Israeli MK: burning Palestinian boys is not act of terror

In his remarks, the MK justifies burning the Palestinian family to death in West Bank at the end of July

Israeli Knesset Member (MK) Bezalel Smotrich considered on Thursday burning Palestinian children is not an act of terror.
In his words, Smotrich referred to the arson attack and murder of a Palestinian father, wife and little child in the village of Duma in the occupied West Bank city of Nablus at the end of July.

Days of Palestine, Jerusalem –Israeli Knesset Member (MK) Bezalel Smotrich considered on Thursday burning Palestinian children is not an act of terror.

Smotrich published a column in the B’Sheva weekly newspaper, saying that the attacks carried out by extremist Israeli settlers, including “price tag” attacks are not classified as terrorism.

“Terrorism is only violence carried out by an enemy within the framework of war against us, and only that justifies taking severe steps who are out of place in normal situations,” he wrote, “all the rest are serious crimes, abominable crime, nationalist crime, but not terrorism.”

In his words, Smotrich referred to the arson attack and murder of a Palestinian father, wife and little child in the village of Duma in the occupied West Bank city of Nablus at the end of July.

“The murder in Duma is not an incident of terrorism, Period,” he wrote. “Whoever calls it terrorism is deviating from the truth, causing mortal and unjustified harm to human and civil rights,” he explained.

Defending the extremist illegal Jewish settlers, who perpetrated the crime, he wrote: “Cheapening the term terrorism, and as a result at the end of the day damaging the effectiveness of the battle against it. We are not in a war against Jews.”

Israeli security arrested a Shin Bet agent over suspicions of taking part in the attack, but refused to sue him, claiming there is not enough evidence against him, released him and only put him under house arrest for five days.

Smotrich criticised this arrest, claiming this would led to a community feeling oppressed. Justifying the terror acts, he said, this feeling would inevitably lead to explosion.

Then, “no one should be surprised when that happens, when more and more people are pushed against their will into acts that they must not commit,” Smotrich wrote.

    Margot! Jobba för en fullständig bojkott av Israeliska produkter. Snälla. Ta steget som många andra länder vill göra men inte vågar. Bli en världsledande. Klä av USA inpå bara skinnet…. Du är grymt bra i Palestinafrågan.

    No I do not believe that it is terrorism, What it is, is a savage deplorable act carried out by heinous perpetrators. Terrorism IS the unofficial or unauthorized use of violence and intimidation in the pursuit of political aims.

    • PG_Bill

      Of course it is terrorism. Smotrich’s argument is absurd – terrorism does not have to be aimed at the state, the intention here is to terrorise a subgroup within the state, i.e. the Palestinians.

    Oh dear me .. and these are the (future) policy makers in the Knesset! How much lower can this scum stoop to justify their illegal occupation and racist apartheid state?

    I see a lot of parallels between Israhell and Nazi-Germany. But Israhell is worse imao. The IDF kidnap children on a big scale, (sexually) torture them, kill them for organs, use them as a human shield and Israhelli see themselves as the chosen people (uebermenschen) . Israhell is a terror state of cowards and hypocrites., still it feels morally superior. And one more parallel: Israhells days are numbered too. It will fall.

      The only thing they do not do (or we might not be aware of it yet…)
      are the gassings. They are indeed worse. Due to WWII they should know
      how NOT to treat other people.
      Treat people the way you want people to treat you…

        Israel uses white phosphorus bombs, which were outlawed by the Geneva Convention. Once white phosphorus hit the air, it ignites and there is no way to put it out. It is a horrific way to die.

        The troubling part is that the Western especially the US is supporting and financing their crimes against humanity…

      I second that opinion, some people have the nerve to call me anti-Semite because I question this hypocrisy….

        You can tell them that anti-zionist is not the same as anti-semite! (And you can invite them to check out on social networks the ideas exposed by groups of Jews for Palestinians.)

          People are conditioned to see only one side of the story, so even if you give them the fact they outright reject it. Zionism is a political ideology, very dangerous and dictatorial, no better than Communism, Fascism and all the other -isms combined. When innocent people suffer because of the actions of power hungry people, it needs to be seen for what it is….unconscionable, cruel and inhumane. I wear the label as a batch of honor because honest inquiry doesn’t need a defense.

          • Nicola B. Bernardelli

            Men under any flag can do nasty things, let’s just look at the history of Christianism… however, while certain -isms get distorted or badly or partially implemented or are betrayed by part of their leaders, others carry an horrifying _essence_ in their “official” ideology. One such -ism is Zionism. Some of my friends are Jews, I also had a girlfriend… most of them are clearly anti-zionists. I wouldn’t really let anybody call you an anti-semite without pointing out that there’s a huge difference.

          • Lisette Muntslag

            When things in your environment do not make sense, it is a civic duty to question all information received. Because you cannot come to conclusions because of what others say….I allowed myself to live and learn. My experiences enabled me to get a grip on the dynamic. Zionism is an international crime syndicate and the troubling part is that the USA and some countries in Europe enable the monster to flourish and commit atrocities with impunity.

          • Nicola B. Bernardelli

            Agreed. Israel (and some of the Gulf monarchies!) are even being integrated into the ONU, as observers at first… Israel will be the only member disobeying _various_ ONU resolutions. An increasing number of USA citizens is raising their voices against this and many other unacceptable facts. Actually, I arrived to this article because it was shared in Facebook by another of Jill Stein’s activists. People in those groups are questioning, with sorrow and anger, many aspects of the USA policy and of other countries policies. Personally, I think at present the only hope is that Jill Stein gets elected as the new US President. That’s quite possible if not very probable by now. Numbers from CNN and other pro-Clinton media are lying. Among many other things, Jill Stein will change the relationships USA-Israel and stop funding this genocide.

    oh gee. I guess holocaust is only terrible if it’s against the jews.
    btw, the holocaust was not the first time someone tried to eliminate the jewish people… and now we know why

    Smotrich is a disgrace to the human race. Sies!

    Controlled opposition jews love to compare the real atrocities of “Israel” to the made-up Hollywood jewish fantasy version of Hitler and NSDAP Germany. Then they sit back smugly, grinning with duping delight, as they know they have just injected the discourse with poison, since people’s belief in the holocrock psych-war propaganda is what paved the way for the implementation of a jewish state in the first place. They think they are reinforcing the foundation of “Israel,” that is the only reason they do it. To fool goyim.

    If you know the glorious, real history of Germany’s period of economic freedom from usury, you know that there is no basis for comparison with “Israel.” NSDAP Germany, if anything, is what Palestine would be like if it were LIBERATED from jewish power. Jews are loathe to allow anyone to know real history, for it shows jews in a terrible and menacing light. Darth Vader and the Dark Side have ABSOLUTELY NOTHING on the international jewish banking cabal that is behind every problem in the world, from the economic crashes and manufactured famine of millions, to communism, to zionism, to ISIS, 9/11, almost every terrorist act, etc etc.

    For one thing, the Germans were not evil, that is myth, and the Germans were on their own land, very different from the situation with jewish occupied Palestine. If you want an accurate comparison, compare the Israelis to the Bolsheviks, the behavior is identical, and they are literally the same people that later went to Palestine and started butchering people and stealing the land.
