Calling Israeli detention of Palestinian kids as young as 10 "state-sponsored child abuse," Rep. Betty McCollum (D-MN) has introduced a bill to ban Israel from using any of its bloody billions in U.S. "aid" to pay for "a gross human rights violation against children.” The bill, which would also fund treatment for kids, was welcomed by rights advocates; for former child prisoner Ahed Tamimi, it offers "Palestinian kids and our families a glimmer of hope (after) so many decades of darkness."
"It is clear that detaining and prosecuting Palestinian children in Israeli military courts has little to do with justice," says Brad Parker of Defense for Children International Palestine
