It is cute when Israeli children practice shooting

They should know where they come from (Photo: Alex Kolomoisky)

"Gush Etzion has become a hot destination in recent months for tourists seeking an Israeli experience like no other: The opportunity to pretend-shoot a terror operative. Residents of the nearby settlements, who run the site, offer day-trippers a chance to hear stories from the battleground, watch a simulated assassination of terrorists by guards, and fire weapons at the range."  If this picture was published about an Arab child, there would be an unending supply of articles in the Western press about how Arabs are teaching terror to their children.
