Every year on the Jewish holiday of Purim, settlers of Hebron celebrate with a costume parade. Such parades take place in many Israeli cities on Purim, but the one in Hebron is unlike anything you can imagine. Violence is a tradition during the parade in Hebron. Security forces are on alert; hundreds of soldiers are sent to secure the event; Palestinians are placed under curfew; drunken settlers in the streets throw stones and glass bottles; and children sing racist songs. Two years ago, settlers sent their children to sing "Death to Arabs" and "Baruch is the man" next to Palestinian homes. They were referring to Baruch Goldstein, who shot and killed 29 Palestinians in the Tomb of the Patriarchs in the 1990s. Settlers even tried to break into a kindergarten. A kindergarten, with children under the age of six. That Purim was dedicated to Elor Azaria, a soldier who shot and killed a terrorist who lay neutralized on the ground. Last year, settlers dedicated Purim to Azaria again. But that's not unusual. Not in Hebron. Here's one example from a soldier's testimony: "They threw glass bottles for hours at the (Palestinian) house. There were only bars on the windows... All the broken glass fell inside, babies were crying from within the house and all the children were peeping out and bottles were flying at their faces... And we tried to stop them, but as a soldier, you're not a policeman. There was nothing we could have done." (To read the full testimony: https://goo.gl/aMJ3ki) When we returned from our deployment in Hebron, we suddenly realized that we pay for this demonstration of hatred with our own tax money, courtesy of Education Minister Naftali Bennett. This is the same minister who has been trying to exploit his authority for three years by threatening educators and advancing rotten legislation intended to prevent soldiers from telling future recruits about the missions they will be sent to carry out. That's how it is with Bennett and soldiers: You're great so long as you're risking your life for the country, but don't you dare open your mouth to talk about how you've secured hateful events for Kahanists. In Israel, Purim is a cute holiday, with kids in costumes and alcohol in the evening. In Hebron, Purim is first and foremost a Kahanistic celebration of hatred and violence. This, too, is what occupation looks like. (Photo: Activestills)

At any given moment, some 270 Palestinian youth are held in Israeli prisons. About half of them are arrested at home in the middle of the night. The vast majority of arrests take place in villages close to settlements. Haaretz newspaper published a comprehensive report by Netta Ahituv on child detention in the occupied territories. Alongside important organizations like B'Tselem בצלם and Parents Against Child Detention הורים נגד מעצרי ילדים, as the soldiers sent to carry out this kind of arrests, we were also asked to share our angle in the article. Yet, the bulk of the article consists of harsh testimonies from the children themselves, who at the ages of 11, 13, or 15, found themselves in prison. Based on the hundreds of soldiers' testimonies that we collected, it seems like when it come to operational activities, the army does not distinguish between children and adults . Children, even at very young ages, are objected to night arrests, inspections at checkpoints, and violence, to the same degree as adults. One of our testifiers recounted how he thought of his little brother upon detaining a child in a room full of Sponge-Bob posters; another soldier described how the mother of a boy whom he had come to detain had sprawled out on the floor, pleading, as her son watched. Arbitrary use of violence is the only means of maintaining control over a civilian population, and it is far more cruel when directed toward young children.

Guy Domb came to listen to our Coordinator of Jewish Diaspora, Frima Bubis (Merphie), at Manchester University, where he goes. Later he was surprised to read an article by Rafi Bloom of North West Friends of Israel. Under the headline "The Enemy From Within," no less, Bloom scatters a mixture of mistakes, lies and defamation. But such lies, says Domb, aren't going to stop Jewish youth from learning about the occupation: "complex issues that impact the region, including the occupation. And while young people engage in difficult conversations about the occupation because they want it to end, it seems Bloom and his colleagues are more interested in bullying us into silence, so our conversations about the occupation will end instead."
