A palestinian who tried to inflict severe bodily harm on our soldiers was on the receiving end of some harm himself – or rather his end received some harm – after an army dog bit him. He did not like the feeling of getting hurt and is now suing the dog breeder in Holland.
No, this is not a
sick sic joke. It really happened.
Hamze Abu Hashem was bitten in 2014 while throwing stones at Israeli soldiers, according to the Telegraaf daily’s report Thursday on the unusual lawsuit. He sued the Four Winds K9 dog breeding company in the southern Netherlands for $13,500 in damages.
The company says it is not responsible for what Israel does with its army dogs.
Liesbeth Zegveld, Abu Hashem’s attorney in the Netherlands, told the Algemeen Dagblad daily that the money is for psychological damage sustained by her client. She is also seeking an injunction outlawing the sale of dogs to Israel.
“My client bears serious scars that will remain with him for the rest of his life,” Zegveld told the daily. “He is also deeply traumatized by the attack. He shakes when he hears dogs barking, he is too afraid to sleep and suffers from sleepwalking.”
Here’s hoping he’s also now too afraid TO THROW ROCKS!
