'Mothers of all Palestinians
should be
Killed'

"They should follow their sons, nothing would be more just. They should go, Otherwise, more little snakes will be raised there."

"They have to die and their houses should be demolished so that they cannot bear any more terrorists," said Ayelet Sheked, the Knesset member of the Yamina party, and former minister of justice in the Israeli government.

Exterminate All Arabs

Rabbi Yitzhak Shapira wrote his book "The King’s Torah", in which he explicitly called for the extermination of all Arabs without exception. Kill and harass them, Sunni, Shiites, Druze, Christians, or even atheists.

Shapira, Head of the "Od Yosef Chai" Council, and one of the most extremist settlers organizations, leading attacks on Palestinian civilians. "Kill children" he said, if they pose a threat..

He tackled his major question: When the Jews are allowed to kill "gentiles" (goyim)? And when should they kill them?

That means... Kill, Kill, and Kill

In all phases and stages of the Palestinian struggle for freedom, children were the most prominent victims, and almost every confrontation is not without the emergence of more child martyrs who fall victims to Israeli aggression, whether through the Israeli occupation army or settlers aggressiveness.

poignant symbols:

Mohammed Al-Durra

In the year 2000, Al-Durra was considered a Palestinian symbol, after the manner of his killing shocked the whole world while he was seeking protection in his father's arms. He was only 11 years old, with dreams of his own, but his dreams are in heaven now, and so is he.

The video below shows the scene.

Eman Hajo


Four-month-old girl, Iman Hajo, was killed as Israeli forces shelled Khan Younis town and refugee camp in the southern Gaza Strip.


Another "little snake" was killed, according to Israeli minister Shaked.

Faris Odeh

A Palestinian boy shot dead by the Israel Offence Forces in Gaza Strip while throwing stones on TANK, in the year 2000...

Faris had a dream of becoming a school teacher, before he was killed, but remain his dream, He taught the world what does it look like to be a Palestinian kid under occupation. Odeh was killed two months after Muhammad al-Durra was killed, and both of them turned into an icon for the Palestinians, and all those who fight for justice and freedom.

Mohammad Abu Khdair's

dreams were kidnapped and burnt with him when terrorist settlers decided to assassinate him.

His body was found in the bushes of Deir Yassin village, after he was kidnapped, tortured, and burned alive, on the 2nd of July, 2014.

CCTV footage appears to show the kidnapping of Palestinian teenager Abu Khdeir before his brutal murder.

What kind of human beings are those who commit such a horrible crime?
Are they even
Human?

Each child has a story, dreams, ambitions, and future.. all were assassined, and only wounds and pain left behind.

BUT, for a former Israeli JUSTICE minister, those "little N"SNAKES" should be KILLED before they grow up.

The image of the martyred child Hamza Nassar caught the attention and was imprinted in the hearts of many around the world, while he was covered in his shroud with a smile on his face with his innocent features.

This is how children in Gaza receive Israel bombs and airstrikes.

"We don't deserve this", the 10-year-old, Nadeen Abed al Lateef spoke to the world infront of the rubble of demolished houses in Gaza. The child has a message for America as well: “We’re just dying.” Asking the American people to stop giving weapons to the occupiers, to stop the KILLING of children and innocents.

Mission accomplished!


But they are not done yet.
