Palestinian Family Hangs 15-Year-Old Boy Due To Suspicion of Collaboration with Israel

Ramallah_LogoIn Ramallah, West Bank, Palestinian police say that a family hanged a 15-year-old boy because they believed that he might be a collaborator with Israel. The police doubt that he was a collaborator due to his young age.

Police report that the boy was hanged by his own father, uncle, and cousin. One account says that the boy was tortured before being hanged.

  1. I just wouldn’t give wet food or veggies when you are giving your pet bananas.
    The way the animals explain it to me is that it is up to them and what they call
    ‘The Masters’ to determine how and when they return
    to us. However, there are companies that specialize in creating websites
    for individuals who have a “niche” in domestic pets, and animals.

    I no longer bother to read anything you write. Stop throwing tantrums.

    YOUR CONTINUED ATTEMPTS TO TRY AND TURN THIS INTO A PERSONAL ASSAULT AGAINST me WILL not WORK.

    you INSULT THE INTELLIGENCE OF everyone INTERESTED AND CONCERNED ABOUT THE SERIOUSNESS OF THIS ISSUE.

    you SIT THERE WITH YOUR feigned COMPASSION WHICH IS nothing more THAN AN EXAMPLE OF YOUR privledged, elitist attitudes. WHO DO you THINK you ARE. IF you HAD ANY real CONCERN FOR THE real living AND breathing human beings INVOLVED IN THIS STRUGGLE you WOULD TAKE SOME TIME OUT OF your LAW SCHOOL STUDIES TO educate yourself ON THE ISSUE. IF you’re GOING TO COMMENT ON SOMETHING OF SUCH significance you OWE THAT TO THE PEOPLE OF THE REGION WHO ARE DYING.

    IT’S PEOPLE LIKE you WHO CONTRIBUTR TO THE PROBLEM WITH your MISINFORMED OPINIONS. you ARE not WORTHY OF INCLUSION IN THIS DISCUSSION BECAUSE you DO not HAVE THE COMMON respect TO EVEN FORM A RELEVANT OPINION BECAUSE your OPINION IS only FOUNDED UPON SOUNDBITES AND HEADLINES AND SOME OFFHANDED COMMENT you PICKED UP FROM A PUNDIT SOMEPLACE.

    HOW MUCH MORE insensitive AND self-centered CAN you BE? BUT you’re LIKE ALL THE privledged, elitist types WHO THINK HISTORY STARTED THE DAY OR MOMENT THEY BECAME AWARE OF IT AND ALL THAT MATTERS IS their knee-jerk, ya-hoo OPINION. AND WRAPPING yourself IN SOME fiegned SHEET OF COMPASSION DOES not EXCUSE you BECAUSE AS I’VE ALREADY STATED, IF you REALLY CARED ABOUT THE PEOPLE INVOLVED AND NOT ABOUT TRYING TO MAKE yourself FEEL GOOD AND IMPRESS your OTHER ignorant psuedo-intellectual CROWD WITH your fiegned COMPAQSSION SO you ALL CAN SIT AROUND AT your WINE PARTIES congratulating EACH OTHER for HOW MUCH you ALL CARE, you WOULD ONCE AGAIN, TAKE SOME TIME OUT OF your “social conscious” LIFE AND educate yourself ON THE FACTS.

    I WILL ONCE AGAIN QUOTE YOU;

    “THE HASHEM’S ARE JORDAN’S NOT ARABS”

    DO YOU KNOW HOW MANY PEOPLE you INSULTED WITH THAT absolutely ignorant STATEMENT. EVEN PEOPLE you PROBABLY THOUGHT you WE’RE DEFENDING. most jordanians CONSIDER themselves TO BE palestinians. they LIVED IN THE ANCIENT LAND KNOWN AS palestimne BEFORE the brits CARVED OFF A CHUNK OF IT AND handed IT TO the hashemite TRIBE OF arabia, the rulers of the land of the hejaz, the kings of the arab world who ruled over the holy sites of mecca and medina for centuries. THE arab, hashemite minority RULES the MAJORITY of arab/muslim/palestinians LIVING IN jordan.

