Israeli police are gearing up for another night of violence, following the arrest of six Jews in connection with the murder of 16-year-old Mohammed Abu Khdeir last week.

Riots have flared on-and-off all day in Jerusalem and the Galilee. Routes 70 and 65 have been partially closed, and about 200 Arab citizens of Israel attacked police with rocks and Molotov cocktails.  Eleven people were arrested, according to the Ynet website.

As of this writing, police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said affected areas were “relatively quiet,” but he added that riot forces were preparing for a long night of violence in the capital and in the north.

Six suspects have been arrested in the murder of 16 year old Mohammad Abu Khdeir.  Several of the suspects were minors.

Shocked many Israelis

The violence of the crime has shocked many in the country, who still find it hard to believe that Jews could be capable of such terror.

The young Arab teen, a resident of the northern Jerusalem suburb of Shuafat, was found dead in the Jerusalem forest last week. Burns covered 90 percent of his body and there were other signs of violence as well. The coroner allegedly reported that he had been burned alive, according to a source.

Arabs instantly used the murder as the excuse to launch a third intifada despite its immediate condemnation by the Israeli leadership before evidence existed the crime was committed by Jews.

Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas has continued to call for an investigation by the United Nations into the murder, despite the fact that suspects have already been taken into custody by Israel Police.

    Where is the equal condemnation on the Arab side like the Arab killed in Jerusalem… We, as a Jewish community, jump on Jews too quickly in condemnation of Jewish acts… As I agree to some degree, the Israeli Arabs who are disrupting Israel’s daily living by throwing rocks and stopping traffic in the north, center and south should also be condemned loudly…

    Now, we should with the same breath, condemn Shelly Dadon’s Israeli Arab taxi killer: Nearly two months after Shelly Dadon was found stabbed to death in a parking lot in Migdal Haemek, where Hussein Yousef Hussein Khalifa, 34, a resident of the Arab village of A’ablin in the Galilee, was arrested on June 16 for suspected involvement in Dadon’s May 1 murder. He later confessed to committing the heinous crime.

    IF WE’RE GOING TO BE JUDGE AND JURY, WE MUST BE OF AN EQUAL OPPORTUNITY IN NATURE;

  2. Linda Cohen says:

    The Jewish Press needs to be professionals and not allow their staff to publish such a problematic story until the facts are in and the proper authorities have announced their conclusion and actually announced who was responsible for the killing of the Arab teen.
    This entire situation is very explosive and the country is in turmoil I think it’s disgusting that any writing should be so disrespectful and ill responsible to try to make a name for them-self at the cost of the security of Israeli citizens, police officers and public property destroyed . Hana Levi Julian regardless of the outcome in this horrific act of murder I HOPE YOU FEEL THE POSSIBILITY OF LOOSING YOUR WRITING CAREER WAS WORTH IT.

  3. When Arabs murder Jews the liberal media labels them as Freedom fighters. Will they call Jewish terrorists freedom fighters as well? They should be consistant.

  5. Chaya Mindal says:

    Absolutely horrific, but understandable. Nobody should kill little boys, BUT these Jews, IF IT is true, will be put away for life. The arab killers and murderers in Israel might or might not even be punished, and they will be let out, given birthday cakes and praised around the world!

  6. Paul Gainer says:

    they’re heroes!

  7. Uzi Kattan says:

    Riots planned as well as the boy murdered by his own. Now Jews are falsely being blamed for this.

  16. Jewish murderers who involve themselves in revenge attacks are not heroes! They are murderers who exceeded the rule about an eye for an eye. The boy had done nothing to warrant a cruel murder. He probably agitated against Israel, but he did not kill a Jew. This was wanton murder of someone who maybe deserved a stern lecture or something. But to murder him by burning him alive…no one is a hero for doing that! We are supposed to bring GOD’s word to the world, but we are intended to break it like these thugs did. Plus, they seem to have wanted to start a war where thousands of Jews might well have died. They are a disgrace to Israel, Judaism, and to the rule of law.

  18. This the result of the Shalit exchange. Terrorists have no reason to fear us. They just get released in another deal and continue to murder. There is no rule of law. In this case people will take the law into their hands and take revenge. Tragic but inevitible.

  19. Aron Safran says:

    What would have happened if he had pulled the same stunt in Tampa?

  20. Aron Safran says:

    They are terrorists, no better than those who murdered our three teens, and need to be treated accordingly.
    If you think otherwise you may as well convert to Islam as you are following their ethics and moral code, not Judaism’s.

  21. Gene Strong says:

    Put a bounty on the heads of Muslims and arabs…dead or alive.

  22. Gene Strong says:

    Arrested ?
    They should be rewarded.

  23. God should help us all! What a crazy world

  24. God should help us all! What a crazy world

  26. Israel please deport them back to the Arab countries that they came from
