There's more to Israel than killing children

Israel incarcerates children too! This is on Reuters though Reuters disclaims it as unchecked by them:
Palestinian Layth Ghalib Bedwan, 14, was arrested and detained by the Israeli authorities on 28 August 2006. Since then, his family has waited anxiously for him to return home.

"His mother is crying all the time. I contacted all the children's rights organisations in the hope that they can do something to accelerate the release of my son, but all my efforts were in vain," said Ghalib Bedwan, 36, Layth's father.
Anthony Julius isn't quite up to speed on that one but then "incarceration libel" doesn't have the same ring to it as "blood libel."
