Video: Scenes from a bloody Sunday in Palestine

Israel/Palestine
on 63 Comments

Two horrendous videos emerged from Hebron over this past deadly weekend. In one, after a 14-year-old girl was gunned down in the street, an ambulance waits right next to her as she bleeds and writhe on the ground, but soldiers prevent her from being moved. In the other video, a soldier is recorded callously pushing over a disabled Palestinian man in a wheelchair.

Ma’an news reports that “local Palestinian sources” said the girl, 14-year-old Yasmin Rashad al-Zarou, was walking past a military checkpoint with her sister when Israeli soldiers shot her a few meters after she’d crossed the checkpoint. She was walking away from the checkpoint when they fired at her. An Israeli police spokesperson said Israeli forces had shot at al-Zarou after an “alleged attempted stabbing attack”, however, there was no mention of who she allegedly tried to stab.

The other incident, again in Hebron, occurred after Israeli forces shot and seriously wounded 14-year-old Yasmin A-Tamimi, after she reportedly “drew a knife, tried to stab one of the officers at the roadblock”. As Palestinians approached the scene an Israeli officer pushed a disable man in his wheelchair to the ground.

Israeli Trooper Filmed Pushing Disabled Palestinian to the Ground

A video documenting the moments after the attack shows Israeli forces pushing away and shouting at the Palestinians approaching the scene. After a few minutes, a Border Police officer is seen pushing a wheelchair-bound man to the ground, and his head hits the pavement. Several Palestinians approach, and the video shows another officer trying to kick another Palestinian away. Then it seems as if a stun grenade is thrown, and the Palestinians are seen running away…….

A Border Police spokesperson said that the video has been given to the Justice Ministry department for the investigation of police officers, which has launched an investigation.

      The Israelis must be stopped by outside forces. IDF has morphed into storm troopers. The tragic clarity of this is an assault of the human spirit. As the Israeli psychosis spreads one wonders how Germany and the US can continue to remain silent.

        Germany, well at least Angela Merkel, has spoken and she sounds an awful lot like a sell out.

        From the Times of israel

        ‘Now is certainly not the time to make really comprehensive progress,’ says German chancellor

        Merkel: Now’s not the time for major progress to Palestinian state

        German leader’s position dovetails with that of visiting PM, who heaps scorn on ‘bizarre’ French peace proposal

        By Raphael Ahren February 16, 2016, 6:22 pm 25

        BERLIN — The current climate in the Middle East does not allow for major steps toward the creation of a Palestinian state, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said here Tuesday, calling instead for small steps to safeguard a future two-state solution for the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

        “Now is certainly not the time to make really comprehensive progress, but you can achieve improvements in certain places,” she said at a joint press conference with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

        “The European Union, and Germany as a member state, is very concerned about seeing things realistically,” Merkel said. “We know the threat of terrorism that Israel has to endure. We believe, on the other hand, that we have to advance a process of peaceful coexistence, and this, according to our opinion, is ultimately built on a two-state solution.”

        Berlin is ready to help with any steps Israelis and Palestinians can take to advance the cause of peaceful coexistence, she said, “especially regarding questions of economic development.”

        Netanyahu, during a subsequent briefing for the traveling press, hailed Merkel’s statement, arguing that the world has slowly been coming to the same realization he had arrived at long ago. “When I said it a year ago, everyone came out and attacked me viciously,” he said. “Today we hear same things from the leaders of the world, not only from [US President Barack] Obama [who has stated he no longer believes Israeli-Palestinian peace can be achieved in the coming months] and Merkel. Even the leader of the opposition [in Israel, Isaac Herzog] understands it now.”

        There is need to take certain steps, however, to calm the situation on the ground, Netanyahu told a handful of reporters who covered his one-day trip to the German capital. “It is in our interest to fight terror in the West Bank and also in the Gaza Strip, and one way of doing this is to stabilize an improve the situation for the population on the ground.”

