Teenager detained without trial over Palestinian attacks

Also arrested and placed under administrative detention for six months were Evyatar Slonim and 18-year-old Mordechai Meyer, both suspected of involvement in various nationalistic crimes but never indicted.


“We are still dealing with the same problems that we faced 20 years ago”, Yohanan Plesner, president of the Israeli Democracy Institute and a former Knesset member, said Monday, referring to the assassination of Prime Minister Itzhak Rabin by an ultranationalist Jewish settler who opposed the Israeli-Palestinian peace initiative.

While administrative detention has been used against Jewish extremists, it’s relatively rare.

According to the Times of Israel, Ettinger in his 2013 “the rebel manifesto” called for bringing down the Israeli government by targeting the country’s “weak points” and firing “up these powder kegs … until we have a situation in which Jews must decide whether they are part of the revolution or part of the repression [of the rebellion]”.

If that wasn’t horrific enough, Ali Dawabsheh, an 18-month-old Palestinian toddler was killed and his family seriously injured by a Molotov cocktail thrown by yet known assailants at their Douma Village home in Samaria.

This past Sunday, Israel’s security cabinet approved the use of administrative detention for suspected Jewish terrorists.

The Jewish extremist violence primarily stems from a “particular fringe”, concentrated in the northern West Bank, “where ultra-Orthodoxy mets ultra-nationalism”, he added.

Critics say the Israeli soldiers stationed in the West Bank are under the impression that they are responsible only for protecting Jews, not Palestinians or their property.

Although different, the pair of fatal attacks prompted authorities to crack down on religiously and politically motivated Jewish extremists, although none have been accused of complicity in the violence.

On Thursday, an extremist stabbed six people at the Jerusalem Pride Parade, killing a 16-year-old girl.

Ettinger, 23, was arrested “because of his activities in a Jewish extremist organisation”, a Shin Bet spokesman said.

Israeli media linked it to an alleged involvement in the June 18 fire attack that badly damaged the Church of the Multiplication of Loaves and Fishes on Lake Kinneret, marking the site where Jesus is believed to have performed a miracle of feeding 5,000 people.

Children in Gaza joined the growing outcry against Jewish terrorists from the illegal Israeli settlements that are funded by Israel’s rightwing government and with funds by American taxpayers.

“Those who yell “Death to Arabs” on the soccer field are those who think “gay” is a curse word”, said Livni, now an opposition lawmaker from Zionist Union. They arrested a man belongs to the Jewish terror group.

Palestinian protesters took to the streets across the occupied West Bank, including Israeli-annexed east Jerusalem, triggering clashes with the Israeli army.

In April 2014, approximately 300 Palestinian prisoners being held in Israeli prisons launched a mass two-month hunger strike in protest against Israel’s use of administrative detention, the longest mass hunger strike in Palestinian history.


Israeli officials say the practice is intended to prevent attacks and is not punitive.
