According to a report in today's Jerusalem Post,

Mohammed Naefeh, a senior Fatah member believed to be the mastermind of the Kibbutz Metzer attack as well as a string of other terrorist attacks has surrended to IDF troops ...

Naifeh took over from Raed Karmi who was killed by Israeli security forces in January this year and in June received the sum of $20,000.00 directly from Palestinian Authority Chairman Yasser Arafat to fund Tanzim operations. The money is believed to have come from donations given to the PA by the European Union. According to a Human Rights Watch report the European Union pays out a 5% fee attached to PA salaries which is in fact used to fund Fatah terrorist operations.

The information is based on documents seized from Arafat's Mukata compound in Ramallah earlier in the year.

Naifeh himself is also believed to have been in contact with a number of EU officials who attempted to persuade Fatah officials to halt its terrorist activities against Israel.

"Attempted to persuade" is insufficient. Save the Children demands that the EU cease funding to organisations that arrange and carry out the deliberate murder of children.

Contact Chris Patten and ask what he is doing to prevent funding to child murderers.

Save the Children demands that the UN High Commissioner on Human Rights, Sergio Vieira de Mello, appoint a committee to investigate the deliberate targeting of children by Palestinian terror organisations. Such activity is a War Crime under the Geneva Convention.

The High Commissioner's address is: OHCHR-UNOG, 8-14 Avenue de la Paix, 1211 Geneva 10, Switzerland.

His telephone number in Geneva is (41-22) 917-9000.

His fax number is (41-22) 917 9010.

Every reader and every blogger should phone him up and ask him when he is going to investigate this war crime against children.
