    When did we ever see "Peaceniks" March in any Arab Country??" Go into illegally occupied Palestine and you can see them every day. Israelis, Brits, Americans, Italians, Swedes, Australians, French, Germans, Danes, Swiss... just about every nationality except those from Arab countries (who of course are denied entry into Palestine by Israel) "For instance, when was the last time you saw a Jewish child turned out by his or her parents to fight on the frontlines against the Arabs?" Every time a young Israeli is sent by the IOF into Palestine. "Why do the Arabs send children to die as suicide bombers? Why do they send children to throw stones at Israeli police? Why do they encourage the youngest and most innocent to fight their unholy wars?" Very occasionally Palestinians go into Israel and attack civilians. This is despicable. Children who throw stones at tanks do not deserve to be deliberately blinded by IOF bullets. Do you suppose Israeli children might throw stones at Palestinian tanks if they invaded israeli towns and villages? I'll bet they would, and you would call them brave. "Yet, despite these considerations, despite the fact that Israel is a civilized nation defending itself in civilized ways against barbaric attacks by people who have no respect even for the lives of their own children," Israel is NOT a civilized nation. A civilized nation does not invade and occupy and rampage and steal and kill and terrorize people just because they happen to own land coveted by the invader. By the way, what's your real name?

When grandma took up a gun and joined the fight on Israel's northern frontier

In 1969, veterans of the Haganah, Irgun and WWII were asked to help defend the northern communities. The media described a giant success, but archives show they were mostly asked to help with the harvest.

Haitham Saada's schoolmates stream into the banquet hall in the town of Halhul, north of Hebron.

'We're not a nation of terrorists. We're only trying to defend our country'

Friends and family describe Haitham Saada as a smart and gentle boy – and now a martyr, too. What led up to the Palestinian 14-year-old's death by IDF gunfire one Friday afternoon? His loved ones may never find out.
