The "US Campaign to End the Occupation" started something new:

Tell Congress to Support Palestinian Children's Rights!

Wednesday, May 11, 2016
Israel had held an average of 201 Palestinian children in custody each month since 2011. By the end of February 2016, there were 440 Palestinian children in the Israeli prison system, which means that the number of Palestinian child detainees have skyrocketed. This is a dire situation.
There is an urgent need for bold US leadership on this issue and we now have a rare chance to support an initiative to make this happen. Representative Betty McCollum (MN-04) has initiated a letter to President Obama urging him to appoint a Special Envoy for Palestinian Children.
Urge your Representative to sign on to this letter asking for a Special Envoy for Palestinian Children today!

The number of child detainees has indeed skyrocketed. From 178 in August to at least 438 in February. 

Could it be because so many decided that they want to stab Jews to death in that timeframe?

No, that is not to be mentioned.

But Betty McCollum's letter does mention it in passing, if only to find a few more like-minded members of Congress who do not want to betray themselves as being so obviously anti-Israel. It is highly disingenuous, giving lip service to the idea that children are being recruited by terror groups but not saying that they should be protected from that. Not a single word about incitement. She mentions the 12-year old girl who was detained without mentioning that she intended to stab Jews.

The sole purpose of the suggested "Special Envoy to Palestinian Children" isn't to help children but to demonize Israel; if McCollum cared about children then she would try to protect them from the child abuse that causes them to consider stabbers to be heroes.

The "Campaign to End the Occupation" doesn't even pretend. It simply wants to find any means it can to pressure Israel, and Palestinian children are perfect pawns for that purpose.

Luckily, the vast majority of Congress knows that this is a scam. The "Campaign" says that last year McCollum got 18 representatives to sign on to that anti-Israel letter - which is about 4% of the members of Congress.

Palestinian children indeed deserve to be protected - protected from a sick society that encourages them to kill themselves in the attempt to hurt Jews.

We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.
