Price Tag and Extremist Attacks in Israel August 5, 2015
Since 2008, there have been repeated attacks carried out by extremist Israeli Jews against Israeli Arabs and Palestinians, often in reprisal for Israeli government action against illegal settlement activity. These attacks, which are frequently labeled "price tag" incidents, target mosques, churches, Arab and Jewish homes and property, Israeli military bases and vehicles, as well as other Israeli Jews. They involve the desecration of property with anti-Arab and anti-government slogans. Most of these attacks include the phrase "price tag" and are accompanied by hateful and racist slogans, the name of an illegal settlement, or a reference to an Israeli casualty of Palestinian terrorism, the implication being that the violent incident is the "cost" of Israeli government action on settlements or for anti-Israeli violence.
More recently, there have been a number of violent and deadly arson attacks carried out by extremists who, according to Israeli law enforcement, seek to destabilize the country and overthrow the Israeli government in order to establish a new regime to be based on Jewish law.
The Israeli police have established a special unit tasked with cracking down on those committing price tag assaults. The unit has thus far had minimal success.
Late last week, the Jewish world found itself horrified by two murders, both apparently committed by religious Jews.
The second murder came just hours after the parade stabbings.
Early Friday morning, two Palestinian homes were set ablaze in the West Bank town of Duma. The inhabitants of one, the Dawabsha family, stumbled frantically through heavy smoke to escape. The parents and four-year-old son finally managed to get out, seriously injured by the smoke and flames; the four-year-old suffered burns over 60 percent of his body. But 18-month-old Ali Saad Dawabsha remained inside and was burned to death in the conflagration.
Graffiti on the house, written in Hebrew and mentioning "Moshiach" and "price tag," indicated that the attack was carried out by Jews, and the Shin Bet has since stated that it believes that members of an extremist religious Jewish group were responsible.

... Yesha settlers council head Danny Dayan also denounced the attack on the mosque, saying that anyone who took part in "price tag" attacks is "both a criminal and a fool." Dayan said that such incidents harm the settler cause and called out against those in the settlement movement who failed to condemn the acts.
Former Shin Bet deputy director MK Yisrael Hasson (Kadima) told Israel Radio that the attack was likely perpetrated by youths acting independently and not by people being directed by a central authority.
PM condemns 'horrific, heinous terror attack' on Palestinians/ Army beefing up West Bank presence in fear of riots after baby burned to death; politicians denounce attack; Lapid: We're at war with an enemy within
The leadership of the Union of Orthodox Jewish Congregations of America strongly condemns today's apparent "price tag" attack by Israelis on a Palestinian home near Nablus—burning homes and murdering an infant. Such a heinous act offends all people of good will and violates basic Jewish values.
Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan said in the afternoon that the police force was at its highest alert level to prevent disturbances. He added that "a people whose children were burned in the Holocaust needs to soul-searching at a time like this."
Ghasan Gaghlas, a Palestinian official from the area, said Jewish settlers broke the window of the house and flung a burning object inside, "causing a quick and huge fire."
[MK Gilad Erdan is a good guy but why did he have to believe the Palestinian official and that Jews did it? My comments RT]
Palestinian Baby Burnt to Death in Suspected 'Jewish Terror' Attack By Harriet Salem
July 31, 2015Israel 'Ignored Warnings' on Jewish Terror Cells Before Attack that Killed 18-Month-Old Baby By Harriet SalemAugust 4, 2015The existence of Jewish terror cells [fabricated existence my comments RT] capable of carrying out deadly terror attacks and seeking to topple Israel's government have been well-known to the country's intelligence service for years. Yet in the wake of an arson attack that killed an 18-month old Palestinian baby on July 31, it has emerged that security advice about the hardline groups was apparently ignored by politicians...."The Shin Bet [security service] asked the government on several occasions for the capacity to use administrative detention and other intelligence resources against these [Jewish] radicals and it was denied," Lior Akerman a former Shin Bet division head of internal security in the occupied territories told VICE News."These people, their names, where they are living and operating, their extremist websites and blogs where they write are familiar to security services… They are very fanatical and dangerous. They have no respect for the Israeli law, the police, Shin Bet; they don't care, they believe only in God's rules so they will do whatever is needed according to this fundamentalist interpretation of the religion [Judaism]."
