One of the great horrors of the Israeli occupation of Palestine is the brutal treatment of children by the Israeli military. Today we get a vivid look at the abuse of Palestinian children by the Israeli military through the eyes of Ivan Karakashian, who represents Defense for Children International Palestine (DCIP). DCIP defends, or attempts to defend, children caught up in the Israeli military courts.
These are Palestinian children. Israeli children when arrested are processed in the Israeli civil court process…NEVER in military courts. Just the opposite is true of Palestinian children, who are ONLY processed in the military courts, and what a difference! Karakashian spells out some of the horrifying details.
Thanks to Steve Low and the GRALTA foundation for shepherding a Boston-area group to Israel/Palestine and recording Karakashian's presentation to the group.
