Abandon All Fear

What nobody else seems to be saying…

[Child Soldiers] Following the Israel-Lebanon Crisis

Posted by Lex Fear on July 28, 2006

I’ll start by saying that I am not anti-Israel and I believe it has a right to exist as a nation, as every other nation does. It also has a right to defend itself. However, what Israel is doing is not defending itself, instead, it is conducting it’s own state sanctioned terrorism against a weak fledgling state.

If you want to read some intelligent and alternative commentary on the Israel-Lebanon crisis, then check out The Osterley Times. Kel manages to pull in and analyse a lot of news reporting on the situation.

“When this senseless fighting is over, when we finally know the cost of this war in terms of loss of infrastructure and loss of human life, we will be justified in asking what was it all for when the Israelis accept a deal that was always on the table before she unleashed carnage in the Middle East.” Kel – The Osterley Times

I found this post particularly disturbing. The creeping smile on the little girls face in the second image is haunting. Still, Israel is not the first nation to employ this tactic against the enemy. Terror groups in Afghanistan, The Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam in Sri Lanka, The Democratic Republic of Congo and the Lords Resistance Army in Uganda have all used brainwashing on children to fuel their conflicts.

“Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.” – Proverbs 22:6 NIV
