Gulf News reports about a supposed incident in which Israelis stripped a palestinian woman of her clothes.
Ramallah: A group of Israelis attacked a Palestinian woman in the village of Lebnan Al Sharq on Wednesday afternoon, tearing off her clothes in front of her husband and son who retaliated by attacking the colonists, injuring one. The Israeli military allowed the gang to beat the Palestinian husband Khaled Sameeh Daraghmah and his son Sameeh before they arrested the two men and removed them from the area.
Ghassan Doghlous, the Palestinian official in charge of colonial activities in northern areas of the West Bank told Gulf News that the Israeli colonists targeted Khaled’s house which is located at the village’s side and not surrounded by neighbours.
“The colonists targeted the woman and tore her clothes off, knowing that such an action would badly humiliate the husband and the son,” he said. “The man and his son could not stand the attack and responded.”
Palestinian youths will provide dog watches on shifts.”
Doghlous stressed that Israeli colonists attempt to show they exist in number and in strength. “The Israeli colonists demonstrate that they form an independent army with a deterrent strength that can not be ignored,” he said.
The story has been picked up by many sites - almost exclusively of the anti-Israel and antisemitic kind – even though the only news source for this is Gulf News. Even the likes of the palestinian Ma’an News did not report any such incident. And you can be sure they would have, had there been even a sniff of it happening.
In other words, what we have here is yet another blood libel against Jews living in Israel, eagerly perpetuated by those whose hatred for us far outweighs their desire for truth and justice.
