Palestinian children taunt Israeli soldiers

There can be no keener revelation of a society's soul than the way in which it treats its children

Nelson Mandela

In this youtube,  shot at a protest rally  in the village of Nabi Salih,  Palestinian mothers literally push their children into Israeli soldiers, hoping for a photo-op.   Its scary on many levels.  Its disheartening to see children used by their parents in such a cynical and manipulative way.  Its sad to see  young children taught to hate. My heart goes out to the Israelis who so patiently  put up with this behavior.

Incidentally, various anti-Israel websites and facebook pages have taken freeze frames of this to show how "brave" their  children are.   Perhaps they didn't realize the entire clip would be released

From the Algemeiner:

“A video shot at a Friday protest in the village of Nabi Salih, in the central West Bank, captured a striking image: that of a young Palestinian girl [A'hd Tamimi] attempting to provoke Israeli soldiers. Soon thereafter the girl is joined by many other seemingly young-looking people from the village.
A senior IDF source told Ynet that intelligence indicates that pro-Palestinian activists pay Palestinian children from Nabi Salih and other nearby villages to confront the soldiers. “The soldiers are briefed on the fact that these protests are staged for the sake of provocation, so that they could be filmed acting violently and so that those videos could be distributed worldwide in an effort to harm the IDF’s image,” the officer said.
According to Ynet, Abir Kubati, spokesperson of the popular protest coordination committee, said: “I don’t understand what the army wants – they send soldiers into a Palestinian village and then dare to depict themselves as victims because the residents don’t welcome them.”
“You’re a traitor! I know you speak Arabic. Our soldiers are stronger than you! I’ll smash your head,” the 10-year-old girl is heard in the video screaming at the soldier in Arabic, according to a translation provided by Ynet.”
