Prosecution Objects to Arab Petition to Demolish Homes of ‘Jewish Terrorists’

Wednesday, September 14th, 2016

The state prosecution on Wednesday announced its intent to object to a petition to the High Court submitted by the father of the Arab boy Mohammed Abu Khdeir who was murdered by three Jews in 2014. The petition requests that the state demolish the homes of the families of Abu Khdeir’s killers, the way it does in cases where Arab terrorists murder Jews.

The prosecution argued that it would be a mistake to treat Jewish and Arab terrorism equally. “Of course, every act of terrorism is unacceptable,” the prosecution wrote in its statement, “but we cannot ignore the gap in the scope of terrorism carried out by Palestinians and eastern Jerusalem Arabs compared with terror which is carried out by Jews.”

The kidnapping and murder of Mohammed Abu Khdeir took place in the early morning of July 2, 2014, one day after the burial of three Israeli teens who had been kidnapped and murdered by Hamas agents. Abu Khdeir, a 16-year-old Arab, was forced into a car by three young Jews on a street in eastern Jerusalem. Police located his charred body a few hours later at Givat Shaul in the Jerusalem Forest. The autopsy results suggested he had been beaten and set on fire while still alive.

The murder was condemned by the families of the three murdered Israeli teens, who sent Abu Khdeir’s family their condolences. PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas blamed the murder on Israel and demanded that Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu condemn it “as we condemned the kidnapping of the three Israelis.” However, when Israel included Abu Khdeir in the Victims of Acts of Terror Memorial at Mount Herzl, his family insisted that his name be removed at once.

In February 4, 2016, two minors who participated in the Abu Khdeir murder were sentenced, one receiving life imprisonment, the other 21 years. The court ruled that their leader was Yosef Haim Ben-David, who was sent for psychiatric evaluation. On February 22, 2016, a court appointed psychiatrist testified that Ben-David was fit to stand trial, and on April 19, 2016 he was found guilty of murder. While awaiting sentencing, Ben David tried to commit suicide in his cell. On May 3, 2016, he was sentenced to life in prison plus 20 years.

Watch B’Tselem Spokeswoman Refusing to Call Hamas a Terrorist Organization [video]

Tuesday, September 6th, 2016

Alan Mendoza, Executive Director of the Henry Jackson Society, interviewed B’Tselem Spokesperson Sarit Michaeli on Monday on J-TV, a new YouTube channel “providing weekly content on Current Affairs, Jewish Wisdom, Movers & Shakers and Jewish Food.” As the conversation progressed, the host pushed Michaeli on the fact that her group devotes much more attention to the Israeli side, while most Arab violations of human rights are given a pass. Michaeli didn’t argue the facts, noting that B’Tselem does condemn major human rights violations by the Arabs in both Gaza and the PA, but that, being an Israeli organization, it is more dedicated to teaching Israelis about wrongs committed by their own government.

At some point, Mendoza asked her if B’Tselem has condemned Hamas as a terrorist organization and Michaeli said that when Hamas attacks Israeli civilians it certainly commits acts of terrorism. Yes, the host insisted, but are they a terrorist organization? Maybe a part-time terrorist organization? No matter how many times he tried, the B’Tselem spokeswoman would not go on the record condemning Hamas as a terrorist group. Instead she accused Mendoza of joining Israeli extremists who wish to associate B’Tselem with anti-Israeli politics. The more he pushed, the more she stuck to repeating that mantra.

Sarit Michaeli was injured by a Border Guard rubber bullet during a riot in which she participated in Nabi Saleh, back in 2013. She actually filmed her own bleeding leg as she was lying on the ground. Being a British person, host Mendoza did not have the DNA to conclude Monday’s encounter with a rubber bullet to the guest’s leg, even if she weren’t calling in on Skype, so he just hung up on her.

Shiloh Musings: Did Elor Azariya Shoot Terrorist Post-Mortem

Sunday, September 4th, 2016

No doubt that this whole story would make great mesmerizing  suspense movie.

