Number of 12 year olds arrested and imprisoned by Israeli forces on sharp incline this year

The Global Movement for the Defense of Children’s Palestine Branch reports that Israeli imprisonment of Palestinian children is up. Over the past two months Israeli forces have increased campaigns against children. At the end of February 2009 the number of Palestinian children detained in Israeli prisons was up to 423. This is the highest number since the beginning of the Al Aqsa Intifada in 2000.

  1. "Detained children are subjected to torture, humiliation and cruel treatment during arrest and interrogation, states Defense of Children. These patterns are being employed to destroy the morale of child Palestinian prisoners and to extract quick confessions to use for convictions in military courts which do not abide guarantees of fair trials." 
    Apparently the Zionists do not believe the general fear of life and limb is enough, they must give them the "personal touch" of imprisonment and torture. The goal probably being to instill that craven fear earlier in the life of the child, so that it sticks with them through adulthood.  This way they can further vilify the children as being "terrorists" in the making...
