Israeli Police Illegal Arrest and Interrogation Fail to Pin Firebombing on 13- and 12-Year-Old Jewish Boys (Video)

As of now, the media hoopla surrounding the little 'terrorists' has fizzled away, and no one seems bothered by the blatant rights violations of innocent minors.

“A detective and special riot police force officer came to my house and said that I am under arrest for questioning in Maale Adumim,” 12 year old A. described his arrest. “They caught me by the hands and put me in a police car that took me to the Judea and Samaria station in Maale Adumim.”

“The interrogations went on for 9 hours straight. They asked me if I was present at the incident and if I knew who did it.”

A. remained silent throughout the exhausting interrogations. Only after he was allowed to speak with a lawyer from Honenu, did he present his alibi.

As part of the attempt to apply psychological pressure, the children were shown pictures of the Arab victims, some of them badly burnt. A. was also taken to the entrance of the hospital where the victims are hospitalized.

Two of the boys were even taken to the scene of the incident in order to recreate the crime, however they refused to participate with the detectives, denying any connection to the incident.

“When they took me to reconstruct the crime, I asked Shmulik Piamenta (commander of the Judea and Samaria police interrogation unit) to call my father to come because we were very close to our settlement,” A. related.

“Piamenta told me that my father was just on his way to the station. Afterwards, I spoke with my father and he said that he was at home. At this point, I understood that Piamenta was lying to me and that I cannot believe this person,” described A.

According to M., when he asked to speak with Honenu attorney Adi Kedar, the interrogating officers “innocently” claimed that they had never heard of the organization and that they don’t know Kedar, whom they had been working against for over 20 years.

“During the interrogation, they told me that my friends confessed to everything and that because I wasn’t talking, I would wind up with 20 years in jail,” said M. “That’s how they shouted and threatened me for seven hours.”

“They tell you that they know everything about you, but in reality they just know a few details and blow it up as if they know a lot,” said 13-year-old M., whose five days of exhausting interrogations taught him a thing or two about behavior under police interrogation. “You have to remain silent because if you are silent, you will get out quicker.”

A. concluded with words of appreciation for the Honenu employees and attorneys Adi Kedar and David Levi who represented him, as well as to all the friends who came to the hearings to show support.

“It’s better not to contact anyone or talk to anyone,” he imparted his newly acquired wisdom. “Just listen the Honenu lawyers and to God.”

    If the Police dared act the way with Arab adults, it would be internationally pilloried and that's why the police doesn't dare deny them the Habeas Corpus. However, when it comes to Jews, the treatment is quite different: adults are beaten up and children are entrapped and interrogated without parents or attorneys being present. Where did they learn their job? The KGB? Every single police officer implicated in this case needs to be fired and stripped of his Israeli citizenship. They have been pay to serve the nation of Israel as peace officers, but they don't know what it is to be a public servant and they are acting against the nation paying their salary.

  2. Sharon Marks Altshul says:

    The police in Jerusalem arrested 13 year old boys who were walking by a protest on their way to the Kotel on Shabat afternoon as was their usual Shabat practice. Luckily the eleven year old brother not taken and was a witness, otherwise how would the parents know their sons were put into a police car and taken to police station on Shabat afternoon in handcuffs. Disgraceful that the boys had to remain there until 11:00pm, their crime wearing a hat and going to the Kotel to pray.

  3. Chaiya Eitan says:

    What the hell is going on in this country…..where kids can be taken in and interrogated without their parents present? This is outrageous! Who is responsible for this?

  4. our courts of sodom and chelm. our media. our leaders. all enemies of the true jews.and especially of the torah. this goes on all the time. welcome to israel

  5. what a horrible story. hopefully Hashem will judge and strengh these boys. (and all the others…)

  6. I wholeheartedly agree…the parents should be present – under arrest with their brat hooligan children. Where were they when their kids were breaking the law?

  7. Muriel Coudurier-Curveur says:

    Turns out the kids had done nothing. The police just wanted to show the public how zealous they are in punishing crime, so they grabbed innocents off the street. Being arrested doesn't mean being guilty. Being arrested means you're suspected of wrong doing, although, in the case, that wasn't even needed: all the kids had to do was being waking at the convenient moment the police needed a chump