In legal twist, expert says terrorist shot in Hebron was already dead
Former chief pathologist says he believes terrorist shot in Hebron in March had expired before Elor Azaria shot him • Findings contradict official autopsy results, as well as Azaria’s version of the event • Testimony could see manslaughter charge revised. (Israel Hayom)

For the past couple of months, the Israeli public has been following the accusations and now trial of Elor Azaria, who when seeing movement of an already shot/injured Arab terrorist dressed in heavy clothing despite the heat, shot him.

A Leftist Arab (terrorists) sympathizer group photographed the scene and publicized it without sound. By muting the sound, viewers can’t hear the shouts cautioning that the injured terrorist maybe boobytrapped, with hidden explosives. Their con worked, and public figures, including the then Minister of Defense, quickly condemned the young soldier.

We all know that one of the signs of a possible terrorist is wearing a coat or jacket in the summer, since outerwear can easily hide bombs strapped to the body. Many Arab terrorists have been caught before managing to activate deadly explosives, because they had been suspected due of their inappropriately heavy jacket.

Unfortunately for Elor Azaria, the Israeli media and Leftist politicians decided to use him to up their standing with the international Left. They have this dangerously fokokt ideology that terrorists are ordinary criminals, who should be given human and legal rights.

And now, out of left field, comes Dr. Yehuda Hiss, whose opinion puts an unexpected surprise on the table. The terrorist’s  movements may have been just muscle twitches that sometimes happen at death. The original shots at the terrorist at the time he was apprehended caused his death, not Elor Azaria’s bullets.

Does it really make a difference? Honestly, this whole trial and witch hunt is a moral travesty of justice. Soldiers in the field, like Elor Azaria and even citizens who find themselves in the midst of terror attacks, should not be held to civilian theoretical standards. And as far as I’m concerned, all Arab terrorists should be executed on the spot and never given civilian criminal trials.

This trial must be stopped and Elor Azaria set free, his record purged.

Former Chief Pathologist: Hebron Terrorist Was Already Dead When Azaria Shot Him

Thursday, September 1st, 2016

Prof. Yehuda Hiss, who was fired from his job as head of the national Forensic Institute by then Deputy Health Minister Yakov Litzman (UTJ), submitted his opinion for the defense Wednesday in the military trial of shooting medic Sgt. Elor Azaria, suggesting “the bullet that hit the terrorist’s head was most likely postmortem.”

Azaria was indicted by the IDF Prosecution for manslaughter for shooting a stabbing terrorist who had already been neutralized and was lying on the ground.

Prof. Hiss’ opinion was written based on the autopsy performed by medical examiner Dr. Hadas Gips, who testified before the same military court in June that the terrorist’s initial wounds, before Azaria shot him in the head, “were not immediately life threatening especially with medical care.” She told the court that “if the terrorist had been given medical treatment, he could have possibly been saved.”

But Israel’s Channel 1 TV News reported Wednesday night that Prof. Hiss’ opinion is that “based on the results of the autopsy and considering the conclusions from the opinion of Prof. Dov Shimon, it is reasonable to assume that the death of the deceased was caused by an acute respiratory failure, combined with an air embolism to the heart and brain, following the damage to the right lung by two bullets. The damage from the bullet that hit the head was, most likely, posthumous.”

Dr. Gips told the court that had the terrorist received treatment even as late as half an hour after the event, he could be saved. She said that what appeared like an air embolism — was not.

The contradiction between the two expert opinions could result in changing the indictment, but not necessarily in an acquittal. The defense may also have to modify its version of events, since to date their claim has been that Azaria saw the terrorist moving before shooting him — although this discrepancy could be explained away with an argument of reflex motion, either by the man on the ground, or by the shooter.

Prof. Hiss is not a well liked figure in Israel, and was fired from his prestigious job at the helm of the Abu Kabir Forensic Institute for mishandling thousands of body parts, some times for pay. According to Ha’aretz, Hiss continued to work for the Justice Ministry and collect his paycheck, which, back in 2015, ranked among the highest for civil servants in Israel.
