Jerusalem police arrest 9th grade immigrant who speaks no Hebrew

Our police may not be as bad as Iran's, but civil rights here aren't what they are in the US either.

Jerusalem police violently broke up a demonstration at the city's entrance on Monday, and a 9th grade immigrant from Spain was arrested. As of Tuesday afternoon, his whereabouts are unknown.
One eyewitness said that police hit a rabbi who was only standing on the sidewalk at the entrance to Jerusalem. Police violently arrested approximately 10 young teenagers from the Mercaz HaRav High School in Jerusalem and three ninth graders from a school in Beit El, in Samaria.

The Spanish immigrant speaks broken Hebrew and his friends are afraid of his fate at the hands of police. They said that no one knows what has happened to him and the other youth who were arrested.

Besides the protests at the entrance to Jerusalem, Women in Green activists fanned out through Judea and Samaria at night and pasted hundreds of stickers that stated in Hebrew, “Bibi, in Chavat Gilad, you have shot yourself in the leg.”

Tuesday morning, the posters were in full view of motorists as nationalist leaders try to reawaken supporters who have become accustomed to demolitions and an erosion of former “red lines” in talks with the Palestinian Authority.
The catalyst for this incident was a border police raid on Gilad's Farm, a Samarian outpost, at 4:00 am on Tuesday, which I blogged here.

Women in Green activists? I wonder if they are tied in anyway with the pro-Hamas,Pro-Hezbollah group that used to march against us in San Francisco? The Women in Black?

The leftist Israeli police have never broken up leftist protests that barricaded highways. They only act against rightists.

That confirms there are two systems of law and justice in Israel. The same dual justice system that let Anat Kam off for treason with a slap on the wrist.

Don't hold your breath waiting for it to be changed any time soon.
