Hebron schoolgirl says Israeli soldier threatened to kill her

HEBRON (Ma'an) -- An Israeli soldier threatened to kill a Palestinian girl in Hebron on Wednesday.

Asil Jabir, a pupil at Taysir Maraqa preparatory school, said that she was heading to school with some of her friends when a female Israeli soldier stationed at a checkpoint near the Ibrahimi Mosque forced the group to go back.

The girls were forced to take a bypass route to reach the school, which Asil said Israeli forces usually allow them to use.

Hours later, the schoolgirls returned via the same checkpoint.

"Nobody opposed us, but all of a sudden, the same female soldier, who was hiding, surprised me from the back and grabbed my neck tightly," Asil said.

"She then cuffed my hands and took me to a nearby military post. She tried to bring me into a cabin by force, but I opposed while she was kicking my feet and knocking my chest with her rifle. She threatened to kill me, and whenever somebody came close she asked me to tell them to go away or otherwise she will kill me."

Asil was released after about an hour. The Israeli soldier told her that she would kill her the next time she saw her, Asil said.

In March, Israeli military forces arrested some 30 students who were on their way to school in the southern area of Hebron.

Israeli rights group B'Tselem on Wednesday said Israel's mass arrest of children in Hebron was "unacceptable," and released a video of the detentions.

"This type of mass arrest of a group of minors, not on the basis of individual suspicions is unacceptable, even if the minors are formally over the age of criminal responsibility," B'Tselem said in a statement.

It all sounds vaguely like 'Walking Dead' -- except of course that the Palestinians mustn't kill the zombies.

Female thugs in Zionazi uniform heaping more shame on the wanna be Jewish state of so called Israel.

Supposedly she physically fought this soldier, even hitting a rifle with her chest, but was released an hour later unscathed. Haha what a stupid story. IF the IDF were half as bad as she imagines, she would have been beaten and put into prison. Than you Ma'an for proving that Israel isnt evil.

Bullies and sadists aren't happy. They're powerful, relatively, because their victims are so vulnerable. But no great joy flows from terrorising the defenseless. Just disgust and self-hatred. Judaism, in its dark and murky soul has never realised the power of goodness which is central to more advanced religions. People PRETEND it does with claims about "monotheism" (which is supposed to be a good thing though I've never got why and the emphasis on "Law") but in the fine print, it's only "Jews"

(contd.) which matter and the rest of humanity is regarded with contempt. This is a creepy story: a sadistic young Jewish soldier terrorising a schoolgirl in the Jewish created nightmare of Hebron. I suppose Arab girls sit below her on the tribal pecking order and are an obvious target. There are lots of images of Palestinian schoolgirls setting off for school in cute white scarves, colourful umbrellas and SpongeBob SquarePants backpacks. (Our soft-hearted colleague Colin indicated a favourite

(contd.) a while back.) They're touching because though the environment they're walking through is like Dresden after the firebombing, they're carrying on with normal life...WHERE THEY LIVE. They're indomitable and they're HOME. It's their rootedness that the sadistic soldier is responding to with resentment and hate. SHE has clearly been told that SHE has the special bond with the land, that SHE belongs, that it's HERS. But what about Asil Jabir? Palestinians have lived in Hebron since

(contd.) they were El and Yahweh-worshipping Canaanites. SOMETHING is disturbing this young soldier. Why else would she torture a little girl? Perhaps it's because she knows Asil and her friends have the REAL indestructible bond with Palestine and that they are HOME in a way SHE never will be. Perhaps behind the cruelty is the inchoate realisation that Jews like her are the alien presence, that she's been fed a big lie, and as a soldier, is required to enforce it.

To ian #6: '... It's their rootedness that the sadistic soldier is responding to with resentment and hate...' I wonder what it was, actually. In the IDF, female recruits are known as 'mattresses.' If that Palestinian girl had caught the eye of Miss IDF's lover, and she had noticed it, she may have attacked out of irrational jealousy. That's just speculation, but it does account for the evidence presented.

#3 "Than you Ma'an for proving that Israel isnt evil." Incoherent, Rachamim, though it does raise doubts about you. A little girl on her way to school is threatened and traumatised by an Israeli soldier and it doesn't register because she's not a Jew. Instead we get a witticism about her being "beaten and put into prison". May G-d have mercy on your soul. (But then you did try to claim the Palestinians ACCEPTED Olmert's "napkin map" proposal a while back...)

It's getting a bit lonely here. What's up? None of the gang willing to defend a soldier threatening to kill a school girl? Nothing about security or children groomed as suicide bombers or the threat to guards of a SpongeBob SquarePants schoolbag full of shrapnel? Nothing about Pallywood? Aborigines? Palestinian apartheid? Surely Colin's novel take deserves a comment or two. Are you slipping?

To ian #4: (I) ' Judaism, in its dark and murky soul has never realised the power of goodness which is central to more advanced religions. People PRETEND it does with claims about "monotheism" (which is supposed to be a good thing though I've never got why and the emphasis on "Law") but in the fine print, it's only "Jews"' To be fair, there is a more universalist strand to Judaism. Israel represents Judaism -- but only the worst elements of the religion.

To Ian #4: (II) One could say that Israel is to Judaism as Nazism was to nationalism; a morbid exaggeration of everything that was worst in the parent ideology. It no more follows that Judaism is inherently evil than that some man standing for 'God Save the King' is inherently evil. We can, however, look at both Israel and Nazism and say 'that wasn't the way to go.' (Now, if that doesn't flush the quail out of the brush, I don't know what will.)

@10 I simply do not have the time to read Colin Wright's three posts. I hope he became very excited, and reached for the vaseline jar and had another wank over Ma'an's news item.

#13 So 'Crystal', in a story about an Israeli soldier terrorising a Palestinian schoolgirl in a display of naked sadism by repeatedly threatening to kill her, you couldn't find a worthier target for an outburst of obscene vitriol?

You can't expect Zionists to come up with actual arguments in defense of their position -- there aren't any. They do what they can.
