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