IDF to Question Soldiers Caught on Film Hitting Arab Provocateur [video]

Saturday, June 13th, 2015

The Palestinian Authority is gloating over footage of soldiers apparently beating an innocent man, but soldiers said that the video does not show a prior scene of the man trying to snatch on their rifles.

The IDF said it the apparent behavior of the soldiers, seen kicking him while he was pinned to the ground, does not “match expectations” of the military.

The incident took place neat Beit El and Ramallah, as it does every Friday. Dozens of people, including children, hurl rocks at soldiers and often cause injuries. Soldiers said that the man shown in the film is a constant thorn in their side and always incites others.

It is not easy being an Israeli soldier in Judea and Samaria. Troops are forbidden to shoot bullets at rock thrower. They are constantly filmed by Arab media who are waiting for a chance to show the soldiers as thugs.

This time they succeeded. Even if the video left out the attempted rifle-snatching and assault of a soldier, the “disproportionate” response darkens Israel’s image that is never going to be positive in the eyes of the media and political leaders.

Below is the video as filmed and edited by Arab media.

Jerusalem Arabs Terrorize Light Rail Train – Again

Tuesday, June 9th, 2015

Jerusalem Arabs threw rocks at the Jerusalem Light Rail train on the route that passes through the Arab Shuafat neighborhood in northern Jerusalem.

The train sustained damage, but no one was injured.

Arab attackers object to the light rail passing through “occupied” territory” and making it easier for saner Arabs to travel to and from downtown Jerusalem.

Leftists Join A-Tur Arabs in Violent Clash with Police

Wednesday, April 29th, 2015

Police dispersed dozens of protesters, including Jewish leftists, in the Arab A-Tur neighborhood in eastern Jerusalem Wednesday morning after they threw rocks at security forces to protest a police closure of streets.

A-Tur has been a center of violence that peaked, for the time being, on Saturday after one of its teenagers was killed while trying to stab and murder an Israeli policeman.

The police ordered the streets closed and were met with protests Wednesday morning by residents and leftists charging that “collective punishment” was being imposed on 3,000 people.

Police fired stun grenades when the group refused orders to disperse.

One of the leftists, who identified himself only as “Amiel,” told Israel’s Reshet Bet (Kol Yisrael) radio that the collective punishment is racist.

He explained by asking why the police do not close the streets of Netanya when there is an underworld murder and why they don’t close off the community of Bat Ayin, in Gush Etzion, because of “violent criminals” living there.

Amiel would have a case if it weren’t for the fact that collective punishment also is meted out to Jews, such as when the police last year closed the entire Ode Yosef Chai Yeshiva in Yitzhar, in Samaria, because of a few students’ alleged “price tag” actions against Arabs.

Jews arrived to protest the shutdown of the yeshiva last year, but Amiel did not join them.

And do Amiel and his left-wing friends protest when A-Tur terrorists try to run over Jews or try to ambush them by execution with rock-throwing?

Does anyone recall the last time Amiel showed up at a protest for victims of terror?

The so-called Kol Yisrael, the flagship of Israel’s pro-pluralism, anti-settler establishment media, did not ask the above questions.

Nor did the interviewer mention to Amiel that Bat Ayin Jews and the mayor of Netanya condemn the violence by a tiny minority of their communities, while A-Tur Arabs always claim their terrorists are really peaceful citizens who have been framed by the police.

The interviewer also did not compare the number of incidents of violence in Netanya and Bat Ayin with those in A-Tur, Shuafat, attacks on Jerusalem’s light rail station and daily attempts to murder Jewish motorists and passengers in Judea and Samaria.

By the way, neighborhoods in Baltimore are under “collective punishments” at the moment.

Amiel is invited to fly there and protest.

IDF Confronts Terrorists on Two Fronts; One Rock-Thrower Killed

Monday, December 29th, 2014

Soldiers caught two Palestinian Authority rock-throwing terrorists in the act of trying to murder Jews on Monday and killed one and wounded the other after they refused to heed warning shots near the Tapuach junction in northern Samaria.

Elsewhere, soldiers fired warning shots at Gaza terrorists approaching Israel on land and by sea, and terrorists threw firebombs on the secondary highway linking Jerusalem with Tel Aviv via Modi’in. A firebomb attacks last Thursday night has left an 11-year-old Israeli girl in critical condition.

“The forces called them to halt and fired warning shots, and when they didn’t comply they responded to the threat with direct fire which wounded one of the attackers,” an IDF spokeswoman said.

The other terrorist, age 19 according to the Bethlehem-based Ma’an News Agency, was evacuated to a hospital in Shechem with moderate gunshot wounds.

In Gaza, soldiers fired warning shots over the heads of Arabs approaching the separate barriers and at fishing boats veering towards prohibited waters.
