Israeli analyst: Night raids should 'continue for years' after peace

BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- A military analyst said Friday that night raids and arrests in the West Bank "should continue for years" even after the signing of an Israeli-Palestinian peace agreement.

"The Palestinian opposition to the night arrests does not matter," military and security correspondent Roni Daniel told Israeli Channel 2. "Night arrests should continue for years even if there is a peace agreement."

Daniel added: "We arrest stone throwers. If we stop detaining them, the stones will turn to bullets."

Issa Qaraqe, Palestinian Authority minister of prisoners' affairs, told Ma'an that the PA completely rejects this view.

During US-moderated peace negotiations with Israel, Qaraqe said the US proposed a continued Israeli security presence in the Palestinian state after a peace agreement is reached.

The Israeli military carries out nightly raids on villages in the West Bank, in which soldiers regularly enter houses after midnight and detain Palestinians, often minors.

Over the past decade, Israeli forces have arrested, interrogated and prosecuted around 7,000 children between 12 and 17, mostly boys, at a rate equivalent to "an average of two children each day," according to a March report by the UN Children's Fund.

The internationally recognized Palestinian territories of which the West Bank and East Jerusalem form a part have been occupied by the Israeli military since 1967.

Surely the Palestinians don't think the Israelis are going to refrain from policing their bantustans?

The "PA completely rejects this view." In other words, Israel defense forces should not defend their citizens against lethal stone throwers, suicide bombers, terrorists planning ambuscades and etc. Israel should be passive in the midst of attack much like the Jewish citizenzry were in Geermany and eastern Europe before and during the Second World War. In other words, Jews should go willingly to their deaths. That's the upshot of the Maan article and perspective.

I have got a better idea, if there is a peace agreement, why not the Israeli forces raid new Palestinian mothers, arrest, interrogate and persecute their new born children and teach them not to throw stones at the Occupying Israelis Forces? Doesn’t Roni Daniel understand the meaning of peace?

"We arrest stone throwers" is not the entire truth. The truth is, the Israeli army only arrests Palestinian stone throwers, but NEVER Israeli stone throwers. A fact, that shows the apartheid-like regime Israel installed in the occupied territories.

#2 Robert Haymond, put away the victim card and stop usurping the Holocaust! Revisionist Zionism in Israel, sings from Hitler's hymn book!

As with the PA official talking about unity, this is a foolish comment. Also one guy writing checks with his mouth the Israeli government shouldn't cash.

The soldiers need something to do after all, to keep their hands in.

Alas! Robert's paltry comments shows that his memory is simply failing him. A fact that Israelis and those that support the illegal and inhumane apartheid policies of the state of Israel is that the pogroms and the holocaust was perpetrated in Europe by Europeans. There was no single Palestinian from this land forcing the Jews, at gun point, to the gas chambers. Stop using the victim card to justify Israel holocaust against the Palestinians...

Night raids NEED NOT "continue for years after peace" deal, - if such an agreement is ever reached, and - if the Palestinian government arrests terrorists, before Israel is forced to "raid"/arrest them, to prevent terrorism !!

To outlier #6: 'As with the PA official talking about unity, this is a foolish comment. Also one guy writing checks with his mouth the Israeli government shouldn't cash.' He's a visionary. We all know the future Israel dreams of.

Hey Aussie dolt Maureen, since your so used to using the victim card defending the actions of your terrorist bretheren, I think we supporters of Israel are quite entitled to to play that card when we hear about Israeli mothers who drive with their children to and from their settlements being hit with stones from your buddies, so your in no position to talk sh!t. G'day

Robert Haymond, you need to get your head out of the sand. The only terrorists in the region are Israelis. Get out of Palestine if you want your brave IOF to stop risking their lives at the hands of toddlers with pebbles.

Dear Maureen #5 and for the other cognitively impaired forum contributors to Maan of which there are many: Let me put this another way, a way which even you, Maureen, cannot fail to comprehend: Never Again!

To Robert Haymond #2: ' Israel should be passive in the midst of attack much like the Jewish citizenzry were in Geermany and eastern Europe before and during the Second World War.' There is the minor detail that the roles have been reversed. I note that you usually urge complete passivity for the Palestinians. How does it feel being the Master Race yourselves?

We do recall the murder of more than sixty Jews, Marie #8, in 1929, plus the rape of the female members of the community in Hebron, theft and pillaging of property and homes, for no other reason than they were Jews. Those who were not slaughtered managed to escape to Jerusalem and remained witness to the crimes of the Islamic community where they once resided. In your Pallywood fashion, however, you fail in your comprehension of history.

Israel does not arrest just stone throwers. They arrest anyone they like, brutally interogate kids, promise a lighter sentence if the confess, truthfully or not (no access to a parent or lawyer. Picture kids as young as 9 with a gun to their head begging for their lives (breaking the silence site). Most of these are people trying to regain access to their lands, farms, groves etc. They are often killed with rubber bullets to the head or teargas grenades to the chest or maimed with 22 calibre.

#14 Robert Haymond, stop the drama and usurping the Holocaust. It is nauseating. Israeli Zionists betrayed non Zionist Jews who were fleeing Europe WW2! You need to read: "Israel versus Judaism Holocaust Victims Accuse" Published in 1977 by Bnei Yeshivos 161 East Houston St., Suite 10 New York, NY 10013 http://www.israelversusjudaism.org/holocaust/victims.cfm
