    Israeli forces raid home to arrest 4-year-old, dad says



    Hilweh Information Center)

    Does the child pictured above look like a danger to you?

    He does to Israeli occupation forces in Jerusalem who woke him up in the middle of the night intending to arrest him, his dad says.

    Milk and diapers

    The Wadi Hilweh Information Center reports today in Arabic:


    Amid their frenzied campaign of arresting children in Jerusalem, Israeli forces raided the home of Zine al-Majid in the Saadia area of the Old City last week in order to arrest his son Muhammad, who is four years old.

    The boy’s father told Wadi Hilweh Information Center:

    “A big force raided our house at dawn on Thursday, and demanded to know the names of my children. So I told them and they said, ‘we have an arrest order for Muhammad.’ I was shocked and asked one of them if he was sure. Muhammad is only four years old! But the officer was not convinced and asked me to wake him up, and after he saw him he backed down from carrying out the arrest.

    The father added: “I told the officer, ‘you want to arrest him; should I send milk and diapers with him?’”

    He said that the officer questioned him about his son and his son’s friends and if he was in the neighborhood, under the pretext that an Israeli settler had been injured. He threatened to summon and interrogate the child if the accusations were established.

    Targeting children

    While Israeli detention of children so young is infrequent, it is not unprecendented.

    Last year, in the village of Kufr Qaddoum Israeli occupation forces attempted to arrest Mo’men Shtayeh who was two-and-a-half years old.

    More often, occupation forces target children who are just a little bit older. A harrowing video of Israeli occupation forces arresting several boys in Hebron earlier this year gave a glimpse into the everyday violence faced by Palestinian children living under Israeli military rule.

    And Muslim Odeh, profiled by The Electronic Intifada last year, had been arrested 10 times and physically abused by Israeli occupation forces.

    His age? Twelve.

    Human rights organizations, including B’Tselem, report that Palestinian children are routinely tortured and habitually threatened with rape by their Israeli captors, among other horrifying abuses.

    Settler invasion

    Odeh, like little Muhammad al-Majid, lives in the eastern occupied Jerusalem neighborhood of Silwan, whose inhabitants are being systematically pushed out by government-backed settlers in order to build more Jewish-only colonies.

    Israeli occupation forces frequently accuse Palestinian children of throwing stones at the settlers or occupation forces.

    In February 2012, occupation forces destroyed a newly completed community center, described as “the only place for children in Silwan.”

    As Israel continues its effort to drive Jerusalemites out of their city, even the children who bear the brunt of its violence are determined to stay.

    Tayma Fteiheh, 13, a Silwan schoolgirl who writes rap songs, described what life was like for children in the area in a recent video from Defense for Children International – Palestine Section (DCI).

    “All the houses here are under threat of demolition [by Israel] so that the settlers can build a park for their children,” Tayma said. “They want to throw Palestinian families on the streets so that they can build parks for their own children.”

    “My dream is like the dream of any Palestinian kid,” she added. “It is to live in safety and not in the shadow of colonization, and not to feel crushed every time I leave the house.”

    For children like four-year-old Muhammad al-Majid, there is no safety even inside their houses, as Israeli occupation forces can invade any time of day or night.

    As of 30 September, 179 Palestinian children were imprisoned and prosecuted in the Israeli military court system, according to DCI.

    HowStuffWorks "Were people vying to become slaves in the Ottoman Empire?" Your title should be renamed to what if turks did this? turkish islamists take this one step further and kidnap non-muslim children and brainwash them to be janissaries. Your source from electronic intifada is inaccurate and full of islamist taqiyya lies. electronic intifada is run by islamists.

    This was one of many crimes perpetrated against Palestinians by the IDF.

    Crimes committed by the Israeli Army and settlers have been documented not only by Electronic Intifada, but also by impartial human rights groups like Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch.

    I spent several weeks in Hebron in 2010. I witnessed Israeli settlers attacking Palestinians and their property, as well as seen IDF soldiers brutally arrest and beat up non-violent demonstrators. A friend and I were attacked by 3 Israeli settlers who used a metal pipe to break my nose and hurt his leg, sending us to the hospital, in which I had surgery to my face.

    In addition to this, I spoke to Palestinians as well as Israelis who lost loved ones to violence. The abuses by the Israeli Army and settlers against Palestinians are very real. I know because I have witnessed them myself.

    Do you think I am an "islamic taqqiyist"?

    Probably for the same reason you don't.

    They condemn all kinds of government violence against innocent people, regardless of who the perpetrators and who the victims are.

    Gee, when I posted stuff from Amnesty International about the Rohingya you completely ignored it.

    Because of all the nonsense posted by both you and Sunrise neither one of you have any credibility. However, what TG123 has posted certainly coincides with my understanding the situation in Palestine.