        During the press conference, Netanyahu rejected a French initiative for a regional conference to discuss the stalled peace process, arguing that the move was doomed to failure and that bilateral negotiations to peace are the only path to Palestinian statehood.

        Earlier in the day, French Ambassador Patrick Maisonnaive met in Jerusalem with Foreign Ministry political director Alon Ushpiz to present Paris’s plan, first announced by then-foreign minister Laurent Fabius, to convene a regional peace conference. If the conference fails to lead to a significant advancement toward the two-state solution, France will unilaterally recognize Palestinian statehood, Fabius had threatened.

        Responding to a question by The Times of Israel, Netanyahu said he found the French proposal “bizarre.”

        “It says: We will hold an international conference but if you do not succeed we are already predetermining the result – we will recognize a Palestinian state,” he said.

        The initiative does not take into account several issues of crucial importance to Israel, Netanyahu lamented. “It does not matter. We will determine that there is a state, without any conditions regarding recognition, security or anything,” he said sarcastically.

        On a more serious note, he added: “Of course this ensures that this conference will fail because if the Palestinians know that their demand will be met a priori, and they do not need to do anything, then there is certainly an internal contradiction here, because they will not do anything. There is one way to advance peace – direct negotiations without preconditions between the sides. This is the true way, and I think that anyone who tries to deviate from it will not advance successful negotiations.”

        Netanyahu denied that the EU’s foreign policy chief, Federica Mogherini, had spoken with him about a planned report containing suggestions on how to jump-start the peace process.

        On Saturday, Mogherini wrote on her blog that she had discussed such a plan with Netanyahu and PA President Mahmoud Abbas, “who assured to me their willingness to engage in this new process.”

        Netanyahu said Jerusalem’s relations with the EU were improving, citing a recent conversation with Mogherini in which the two tried to mitigate the tension over Brussels’s decision to label West Bank goods.

        “The State of Israel has to be treated fairly. We are not the root cause of the problems of the Middle East. We are an important part of the solution,” he said. “If Israel weren’t there, the Middle East’s entire western part would be flooded by the forces of Islamist fanaticism. Together with this flood, many millions more [refugees] would come to Europe. Israel is Western civilization’s iron wall in the heart of the Middle East.”

        @Marnie: Germany, well at least Angela Merkel, has spoken and she sounds an awful lot like a sell out.

        Well it seems it is all an act. US/UK/EU/UN pretends that they believe the zionists when they say they want peace, but deep down they know it all zio bull, so they stall and mark time for them, so that the nazios can complete stealing all Palestinian lands and resources, which should be quite soon.
        They they will play the “Oye Vey nothing can be done for the Palestinians anymore card”.

        Even if Merkel brought this subject up, the Butcher of Tel Aviv, would have reminded her that Germany owes the Jews so much, and remind her yet again of the holocaust. A reprimanded Merkel would then shut up. Those who still believe that the Palestinians will one day have their own state, is simply being naive. Time for the world to face reality.

        Speaking of tyrannical delusionary idiocy – coupled with Zio-supremacist hatefulness and immorality – there’s no reason it should be the job of Israeli soldiers to engage in and/or enable the theft, occupation and colonization of land outside of Israel’s / Partition borders and the oppression, torture and murder of non-Jewish Israelis and non-Israelis.

        || … So, which morally superior military force is going to attack israel to physically ‘stop’ them from living in their nation? … ||

        Except that Israelis aren’t just “living in their nation” – they’re also living in the non-Israeli land (outside of Israel’s / Partition borders) that they’ve been stealing, occupying and colonizing for almost 70 years.

    Comments at TOI (I think it was) were saying that the guy in the wheelchair deserved his treatment because he has been at several demonstrations. They they also pointed out that the girl is being treated in an Israeli hospital. No one thought they was anything wrong with pushing the wheelchair over, in fact one man said that they should have shot everyone and not left witnesses. Democracy!

