AL-KHALIL/HEBRON: Israeli soldiers assault unarmed Palestinian teenager, threaten rape. Youth remains committed to nonviolence.

by Maureen Jack

At 4:30 pm on Monday 13 July 2009, two Israeli soldiers attacked a sixteen-year-old Palestinian boy 150 yards from his home in the Tel Rumeida area of Hebron.

The attack happened as he was walking to his home carrying heavy electrical cables necessary for repair work on his family’s house. Two workers accompanying him left to raise the alarm.

The teenager reported that one particular soldier has often held him for ID checks lasting at least one hour. This soldier and another took his ID and told him to sit on the ground. Initially they made inappropriate sexual comments about the boy and his mother. They then assaulted him, kicking his leg, and hitting him on the neck and back both with their hands and with their rifle butts. He tried to telephone his father but a soldier grabbed the phone from him and hit him with it after removing the battery and SIM card.

When the boy’s mother and cousin arrived, he tried to tell them what had happened. Soldiers told him, “Shut up or I will f*** you,” and threatened to rape the women.

The soldiers then took the youth behind the family’s house, where some Israeli settlers were present. The soldiers cuffed his hands behind his back, blindfolded him, and again forced him to sit. One or more people kicked and hit him again, but because of the blindfold, he could not see whether his attackers were soldiers or settlers.

At this point, his father and friends arrived with video cameras and filmed what was happening. Hearing raised voices, an Israeli army officer arrived. The officer observed that Palestinians were filming the incident, removed the blindfold and handcuffs, and released the boy. However, he gripped him by the jaw and warned him, “If you say anything to internationals or the police, I will kill you.”

That evening, the youth received hospital treatment for his injuries. The next day his father spent four and a half hours at the police station making a complaint, in support of which he passed over video of the incident.

The youth, who was still limping and in pain two days later, volunteers for the Israeli human rights group B’tselem as a cameraman and has undertaken nonviolence training. Of the incident he remarked, “The soldiers tried to make me angry and violent. But I was so quiet. I was so strong...If we stay in the way of peace, I think we will soon have our freedom,” he said.

It is very possible that volunteering for the Israeli human rights group B’tselem as a cameraman resulted in special treatment for the teenager.

Part of the goal of terrorists is to oblige armies to treat everybody as a potential terrorist precisely to create resentment - which thier cheerleaders and acomplices (thats you NF) can bleat about to gullible idiots.

Still - it would be a very different story indeed if it had been an Israeli teenager ufortuate enough to fall into the hands of any Arab army or police force or civilians.

Apparently, the Israelis are making sure - through
the implementation of a well conceived Palestinian
apartied operation - that support remains strong
for hamas...thus perpetuation a justification for
the settlements....the whole things stinks like
a fresh cat turd, and is costing America mucho $$$
due to it's ongoing support of the Israeli aparteid system.
