Israel Criminalizes Throwing Snowballs
Israel is a rogue terror state.
by Stephen Lendman
Police states operate that way. Israel is one of the worst. It spurns rule of law principles. It turns democratic values on their head. It targets Palestinians for praying to the wrong God.
On January 20, Haaretz headlined "Nine Palestinians arrested for pummeling ultra-Orthodox with snowballs," saying:
Two ultra-Orthodox men were struck. Ten days ago, six Palestinians were apprehended. "Three others were arrested over the incident last week."
According to the old saying, "Sticks and stones will break my bones, but names will never harm me." Nor will snowballs.
Kids throw them at each other often. It's ritualistic. It's part of fun and games. Anyone growing up in northern climes remembers them fondly. Arrests never followed.
