25/02/09 Israeli Army Admits to Policy of Killing Children

Israeli Army Says “Ok to Kill 12 Year Olds” admits to war crimes

As we all watched in sheer horror and disbelief at the holocaust visited on Gaza during the months of December 2008 and January 2009, one thing became painfully clear. Israel targets children and they are guilty of War Crimes. In fact, they have already admitted this and I will cover their admission in this blog post. There’s just no getting away from this, the numbers don’t lie, neither did our television screens, or newspapers as we saw the Zionist grim reapers handiwork. Despite Israel’s massive attempts to censor journalists and the media, many brave souls persisted and managed to get the truth out.

Between December 2008 and January 2009, around 400 children were murdered in only two months, and the killing continues every day. Let us be VERY clear, that absolutely NO Israeli children have been killed during the operation “Genocide Cast Lead!”

So, how is it that the Israeli army kills so many innocent children? Are we to believe the “hasbara” they bombard us with and believe that they made over FOUR HUNDRED mistakes in Gaza? Surely the 4th largest army in the world has better aim than that! If not then how can Israel feel safe with such an army of bumbling idiots who can’t shoot straight (laugh out loud)

No, the IDF has a “policy”to kill children, and we will learn all about that today. For surely way back in 2000 there was an insightful interview done with an IDF sharpshooter soldier. He spilled the beans to the world. Sorry, but I had to put in two notes below out of nothing more than outrage. Note that Q=Question and A=Answer, read on.

From Haaratz 2000
Amira Hass
Q=You haven’t shot children.
A=“All the sharpshooters haven’t shot children.”

Q=But nonetheless there are children who were hit, wounded or killed after they were hit in the head. Unless these were mistakes.
A=“If they were children, they were mistakes.”

Q=“You don’t shoot a child who is 12 or younger.”That is, a child of 12 or older is allowed?
A=“Twelve and up is allowed. He’s not a child any more, he’s already after his bar mitzvah. Something like that.” “Twelve and up, you’re allowed to shoot. That’s what they tell us.”

Q=Again: Twelve and up you’re allowed to shoot children.
A=“Because this already doesn’t look to me like a child by definition, even though in the United States a child can be 23.”(NOTE=WARNING HASBARA ALERT!!!!!!!!!!)

Q=Under international law, a child is defined as someone up to the age of 18.
A=“Up until 18 is a child?”(NOTE=Is this soldier stupid or what? Room temperature IQ perhaps? Is this the level of intelligence of an IDF sharpshooter? God help us all!!)

Q=So, according to the IDF, it is 12?
A=“According to what the IDF says to its soldiers. I don’t know if this is what the IDF says to the media.” (NOTE=Ah ha! So this means the IDF lie to the media, we have an admission of lying here!)

Q=I want to persist in the matter of the 12-year-olds. Why was this age set?
A=“I have heard that it was important to the IDF to know whether someone was over 12, so therefore I understood that the age of 12 is a border line. They haven’t told us any age, just that we must not shoot at children. The IDF doesn’t specify ages. (NOTE=so now we have a "no age" policy, any Palestinian of any age is a target!)


Ok did you get that? First, we have to get past the UTTER INSANITY that the IDF tell their soldiers to kill 12 year olds and they only have to “guess” their age!! If you have children in Gaza pray they remain very short, because if they are 8 or 9 years old, and tall for their age, they are targets. And then consider the intelligence of this IDF sharpshooter soldier, I say, shaking my head in disbelief!! To everyone reading this, if you know a 12 year old, or have a 12 year old yourself, would you consider them to be an adult? Are they legitimate targets in war? If the answer is “no” about your own 12 year old, then that has to apply to every 12 year old in the world, including the Muslim ones. Note however, that the worldwide definition of a child is someone under the age of 18 (except in Israel of course, afterall, they never have to comply with the laws of the rest of the world do they!) I wonder if the Israeli army considers their own 12 year old children to be legitimate targets for Hamas? Hmmmmmm??? I think not! Double standards anyone? Smell the “hasbara” in the air? And the rule is, the IDF only have to “agree” among themselves that they “think” a child is 12 years old to shoot them. The cartoon below sums this policy up quite nicely!

