 Children Soldiers - Israel Update   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
Or these children are being deliberately taken out of their homes, schools and playgrounds and being sent to the streets, alongside Palestinian rioters, snipers and terrorists -- with the express purpose of placing them in the line of fire in a calculated play for world sympathy.
In truth, however, the children are not the generals of this conflict, but, rather, the smoke screen masking the gunmen, petrol-bomb throwers and lynch mobs which have exacted their pound of Jewish flesh, unseen or ignored by the television cameras and the media crews.
Whether the children are seen as the generals of this conflict or merely its cannon-fodder in the Palestinian campaign to discredit Israel, it is clear that the deliberate use of children in armed conflict is entirely against international law.

 Targeting Children - Israel Update   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
The Palestinian use of children in warfare against Israel is not a marginal phenomenon, but one that has been systematically cultivated with devastating results.
Bir Zeit University, for example, asked Palestinians in a just-released poll whether they "support or oppose the participation of children (under 18) in the confrontations." Fully 74 percent, to their credit, expressed opposition, but the fact that the question needed to be asked indicates the scope of the problem.
Israel's military retaliations for terror are necessary, but cannot be as effective as an American decision to render Arafat's continuation of violence diplomatically counterproductive.
