Using kids as bombs

It may take awhile for it to play, and you’ll have to sit through a commercial, but watch this report by Martin Fletcher of NBC News– about a 15-year-old would-be suicide bomber from Nablus, and his angry and brave mother.

When will Mahmoud Abbas act against the people who recruit these kids, strap explosives to their bodies and send them to what they hope will be their deaths, and the deaths of many others?

Update: The Jerusalem Post has more on this incident, including the following from the boy’s mother:

“He’s just a child. If he was a child from a rich family they would not have sent him there. But because he is poor and he’s from the refugee camp they play with his head. I hope that God will avenge this.”
