Weaponizing the Death of Palestinian Kids to Attack Israel in the ICC
Weaponizing the Demise of Palestinian Young children to Assault Israel in the ICC: Our Heartfelt Condolences to the beloved types remaining behind
The Palestinian version of taking in your cake and leaving it complete is specifically macabre and sinister. On the 1 hand, the Palestinian Authority (PA) actively brainwashes Palestinian little ones to dislike, kill, and be killed. Getting sent the young children to die, the PA then takes advantage of their deaths as a suggests to attack Israel, in any forum achievable, such as the Intercontinental Felony Court (ICC), alleging that Israel that is accountable for the several Palestinian youngsters and youth dying.
Palestinian Media Look at (PMW) has uncovered how the PA indoctrinates Palestinian youth to find “Martyrdom” i.e., Shahada (“death for Allah”), and glorifies terrorist “Martyrs” who heeded the PA call — specifically teenager terrorists who die in violent confrontations with Israel.
The PA and its Fatah celebration encourage younger Palestinian children to commit violence and terror by actively advertising violence and glorifying previous terrorists. In addition, they set up gatherings at which youngsters costume as soldiers and pose with actual weapons, making them truly feel like troopers of a deserving cause.
The following are photos from 1 party illustrating this PA/Fatah indoctrination of children.
When the Qalqilya branch of Fatah’s Lion Cubs and Flowers children’s motion participated in a ceremony marking the anniversary of the loss of life of previous PLO and PA Chairman Yasser Arafat and the 1988 Palestinian declaration of independence, young children posed with weapons in military services uniforms on stage:

This was just one event of quite a few this kind of gatherings. PMW has uncovered that PA summer months camps prepare small children in terrorism, dealing with weapons, and battle and military drills. Palestinian leaders also make little ones pose for shots with real weapons.
Obtaining actively sent these youngsters to die, the PA then embarks on a campaign to use their deaths to attack Israel in the ICC.
The hottest PA drive in the ICC was exposed adhering to a conference concerning the PA International Minister and the ICC prosecutor:
Formal PA Tv set newsreader: “[PA] Minister of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates Riyad Al-Malki gave Intercontinental Felony Court (ICC) Common Prosecutor Karim Khan a doc on Israel’s intense crimes towards the Palestinian young children, in accordance with his intent to publish a policy paper regarding crimes that are remaining dedicated in opposition to little ones. Al-Malki and his accompanying delegation satisfied with the ICC typical prosecutor near to the start off of the 21st Assembly of States Parties to the Rome Statute –which set up the ICC in The Hague — that will last until Dec. 10 .”

The formal PA everyday included that the PA campaign was “in the shadow of a bloodier 12 months as a final result of the Israeli colonialist occupation’s actions.”
Although the PA’s sinister use of the dying of the children it despatched to die is not astonishing, it would show up that the ICC prosecutor seems to be falling into the lure laid by the PA. In accordance to the PA day-to-day report, adhering to the meeting, the ICC prosecutor “emphasized” that “he is giving priority” to investigating the PA statements and intends to stop by “Palestine” in 2023:
The ICC common prosecutor emphasized that he is giving precedence to the problem in Palestine, and that his office is actively working on all the conditions that are subject matter to investigation. He emphasized that he is functioning on keeping a stop by to the State of Palestine at the get started of upcoming 12 months .”

As PMW has mentioned, the previous ICC prosecutor satisfied on scores of events with PA officers, together with a PA recognized committee that represents internationally-designated terror corporations these types of as Hamas and the Well known Front for the Liberation of Palestine. The romance concerning the ICC prosecutor and the PA was so shut that the prosecutor overlooked the simple fact that the PA deliberately submitted a falsified doc to the courtroom, and even secretly educated the PA of her intention to open up an formal investigation, just asking that the PA quickly continue to keep the final decision key.
Even with the point that the shut partnership amongst the PA and the office of the ICC prosecutor termed into issue each the independence and neutrality of the former prosecutor, it would seem that the new prosecutor is continuing the inappropriate actions.
Also fascinating to observe was Al-Malki’s remark that the PA proceeds to cooperate with the ICC and is actively supporting the ICC investigation:
He pointed out that the Point out of Palestine is continuing to cooperate with the court docket and the common prosecutor’s staff in purchase to hand about all the documented information and facts that proves that senior Israeli army and civil officials are committing extreme and ongoing crimes from the Palestinian people…

As PMW has already shown, if the PA is actively supporting an ICC investigation, the PA is prevented by law from receiving any US assist.
