Pallywood propaganda at its worst.
Palestinian-Arab children are indoctrinated by their society to deliberately put themselves in harm’s way by provoking Israeli soldiers with insults, verbal abuse and physical attacks, hoping the soldiers will lose their cool and respond. Luckily the Israeli soldiers seem to regard this sort of idiocy as some kind of rank amateur reality-TV show and laugh it off, treating it with the contempt it deserves. But there’s always the danger that this kind of provocation may just succeed and that’s when the effort pays huge media dividends.
That is why these children are never sent out alone, but always with pro-Palestinian press photographers and also civilians equipped specifically for this purpose with cameras, ready to document these highly scripted, carefully choreographed and preplanned staged scenes.
In addition there is another dimension that is almost too grotesque to mention: the children, often young western-looking Arab girls, are selected and sent out into these confrontations without their parents – but with their parents’ active support, coaching and approval. What kind of parents in a civilised society deliberately abuse their children in this way? This is child abuse of the worst sort and the parents should be dragged into court.
Instead they are heaped with praise and their children get to meet the top political leaders!
