Police Arrest Boaz Albert on Suspicion of Attacking IDF Post

Wednesday, April 9th, 2014

Dozens of police pounced on the home of Boaz Albert in Yitzhar Wednesday afternoon and arrested him for allegedly participating in the rampage Tuesday on an IDF post in the community, according to the Hebrew-language Kol HaYehudi website.

The assault on the military post Tuesday caused widespread damage, as reported here.

Albert was arrested three month after he was released  from jail following his refusal to obey an administrative order to stay away from his home.

Police on Wednesday  also arrested a 25-year-old man at the Gilad Farm community on suspicion of involvement in Tuesday’s rampage.

The farm and Albert both have been become  symbols representing different images to different people – heroes of the settler movement who have not surrendered to violent midnight arrests and demolitions, and villains for anti-nationalists who see them as extremists who place themselves above the law.

Albert was in the headlines earlier this year after refusing to honor a military order that prohibited him from staying at his home but without any specific charges filed against him. Police arrested him several times for violating the order. During one arrest, it took police four hours to take him into custody because he had chained himself to floor.

Albert stayed in jail four months until he was finally freed.

Tuesday’s violence following the demolition of four homes in Yitzhar. The spokeswoman for the Shomron Regional Council called the destruction of the house a “price tag’ operation in revenge for a  Yitzhar youth having punctured the tires of an army vehicle.

Last August, a YouTube video showing the repeated use by police of a Taser gun on Albert shocked nationalist politicians as well as some leftist human rights activists. Police claimed the video was doctored and falsified the number of times Albert was tased.

Albert also is a symbol for many Israelis of a wild-eyed settler who puts God above the law. He has been quoted by Arutz Sheva as saying that during a stay in jail, he refused to be released because “every single second was part of the statement that the divine order is above the (IDF) commander’s order.”

The Gilad farm also has served as a symbol of the determination of Jews to remain in their community deposited dozens of raids  and demolition by police, but for anti-nationalists, it is a symbol of  an “illegal” outpost. The farm’s residents insist their community is on land that was privately owned by Gilda’s father Moshe Zar, who was a member of the Jewish Underground in the early 1980s and was sentenced to three years in jail. The elder Zar was known to have purchased land from Arabs, many of whom claim  that the purchases were phony

The cases of Albert and the Gilad Farm are those in which no one seems to be right and everyone seems to be wrong.

The police have repeatedly crossed all red lines of human rights in pre-dawn demolitions, often expelling young mothers and new-born babies in cold weather and then humiliating them by bulldozing homes and bringing in Arabs to walk away with anything that is usable.

Settlers also have been accused of constant violence against Arabs and police, and dozens of police officers were injured in one melee more than 10 years ago.

Below is video of the arrest of Albert, when police used a Taser gun on him.

Disgraced

Thursday, December 19th, 2013

Here’s Rabbi Motti Elon walking away from the Magistrate Court in Jerusalem, December 18, 2013, after hearing his verdict. Elon, former head of Yeshivat Hakotel in Jerusalem, was convicted of sexually assaulting two of his former students, in 2003 and 2005, and sentenced with 6 months of community service, 6 months suspended sentence and a payment of a little under $3,000 to his victims.

Alone he walks into the snow covered street, with his delusions of grandeur, a living lesson about hubris and pride.

He told reporters that he’s happy do do community service, since he’d been doing just that—community service—for 40 years.

In his own head, he’s done nothing wrong. A martyr, persecuted by a repressive system.

I bless him that while he endows his new flock with cleaner toilets, it will dawn on him one day that at some point his path had led him over the cliff.

Israel Police Ban Taser Guns Until Further Notice

Sunday, August 18th, 2013

In response to the shocking video of Israeli police repeatedly zapping a passive, non-resisting Boaz Albert with a Taser gun, police chief Yochanan Danino has ordered a temporary halt to the use of the weapon.

Danino has ordered the review of the weapon and how the police use it. Until the review is completed, all use of the weapon is frozen.

The decision was made after the court determined that there was absolutely no need for the massive and repeated use of the Taser gun on Thursday by the police against the helpless victim.

Israeli Police Caught Violently Attacking Settler in Graphic Video

Friday, August 16th, 2013

A Petach Tikva court has ordered the immediate release of Boaz Albert of Yitzhar.

Albert, a father of 6, had received an administrative order to stay out of the Shomron and away from his home in Yitzhar, but he illegally returned to be with his family and tend to his vineyard. The family has not been told why there is an adminstrative order distancing him from his home and the Shomron.

The police occasionally use distancing orders against Jews in the Shomron without explanation and based on secret evidence. It is almost impossible to fight these orders once given.

Overnight, police burst into the Albert home and violently beat him up, shocked him multiple times with a taser gun, and arrested him, even as he did not resist at all.

The “Yassam” police attacked him in front of his children who were traumatized by what they say.

Despite Albert being completely passive and not resisting arrest, as well as begging them to stop, the police shocked him multiple times with the taser gun.

In the video below, you can hear, once removed from the house, how the police resume tasering Boaz Albert, as neighbors yell out to the police to stop as he isn’t doing anything.

Condition of Israeli Injured by Arab Terrorists Worsens

Sunday, May 5th, 2013

An Israeli man injured by Arabs on Saturday night has been upgraded to serious condition and moved onto a respirator.

Settlers were protesting the rapidly deteriorating security situation in their area, at the Doar Junction near Talmonim, on Saturday night.

As if to prove the point, Arabs from nearby villages came up with clubs and stones and attacked the Israelis, fracturing the skull of one of them, and injuring others.

The seriously  injured man (50) from the town of Neriah, was taken to Tel Hashomer Hospital, where his situation has apparently gotten worse.

Tehillim can be said for Aharon Ben Golda.

Earlier on Saturday, two other Israelis were attacked by Arabs near Dolev, and they also suffered injuries and were taken to the hospital.
