DR. George Habash was not only Christian, but a PHYSICIAN, and not only that, a PEDIATRICIAN, I seem to recall reading. He was a smart guy, graduated first in his medical school class at American University of Beirut.

            However, he made quite a switch from a career dedicated to SAVING lives to one dedicated to the slaughter of innocents.

        • ahad_ha_amoratsim

          Are you at all familiar with the pre-WWII history of Europe? Are you at all familiar with the teachings of Christian churches — of all denominations — about Jews through at least the 1950s? Do you know what replacement theology (also called supercessionism) is, and that until a few short decades ago it was the norm rather than the exception, even in the US?

        • Steve

          As a Christian, I have NEVER heard another true Christian have ANYTHING negative to say about Jewish people. Christians consider Jews to be G-d’s chosen people.

      • Todd R. Kedes

        Steve. This is Islamic ands Arab Supremacist thought no different than White Supremacist thought founded on religious justifications. Would you stay friends with a Nazi who also saw Jews as sub human? It’s no different. They also were trained to hate from an early age and also murdered babies for the same reason. We were evil in their eyes. She’s bigoted, prejudiced and no love lost. The Best you could do is educate her about her bigotry. If she’s not willing to try to challenge and accept that the family she loves are a bunch of scum bag racists that spew Jew hatred at every meal then you are loving a Nazi believer who’s send you to the crematorium before questioning her own upbringing.

        • Rat

          I happen to be very good friends with two Israelis, one of which served in the idf in occupied south lebanon in the 90’s, he was an occupier in my country, but since they both now see zionism for the racist supremacist fundamentalist backwards ideology that it is and have awakened from the hate and racism they were force fed from an early age, i have absolutely no problem calling them my friends and have nothing but respect for them…maybe you should question your own upbringing, as Einstein said you only start to learn once you start to unlearn all you have been taught growing up…

            Zionism is NOT racist or fundamentalist or supremacist in any way shape or form – thats just BS – some people are. but Israel proves Zionism is certainly not. Multicultural, gender freedom – and more so then certainly any country in THAT region FREE in ALL respects – and even more importantly more so then most countries in the world. The evidence is all right there. Are there various bumps along the way? Yes. Israel isn’t a perfect society because people aren’t perfect. But its pretty damn close and always working to achieve something better.. When I see just ONE Arab organization that defends Israeli Jews and their rights – talk to me, but until then, anyone trying to sell the evils of Zionism while soft peddling that vile pigs and apes stuff thats the mothers milk of the Arab society is denying a reality that we ALL see. One look at the Egyptian or Jordanian intellectual class where the most vile Jewish conspiracy and supremacist notions are propagated says it all. Finally for all who don’t seem to understand there are various degrees of Jew hate – some of it in fact benign or unintended I have this to convey. My older sister went to a well known art school in NYC where she roomed with a Socialite from Washington DC who never met a Jew in person. They became fast friends even though early on her roommates asked my sister if she could see her horns … the roommate really didn’t know. She didn’t mean anything by it, didn’t understand how offensive it was – just didn’t know. Was she an anti Semite? I suppose you could describe her as an unintended anti Semite who had no desire to bash Jews but she was full of the stereotype and having never met one until my sister, just didn’t know. That is often the case and my Syrian friend on the one hand has many close Jewish friend living in NY, but she also has a loving older sister who still lives in Michigan in a Syrian community and sees Israelis in a very stereotypical way combined with her personal experience of old wars and how I suppose it looks from the other side of that. When she was a little girl from Syria and later on from Beirut and my friend hears those stories and sees it with her sisters eyes so she’s torn and although I’ve been in one argument with her, what we’ve both learned is just not to discuss any of it and we are fine. There are many other things we share being friends for more then 30 years. She’s certainly no anti Semite. I think her views are closer to an Israeli Leftists – and I have relatives in Israel who are no different so not everyone is a hater in the true sense of that word

              OK, let me make this really simple for ya….
              Whenever you claim something was “given to you by God” & are willing to use violence against anyone who disagrees
              or stands in your way of reclaiming it…… YOU’RE A FUNDAMENTALIST!!!!! Whether you like it or not!

              So just because you’re happy to lie to yourself about our current reality & believe in a patently false historical Zionist narrative….. it doesn’t mean anyone else has to anymore.

              Because the truth is…. Israel was FOUNDED on & is SUSTAINED by the very same 3 despicable beliefs you so pitifully attempt to deny.

              • Steve Loeb

                Quote all the individual rabbis you want – they speak for themselves. Did Phelps of the Westboro Baptist Church speak for ALL Baptists? All Christians? These Rabbis don’t speak for an entire nation or for an entire people. Unlike the Muslim Arab world, its not blasphemy to disagree with any of them, its not a crime to call them idiots. You see in Israel and with Jews, we all have the freedom to be jerks without having our heads cut off. Refreshing isn’t it?

                For that sort of thing, you’ll need to look at those you defend who when they step out of line or are different in any way – are beheaded or crucified – and if you don’t believe it just have a look at the road to Baghdad which is currently littered with heads without bodies, or perhaps a crane in Tehran where at any day you might find a homosexual being hung just because he/she is gay… I mean seriously, you are grasping desperately for some straws here.

                How many Arabs are living just in Israel?
                About 1,7 million

                How many gays are living freely in ALL the Arab countries – remind me

                How many in Israel?

                Open your eyes man – are you that blind
                Do you believe what you see or does it have to be written by Haaretz?

