Jews... from Jerusalem, Beit Shemesh and Adam

Some more details about the Jews who have been arrested for the kidnapping and murder of Mohammed abu Khadr.
Six suspects were in custody Sunday night on suspicion of being involved in the murder of Mohammed Abu Khder. The six were arrested earlier Sunday.
According to Channel Ten news, police were granted a request Sunday afternoon to extend the remand of five of the six for eight days. The sixth one will remain in custody for five days. Earlier reports said that three of the six had been released. Reports also said that the six are mostly members of an extended family, and live in Jerusalem, Beit Shemesh, and the town of Adam in the Binyamin region.
Police sources have also said that the six “connected themselves” to the incident. Channel Two said that one of the six confessed to the crime and implicated the others.
Honenu has agreed to represent them. Honenu usually represents persons involved in pro-'settler' activity. I hope this doesn't mean that there are 'settlers' involved in this (although Adam is located in Samaria just north of Jerusalem).

I am shocked that a Jew may have done something like this. That's not how we behave.

No, that's not how we behave.

Although we could use the arabs convoluted logic that they were forced to do it due to circumstances ... Isn't that what they claim, why they have to kill innocents? Doesn't the world support that?

I think that's the "tipping point".
There's only so much the Jews can keep their heads down and neither defend themselves nor fight back while the palis and Hamas have free rein (plus money and International acceptance) to attack Israel from all angles.

FWIW, it doesn't fit my definition of Black Swan because IMO it was inevitable that Jews "snap.

Of all possible candidates, why was Khadr was picked out?

At a condolence call on Sunday with the families of three Israeli teens abducted on June 12 and killed, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu noted the difference between Palestinian reactions to the deaths of the trio, and Israeli reactions to the murder of a Jerusalem Arab by suspected Jewish extremists last Wednesday.

“I am visiting today with my family, the families of Gilad (Shaer), Naftali (Frankel) and Eyal (Yifrach), who were murdered by Hamas terrorists. I promised their dear families that we will continue to stand by them, even after the days of mourning,” Netanyahu said at the home of the Frankel family in the town of Nof Ayalon.

Stressing that Israel would track down the captors of the Jewish victims, Netanyahu pointed out that “The murderers came from the territory controlled by the Palestinian Authority; they returned to territory controlled by the Palestinian Authority. Therefore, the Palestinian Authority is obliged to do everything in its power to find them, just as we did, just as our security forces located the suspects in the murder of Mohammed Abu Khudair within a matter of days.”

Netanyahu then sent his condolences to the Abu Khudair family.

“I pledge that the perpetrators of this horrific crime, which must be resolutely condemned in the most forceful language. I pledge that the perpetrators of this horrific crime will face the full weight of the law,” Netanyahu emphasized.

“I know that in our society, the society of Israel, there is no place for such murderers. And that’s the difference between us and our neighbors. They consider murderers to be heroes. They name public squares after them. We don’t. We condemn them and we put them on trial and we’ll put them in prison.”

“And that’s not the only difference,” the PM continued. “While we put these murderers on trial, in the Palestinian Authority, there is continuous incitement for the destruction of the State of Israel. It’s a staple of the official media and the educational system.”

“This is an asymmetrical conflict,” Netanyahu said. “We do not seek their destruction; they teach a very broad segment of their society to seek our destruction. And that must end. There is too much suffering. There is too much pain.”

Netanyahu concluded that Israel did not differentiate between either groups of killers, saying that “we will respond to all of them, wherever they come from, with a firm hand. We will not allow extremists from wherever they come to ignite the region and shed more blood.”

In Jerusalem, President Shimon Peres issued a statement decrying the mutual violence, and addressed the abduction and murder of Abu Khdeir.

“If a Jew kills they will be put to the court like any other criminal, there is no privilege, the law is equal to all and all are equal before the law. On that there is no compromise. We do not distinguish between blood and blood.

“The murder of a child is reprehensible, regardless of the religion or nationality of the child. It is our responsibility to secure life and to punish those who take it away from others,” Peres said.

“We must stop the incitement, it’s time to be respectful and to respect the law,” Peres said.

It’s in our hands. We know where words can lead, to more sorrow, to more danger,” Peres said. “It’s time for all of us to show restraint, to show understanding and let us as human beings, all of us, be true to our morality and to our hope of living together in peace.”

Carl, do you think they will get a fair trial, or are they already considered guilty?

At 7:51 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

As I said elsewhere, if it turned out to be Jews, I hope they are captured, tried, and executed, just as much as I hope the same fate befalls the murderers of our three boys. (Of course, they deserve a fair trial, but if guilty we need to destroy this evil--no ifs, ands, or buts.)

But it is a good sign that we are reacting to this news as we do. Unfortunately, there are those who will do immoral acts in the name of "revenge." This creates the conditions for the next tragedy to happen. I will make note that the Israeli (and Jewish) reaction to the murder of our boys was in contrast to the Palestinian reaction. As long as we keep our heads, this contrast will eventually reach the wider world, but too slow for me and most of us.
