Radical US Politicians Oppose Israel Arresting Teen Terrorists
The real abuse that American politicians should investigate is the Palestinian Authority’s constant incitement of minors to murder Jews, not Israel’s attempts to prevent such exploitation.
Nine members of Congress have introduced a bill to prevent US aid to Israel from being used to arrest Palestinian terrorists who are under the age of 18.
The bill, sponsored by Rep. Betty McCollum (D-Minn.), characterizes young terrorists merely as “Palestinian children” and contends that their arrest by the Israeli army constitutes “abuse.”
It’s worth recalling a few examples of the behavior for which Palestinian “children” have been detained by the Israeli military in recent years.
