The most tragic casualty in a conflict is that of a child, the most disturbing casualty in a conflict is that of a child killed purposely. In Palestine there is a disturbingly tragic high rate of children killed by those sporting the uniform of Israeli armed forces.
In times of conflict the most vulnerable are the most youngest. Today, Palestine is one of the most dangerous places to be a child. Just like what happened in Ireland during the years 1920-1921, all people are considered the enemy, all are considered targets, including those aged 18 and under. Sanity is suspended by those wearing the uniform of an occupying force and ruthless actions such as the killing of children is allowed to take place.
