Human Rights Org. 'B'tsalmo' to the UN envoy: demanding that you meet with the children "who saw their father slaughtered with axes in the attack"

David Almagor, MivzakLive, December 11, 2022

Today (Sunday) the UN Special Representative for children's affairs, Mrs. Verginia Gamba, arrived in Israel, her purpose was to check if the IDF harms (sic) children. In a personal and poignant letter sent to her by Shai Glick, CEO of B'tsalmo, he initially congratulates her for coming to Israel but attacks her for meeting only with the Palestinian side and not with children and organizations.

The letter reads: "First of all, welcome to the State of Israel. The only democracy in the Middle East. The State of Israel and the Land of Israel is the vision of the fulfillment of the prophets in the Bible, a country of justice and light for the world, a country that, despite being small, always sends aid to every country in the world during a humanitarian crisis. I read that you came to check that the IDF soldiers are not harming innocent children, so it's not just that they are not harming, but the exact opposite."

It also reads that "Have you heard of hundreds of stones and Molotov cocktails being thrown against Jewish children? Have you heard or met the children of the Cohen family that a special bus in which they were traveling that was written on the bus 'a bus for transporting children' was hit by a live bomb on purpose and all their legs were amputated?

Will you meet the children of the family Habakkuk from Elad. These are children who saw their father slaughtered by axes in the street by two bloodthirsty terrorists for no reason, just because he is Jewish. Do you know what such sights do to children?"

In conclusion, it notes that: "And there are many more examples. Will you meet Tehila Fogel who, as a 12-year-old girl, returned home and saw her family slaughtered after bloodthirsty terrorists massacred them. To get the complete picture, I would appreciate it if you would contact me in which I can show you data about the number of attempts The vulnerability of Israeli children and why the IDF must protect them."
