MK Ben Ari: Fire Officer who Ordered Police to Kill Migron Youths (Video)

National Union MK Michael Ben Ari sent an urgent letter to Internal Security Minister Yizhak Aharonivich, following the publication of pictures showing a police Special Patrol Force officer ordering his subordinates to kill a group of youths who had climbed a rooftop in Ramat Migron during its evacuation earlier this week, and were refusing to be transferred.

During the segment, the cops repeat threats like: “You are dead!” as the boys are trying to grab their ladder to prevent them from climbing up to the rooftop. The death threats repeat time and again. It’s clear that the phrases are being used more to mean severe bodily harm than actual death, but the abundant use of death and killing as threats is quite jarring, especially when they are expressed at teenagers.

MK Ben Ari wrote: “I’m writing you in regard to severe images that reached my office which document the removal of youths on Sept. 2, 2012, who refused to be removed. May I point your attention to [the] video in which an officer is heard giving the clear order to his subordinates to bring them down and to kill them.

“Moments later the special force police are seen leaping at the rooftop and the sounds of crying and weeping are heard from the youths, out of camera range.”

According to MK Ben Ari, “An officer who gives a command to kill demonstrators, even if they annoy him very severely, does not belong in Israel’s police force, and I believe you will do well to relieve him of duty and keep him away from contact with civilians even before any legal steps are taken.”

The confrontation segment begins at minute 12:06

    That office should not only be fired but also prosecuted for incitement to murder.

    That officer should not only be fired but also prosecuted for incitement to murder unarmed civilians.

    video pulled…too incriminating. the real black side of the black shirts crowd in israel. they will no doubt become mercenarys for any country after they become ejected from israel.

  4. Ilan Rubin says:

    Why does the Israeli government wast time on this nonsense. Don't tell me it is a country of law and order. We just saw it was not. If not for the cameras those five children would have been dead.

  5. Chaiya Eitan says:

    This police officer should be kicked out of the police force and put on trial!

  6. Anonymous says:

    I agree that the officer was way out-of-line & should be reprimanded and perhaps demoted. But he didn't mean "kill them" literally, & the police he commanded understood that. He meant "hurt them", & that's what was done, perhaps a little bit too well. Let's fight this sort of thing, but let's keep things in perspective as well.

  7. I was able to access video on Sept.8 so it may have just been a technical problem.

    The originally link was taken down. We put up a new link.
