Mother arrested, children screaming – just another day in the Palestinian Occupation

1

According to a report aired on Russian TV last month, the Israeli government recently decided to designated roughly 18% of the West Bank as ‘closed military zones’ to be used by the IDF for training and military exercises!  Small family tragedies like this, taking place outside the village of Nabi Saleh, are the inevitable outcome of such decisions.

As a father of four children, I find this report (screened on Palestinian TV) hard to watch. My paternal instincts are inflamed, seeing these  young children man-handled by the heavily-armed IDF soldiers. Of course the soldiers are not ultimately the ones to blame. They are only doing their job in enforcing the Occupation and the theft of this family’s land. The real villains are far removed from the front line, hidden safely in the comfortable corridors of political power.
