Violence in East Jerusalem; 'Intifada starts today,' Palestinian kids say
Over 120 children and youths rioted in East Jerusalem after Israel moves to demolish home of terrorist behind vehicular attack; kids as young as ten shout 'we'll fight till the end.'

Scores of young Palestinians, some as young as 10, took to the streets Wednesday in East Jerusalem, after Israeli security forces demolished the home of a terrorist who plowed his car into a crowd of people waiting at the Ammunition Hill station of Jerusalem's Light Rail on Oct. 22, killing three-month-old Haya Ziesl Baron.

 

 

The youths burnt tires, blocking the entrance to Shuafat, and threw stones at the police checkpoint. A number of children aged 9 and 10 wore masks and shouted "we will keep fighting to the end."

"The intifada has started," a 17-year-old told Ynet. "We won't remain quiet about what happens in East Jerusalem and inside Al-Aqsa. We will continue to struggle and support terror against Israel, that is the only solution we have to save ourselves."

Elaborating on his frustration, the youth also expressed anger towards the Arab world and Palestinians: "Unfortunately I don't feel supported, not by the Palestinian government and not by the Arab world. We are disappointed and have nothing to do but protest, block roads and tell the world."

Similar claims were made by the family of Abed a-Rahman a-Shaludi, the terrorist behind the October vehicular attack whose Silwan home was destroyed overnight.

Nabrus, his 16-year-old sister, praised the deadly terror attack on a Jerusalem synagogue, saying "it’s a very good thing, I hope more such attacks take place, and more Jews get killed." According to her, she is "proud of her brother and I am willing to follow in his wake. I am willing to give my life to al-Aqsa."

She described the events leading up to nighttime demolition. "At one o'clock at night, police came and asked us to get dressed within five minutes. They wanted to take us somewhere and after a short while, they took us to a palce near Silwan and put us in a large tent. At four in the morning, we heard a very loud explosion and the kids who were with us starting crying out of fear.

 

"When we returned home, I couldn't believe that it was our house. They destroyed everything and we were left without a roof. I don't know where we'll sleep, eat, and get dressed. Our situation is very critical. Where is Abu Mazen and the entire Arab people? Why is everyone keeping quiet and not taking care of us?"
