US College Sponsored Speakers: Israelis Kidnap, Torture Arab Children

Israel markets itself as a global leader in counter terrorism and counterinsurgency, but it can only do so, claim the Haverford College-sponsored speakers - because they use the "West Bank" and Gaza as labs and the Arabs as their lab rats

“Trust, concern and respect” are the key words in Haverford College’s honor code.

This weekend at least some Haverford students who care about Israel weren’t feeling as if any of those terms applied to them.

There was an event at Haverford College on Sunday, Nov. 24, called “The Soldier and the Refusenik.” The two speakers who presented are traveling throughout the U.S. on a fundraising tour for their organization, Anarchists Against the Wall.  That organization attacks not only the “Occupation,” but Israel’s very existence.

And perhaps worst of all, the Haverford Center for Peace and Global Citizenship was not only a co-sponsor of the event, it also provided technical and financial assistance.

During Sunday’s program, students were told by Israel-critical Israelis such “facts” as:

- Israel uses the “West Bank” and Gaza as its own private lab where it experiments on Palestinian Arabs and then sells the weapons it perfects to the “worst dictators in the world, including the United States”;

- Israeli soldiers kidnap young Arab children from their homes in the middle of the night.  The Israelis then hold those children in military detention centers for one to three days, during which time the children aren’t given any water or allowed to see their parents or a lawyer. The Israelis then coerce the children into lying and saying that certain Arab leaders told the children to throw stones at Israeli soldiers.  The Israeli soldiers then release the children and arrest the Arab leaders;

- Israeli soldiers pretend to be Arabs and join the “peaceful, non-violent Palestinian Arab demonstrations.” The soldiers pretending to be Arabs then throw stones at the Israelis, which unleashes the “hundreds of IDF soldiers” with guns and tear gas canisters who were waiting for the legitimacy provided by the undercover IDF  to attack the non-violent Arab protesters;

- Under Israel’s military law, any threat to Israeli rule is terrorism.  In fact, any Arab who does not “wholeheartedly” accept the occupation is officially deemed a terrorist.

Many of those underhanded strategies of entrapment and undercover work are essential, the speakers explain, because “the IDF can’t have these Ghandi types undermining our Occupation.”  That’s right. The speakers described the Arab Palestinian leadership who are getting arrested as “Ghandi types.”

FIRST, THE FORMER SOLDIER

The presentation began with the former soldier, Eran Efrati.  Efrati has a buoyant, engaging personality.  He wove a very personal tale of his early childhood in a typical Israeli Zionist home, one in which his Auschwitz-survivor grandmother also lived. The Nazis’ arrest of his grandmother’s father in the middle of the night was an episode seared into her brain, and also Eran’s, especially because it seemed so arbitrary.

The word “arbitrary” was a leitmotif of Efrati’s talk.  He wove it into his own experiences in the IDF and those of other soldiers who, according to Efrati’s tale, arbitrarily arrest and terrorize Palestinian Arabs.

As he tells it, there was a pivotal moment in Efrati’s military career which scarred him. But rather than the story revealing a fundamental malevolence in the Israeli military, it sounded more like a description of a moment in which Efrati could have, but failed to, do the right thing. As a direct result of his own inaction, an apparently innocent Arab was arrested and held for days.

The short version of that story is Efrati, stationed in Hebron, tried to make friends with the local Palestinian Arab children by bringing them candies and the ubiquitous peanut butter snack, Bamba.  One child finally took a packet of Bamba from Efrati, and offered Efrati a piece.  That sent Efrati into paroxysms of joy – he was “fulfilling his destiny.” But that very same night Efrati was tapped for night mapping exercise.

A Mapping exercise is when the IDF go into Arab homes in the middle of the night, wake everyone up, and as the male head of household takes them through the house, an IDF troop makes detailed drawings of the inside of the house. The reason given for the mapping exercise is so that in case of a terrorist attack, the IDF knows all the means of ingress and egress from all the homes.

Of course on the night of Efrati’s rise to grace the last home he is told to go into is the one in which the young boy who shared the Bamba with him lives.  Somehow Efrati ends up in the bedroom of the boy who is standing there, stark naked. Efrati points his gun at the boy’s head and the boy wets himself. At that moment the boy’s father comes in the room and starts screaming and hitting the boy, yelling “don’t take him, he’ll be punished!” Just then, Efrati’s fellow soldiers enter the room and, thinking Efrati was in danger, they arrest the father.

    And rational human beings believe this tale of woe? Talk about poor or no education!!!!

  3. Ann Kennedy says:

    Muslim Arabs have perfected the art of lying about their enemies, real or imagined. They have no limits in their fabrications, and they pass the tradition down to their children.

  4. Larry A. Singleton says:

    Martin Kramer:
    Gaza is a place with no Israeli settlements, from which Israel has totally withdrawn to the 1967 lines, and which nonetheless has become a Hamas terror state. That’s what happens in conditions of Gazafication. So when people say that in a two-state solution, Palestinians would have a “right of return” to the West Bank and not Israel, I do not find that particularly reassuring either. Any influx of Palestinians across the Jordan poses a problem for Israel, and it is naive to dismiss it. I would like to hear how, in a two-state scenario, Gazafication of the West Bank can be prevented. I haven’t heard it yet.

    Neither have I.

    Read The Haj by Leon Uris. And ask these questions:

    What year did the nation of Palestine come into existance?
    What were its national borders and what year did it cease to exist?
    What currency did the nation of Palestine use and why is there no history of it?
    Name one leader to the “nation of Palestine” prior to Yasser Arafat.

  6. Tamar Alexander says:

    Jews live very nicely as minorities elsewhere,
    indeed very nicley until they were massacared in muslim countries as well. not forgetting they were 2nd rate citizents in countries like Iran. Not frogetting that out of 150,000 Jews in Iran there are less than 10,000 todaty, I guess all those that left didn;t agree with Wind.

  7. Rael Nidess says:

    Marucs' bio states she's a 'recovered lawyer'… I guess that means she's officially divorced herself from needing to deal with the truth of any given situation. Otherwise, her review would have been more praiseworthy of two young men who've shaken off the shackles of ethnosupremacy and now view themselves as citizens of the same world everyone else inhabits.

  8. Rael Nidess says:

    A classic example of projective identification…

  9. Rael Nidess says:

    Gee Yechiel, the Germans said the same of the Jews, the right-wingers here say the same thing about Hispanic immigrants, the Myanmar Buddhists say the same about the Rohingya Muslims… you sure keep interesting company.

  10. Rael Nidess says:

    Correction to prior: "two young people". Does Marcus have anything to offer beyond ad hominem attacks on those with whom she disagrees or is that how 'recovered lawyers' argue?
