Soldiers opened fire on Palestinians after they attacked checkpoint with fire, Molotov cocktails; security forces gear up for outbreak of violence ahead of funeral of Palestinian prisoner in Hebron.They have to learn that it is not perpetually open-season on the Jewish people. The only reason the check-point is even there is because Arabs have so often sought to kick the hell out of Jews since the time of Muhammed. Were it not for that time-honored, Koranically-based tradition there would be no need for check-points to begin with.
IDF soldiers shot and killed a 17-year-old Palestinian by an IDF checkpoint in Tulkarem in the West Bank following an attack on the soldiers on Wednesday night, Army Radio reported.
According to the report, several Palestinians fired toward and threw Molotov cocktails at the Einav checkpoint.
The soldiers left their positions and responded to the attack with live fire, reportedly killing one Palestinian and injuring another.
Security forces are geared for an outbreak of violence in the West Bank Thursday, particularly in Hebron where a funeral will be held for Palestinian prisoner Maissara Abu Hamdiyeh, 63, who died of esophagus cancer in Soroka Hospital on Tuesday.
Two separate autopsies by both Israel and the Palestinian Authority that his death was caused by cancer, but that did not quell Palestinian anger against Israel for his death.
The Palestinian-Arabs, like the Arab governments more generally, could have chosen to live in peace with their Jewish neighbors, but they chose not to. Were it not for the fact that Arabs absolutely refuse to allow the Jews to live in peace on historically Jewish land there would be no conflict. There would be no check-points. There would be no security barrier (or "Apartheid Wall" as anti-Semitic anti-Zionists like to say). There would have been no "Nakba." There would have been no refugees. There would have been no suicide bombers.
None of it.
It all derives from virulent racism toward the Jewish minority in the Middle East by the vast Arab majority.
These people are ruining their own lives, and the lives of their children, because they absolutely refuse to accept us. Out of a deep, theocratically-based, racism against Jews they are willing to throw everything away.
And what is this nonsense that Israel is somehow responsible for the death of an Arab murderer who dies in an Israeli prison medical facility from cancer?
The stupidity is just unimaginable. Perhaps Netanyahu will apologize and give some additional funds to the PA for their loss.
