Why Terrorism Strikes at Children

nmActs of terror against the young are the unadvertised “latest trend” in global political violence. For the first time since the Holocaust, slaying children has turned into a modus operandi. Since 9/11, they are terrorists’ preferred targets.

The Targets:

Episodes of child-directed violence occurred as early as May 1970 in Israel, when thirty-four children were killed and wounded in the Avivim school bus massacre. In May 1974 hostage-takers in Ma’alot detonated hand grenades and sprayed high school students with machine-gun fire. In April 1980, terrorists took hold of the nursery in kibbutz Misgav Am, killed an infant and injured four children. In July of that year, in Antwerp, Belgium, a Fatah member cast hand grenades into a group of Jewish schoolchildren at a bus stop.

After the outbreak of the Al-Aqsa Intifada in September 2000, casualties among the Israeli young multiplied. In a single episode in June 2001, twenty-one teenagers lost their lives in the “Delphinarium” discotheque in Tel Aviv. By mid-2002, child-targeting become systematic: bomb explosion in Jerusalem next to a group of women with baby carriages (March 2); bombing of a discotheque in Tel Aviv (May 24); children killed in a Petah Tikva ice cream parlor (May 27).

When zoomed-in on selected Israeli localities, the picture becomes grim indeed. In Itamar, a gunman shot to death two students playing basketball outside the Hitzim school and then killed three more teenagers inside in May 2002. About a month later, two militants broke into the home of the Shabo family, killed the mother and her children, ages fifteen, twelve, and five, and severely wounded a ten-year-old and a thirteen-year-old. In another month, a terrorist broke into another private home, stabbed the husband and wife and them ran his knife through the empty beds of their eight children, away with grandparents. In March 2011 the Fogel family was slaughtered: along with their parents, stabbed to death was a boy of eleven, his four-year-old brother, and their three-month old sister; at the trial, terrorists regretted not to have noticed two other sleeping children

Itamar is a settlement where “Jewish fanatics” are said to “provoke victimized Arabs” to kill children as the only response against occupation. But Sderot is not a disputed terroritory. “A present for the start of the new school year,” the Islamic Jihad website flaunted first of their September 2007 missile strikes, which sent twelve Sderot kindergarteners to the hospital to be treated for shock.[i] Terrorists send 3,200 Qassam rockets against this Israeli town in 2008.[ii] Residents reported that the shelling intensified when children were on their way to and from classes.

Attacks on schools and yeshivas in Israel reached their peak with the massacre at Merkaz HaRav in Jerusalem in March 2008. All but one of the children had just gotten off a yellow school bus in Sa’ad on April 7, 2011 when a targeted missile hit, mortally wounding the remaining boy. On March 19 the following year, a self-styled Al-Qaeda operative opened fire in a Jewish school in Toulouse, France.

“If the Jews left Palestine to us, would we start loving them? Of course not. . . . They are enemies not because they occupied Palestine,” some Islamist clerics admit openly and urge: we will “annihilate them, until not a single Jew remains on the face of the Earth.”[iii] It is as if the Biblical Amalek has finally broken portentous silence to speak his mind about the annihilation of Israel–his raison d’être. According to the tradition, Amalek attacks from the rear, slaying the least protected, especially children. Yet, while Amalek’s hate is for Israel alone, his accomplices today do not discriminate any kids.

Muslim children are among their first victims. In Iraq they are assaulted in school buildings and on playgrounds—in Baghdad, Ramadi, Tuz Khurmato, and Ba’qubah (July 13, 2005, December 3, 2006; January 28, 2007, October 12, 2007, January 22, 2008, and December 7, 2009), to list a few cases. On May 6, 2007 the Islamists bombed a UN-run elementary school in the Gaza refugee camp of Rafah during a sports festival, which the extremists had declared un-Islamic. A suicide car school bombing on December 28, 2008 in Khost, Afghanistan, was one of 1,153 Taliban acts against young students in two preceding years—via shootings, torture, acid, arson, grenades, mines, and rockets.[iv] Boko Haram of Nigeria has been targeting schools since 2010. Thousands of children have been unable to attend classes as a result; hundreds have been killed to confirm the Jihadists’ stand against Westernized education. More than 200 girls kidnapped on the night of 14-15 April, 2014 are still missing: Boko Haram terrorists oppose female education; in the past, they have used abducted schoolgirls as sex slaves.[v]

When Thailand militants assailed a school bus in Ratchaburi province in June 2002, no one saw the atrocity as a sign of a new trend. Yet, in the decade that followed targeting children turned into a tactic that crossed all geographical and ideological lines. On July 2011 a self-styled “crusader” against European leftists and Muslims killed 69 people in a shooting spree in the Norwegian youth summer camp on Utøya island; 50 victims were 18-years old and younger.

