Police Stop Palestinian Authority Prime Minister for Speeding

Tuesday, January 14th, 2014

Israeli soldiers stopped a speeding car north of Ramallah Tuesday, and it turned out to be a vehicle driving Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Razi Hamdallah, who immediately turned the incident into a nasty political fight.

He reportedly called one soldier a “dog” and scorned him for standing in “occupied territory.”

His car and convoy had been stopped for crossing the solid white line and for other violations resulting from reckless driving  on Highway 60, the major artery connecting Jerusalem, Ofra , Beit El and other northern Jewish communities. It also bypasses Ramallah, which is connected with Highway by an “Arab only” road.

The IDF called the police to handle the situation, and then it was realized that the car was part of an official PA convoy, which usually travels with an Israeli police escort. The convoy and the IDF eventually parted company after a stalemate following Hamdallah’s demand for an apology and the IDF’s refusal.

The way the Bethlehem-based Ma’an News Agency reported the incident, “a group of settlers escorted by Israeli soldiers” stopped Hamdallah’s car and convoy, and Hamdallah alleged that the soldiers planned to assault him,

How he knew their plans is not known, but if the Palestinian Authority is smart, it will see the arrest as a divine sign that Mahmoud Abbas indeed is speeding too fast, politically, for his own good.

Two of Four Killed in Bus-Truck Crash Were Soldiers

Sunday, August 4th, 2013

At least two of four people killed in a bus-truck crash on Israel’s high-speed Highway 6 (Kvish 6) Sunday have been identified as soldier Cps. Chai Ben Naim of Rishon LeTzion, near Tel Aviv, and First Sergeant Kfir Dahari of Yavne, south of Rishon LeTzion.

The names of the other two victims have not been released.

The truck was disabled on the shoulder of the north-south highway, and police are investigating if the truck was jutting on to the highway and are questioning the bus driver why he did not notice the truck before ramming into it.

The bus was destroyed, and 30 other people were injured. Police have taken away the licenses of both drivers.
