Palestinians Complain We Do Not Do Enough To Stop Arabs From Maiming & Murdering Each Other

Palestinian propaganda site Quds News Network recently published this post on its Facebook page:

Pretty much everything on their site is designed to somehow demonize Israel, and this post is no exception – they are referring to Arab-Israeli protests in Israel, against Israel of course.

And what is this “criminality” they speak of?

Thousands of Arab Israelis held protests Friday at the conclusion of prayers, a day after a general strike over a wave of deadly violence within the minority community.

Police say there have been more than 70 killings in Arab communities this year, nearly as many as in each of the past two years, when Arabs, who are 20 percent of the general population, made up more than half of all murder victims nationwide. Earlier this week, two brothers and a third individual were killed in a brawl involving guns and knives in Majd al-Krum.

Arab leaders say Israeli police largely ignore the violence in their communities, everything from family feuds and mafia turf wars to domestic violence and so-called honor killings.

In other words, they are complaining Israeli police do not do more to stop their own people* from maiming and butchering each other. This is peak palestinian: Blaming everything on Israel rather than taking responsibility for their own actions.

For the record, police are trying to address the issues but it is not so simple

“Police are continuing to speak to the leaders of the communities in order to try and prevent the incidents from taking place, but at the same time they are also working inside the communities, patrolling more,” police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said.

He said seven new police stations have been opened in Arab communities this year and there are plans to open eight more in the coming months. This year alone, police have confiscated 4,000 weapons and arrested some 2,800 people on weapons-related charges, according to Rosenfeld.

But he said local leaders need to do more to cooperate with police and to prevent violence.

“It has to come also from inside the community,” he said. “They can’t just, you know, decide at a wedding to open fire and shoot in the air. These are basic issues that have to be dealt with by the leaders of the communities.”

But think about it for a second: this website that believes Israel should be destroyed – that cannot even mention the name “Israel” – is essentially complaining that we are not doing more to intervene in the lives of “palestinians.” Once again, I have to thank this propaganda site for yet another “own goal.”

Oh, and don’t think for a second if we did intervene more strongly, that they would not be condemning us for that too.

*not that most Israeli Arabs identify as palestinians – they don’t
