Israeli Army Shoot 12 Year Old Child

Today the Israeli Army Child Killing Unit shot another child. But no need to worry, decent people of the world, after all they are “allowed” to shoot 12 year old children. Why? Because, according to Israel, you are no longer a child when you turn 12 years old. Never mind that the world definition of legal adult age is 18 years old, like everything else, Israel makes it’s own rules to suit it’s purpose of ethnic cleansing as was so graphically depicted in the T-Shirts the IDF soldiers gleefully wore with pregnant women and with children on them as targets. Israel has a long standing Army policy of shooting children since as far back as the year 2000, as I will point out after today's shooting report below:
Israeli forces apprehended a young Palestinian after injuring him east of Beit Hanoun in the northern Gaza Strip.

Local sources said Israeli troops seized 12-year-old Ayman Shamiyya after shooting him while he was playing. There was no word about how serious the boy's injuries were. source
So let's now take a look at an interview that was given by an IDF sharpshooter in his own words no less. The important thing to notice here (aside from the FACT that they shoot 12 year olds!!!) is that this interview was done, not now, but in 2000,(thanks Owl for pointing the date out) a whopping NINE years ago. Which, points out that this "policy" of murdering Palestinian children is just "part and parcel" of everyday life in the Israeli military.
Don't shoot till you can see they're over the age of 12
He doesn't know how many children have been killed in the violence of the past two months, but he's sure that the army 'shoots everyone who needs to be shot.' A day in the life of an IDF sharpshooter.

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:Do they talk about this?

A:"They talk to us about this a lot. They forbid us to shoot at children."

Q:How do they say this?

A:"You don't shoot a child who is 12 or younger."

Q: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."

Thirteen is bar mitzvah age.

"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."

Q:Under international law, a child is defined as someone up to the age of 18.

A:"Up until 18 is a child?"

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."

Q:And children are from 12 down. Is there no order that between 12 and 18 you shoot at the legs and not the head?

A:"Of course we try to see to it that he really is over 20."

Q:In the 10 seconds that you have.

A:"In the 10 seconds that I have, I have to estimate how old he is."

Q:And in what direction the wind is blowing, and the deviation here and there, and which way he'll jump the next moment.

A:"Yes, but there are hardly any mistakes by sharpshooters. The mistakes are made by people who aren't sharpshooters."

Q:And it turns out that they happen to hit the children's heads, and all this is just by chance?

A:"If you say you have seen children that have been hit in the head a lot, then it is sharpshooters."

Q:So what you're saying is that our definition of children is different.

A:"Your definition is different."

Q:Because for you it's someone who is 12.

A:"Yes."

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. We take care not to kill, not to have incidents with many dead. Six dead is normal, there could have been a lot more." link
And, just to hammer home this "policy" of murdering children, yet another interview with another "Israeli Child Killer" soldier who is quite proud of his killing of a beautiful little girl called Iman, who did nothing wrong, except have the misfortune to be born Palestinian and live next to a genocidal rogue state called Israel. Again, this is a report from 2004, so this "policy" is nothing new for Israel as they have been killing children for almost TEN years, since 2000.
Israeli officer: I was right
to shoot 13-year-old child


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.

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:

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

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

WatchtowerA 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.link
So what we can see from this child killer report above, are two things, firstly, the "watchtower" asks if the girl is over 10 years old, this seems to be in breach of their insane and illegal policy of killing 12 year olds, as they now seem to reduce the age to 10 years old, so which is it Israel? 12 year olds, 10 year olds, or just all Palestinian children that are alive and breathing? Secondly, this "murdering scum soldier" believes in shooting even a 3 year old child as he stated. Makes you wonder how many more are just like this killer, given what we have seen in Gaza recently. And lastly, see what the United Nations had to say about the Israeli Child Murderers three years ago in 2006:
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 source
So, I think it is clear to say that there has been, and continues to be, an open policy to murder Palestinian children by the Israeli Army. Given that Israel would be well aware of these many incidents and numbers from the last NINE years. And yet, they have done nothing to stop murdering children in all these years. Indeed, after their genocide in Gaza their "soldiers" had T-Shirts printed to celebrate killing pregnant Palestinian women and children.

PHOTOS OF IMAN BEFORE AND AFTER HER ENCOUNTER WITH ISRAELI CHILD KILLING SOLDIERS:
PLEASE REMEMBER ALL THE HUNDREDS OF INNOCENT CHILDREN MURDERED BY ISRAEL.
Americans need to stop funding the killing of children, stop sending Israel BILLIONS of your tax payer dollars when Americans are loosing jobs and their homes.

jesus christ, that interview is surreal. I wanted to ask you though about the dates. you say the interview was taken in 2004, haaretz dates it to 2000. Just checking in on that because i want to spread that interview around and I want to give the right info. I assume the 2000 date is the correct one? Or is there a reason for 2004?

