UNHRC should condemn the PA and Hamas for abuse of Palestinian children
March 18, 2019
On Monday the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) will meet in order to go through its regular routine of criticizing Israel.
For 25 years the PA has been teaching Palestinian children and youth that terrorist murderers are heroes; that Jews are "the most evil among creations," and Israel is "the enemy"; and that Israel has no right to exist.
These intertwined messages have been used by the PA as a means to mobilize and recruit Palestinian children and youth to take an active part in acts of terrorism against Israelis.
While the PA rightly criticizes Hamas when it uses these same messages to children to fuel the weekly violent confrontations on the Gaza border, the PA is itself guilty of the same crimes against Palestinian children.
