Commenting on the tensions between Israelis and Arabs, the dispute over new housing in East Jerusalem, and how the liberal media cover this issue, conservative leader Mark Levin asked his television audience to name one -- just one -- Israeli who has strapped bombs on their children and sent them into a Palestinan community to blow people up. "There isn't one," he said, and added that there isn't one Christian in the region who engages in such terrorism.

In a clip from LevinTV posted on Jan. 3, Levin said, “Tell me, can you name one Israeli who straps bombs on their children and sends them into a Palestinian community to blow themselves up? Can you name one? Can you name one? There isn’t one."

"And yet, if you Google, there’s plenty of Palestinians who do exactly that," he said.

He continued, "More broadly Arabs, more broadly Muslims. Not all, obviously, but more than not when it comes to comparing them to Israelis."

Levin further said, "Can you name one Christian in the Middle East who does that? Just name one!”

It is well-documented that radical Palestinian groups, opposed to the state of Israel, use children as suicide bombers to attack Israeli civilians and military. As Amnesty International has reported, "Palestinian armed groups have repeatedly shown total disregard for the most fundamental human rights, notably the right to life, by deliberately targeting Israeli civilians and by using Palestinian children in armed attacks.

"Children are susceptible to recruitment by manipulation or may be driven to join armed groups for a variety of reasons, including a desire to avenge relatives or friends killed by the Israeli army."

Below is a news clip from Israeli TV 2 about a 14-year-old Palestinian suicide bomber who changed his mind at the last minute, and was able to remove his suicide bomb vest with the aid of the Israeli Defense Forces. 

Mark Levin,  who served in the Reagan Administration's Justice Department, hosts a popular nationally syndicated talk radio show, hosts LevinTV, and is the editor of Conservative Review. Also, he is the author of several best selling books, including Liberty and Tyranny: A Conservative Manifesto, The Liberty Amendments, and Plunder and Deceit.
