Teach Your Children Well

A Palestinian boy holds a machinegun as militant members of the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades brandish their weapons during a rally at the Al-Ein refugee camp near the West Bank city of Nablus September 30, 2005. Israeli forces killed two Palestinian gunmen and a teenager in the occupied West Bank on Friday, pressing ahead with raids against militants despite a halt to cross-border rocket attacks from the Gaza Strip. The week-long wave of violence has badly frayed a seven-month-old ceasefire and deflated hopes that Israel's Gaza pullout, completed on September 12, might soon open the way for a revival of peacemaking after five years of bloodshed.
