Violent Riot Police Extract Settler from Home in Under 5 Hrs.

A woman and a 9-year-old boy were among the more severely beaten.

Around 8:30 PM Tuesday, after four and a half hours of hard work, a force from the Home Front Command managed to break through the locking construction set up by Boaz Albert, Hakol Hayehudi reported.

Albert is a resident of Yitzhar, a Jewish town in Samaria, south of Sh’chem. An executive order has been issued against him by the military, to stay out of Yitzhar, an order which Albert was defying. And to make good on his defiance, Albert locked himself up with this iron gizmo, making it impossible to remove him without cutting off parts of his body – something even our violent riot police does not do.



Dozens of riot police (their official name, YaSaM, stands for “special patrol unit”) showed up at the Albert home at 4 PM Tuesday, surrounding the home and fighting through the crowd of locals and additional supporters who had arrived in a long caravan of cars. The riot police did what riot police do everywhere, from Istanbul, Turkey to Oakland, California: beat the daylights out of unarmed civilians and sprayed hot pepper into their faces.

A woman and a 9-year-old boy were among the more severely beaten. Police and civilians also exchanged rocks and eggs (civilians) for stun grenades and tear gas (police). The locals also sprayed the cops with water, it being the eve of Hoshana Rabba, when we pray for water for the entire year. In fact, throughout the event the locals continued to sing holiday songs and raising wine glasses from the Albert family vinyard.

Our friends at Women in Green sent out a press release calling on the government to stop persecuting Boaz Albert and to devote the vast resources spent on tearing him away from his home to look for the Arab terrorists who’ve been murdering soldiers recently.

Boaz Albert has become the cause célèbre of the National religious camp after an incident in August in which riot cops showed up in his house and tasered him several times while hauling him out – despite the fact that Albert was passive and offered no active resistance. That unmitigated cruelty marked a new low in the behavior of Israel’s riot goon squad, and received condemnations from politicians, including from the left.

All this attention also made Albert a favorite target of the riot police, whose career paths may have suffered on account of that August night of electric shocks. Hence the repeated attempts to force Albert to comply with the executive order – and the persistent resistance on the part of Albert and the Jews of Judea and Samaria.

Mind you, the executive order was not issued – back in the winter of 2006 – for things Boaz Albert (and 18 others) have done. It states that the group of 19 settlers are forbidden to enter Judea and Samaria because the GSS, based on “solid intelligence,” believes each one of them is likely to “act clandestinely and violently against Arabs and Arab property.”

The GSS and the riot police tend to make everything personal, and to them making sure this settler is kept away from his home and his family is far more important than chasing after killer Arabs. Angry and brutal – two qualities they prize in cops in hotspots like Moscow and Kuala Lumpur – mark Israel’s special police unit’s treatment of Israeli Jews. They are a stain on Israel’s democracy, much like that executive order that punishes a man for things he will probably do in the future.

    Those "executive orders" look very much like the way dictatorships get rid of political opponents. They should be abolished as they have no place in a democracy. How come that our high court, which is so very proactive when it comes to defend the rights of Arabs, isn't reacting to this blatant denial of justice when it comes to the rights of Jews? Maybe a dose of democracy should be also inserted in the nomination of its members: how about having all the members of the Israeli Bar (attorneys, prosecutors, and judges) electing them?

    Instead of going after terrorists our soldiers are persecuting Jews????

    Oh My Goodness… what kind of a message are you sending to the entire world, Israel?  We watch you intently… this only gives the thugs of the world reason to laugh even more!!  Is this the message you want the world to have… that you kick out your very own People… based on something they “might do” in the future?  G-D Forbid!!   The world follows Your lead, whether they realize it or not… YOU’RE THE LEADER, ISRAEL…to all of us… Please do not do this and stop it immediately!!!

    Netanyahu is the head of the monster.  The politzei is not different than other bestial forces we know from the past.
    While facing the great danger caused by Netanyahu and his associates is a local matter, his reception in the US should reflect his disgraceful net worth.

  7. Anonymous says:

    Netanyahu and you leckayers get out, Israel needs urgently leaders with gonads.

  8. Anonymous says:

    The problem is that Boaz did wear his Muslim at the Kotel disguise, then the YaSam wouldn't even have seen him. Now they may have beaten all the other Jews for being close to him, but not him.
    We will all look back on this, when there is no Israel and all the Government workers will look at us in Shul and say "Who is to blame for loosing the country?" More Torah, less politics, What would Mattathias ben Johanan do? I believe he would be in Albert's home, celebrating Simcha Torah, I don't think he'd leave without a word or two.

  9. Anonymous says:

    Remember Mrs. Obadia, the rules democracy end in Israel where ever the US says they do. It would seem that Albert, May HaShem Bless him and his family, lives out side the area allowed for Jews and democracy

  10. the police did the right thing!

  11. Lena Hicks Winters says:

    Well it's all the fault of the Arabs for being on the land the Jews wanted before they got there. I mean Jews don't really have to honor the ten commandments when it applies to Arabs do they?

  12. Nazi WASP filth of course would allege that spinning actual history falsifying it, wouldn't they?

  13. muman613 says:

    What a crying shame that good Jews are punished for living according to the Torah. Shame on the Nazi police units who beat and maim innocent Jews while ignoring rock-throwing murderers who have stolen our Temple mount from us. Hashem will lay his hand against the government who suppresses the true Jews in the land. He will sweep away those who oppressed our brothers in Judea and Samaria. Kahane Chai!

  14. muman613 says:

    SHmuel Netanyahu is worse than a ******. It bothers me so much when I hear any Jew singing praises to this jerk. We call him a Phony Rightwinger who knows all the correct phrases to say in English, and he dances the hip dances, but when it comes to substance there is none. Netanyahu is a bunch of old hot air.
