Jerusalem District Court Judge Yaakov Tzaban on Sunday, 29 Tammuz 5774, read the indictments against Yosef Chaim Ben-David, 29, of Adam, the main defendant and co-defendants, two 16-year-old residents from Jerusalem and Beit Shemesh. The three are charged with the brutal kidnapping and murder of 16-year-old Jerusalem Arab resident Muhmad Abu-Khadir, who was kidnapped, beaten and set ablaze while still alive.
Prior to entering the courtroom, asked by reporters if he feels remorse, Ben-David said “I am Moshiach”. Defense attorney Aaron Rosa told reporters his client is not of proper state of mind.
In a related matter, 11 Shuafat residents charged on Sunday for their alleged crimes related to the widespread Arab rioting in areas of the capital following the murder.
On Sunday 29 Tammuz, rioting continued including rock-throwing attacks against the Jerusalem light rail.

The American teen who was allegedly beaten by police should have also been brought and charged with his crime. Instead he goes back to the US free to recount his tale to the fawning US media.
The gullible ones who believed his “confession” that he murdered the boy should have no problem believing his confession that he’s Mashiach.
In the meantime the Arab murderer killing this boy is still at large and the Shin Bet (who prefer framing innocent Jews especially ones with a kipah) have no plans finding him in order not to arouse the anger of the Arabs.
the Arab murderer who killed the boy
“Prior to entering the courtroom, asked by reporters if he feels remorse, Ben-David said “I am Moshiach”. Defense attorney Aaron Rosa told reporters his client is not of proper state of mind.”
So why does the Israeli “Government” insist on calling the murder, a “Nationalistic” crime? This guy is clearly a nut-job. He has threatened to kill members of his own family on numerous occasions. Was it the same reason they kept putting a Kippa on Yigal Amirs head whenever the cameras were around? Who are you kidding?
As I’ve stated here so many times already, the shameful apology tours that were conducted right after the murder by some of “our” Organizations, in it of itself, was a terrible Chillul Hashem! Why give it any more attention? Why is this nut case any different then then the murderer of Leiby Kletzy z”l? Do they apologize after every time a deranged Jew murders someone?
#4 This entire accusation is full of holes. Remember, he was in a car with 6 people and only he was accused because he’s obviously not strong enough to deny the charges. According to the Shin Bet this mentally unstable one killed the boy, burned him and what not and the 5 normal ones brought him and watched. Makes sense? Remember the Shin Bet got their report from Palestinian sources. Who can be more truthful than them?
The chillul Hashem is only for those who believe the Shin Bet blindly. There’s no doubt in most people’s mind that this Arab boy was murdered by Arab family honor and this is another Beilus affair in order to silence the protest after the three hostages were killed.
