Palestinian and Iraqi children get toy guns for presents

Bring them up in the way they should go and they will not depart from it.

I guess this is just normalizing violence and weapons in their society. I wonder how long we will wait until the news reports children being killed by nervous soldiers reacting to a weapon being pointed at them.

Mind you a toy RPG would be great in the playground.

Children traditionally receive money, clothes and toys at the start of the three-day holiday

Wow.
That was a normal toy for boys back when I was growing up. We played cops and robbers and cowboys and indians and stuff like that.

Somehow I don't think that is what they are doing. Jihadists and Jews, maybe?
