Sort of Like Teaching a Monkey to Dance

After a while the monkey gets wise and stops performing - even if you shock them. 

Filling their little heads with fables and hate is bad enough whjen they are just little "puppies", but forcing them to play the game and strap on the suicide bomb or save their virginity is just a horrible thing to force upon someone to whom you are supposed to love unconditionally and protect from the evils of the world.

yes yes yes.

What an excellent metaphor. Too bad the fanatical perpetrators don't see it that way.
