    Month-old child injured during Israeli raid in Kafr QaddumQALQILIYA

    (Ma'an) -- "A 1-month-old child from the northern West Bank village of Kafr Qaddum was seriously hurt after Israeli forces fired tear gas at his family's home on Saturday night."

    A spokesperson for the village's popular resistance committee Murad Ishteiwi told Ma'an that four Israeli military jeeps and a bulldozer stormed the village east of Qalqiliya overnight. The Israeli forces fired tear gas haphazardly at houses during the raid, he said."

    The article reports that as a result of the excessive use of tear gas, a month-old child named Khalid Majid Jumaa began to choke and vomit from the tear gas.

    What happened to the baby? According to the article, Jumaa received first aid immediately in his village but then he had to be evacuated to Darwish Nazzal hospital in Qalqiliya after the severity of his injuries were realized.

    If there are any updates on the babys condition, I will post what I learn.

    And where does the tear gas come from, that Israel uses to attack babies with?

    PHOTOS: This tear gas brought to you by the U.S.A.

    "On the same day that Bethlehem&#8217;s minister of tourism noted that the US government provided $400,000 to decorate the city for Christmas, local activists brought a few more US-sponsored ornaments to show to visitors in this West Bank town at the height of its tourist season. The activists delivered used tear gas grenades &#8212;*that had been fired by Israeli forces at Palestinian youth less than two kilometers away in Aida Refugee Camp that same day &#8212;*and hung them on a tree in Manger Square. One activist from Aida Camp was arrested for his participation in the action by Palestinian police, but released after a few hours."

    What kind of a society uses children as shields in order to achieve temporary propaganda advantage?

    Sherri - you only cut and pasted a portion of the article.

    So could it be that, as we see so often, "Palestinian" arabs create the problems they later whine about?

    What kind of society knows it's a child shield and shoots anyway because they think they can argue their way out of it?

    It was Israel's raid. It is their responsibility.

    But I agree, the palis need to quit using children as shields not only because it is despicable but also because the jew/israelis/zionists don't give a shit anyway.

    They shoot first and ask for child body counts later...

    Then have a party when it hits the over/under.
