"What do you want to be when you grow up?"

The American child answers with "fireman" or "teacher" or "swimming coach" or whatever.
The Muslim child answers with "future suicide."

According to Ryan R. Jones of AHN, "Hezbollah has begun replenishing its ranks after more than a month of war with Israel by recruiting the children of its fallen fighters, according to the Egyptian weekly Roz Al-Yusuf."

The newspaper reported that in recent weeks Hezbollah has organized more than 2,000 children aged 10-15 into armed militias. The Mahdi Boy Scouts, a Hezbollah-affiliated youth movement, has been tasked with training the youngsters to sacrifice their lives attacking Israel.
