Home is where the violence is

The Palestinian Bureau of Central Statistics came out with a bunch of stats, on PalArab children, on the occasion of something called Palestinian Child Day.

Among the notable statistics (such as 52% of the PalArab population is now under 18) came this one:
The indicators showed that the majority of children were exposed to assault mainly at home followed by school and then the streets.
In the topsy-turvy world of Palestan, the most dangerous places for children to be are their own homes. And their schools are safer than "the street."
On the other hand, 52.2% of the households said that they are able to provide security for their children.
Which of course means that 47.8% of the households cannot provide security for their children.

Sounds like we should give these guys a state!
