Fanaticism Has a Price

Our recent blog, the ““>Journal of Palestine Studies (Vol.41, no.4—Summer, 2012) reported that in the building of the tunnels that have been so much in the news of late,  

…nothing was done to impede the use of children in the tunnels, where, much as in Victorian coal mines, they are prized for their nimble bodies. At least 160 children have been killed in the tunnel, according to Hamas officials.

If Hamas officials own up to 160 child deaths, one can only imagine what the real numbers are. Fanaticism and absolutist ideology have a price—even your own kin will be their victims.
