    The boys family didnt want him due to his mental illness ( an embarresment to the family ) so they decided that he should die a martyr. I can just see the story we would be reading in the newspapers if had all gone as planned ISRAELI SOLDIERS SHOOT A PALESTINIAN BOY. It would have made great propoganda. I remeber watching an article once about Hamas recruiting a 16 year old boy with mental problems .. they gave him 100 shekel spending money ( $20 ) and then gave him a suicide vest told him to blow himself up at a checkpoint. In the end the boy surrendered to the soliders at the checkpoint because he couldnt go through with it. I will always remember seeing his mother and older teenage sister telling the interviewer that they were ashamed of him for not going through with it ( a mother wanted her mentally ill son to blow himself up ). Since the building of the security barrier Hamas use children to test it for weaknesses knowing that if something goes wrong they will not be shot by the soldiers the child will and again next day on the news Israeli soldiers shoot a palestinian child near security fence. Fathers kill their daughters if they believe she has brought dishonour to the family.
