Hebron funeral becomes target of 'skunk' weapon     Elior Levy
1. israel is loosing big time to the palestinians
BECAUSE cases like this- such a video COULD NEVER BE EXPLAINED by security excuses.
co. ,   Israel   (02.28.12)
2. Dehumanization
When you propogate dehumanization tactics this is the result. Might as well be Alabama in 1962.
(02.28.12)
3. One "small" difference:this video of people getting skunked
is sure to make rounds world-wide. Any video of Jewish children being murdered by the Arabs is put into archives of History. Tough when you fight with one hand tied behind your back.... Now let's hear the moans of the PC-crowd!

4. The line was clearly drawn and they...
were told, yet THEY chose to allow themselves to be skunked. They have to be responsible for their own actions. Some people will only see 'evil' Israel abusing the 'palestinian', but for me, when put into context, only shows the 'Palestinian' set theirselves up for this scenrio so they can act like victims to the blind sheep of the world. Just another case of Paliwood.

5. Remember
Remember that in the past, Palestinians under treatment for cancer in Israeli hospitals were sent to blow up those same hospitals where they were under treatment, but thanks God and Israeli soldiers, without success. It is tragic, but the Arab Islamic terrorism is the origin of Palestinian misery, unfortunately.

6. to #1, for starters
security is not "just an excuse".

7. Used to disperse crowds during violent protests
"A non-fatal weapon used by security forces to disperse crowds during violent protests." So where was the violent protest? The truth is that it is a non-fatal weapon used by security forces to disperse Palestinians anytime, anywhere, for any reason. Just another apartheid tool. It has never been, and will never be, used on rioting haredim or settlers.

8. sick of Btselem
I´m sick of them! I mean what did they choose? LIVE ammo? this is a NON LETHAL WEAPON! for god´s sake! ask the syrians how they treat their fellow arabs... pathethic! LONG LIVE ISRAEL
Tom ,   Bsas,Argentina   (02.28.12)
9. Video
If this was a funeral of an everyday person and the mourners were planning to only mourn their deceased, then why was B'Tselem there with a video camera filming the whole thing. How many funerals do they actually film. I never saw them filming any Jewish funeral!
Ellen ,   Israel/USA   (02.28.12)
10. @1 which part of"during violent demonstration"is too hard??
PETER SM ,   AUSTRALIA   (02.28.12)
11. I Love It When Ynet Gives Me The Ammo I Need
I will link this story to many of the sites I visit. Jewish people all over the world need look no further than stories like this to understand why people are turning on them. When you back Israel you back this sort of barbaric behaviour. That makes you part of the problem.

12. #2 - isn't it dehumanizing to use a funeral to riot?
How many Arab funerals have turned into major riots, attacks on other Arabs, or rock throwing to cause injury? If a funeral is a such a solemn event, perhaps the Arabs should act the part, no? Read the article - before the funeral, "Palestinians" were rioting and clashing with forces when they closed the road. Regardless of the funeral, the road was closed and that's it. There are too many incidents of "Palestinians" using funerals, medical claims, ambulances, etc. as cover for their violent attacks. Had this happened in 1998 before "Palestinians" cynically used women and children as human shields, hid behind funerals and medical personnel, the IDF would have allowed the funeral without hesitation because it would have been no threat. This is the world we live in today.
William ,   Israel   (02.28.12)
13. #7 - not Apartheid because they're not Israeli citizens
so the use of the term in intellectually dishonest. Could have guessed it coming from you, John. Second, the riots began BEFORE the video piece and was cited in the article. Are you saying that it didn't happen because no one edits video? In the future, it would behoove you to actually go to the West Bank and be part of this riot so you can honestly say "ah, now I see the riot" - but don't call us when you get into trouble.
William ,   Israel   (02.28.12)
14. #11 - but sadly you refuse to link to stories
where the "palestinians" stage fake funerals, or use funerals and medical conditions as cover for violent attacks. Surely, you linked to the unapologetic "Palestinians" who slaughtered the Fogel family in their sleep, and the entire village and "Palestinian" President (Abbas) who covered it up.
William ,   Israel   (02.28.12)
15. ashes of the wake
we´ve killed a lot of innocent civilians to us every civilian was a terrorist they said they are now in civilian clothes that makes everybody free game but if they came in our perimeter we lit them up and when we would pull the body out and when we would search the car we would find nothing this took place time and time again no harm,no foul,that´s ok don´t worry about it because this is a new type of war this is an eradication i honestly feel we´re commiting genocide over here i don´t believe in killing civilians and i´m not going to kill civilians