                So what you want people to buy into is the most multi -cultural freest most progressive country in the Mid east is really a supremacist and racist etc etc ?? And of course apartheid and all the rest of the big lie when in fact all one need to do is look … you don’t Haaretz to tell you what you can see right there in front of your face.

                You’re asking everyone to ignore what they see and hear and watch because none of its true – Haaretz swears to it

                You and the bunch of you are so pathetic it borders on laughable only because it is so open and obvious for ALL to see – if they want to

                fyi … THIS is what Zionism actually is – and the rest is a cartoon – one that it seems you need to believe so enjoy that.

                Zionism is a movement for (originally) the re-establishment and (now) the
                development and protection of a Jewish nation in what is now Israel. It
                was established as a political organization in 1897 under Theodor Herzl,
                and was later led by Chaim Weizmann.

                There rest is a figment of your imagination

                  rav ovadia was a gadol and did speak for me and the quote was taken out of context….just as the majority of his quotes, used to shduch the man were

                  just as individual portions of talmud are taken out of context

                  comparing a gadol hador to fred phelps is a bezoyin

              • janbn

                Then we have the late and hopefully unlamented Rabbi Ovadia, chief rabbi of the Shah party who declared that the only function of the goyim ( a word I detest) is to serve the Jews. I wonder if those Christian Zionists who fall all over themselves worshiping Israel know that is what the late Rabbi and many of his followers think of them?

                • http://shimonafromthepalace.wordpress.com Shimona from the Palace

                  What have you got against the word “goyim”? Do you even know what it means? It means “nations” – with the connotation of “other nations” i.e. apart from Israel. That’s all it means.

                  • janbn

                    Yeah, I know what “goyim” means. It is a derogatory word used to talk about non-Jews. My Jewish parents never used that word but my religious Jewish in-laws used that word when talking about someone who wasn’t Jewish. If that non-Jew wasn’t bright he or she was referred to as having a “goyishe Kopg.” They also referred to non-Jews as “shiksas and shaygetz” My in-laws were very nice people but like so many other Jews they thought nothing wrong in using words that were derogatory to those who weren’t Jewish.

                    And how about Jewish teachings that say “Thank G-d I wasn’t born a gentile. Thank G-d I wasn’t born a woman.”

                    I wonder how many non-Jews know about that. Those words could certainly be used to stir up anti-Semitism and maybe that was one of the reasons so long ago. You can’t set yourself up as being better than others and expect the “others” to like you.

                    • cba

                      So do you know what “Lo yisa goy el goy cherev” means (from the Book of Isaiah)?

                      Or, when God tells the Israelites, “Ve-atem tihiyu li mamlechet kohanim ve-goy kadosh”?

                      “Goyim” certainly CAN be used pejoratively (and it seems that your in-laws did so–there are bigots in every group), but it isn’t INTRINSICALLY pejorative.

                    Go shine them yourself if you know how to do that.

                    As a Jew, I found Ovadia’s comment to be totally offensive. Certainly if most “goyim” (a word I hate) knew what this vile rabbi had said they might start getting a bad opinion of Jews. Do you agre with what he said?

          • youandme2

            You recognize they’re hated and threatened and thus lack the safety you smugly take for granted.

            But the movement to acquire a small safe place despite the ubiquitous hate and threat is “backwards?”

            Is the Christian need for a safe place in Lebanon (or Egypt, or Syria, or Nigeria….) backwards, racist, etc etc? Basic safety and survival, what immorality and racism!!!!

          • Steve Narn

            Because the sad truth is that many catholic priests ARE pedophiles!

            Just like the sad truth is that Israel is one of the most hateful, racist, manipulative, violent & criminal countries on the planet.

            Which has now become so obvious to the whole world (due to the countless videos of violent, hateful Zionists in action on the internet) that even the international Jewish community is quickly deserting the shameful (& shameless) racial supremacist monster they’ve created en masse.

            Oh, and BTW, according to dozens of recent news reports, child sexual abuse in the Orthodox Jewish community is also widespread & has been for decades. With victims often forbidden by religious authorities from informing the police, & their abusers protected from prosecution by whole communities.

            Israel also has one of the worlds WORST records for human trafficking & didn’t even have laws AGAINST IT until just over 10 years ago.

            As I said…. SAD!!!

        You have to realize where L appears to be coming from. Since Jews are by definition the worst people in the world, while believing themselves superior to everyone else, then of course they must be at least as bad as the people who want to destroy them. So from L’s point of view, L is telling the truth and reality is a lie.

      Yes, there are many apologists among the Jews that feel as you do. One of them submitted a thesis that argued that the reason Jewish soldiers don’t rape Palestinian women is because they view them as less than human. Feh.

      Ah, like Captain Garcia in the old Zorro tv show. “How do I know so? Because I think so!” Our problem is that we have no death penalty, we drop leaflets before bombs, we use tear gas against rocks. I don’t know if you’re Jewish. If you’re not, then you’re projecting your miserable and hateful world view upon the Jews, as many did before you. If you are, once again, your problem is excessive empathy for people that dream about killing us.

    You’ve got to be kidding. They are exemplars of a culture whose most serious ethical quandary is whether to put captured soldiers in a ditch and shoot them, or to decapitate them, and celebrating kidnapping teenagers shocks you???? You think that exposure to civilized Jews has made any difference???? About as much as exposing snakes to mice would.

    • cba

      The point being, Eliezer, that it is precisely by pushing such celebration upon their children that Palestinian society educates future generations to behave that way.

      It is the corruption of innocent minds that is so horrifying, both as a horrifying act in and of itself, and as a strong sign that nothing is going to change any time soon.
