joshua789: Meanwhile here's what Israeli children are offered:
jonathan's video is a hamas children's tv programme broadcast to all gazan children
your photo is a posed photo of one israeli child
you are playing the racist game of showing one person, and attributing their actions to a whole people
let's look at the photo …
yes, that's the well-known 2006 photo of a girl who's been in a shelter in northern israel for five days when finally the idf arrive and they can come out
some adults have previously written messages such as "love from israel" on the shells (obviously, when they were stored horizontally), and the journalists present have asked the girl to draw an israeli flag on one shell
ok, not a good thing to do, but a unique incident, staged by journalists, and not requested by her parents or her teachers, and certainly not "on offer" to israeli children generally
here's how it was described to journalist lisa goldman by two of the photographers (see http://ittay.blogspot.co.uk/2006/07/to-nasrallah-with-love-from-israel-a... ) …
Apparently one or some of the parents wrote messages in Hebrew and English on the tank shells to Nasrallah. "To Nasrallah with love," they wrote to the man whose name was for them a devilish image on television - the man who mockingly told Israelis, via speeches that were broadcast on Al Manar and Israeli television, that Hezbollah was preparing to launch even more missiles at them.
The photograpers gathered around. Twelve of them. Do you know how many that is? It's a lot. And they were all simultaneously leaning in with their long camera lenses, clicking the shutter over and over. The parents handed the markers to the kids and they drew little Israeli flags on the shells. Photographers look for striking images, and what is more striking than pretty, innocent little girls contrasted with the ugliness of war? The camera shutters clicked away, and I guess those kids must have felt like stars, especially since the diversion came after they'd been alternately bored and terrified as they waited out the shelling in their bomb shelters.
