‘There is no co-existence with cancer’: Right-wing Israelis demand gov’t give military ‘free hand’

http://mondoweiss.net/2015/10/existence-military-palestinians

Brandishing their typical black and yellow flags and Hebrew signs boasting “Kahane was Right” and “There is no co-existence with cancer,” hundreds of right-wing activists took to the streets of Jerusalem Thursday night in a growing phenomenon of public demonstrations led by the country’s leading fascist groups such as Lahava and La Familia. Despite negligible attempts by Israeli police to force the demonstrators from proceeding (the demonstration was not granted prior police approval), the Jewish crowds began marching at around 9 pm when police officers made it readily apparent that they had no intention of halting the mostly youth from making their away across the city

Guided and instigated by far-right ideologues such as Benzion Gopstein and Baruch Marzel, the crowds chanted their usual “Death to Arabs,” “A Jew has a soul, an Arab is a son of a whore,” and other similar malicious slogans.

The marauding Jews marched from the city’s main soccer stadium to the Old City before scores of Israeli riot police prevented them from crossing into the neighboring Palestinians neighborhoods. Upon being denied access to cross the Old City, scuffles and outright fighting erupted between Jewish protesters and riot police, which according to police spokeswoman Luba Samri, resulted in the arrest of four individuals, including three 16 year olds and Gopstein himself. Throughout the ensuing clashes, rocks and pebbles were thrown directly at the police officers, accompanied by the occasional chant of “Arab lovers” and “Israel is a police state.” From there, the demonstrators dispersed, with many of them raiding the nearby Mamilla shopping center that abuts Jaffa Gate, continuing their chants against Arabs and searching for Palestinians to intimidate and harass. Although the current author did not witness the disturbances in Mamilla, media reports confirm several instances of attacks committed by Jewish rioters, including the use of pepper spray against Arab pedestrians.


I find it odd that if this had been a Palestinian mob that few might have remained alive after challenging the Israeli Police.

2. This entire story was lifted from Ha'aretz including the photo (uncredited)

 

In typical Mondoweiss fashion, they steal someone else's reporting and add their own disgusting embellishment: "marauding Jews" and the like.

Literally the mirror image of Pam Gellar's hate site.

Take the most extreme people and try to present them as representatives of the whole.

Gellar does it for Arabs, Mondoweiss does it for Jews.

3. Later down in the article, Jews are to blame - not Abbas for inciting this whole mess

 

Despite Abbas' PA led media with its constant incitement, blaring and shrieking on about al-Aqsa being under attack.....that Jews' filthy feet desecrate the site....that precious, consecrated Palestinian martyr blood should be shed protecting the Mosque from evil Jews.

Same Abbas paying over $100 million a year to terrorists.....all based on the severity of attack. The worse the attack, the more money to the terrorists and their families.

Typical Mondoweiss, apologists for Hate.

4. You should stop making misstatements in order to deflect from the truth.

So what else are you being disingenuous about?
