Settler who attacked leftist rabbi: 'If I kill one it'll be over'

http://972mag.com/settler-who-attacked-leftist-rabbi-if-i-kill-one-itll-be-over/114233/

The Jewish extremist who allegedly attacked Rabbis for Human Rights head Arik Ascherman last month was indicted two weeks ago, charged with causing grievous bodily harm and possession of a knife and ammunition. The youth, 17 years old, is suspected of assaulting Ascherman near the settlement of Itamar as the rabbi was assisting Palestinians with their olive harvest.

Israel’s Channel 10 news conducted an interview with the suspect, himself from Itamar, after he was released to house arrest last Friday. His back turned to the camera to protect his identity, he accused human rights activists of being the source of tension his area, saying there needs to be “deterrence.”

“If I kill one of them it’ll be over. But that isn’t legal,” he said. “We need to deter them. They need to be made fearful. They need to receive a blow.”

Even the Channel 10 report, which did not appear to have sought a comment from Rabbi Ascherman, notes that given the severity of the charges against the youth, it is surprising that he was released to house arrest. His comments during the interview do little to assuage concerns over his release.


Israel apparently excuses the actions of its knife-crazed colonial terrorists while a palestinian child that throws a rock would get a bullet in the back.

I'm sure some well-meaning hasbarist will be by to tell me that the knife-crazed colonial terrorist was just misunderstood or a phantome of everybody's imagination.

1. Arik Ascherman was indicted two weeks ago, charged with causing grievous bodily harm.

What are you talking about? He was charged with a serious crime, and if convicted will do serious time.

2. The terrorist was released to house arrest, and is still making

 

threats of violence.

Most Palestinians who engage in the same activity are summarily executed.
