Let Our Children Live By NURIT PELED-ELHANAN
Bassam Aramin spent nine years in an Israeli prison. He belonged to Yasser Arafat's Al Fatah in the Hebron area and attempted to throw a grenade at an Israeli army Jeep in occupied Hebron. Last Wednesday morning, an Israeli soldier in a jeep in his village of Anata, on the West Bank, shot his nine year old daughter, Abir, in the head. The soldier will not spend an hour in jail. In Israel, soldiers are not imprisoned for killing Arabs. Never. It does not matter whether the Arabs are young or old, real or potential terrorists, peaceful demonstrators or stone throwers. The army has not conducted an inquiry in Abir Aramin's death. Neither the police nor the courts have questioned anyone. There will be no investigation. As far as the Israeli Defense Forces are concerned, the shooting did not happen. The army's official account of her death is that she was hit by a stone that one of her classmates was throwing "at our forces."
A bullet penetrated Abir Aramin's skull, while she was walking to school with her sister. I saw her just afterwards at Hadassah Hospital, where she slept quietly in a huge hospital bed. Abir's face was white. Her huge eyes were closed. By then, she was already brain dead, and the doctors decided to allow the rest of her to die. I saw clearly that her head had been shot from behind, and I will testify under oath to that fact. A young student who witnessed her shooting told journalists that the Israeli border police, who are part of the IDF, drove up to the girls as they came out of their school examinations. "The girls were afraid and started running away. The border police followed them in the direction in which they were retreating. Abir was afraid and stool against one of the shops at the side of the road. I was standing near her. The border policeman shot through a special hole in the window of his jeep that was standing very close to us. Abir fell to the ground I saw that she was bleeding from the head."
"The army's official account of her death is that she was hit by a stone that one of her classmates was throwing "at our forces."
What a crock. How many people, let alone kids, can throw a stone that has the velocity of a Israeli fired 9 mm bullet?
Another Palestinian child shot in the head by the IOF. IOF snipers are trained to use the "kill shot." That's when the sniper aims for the head.
To the IOF, it doesn't matter if that head belongs to a nine year old child. The IOF will cover up their war crime(s) by issuing self-serving statements, like the one above, that completely absolves the original murderer and places the blame on the victim.
A person that deliberately aims for and shoots a kid in the head is not a human being, but some type of deranged organism that can only exist feeding on the death, destruction and misery it inflicts upon actual human beings. Like the death and destruction that is being visited upon the indigenous Palestinians on a daily basis.
The ZIONAZI's of Israel. The 21st Century's version of their heroes, the Nazi's of the 20th Century. Yes, Hitler must be proud of his bastard creation.