    I’M not EVEN A muslim/arab/islamic apologist AND AT LEAST I HAVE THE respect TO know their HISTORY. I admitedly MAY not BE A SCHOLAR ON THE TOPIC but AT least I POSSESS A working KNOWLEDGE ABOUT THE TOPIC TO ARGUE FROM AN intelligent POSITION.

    AS I”VE STATED MY CONCLUSIONS MAY not BE AGRRED WITH, THEY MAY BE vitriolic, but ATY LEAST I’M WORKING FROM AN HISTORICALL factual POSITION.

    THE same CAN not BE SAID FOR you. AND you ARE SO arrogant AND full OF yourself THAT you DO not EVEN HAVE THE humility TO ACKNOWLEDGE your MISTAKE.

    your CONTINUED ATTEMPTS TO PERSONALLY ATTACK ME only expose JUST HOW arrogant, ignorant, self-centered and truly lacking in compassion you are.

  4. Sicilian screams:; YOU HAVE NO RIGHT ONE WAY OR THE OTHER TO TRY AND GIVE YOURSELF RELEVANCE TO SUCH A SERIOUS TOPIC WHEN YOU DON’T EVEN HAVE THE DECENCY TO DISCOVER THE HISTORY.

    you’ve gone from using all caps for emphasis to simply screaming. please have your blood pressure checked. I’m not sure that political blogs are the best use of your time. Try knitting. I hear it can be very soothing.
    btw, who taught you to scream at middle aged women like this? your own mother? your teachers? your priest? who taught you that this behavior is okay?

  5. Gyges:

    You ask for some back-up and I give you some and now you accuse me of trying to support my arguement?

    Is the beer still in your system?

  6. IS,

    Damn, and here I thought we were having a conversation and not just talking towards each other. Turns out you only read what you wanted me to be saying.

    PLEASE ADMIT YOUR ATTEMPT TO EXPOSE MY IGNORANCE ON THE TOPIC IN FACT EXPOSED YOUR IGNORANCE>

    WON’T YOUR EGO ALLOW YOU TO DO? IF NOT WHY? CAN”T YOU JUST ADMIT YOU DIDN”T KNOW? YOUR OWN WORDS ARE YOUR INDICTMENT.

    YOUR CONTINUED ATTEMPTS TO TRY TO TURN THE ISSUE ABOUT ME IS NOT THE REAL ARGUMENT. IT’s THAT YOU SIT BY YOUR COMPUTER BLOGGING ABOUT TOPICS YOU HAVE NO HISTORICAL KNOWLEDGE OF. AND THINK YOU CAN INDICT OTHERS.

    THE PROBLEM WITH THIS TOPIC IS THAT ANYONE COMMENTING ON IT AT LEAST NEEDS TO KNOW THE HISTORY BEFORE THEY CAN GIVE THEIR OPINION AND DRAW INTELLIGENT CONCLUSIONS.

    THERE ARE TOO MANY PEOPLE LIKE YOU WHO THINK THIS WHOLE PALESTINIAN ISSUE STARTED WHEN YOU FOUND OUT ABOUT IT.

    THIS IS THE GREATEST MOST IMPORTANT ISSUE OF OUR TIMES WHETHER YOU REALIZE IT OR NOT THIS ISSUE WILL CONTINUE TO HAUNT THE WORLD UNTILL IT IS SETTLED.

    IT IS INSULTING THAT IGNORANT PEOPLE LIKE YOURSELF WHO FEEL THAT THEIR OPINIONS ARE SO IMPORTANT AND WHO FEEL THAT EVERYTHING STARTS THE MOMENT THEY DECIDE TO BECOME AWARE OF SOMETHING HAVE THE RIGHT TO DISREGARD ALL THE HISTORY AND ACCURACY ON THE TOPIC.

