From Israeli tv, this report (a few months old now) shows a 14-and-a-half year old muslim who left his home to blow himself up either at the Shchem (Nablus) checkpoint, in order to kill soldiers, or within Israel itself, to kill anybody he could hurt, whether they be babies, the elderly or other 14-and-a-half years olds.
The child has considerable difficulty in removing the belt of explosives, because, as it turns out, they are not really designed to be taken off... the expectation, naturally enough, is that once you're wearing it, you will be dead before you will be undressed.
As the cautious guards insist he remove the remainder of his clothing, as a security measure, the child seems to become more upset at being seen in his underwear, than he was when wearing a belt-full of explosives..!
With monsters such as these as their enemy, it is remarkable that Israelis can still demonstrate the humanity that they do. I ask myself: were I in the shoes of the Israeli sentries, would I possess the discipline, the civility, to point my rifle and not blow that... that... person's... head clean off for what he tried to do? What to think of the human beings who recruited and sent this pathetic 14-year old in the first place... how they must smile at the gullibility of their flock.
Is this news piece to be a glimpse into Canada's future? Is this scene to become commonplace throughout the entire western world, at all our borders with islam, whether it be in the Middle East, or France's banlieus? Are these checkpoints the inevitable adaptation to the co-existence between the 21st century, and islam?
