“Far too many children languish in jail, mental health facilities or through other forms of detention. Some children are vulnerable because they are migrants, asylum seekers, homeless or preyed on by organized criminals. Whatever the circumstances, the Convention dictates that the deprivation of liberty must be a measure of last resort, and for the shortest time … With that in mind, and further to a request by the General Assembly, the United Nations is preparing a Global Study that aims to shine a light on the scale and conditions of children deprived of their liberty and secure the protection of their rights.”
As usual, Palestinians and their fans want to hijack every issue for their own purposes.
UNRWA's Chris Gunness tweeted:
#UNSG "commitments by #UN 2 children must b extended 2 kids overlooked & deprived of liberty". What about #GazaKids? pic.twitter.com/SFiyygEW15— Chris Gunness (@ChrisGunness) November 26, 2015
So since Gunness wants to show the world photos of kids in Gaza, I'm happy to help..
Here are some Gaza kids who only yesterday were deprived of their liberty to eat less expensive ice cream:
Here are some deprived Gaza teens begging for food at the Cordoba Restaurant and Students' Center:
Kids forced to wear the garments of their colonial Ottoman oppressors at the Izmir Restaurant:
Horror at the Crazy Water Park:
Look at how miserable this child is in this squalid Gaza ice cream shop!
When the UN tries to do something good for children who are in desperate circumstances, UNRWA can be counted upon to dilute the message so that they can maintain their fiction that Palestinian kids have it worse. They want to make sure that they get far more than their share of international funds that are meant to help the kids in the rest of the world who really need it.
