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.

This is why we there won’t be peace.

Inspired by this IDF Blog post, as well as this one from the Jewish Press, which contained some of the above photos.