Why the young?

Terror stipulates unceasing acceleration. When successful, perpetrators seek to take advantage of intensifying anxiety and strive to build up momentum. Random, en masse brutality against civilians—emblematic for the 20th-century terror–culminated in a spectacular act of apocalyptic destruction on 9/11. It made conspicuous that real targets are not those who die. The violent act is a ghastly message whose purpose is to intimidate the broader public, physically unaffected by bloodshed. The next round of sustained terrorization required increasingly severe psychological and emotional impact, not necessarily measured by casualty count.

Terrorists are nihilists par excellence: they strike at the essence of the mainstream culture, seeking to wipe out its pivotal symbols and meanings. In the new millennia, amid a raging sea of conflicting concepts, pluralistic connotations, confusing priorities, habitual skepticism, intellectual and ethical relativism, perhaps the only enduring value are children. The essentiality of their welfare, health, and security remain implicit and unconditional; no sane person will claim that while it is not nice to hurt children, there is another side to the argument. Today, children are the last consecrated absolute. For its part, militant nihilism strives to ruin first and foremost what their contemporaries hold sacred.

On September 1, 2004, amid the festivities on the “Day of Knowledge,” 32 terrorists held hostage 1,200 children, parents, and teachers inside School No. 1 in the town of Beslan in North Ossetia. The hostage-takers declared their unattainable demand for Russia’s evacuation of Chechnya and their real intention: “We are the terrorists, we’re here to slay.”[vi] What followed “probably was the single most horrific act since the downfall of National Socialism.”[vii] Indeed, the terrorists have turned the school into a mini-replica of a death camp, denying children food, water, and medications for three days. Dozens of little hostages perished in flames when a bomb detonated inside the building; dozens were shot in the back as they jumped out of windows and ran for their lives after the security forces attacked. Among at least 334 fatalities, 186 were Christian and Muslim children; over 700 were wounded in this “carefully planned mass murder operation.”[viii]

“Nothing horrifies more than the murder of children” because it “is the ultimate rejection of life.” Among the suicide terrorists there are those “who not only wish to destroy their own life, but life in general. These are the candidates for mass killings,” particularly child killings because children are the quintessence of vitality, of sparkling aliveness, the most vibrant and spontaneous of the living, emblematic of life itself. They are also our connection to the future, a link to immortality; by attacking children, terrorists seek to destroy life-as-is and life-to-be.[ix]

Death Worship:

Terrorists have repeatedly declared that they “desire Death” and love it as much as others love life.[x]Beneath a thin veneer baring attributes of various ideological trends, they are engaged in a form of politicized idolatry. They slaughter children as the designated, most pure, and perfect sacrifice to death, which they worship: “Eyal, Gilad and Naftali were killed by people who believed in death”.[xi]

Modern death-worship is part of a long tradition. “Even their sons and their daughters do they burn in the fire to their gods” (Deuteronomy 12:31). Throughout the past century, this prophecy has been repeatedly fulfilled: be it the Nazi Hitlerjugen or the Iranian Basij project—various ideologies have validated child-sacrifices. The Jihadists offer Muslim children to Moloch as suicide bombers and human shields. Under Jihadist couching, between 72 and 80 per cent of children living in the Palestinian Authority yearn to die as martyrs.[xii] When in power, as in Gaza, terrorists construct for children under their control an official, prescribed culture in which death is preferred to life.

The Biblical commandment to “choose life” entails a possibility to opt for death. Militant nihilists do so, and the roots of their destructiveness are infinitely deeper than any political dispute. “That is the difference between a culture of life and one of death, and this has become the battle of our time, not only in Israel but in Syria, in Iraq, in Nigeria and elsewhere.” This battle, in fact, has been waged for thousands of years, and—invariably—“cultures that worship death, die, while those that sanctify life, live on. . . . May the God of life, in whose image we are, teach all humanity to serve Him by sanctifying life.”[xiii]

    “When you come into the land that the Lord your God is giving you, you shall not learn to follow the abominable practices of those nations. There shall not be found among you anyone who burns his son or his daughter as an offering . . . . .for whoever does these things is an abomination to the Lord. And because of these abominations the Lord your God is driving them out before you. (Deuteronomy 18:9-14)

