Malaysian wants to come to Israel to defend Adele Biton's murdererssustained the injuries from which she ultimately died. Perhaps you remember Adele:
terrorists are being tried in an Israeli military court - they were 16-years old at the time of the incident and that's an age at which in many countries violent criminals are charged as adults. What they were throwing were not the small rocks that come to mind when you say 'stones.' They were cinderblocks. These 'youths' clearly deserve to have the full weight of the law thrown at them if they are guilty.
You might recall that the 'Palestinians' are running a campaign to free the terrorists, referring to the incident as the 'Wadi'a Maswadah Hoax.' Now, that campaign has spread to Malaysia, the world's largest Muslim country, which is hostile enough to Israel that its citizens may not use their Malaysian passports to visit Israel (Hat Tip: Slim S).
Currently, the IWPS* team accompanies the trial and legal proceedings of five Palestinian boys from Hares, who are being tried before an Israeli military court for charges of attempted murder for throwing stones.
The narrative began on Thursday March 14, 2013, when a car crashed at around 6.30pm into the back of a truck on Road 5 in Salfit, injuring the driver and her three daughters.
The driver claimed that the accident was due to Palestinian youths throwing stones at her car. Aside from the two drivers and the three daughters, there were no other witnesses to the car accident nor had anybody witnessed children or youth throwing stones on that day.
By very early morning of Friday, masked Israeli soldiers with attack dogs had stormed the village of Hares and arrested ten boys, blindfolded and handcuffed.
In the next few days to the following week, several more adolescents were arrested, totalling 19 from the villages of Hares and Kife Hares (neighbouring villages) arrested in relation to the settler car accident, none of them with a previous history of stone-throwing.
After several violent interrogations, most were released except for five Hares boys – aged between 16 and 17 – who remain until today in Megiddo, an Israeli adult prison.
They are charged with 20 counts of attempted murder (one count per every alleged stone thrown at passing cars), a charge that carries a maximum punishment of twenty years to life imprisonment.
Reading the invitation to join the IWPS team, to have the privilege to accompany the process and to independently witness the case and judge for myself how the system of justice is applied in Israel and occupied Palestine, all these thoughts came to mind.
I do not know if I could accept the invitation (to enter the area would mean first crossing into the Israeli border – a place into which the Malaysian passport officially prohibits entry). But at the very least, for now, I have the power of sharing their narrative. – November 3, 2015.
* The International Women’s Peace Service (IWPS) is a team of human rights volunteers, based in the village of Deir Istiya, Salfit district, occupied Palestine, that supports Palestinian and Israeli anti-occupation groups in their grassroots resistance to end the brutal and illegal military occupation. IWPS opposes all forms of racism, including anti-Semitism and Islamophobia.This is how the international Left operates. Note that there is no mention of the fact that Baby Adele (who is in any event nameless in the post) died. If Israel were randomly arresting 'Palestinians' who had no connection to the incident, why were most of them released? The woman accuses the IDF of gathering witnesses through 'wide publicity.' But Highway 5 is a major highway that runs to the coast, and there must have been witnesses who saw what happened, and who would testify without anyone 'gathering' them. On what basis does this woman who has never even seen Israel accuse the IDF of fabricating witnesses?
