Briefing by Brig. Gen. Nitzan Alon Regarding Shooting Near Joseph’s Tomb
Below is the email from the New English Review that alerted me to this incident:
Watch this IDF video of the commander of the Judea and Samaria Division discussing the killing of an Israeli at Joseph’s tomb. Note that Palestinian Security forces perpetrated the killing. This killing comes after last month’s slaughter of five members of the Fogel family in the community of Itamar in Samaria. The perpetrators came from the neighboring Arab village and were members of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine. So this is the payback for hundreds of millions US taxpayer funds used to train these PA security forces. Time for Members of Congress
to raise this and the other matter: the hundreds of millions ‘donated’ via our State Department that have mindlessly supported the 60+ years eyesores of four generations in UNWRA (The United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East) Palestinian refugee camps inciting hatred of the Jewish state of Israel.
UPDATE: The Muqata files this report:
Early this morning (5:40AM), after finishing their prayers a carload of Breslev Hassidim were attacked by Palestinian policemen.
Originally 3 carloads of Jews arrived at the tomb to pray, but PA policemen waiting there shot in the air and 2 of the cars immediately left. The third carload of Breslevers stayed to pray.
After the prayers, when the Hassidim were driving out, the Palestinian policemen (trained and funded by the US) drove their PA police jeep up to the car with the Hassidim in it and opened fire.
One Israeli, Ben-Yosef Livnat (age 30) was killed and 3 more injured. Livnat is the nephew of Minister Limor Livnat.
