(Jerusalem) – Israeli security forces have used unnecessary force to arrest or detain Palestinian children as young as 11. Security forces have choked children, thrown stun grenades at them, beaten them in custody, threatened and interrogated them without the presence of parents or lawyers, and failed to let their parents know their whereabouts.

Human Rights Watch interviewed four boys, ages 11, 12, and 15, from different neighborhoods of East Jerusalem, and a 14-year-old girl and 15-year-old boy from elsewhere in the West Bank, whom Israeli forces arrested or detained in separate incidents for allegedly throwing rocks from March to December 2014. They and their parents gave accounts of abuses during arrest and interrogation that caused the children pain, fear, and ongoing anxiety. Human Rights Watch has seen photos and marks on the body of one of the children, consistent with the accounts he and his parents had given; the children’s accounts were also consistent with each other.

“Israeli forces’ mistreatment of Palestinian children is at odds with its claim to respect children’s rights,” said Sarah Leah Whitson, Middle East director. “As Israel’s largest military donor, the US should press hard for an end to these abusive practices and for reforms.”

    God’s self-chosenites continue with their relentless Palestinian pursuits starting with children because in their words, they will grow up to be adults protesting the abusive behavior of Israehells totalitarian IDF thugs.

    Hmm, imagine that, objecting to thug rule, the nerve of those kids.

    Meanwhile our taxpayer BILLIONS continue the flow to feed that sadistic machine without condition.

      I take it you’re talking about that old truck you just bought? It all happened so fast. Seems like you just bought it, were working on it and now it’s sold.

      Did you paint it?

      You’re quite the wrencher, Den. I LOVE people who can fix things like you do. Jill’s boyfriend is one of you but he works on houses. Jill always says, he can do anything. That’s the kind of guy everyone needs in their families.

      We could all use a techie, too.

      Same route as yesterday but with no rest stop: 43 minutes so I have been overestimating the rest stop times.

      Smoke clouds smeared all over the far southeast sky. But it seems the wildfire isn’t adding smoke.

    Doc, you sure have stuck with the exercising/walking/sticks thing.

    I can’t imagine getting along w/o a car and making several trips, walking trips, in one day to go to the grocery store. I would for sure buy a bicycle.

    I probably told you I used up this months allotment of gigs for my internet, last week. I probably griped and stormed about it, but guess what? I CAN LIVE WITH THIS!

    At times I’m slowed down to 1.18ish, but mostly I have 5 to 8 mpbs. That’s plenty to do what I do, plus watch a few YouTubes. Guess I’ll keep Exede after the two year contract is up.

    Today was the perfect summer day. Lots of sun, breezy, windows open didn’t need the A/C. Not sure that is helping to make Bob feel any better, the humidity has been hard on him. He doesn’t even want to eat. 😦

    Donald Trump is the biggest fool out there, I swear. What a putz! It’s actually fun seeing what comes out of his mouth next. He’s like some uncivilized cretin. A nutcase, out of control. But he doesn’t care, he just says whatever pops into his mind.

    Off to read the news. Been bush most of the day, breaded and fried a bunch of boneless chicken thighs today. Mmm, mm, good! Mowed the place next door which goes up for auction Thursday. Bidding starts at $8,000 for the two acres and mess of a house and barn. It is nicely mowed for whoever buys it. That is the driveway to the side door of the house, and all my trails and the ditches along the road.
