DID YOU KNOW? Israel is the only country in the world that automatically prosecutes CHILDREN in military court! Since 2000, at least 8.000 Palestinian children have been arrested and prosecuted in an Israeli military detention system notorious for the systematic ill-treatment and torture of Palestinian children.
Several hours after their arrest, children arrive at an interrogation and detention center alone, sleep deprived and often scared. Interrogations include a variety of verbal abuse, threats and physical violence that ultimately result in a confession. Blindfolded, cuffed, no parents, no lawyers, no trial, no child’s rights, nothing.
This has to stop! As a member of the United Nations Israel must act in compliance with the United Nation Convention for the rights of a child as stated in the convention: Convention on the Rights of the Child Adopted and opened for signature, ratification and accession by General Assembly resolution 44/25 of 20 November 1989.

Please take a moment to watch this brutal video of 13 year old Admad, shot in the neck by Israeli Defense Forces, as he lay bleeding on the ground, while Zionist settlers chant “die you son of a whore, die.” Where is humanity!
Ahmad survived his wounds, and is now imprisoned in Israeli jails, awaiting trial for a crime that cannot be proven with any type of physical evidence. Watch this video of the Israeli police interrogation and psychological torture of 13 year old #AhmadManasrah.
As we see clear violations of international law, violations of the rights of the child, and injustices committed by Israeli authorities, we decided to launch a global campaign for Ahmad Manasrah’s freedom: Free Ahmad Manasrah Campaign.
The campaign’s objectives are to work for his immediate release without postponing trial, and Ahmad’s return to his family without condemnation.