      These are the people who brown their pants because Palestinians in Gaza call Israeli Jews “Jews”. And yet they think it’s fine to get up for all to see and spew their ridiculous, evil filth about Palestinians and Lebanese people and indeed Arabs and non-Jewish Middle Easterners in general.

      • kalithea
        February 16, 2016, 12:24 pm

        What exactly do you mean by stepping up??? They are attacking young girls and recently killed two others. And they’ve shot little girls multiple times.

        What possible excuse could there be for murdering and attempting to murder young girls? How does a young girl pose a threat to a fully armed IDF soldier? And do they have to shoot to kill? The truth is that these girls are the future. They will marry and have babies; but the murdered girls won’t, will they? This is the real reason for murdering young Palestinian girls.

        Killing a young Palestinian girl is an opportunity that doesn’t come along every day for them, so, shoot to kill! Is there a change in how they view Palestinian women? No, they still view them as less than human.

      Being vicious is part of the zionist psyche. It is sickening that the zionists keep justifying the killing of civilians citing “attempted stabbings”, which knowing what liars they are, are highly suspicious. In the land of zionists, it seems anything their leaders or military says, is acceptable.
      The difference in the way they handle their people versus these poor Palestinian kids is not only obvious, but deplorable.

        Palestinians with knives isn’t a plot – it’s what happens when hateful and immoral Zio-supremacists like you spend almost 70 years (and counting) oppressing, dehumanizing, torturing and killing people while stealing, occupying and colonizing their lands.

        I know: Why can’t they just lie back and enjoy it, right? But they don’t, so you keep beating them down – they keep making you beat them down! – and then people say you’re the “bad guy”. And that’s just not fair!

        If you take the Turkish flotilla case – the lying zios first made out that (even after their masked thugs jumped from helicopters on the boats) they were attacked first, then they blamed those poor people for their own murders, they confiscated all videos to erase their violence, then they went on to doctor audio tapes (which they admitted afterwards).

Clearly he doesn’t know how to use such words as ‘alleged’, or border police ‘claim’ etc. This great ‘moral army’ – I’m assuming they claim the same for their police – can’t even disarm a fourteen-year-old girl? Unbelievably despicable. Yet, we have to feel sorry for their ugliness: they can’t be very happy; I suppose that’s what comes from being told that everyone hates you from a very young age.

      Platosguns lifted the “article” about the supposed letter from Clinton to Saban from a site called “The Mideast Beast”.

      Here:

      http://www.themideastbeast.com/clinton-to-donor-in-next-war-i-will-let-israel-kill-200000-not-just-2000-gazans/

      Here is the first paragraph from “The Mideast Beast”‘s “about” page:

      The Mideast Beast (TMB) is a satire and (dark) comedy news site that produces spoof articles about or connected to the entire Middle East for comedic and entertainment purposes. We poke at anyone and everyone.

      Whatever you read on TMB is totally fictitious and you should not take us seriously in any way, shape, or form. Clear? Good. Moving on…

      I know the temptation to make Clinton out to be the vilest of all viles, but if people can’t recognize an “Onion” type piece of satire when they read it, then they have obviously gone way overboard.

      • tree

        The more I read “The Mideast Beast” the more it sounds like a satire site with a decidedly Zionist bent, BTW. Markedly soft on Israel, and harsh in the satire against those who criticize it.

        Try reading this satiric article from the website:

        Israel Defense Force Commits Crimes Against Israeli Population, says Attorney

        or this:

        Israel is ‘Criminal State’

        The human rights group “We know nothing about the Middle East” or WKNATME has accused Israel’s government of being a criminal organization. 

“Being a democracy and providing a high-standard of living just cannot be done via legitimate means,” said Sandy Guinness who makes coffee for the teenager that runs their website from a truck stop café outside Dublin. “Israel is mostly Jewish, therefore mostly corrupt. Look, I don’t believe the whole ‘drinking the blood of Palestinian children’ thing but they definitely sell their organs. I read it about it on the Internet.”

        or this one:

        Radical Offshoot of Human Rights Watch Sends Strike Team to Nepal to Assassinate Victims Saved by Israel

        or this:

        Al Jazeera America to Shut Down, Citing “Not Enough Anti-Semites in U.S.”

