Stones Kill: Culture of Hate

“We are safe in our city,” Alexander Levlovitch had told his family.

Tzur Baher is not a religious Muslim neighborhood, its people have good relations with Israeli government officials.

However, Mohammed Salah Mohammed Abu Khaf, 19; Walid Fares Mustapha Atrash, 19; Abed Mahmoud Abed Rabo Dawiat, 20; and a minor from Tzur Baher are accused of killing Levlovitch.

A security video turned over to investigators showed the stone throwers on Rosh Hashannah night. They aimed. Their stones hit Levlovitch’s car as he was driving on a main street near Ramat Rachel.

Tsur Baher

This is the spot where the car went off the road, over the wide sidewalk and through the fence after hitting a pole.

The video shows the stone throwers running into Tzur Baher.

PLO secretary-general Saeb Erekat said on Saturday that the new Israeli rules of engagement, which permit police to use live ammunition to stop Arab stone and Molotov-cocktail throwers, “dehumanize” the Palestinians. He said the “Israeli government continues to incite against Palestinian lives, with a culture of hate that dehumanizes a whole nation,” Ma’an reported.

Dehumanize?

The PA incitement is turning young men from good communities into killers by promoting a culture of hate.

Stones kill.

The stone throwers have to be stopped. By promoting, protecting, defending and rewarded violence, PA officials have succeeded in dehumanizing their young.
