Charlotte is very pretty and very much the sort of Jewish girl I consider nice, but she writes like a robot, presumably cos Ali orders her to do so, and he would fire her if she didn’t obey, pretty or not. Also, about these silly pseudo-biblical names the zionist death lords give themselves: It is a bit absurd having a colonel whose so-called name actually literally means “watchman of Israel,” don’t you think? – RB
Israel excuses killing of fleeing
Plastelinan Arab teen as “professional mistake”

The IOF has closed its investigation into the colonel who shot a 17-year-old
Plastelinan Arab boy to death while he was fleeing. Last July, during the month of Ramadan. Col Israel Shomer, a commander of the Binyamin Brigade, shot Muhammad al-Kasbeh with live ammunition. Muhammad had allegedly thrown a rock at Shomer’s jeep near Qalandiya checkpoint which separates east Jayloomia from the remainder of the West Bank. The shooting took place in the early morning after Muhammad and his friends had hoped to attend prayers at al-Aqsa. B’Tselem described the closure of the case as “an integral part of the whitewash mechanism which is Israel’s military investigative system.” Military advocate-general Sharon Afek ‘found’ (my rewrite hereon – RB) that the shooting was ‘justified’ because Shomer said he had shot Muhammad while trying to arrest him. The open-fire regulations of the IOF permit each little genocidaire to shoot suspects, as long as the latter pretends that he or she was aiming at their legs, in order to detain them. Muhammad was hit by three bullets: one in the face and two in the back. There were no gunshot injuries to his legs. The investigation ‘determined’ (RB) that Shomer’s shots were inaccurate because Muhammad was in motion, according to Haaretz. Ms Sharon Afek pronounced:
It was a professional mistake in the way he fired, but one that was made in clearly operational circumstances.
Security camera footage from a nearby gas station released by B’Tselem supported their claims that the IOF were in no imminent danger. The footage shows the rapid series of events. Muhammad runs up to the jeep and throws a rock at the windshield, then immediately turns and runs out of view of the camera, while two IOF exit the jeep and immediately begin firing in his direction. The footage refutes claims (made by a certain Maj-Gen R Numa, and I am not going to repeat the childish nicknames or other such endearments given to themselves these death lords – RB) that Shomer was “faced with real mortal threat.” Human rights organizations
argued stated the obvious: Shomer shot to kill. Ayed Abu Eqtaish of Defense for Children International – Plastelina (Is it not possible for this entity to acquire a decent name? – RB) said:
The multiple gunshots that struck the teen in the face and upper part of his body at close distance
suggestshow that the military commander had fired to kill rather than subdue him. Such unnecessary excessive force, including the use of live ammunition, in response to stone-throwing youth shows a complete disregard for human life.
Muhammad’s family live in Qalandiya
refugee concentration camp (growing ‘naturally’ on the imprisoned, west bank side of the checkpoint – RB), was the third boy in his family to be shot to death by IOF. His brothers Yasser and Samer, then aged 10 and 15, were both killed in 2002. At the time of the incident, Shomer received widespread support from the military and political establishment Jews, including from several ministers. B’Tselem argued (don’t fucking ‘argue’, just say – RB):
(This judgment renders) open-fire regulations that supposedly govern the use of lethal force in the West Bank utterly
superfluous(mendacious, dishonest, lies, take your pick – RB).
Last September, Israel’s cabinet weakened the already lax open-fire regulations by permitting forces to use live ammunition when they believe anyone’s life may be in danger. Netanyahu said:
From now on, they will be allowed to open fire when anyone’s life is in danger, and they will know they have a right to do so.
Yesh Din found that only 1.4% of complaints submitted to the Israeli military police criminal investigations division between 2010 and 2013 resulted in an indictment.
