Israeli police officers clash with protesters at the expulsion of Amona residents in 2006.

A Jerusalem court handed down a sentence of six months of community service, without a jail sentence, to a policeman convicted of a brutal beating of a protester during the expulsion of residents of Amona in 2006.

Even the judge, Moti Polik, criticized the prosecution for not demanding a harsher sentence for the policemen Moti Mahagar.

IT took nine years before Israel’s screwy judicial system finally handed down the sentence, a year after the conviction and nine years after the crime.

Mahagar would not have been indicted if it weren’t for a video that showed him relentlessly using a club to beat victims entrenched in buildings during the expulsion in Samaria.

Oh yes, Mahagar also was scalped with a fine, a grand total of $7819.53 (30,000 shekels), according to today’s official exchange rate.

  1. Having been at Amona and subsequently spending 5 days in hospital from injuries, this latest is a travesty of our justice system. no wonder the young people/adults who were there or have grown up with this and the Gush Katif expulsion (of which I was also present) have led to diminished trust in the government, the IDF and the police, especially the latter who were brutal beyond anything and a lot of quasi Jews amongst them. the price for these two event is yet to be payed by us in general.
