"Israeli lawmakers approved jailing children as young as 12 convicted of 'terrorist offences' in the wake of repeated attacks by young Palestinians, parliament said on Wednesday. 'The 'Youth Bill,' which will allow the authorities to imprison a minor convicted of serious crimes such as murder, attempted murder or manslaughter even if he or she is under the age of 14, passed its second and third readings ... Tuesday night,' an English-language statement said. It added that the seriousness of attacks in recent months 'demands a more aggressive approach, including toward minors.' ... Violence in the Palestinian territories and Israel since October has killed at least 218 Palestinians, 34 Israelis, two Americans, an Eritrean and a Sudanese, according to an AFP count." [editor's note: No more barbaric than the US, which only stopped executing kids in 2005, and where prosecutors running for higher office routinely pull the old "try them as adults so I look tough on crime" stunt - TLK] (08/03/16)