        An elderly disabled Jewish wheelchair-bound man was victimized decades ago, so it was okay for the IDF thug to push over a Palestinian in a wheelchair this week.

        Also, Anne Frank died when she was a teenager, so it was okay for the IDF to murder this Palestinian girl. Which is why it is okay for anyone to kill anyone, at any time. Right?

        Bring up a solitary example of something that happened nearly thirty years ago to try and distract from the widespread abuse of Palestinians, able-bodied or otherwise, by the Israeli occupation forces, especially if there’s photos of videos of that abuse in action.

        Your idiotic non-sequitur aside, what would your excuse be if it turned out that the man your IDF thug flipped over died when he hit his head? I’m curious in kind of a sick way.

    Adolf and his Nazi cohorts did have a hang up about disabled people, even Aryans , and “took steps” to deal with the “problem”. This included forced sterilisation ( Ethiopian Jews – ring a bell ? )

    Hopefully the message will go out to those non-Jewish disabled people who are planning to visit the Land of Creation that the most moral,light unto the nations and all that crap have inbred Nazi type contempt for the disabled. Additionally I hope that details of this incident gets spread amongst the disabled sports bodies throughout the world who are considering taking part in Israeli organised competitions or inviting their Israeli counterparts to take part in theirs and will lead to boycotts.

Sounds to me that we have a new libretto for such an opera “The humilation fo Majid al-Fakhouri at Hebron”, the chorus will be heavy weaponed Israeli Border policemen whining about the attrocities against them forced by14year old Palestinian grils.

    Someone on Twitter said that the guy who pushed the wheelchair over was a Druze. If that’s the case then he could be thrown under the bus, just so that Israel can say “hey, we punished him, aren’t we great!”

    “—-Justice Ministry department for the investigation of police officers, which has launched an investigation.” And we can expect them to ’round up the usual suspects’ and ‘exact justice on the perpetrators’ .

    Why do the Israelis even bother to put out this bull*%&t? Who, but the most self-deluding morons, really take this stuff seriously?

      Why do you bother getting out of bed, @MaxNarr, if this is the best you can produce for your employers? In the Ziopathic fantasies of many Israeli leaders, including Mr. M. and most (?all?) of the present Cabinet, Hebron is in the mythic “Eretz Israel”, encompassing the whole of the West Bank and Gaza; doubtless extending northward to the Euphrates and southward to the Nile (“Why only as far as the Nile?” – Naftali Bennett). To the rest of the world, it’s a major Palestinian town in the illegally-occupied territories.
      Solution to this sort of incident, born or yet-to-be-born: GTF out of Hebron and the rest of the OPT. There would be no military checkpoints for [allegedly knife-wielding] schoolgirls to be shot whilst walking away from them, no “Border Police” to attract pesky, negative PR for abusing disabled people, no hill-toppers needing the most moral army in the world’s protection to move around a segregated Hebron – the benefits are almost boundless. Simple enough for you and @Herchel to understand? Glad to be of service…

        Don’t you ever forget that Jews were ethnically cleansed from their homes in Hebron in the 1920s, we have returned, and we are NEVER leaving.

        1. Nothing – note even the right of Jews who were ethnically-cleansed from Hebron in the 1920s to return to Hebron – constitutes a right for all people in the world who happen to be Jewish to occupy and colonize all of Mandate Palestine.

        2. You are going to be the saddest ever Zio-supremacist when your religion-supremacist “Jewish State” that’s NEVER ever going to collapse collapses. :-(

        “we have returned, and we are NEVER leaving.” Maxnurd

        Now where have we heard that before.

        “Thousands of Israeli troops evicted Jewish settlers from the Gaza Strip today amid anger, grief and isolated acts of violence.

        The actual removals – which have seen troops dragging some settlers out kicking and screaming – have taken place amid high emotion but little physical confrontation.

