Israeli terrorists, born in the U.S.A.

By SARA YAEL HIRSCHHORN September 4th 2015 Jerusalem —

ON July 31, in the West Bank village of Duma, 18-month-old Ali Dawabsheh was burned alive in a fire. All available evidence suggests that the blaze was a deliberate act of settler terrorism. More disturbingly, several of the alleged instigators, currently being detained indefinitely, are not native-born Israelis — they have American roots.

But there has been little outcry in their communities. Settler rabbis and the leaders of American immigrant communities in the West Bank have either played down their crime or offered muted criticism.

It’s worth recalling the response of the former prime minister Yitzhak Rabin to another heinous attack two decades ago, when an American-born doctor, Baruch Goldstein, gunned down dozens of Palestinians while they prayed in Hebron.
Mr. Rabin said this about Goldstein's roots at the Knesset in February 1994:
“He grew in a swamp whose murderous sources are found here, and across the sea; they are foreign to Judaism, they are not ours. You are a foreign implant. You are an errant weed. Sensible Judaism spits you out.”

The shocking 1994 massacre was, at the time, the bloodiest outbreak of settler terrorism Israelis and Palestinians had ever seen. Less than two years later, Mr. Rabin himself would be dead, felled by an ultranationalist assassin’s bullet.

Suddenly, a group of American Jewish immigrants that had existed on the fringes of society became a national pariah. A former president of Israel, Chaim Herzog, labeled the United States “a breeding ground” for Jewish terror; the daily newspaper Maariv castigated American Jews who “send their lunatic children to Israel.” One Israeli journalist even demanded “operative steps against the Goldsteins of tomorrow” by banning the immigration of militant American Jews.

But tomorrow has arrived.

After years of impunity for settlers who commit violent crimes, Israel’s internal security agency, the Shin Bet, has now supposedly cracked down by rounding up a grand total of four youths believed to be connected to recent acts of settler terrorism — three of whom trace their origins to the United States.

The agency’s “most wanted” Jewish extremist is 24-year-old Meir Ettinger, who has an august pedigree in racist and violent circles. He is a grandson of Meir Kahane, a radical American rabbi who in 1971 immigrated to Israel, established the Kach party and served as its lone Knesset member until it was banned in 1988. (Kahane was assassinated in New York in 1990, but his career laid the groundwork for ultranationalist and antidemocratic parties in Israel.)

Another is Mordechai Meyer, 18, from the settlement of Maale Adumim outside Jerusalem. He is the son of American immigrants who claimed he simply wanted to study the Torah and have an adventure in the West Bank. Another American settler, Ephraim Khantsis, was detained for threatening Shin Bet agents in court. The fourth, Eviatar Slonim, is the child of Australian Jews.

Mr. Ettinger, Mr. Meyer and Mr. Khantsis join a long list of settler extremists with American roots. A Brooklyn-born settler, Era Rapaport, played a prominent role in the car-bombing of the mayor of Nablus in 1980. In 1982, a Baltimore transplant, Alan Goodman, opened fire at the Dome of the Rock, killing two Palestinians and wounding 11. That same year, a former Brooklynite, Yoel Lerner, was jailed for leading a movement to overthrow the Israeli government and blow up the Temple Mount.

These days, rabbis like the St. Louis-born Yitzhak Ginsburg, who heads a yeshiva in the radical settlement of Yizhar, are inculcating the next generation.

Today, according to American government sources and several other studies, an estimated 12 to 15 percent of settlers (approximately 60,000 people) hail from the United States. This disproportionately large American contingent — relative to the total number of American-Israelis — has joined secular, religious and ultra-Orthodox Israelis, and other more recent immigrants. Few of them live in extremist hilltop outposts; a majority live in suburbanized settlements near Jerusalem, but they are considered among the most highly ideological.

RATHER than quoting the Bible or rhapsodizing about a messianic vision, they tend to describe their activities in the language of American values and idealism — as an opportunity to defend human rights and live in the “whole land of Israel” — often over a cup of Starbucks coffee in their boxy aluminum prefab houses or in the mansions of settlement suburbia. To them, living in the West Bank is pioneering on the new frontier; it’s merely an inconvenience that they’re often staking their claims on private Palestinian land. And for a fanatical fringe among them, this Wild West analogy has extended to indiscriminate violence.

