Premeditated Israeli Violence

Israel is a rogue police state.

by Stephen Lendman

Merriam-Webster calls a police state "a political unit characterized by repressive governmental control of political, economic, and social life usually by an arbitrary exercise of power by police and especially secret police in place of regular operation of administrative and judicial organs of the government according to publicly known legal procedures."

In other words, it's governance by state terror over a controlled population. Palestinians understand well. They've experienced the worst kind of militarized persecution and repression for decades. 

State-sponsored violence affects them multiple times daily. They're isolated on their own without rights. They're terrorized for not being Jews. World leaders able to help spurn them.

In the week ending December 13 alone, Israel forces killed three Palestinians. Three others were wounded. West Bank communities were violently raided 10 times daily on average pre-dawn.

Forty-five innocent Palestinians were arrested. Five boys and one girl were violently detained. Three human rights organizations were attacked. Their belongings were confiscated. Their offices were ransacked and trashed.

The Palestinian Human Rights Organizations Council (PHROC) condemned what happened. 

It denounced Israel's "brutal raid(s) as part of the continuous campaign to target and hinder the work of human rights organizations and their supporters, as well as to gather information on the employees of civil society organizations."

On November 21, Pillar of Cloud terror-bombings ended. Daily Israeli violence continues. Palestinians live in a virtual war zone.

Media scoundrels ignore it. Palestinian deaths, injuries, and arrests aren't reported. Israel freely commits murder and unspeakable brutality with immunity. What began decades ago never ended.

On December 12, Mohammed Ziad Awad al-Salayma turned 17. He lived in Hebron's old city. He went to buy birthday cake to celebrate. 

At Checkpoint 160 he was stopped. It's about 100 meters from his home. A female Border Guard Force accosted him. She opened fire. She murdered him at point blank range.

He threatened no one. Three bullets caused instant death. Israeli forces kept his body over two hours before releasing it. The Israeli soldier is safe. No criminal charges will follow. She and other security forces are free to kill again. Impunity whitewashes their crimes.

Al Haq said it's investigating the incident. Shortly after the shooting, Mohammad's parents learned what happened. They rushed to the crime scene. They tried to enter an Israeli ambulance holding their son.
