No Mourning for “Palestinian” Israeli

Palestinian organizations trumpet every death at the hands of the IDF. Where are they for Mohammed Karake?

It has been nearly eight hours since the shooting death of Mohammed Karake, a 13-year-old Israeli citizen of “Palestinian” descent, but as of this writing no prominent Palestinian “support” organization has condemned the murder.

For instance, Defence for Children International – Palestine Section (the organization that claimed to have filmed the staged “killing” of two Palestinians during Nakba Day riots last month) features seven news items on its homepage, including stories about the 15-year-old shot killed “as Israeli forces raid West Bank (did we mention the Palestinian was throwing rocks and participating in a violent protest?), and noting that the boy was the sixth Palestinian child to be killed by Israeli forces since the start of the year.

To be fair, the website does mention the abduction of Eyal Yifrah, Gil-Ad Shayer and Naftali Frenkel, but only as a throwaway line after noting that “the Israeli military continued to use excessive force against civilians in the search for three Israeli teens.”

Another organization, the Christian Peacemaker Teams, a group of foreign nationals based in Hebron to “document crimes of the occupation” did give more prominent mention to the context of the current IDF sweep – “As the families of Gilad Shaar, Naftali Frenkel, and Eyal Yifrach languish in uncertainty, grieving the disappearance of their three young boys…” – but then continues to claim that “the world watches as their anguish is politically co-opted to provide a veil for indiscriminate Israeli military force imposed on the Palestinian communities in the West Bank.  The kidnappings also provide an opportunity for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to advance his right-wing agenda.

“Netanyahu and his ilk have hijacked the legitimate, raw emotional pain of the kidnapping catastrophe and transformed it into the political impetus to section off Hebron from the rest of the world, target the Palestinian Unity Government, deploy intimidation and systematic abuse as a measurement of collective punishment, and strategically empower the settler enterprise in the West Bank,” the group accuses.

And the list goes on. The International Solidarity Movement, the movement that spawned both Rachel Corrie and the Mike’s Place bombers, features reports on “One Palestinian killed, more than 25 injured, another on “Collective punishment in Palestinian,” and a “documentary” about “One month for school children in Hebron (complete with pics). There is also a video, of the infamous Pallywood production of the Palestinians “killed” by Israeli troops last month on Nakba Day.

But as of this writing, nearly eight hours after Mohammed Karake was killed by anti-tank fire over the Syrian border, no Palestinian, pro-Palestinian or “human rights” group has condemned the murder or expressed sympathies with the family.

Could it be related to the fact that the boy didn’t die at the hands of those nasty Jews?

  1. The "Peacemaker" team, the "Solidarity" movement: All must surely be blind and deaf to the intent of the Arabs. The only alternative is that they are rabidly anti-Jewish and anti-Israel. My money is on the second conclusion. How pathetically ignorant they are.

  2. Well, I'll try again. Either my computer is going crazy or this website is.
    Here is what I wrote earlier, for what it's worth:

    In war people die, its regrettable

  6. Lani Lowell says:

    plenty of Jewish citizens of The US and Israeli citizens have expressed sympathy for the loss of this child and the family.We hope this is enough to comfort the family,and as Israeli citizens they know now fully who their friends are.again, condolences.

  7. James Grush says:

    We don't want to read about insane accusations and lies of enemies.we shouldn't be wasting our emotions,time on mentally figesting their opinion regarding jews and Israel.we know well theirvtwosted immoral mindd.in arabic culture lying is not condemned,but rather praised.I wish our press would relate to the puvluc our strong convictions and ppsitionin this war between Truth and Lies.

  8. What??? It doesn't violate the human rights of the child killed BY the Palestinians? There was a time in the history of the US when a white man could kill an Indian in the town streets and never fear rebuke, let alone prosecution; the Indian could kill a white man for raping his wife or daughter, or sodomizing his son, or even be defending them in the process of the act, but if he even hit a white man or killed him, it was instant hanging, no court.

    Later in the history of the US, the same thing applied to the Blacks. They were not allowed to defend themselves or their families.

    You sound as though you expect the Israelis to sit back and do nothing when attacked. You are foolish in the extreme.

  9. Chaiya Eitan says:

    But they had a lot to say about the other Mohammed – the one who is currently in hiding because he expressed his love for Israel.

  10. Chaiya Eitan says:

    and when were you in Judea/Samaria (the correct terms) last? The people of Syria/Iraq would gladly exchange places with the Arabs of Judea/Samaria. If the Arabs there would stop their attacks on our civilians, then we would stop.

  11. Chaiya Eitan says:

    It was printed, Sheila. I see it below this posting.

  12. Jim Schuster: There is no such place as 'Palestine'. And if you are so interested in the violation of human rights of others, perhaps you should look at the violation of Arab on Arab, as well as Muslim on Muslim, and Muslim on Jews and Christians. Why do transparently anti-semitic ignoramus' always 'select' Israel without ever considering their tribal, barbaric hate-filled daily diet. It is the warping of the mentality of an entire society. You would do far better to help re-educate their children so that they can grow up educated and civilized!

  13. When I spoke of 'tribal barbaric hate-filled daily diet' I meant the Arabs, not the Jews! I have visited Judea and Samaria and heard the hatred spewed out by teachers and Imams. You, Jim Schuster are pouring more vile hatred into the overflowing pool of hatred. Think about it…