When Mordechai Meyer’s parents held a news conference denouncing their son’s detention, they declared that “we are United States citizens and our children grew up there, in a democracy. And we made aliyah from the United States to a democratic state.” Now, they complained, we “find ourselves with our son in jail and do not know anything.” The Meyers are right that indefinite administrative detention is antidemocratic, but it’s highly ironic that they would focus on the illiberal tendencies of Israel’s criminal justice system to distract attention from their son’s alleged crimes. (After all, we don’t hear settlers complaining when hundreds of Palestinians are indefinitely detained under the same law.)

For all their protestations that they are good liberals, many American settler leaders have been deafeningly silent on recent acts of Jewish terrorism. If these American immigrants believe that violence is a betrayal of cherished values, then why have their rabbis not held news conferences loudly denouncing the terrorists in their own communities and families? Where are their op-eds in American and Israeli newspapers condemning violent Jewish extremism?

For four decades, their condemnation has often been either muted or tempered by attempts to play down Jewish terrorism by framing it as an issue of “understanding the context” — a euphemism for reacting to Palestinian violence. And while there is absolutely no justification for Palestinian terrorism, it is not enough for Jews to preach to Palestinians that moderates must speak out, murderers must be cast out, and incitement must be stopped without taking the same aggressive steps within their own communities.

American Jews at home and abroad can no longer condone these blind spots and damning silences when it comes to Jewish extremism in Israel. It is the obligation of all who seek peace and justice to take up Mr. Rabin’s clarion call to spit out the terrorists and their sympathizers in our midst.

Quite psychopathic behaviour:
15yo Palestinian child and his 13 yo cousin from Jerusalem were rammed by a settler car
Even with police and medics around the injured boy received absolutely no assistance - nothing. Instead he is actually kicked (1:57) by a police officer as he attempts to gingerly sit up.

The slain Palestinian child has been identified as Hasan Khaled Manasra, 15 years of age, while his cousin Ahmad Saleh Manasra, 13, suffered a serious injury. They are both from Beit Hanina, in Jerusalem.

While the child was bleeding to death, Israelis surrounded him, shouting at him in a mix of Arabic and Hebrew, including demands the police shoot him.
The officers did not shoot him, but left him bleeding with head injuries, broken legs and other serious injuries on the ground. The boy was able to raise his head a few times, but the police officers kicked him back down until he bled to death.
The slain Palestinian child has been identified as Hasan Khaled Manasra, 15 years of age, while his cousin Ahmad Saleh Manasra, 13, suffered a serious injury. They are both from Beit Hanina, in Jerusalem.

The incident took place near Pisgat Zeev Israeli settlement, in occupied Jerusalem. The police claimed that the boys stabbed two settlers, wounding them.
A settler who chased the boys with his car also rammed Ahmad. But the police presented no evidence to connect the two children with the crime that they claimed the boys committed.

The following are some of the insults and curses hurled at the seriously wounded child before he died:
“Die you fucker, die you son of a whore, die you son of a bitch…”
“Shoot him in the head, this son of a bitch”
“Die you son of a whore”
“Die you son of a bitch”
“Shoot him in the head, shoot him in the head!”
“Shoot him in the head, do him a favour”

The police eventually approached the Israelis, including the one who apparently was filming, and “asked them not to approach.”

Palestinian Presidency spokesperson, Nabil Abu Rodeina, said the execution of the child is an ugly Israeli crime committed by Israel in violation of every legal and humanitarian law, and demanded the apprehension of those responsible for his death.
He added that “If Israel continues its policies and violations, the entire region will reach a situation that cannot be contained, and everybody will pay a high price for that.”

In addition, Israeli authorities have been revealed on several occasions to have lied about the Palestinians they have killed – claiming falsely that the Palestinians had been attempting to stab or attack Israelis, but eyewitness and video evidence disproved this claim in a number of cases.

http://www.imemc.org/article/73371

Here is the NewYork times version. See if you can see how this fits with video above.
The lying newspaper presumably didn't know there was video of how he actually died.
In one, a 13-year-old Israeli boy in Pisgat Zeev, a Jewish area of East Jerusalem, was riding his bicycle when two Palestinians from a nearby neighborhood stabbed him, wounding him critically, according to the police. The assailants, cousins 13 and 15, also severely wounded a 25-year-old man.

The younger attacker was injured as he tried to flee, apparently hit by a car, according to the police. Officers fatally shot the elder one, the police said, when he charged at them with a knife and ignored calls to stop.

