I also came upon a post and discussion thread on The post was disheartening, setting up a simplistic, cynical analogy implicating both Arab and Israeli children as sick little killers. I understood Schwarz's intent differently here. There is (or was, it's been a while for me) a trope on LGF called "Palestinian child abuse" or something like that. It involves showing photos -- and sadly, apparently authentic ones -- of West Bank, Gaza, etc. kids dressed in suicide bomber mockups, or in military garb, etc. I think Schwarz was simply pointing out that the impulse to indoctrinate kids with hatred and use them for propaganda purposes is not as one-sided as certain wingnut propaganda has implied.
