    The Palestinians are killing their own children, its a technicality that, they are dying from IDF gunfire." Steven, Don't fool yourself. It isn't a technicality so many Palestinian children have been killed. All the human rights group who have observed the IDF practices have reported systematic & deliberate targeting of unarmed Palestinians. Here is what Physicians for Human Rights, USA said in their investigative report from the first Intifada on the high number of Palestinian deaths and injuries: "The pattern of injuries seen in many victims did not reflect IDF (Israeli Defense Forces) use of fire arms in life -threatening situations but rather indicated targeting solely for the purposes of wounding or killing." And this continued as the vital statistics for the end of the 2nd Intifada in 2004 reveal from the Palestinian Board of Health: Of the 3,334 Palestinian deaths--- 82% were civilians. 621 were Palestinian children under the age of 17 years. 411 children were killed by live ammunition, 200 children recieved shot in the head, or face or neck. There were also 10,000 childrens physically in- juries by the IDF, almost 4,000 of them had crippling injuries. Of course, trauma doesn't show have any outward scars and it doessn't show up on x-ray either but I know from Dr. Alice Roth- child's visit to Gaza in 2005 the impact is widespread : "A recent study by the program of 10- to 19-year-olds in Gaza found that two thirds have seen a friend or neighbor killed or wounded, more than one-third have been tear-gassed and 82 percent suffer from moderate to severe PTSD." ( Read her full report at http://www.vopj.org/conflict22.htm ) So the problem has gone on and on and the Israeli Army has done nothing to correct it as the Human Rights Watch Report in '05 notes.

For French teen studying in Israel, it's all about being a Jew among Jews

Arrivals / Departures: Anti-Semitism in France is certainly not the reason why this teen chose to come to Israel; an Israeli whose relatives perished in the Holocaust finds living in Berlin 'perfectly fine.'