Oh, but there is more, I just can’t leave this article without including another intelligent quote from our brave child killing soldier. What does he think about wounding Palestinians as opposed to killing them? You’re gonna love this one!
Q=So why kill, why not just injure?
A=“If you decide to wound people, more people will get hurt, and the question is whether this is better. Wounding fans anger even more.”

Q=Who told you so?
A=“This is my opinion. That is, if you wound someone, even the process of getting hit, when he screams, says that it hurts.”
He just said that if you hit someone with a bullet they will scream and say it "hurts" Oh dear, dear, and this is his logic for not wounding people but rather killing them????? Because if you just outright kill them they don't scream "it hurts?" These people are sick.

Now,getting back to the policy of killing children. Here they outright murder a 13 year old little girl who was scared of them. Excerpts from If Americans Knew:
Israeli officer: I was right
to shoot 13-year-old child

From 2004

An Israeli army officer who repeatedly shot a 13-year-old Palestinian girl in Gaza dismissed a warning from another soldier that she was a child by saying he would have killed her even if she was three years old. (CHILD MURDERING SCUM)

The officer, identified by the army only as Captain R, was charged this week with illegal use of his weapon, conduct unbecoming an officer and other relatively minor infractions after emptying all 10 bullets from his gun’s magazine into Iman al-Hams when she walked into a “security area” on the edge of Rafah refugee camp last month.

A tape recording of radio exchanges between soldiers involved in the incident, played on Israeli television, contradicts the army’s account of the events and appears to show that the captain shot the girl in cold blood

Record of a shooting:

‘It’s a little girl. She’s running defensively eastward’

Operations room
‘Are we talking about a girl under the age of 10?’

‘A girl of about 10, she’s behind the embankment, scared to death’

Captain R (after killing the girl)
‘Anything moving in the zone, even a three-year-old, needs to be killed’

Captain R took the unusual decision to leave the post in pursuit of the girl. He shot her dead and then “confirmed the kill” by emptying his magazine into her body. http://www.ifamericansknew.org/cur_sit/child-killed.html

Nice work Israel!! Proves you are the genocidal maniacs the world now think you are!

More from Haaretz by Gideon Levy, again, there is a pattern here!!
Killing children is no longer a big deal

More than 30 Palestinian children were killed in the first two weeks of Operation Days of Penitence in the Gaza Strip. It’s no wonder that many people term such wholesale killing of children “terror.” According to B’Tselem, the human rights organization, even before the current operation in Gaza, 557 Palestinian minors (below the age of 18) were killed, compared to 110 Israeli minors.

Palestinian human rights groups speak of even higher numbers: 598 Palestinian children killed (up to age 17), according to the Palestinian Human Rights Monitoring Group, and 828 killed (up to age 18) according to the Red Crescent. Take note of the ages, too. According to B’Tselem, whose data are updated until about a month ago, 42 of the children who have been killed were 10; 20 were seven; and eight were two years old when they died. The youngest victims are 13 newborn infants who died at checkpoints during birth.
Israel is creating dead babies and dead children everywhere, they are ruthless killers and show as much remorse as Hitler. Moving on to 2005, report from the UN, do we see a pattern here perhaps, Deja Vu?
Palestinian child deaths in conflict with Israel already nearly double that of 2005

United Nations
October 5, 2006

Ninety-one Palestinian children have already been killed this year in the West Bank and Gaza, almost double the number for the whole of 2005, with youngsters suffering increasing levels of stress from violence and fear in the Israeli-Palestinians conflict, according to the latest United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) update

So, the interview with the IDF soldier proves without a doubt that Israel does target children and is encouraged to do so. This is a war crime. In addition, there is clearly a long standing pattern dating from back in 2000, of Israel not only targeting children, but targeting Palestinians with death instead of wounding. I have wondered if the interview the IDF soldier gave could be used in a court as War Crimes evidence against the army targeting children. As the IDF clearly states, and the sharpshooter clearly stated, anyone aged 12 is a legitimate target, and you only have to guess their age to kill them. However, as the worldwide legal definition of a child is someone under 18 years of age, hence Israel is committing war crimes and this soldier confessed that in his interview. Israel does this with money from American tax payers given over to Israel by the American government. If you are American and don’t want to fund the next round of genocide Israel is planning, then do something about it, do it for yourself, do it for your children, do it for all 12 year olds in the world, and do it for your conscience.
