PARIS (JTA) — U.S. first lady Laura Bush criticized child suicide bombers, citing Palestinian attacks on Israelis.

"Every parent, every teacher, every leader has a responsibility to condemn the terrible tragedy of children blowing themselves up to kill others," Bush said Tuesday in Paris, where she addressed a forum of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development. "A lasting victory in the war against terror depends on educating the world's children, because educated children are much more likely to embrace the values that defeat terror."
