Court Convicts Second Rock-Throwing Killer of Asher Palmer

Tuesday, December 31st, 2013

A military court has convicted the second of two Arabs who killed Asher Palmer and his two-your-sold son by throwing a huge rock at their vehicle near Kiryat Arba in 2011.

Last July, the court sentenced Waal al-Arjeh to a double life sentence plus 58 tears in jail for the murder, the first time military judges have recognized rocks as murder weapons. Ali Sa’ada, convicted on Monday for the same crime, now faces a similar sentence.

Both terrorists smashed Palmer’s windshield. Palmer, who was hit in the head by the rock, lost control of his car and overturned. Israeli insisted that Palmer and his son died in a traffic accident and did not tie the deaths with  rock-throwing until the publication of photographs that clearly showed a bloodstained rock, the size of a cinder block or small boulder, and a hole in the car’s windshield.

The attorney for Michael Palmer, Asher’s father, said that al Arjeh, who worked for the  Palestinian Authority security force, was the ringleader of a terrorist cell that attacked Jewish motorists several times.

Abbas’ Fatah Party Praises ‘Hero’ Who Stabbed Jew to Death

Wednesday, May 1st, 2013

The Fatah party, headed by Palestinian Authority PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, took no more than 12 hours before lauding the terrorist who stabbed to death 31-year-old Evyatar Borovsky, father of five children, Tuesday morning in northeastern Samaria.

The praise directly contradicts Obama administration claims that the Palestinian Authority no longer incites terror.

A picture of the  terrorist and of the victim, with tefillin, were posted on Fatah’s Facebook page, and the text, translated and published online by the Palestinian Media Watch (PMW), calls the murderer, “The hero, the released prisoner, Salam Al-Zaghal.”

Al-Zaghal was released from jail last year after serving time for hurling rocks at Jews. Out of jail, he abandoned rocks and firebombs on Tuesday for more serious weapons, like a deadly knife.

“The youth Salam Al-Zaghal who stabbed the settler at the Al-Za’atara military checkpoint comes from the village of Shweika located in the Tulkarm District. He is a released prisoner who sat in the occupation’s prisons for 4 years,” the Fatah page stated, according to PMW.

Under one picture, a caption states, “Salam Al-Zaghal who stabbed the settler at the Al-Za’atara checkpoint is a released prisoner who sat in the occupation’s prisons for 4 years.”

Another caption reads, “Peace upon you, on the day of your birth, on the day of your arrest, and on the day you will go free”

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry bragged last month that proof of the Palestinian Authority’s presumed ability to promote peace and not terror is the fact that no one Jew was killed in 2012.

He did not talk about 2011, when a two-year-old boy and his American-Israeli father, Asher Palmer, were killed after a Palestinian Authority terrorist hurled a rock at their vehicle. The rock hit Palmer in the head, and he lost control of his car, which crashed off the highway’s shoulder, killing him and his son.

It remains to be seen if Kerry will talk about 2013, although he can claim that for four full months, minus one day, a Palestinian Authority terrorist did not kill any Jews.

That does not means they did not try, not once and not twice but hundreds of times.

(((CLICK BELOW TO HEAR AUDIO)))

Yishai is joined by Michael Palmer, father of the slain Asher Palmer (one of Yishai’s neighbors in Beit El). A stone thrown at Asher’s car caused it to veer off the road and both Asher and baby son, Yonatan, were killed. The stone thrower was just convicted in this landmark case and Yishai and Mr. Palmer help us gain a greater understanding of the seriousness of rock-throwing as a tactic of terrorism. Listen in to this touching segment.
