Murdered by Israeli Military Thugs

Ibrahim Abu Thurayeh

Shocked at the “incomprehensible” killing of a wheelchair-bound amputee protester by Israeli security forces, the top United Nations human rights official has called on the country to open an independent and impartial investigation into the incident…

“However, as far as we can see, there is nothing whatsoever to suggest that Ibrahim Abu Thurayeh [the protester] was posing an imminent threat of death or serious injury when he was killed,” he added, stressing: “Given his severe disability, which must have been clearly visible to those who shot him, his killing is incomprehensible – a truly shocking and wanton act.”

I’m not shocked. I will never grow accustomed to the murder of protestors by thugs of any government. But, no one should be surprised by this murder on behalf of the Israeli government.

    Statement of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein, at the 31st session of the Human Rights Council in Geneva, 29 February 2016
    “Zeid Ra’ad al-Hussein, Top Human Rights Official, Won’t Seek a Second Term” (NYT Dec 20) “Mr. al-Hussein proved confounding to many by defying classification: the first human rights chief from the Middle East but a sharp critic of violations by Arab governments; a Muslim who condemned Islamic militants; and a Jordanian prince who discarded his title to take the job and become an advocate for victims.
    “Even more than his predecessors, Zeid fully embraced the role of U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights as ‘conscience for the world,’ eloquently using his voice to become ‘a sort of nightmare’ for dictators, demagogues, and anti-democratic foes,” said Felice Gaer, director of the Jacob Blaustein Institute for the Advancement of Human Rights, in New York.

    “Netanyahu: Israel says ‘no’ to terror by approving a new settlement ” (Jerusalem Post 2/4/18) Israeli settlements are seen as illegal under international law and according to the Israeli group Peace Now approving this rogue settlement “would set a precedent of legalizing an outpost on private Palestinian land, once considered unthinkable.”
