HANDICAPPED?

The ‘Disabled’ Terrorist Stood Up to Attack IDF

Palestinian Authority media report that the IDF shot a disabled man who had been in a wheelchair. So how did he manage to throw hammers at soldiers and try to snatch a rifle. IDF: Terror plot foiled.

IDF soldiers stopped a large-scale terrorist plot in the works with the arrest of a known Hevron terrorist who Arab media claimed who was critically injured even though he was disabled and has been confined to a wheelchair.

Amjad al-Najjar, the director of the Palestinian Prisoners Society office in Hevron, “denounced the arrest raid targeting a man who is already unable  to walk without assistance,” the Bethlehem-based Ma’an news agency reported.

The terrorist, Motaz Faraj Ibedo, was reported as being unable to walk on his own since he was shot in 2011 in the abdomen, and supposedly was “permanently disabled” after a bullet allegedly ruptured internal organs.

Just to make the case even more thrilling, Ibedo claimed he was shot while in custody and cannot walk because of paralyzed left leg.

But even Maan reported  without any contradiction, that an IDF spokeswoman said he “threw objects including a gas can at soldiers” and tried to snatch a soldier’s rifle.

For someone who can’t walk, he is pretty athletic.

The Jewish Press asked the IDF exactly what happened and got a slightly different version.

First of all, Ibedo was arrested for being involved in terrorist activity – again – but nothing small-time.

He “was involved in  something very serious, not marginal, but I can’t share any more information with you because the case still is under investigation,” and IDF spokesman told the Jewish Press.

There is some other information that Maan did not report. For example, he was arrested in a hideout, not in his home.

And the “handicapped” man “threw at the soldiers everything he could get his hands on,” such as hammers, said a military spokeswoman. “I won’t say he does not have a disability, but he can walk,” a spokesman added.

For a man who supposedly cannot walk on his own, he must have had an angel helping him because he walked down the stairs from the second floor, where soldiers nabbed him, and then tried to grab a soldier’s rifle.

The soldier then shot him in the hand. The “critical” injury amounted to his losing a finger, according to the IDF. Actually, it was a critical injury for the terrorist, whose ability to kill a soldier or Israeli civilian with a rifle is now severely limited.

The spokesman noted that even if he were in a wheelchair, “That does not give him a free pass.”

For years, foreign media have gobbled up Arab media reports that Israel’s counterterrorist actions have killed the handicapped, the elderly, pregnant women and mentally ill people.

Several “pregnant women” were discovered in ambulances during the Oslo War, otherwise known as the Second Intifada. On closer inspection, the “pregnant women” often turned out to be terrorists with weapons and suicide belts on their way to “delivery.”

  1. No more prisoners – kill them and the government won't be able to release them.

  2. Louis Joffe says:

    Shoot him in both knee caps to make sure he won't walk again.

  3. Les Le Gear says:

    Sledge hammer to both knees would prevent thugs like him from repeating terrorist activities for some time.

  4. Tried to snatch a rifle? Then why was he not shot dead? He will only be used with hundreds of his colleagues as blackmail in a trade for the bones of more dead Jews or another Shalit down the road…Time to get serious with those aiming to kill and maim Jews… http://q4j-middle-east.com
