Activist Assault in Tel Aviv Should Serve as Wake-up Call for Israel’s Ordinary People

But yes, it is newsworthy, because we must continue believing that other ordinary people are reading what we write, people who are not yet speaking out. Maybe something about the gradual nature of the violence rings a bell with them: First they came for the socialists, then they came for the Jews, but we weren’t those things, so we remained silent. Then came the turn for the others, and we continued to be silent. And when thugs attacked us, there was no one left to protect us.

Israeli Left-wing Activist Assaulted in Tel Aviv

On Sunday, he said, he left work and noticed he was being followed. „I assumed they were police who had come to arrest me,“ said Pollak, who is also active in the organization Anarchists against the Wall. „I went into a place where I could avoid them but they got to me and pushed me to the floor,“ he says. He took some blows but after scratching his face with the knife, he says, they seemed to get spooked and fled.

Pollak did not complain to the police because „that is the last entity in the world I would turn to for protection. That’s simply not its job.“

Bleeding, Blindfolded and Cuffed, Osama Tried to Run. Then Came the Second Shot

The locals just want to get the victim to a hospital and there’s a great hullabaloo, until a few men manage to break through the ring of soldiers, pick up the youth quickly – only just that moment had his shackles been released – and attempt to carry him away. The soldiers, who apparently don’t know what to do, try again to chase away the men; they fire one shot that doesn’t hit anyone, apparently tear gas, but then quickly relent. The wounded boy is evacuated. His life is saved. A main artery was hit in one leg and he could have bled to death very fast, we’re told by the physicians in the hospital a few days later.

What Donald Trump did Thursday night in Montana is really dangerous

„All Americans should recoil from the President’s praise for a violent assault on a reporter doing his Constitutionally protected job,“ White House Correspondents Association president Olivier Knox said in a statement Friday.
I find it very hard to believe how anyone — even if you hate journalists and love President Trump — could fail to see the danger here. If you make reporters out to be deserving of being knocked around and assaulted, how big a leap is it until someone hears that as free license to do something far worse to a reporter?

Case Against Policemen Who Assaulted Israeli Arab Lawmaker Dropped

(29.7.2018) The investigation first focused on the sponge-tipped bullets. The police rebutted Odeh’s claim that he was hit by one, arguing that no fire was directed at him and that he was hit by stones thrown by protesters. A medical report could not determine what caused his wound, and questions remain.

Haaretz has learned that none of the policemen had mentioned the confrontation with Odeh in his report, and investigators could not identify who used the pepper spray, even though the entire incident was documented on videotape.