Israeli Jews pin woman on the ground, kick her in the face then arrest her
http://news.groopspeak.com/israeli-citi ... ace-video/

This is what Israeli society has become … a racist, fascist society where if you’re not Jewish – you’re not welcome. What’s shown in the video happened in Haifa which the international community considers part of occupied Palestine. In the past few couple of weeks – 30 Palestinians have died (and counting) while 5 Israeli Jews have died. Every one of their lives was special, but the only wants that really count in Israeli society are the Jewish lives. It is said that this young Palestinian woman was having an argument with a taxi driver where she was detained by Israeli Jews; as she has her hands tied behind her back unable to move and clearly posing no threat to anyone in the crowd – someone kicks her directly in the face. After she gets kicked in the face – she gets arrested. This is symbolic of every Palestinian who is living under Israeli military rule.

They hate you because you burn their infants and their olive trees; because you bulldoze their houses one by one, and bomb them 100 by 100. Because you divert their water resources. Because you shoot their children and youth execution style for no reason. Because you imprison their children for throwing stones or posting on facebook. Because you use white phosphorous. Because they can not even leave. Because you blackmail their young gay men into becoming collaborators. Because you plant knives next to the bodies of their murdered/executed children. Because you assassinate their journalists and destroy their radio stations in order to attempt to keep the world from knowing about your evil behaviour. Because you have AIPAC and others attempt to criminalize BDS or criticism of israel everywhere. And for hundreds of other reasons too numerous to mention. But that is why you are hated. Not because you are 'Jewish'.
Imagine taking a chunk of rotting corpse from a stagnant sewer, placing it in a blender and spraying the filthy liquid in your face. Your gag reflex goes off the charts and you can't escape, because the nauseating stench persists for days. This is "skunk"...

http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/09/ ... qO6KGeB.99
Israeli forces routinely douse entire Palestinians neighborhoods in skunk water, deliberately spraying it into private homes, businesses, schools and funerals in what the Israeli human rights group B’Tselem calls “a collective punitive measure” against Palestinian villages that engage in protest against Israel’s colonial violence.

We recommend that the following measures should be carried out NOW, irrespective of events in France. These measures are confined to those which we consider necessary for the security of this country against attack during the critical period that may arise in the next few months:—
(iii) The most ruthless action should be taken to eliminate any chances of "Fifth Column" activities. Internment of all enemy aliens and all members of subversive organisations, which latter should be proscribed.
(iv) Alien refugees are a most dangerous source of subversive activity. We recommend that the number of refugees admitted to this country should be cut to the minimum and that those admitted should be kept under the closest surveillance.
Pg. 4
REPORT BY THE CHIEFS OF STAFF COMMITTEE. May 25, 1940
http://filestore.nationalarchives.gov.u ... 168-48.pdf
In other words, the "ruthless action to eliminate" the percieved threat of an ethnic minority of your own citizens AND of neighborouring countries is something the British actually did.
In other words internment of people purely based on their ethnic origin, who are considered by a war government to be potential "fifth columnists" when it is carried out by a country we have declared war against (Germany) is to be compulsorily regarded as the worst racist crime in the history of mankind for ever more.
But if 'we' do it, no-one should mention it ever again.

Country bans novel featuring interacial romance, because they say it threatens their own perceived pure and superior racial identity

“...“Young people of adolescent age tend to romanticising and don’t, in many cases, have the systemic vision that includes considerations involving maintaining the identity of the people and the significance of assimilation.”.”
Racial purity?
Übermensch laws?
Who would be allowed to get away with that after all the conditioning we have been subjected to after winning WW2??

Check it out:

Hmmm? Too bad you didn't follow the link. 'They' bought it after the Ferguson riot.

Hmmmm? Er...Too bad also that you apparently didn't really consider and/or comment on what it must be like to have a police force that sprays that into into your home, office, and at you when you are attending a funeral, for nothing more than just because they can and just because of your perceived race/religion and because of where you live.
I wouldn't like that to happen to ANYONE, but I hope you will agree that it will be a perhaps just desert and bitter irony if you should unhappily be targeted by your own police force in such a way for unfortunately living in an area where such future US police spraying occurs.

Spraying innocent Palestinians with Skunk Water is an abomination. Spraying rioters in Ferguson and Baltimore would have been a delightful spectacle.
