Let Me Guess…The Donut Store Was Closed That Night?

From the Department of Wasted Taxpayers’ Dollars:

A Jerusalem court has awarded three Israeli far-right activists NIS 4.500 (that should read 4,500 – ed.) each in damages after they were detained by Jerusalem police for publicly celebrating the death of the late Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat four years ago, court documents released Sunday showed.

The three men, Itamar Ben-Gvir, Baruch Ben-Yosef and Israel Bramnson, had been taken in for questioning by police after holding an honorary barbecue in a central Jerusalem square in November 2004 following news of Arafat’s death.

The three activists, who had filed suit against the State, were detained by police for three hours after refusing to vacate the site, and were later released without being charged.

“The venue in which the plaintiffs chose to express their joy is one of the city’s hubs and is no stranger to rallies and demonstrations,” Judge Aryeh Romanoff wrote in his ruling, rejecting the state’s claim the group caused a public disturbance by the gathering.

If celebrating the death of arch terrorist Arafat makes someone far-right, then I’m guessing most of Israel would be far-right.

Meanwhile, 4,500 NIS multipled by 3 will buy a hell of a lot of steak.

What do you say, guys?