    Then the Lord said to Moses, “Write this as a memorial in a book and recite it in the ears of Joshua, that I will utterly blot out the memory of Amalek from under heaven.” And Moses built an altar and called the name of it, The Lord Is My Banner, saying, “A hand upon the throne of the Lord! The Lord will have war with Amalek from generation to generation.” (Exodus 17:14-16)

    And Samuel said to Saul, “The Lord sent me to anoint you king over his people Israel; now therefore listen to the words of the Lord. Thus says the Lord of hosts, ‘I have noted what Amalek did to Israel in opposing them on the way when they came up out of Egypt. Now go and strike Amalek and devote to destruction all that they have. Do not spare them, but kill both man and woman, child and infant, ox and sheep, camel and donkey.’” (1 Samuel 15:1-3)

    (But note the removal of collective guilt according to Ezekiel 18 and that the Jews in the time of Esther killed only their enemies, but not their woman and children)

    Thank you for describing the underlying metaphysical forces at work behind these atrocities. I find it significant that ISIS & other similar Islamic groups use the black flag. In the west at least black is the colour of evil & death, & I suspect the people who use it know this.

    I also think you made a very good point that for the west childhood remains the only absolute value left. It helps me understand why, here in the UK, criminals escape justice if they can tell the magistrate or judge that they have children to look after.

    First of all, Muslims aren’t radicals and extremists perpetrating terrorism for various political causes. Instead, they are jihadists, i.e., Mujahideen (holy warriors), waging jihad, which is a holy war waged by all Muslims both violently and non-violently against infidels to ultimately make Islam supreme throughout the world. Indeed, that is the sole fundamental purpose of mainstream orthodox Islam.

    As a matter of fact, waging jihad against infidels to ultimately make Islam supreme in one form or another, either violently or non-violently, is a fundamental holy obligation incumbent upon all Muslims, including women and children, and because Islam is a so-called religion that executes all apostates and all blasphemers, all mainstream orthodox Muslims in the world are jihadists in one form or another. Otherwise, they are executed for apostasy and blasphemy according to the dictates of Islam.

    Indeed, this is the reason why we often observe women and children being used as suicide/homicide bombers and especially as human shields. Not to mention as well that the jihadists that comprise AQ are no more or no less radical than the millions of Muslims that have already migrated to America for the nefarious purposes of mass Muslim infiltration and eventual demographic conquest.

    Furthermore, Muslims only adhere to Sharia, which is Islamic totalitarian law, because they believe it to be divine and also the will of Allah”, and as such must always supersede all laws that emanate from mere mortal man. As a matter of fact, the Islamic totalitarian world fully intends to eventually replace all laws that emanate from man in the world with Sharia.

    Thus, while the infidel world adheres to the Geneva Conventions, Muslims, on the other hand, only adhere to Sharia instead, and Sharia advocates the targeting of innocent women and children non-combatants because it is the weak underbelly of the infidel world.

      1) Yes Jihad is a pillar of Islam ,but let me explain what Jihad is ;It is obligatory as a defense when Islamic territories are occupied by non-Muslim invaders such as Palestine ,Afghanistan and so far parts of Iraq .2)Jihad is also the third means to face those who try to prevent Muslims from calling non Muslims to Islam .( why accept US sanctions on countries who refuse democracy).3) The biggest lie which the Jewish propaganda poured into its audience is that Islam is forcibly attended ,a very vivid fact makes this lie collapse : Why did Muslims in the previously USSR cling to Islam in spite of the enormous pressure from the greatest communist state then ?4) I doubt if Obama Yomoma has ever heard about Zakat : How a wealthy Muslim who owns more than 90 grams of 23 carat gold (or equivelant should pay 2.5% of his wealth to be distributed upon the poor people of his district .5) Islam is not a racist religion ,nor a tribal system : Salman was a Persian , Bilal was an Ethiopian slave before he was freed by Abu Bakr , and all the three were companions of Prophet Muhammed .

        So I’m supposed to ignore the infamous sword verses of the Koran, which command all Muslims to wage jihad against infidels until Islam is made supreme, and instead believe your unhinged garbage. Yeah right, you are a fricking comedienne, only I’m not laughing because it isn’t funny.

I don’t know what kind of games you are playing, but you are going to end up getting banned if you don’t stop. From now on, when I read something stupid, I’ll just ignore it and not respond since it is probably you masquerading as someone else. You’re the only one who says really stupid things on a regular basis. So it shouldn’t be too hard to detect.

The FPM credibility on this score has been shattered so I’d pull your punches on the multiple personas business. I’ve never bothered doing that on any web site. What you see from the one BB name is what you’ll get from me.

