1. What?
Dagan ,   Israel   (03.06.13)
Threatened with sexual assault? That just sounds like absolute bullshit.
2. Yet the UN is deaf blind and mute when used as human shields
EST ,   Miami USA   (03.06.13)
3. The poor innocent Palestinian lambs!
tiki ,   belgium   (03.06.13)
Since when is someone from 15/17 a child? In Arab countries girls as young as 12/14 (or younger) are being forced to marry some old uncle. So what is according UNICEF a child in Arabia? Throwing stones can kill people, so if Pal-parents don't educate their little darlings on that fact, their children become criminals and they accomplices to murder. If UNICEF would start doing something useful and file a 22 page rapport on Pal-propaganda TV, get them of the streets into school (after the inciting hate books have been thrown into the bin), the rate of criminal Pal-children might drop and Israel doesn't have to re-educate these Palestinian lambs. UNICEF, cut out the BS!
4. More UN bias
DavidM ,   USA   (03.06.13)
The United Nations report is just more of the same bias from that corrupt organization. These are the same people who assisted Saddam Hussein with his oil for food charade while he was torturing and murdering his own citizens. Nothing from the United Nations has any validity.
5. hey, the UN can go to hell
marv   (03.06.13)
the UN with their pillay's and goldstones who sanitize butchers assad killing 80000 and haniyeh who throws gazans off rooftops while sending his brotherinlaw to israeli hosptitals are an organisation of filth that only encourgages and sanctions killings. The UN itself represents scumbags and dirth and should be disbanded as it serves no purpose anymore.
6. why do we even give a shit what the UN
JL   (03.06.13)
thinks or says anymore
7. More UN bias

8. UN Nonsense
Leon ,   Grand Rapids USA   (03.06.13)
Why are these "pronouncements" even reported ? They're not news; they're propaganda.
9. The Palis use photos of free children
Reuven   (03.06.13)
sticking their hands and noses through metal gates and claim they show incarcerated ones. They are excellent liars. And the useless UN laps up their lies.
10. Way to raise the next generation of terrorists
and then whine "why do they hate us???". Duh.
11. What an absolute nonsense!
Mira ,   Vienna   (03.06.13)
The West has not got any idea of the Palestinina "minors". There have completey severed themselves from reality. Every "minor" above the age of 9 is a full-fledged educated terrorist and behaving like one. Maybe they should take the chance and start to look at the footage!
12. Palestinian minors treat Israelis poorly
alferd ,   CLEVELAND   (03.06.13)
USUAL BIASED UN DOC...(made up by Islamists' pressures) nothing new here just JEWS "zero", everyone else "two stars"
14. Thousand of kid dead in Syria? Girls abused i Saudi Arabia!
David ,   Israel   (03.06.13)
Female circumcision rampant in the Muslim world, Children "educated"to ill Israelis od ALL creeds. Kids fitted out to wear suicide vests packed with explosives. Islamists use children as human shields, All this but Israel is the bad one! It should be noted that one of the 2013 Vice Presidents of the Executive Board of UNCEF is H.E. Mr. Mohammad Khazaee, Permanent Representative, Islamic Republic of Iran! Now you know where this condemnation come from!
15. And U.S. was accused of torturing Iraqi Arabs
Barbara ,   Haifa Israel   (03.06.13)
humiliating them, beating them and killing them whenever they felt like it. Then if that isn't enough for UN, let them check out Iran's treatment of its civilians or the African problem(s). Wait - Syria is most recent - UN, where are you in relation to Syria?
16. UN-Bias
Max   (03.06.13)
To all of you who lament the UN bias, didn't you read the article? The Israeli government itself worked with the UNESCO on the paper and this year Israel is on the board of the UNESCO. And Biden panders to the AIPAC. Wonder what happens when Obama comes?
17. Instead of children,their parents should be prosecuted!
Jouko ,   Finland   (03.06.13)
18. To all the indignant Talkbackers
Stan ,   Israel   (03.06.13)
When will you begin to understand? Blacks can kill Blacks, Arabs can kill Arabs etc etc. The White South Africans went through this for almost 40 years. The two countries with the most UN condemnations------ SA and Israel. So if you don't want Israel to be boycotted out of existence (as happened to the White Regime in SA,) face the fact that TO ENSURE ISRAEL'S CONTINUED EXISTENCE, Israel must withdraw from the ocupied territories.
19. stones thrown by teens kill !
trump   (03.06.13)
Their fate is clearly in prisons.
20. Media vs UN Crap
Brod ,   USA   (03.06.13)
Israel's media should not be a channel for UN Crap that tarnishes Israel. It is time to stop promoting the propaganda of Israel's enemies. This continues to inflame the dark forces to crusade against Israel.
21. UNICEF and Iran
Howard ,   Seattle USA   (03.06.13)
Meanwhile Iran which is a country that EXECUTES children and had Iranian children walk accross Iraqi minefileds during the ran /Iraq war as human mine detectors is on the board of UNCEF.What hipocrosy!!!!
22. Poor little Kiddies, to dumb to know
BEN JABO (MACHAL) ,   ISRAEL   (03.06.13)
that if they didn't do the crime, they would have been jugged in the first place
23. A lot of apologists
Sarah B ,   Tel Aviv/London   (03.06.13)
excusing the mistreatment of children. Imagine the stink they would raise if those children were Jewish. Pure racism pure and simple, we are becoming Germany in 1933
24. To: No. 18
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (03.06.13)
You are a complete lunatic. And when the international community "demands" that Israel withdraw from Haifa, Jaffa and Akko .... how do you propose to respond? In addition to being a lunatic, you're an idiot. Israel is not going to uproot five hundred thousand Jews in order to placate a terrorist rabble that belong in Jordan to begin with.
25. Stan # 18
Arnold ,   Canada   (03.06.13)
1920 Jerusalem, 1921 Jaffa , 1929 Hebron. During those years Palestinian Arabs murdered Palestinian Jews just because they were Jews. Then in 1948 till 1949 the 1st of several battles with the Arabs. All before "occupation" I am not against your post and something has to give but do not throw BS out by calling the other posters indignant. These kids are in jail because they have been indoctrinated all through childhood at home and in school.
26. A minor terrorist is also a terrorist and has
vardina   (03.06.13)
to be treated accordingly regardless of age.
27. Simple solution
USA   (03.06.13)
FINE the kids' parents. That shoud put a stop to behaviour that can maim/blind and kill. Kids should be in school, doing, homework or something productive. They are under the charge of their parents - so hold the parents responsible.
28. Imagine if..
Shame on you all!!   (03.06.13)
..if a Jewish child was dragged out of bed in the middle of the night by armed Arab soldiers, bound and blindfolded, beaten, denied their legal rights and subjected to cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment until they signed a confession written in Arabic? If this happened every day to hundreds of Jewish children the posters here would be crying blue murder but just because these children are not Jewish the posters here don't give a damn that hundreds of children are being abused by Israelis. With such a racist attitude like this is it any wonder that the rest of the world reviles Israel?
29. "widespread, systematic and institutionalized," remind you
of anyone? sieg heil!
ltrail ,   United States   (03.06.13)
The UNICEF report said, "Over the past decade, Israeli forces have arrested, interrogated and prosecuted around 7,000 Palestinian children ages 12-17, most of them boys, ...." Obviously, the parents of the children are the root of the problem. They are teaching their children by their own actions, words, and attitudes. Perhaps the adults should be in jail instead.
