Only once in a blue moon do I get pushed over the edge enough on some issue to bother doing a diary or make any comments.
Well, this sent me over the edge.
UK ready to take on Israel over fate of children clapped in ironsAnd whoever reads this don't even start with the yada,yada,yada about how other countries are just as bad or the US is just as bad----WE KNOW THAT ALREADY.
Report funded by Foreign Office details claims of routine abuse for Palestinian youths
The POINT IS--- Israel is the one country where the US could shut this kind of abuse of underage children down in heartbeat by simply whispering in the Israeli ear...."Keep it up assholes and kiss your 30 billion US taxpayer dollars and UN vetoes good by".
The Foreign Office revealed last night that it would be challenging the Israelis over their treatment of Palestinian children after a report by a delegation of senior British lawyers revealed unconscionable practices, such as hooding and the use of leg irons..
In the first investigation of its kind, a team of nine senior legal figures examined how Palestinians as young as 12 were treated when arrested. Their shocking report Children in Military Custody details claims that youngsters are dragged from their beds in the middle of the night, have their wrists bound behind their backs, and are blindfolded and made to kneel or lie face down in military vehicles.
Children from the West Bank are held in conditions that could amount to torture, such as solitary confinement, with little or no access to their parents. They can be forced to stay awake before being verbally as well as physically abused and coerced into signing confessions they cannot read.
The team – led by Sir Stephen Sedley, a former Court of Appeal judge – heard that "every Palestinian child is treated like a potential terrorist". In a damning conclusion, the report points out repeated breaches of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, which prohibits cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment
When the Dems get ready to take on US HYPOCRISY AND US drones blowing up children and Israel imprisoning them--let me know.
