    "Dozens of girls from the local religious school spread out across the road leading up to Revava, while another 200 youth stood at the gates to Ma'aleh Levona, where they had piled rocks as a blockade." Are Isreali Settlers using children as human shields. Or is that just a tactic others use, and the Israelis have a nicer name for it for when they do it. Not to worry though, the IDF has proven time and time again that they will not fall for these tactics, they will attack, kill and justify later. I think the Palestinians are holding out for an Israeli civil war.
