The different legal systems under which Israelis and Palestinians are tried apply to children as well. As +972 has consistently documented, Palestinian children arrested by the Israeli army are treated by the military court system as “potential terrorists.” The visual below demonstrates what would happen should two 12-year-old boys, one Israeli and one Palestinian, get arrested for fighting. One would swiftly be brought before a judge, given access to a lawyer, tried and spared jail time. The other could face two years in jail without trial.

President Obama shakes hands with a man wearing a Romney hat during a ceremony at the Pentagon Memorial, Sept. 11, 2012.
The President sees your partisan ploy and raises you one bipartisan handshake.
“Hey, I’m thinking that maybe now wearing my campaign baseball hat and my campaign shirt to a 9/11 memorial ceremony was maybe a bad idea. Oh geez, I’m so embarrassed. This is a national day of unity, not a time to pick partisan fights. Gosh, where can I stash this stuff? Did I wear my backpack today? Oh shit, I forgot to wear my backpack. Damn. This was a stupid, stupid idea. Maybe if I wear my sunglasses no one will recognize m — oh shit, I think the President is walking this way. Oh my God, what am I doing here! I’m such a fool, a fool I tell ya! President Obama is walking right toward me! What should I do, what should I do? What would Mitt do? WHAT WOULD RONALD REAGAN DO! OMG THE PRESIDENT IS REACHING OUT TO SHAKE MY HAND, THIS IS THE WORST, THE WORST, I’M SUCH A DUMBASS!!!!
“Oh. He’s a human being. He’s got a firm handshake and is a complete gentleman. I’m rather enjoying this moment. Why was I acting a fool just now? What a good person you are, sir. I’m proud you’re my President. But please don’t ask about the hat.”
Today, I covered a 9/11 memorial ceremony in which the speaker said that the “liberal media” neglects to remind people that the hijackers were “Islamic extremists.”
Guess what language I didn’t include in my story?
What are you watching?
Some shit with a bunch of white people. Oh look, they found a black person! Now they've gotta zoom in on her.
Are you watching the RNC?
Yes. I just want to watch football but all 15 channels have this shit on. I just want to see dudes tackle each other.
