Two eight-year-old Palestinian children were sent on a near-certain suicide mission when they were given knives and instructed to find a Jew to attack. Luckily, Israeli security forces stopped them in time.

IDF soldiers detained two Palestinian children who were on their way to commit a terror attack Wednesday night in Gush Etzion. Israeli forces were alerted after two suspicious individuals approaching the community of Migdal Oz were observed on surveillance cameras.

The IDF forces engaged them near the community’s fence and were surprised to discover that the two were knife-wielding eight-year-old Palestinian children. The children said that they had been sent to commit an attack. One can only assume that the two may have been killed while doing so.

Fruits of a Poisonous Education System

The actions of these two children are the direct result of the Palestinian educational system, which teaches the Palestinian students to hate Israel and Israelis and promotes acts of terrorism and violence.

Rather than promoting peace, the Palestinian educational system continues to glorify terrorists and promote martyrdom. The children are brainwashed by the Palestinian media and educational system, which promotes a culture of death and devastation that is driving an entire generation of Palestinians toward self-destruction.

Using all means, including sports events, summer camps and school plays, the Palestinian children are taught that they are to aspire to become a terrorist and die while killing and maiming Israelis.

Hillary Clinton, while serving as a senator in 2007, said of the schoolbooks used in the Palestinian Authority, that the Palestinian education system “profoundly poisons the minds of these children,” adding that some of the videos glorifying so-called martyrs were tantamount to “child abuse.”
