Bill Clinton, Want Peace, Start with Children

“Israel denies link to ‘tear gas death’ of Palestinian baby” is Yahoo news headline.

On Friday, the Palestinian ministry said Ramadan Thawabteh was asphyxiated in his Bethlehem home by tear gas fired by Israeli soldiers during clashes with Palestinian stone throwers.

“Following both medical and operational investigations it was concluded that there is no correlation of IDF (Israeli army) activity in the village and the tragic death of the infant,” a military spokesman said Saturday.

“Tear gas was used dozens of metres (yards) away from the Thawabteh residence, and no riot dispersal means were directed at the residence,” a statement said.

When an Israeli spokesperson makes a statement after an investigation, it is placed in quotation marks.

When a “Palestinian ministry” makes a statement immediately after an incident, it is stated as fact and the headlines get worse.

But, no matter what happens, a new blood libel is great for a photo op.

What really, really gets me upset, is the blatant child abuse that the world is ignoring.

Check out this propaganda photo from PA sources. The death culture that children are exposed to should be condemned, but I hear nothing.

Instead of trying to protect their children, these boys are propped in front of a dead child wrapped in a flag,

What kind of a culture is that? What kind of a country is that? What kind of a future can there be for them?

Where are the human rights groups rising up to protect children from this blatant abuse?

Bill Clinton, how about a little attention to these children?

If you really care about peace, start with saving these children from a culture that loves death.

I lived in the United States, Canada and Australia before moving to Israel in the midst of the Second Lebanon War. For the last ten years, walking the streets of Jerusalem, the scenes I saw every day did not resemble the ones familiar in the Western media. Now I try to share those positive images with the world, what is really happening in Jerusalem, Israel, The Real Jerusalem Streets
