Gaza’s children came out into the streets this past week to show support for the victims of Israeli extremist brutality, including the arson murder by an Israeli settler of an 18 month old child, Ali Dawabsheh. Dawabsheh died when his home was set fire by Jewish terrorists from nearby illegal Israeli settlements

Children in Gaza joined the growing outcry against Jewish terrorists from the illegal Israeli settlements that are funded by Israel’s rightwing government and with funds by American taxpayers.
Ali Dawabsheh (Dawabsha), an 18 month old child, was burned to death when his home was set on fire intentionally by Jewish terrorists who have been terrorizing Palestinian civilians for years with support of Israel’s extremist government of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
Netanyahu has supported the expansion of settlements on lands stolen by the government from Palestinian civilians and has blocked all efforts to implement a peace accord, promoting more violence by Israelis.
UN humanitarian officials report that from 2006 through September 2014, there were 756 settler-related incidents in the West Bank resulting in Palestinian casualties, including 11 deaths. Another 1,605 caused damage to Palestinian property or land.
Dawabsheh lived in Duma, a Palestinian village near Nablus and the Israeli terrorist settlements of Kida an Ahiya, illegal settlements built on stolen Palestinian lands for extremist Jewish fanatics. Homes near the Dawabsheh home which was burned to the ground in the Jewish terrorist attack were sprayed painted with typical racist anti-Arab graffiti by Jewish extremists who are supported by the Netanyahu government.
The children of Gaza are marching in solidarity with the victims of the Israeli terrorism and with the victims of Israeli terrorism, Ali Dawabsheh. Last summer, more than 500 children were targeted by Israeli soldiers, many of them terrorists recruited by the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) from the extremist Jewish-only settlements.
Palestinian children are often targeted by Israeli soldiers and by settler terrorists as a means of punishing Palestinians and pressuring them to flee the land which Israel continues to seek to steal.
The Gaza children are joining the voices of children throughout Palestine who are demanding that the world intervene in the occupation and prevent more killings including the killing of Children.
The Gaza Strip remains under siege by Israel which is preventing basic food and clothing and supplies from entering the territory which Israel occupied in June 1967 and which has been under military occupation through 2005 from inside the territory and is now occupied by Israeli soldiers that have surrounded the strips borders and control all entry and exit of civilians and supplies.
Thousands of Palestinian civilians have been killed by the embargo imposed by Israel against the civilians, which continue to be the targets of Israeli rocket fire from Israeli settlements along the Gaza border and from the Israeli military which frequently enters the Gaza Strip to kill more civilians.
Netanyahu has ordered the arrest of the Jewish terrorist suspects but most people believe that they will be released or given light sentences with no significant punishments, a practice that Israel employs for criminals who are Jewish in Israel and who have committed violent crimes in the occupied territories.
