Islamic Barbarism of 2000 Ramallah Lynchings of IDF Soldiers Revealed

Transcripts from the interrogations of terrorists who killed Yossi Avrahami and Vadim Nurzhitz (z”l) released, show utter barbarism.

The Yediot Aharonot newspaper revealed Tuesday new details of the brutal murders of reservists Yossi Avrahami and Vadim Nurzhitz (z”l). The soldiers were lynched in Ramallah in October 2000.

The soldiers lost their way to their base on October 12, 2000, ending up in the Palestinian Authority (PA) controlled city of Ramallah by mistake. PA police forces took the two into custody.

Word reached local PA residents that undercover Israeli agents were being held in the building; some 1000 rioters reportedly gathered outside. The IDF declined to take action to rescue the soldiers; they were eventually stormed by the rioters.

One PA terrorist, Aziz Salha, got to the soldiers first, where he brutally murdered them – stabbing, beating, and dismembering them along with other rioters. He famously then stuck his bloodstained hands out of the window of the room where the two were held, eliciting cheers from the crowd.

The crowd then dragged the bodies to a central square, beating them further before setting up a victory celebration. PA police forces did not attempt to intervene and in some cases, participated in the barbarism.

A few weeks after the murder, the victims families filed a claim valuing 64 million shekels against the PA to the Jerusalem District Court. The victims were represented by attorneys Nitsana Darshan-Leitner and Roy Kochavi.

Now, transcripts of the terrorists’ remarks recorded during those proceedings have been released for the first time.

Ra’ad A-Sheikh, a Ramallah cop spotted a red Ford Sierra approaching the station. He asked the soldiers what they were doing in the city.

“They told me they lost their way and they need to get to Beth-El,” he said. Beth-El is close to Ramallah and is home to several central army bases in control of the Judea and Samaria region.

“I led the soldiers into the police station, after the crowds outside the station began pressuring me,” he claimed.

The terrorist cop took the soldiers to the second floor of the station. “I took a length of iron pipe – about 25 centimeters or so – and went into the room where there were two reservists.”

“I saw the soldier was alive and on his feet. I went over to the Russian soldier, and beat him with the tube I was holding in my hands. I then punched him in the head until the soldier began making gurgling noises.”

PA policeman Tariq Tabesh also participated in the murder. “I saw a soldier on the floor, laying facedown, crying and saying things in Hebrew that I couldn’t understand,” he told investigators. “I hit him on the back three times.”

Salha told investigators that he entered the fray after seeing a car with an Israeli license plate parked outside the police station. Israeli cars bear yellow license plates; PA cars bear white plates.

Salha alleged that the crowd encouraged him to enter the station. “I saw an Israeli soldier laying there, on his stomach,” he stated.

“I approached him and I saw a knife in his back right shoulder,” he continued. “I took the knife from the back of the soldier and stabbed him in the back two or three times, and left the knife in his back. Others in the room continued to hit the soldier in the legs.”

“After stabbing the soldier, I put my hand over his mouth to strangle him. I saw that my hands were stained with blood and my shirt covered in blood at the bottom, then went to the window and I waved my hands to people in the yard,” he recounted.

“Then I returned from the window and saw the other soldier lying on his stomach in one corner of the room.”

The trial against the terrorists is apparently still going, enraging the victims’ families after over 13 years of waiting. Michael Nurzhitz, Vadim’s brother, stated to the daily, “If I could sue the legal system [for taking so long], I would.”

“As if it’s not enough that the people who did this have not been punished for all that they did.”

Aziz Salha was released in 2011, as part of the terrorist exchange orchestrated between the PA and Israel for Gilad Shalit.

Given the large number of people involved in the lynching, several of the participants have never been caught for the murders – or have been tried in court proceedings that have dragged on for equally as long.

Attorney Nitsana Darshan-Leitner decried the length of the proceedings. “The Palestinian Authority has been exploiting its rights to a fair trial in order to conduct long discussions over nothing,” she stated.


Hamas To Produce Film on Gilad Shalit Kidnapping

Hamas’ cultural ministry is set to launch a film about Gilad Shalit’s captivity to emphasize that “force is the right opposition.”


The Islamist group of Hamas has announced plans this week to produce a film about the kidnapping and swap of Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit, a Hamas official told the Chinese news agency Xinhau.

According to a report from Mohammed Al-Ar’ir of the ministry of culture, the Hamas movement has allocated $100, 000 to produce the film, set to take place in the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip. The film will be produced by Al-Wataniya, a local media company.

The movie will not focus on or reveal any new details about how Hamas held Shalit for more than five years in Gaza since his capture in 2006. Rather, it will focus on “violent resistance,” which Hamas says is “the best option and only hope to free Palestinian lands and over 8,000 Palestinian prisoners still captive in the Israeli occupier’s prisons.”

Shalit was freed in October 2011 in exchange for more than 1,000 Palestinian Authority prisoners, one of which was recently killed in the Kalandiya riots in August when some 300 Arabs violently attacked IDF troops with firebombs. Of the three casualties, two were identified as known terrorists.

“The film’s production stems from the ministry’s desire to take part in social and cultural activity, and to spread and implement the resistance culture and the spirit of sacrifice in order to strengthen national Palestinian identity in the cultural sense,” the culture ministry expressed in an announcement.

According to Al-Ar’ir of the ministry of culture, “Capturing Shalit is an important event in the history of the Palestinian people and their resistance. That’s why we fete it in movies.”

The filming will begin in the coming days in Gaza to “boost Palestinian cinema production and because Gaza was the original time and place of the real scene,” Al-Ar’ir said.

Iran, Hamas’ main financial backer until 2012, was supposed to cover the budget of the movie, but the Iranian government refused to pay the money due to Hamas refusal to support Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in repressing the ongoing rebellion in his country, Al-Ar ‘ir said.

Hamas Murderes Gaza Taxi Driver for Complaining About Corruption

By //

Remember those “collaborators” that Hamas killed and dragged their bodies around behind motorcycles? None of them were collaborators. They were just political opponents of Hamas. A category that extends down to a Gaza taxi driver who criticized Hamas.

The “collaborator” was a taxi driver who would talk with his passengers about Hamas corruption. The “confession” includes his complaints about Suha Arafat stealing a fortune and spending it in Paris, Hamas stealing and storing fuel for its own purposes while Gazans went without, blaming Hamas for the blockade of Gaza, criticism of the kidnapping of Gilad Shalit, Hamas stealing money, the pointlessness of the 2009 Gaza war, Hamas indifference to the fate of ordinary Gazans, and Hamas importing luxury cars only for their own members.

The charge is that the driver was spreading rumors on the orders of Israeli intelligence. According to the site, he confessed.

No doubt the Mossad hired a taxi driver to bitch to his passengers about Hamas and Suha Arafat as part of a brilliant plan to take down Hamas.

Incidents like this remind us that Hamas is not just a terrorist group, it’s a totalitarian Muslim Brotherhood entity which seeks absolute power. Yes it wants to commit genocide, but it also wants to suppress all dissent as well. And it exploited the recent war that it began as a means of taking care of some of its critics.

Hamas’ idea of a collaborator is anyone who opposes its rule. That’s the same definition that the Muslim Brotherhood as a whole uses.
