Police Stop Palestinian Authority Prime Minister for Speeding

Israeli soldiers stopped a speeding car north of Ramallah Tuesday, and it turned out to be a vehicle driving Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Razi Hamdallah, who immediately turned the incident into a nasty political fight.

He reportedly called one soldier a “dog” and scorned him for standing in “occupied territory.”

His car and convoy had been stopped for crossing the solid white line and for other violations resulting from reckless driving  on Highway 60, the major artery connecting Jerusalem, Ofra , Beit El and other northern Jewish communities. It also bypasses Ramallah, which is connected with Highway by an “Arab only” road.

The IDF called the police to handle the situation, and then it was realized that the car was part of an official PA convoy, which usually travels with an Israeli police escort. The convoy and the IDF eventually parted company after a stalemate following Hamdallah’s demand for an apology and the IDF’s refusal.

The way the Bethlehem-based Ma’an News Agency reported the incident, “a group of settlers escorted by Israeli soldiers” stopped Hamdallah’s car and convoy, and Hamdallah alleged that the soldiers planned to assault him,

How he knew their plans is not known, but if the Palestinian Authority is smart, it will see the arrest as a divine sign that Mahmoud Abbas indeed is speeding too fast, politically, for his own good.

One Response to “Police Stop Palestinian Authority Prime Minister for Speeding”

  1. Jean Perles says:

    Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah was delayed this morning after an IDF officer spotted his convoy skirting white lanes and forcing other cars to deviate to the side of the road on Highway 60 near Ramallah.

    The IDF officer, together with another soldier with him, started to chase after the Palestinian Authority Prime Minister’s car, which was accompanied by two other cars and signaled them to stop. But the Palestinian Authority Prime Minister’s convoy didn’t follow the instructions and only after the IDF officer insisted did the convoy pull over. Then, the IDF officer was attacked, prompting him to call the police.

    This was not the end of the story. One of the Israeli policewomen who arrived at the scene was attacked by Palestinian security personnel, while the Palestinian Authority Prime Minister sat in his car and instructed his security forces to behave however they felt like. At one point, Hamdallah announced that he would not continue until the Israelis apologized to him.

    The Judea and Samaria District Police decided not to exacerbate the incident and since it was all documented, they kept the details of the Palestinian security guards involved in the incident and left without apologizing. The Palestinian Authority Prime Minister and his convoy continued on their way.

    The police are continuing to investigate the incident. They stressed that according to the procedures decided upon, the passage of the Palestinian Authority Prime Ministers or Presidents convoy on Israeli roads needs to be coordinated in advance. However, in this case, there was no coordination
