Simple advice for how to deal with a Palestinian child:
I’d break every one of his bones
More violence is needed. Where are the clubs to break their legs?
Put him on his knees and shoot a bullet into his mouth.

Israeli corporal Ari Ben Reuven says: “break every bone” of crying Palestinian boy seized on way to school

by Ali Abunimah

The Electronic Intifada has captured even more horrifyingly racist and violent statements by Israeli soldiers on Facebook targeting Palestinian children as part of our effort to document this widespread phenomenon.

On the day US President Barack Obama arrived for his Israel visit last week, Israeli occupation forces in Hebron violently seized and detained dozens of Palestinian children, some aged as young as eight, on their way to school.

The harrowing video, above, of the Israeli army attack on the children went viral on YouTube.

B’Tselem, the Israeli organization that documents and criticizes some of Israel’s human rights abuses and which posted the video, condemned the mass arrest of the children as “unlawful” and said that some of the children had been taken to interrogation centers wheresevere and systematic abuses, including holding children in solitary confinement and harsh interrogation without parents or lawyers present is the norm.

In previous cases, Palestinian children have testified that under such conditions they have been forced to confess by Israeli interrogators to false charges of throwing rocks or molotov cocktails and pressed to inform on friends and family.

“A bullet in his mouth”

Givati Brigade’s Yoni Gordon thinks Palestinian child should be put on his knees and shot in the mouth (Source).

When the video of the children’s arrest was posted on the popular Israeli Facebook page “We are all in favor of death to terrorists,” a hotbed of racist incitement, it provided an opportunity for dozens of Israelis, once again, to express horrifyingly violent views (Screenshot of all the comments in context).

Some of those posting comments were Israeli soldiers. Here are a few that indicate the mindset of these soldiers:

Kfir Brigade’s Oren Degani, seen with a child, thinks Palestinian children are “little shits” (Source).

Oren Degani whose Facebook profile contains information suggesting he is a member of the “Black Scorpions” unit of the Israeli army’s Kfir Brigade, clearly believes the Palestinian children deserve such treatment and that they are all presumed guilty. He wrote under the video:

They pretend to be innocent saints who did nothing. I know this from my reserve duty. They throw a firebomb and when you catch them they cry and swear on Muhammad that they didn’t do anything … little shits.

Corporal Ari Ben Reuven’s profile image includes the motto “The road to peace is paved with telescopic gunsights” and “Let the army mow [them] down! (Source).

Ari Ben Reuven, whose Facebook profile indicates he is a corporal in the Israeli army was even more blunt:

I’d break every one of his bones

Ron Shwartz had a similar reaction and observed:

More violence is needed. Where are the clubs to break their legs?

Yoni Gordon, a member of the Givati Brigade had simple advice for how to deal with a Palestinian child:

Put him on his knees and shoot a bullet into his mouth.


Avisaf Hillel (center) misses his army days of abusing Palestinian children (Source).

Avisaf Hillel, whose Facebook profile says he attends “Ariel University,” a settler institution in the occupied West Bank, and is a die-hard supporter of Israel’s Beitar Jerusalemfootball club whose fans are notorious for their racist mob rampages, looked back fondly and with a touch of sarcasm on his time in the army when he was mistreating Palestinian children:

How I miss those days!!! But during my time in regular military service, they couldn’t get a peep out of their mouth!! We took care of them real well!!

Jewish Agency’s social media propagandist Avi Mayer also defends child abuse

Another of those defending and justifying the soldiers’ brutality seen in the video was the Jewish Agency’s social media propandist Avi Mayer – himself an American volunteer in the Israeli army.

In a series of tweets, Mayer, a former Israeli army spokesman, suggested that accusations leveled against the children by the Israeli occupation army should be taken as incontrovertible truth that the children were criminals who deserved such shocking treatment and that Palestinian children should be viewed as guilty until proven innocent of whatever the Israeli army accuses them.

Not surprisingly, Mayer has absolutely refused to criticize the Israeli army’s routine, documented abuses of children or the horrifying statements of his comrades in arms.

    So the Taludic sick f… is displaying their inherent Maath, if anyone of you can follow that.

    Its the powerbase they destort the humans that eventually fills the gap and is also the fundament of this bahaviour, despecable for any sane human, but for the Tamudic f…. is a desplay of force against the unvurthy Goym.
    This is also the bassis in the Zionist “cabbalic” drivel, like the NWO,s belife in their pwn superiorety, simply by the “fact” they are conected to the Maath.

    The Talmud is based on superiorety/eugenics, basicly, and is in its fundament, no life bringer, only death.
    If not the real Israelis takes a stand against this religious and utterly insane belife, it will backfire, and that day, will come belive, it will.
    The fact, and I know this, is the lie the Talmud is based on, the Maath.

    What people dont understands, it works, thats why they are in porn, entertainment in general, sience and education, all to diminich the humans their own consciousness and to impose a reality, that is theirs, not any sane humans.

    As long as we play along, doom will come.

    I am going to tell you a sacret, you and I, all of us, when we take our transgresion, we all face judgment, I dont consider my self as a religious/ateistic begin, I focus on consciousness.
    This Maath will be your own downfall, evil is necesery for the survival of boiligical entetys, thats the mark of the beast, not to belive beatses/animals are evil, they are Not, they follow the Law.
    What Maath does is draging negative energy, form humanity at large to a litle click of people, living on it.
    The rest(taludic followers) is meer sheeps(an aplology sheeps, is just an analogy), and have no knowledge of the Maath, and belive this powerdrivel and the “safeness” in it is utter bullshitt.

    The evil, will never sustain, simply because its not sustaiable, and therfore not natural, where cooperation and collective consciousness is blooming.
    Its the price we all will pay, before we learn the truth, that worries me.

    Its pitty to behold, I feel sorrow on behalf of them all, the victim and the perpetrator, the only “posetive” is where they go for their jurney, after this short peroid of time as a human begin, in paradise.

    Paraphrasing Shakespeare:-
    Hath not a Palestinian eyes? Hath not a Palestinian hands, organs,
    dimensions, senses, affections, passions; fed with
    the same food, hurt with the same weapons, subject
    to the same diseases, heal’d by the same means,
    warm’d and cool’d by the same winter and summer
    as an Israeli is? If you prick us, do we not bleed?
    If you tickle us, do we not laugh? If you poison us,
    do we not die? And if you wrong us, shall we not revenge?