I probably fit their description of being fanatical and dangerous since I have this blog which some might find offensive. Dr. Aaron Lerner August 5, 2015 Weekly Commentary: Confusing bad taste for illegal activity counter productive http://www.imra.org.il/story.php3?id=68052 teaches us how confusing offensive language with truly illegal activity is counter productive because this may serve to actually reduce the degree of unacceptability oftruly illegal behavior. .Honestly, does the passionate Jewish dream of generations, to return to Zion as of Days of Old, the daily prayers of our people, translate into lack of respect for the Israeli law, the police, Shin Bet and the desire to do whatever is needed according to this fundamentalist interpretation of the religion [Judaism}?Only when accompanied by unlawful acts of violence.Therefore, the blood Libel. If one wishes to successfully discredit this group of "fanatical and dangerous Jewish radicals" then they need to fabricate their acts of violence.This false implicit condemnation of the religious Zionist is replayed by news report after news report. What is very disturbing is that not only do the leftist Jewish media rush to condemn the Religious Zionists but so do other religious leaders, religious orgs, MK's, religious magazines and religious and secular media. Condemnation almost cross the board even among the higher ups in the Nationalist camp. Even though past history has shown that the trustworthiness of the initial police report based on an Arab's testimony is suspect.No fair hearing. No fair trial. No conviction of a Jewish Settler as hard as they try...But the defamation of the entire religious Zionist community by apparent conclusions of suspecting our own.......Even the Times of Israel, seemed by many as a voice of the Prime Minister allow their readers to believe that the Prime Minister finds the religious Zionist Enterprise at fault. While the actual text of the PM's statement does not put the blame on the Settlers directly, by implication it does. Why did Times of Israel juxtapose the condemnation of the PM with the assumption it was the Religious Zionists?? They even quote Danny Dayan, a Yesha Council Head, condemning the arson. In my mind that also makes Danny Dayan suspect. Am I paranoid? It was only 10 years ago that the The Yesha Council Heads corroborated with the Gov't of Israel during the Gush Katif expulsion or Churban as Helen Freedman described it at the annual AFSI Jabotinsky Memorial event.Why didn't Dayan stick up for the people in Yesha? Why didn't he point out that there have been 177 incidences of violent murderous terror attacks upon Jewish children by Arabs and there was only 1 proven nonmilitary attack by Jews upon an Arab teen and after a full investigation the perpetrators were found to be secular Soccer thugs, a close-knit gang of Beitar Jerusalem fans known as 'La Familia' and not Religious Zionists after all. http://www.tabletmag.com/jewish-news-and-politics/178232/soccer-thugs-in-jerusalem? We still don't know for sure what happened in Duma but I would bet my money that it was not Jews who burnt this Arab baby and family.177 Jewish children murdered by known Arab terrorists (glorified and often compensated for their acts of terror funded by American taxpayer money. Please read Edwin Black Financing the Flames). Where is the same condemnation by Jews for these Jewish children murdered by Arab terrorists? It's never too late to rectify this omission....Leo Alexander Sendler, age 5Gabriel Sendler, age 3Daniel Aryeh Viflich, age 16Elad