16. Muslim Cemetery, break the markers
just as they had done to the Jewish Graves on the Mount Of Olives
BEN JABO ,   ISRAEL   (02.28.12)
17. #7 John - An easy question
When was the last time that you heard of saw a group of Palestina's that assembled for a Rally didn't end up a riot ? The go to pray at Al Aqsa & Friday's which usually winds up of th em throwing rocks at Israeli's
BEN JABO ,   ISRAEL   (02.28.12)
18. Tom please read again there violent disturbances going on
Jews have lived in Hebron for many centuries Arabs held a pogrom there almost a century ago It's not the black & white situation that is made out by the loud Pro Palestine lobby and their fellow travellers.
PETER SM ,   AUSTRALIA   (02.28.12)
19. #11 World Whatever
How many religions can you name that assemble for prayers, as Arabs do on Friday, then go around throwing rocks at people of other relgions? Name just one !! You only visit sites that cater your particular perversions
BEN JABO ,   ISRAEL   (02.28.12)
20. #9 excellent point.
And Hebron is known for its "peaceful" residents and Betzelem is known for its "honest" accounting of goings on.
Golan ,   modiin   (02.28.12)
21. #18 PETER, please read again, tom is with us ; )

22. BEN JABO
I HAVE SEEN WITH MY OWN EYES IN 1967 WHAT THE ARABS DID ON MOUNT SCOPUS AND THE CEMETARY ON THE MOUNT OF OLIVES, MY FAMILY PREFERRED TO BURY MY FATHER ON HAR HA MENOHORT, WERE WE NEW HIS GRAVE WOULD BE SAFE. MOISE TAWIL MAELIACH HA COHEN, MAY GOD BE WITH HIM AND ALL WITH EVERYBODY WHO IS BURIED THERE AND THAT THEY ARE AT PEACE. AMEN AMEN LONG LIVE JERUSALEM TAMEED.THE CITY OF KING DAVID. AMEN
DANNY TAWIL ,   ENGLAND   (02.28.12)
23. Nasty Provocatiom
The OFF the planet action of the OFF the red line Israeli armed gang masquerade as defenders of the Jewish people but are in effect agents provocateurs against the humanitarian aspects of Judaism causing a hatred that is imoral and counterproductive primitive tribalism.
zivron   (02.28.12)
24. Just imagine the situation
Palestinians are divided into good and bad people, like any people BUT the good people have to GET RID of the bad people, so as not to be confused with them. So if you are sharing the neighbourhood with terrorists, do not expect the poor soldiers to differentiate between nice palestinians and terrorists because that will be the difference of life or death. Summary: if you mingle with bad people, and share the same place to live, you will pay for them even if you are innocent.
Chaim Lev ,   Rishon LeZion   (02.29.12)
25. Oh man! That clip was just too funny.
That could not possibly have been a corpse. Surely, the Arabs have more respect for their dead than to make a mockery of a funeral - complete with a cameraman to film the comedy show. There were the "mourners", attempting to barge through the barrier of riot police. I am surprised the corpse did not get up and run away from the skunking. This is just too hilarious. From the beginning, they could have waited for the situation to subside...just as they ended up doing just that. At least they would have shown some respect for their dead.
Harry Wright ,   UK   (02.29.12)
26. For #19 Jaberwocky
Jewish Israeli settlers for one. Or how abour Jerusalem ultra-orthodox. Spraying mourners with 'skunk' seems to be a new wrinkle on Israeli brutality.

27. GOOD JOB IDF
ZIMBI ,   NJUSA   (02.29.12)
28. To: No. 11
Don't forget to include an explanation as to how this terrorist got dead to begin with. That will be enlightening, too. But I don't suppose you consider terrorism to be barbaric, do you? Do you know what that makes you? A barbarian. Right up there with the murderers of the Fogel family and suicide bombers. You must be SO proud.

29. Mikesailor # 26
It's hardly brutality Mike. Of course I must admit, it's nothing to sniff at.
