The Palestinians promote terrorism committed by children, a clear-cut case of child abuse.

Fatah, led by Palestinian Authority (PA) head Mahmoud Abbas, earlier this month posted on its Twitter account a photo of a young boy hurling rocks along with a slingshot with an explanation to Palestinians how best to throw rocks:

“In order to hit the target, there are three conditions,” the guide recommends. “1. Stand stably and balance your legs, arms, and body well. 2. Focus your gaze on the center of the target, and do not look at anything else. 3. Keep the desired balance between your body and your weapon. You are the one that controls the weapon, and not the other way around,” the guide stresses, according to Palestinian Media Watch (PMW), a watchdog that monitors Palestinian incitement to terrorism and anti-Semitism.

“If you did not understand this, read it again, and if you still have not understood, here is an example picture for you,” Fatah posted.

Fatah has published inciting posts on multiple occasions.

Rock throwing at cars has caused hundreds of injuries and many deaths, including babies who were killed by stones thrown at their family’s cars.

PMW has called on the United Nations Childrens’ Fund (UNICEF), which is entrusted with protecting and defending the rights of every child, to issue a stern condemnation of Fatah’s recruiting children to commit acts of terror.

“Recruiting children to attempt to kill others and to endanger their own lives is clear child abuse,” PMW stated.

Palestinians often mobilize children, cynically placing them in harm’s way for petty political gains.

A Palestinian youth magazine taught its young and impressionable readers that Islam orders them to throw rocks at Jews. A poem published in the October edition of the Zayzafuna magazine, teaches children that throwing rocks at Jews is a religious act mandated by Muhammad, Islam’s founder.

“O children of my country, sing to the occupied homeland so it will be liberated…Sing by the order of Prophet [Muhammad] that we carry a rock, that we will throw at the people of the Gharqad [tree]”

The PA educational system routinely poisons the minds of Palestinian children by educating them to hate Israel and Israelis through terror-promoting messages. It even uses cultural mediums such as school plays, sports events and summer camps for this heinous objective.
