B’nai B’rith International called on the United Nations Commission on Human Rights to prevent children from becoming terrorists. “It is deplorable to see the manipulation of children through the use of textbooks, TV programs, cartoons, and comic strips,” said the group’s president, Joel Kaplan. B’nai B’rith next week will ask the commission, which is in the midst of a six-week session in Geneva, to appoint a rapporteur to investigate and report on nations that teach children to hate and become terrorists.
