B’Tselem’s Pathetic Press Release

btselem_logo“Human rights” organization B’Tselem have published a call for the release of the three Israeli teenagers.

But (predictably) they could not bring themselves to leave it at that. Half the statement deals with what Israel needs to do to uphold human rights.

Those holding the three yeshiva students must release them at once; Israeli security forces must uphold human rights and avoid collective punishment

B’Tselem shares the great concern and worry over the fate of the three abducted yeshiva students, two of them minors. B’Tselem also shares the fervent hope that the three teens will be returned safe and sound to their homes. B’Tselem reiterates its position that any deliberate attack against civilians is absolutely prohibited. Those currently holding the teens must release them without delay.

Along with the efforts by the Israeli security forces to exhaust all possible avenues of investigation in order to locate the abducted youths and bring them safely home, the authorities must adopt every possible measure at their disposal to uphold human rights. Israeli authorities must also refrain from meting out collective punishment to the local population. Likewise, the security forces must take whatever steps necessary to prevent any violence directed at Palestinians.

Thanks for telling us what we can and can’t do. The priority has to be to get the boys back. And I suggest those handing out sweets in the streets stay indoors at that time.

    Meanwhile, Dickie Silverslime openly blames Israel for the kidnappings and obliquely (through one of his groupies, who may, or may not be a real person) implies that Israel herself was behind the kidnapping.
    Just when you thought the scumbag could sink no lower…

    “I have heard rumors – but been unable to substantiate – that Bibi was told by his intelligence advisers that a kidnapping / abduction would be politically convenient for him. Apparently this was in the last week or so – certainly since the Palestinian unity government was sworn in. Is there any merit in this?”

      rumors started by the american bdsholes…..who made it up

    it is not collective punishment to round up suspects and at this time, every hamas operative in the judea and samaria is a suspect

    and the jew haters of btselem can piss off

    Since B’Tselem is funded by generous contributions from the EU, it’s time to block those incoming funds.

    I am afraid that those boys are dead in some ditch and I wish that Israel kiils all its prisoners and bans B’Tselem as a subversive organization. Netanyahu tlks tough and carries a toothpick. sireal needs to do something about this hitchhiking menace in the West Bank.

      No, let’s not wish that Israel kills all its prisoners.

        Only those with blood on their hands. Anyone who thinks that these terrorist murderers can be “corrected” is a fool.

          I sympathize with your emotions, but still think calling for blood vengeance is misplaced. None of these b*stards was sentenced to death (no capital punishment under Israeli law) so there is no legal vehicle anyway. I don’t think anyone in the government thinks the terrorist/murderers can be rehabilitated; that’s not the purpose of their imprisonment.

          • Norman_In_New_York

            They should never have been taken prisoner in the first place. Let them have their 15 minutes of martyrdom. It’s far better than making them wards of Israel’s taxpayers in perpetuity.

    “Israeli authorities must also refrain from meting out collective punishment to the local population.”
    I can’t recall anyone suggesting to hang 6 Palies as revenge for the three abducted teenagers.
    Most of the civilian Palies who die are the result of Hamas using them as human shields.
