(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL #295 - War Crimes: Let's go Zenfants ... ! (fr, it, pt)[machine translation]

Date Mon, 24 Jun 2019 08:02:28 +0300

The Syrian conflict and the repression of Bashar al-Assad kill thousands of people. Children are the collateral victims. While French opinion is divided, should we let the children of jihadists die ? All of you, denounce this ignominy! ---- According to a study for Le Figaro , to the question about the fate of French jihadist children in Iraq and Syria, 67% of respondents want to let jihadist children in Iraq and Syria to take care of them rather than to do the utmost to repatriate them. Among the "walkers", they are 63% to think it and 78% among the LR! ---- Should we be satisfied that 58% of Socialists and 50% of those in the IF want the French authorities to do their utmost for the return of jihadist children in France? Have they all forgotten the regimes in these countries?

The regime of Bashar al-Assad, since March 2011, has 106 390 civilians killed including 19 811 children and 12 513 women. In seven years, nearly 20,000 children have died in the Syrian conflict, according to the OSDH (Syrian Observatory for Human Rights).

The United Nations Children's Fund (Unicef) reports a 50% increase in the number of children killed in 2017 compared to the previous year. Children represent 20% of the civilian victims of this offensive, "the war turns children into wrecks" according to Unicef. Have we forgotten those "pale and unconscious children, without visible wounds, with dilated pupils?(The express of August 2, 2017).

On April 4, 2017, the inhabitants of Khan Cheikhoun, wake up under the effect of a powerful neurotoxic gas: 97 killed. On August 21, 2013, chemical weapons massacre against the eastern neighborhoods of Damascus: more than 1,400 dead, including 426 children. In both cases, presence of sarin gas.

"The Middle East is a battlefield where the worst atrocities are committed, Bashar al-Assad is the political leader who reached records," said Denis Bauchard, advisor to the French Institute of International Relations.

So let's leave these kids
Currently just over 100 French children were arbitrarily detained in camps ... From the 1 stNovember 2018 29 children (not all French) died because of Syrian cold, 70% of children under 6 years.

Can we be satisfied with this situation and abandon them there? Should we recall that at the end of the Second World War, the problem of children maltreated by the war arose and that "the decisive factor for France to accept to take over the abandoned child is his French descent" .

These children have or had French parents and in this case a reminder of the law should be enough to stop the ignominy: "A child (whether born in France or abroad) is French by birth, it is that is to say by descent, if at least one of his parents is French ... If the parent loses French nationality, while his child is of age, this does not affect the nationality of the child ."

Still, 42% of socialists and 50% of those in the IF are ready not to rescue them! It hurts Internationalism.
