Who’s Lying? PA and Israel Clash on Autopsy Results of Abu Ein [video]

Thursday, December 11th, 2014

A senior Palestinian Authority minister has claimed that the autopsy report on the death of the PA minister who died during a protest and clash with the IDF Wednesday “without a doubt” was killed by soldiers, contradicting an Israeli source who said violence was not the direct cause of his death.

Hussein al-Sheikh, the Palestinian Authority responsible for personal affairs, said the autopsy showed Ziad Abu Ein’s death was caused by being beaten and by inhaling tear gas. Abi Ein’s career in the Palestinian Authority includes murdering two Israelis and wounding 32 others in a bomb explosion in Tiberias in 1979,

Video footage of Wednesday’s incident shows clips but no continuity of the events. The only violence that is shown is that a soldier pushed Abu Ein while he tried to shove his way past them yelling at the same time that the IDF is a “terrorist’ group.

He also made the incredible accusation that the Israeli doctor at the autopsy agreed that Abu Ein died from violence but refused to sign the autopsy report, which states:

The death of Ziad Abu Ein was caused by a blockage of the coronary artery (one of the arteries that supplies blood to the heart) due to hemorrhaging underneath a layer of atherosclerotic plaque. The bleeding could have been caused by stress.

Indications of light hemorrhaging and localized pressure were found in his neck.

The deceased suffered from ischemic heart disease; blood vessels in his heart were found to be over 80% blocked by plaque. Old scars indicating that he suffered from previous myocardial infarctions were also found.

The poor condition of the deceased’s heart caused him to be more sensitive to stress.

It is necessary to wait for the medical treatment report before determining more incisive explanations on this matter.

The video footage of the protest clearly shows that at Abu Ein fell while holding his chest and that there was no direct physical contact from someone else. Aides tended to him while soldiers stood by and Abu Ein then stood up and collapsed.

Moments after Abu Ein died, it was clear that the Palestinian Authority had decided he was killed, regardless of what an autopsy report would state. The same thing happened last month, when an autopsy report of the death of a Jerusalem Arab bus driver declared he hanged himself. The Palestinian Authority insisted “settlers” had killed him.

Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas on Wednesday condemned the “barbaric act” by Israeli soldiers and predicted that Israel would fabricate accounts in order to clear itself of the “murder of minister Abu Ein.”

Abbas declared him a “martyr.”

IDF Adds Battalions in Judea, Samaria; High Alert in Jewish Towns

Thursday, December 11th, 2014

Two IDF battalions and two Border Patrol units from the Israel Police force were sent to beef up security Wednesday in Judea and Samaria, while Jewish towns raised their alert status.

The order by IDF Chief of Staff Lt.-Gen. Benny Gantz followed the sudden heart attack and death of a Palestinian Authority minister who was participating in clashes with Israeli soldiers at a village near the PA capital of Ramallah, in Samaria.

PA Minister of Settlements Ziad Abu Ein, formerly the entity’s Minister of Prisoner Affairs, collapsed during the violence. He died shortly after at a Ramallah hospital.

PA chairman Mahmoud Abbas immediately blamed Abu Ein’s death on Israeli soldiers who were trying to quell the violent mob, calling it an “intolerable barbaric act.”

Regardless, Israeli pathologists from the Abu Kabir Forensics Institute in Tel Aviv will join with Jordanian pathologists to investigate the cause of death, the IDF said in a statement. It is not clear where the autopsy will take place.

It is expected that Abu Ein’s body will be laid to rest on Thursday, the day after he died of what appears to have been a heart attack.

Gantz’s decision to send more troops to the region came following an assessment made during a meeting with senior security chiefs.

Arabs began rioting in Kalandia Wednesday evening, according to a military source. The PA village is situated between Ramallah and Jerusalem and is a flashpoint for violence. It has become one of the “hot spots” where Arab demonstrations often spiral out of control.

Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria immediately went to high alert following Abu Ein’s death; security teams beefed up patrols.

But the entire country is on a moderate alert status in any case, due to the ongoing Arab violence that has been maintained at a simmer by both Israeli Arab agitators and those in the Palestinian Authority since the inconclusive end to this summer’s counter terror Operation Protective Edge.

Daily attacks against Israelis on the roads, in the Jerusalem Light Rail and elsewhere around the country has kept tensions high between Arabs, Jews and other Israelis . Among those “others” are the Druze who serve in the nation’s security forces, and who have also lost members of their community in the lethal Arab violence aimed at Israelis.

Egyptian Girl Dies in ‘Female Circumcision’ Operation

Thursday, June 20th, 2013

A 13-year-old girl died while being circumcised by a doctor in a small village northeast of Cairo, according to the website Al Masry Al Youm.

Suhair al-Bata’a, who went by the nickname Soo-Soo, died of a “sharp drop in blood pressure resulting from shock trauma,” was the statement given by officials following the child’s autopsy.

The doctor who performed the circumcision allegedly offered the family the equivalent of $2,900 to keep quiet about the incident, said the girl’s uncle, Mohammed al-Bata’a, according to Al Masry.

The doctor, who is not named in Al Masry’s article, had circumcised the girl’s older sister, Amira, two years earlier, her parents said.

Egypt’s National Council for Women called the incident a criminal act that showed “extreme savagery,” and called on the government to investigate the issue and punish those responsible, Al Arabiya reported.

Egypt outlawed female circumcision in 2007, following the death of a 12-year-old girl from a circumcision procedure, but the government continued to allow them under some circumstances.

The controversial practice, also known as female genital mutilation, is widespread in Egypt. According to a 2005 UNICEF study cited by the Guardian, “96 percent of Egyptian women aged 15 to 49 who had ever been married reported they had been circumcised.”

Female genital mutilation in Egypt is practiced by both Christian and Muslim families. Its advocates say it protects the girl’s chastity and reduces her sexual desire.

Israel Says Resuscitation Efforts Broke Dead PA Prisoner’s Ribs

Thursday, February 28th, 2013

The broken ribs that Palestinian Authority prisoner Arafat Jarakat suffered were due to resuscitation efforts, Israel officials announced Thursday. Jarakat died last Saturday and the Palestinian Authority immediately claimed he was tortured to death.

An initial autopsy, in the presence of a PA doctor and legal team, revealed that there were no signs of violence on his body. The PA rejected the findings, and thousands of Arabs in Judea, Samaria and Gaza rioted and threw firebombs and rocks at soldiers and Israeli motorists.

An update on the autopsy released by Israel on Thursday staged, “It was found that the hemorrhages and fractured ribs found during the autopsy occurred close to death and are characteristic of the resuscitation attempts that were performed on the deceased by Prison Service and MDA medical staff for 50 minutes in an effort to save his life.”

The examination of microscopic findings was made NationalCenter for Forensic Medicine Director Prof. Yehuda Hiss, Health Ministry Medical Administration Director Prof. Arnon Afek, and TelHaShomerHospital’s Pathology Institute Director Prof. Iris Barshack.

“No signs of other contusions were found. The toxicology tests were also negative,” they stated.

“There were no signs of significant change due to illness in other organs that could indicate cause of death; therefore, further tests to determine the cause will be performed.”
