A video has emerged of a Palestinian father using his 3-year-old son to bait Israeli Defence Forces personnel. The father is saying in Arabic that the soldiers should shoot and kill the child, stating that they will have it on camera.

Instead of shooting the child, or showing any sign of aggression towards him, one of the Israeli soldiers instead offers the boy his hand. The boy gladly responds and gives the soldier a handshake.

The father then shouts to the boy telling him to throw stones at the solder. The boy is then seen picking up various rocks and stones and throwing them around. However, it is important to note that the child does not aim the stones at the soldiers. In fact, he throws them in the opposite direction. He clearly knows better than his father, even at the age of three, after all, why would he want to throw stones at someone who was nice to him?

The father is telling them to shoot his son so they can have it on camera. A soldier instead shakes the boy’s hand. The father then tells the child to throw stones at the soldiers. The child simply throws stones around, but not at the soldiers.

We must #pray for these children that this cycle of hatred will be broken.

For a father to be using his own child in this manner is… beyond words. There will never be peace when parents use their children in this way, and Palestinian leaders, teachers and parents have been teaching their children hate for too long.

Unfortunately the abuse of Palestinian children has been viewable for all to see in recent days. Last week we reported on Hamas’ military “summer camps”, where more than 50,000 children are taught to hate Israel and are trained to fight against them.

Please pray for the Palestinian children, that they will turn away from the hate of their parents. And let us pray videos like this are shared far and wide so all will see the truth.

As Golda Meir said, “Peace will come when the Arabs will love their children more than they hate us.”