            As for being the one to say stupid things on a daily basis, I’d check your own writing a little more carefully. A post from a couple of days ago where you drew a distinction between “waging world jihad for a Caliphate” vs the Muslim intention for achieving “worldwide domination of Islam” is still one of your priceless OYM snafus of FPM.

      I see so many Muslims every day going about their daily business and it’s pretty tough to tell they’re all waging jihad each and every day, 24/7/365. Most Muslims don’t wage jihad, don’t get involved in any way w/jihad. Why is that? Because there are other demands in life than waging jihad. it might be incumbent upon every Muslim to wage jihad. But there are slackers in the Muslim world just like there are culturally religious slackers in the Christian world. Do you see every Christian observing fast days and Lenten observances even though they’re far less onerous than those involved w/Ramadan? That slackerhood is certainly true for Catholics and Jews and Protestants so why don’t you believe that’s true for Muslims? Because you’re someone whose focus is solely on a fraction of the behavior of the world’s Muslim communities. Yet, because the tenets of the faith are stated to be X-Y-Z, they must be being observed by each and every Muslim. The fact there would be unrelenting jihad everywhere right now if YOU point of view was true is simply immaterial to you. It’s not happening, therefore it’s all ‘stealth jihad,’ and the Muslims here in the U.S. are waiting for their ultimate tactical advantage.

      As for your bizarre rationale for why women and children are used as suicide bombers, it’s because, sadly, they’re less suspicious than an adult male or a teenage male bomber. As to your claim about Palestinian suicide bombers target women and children, I haven’t seen that’s an accurate portrayal of the targeting in most cases for Palestinian bombers. The Palestinians are trying for whatever civilian targets they can when they target restaurants and so on. There are few true women and children instances of targeting schools and so on by Palestinians. There are rare cases in other jihads where targets are chosen like that Beslan school massacre by Chechen separatists. There have been children lost to bombs of civilian areas but I’d like a list of specific school bombings if that’s your claim — that Palestinians target schools and playgrounds and women and children.

        I see so many Muslims every day going about their daily business and it’s pretty tough to tell they’re all waging jihad each and every day, 24/7/365.

        Two things: You don’t see Muslims every day, first of all, and why would Muslims do anything to tip you or anybody else off on the reason why they are over here? Do you think they are all as mentally incompetent as you are? Apparently so!

        The reality is for the vast majority of them already over here they don’t have to do anything else, as just being here supports mass Muslim infiltration of our society and eventual demographic conquest, i.e., non-violent stealth and deceptive jihad. The more intelligent and educated ones out there, of course, will inevitably infiltrate our institutions, our government, and our news media, and they will claim that all the Muslim violence that is occurring around the world doesn’t have anything whatsoever to do with Islam.

        Indeed, the process of demographic conquest is a slow slog that requires years and years of patience, and just like clockwork as the percentage of Muslim migrants that make up the total population slowly rises, they will inevitably become more and more bolder and aggressive and less and less concerned about infidels figuring out the reason why they are over here.

        Once they have reached the majority it’s all over with, the game is over, as they will impose Sharia, i.e., Islamic totalitarian law, and render the infidels into harsh and degrading dhimmitude, and all you have to do to see how the dhimmis will inevitably be treated, is look to how the ones living throughout the Islamic totalitarian world today are treated, as they are raped, kidnapped, and murdered on a pretty regular and routine basis, and their places of worship are also destroyed.

        As a matter of fact, in the second half of this century, unless something very drastic happens, several Euroloon countries in Europe will inevitably become Muslim majority countries through non-violent stealth and deceptive jihad, i.e., demographic conquest.

        Most Muslims don’t wage jihad, don’t get involved in any way w/jihad.

        Actually, all mainstream orthodox Muslims in the world are jihadists in one form or another, either violent or non-violent, as Islam is by far more an extremely rabid form of totalitarianism that seeks to make itself supreme throughout the world than it is a so-called religion. Thus, just like in the old Communist Soviet Union where non-conformers were sent to the Soviet gulags, in Islam non-conformers are simply executed for either apostasy or blasphemy.

        Furthermore, the reason Muslims primarily target and murder innocent civilian non-combatants in cold-blood doesn’t have anything to do with terrorism. Instead, it is because it is proscribed for them, per the dictate of Sharia, which again is Islamic totalitarian law, and because murdering innocent civilian non-combatants in cold blood is the weak underbelly of the infidel world.

        Indeed, you can choose to continue living in la, la land if you want, it’s no hair off my back. I could care less.

