Police Dressed as Arabs Incite Provocation in Jewish Village

Last week, three policemen dressed as Arabs arrived at the Givat Ronen settlement in Samaria, in an attempt to provoke the residents, KR8 reports.

The local security coordinator tried to alert the Army, but his calls were not answered.

Eventually, the “Arabs” started cursing the local Jewish residents, at which point their Arabic vocabulary and pronunciation gave them away.

Apparently, that pesky Israeli accent is hard to lose not just in English…

This is the second time police have attempted to draw Jewish settlers into a brawl with fake Arabs. In a similar attempt, in July, 2012, a brawl erupted between three policemen dressed as Arabs and local residents at the Har Sinai farm near Susia, also in Samaria. The “Arabs” used tasers and tear gas against the locals, who were armed with baseball bats. Moments later, police who had been waiting in ambush came out and arrested the residents.

Back then, this action was condemned as representing a law enforcement view that sees Israeli Jews as the enemy.

In Givat Ronen, according to KR8, the situation is even more volatile, since a herd of goats belonging to residents was stolen by Arabs a few months ago and calls to police and the army were ignored.

Internal Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitch has devoted much of his attention to “controlling” Jewish communities “with a high concentration of extreme rightists,” dubbing them “terror organizations.”

“There is a legal difference,” Aharonovitch said last year, “but I claim that in settlements such as Bat Ayin, where there are concentrations of extreme rightists – [these places] should, for all intents and purposes, be considered terror organizations.”

And so, convinced that Jewish settlements are a hotbed of terrorism, Israel’s internal security minister appears to have re-ignited his campaign to trap and criminalize Jews—never mind that these Jews happen to be victims of Arab crimes.

Is this approach to law enforcement a sign of things to come, as Israeli negotiators are trotting down the slope to “peace?”

    Quite simple, either Netanyahu fires that antizionist dude, or no one from Judea-Samaria will vote for Bibi next time. The only thing that will be achieved, is that, next time they'll really vote for an "extreme rightist" nationalist party.

  2. that is impressive, what else they can do ?
    but they made a stupid mistake, being arab “inciting provocation’ is not true , rather instead they should b fighting with each other as well :)

  3. Impressive, as a matter of fact, is seeing that arabs like to read The Jewish Press. I found it quite nice.

  4. Chaiya Eitan says:

    This is outrageous!! The police are supposed to protect – not provoke!! Who is giving the orders to do this????

  5. The only, ONLY, excuse for the police to dress as Arabs is to catch Arab terrorist and criminals…outrageous! does not cover what this man has and is doing! Israel is for Jews and is Jewish…as for the others: "They must go!"

  6. all of this corrupt nonsense is because bibi gives these leftests free reign up to a point as long as they leave him alone.his first rip as a head of state taught him he must give the devil his due or the media will remove him from office.very sad.

    "In a similar attempt, in July, 2012, a brawl erupted between three policemen dressed as Arabs and local residents at the Har Sinai farm near Susia, also in Samaria." *Correction* The Har Sinai Farm near Susia is in the Hills of Yehuda, which is between Chevron and Be'ev Sheva

  9. I have No words. Only: Yitzhak Aharonovitch: go home

  10. The State of Israel must annex the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, because it is written in the Torah, in Numbers 33:50-53 and Deuteronomy 1:8 and 30:5, that God commanded Israel to possess the Land of Canaan, that is the Land of Israel, that includes all the Palestine. And the State of Israel must not give Israeli citizenship to the Arabs, because Israel is a Jewish state, so that only Jews can be citizens of Israel. This is not racism, because any person, of any race or ethnicity, can convert to Judaism.
    The State of Israel must expel the Arabs from its territory, because it is written in the Torah, in Bamidbar (Numbers) 33:52, that God commanded Israel to expel the other inhabitants of the Land of Canaan, which is the Land of Israel, which includes all the Palestine. The Arabs invaded the Land of Israel in the year 635 CE, so that they are invaders, and must leave Israel, and return to their own land, which is Arabia. This is not racism, because any person, of any race or ethnicity, can convert to Judaism.

    Yes its about time that the "Jewish State" of Israel finally elects a Religious "Jewish" leader, who will run the "Jewish" state according to "Jewish" law not the law of "money" and "power" as Bibi and all the others have done, they are just as guilty as the enemy and have blood on their hands too. Its too bad that the politicians did not heed the instructions of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, who gave them the solutions for dealing with this, its also too bad that many voices of the Rebbe's representatives in Israel with influential positioning are silent because they are afraid of loosing their government funding, by the way Bibi, your nice smile and slick speeches in your smooth English, like the one you made at the UN are all nice hot air and mount to a hill of beans, because when it comes down to the crunch, you buckle like the rest of the wimps. I have a feeling that someone like Billy Graham would do a better job at ensuring the safety of the Jews in Israel than those running it until now. Just think about the poor girl who came home to find her entire family murdered in cold blood recently, how could you! you are sicker than sick, as far as this Jerk Ahronovitch is concerns, all i can say is he reminds me of the heimishe informers from Hitler's times.

  12. a Chinese says:

    Jews must help Jews. Because no other will help you. Be united as one, and keep Israel for the children of Jacob only. G-D blesses you all

    This is entrapment. Totally immoral and illegal.