Hi there:) I thought the articles were in 2004, but double check me, one of them is anyway. Also, I wrote about this ages ago here about the children:

My son is tall for his age, He looks like he is 10, but he is not. In two years I expect him to be the height of the average 12 year old.
IF we were living in Palestine, (and I am glad we dont) would the IDF bother to ask my son how old he was? NO they would just look at his height, assume he was 12 and then kill him. In two years time, he will be ONLY 9 years old.

Ban Sidhe said...

What army in their right mind could willfully kill a child of 12 years old.........Only the Israeli army, the 4th largest army in the world, with tanks, F-16's and drones to protect its so called "soldiers", yet it shoots children.

Every mother in the world should look at their child and ask that same question.

What a f*$ked up army, and "country". My tax dollars goes for this?

Why will no country on earth take action against these common criminals , other than to pay lip service? They are liars , thieves , traitors , murderers , and the scourge of the earth. They have no morals , and hide behind their religion , meanwhile being raised and taught to hate anyone that is not the same.

Where does it end?

The Baby-Killing Israeli regime is just a terrorist organization by another name. And don't forget their American puppet masters/co-conspirators in war crime and genocide.

Never purchase anything made in Israel or the USA. Those who do are just supporting The Beast.

Economic warfare is non-violent and it has already brought the American beast to it's knees.

The US dollar is now an international joke.

Bin Laden was 100% right. He said America going into the middle east would cause America to financially collapse.

I don't understand what the jews are trying to say here? Regardless if they are 10, 12, 13 or 18, these people- children or adults- are civilians. What is their justification for killing them? Are they openly admitting to genocide?

the sooner the criminal israeli elements within the US administration are removed the better, the behaviour of the criminal liebermann is facilitated by those who have the goods on american congressmen/women. mossad spend all day looking for chinks in the character of people and blackmail them into supporting the criminal behaviour of the israeli regime. israel is on the route of all genocidal fascist regimes of the past - ultimate self-destruction. Real Jews do not support israeli policies. Why has such a small country have so much leverage to kill and maim children? how is opinion in the US controlled by mass media? the crimes of 60 years ago do not justify the sickening crimes carried out in the name of Jews today. Israel is a sick and psycotic society, the war in iraq was instigated by israel, 1000's of young americans killed for a tiny powerful criminal state - israel, the oil and halibuton contracts where a by-product to keep corrupt americans sweet. Long live the Palestinan People - You are not alone. c. Ireland

Jewish people always put themselves besides propaganda like the overturning of the conviction of Reuben "Hurricane" Carter so they can kill children for whatever purposes they see fit, whether its a bunch carrying out the Talmud at Columbine or just to drive out more Palestinian families. That's how their reptile brains work.

It truly is bewildering that no nation will relieve this travesty. Yet wherever we look, among the western countries we find that the zionists are so well entrenched that they are dictating policy across the board. The only country in a position to alleviate this seems in my opinion, to be the Soviet Union. What a strange turn of events. Yet, their intervention would more than likely draw the U.S. and it's allies into a global conflict that probably would go atomic. And that ,my friend, is the stalemate scenario that we are faced with. Meanwhile the zionist agenda for world hegonamy continues unchallenged. Unless an altercation between Iran and Israel leads to the U>S>S>R> entering as Iran's ally, and being victorious, we can expect more of the same and worse for many years to come.

I can only speak for this blog, but the writers here are not against all Jews. As a matter of fact, if you look at my sidebar links you will see very many Jewish owned and Jewish run blogs who are against the actions of Israel and Zionists. I support and commend those brave wonderful Jewish people who show the real humanity and compassion the Jewish people can have once they are de-programmed from the Zionist fanatics who are the majority in Israel and America.

In so far as the criticism of Israel, we wish that Israel would stop murdering people and breaking international laws for the last 60 years. In their recent genocide in Gaza they murdered hundreds of innocent people; many of them were women and children. I notice you do not mention that sad fact.

Israel has brought this wrath on themselves by their own actions. People are angry and have had enough now and the age old charges of "anti-semitism" don't scare people anymore. If and when, Israel chooses, or is forced by America, stop attacking its neighbours and to live in peace, to stop stealing land and return what they have stolen, allow for the creation of a Palestinian state, free from siege and attack, then there will be no need for all us "people" to criticize them.

I look forward to that day.

Pertaining to your last entry: My question is this. The Jewish religions holy book called the Babylonian Talmud teaches that the Jew takes care of the Jew, Period. All other forms of life on the planet are considered goyim. To be abused in any manner that they see fit. If the Jewish people as a whole cannot acknowledge this hate and remove it from their religion, there will never be peace. The only people in the world that can change this tragic course are the Jewish people. The seeds of anti-semitism lie in their own religion. They need to accept the rest of the World, not deceive it, or they will surely perish with it. What do you think?