    YOU HAVE NO RIGHT ONE WAY OR THE OTHER TO TRY AND GIVE YOURSELF RELEVANCE TO SUCH A SERIOUS TOPIC WHEN YOU DON’T EVEN HAVE THE DECENCY TO DISCOVER THE HISTORY.

    GO DO SOME HOMEWORK THEN WE’LL TALK.

  8. “Following are excerpts from an interview with Saudi Shura Council member Ibrahim Al-Buleihi, which aired on Channel 1, Saudi TV, on May 23, 2006.

    Interviewer: Some elements in Arab and Muslim societies have intensified the hostility towards Arabs and Muslims, through their acts of violence and terrorism, to the point that we see images of slaughtering the other – American or European – live on TV.

    Ibrahim Al-Buleihi: In my opinion, we should not describe these people as deviant. This is the product of our culture.

    […]

    They are the product of a culture that believes the other does not deserve to live, and is an absolute enemy with whom no understanding is possible.

    […]

    There is a fundamental flaw in our culture that leads to this behavior. This ideology, which was advocated by Sayyid Qutb, and which is implemented by those who kill innocent people – women, children, and people who have done nothing wrong – did not emerge out of thin air, but is the product of this culture. This is a one-dimensional culture, a culture of tyranny – tyranny in culture, in politics, in society, in the family, and in everything.

    […]

    The “other” does not have to be someone completely different. When we disagree with someone, even over minor iussues regarding ritual purity, we regard him as the “other,” we boycott him, we excommunicate him, defame him, level accusations at him, and so on.”

  9. Sicilian 1:

    these people are totaly clueless when it comes to Arabs, Arab Culture and Islam. I wouldnt waste my time arguing with them, well actually I did but even an Arab Islamic intellectual agrees with me.

    Most of these people look at life through the rose colored glasses of the left, they will argue with you despite the evidence of their own eyes. They see Muslims decapitating helpless people on TV, they see airliners crashed into buildings, they see women being treated like cattle, they see chaos in the Islamic world and they call me a bigot and a racist because I had the temerity to believe there is a fundamental flaw with Islam. You want proof look around you and read some of the writings by Ibrahim Al-Buleihi. There is your proof.

  10. Buddha,

    You owe me a beer, keyboard and paper-towel I had to use to clean the first off the second. Specifically, a Cinder Cone Red, Deschute’s Seasonal ale, and one my favorite summer beers.

  11. sicilian screams: WHY DON’T YOU JUST ADMIT YOU WERE WRONG BECAUSE IF you DID I WOULD STOP. AFTER ALL, I ADMITTED TO you THAT I WAS A CHILD AND IMMATURE. C’MON JUST ADMIT THAT YOU WERE IGNORANT TO THE FACTS ABOUT THE HISTORY OF THEhashemite’s and obviously jordan since you thought the hashemite’s were jordanians when in fact there is really no such thing being that jordan was carved off of the land by the brits to create a kingdom for the arabian tribe, the hashem’s. PLEASE JUST ADMIT IT SO I CAN GET ON WITH MY LIFE AND STOP HAVING TO ANSWER YOUR EVERY RETORT TO EXPOSE YOUR IGNORANCE ON THE TOPIC. please!!!!!! I actually have things to do and my family is getting upset that I am replying to your every post. please!!!!! admit you were wrong about the hashem’s. my ego demands it!!!!

    me: your ego demands it? your ego will have to learn some manners before I respond to anything you direct my way.
    grow up. get control of that nasty temper of yours. learn the art of civilized discourse. whether you get on with your life or not isn’t my problem, it is your problem.
    if your family is that bothered by your need to respond to me, my advice is this: find another hobby, one that is not as disruptive to your life and one that you clear with your family prior to forming an fixation on someone you don’t know and who does not return your feelings. maybe woodworking. or cake baking.

