Most children under 10 years of age are told not to handle knives, but two Palestinian children were apprehended not only carrying the weapons, but intending to use them. “During initial questioning, the children admitted to being sent to carry out a terror attack,” the IDF Spokesperson said on Twitter.
IDF spokesman Lt. Col. Peter Lerner confirmed the two children were just eight-years-old and said they were on their way to the Jewish community of Migdal Oz south of Bethlehem. Disturbingly, this isn’t the first time that underage Palestinians have been caught attempting terror attacks, thanks to a culture that praises terrorists and promotes violent acts as heroic.
Palestinian children aren’t the only ones prepared for violence in the realm of Islamic terrorism. An Arab couple from Israel arrested for joining ISIS reported that children as young as eight-years-old were given military training.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, in his speech at the United Nations General Assembly in September noted that hundreds of thousands of Palestinian children are “indoctrinated with hate every moment, every hour.”
Commented the Israeli leader, “This is child abuse.”