        Why is that? Because there are other demands in life than waging jihad. it might be incumbent upon every Muslim to wage jihad. But there are slackers in the Muslim world just like there are culturally religious slackers in the Christian world

        You’re right. However, the slackers in the Islamic totalitarian world, as opposed to the slackers living in the infidel world, are all executed again for either apostasy or blasphemy.

        Do you see every Christian observing fast days and Lenten observances even though they’re far less onerous than those involved w/Ramadan? That slackerhood is certainly true for Catholics and Jews and Protestants so why don’t you believe that’s true for Muslims?

        Only a true mental incompetent is dumb enough to stupidly morally equate Christians and Jews with Muslims. Not to mention, that unlike Islam, Christianity and Judaism are true faith-based religions that unlike Islam doesn’t execute all apostates and all blasphemers. Indeed, when God dished out the brains, he really gave you the short end of the stick. Too bad.

        Because you’re someone whose focus is solely on a fraction of the behavior of the world’s Muslim communities.

        So just like GWB, the self-hating Left, and Ron Paul kooks, you are claiming that only a tiny minority of Muslims, as opposed to the vast overwhelming majority of Muslims, are radicals and extremists perpetrating terrorism and only in response to poverty and despair, greedy American imperialism, America’s interventionist foreign policies, and harsh Israeli policies? Despite all the evidence to the contrary.

        Look if you want to deny the obvious because the obvious is too distasteful for you, then so be it go right ahead. I mean I could care less, as I already know you are a flake and more than just a little unhinged.

        Yet, because the tenets of the faith are stated to be X-Y-Z, they must be being observed by each and every Muslim.

        According to Sharia, which all Muslims totally, completely, and unconditionally submit to under the penalties of death for apostasy and death for blasphemy, the infamous sword verses of the Koran, which were some of the very last verses issued by Muhammad shortly before his death, and the doctrine of abrogation, which is universally accepted throughout the Islamic totalitarian world and which holds that the latter issued verses of the Koran, i.e., those issued later on in Muhammad’s career, abrogate, override, supersede, and replace all earlier issued verses of the Koran in which they conflict with, all Muslims are obligated to wage jihad in one form or another, either violently or non-violently, in the cause of Allah to ultimately make Islam supreme, and because Islam is a so-called religion that executes all apostates and all blasphemers, all mainstream orthodox Muslims in the world are jihadists in one form or another. Otherwise, they are executed for apostasy and blasphemer.

        Hey, don’t look at me, I didn’t create Islam. That evil barbarian dude, Muhammad, did. It’s not my fault you don’t like the message, I’m just the messenger. So don’t shoot the messenger.

        The fact there would be unrelenting jihad everywhere right now if YOU point of view was true is simply immaterial to you.

        There is, as non-violent stealth and deceptive jihad relative to violent varieties of jihad is astronomically far more prevalent, and just because you have been oblivious of it, doesn’t mean there isn’t unrelenting jihad being waged all around the world.

        As for the rest of your garbage, it is just waste of my time.

Palestinians are very much like a prisoner with tight ropes around his body , and they tell him to challenge another free swimmer in the sea.But make no mistake despair is totally omitted from our dictionary.We are coming ,just wait.

        It wouldn’t matter what you had, you would still target and kill children. Once a coward always a coward. Palestinians made their own bed, no one else. If you are coming, bring it on.

    “The Jihadists offer Muslim children to Moloch as suicide bombers and human shields.”

    Well put.

    Islamic values…the values of a failed culture.

    This is why Israel should just stop negotiating with the Muslims. What can possibly come of negotiations with people who worship death?

        Hi,My name is Sanabel.A sheik followed me yesterday and tried
        to kill me by raping me over and over again. I am in hospital now lying
        between life and death ..You will not hear about me in your media because I
        am a victim of Islamofascism – and the media always down plays terrorism.

        This looks like Al Jazeera propaganda (stealth jihad) again.

      Hahahahaha! If only that story were true, pig boy! You animals lie like children. An eight year old Westerner is more sophisticated than any adult islamopithecine on the planet. You monkeys couldn’t even feed and clothe yourselves without Israel and the West, much less build a civilization – something you will never do. Go throw some rocks at your ugly women and rape your favorite goat. Leave running the world to us.

    Some palestinians children have rebuild 3 times their family environment, 3 times they have lost everything because of the zionist… I’ve see a real 12yo palestinian, said that, and also said that she was so upset that she can’t trust life anymore… she also said that she would have hold bomd and suicide herself, if this act can make people realize the situation in her country. Palestinians children have nothing to loose, they know it, and zionist know they have killed their futures.