Fogel, age 4Hadas Fogel, age 1Yoav Fogel, age 10Jonathan Palmer, age 1Shlomo Nativ, age 13Segev Peniel Avihayil, age 15Yonatan Yitzhak Aldar, age 16Yonadav Haim Hirschfeld, age 18Neria Cohen, age 15Yochai Lifshitz, age 18Avraham David Moses, age 16Roey Aaron Roth, age 18Anas Awisat, age 18Khaled al Ziyadat, age 12Fathi Assadi, age 4Eliyahu Pinchas Ashrai, age 18Raviah Taluzi, age 6Mahmoud Taluzi, age 4Mazal Zaribi, age 15Daniel Welch, age 16Muhammad Hamudi Faoure, age 17Dua Abbas, age 16Amir Naim, age 17Shaked Lasker, age 16Omar Manasseh Visachov, age 8Ella Abuksis, age 17Rachel Helli Ben-Abu, age 16Oz Yisraeli Ben-Meir, age 14Nufar Hurvitz, age 16Avihay Levy, age 16Aviad Yehuda Mansour, age 15Yuval Ababa, age 4Afik ZahaviOhayon, age 3Lior Azulai age 18Aviel Yitzchak Atash, age 3Khalil Zatunyah, age 9Dorit Masrat Binsan, age 2Ronnie Sarah Hatuel, age 6Meirav Rachel Hatuel, age 2Hilo Esther Hatuel, age 10Hadar Simcha Hatuel, age 9Binaya Yonatan Zuckerman, age 18Lior Liorinkha Niv age 3Gilad Giladi Niv, age 11Qamar abu-Hamed, age 13Shaked Avraham, age 1Tomer Almog, age 9Haviv Dadon, age 16Benjamin Bergman, age 15Avraham Bar-Or, age 12Samuel Zargary, age 1Noya Zer-Aviv, age 1Liran Zer-Aviv, age 4Erez Gizro Hershkowitz, age 18Tom Hershko, age 15Daniel Harush, age 16Shmuel Taubenfeld, age 1Moran Menachem, age 17Yuval Mendelevich, age 13Abigail Leital, age 14Noam Leibowitz, age 7Samich Sarsur, age 10Muhammad Sarsur, age 12Tehilla Natnazan, age 3Elisheva Mashulmi, age 16Elizabeth Liz Katzman, age 19Assag Balondi Tzur Tzolinger, age 17Smadar Firsteter, age 16Assaf Shteir, age 10Issachar Dov Reinitz, age 9Tal Kerman, age 17Shani Avitzedek Abotzedakah, age 16Osnat Abramov, age 16Matan Ohayon, age 5Noam Levy Ohayon, age 4Yael Ohana, age 11Orly Ophir, age 15Noa Auerbach, age 18Dvir Anter, age 14Yaakov Avraham Eliyahu, age 1Lidor Ilan, age 11Oriya Ilan, age 1Gal Eisenman, age 5Galila Bogela, age 11Hodaya Hodiyosh Asraf, age 13Noi Anter, age 12Shoval Tzion Dickstein, age 9Elmer Dazbrailov, age 16Adi Dahan, age 17Yehonatan Gamliel, age 16Hadar Hershkowitz, age 14Rachel Gila Teller, age 16Gabriel Choter, age 17Shmuel Efraim Yerushalmi, age 17Atara Libna, age 15Rachel Heli Levy, age 17Shiraz Nechmad, age 6Shaul Nechmad, age 15Liran Nechmad, age 3Avraham Eliyahu Nechmad, age 16Baruch Asher Zvi Marcus, age 18Aviha Malka, Age 1Nehemia Amar, age 15Lino Sarussi, age 14Avraham Yosef Haim Sitton, age 17Gaston Farfi Farfiniel, age 15Ilan Perlman, age 8Aharon Mordechai Eric Karogliak, age 18Sinai Keinan, age 1Tal Zvi Talik Kurzweil, age 18Ran Korn, age 18Gal Korn, age 14Assaf Moses Tzfira, age 18Abraham Neriah Shebo, age 16Avishai Joseph Shebo, age 5Keren Shatsky, age 14Netanel Riahi, age 17Erez Shlomo Rond, age 18Ofer Ron, age 18Yafit Revivo, age 14Daniel Bat-El Shefi, age 5Adi Shiran, age 17Sarah Tiferet Shilon, age 1Gilad Stiglitz, age 14Tzvi Yaakov Yisrael Shebo, age 12Hadas Turgeman, age 14Michael Szerszevski, age 16Assaf Avitan, age 15Irina Osdetchi, age 18Yosef Ish-Ran, age 14Yossi Elezra, age 18Yuri Gostz'inm age 18Marina Berkovsky, age 17Shoshana Rachel Shushi Ben-Yishai, age 16Adam Weinstein, age 14Israel Yaakov Danino, age 17Jenia Dorfman, age 16Ido Cohen, age 18Maria Tegiltzab, age 14Tamar Mesengiser, age 8Jacob Koby Mandell, age 13Aliza Malka, age 16Mariana Medvedenko, age 16Naftali Ben-Zion Lentzakron, age 13Ronen Landau, age 17Alexei Lufalo, age 17Raya Sachiweschurder, age 14Hemda Bracha Sachiweschurder, age 2Abraham Yitzchak Sachiweschurder, age 4Irina Nafomniastzi, age 16Raisa Nemirovsky, age 15Yerena Nemilov, age 18Julia Nemilov, age 16Avraham Nahman Avrum Nichni, ageShalhebet Tehiya Pas, age 1Yair Amar, age 13Julia Yael Sklianik, age 15Liana Sakian, age 16Michal Sarah Raziel, age 16Malki Chana Roth, age 15Eliran Rosenberg, age 14Simona Rodin, age 18Menashe Manny Regev, age 14Katrina Arias, age 15Anya Aniota Kazachkov, age 16Golan Turgeman, age 15Yocheved Shushan, age 10Judah Shoham, age 1Ophir Rachum, age 17Gil-Ad Shaar, age 16Naftaly Frenkel, age 16Adelle Biton, age 4Yael Botwin, age 14Chaya Zissel Braun, age 3 months
