Tsk, tsk. Doesn't he know that smoking kills?
3. What civilised people
David ,   Israel   (03.31.13)
And somehow we are constantly pressured to make concessions for peace with people like this that see no harm in training children to fight. Rather then shielding them from the violence they feel it is necessary to keep the vicious cycle revolving by sending this child to fight, in the same way Hamas uses them to scout for IDF troops while their fighters sit from cover. Even if Israel was brought to its knees, you would never see us sending our children of such an age to fight. This is what reminds me of Golda Meir's quote "there will be peace with the Arabs when they learn to love their children more then they hate us"
4. Where is Roger Waters, Stevie Wonder, etc?
Rhonda ,   Chicago, USA   (03.31.13)
Where are the letter writing campaigns, protest marches, boycotts and all the many Human Rights activists (including MK Zoabi) in defense of this child?

10. what a difference between jews and muslims
11. A perfect example and by-product of...
Jake Stone ,   USA   (03.31.13)
...the religion (Islam) of peace! The only thing this godless religion does is produce murder and untold suffering! It has got to be destroyed at all cost! It is the greatest threat to the freedom of humanity!!!
12. Wait until they reach power...
Keren, IL-BR   (03.31.13)
I regret to say but... maybe they will miss Assad... What a brilliant future is waiting for them...
13. when will waters give a speech
JL   (03.31.13)
or a concert in damascus?..oh i guess theres no jews to blame..and whats going on there is not apartheid
14. you will never hear a word from liberals about this
frank ,   rehovot   (03.31.13)
because it doesn't fit within their liberal narrative. Other than blaming jews for everything, which does fit, arab on arab crime, like black on black crime never makes the news as there is just too much of it. But "jews are news" and anytime you can bring it around to us it sells!!
15. Who is to blame
israel israeli ,   tel aviv   (03.31.13)
This is not a surprise. A war of genocide of Sunni against Alawi, Christians and Shia, in a strategic location where neither side has anywhere to go, flooded with weapons by interested parties. Close to 100,000 dead and more than a million refugees. Who is to blame? The Left. Imagine if they supported Israel's liberation of Golan and condemned Assad's occupation of Lebanon. Imagine if they had helped the SLA patriots against Assad and Hezbolla. Imagine if they kept a lid on Islamist Erdogan and ensured a modern secular Turkey allied with Israel. Imagine if they supported the Shah instead of the Ayatollahs. History will remember the Left's preoccupation with destroying Israel and establishing a new Arab state for an invented Arab people as the main cause of pain and suffering in the Middle East since 1948.
16. You mean this is not Ilan Papp??
Jon ,   Haifa   (03.31.13)
17. arabs show their cause is worth more than their children
zionist forever   (03.31.13)
If his uncle and his comrades would even consider letting this kid join up and probably get himself killed in the process then they are selfish and have their priorities all wrong. They might want to topple Assad and they might be willing to sacrifice their lives to do it but to allow a child who doesn't really even understand what he is fighting for other than what other people have told him its all about it wrong and anybody that loved that child would tell him to go home not proudly fight side by side with him. If this child dies in the fighting which he almost certainly will be it won't be Assad responsible it will be the adults who let him join them in the fighting. Once again the arabs show that to them the political cause is worth more than even the lives of children.
18. At least he is hating his own instead of Jew (for the moment
Alan ,   SA   (03.31.13)
19. all feedbackers
aaron ,   toronto,canada   (03.31.13)
I don't believe that all of you can't see that this is all a STAGED film.The kid can't hold up a rifle,can't smoke and is scared sh*t of the firecracker that he throws.His SUPPOSED uncle has to stop him from running away.All of this still doesn't make them look good as far as bringing up their children.
20. Why all the negative comments?
Tahl   (03.31.13)
This child is fighting against Assad, thus making him one of the good guys
21. Tahl # 20
Eaglebeak ,   Left Coast, USA   (03.31.13)
There are no "good guys" involved in this mess. Little children have no business fighting wars and only a depraved people would encourage it.
22. #14 You will never hear a word from
Get Real ,   UK   (03.31.13)
liberals as they have never accepted Israel's complaint of use of human shields by Palestinian terror groups.
23. Just like Israeli settlers kids.
jackflash   (03.31.13)
..where's the difference?? I see none.
24. To: No. 23
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (04.01.13)
Please find me just one cigarette smoking, machine gun toting Israeli boy, and I just might listen to your nonsense. Otherwise -- get lost, loser.
25. # 23 Please Jack....
Eaglebeak ,   Left Coast, USA   (04.01.13)
do us a favor and don't have any children of your own.
