IDF: Significant Decline in Violence and Disturbances Since January

Friday, July 1st, 2016

In a clear example of the difference between statistics and the reality they represent, the IDF has announced a significant decline in acts of violence and disorder since the beginning of the year 2016.

According to the statement, issued at the end of June 2016, in January 2016 there were 20 incidents of shooting, stabbing or ramming with a vehicle, compared with only six in June. Incidents of disturbance of the peace have dropped from 147 in January to a mere 33 in June. A sharp decline was also registered in the number of stone and Molotov cocktail throwing incidents.

According to the same report, since the beginning of 2016 148 terrorists were killed, close to 1,500 suspects were arrested and 16 Terrorist homes were demolished.

Incidentally, 148 in Hebrew numerology is kemakh-flour. It’s also mekakh-bargaining. And khamak-sneaked away.

And now, some useful quotes about statistics:

In ancient times they had no statistics so they had to fall back on lies. Stephen Leacock

Statistics are used much like a drunk uses a lamppost: for support, not illumination. Vin Scully

There are lies, damned lies and statistics. Mark Twain

Facts are stubborn, but statistics are more pliable. Mark Twain

Definition of Statistics: The science of producing unreliable facts from reliable figures. Evan Esar

Statistics: the mathematical theory of ignorance. Morris Kline

I can prove anything by statistics except the truth. George Canning

Undercover Police Entangled in Refugee Camp, Killing Three Arabs

Monday, August 26th, 2013

A Border Police unit shot dead three Palestinians early Monday morning during an attempt to arrest suspects in the Qalandiya refugee camp in northern Jerusalem. 11 Arabs were lightly injured from gunfire, in addition to the three dead: Robin al-Abd, 28, Jihad al-Aslan, 20, and Jonas Jachjuch, 19. the Palestinian Authority condemned the killing.

The unit of undercover officers from the Judea and Samaria Border Police, entered the Qalandiya refugee camp before dawn Monday, and their activity there generated violent disturbances and severe clashes between locals and members of the police unit. Dozens of young locals came out of their homes and began hurling stones at the unit, until the gravely outnumbered force was forced to resort to live fire.

Police testimony shows that after the undercover unit had been exposed, the open confrontation with dozens of angry locals posed real and present danger to their lives. An initial investigation revealed that the officers used riot dispersal means, including the Roger rifle, which fires ammunition at lower and thus less dangerous speeds. A security official told Walla: “We are familiar with the report about deaths and the issue is under review.”

It appears that, despite calming messages from the IDF about how the rate of violence on the part of Judea and Samaria Arabs is going down, a third Intifada is still brewing. Last week, a Palestinian civilian was shot dead and two others were seriously injured, while two IDF soldiers were lightly injured during an arrest operation in the Jenin refugee camp.

The Haredi IDF battalion Netach Yehuda and Border Police arrived in Jenin to execute arrest warrants against Palestinian residents. The arrest attempt, much like this morning’s scenario, developed into mass disturbances against the two forces, as dozens of Arabs began throwing stones, grenades and improvised explosive devices at the two forces.