Thank you Joe Settler for this comprehensive list!http://www.jewishpress.com/blogs/muqata/how-many-children-have-these-terrorists-murdered/2015/08/02/
The Jewish hilltop youth have no history of proven criminal murderous violence against Arab children.However, there IS is a long history of trying to convince the public that they are dangerous and violent and unlawful especially following immoral and illegal demolitions of settler homes.So I ask, is there really a need for a special commission to target the Jewish hilltop youth?Let me suggest that this is done to rationalize and/or justify Jewish violence perpetrated against thriving communities of Judea, Gush Katif, the Shomron by the government of Israel who betray(ed) their own by destroying their homes and communities and continue to do so sparking a wave of Arab violence. http://shemittahrediscovered.blogspot.com/2015/07/a-protest-letter-to-knesset-members.htmlLeHefech, On the contrary. This community, representing Religious Zionism have been exemplary in transforming their pain and suffering into positive action of rebuilding. and to their credit have not engaged in violent acts of terror even when their accusers almost wish it upon them, in order to perhaps alleviate their own Jewish guilt and psychological suffering in being complicit in acts of property violence, and even personal violence against their own fellow Jew. How sad....Moral of story is MKs, Rabbis, Jewish Organizations and Newspapers, Don't believe the Police and Don't believe the Shin Bet nor the Arab who testify when it comes to Price Tag reports and allegations! Don't rush to condemn your fellow Jew and especially not the Torah observant Jews or their youth, living in Judea and Samaria.It makes perfect sense for Arabs to project their interpretation of revenge, set up a false narrative and proceed to slander/ libel Jews . It works! It provides a convenient excuse and sickening cover and backdrop to then terrorize additional Jewish settlers in Israel while Israel's elite, government officials, etc. world Jewry, Jewish media are sidetracked and can't act fast enough with apologetics and self righteous moral equivalency condemnations of their own people. Implicit in such condemnation is that the "Jewish religious fanatics, the settler community, the religious Zionists are guilty until proven innocent.The Arabs and Israel's attackers have a hey day. See, Israel too have their terrorists...Our enemies probably derive much satisfaction from seeing how Jews verbally attack fellow Jews based on false allegations and narratives. ... "Hamas had already declared Friday a "Day of Rage" to protest the deaths of several Palestinians by Israeli forces in the past few weeks, and demonstrations were expected to escalate into violence."Jews of Judea and Samaria know that rebuilding is the best kind of Revenge against the evil decrees that demolished their homes at the whims of those beholden to the likes of Obama. They do not and have not engaged in terrorism as do their enemies who destroy and uproot as their Modus operandi.
