Four ‘Price Tag’ Arsonists Sentenced to 3 Months of Public Service

Tuesday, April 14th, 2015

The Jerusalem District Court Monday sentenced four teenage boys from Arad and Judea and Samaria to three months of community service for setting fire to a café near Hebron.

The Prosecutor had originally asked for a six-month jail sentence.

Police obtained a video of the four boys, with their faces covered, running away from the café in the Arab village of Dura, which has been a hotbed of terrorist activity.

One of the boys said they acted out of revenge for a Dura Arab’s around attack in Beit El, located in Samaria and north of Jerusalem.

Arsonists Attacks Christian Seminary in Jerusalem

Thursday, February 26th, 2015

Arsonists damaged a Greek Orthodox seminary in Jerusalem’s Old City in the pre-dawn hours Thursday, and spray-painted anti-Christian graffiti.

No one was injured, and damage was minimal.

A Greek Church archbishop said two people who hid their faces three a flammable liquid at a bathroom in the seminary, located on Mt. Zion (Hat Tzion).

He said there have been previous threats from people whom he described as religious Jews.

Newspapers in the United States carried a report of the fire, which further blackens the image of Israel and of Orthodox Jews.

Another attack, this time on a mosque in Judea and Samaria, was reported Wednesday.

Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat vigorously condemned the apparent arson attack and said, “There is no room for such deplorable activity in Jerusalem. We must eradicate this behavior and bring those responsible to justice.”

 

 

 

Charges Dropped and File Closed in Latrun Monastery Attack

Thursday, December 25th, 2014

In September 2012, vandals painted graffiti and vandalized a monastery in Latrun.

At the time, speculation went wild as to who did it, and of course, settlers were immediately blamed, despite the lack of evidence.

In July 2013, Moshe Orbach, a 22 year old man from Givot HaShomron was arrested and held for 9 days, accused of the crime.

But for the past year and half the police investigation went nowhere.

On Thursday all charges against Orbach were dropped and his file officially closed, after police found no evidence that actually linked Orbach to the crime.

Orbach’s lawyer from Honeinu said this is yet another example of an irresponsible police fishing expedition that led nowhere, except to more false arrests instigated by political and media pressure.

Orbach is considering suing the police for false arrest.

Palestinian Authority Claims Settlers Torched Home near Ramallah

Sunday, November 23rd, 2014

Jews in Samaria allegedly set fire to a home near Ramallah, north of Jerusalem, last Saturday night and left behind graffiti in Hebrew that stated “Death to Arabs.”

Dozens of similar “price tag” attacks in the past have been attributed to Jews. Sometimes, the attackers are caught. More often, they are not.

Lefties complain that the police do not catch the culprits, but one of the reasons is that sometimes the whole case was contrived by Arabs to frame Jews. Another possibility is that the James Bond Dept. of the Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) is behind the criminal act in order to build up media outrage at settlers so the public will pressure the government to expel them to Tel Aviv.

In this case, “settlers” supposedly knocked on the door of the home, discovered no one was home and then scrawled hate slogans and set the residence on fire, using flammable liquid.

A mother with three children were reported to be in the house and were claimed to have been rescued by neighbors through the back door;

Pray tell, why did the Jews, bang on the door? To give them warning to leave? To ask for a match? To burn the residents also?

And if no one was home, how does anyone know that those awful settlers banged on the door?

Did the neighbors hear the noise?

And if so, why didn’t they whip out their smartphones and take pictures of the arsonists?

And where was the husband?

For the record, idiotic Jews may have torched the home.

Unless, of course, someone wanted to frame the Jews, and perhaps even collect insurance at the same time.

False Arrest for Highlighters

Friday, July 4th, 2014

A boy from Tapuach was arrested overnight when Taibe police driving by noticed him waiting at a bus stop at Tzomet Kessem and looking suspicious to them, because he looked like a “hilltop youth”.

They asked what he was doing at the hitchhiking station (“going home”), and if he was planning on writing “Tag Machir” – Price Tag somewhere (“no”).

They demanded to see the contents of his bag (he complied).

The police found three highlighters in his bag and arrested him, as they decided he was his thinking about writing “Tag Machir” somewhere (with yellow highlighters!).

The boy explained that the highlighters are for highlighting words in his notebook.

The boy was taken to the Taibe police station.

In the morning, the very overworked Jewish civil rights lawyer Itamar Ben-Gvir arrived, threatened the police with a civil lawsuit for false arrest (and hopefully idiocy), and the police released the boy with no charges.

Youth Cleared of Price Tag Charges; Shin Bet Continues to Stalk

Monday, June 2nd, 2014

The Shin Bet security service issued a restraining order today against an 18-year-old resident of the Binyamin region who was released from police custody last week following two weeks of interrogation by security officers. 

According to Honenu, a legal aid organization that is representing the family, interrogators beat the teenager, known only as “S.”,but failed to provide evidence linking him with the Price Tag attack for which he was detained.

The suspect was due to complete his police-ordered period of house arrest today. 

“It seems that interrogators wanted to do their own ‘price tag’ attack to avenge their failed interrogation,” Honenu said in  a statement.

Honenu said that police raided the suspects’ house early Sunday morning, detained him and brought him to the Shin Bet interrogation centre in Petah Tikva. The suspect was put in a cell with “Ehud” and “Maimon”, to agents who had questioned him at length. The Shin Bet men warned the man they would “not get off his case,” and told him they had a “gift” for him – and presented him with an administrative order preventing him from entering Judea and Samaria for a year. 

The order was signed by General Nitzan Alon, commander of the IDF Central Command.

Family members and friends accused the Shin Bet of acting like “thugs” and “common criminals,” and said the restraining order is nothing more than revenge against the young man for humiliating investigators. “He was investigated for an incident that took place in the north of Israel, six months ago. Now, all of a sudden it’s dangerous for him to be in Judea and Samaria,” they said.

Soldier Arrested, Suspected of anti-Pope Graffiti at IDF Base

Monday, May 26th, 2014

An IDF soldier was arrested this week on suspicion he was involved in slashing the tires of an IDF vehicle and spray painting the words “price tag” and “death to the Pope” on an IDF vehicle. The soldier reportedly denied any involvement in the incidents.

According to Honenu, a non-profit legal aid organization, the soldier, who is a graduate of the David’s Tomb Yeshiva and wears a large knitted kiipa, was arrested last Monday and interrogated for two days. The organization said the soldier denied the accusations, but added that interrogators made him write “Death to the Pope” apparently in order to compare the handwriting to the graffiti on the IDF vehicle.

The soldier returned to his unit without charge.
