EYEWITNESS REPORT

ISRAELI ARMY and SETTLERS SHOOT to KILL UNARMED PALESTINIAN CIVILIANS

March 6, 2001

The Israeli army and settlers are increasingly and purposefully

targeting

Palestinian civilian areas located in the vicinity of illegal Israeli

settlements, causing numerous deaths and injuries.  This past week, a

nine-year old boy was shot and killed while in his bedroom, a woman was

shot

and killed while shopping with her family, and a fifty-four year old man

was

killed by a rocket which was shot into his home.

 

On March 2, 2001, nine-year old Obei Mohammed Darraj was killed as he

was

helping his father paint a window frame at home. The Palestine Monitor

team

visited the boy’s family on March 4, 2001. Obei’s father confirmed that

there had been no exchange of fire between Palestinians and the Israeli

army

and settlers that day. The bullet that entered the little boy’s chest

and

exited from his back, was fired from the illegal settlement of Psagot.

Another bullet also entered the family’s living room.   Upon seeing his

son

collapse, Obei’s father called an ambulance but couldn’t bear the pain

of

seeing his son bleeding to death while he waited, so he decided to carry

him

to the hospital himself. At 3:30 the boy was declared dead.

 

On March 3, 2001 at around 7:30 pm, Aida Daoud Moussa Fatiha was shot

dead

next to the Quakers’ Boys’ Friends school by a 50-caliber, anti-tank

bullet

fired from the illegal Israeli settlement of Psagot. Aida Fatiha was

walking

in the street with her husband and children, shopping in preparation for

the

Eid feast when she was killed. While the settlement is relatively far

from

the mid-town area where Aida Fatiha was shot dead, the type of guns and

ammunition used by the Israeli army against Palestinian civilians have

an

extremely long range.

 

On March 4, 2001, the Palestine Monitor team visited the house of

54-year

old Mohammed Badarin of Ramallah who was killed by an Israeli rocket on

February 27, 2001 as he was sitting in his living room. Mohammed Baradin

 

leaves behind a family of ten children.  The day the shelling happened,

there were some clashes between Palestinian youth and the Israeli army

at

the City Inn Hotel and Beit Eil settlement intersection. According to

his

brother, unusually heavy rounds of bullets were fired into Palestinian

residential areas facing the nearby Israeli settlement of Beit Eil. The

shooting was coming from three different directions and civilians were

caught in the crossfire for an hour and a half, starting at 6 pm.

 

At 8:30 pm that same evening, Israeli tanks starting firing rockets at

the

house of Mohammed Badarin, although the clashes had stopped an hour

before.

An Israeli rocket hit Mohammed Badarin as he was sitting in his living

room.

The rest of the family was dispersed in different rooms, some of the men

 

were attempting to remove cooking gas canisters from the kitchen for

fear

that they would be hit by subsequent shelling. According to testimonies

by

his family, Mohammed Badarin’s body was torn into several pieces. The

Palestine Monitor team noticed numerous pools of blood splattered over

the

walls and ceiling of the living room. Shortly afterwards, the second

floor

of the Badarin family’s house was hit by a second rocket, although

clashes

had long stopped by that time.

 

The Badarins’ home is severely damaged and uninhabitable.  The façade of

the

home is riddled with hundreds of bullet holes and there are two-meter

wide

holes on each of the floors of the house.  Bullets and rockets entered

the

home, causing severe damage to its contents.  The Badarin family now has

to

sleep on makeshift beds on the floor, scattered in the house’s

corridors.

There are no longer any rooms that can be utilized, except for the

kitchen

which has windows pierced by several bullet holes.

 

On this same night of shelling, the nearby Ministry of Local Councils

was

also hit by several hundred bullets and by a rocket, which completely

destroyed the top floor.

It is utter nonsense to take what happened in this country a hundred and seventy

years ago as license for Israeli Jews to kill Palestinians in real time.  You talk

about hypocrisy.  This isn’t hypocrisy, it is chutzpah, a word necessary to

describe this.

Mr. McVay is spamming the NG.  He repeats this defamation of the poster

time after time after time, and since he has it on a file, it takes him not time

at all

to put it forth.  He is to be castigated for doing it, and if it continues I will

take it up

with his ISP.

The post points out that Ronald Lauder is a right wing Zionist,

of the Kahanist stripe, and that he is also the owner of Estee Lauder

cosmetics.  Any person who supports Israel is not a good citizen of this

country, and his business should be boycotted.

The STudents and student teachers at BErkeley are trying

to get the university to disinvest from companies doing business with

Israel.  Since Israel is a horrible oppressive regime, which is carrying

out a long continued campaign of ethnic cleansing in Palestine,

and systematically discriminating against its non Jewish citizens,

this is a perfectly appropriate action on their part and is not

antisemitic in the least.  American Jews have been at the forefront of

civil rights efforts for seventy years at least, and should applaud their

efforts.  ONly Zionsimps like Mr. Goldstein call them antisemitic.

Of course, you will note that there is no substantiation of the charge.

There can’t be.

What, Martin, you don’t think that Mrs. Black gets a forum

because she is the wife of the publisher?  Get real.  And you don’t think

that her articles are bigoted pieces of trash?  Shall I get one for you and

put it up?

I urge people to go to this site and decide for themselves whether

they think there is anything antisemitic there.

There is certainly nothing of the sort in the post reproduced.

Ali Abunimah is a distinguished Arab American writer who lives near Chicago.

He editorialized on news reports of the shelling of the school.  If Israel

chooses to shell a school, they should have to deal with the news.

I think that Israel doesn’t care, because they have enough media on their side

they

don’t have to worry about bad publicity.

It is clear that this was management of the news in that

reporters who might ask “unsafe” questions were prevented

>from doing so.  How reporting the fact of the suppression

of questions becomes antisemitic is not a question one may

expect Mr. Goldstein to answer.  He is not in business here to

be coherent.

Here I have to laugh.  Ha’aretz is one of the biggest papers in Israel

and is, if I am any judge, Zionist.  How an article from Ha’aretz

qualifies as antisemitic, GOK.
