Kids Are So Cute

Notice the text of the "oath board" that these cute little kids "signed:"

Jordanian children show their ink-stained fingers after leaving their fingerprints on an oath board in a rally in Amman October 10, 2009. The rally was held to express solidarity with Palestinians in Jerusalem because of the clashes with Israeli police at al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem in late September. The placard on the oath board reads, "We, the children of Jordan, are committed to the children of Palestine, defenders of Palestine and the mortars of Palestine, to stand steadfast in the defence of al-Aqsa Mosque until martyrdom or liberation, and God (Allah) is our witness". REUTERS/Muhammad Hamed (JORDAN POLITICS CONFLICT)

Until martyrdom? One wonders where the children of Palestine get such crazy ideas.

And if the parents and schoolteachers that put these tiny little kids up to this televised publicity stunt told them what "martyrdom" really meant.

Brian, did you also notice this unique phrasing?

are committed to the children of Palestine, defenders of Palestine and the mortars of Palestine

They are committing themselves to Palestinian mortars?

 

Poor beautiful child subject to so many horrors and abuses (let alone because she is a girl)
