Palestinian boy says Israeli soldiers show restraint during the Intifada

Ahmad Zaghbar, Palestinian boy: "We saw the tank. We all attacked the tank. A soldier started shooting. There were soldiers who shot and those who didn't."
TV Host: "Are there soldiers who hesitate to shoot?"
Ahmad: "There are many soldiers who hesitate. A tank was there, when I carried the flag without fear. I thought I was going to be a Martyr. I cried 'Allah Akbar' and went on, but the shooting was not at me. It was at the flag."
Host: "How do you know [that the soldiers] hesitate?"
Ahmad: "There are some soldiers who feel that this boy is like his son. You can feel he has humanity. He has humanity."
