Protest at Yeshiva of Students Arrested For Throwing Rock That Killed Palestinian Woman


A small protest took place at the Pri Haaretz Yeshiva in Yishuv Rechalim in Shomron on Tuesday morning, the school attended by the youths in ISA (Israel Security Agency/Shin Bet) custody for their alleged participated in a fatal rock-throwing attack against a Palestinian mother of eight.

Shouts of “you are worse than Hamas”, “you are placing the State of Israel in true danger” and “you are more dangerous than Palestinian terrorists” were heard by the protesters, who decry the support the youths are receiving from rabbonim and politicians. The protesters insist these and others following the same path have lost their moral compass and are not representative of the religious right-wing.

  1. Even if they are guilty, they did the right thing. It is the protesters who have lost their moral compass; morality is that it is immoral for Arabs to drive without fear while Jews cannot. So long as rocks are routinely thrown at Jewish drivers, it is right and proper to throw them at Arab drivers too. It is just like when Etzel bombed Arab markets whenever the Arabs bombed Jewish ones. Would Netanyahu have arrested them?

  2. Please change the headline:
    “Protest at Yeshiva of Students Arrested For Throwing Rock That Killed Palestinian Woman” This is only an allegation please make it clear in the headline- its very misleading.

  3. Milhouse: you are advocating anarchy and breaking down of law and order? Are you seriously suggesting that the chaotic near-lawlessness that prevailed in EY between 1945-48 (and even afterwards) is something to which we should aspire? Literally “an eye for an eye?”
    Rock throwing, setting fire to houses, whatever — is a criminal act, no matter who commits it. By the same token, if the authorities have used illegal techniques on the arrested minors — that too is utterly wrong, possibly criminal, as well. And anything they may have “confessed” to, ought to be inadmissible in a court of law.
    But, recommending mayhem and a free-for-all on the roads is a recipe for disaster.

  4. Millhouse, are you for real?! Although I hate the Arabs too, there are many good Arabs too, but that is irrelevant. If innocent Arabs are killed it will rile up many more Arabs to kill Jews, Hashem yerachim. And Jews only kill in self-defense, we can’t kill people with the excuse that they hate us.
