Latest Libel: Israeli Border Police Officer Executed Palestinian Arab in Cold Blood
Yesterday, Al Jizz, Mohammed El-Kurd, and other antisemitic terror supporters shared this video of a supposed “execution” of a palestinian Arab man:
Here is what actually happened:
An Israel Border Police officer was lightly injured in a stabbing attack that occurred after a Palestinian, identified as Ammar Mefleh, attempted to break into a vehicle with an Israeli couple inside, the Border Police said.
After he realized the car door was locked, he tried to break into it using a stone, before being shot by the driver – an IDF officer on leave.
Mefleh then approached a team of Border Police soldiers and stabbed one of them in the face, lightly injuring him. Graphic footage posted to social media showed another Border Police officer trying to arrest Mefleh as two other Palestinians attempted to pull him away from the officer.
The officer then put Mefleh in a headlock, pulling him away from the other Palestinians until he broke free from the officer’s grasp. The attacker then appeared to grab for the officer’s weapon. At that point the officer pulled his handgun and fired four shots at Mefleh at point black range, killing him.
The officer told Israeli TV that he feared that had Mefleh succeeded in grabbing his gun, he would have used it for a terror attack against motorists. Plus I posit that if you stab an officer in the face and try to grab their gun, in any country, and you will end up swimming with the fishes.
Here is a photo of the knife and the officer’s face wound:.
This was no mere “scuffle” as Tor Wennesland, the United Nations Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process(!), would have you believe:
It was attempted murder. And had the soldier not neutralized the terrorist, not only may he have been a victim, but others might have as well.