  13. gwlawschoolmom,

    your ATTEMPTS TO TRY TO CHANGE THE ISSUE WILL not WORK.

    you THOUGHT you WERE EXPOSING MY IGNORANCE WHEN IN FACT YOUR WORDS EXPOSED your OWN IGNORANCE.

    you WERE THE ONE WHO STATED THE INACCURACY THAT hashem’s were jordanian not arab. THAT WAS you WHO SAID THAT!!! you!!!!
    you HAVE no DEFENSE BECAUSE THAT IS absolutely WRONG!!!!THERE IS no DEBATE AND you KNOW IT. THAT IS WHY you TRY TO CHANGE THE ISSUE TO ME. GO AHEAD SAY WHATEVER you WANT ABOUT ME. OK I CONCEDE I AM A CHILD, I AM IMMATURE. OK you ARE RIGHT. NO DEBATE. you WIN ON THAT ACCOUNT. BUT ONE THING I do KNOW AND THAT IS THE HISTORY OF THE hashemite dynasty. I DO not SPEAK INACCURACIES AND THINK I’M GAINING POINTS. THAT WOULD CLEARLY BE you.

    WHY DON’T YOU JUST ADMIT YOU WERE WRONG BECAUSE IF you DID I WOULD STOP. AFTER ALL, I ADMITTED TO you THAT I WAS A CHILD AND IMMATURE. C’MON JUST ADMIT THAT YOU WERE IGNORANT TO THE FACTS ABOUT THE HISTORY OF THEhashemite’s and obviously jordan since you thought the hashemite’s were jordanians when in fact there is really no such thing being that jordan was carved off of the land by the brits to create a kingdom for the arabian tribe, the hashem’s. PLEASE JUST ADMIT IT SO I CAN GET ON WITH MY LIFE AND STOP HAVING TO ANSWER YOUR EVERY RETORT TO EXPOSE YOUR IGNORANCE ON THE TOPIC. please!!!!!! I actually have things to do and my family is getting upset that I am replying to your every post. please!!!!! admit you were wrong about the hashem’s. my ego demands it!!!!

    I’m SURE THERE IS STUFF YOU’RE KNOWLEDGABLE ABOUT THAT I COULD LEARN FROM YOU. IT OBVIOUSLY IS not MIDDLE EASTERN HISTORY.

    I JUST hope THAT WHEN you GRADUATE LAW SCHOOL AND BECOME A PRACTICING ATTORNEY you DO better leg-work FOR YOUR CLIENTS TO SAVE YOURSELF FROM DISBARMENT

  14. Sicilian writes: (actually shrieks) SO WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO SAY ABOUT THE hashem’s BEING arabs AND NOT
    jordanians. I THINK YOU MADE IT obvious THAT you DID not KNOW THAT WHAT IS today KNOWN AS jordan (originally trans-jordan) WAS A MODERN INVENTION BY THE brits after wwI.

    I do not respond to children who have temper tantrums. when you can get control of that nasty anger problem of yours and behave in a civilized way perhaps I will respond.

  15. Mike S,

    Thank you for acknowledging that I am voluable and wordy. I try to be.

    But tell me don’t you think it’s kind of funny that GWLSM was trying to call me out by claiming that, ‘Hashem’s are Jordan’s not Arabs’, when she didn’t even know the simple fact of the history of the Hashemite tribe?

    “Mespo,

    “You certainly did put it all in perspective.”

    **************

    Turley taught me. Somewhere between “The Producers,” Happy Goats, and “The Caine Mutiny” I finally figured it out. Must have been the strawberries!

  17. Mike S/Buddha:

    “I’m not being critical, but you do realize you could have said that all by asking mespo if he was “out of his Vulcan mind?” I’m just sayin’ . . . he is kind of our very own Italian Spock.”

    I don’t ever want to miss out on either of your analyses or comments, but this topic seems like the Gordian Knot to me. I await salient thoughts on other topics.

    Lunghi in tensione & prosperano!
