Disbelief in New Jersey
- - - - by Yoel.Ben-Avraham
The "Every Inchers" need to appreciate the democracy that is Israel. It provides them with the right of redress. It allows them to call for the investigation and prosecution of those police, if any, who went overboard at Amona. Those who support the new Israeli consensus, meanwhile, need to make their voices heard - to match the passionate intensity of the "Every Inchers."
Andrew Silow-Carroll is editor of the New Jersey Jewish NewsI can't believe that there are still human beings who watched the video clip of the Yasamnik who entered the house in Amona and brutally beat, without provocation, the youth who were sitting passively on the floor. Again and again and again he beat them, and when one screamed out to let him get up to leave, instead of letting the youth leave the building (that was the ultimate purpose, wasn't it?). That sadistic sad excuse for an Officer of the Law beat the youth mercilessly for opening his mouth.
It must be nice, Mr. Silow-Carroll, to sit in your office in New Jersey and pontificate on events that are taking place nine thousand kilometers away without even viewing the plain evidence that something is very wrong in this so-called "Western Democracy". I can assure you, Mr. Silow-Carroll, if anything even remotely similar occurred in your 'neck-of-the-woods' the press would be screaming for a full and impartial investigation - something an investigation authored by the Kenesset is guaranteed not to be!
