UNICEF: Where are you?|
UNICEF has called on
Israel and the Palestinian Authority/Palestine Liberation
Organization (PA/PLO) to do more to shield kids from violence.
According to the United Nations organization, Israel should uphold
international standards on the detention of children and ease travel
restrictions that prevent thousands of Arab “Palestinian” youths
from getting an education, the head of the United Nations children's
fund said at the start of a Middle East visit.
Yes. Israel should uphold the rights of terrorists to brainwash Arab
Children to blow up Jewish Children. Israel should not be allowed to
protect itself from daily imminent danger from those who wish to
commit ethnic cleansing and genocide. What about Arafat from
preventing his own people from getting a proper education.
One that eliminates hatred, incitement, terrorism, and violence.
One that teaches tolerance not terrorism.
One that teaches reading, writing, and arithmetic rather than
bomb-making, smuggling and more importantly murder and mayhem.
Perhaps even a lesson that G-d does grant martyrdom for murder of
civilians and rewards of virgins in paradise for dirty deeds in the
blasphemous using of G-d’s name in vain.
Human rights groups such as Amnesty International and Human Rights
Watch have raised concerns about the treatment of several hundred
Arab “Palestinian” teens held in Israeli detention centers and
prisons, and UNICEF has called for the abolition of "administrative
detention" - without charge or trial - for minors.
Even if the teens are unfortunately brainwashed children by their
rulers they must still be held accountable for their actions. The
same human rights groups do not condemn the school textbooks that
teach terrorism rather than tolerance. These groups fail to condemn
the crimes against humanity and ethnic cleansing and genocide of
Jews by Arafat’s Palestinian Authority/Palestine Liberation
Organization, it’s main faction Fatah and its various subsidiary
terrorist organizations (called “security forces”) such as the Al
Aqsa Martyrs Brigade, Force 17 and Tanzim as well as the sister
organizations Hamas, Hezbollah and Islamic Jihad.
UNICEF executive director Carol Bellamy called on Israeli
authorities "to comply with the international norms that are in
place for purposes of detention of young people."
"While security is an issue, let's make sure you carry out security
in a way that is not so devastating on people, that it doesn't
prevent children from getting an education," she added.
Agreed. No one should be denied a proper education. Bellamy must
protect the Arab and Jewish children from their corrupt dictator and
repressive ruler Yasser Arafat if she truly cares about the children
of the region. Surely, she is no authority on security concerns but
let her use her authority regarding children in a completely
accountable honest way.
While we are on the subject of education...what about the children
murdered and maimed on buses, in cafes, in discos, in restaurants,
in shopping malls and in the university as well as those in their
beds or playing nearby their homes. What about their denial of an
education as well as the existence of their very lives. Bellamy does
not seem to care or recognize those children
Bellamy is on a three-day visit to Israel and the disputed
territories of Gaza, Judea & Samaria, her first since being named
UNICEF chief in 1995. Several planned visits have been scrapped for
UNICEF says at least 573 Arab “Palestinians” under 18 and 104
children on the Israeli side have been killed in violence that
erupted in Sept. 2000. It has repeatedly called on both sides to do
more to protect children from violence. Although it is nice to
report statistics it would be also nice if the truth were told
completely as to the causes for each of the deaths of these
Decisions of adults in the region are "creating an environment for
violence that will affect the children for years to come," Bellamy
The decision of Arafat to turn his back and walk away from an
unprecedented offer for peace, security, and statehood for his own
ego, personal benefit, and symbolism was the one conflict-ending
decision that was fatal to both his own people as well as the
Corruption and greed to steal billions of international
“humanitarian aid” money to his own personal pocket were more
important than the proper education of the children. Using them as a
diversion is definitely a crime against humanity. One that should be
referred to the U.N. Security Council for a resolution or tried
before the International Court of Justice, The Hague, Netherlands.
While Israeli and Arab ‘Palestinian’ children are both affected by
violence, "there is a special impact ... on some of the Palestinian
children - the struggles to get to school, the barriers, the
diversions, the checkpoints, the impact we've seen in terms of
getting some of the vaccines in for children for simple
immunization," Bellamy said.
Bellamy. Don’t blame Israel. Give credit to Arafat.
Bellamy plans to visit UNICEF education projects in the Gaza Strip,
view Israel's security fence and separation barrier near Jerusalem,
in Judea & Samaria, and meet Israeli and Arab “Palestinian”
schoolchildren who have lost relatives in the violence.
She is also due to meet senior officials, including Arab
“Palestinian” premier Ahmed Qureia and Israel's deputy prime
minister, Ehud Olmert.
The UN said Bellamy would raise "access problems" with Israeli
officials, including checkpoints, curfews and other obstacles to
Palestinian movement and barriers to UNICEF staff reaching the
Bellamy. Urge Arafat to stop terrorism immediately. You will see the
checkpoints, curfews and other obstacles made necessary by terrorism
come to an end.
Arab “Palestinian” officials will be urged to put more resources
into education and child protection. One great start would be not to
use the children as human sacrifices and weapons or for propaganda
and publicity campaigns to falsely gain world sympathy. Another
might possibly be not to use children as human shields for
"The majority of the population in this region is young," Bellamy
said. "We have the choice to invest in young people or to ignore
young people. So my message will be to all, to Israelis and
Maybe UNICEF will act in the right direction by education of the
Arab “Palestinian” children towards shielding them from terrorism
and violence. The sooner the better.
Invest in the children. Invest in school textbooks that do not
perpetuate hatred, incitement, terrorism and violence against Arab
and Jewish children.
Do it for the sake of the children.