        But three people were killed this afternoon when an Israeli man opened fire on Palestinians he was driving to their jobs in a West Bank settlement unaffected by the pullout.”

        Tell us max , are you one of the squatters [..] drag you kicking and screaming off the land you stole .The thought certainly a pleasant ring to it.

        “amigo”, I’ve tried and tried. They just won’t visit the “Wailing Wahl“.

        Feh, maybe they think they are hippies. Who knows?

        hostage:

        A little later on in 1923, Jabotinsky representing the right wing Zionists publicly wrote about the absolute necessity of using an iron wall of British or Jewish bayonets against the Palestinians in order to facilitate the Zionist colonial enterprise and the dismemberment of the other “still living nation” that inhabited the land. Members of Betar, Ahdut Ha’avodah, and Histradut subsequently staged a paramilitary propaganda march on the Western Wall on Tisha B’Av. They were carrying Jewish national flags and singing the Zionist anthem Ha-Tikvah. Given the fact that the raison d’etre of this march was to put on a provocative display of Zionist triumphalism (and xenophobia) it is small wonder that it triggered extreme animosity. The desecration led to a huge counter-demonstration by the Muslims. Martin Buber and the members of Brith Shalom said that the Zionist demonstrations had clearly violated the status quo and that it was widely perceived as the catalyst for the ensuing 1929 riots. Buber and the Brith Shalom were publicly excoriated, for providing an accurate analysis of the situation. Richard Goldstone got the modern version of the Brith Shalom treatment. –

        here’s more:

        BTW, the US State Department report on the 1929 Hebron massacre is cataloged under the title 867n.404Wailing Wall/6: Telegram The Consul General at Jerusalem (Knabenshue) to the Secretary of State, August 25, 1929.

        In an earlier Wailing Wall Telegram from the Consul General at Jerusalem, 867n.404Walling Wall/5, he advised the Secretary of State that:

        It is my opinion that the Moslem attacks were precipitated by provocative acts of the Jews and that disturbances throughout the whole country will rapidly become general and brigandage will become rife if adequate forces are not rushed here from Egypt. I request a telegraphic acknowledgment.

        — See Papers relating to the foreign relations of the United States, 1929, page 47

        We’ve all witnessed the Zionist nut cases today marching to the Western Wall singing and chanting about butchering the Arabs.

      @MaxNarr, “never” is such a long time, habibi…… I’m an optimist & am fixing on living for at least another 10 or 15 years, destiny permitting; I believe I may live to see the end of the Occupation – or, at least, the beginning of the end. I read once or twice about a “Thousand Year Empire”; if memory’s correct, it lasted 12 years.

    No great surprise that the footage begins only a few seconds before it happens… We wouldn’t want the viewer to see what precipitated the incident.

    When children, women and the disabled are used to blow up Jews, Jews are rightfully fearful of children, women and the disabled. This man can thank Hamas and Abbas for his treatment.

      “When children, women and the disabled are used to blow up Jews, Jews are rightfully fearful of children, women and the disabled. This man can thank Hamas and Abbas for his treatment.”

      I don’t suppose you can back your statement up with something called facts and you’re talking about israeli Jews so don’t be so sloppy. I like your logic though, because I believe that the families of every israeli Jew that has been murdered can thank every prime minister of israel for their loss, most notably Benjamin Mileikowsky. Thanks Bibi!

      Yeah I’m sure that dirty wheelchaired man talking to the soldier did something to deserve his abuse. Totally.

      It’s not like the idf has ever committed massacres and dozens of human rights violations.

      Also, are you going to back up your accusations or are you going to disappear like most zionists do when they need to put in more effort than just smearing?

      When Jews are used…
      – to commit acts of terrorism and ethnic cleansing against non-Jews; and
      – to oppress, torture and kill non-Jews,
      …non-Jews are rightfully fearful of Jews. Jewish people can thank Zio-supremacists like you for their treatment.
