Same Old Games: After Condemning Jewish Violence Friday, Security Forces Permit it on Saturday 

 

Rabbis for Human Rights: One day after the Israeli security forces condemned murderous violence against Palestinians,  they protect violent settlers near Qusra.  

 

On Saturday violent far-right activists came from the outpost of Esh Kodesh (“Holy Fire”) to a plot of land cultivated by Palestinian farmers from the village of Qusra. The area is classified “Area B”  and is under  Palestinian civilian control. There is no Israeli administered “state land” present, and there is no legitimate debate regarding ownership of the land the Palestinians  were attempting to work on. Despite it being Shabbat, the right-wing extremists attacked Palestinian farmers in front of Israeli army soldiers, preventing the farmers from completing their agriculture work.  The situation developed into a violent confrontation, and the soldiers present did not try to stop the right-wing extremists, but rather offered them protection.  Later, after the situation had de-escalated, a member of the police attacked Palestinians with a taser gun without cause.

 

 

 

RHR opposes any form of violence while condemning the Israeli security forces’ actions of tacitly permitting violence against Palestinian farmers by Jewish extremists. This behavior is especially egregious since it occurred in Area B.  Only one day after the shocking murder of a Palestinian toddler in the village of Duma, the army’s refusal to respond appropriately to violence by Jewish extremists demonstrates that no lessons have been learned as a result of Ali’s death. Israeli authorities must act decisively and strongly against Jewish violence and terror.

 

While it is natural that the security forces may identify more with their own people, procedures regarding law enforcement in situations involving violent Israelis must be clearly laid out and consistently implemented.

    Thank you so much for your misleading report which has generated a lot more hate against Israel and your own people. Soon there will be no Israel and the Zionists will be gone. Keep up the great work!!!

  3. Definitely believe that which you stated.
    Your favorite reason seemed to be on the web the easiest thing to be aware of.
    I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while
    people think about worries that they just don’t know
    about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out
    the whole thing without having side-effects , people can take a signal.
    Will likely be back to get more. Thanks
