Palestinian teen [possibly] burned alive

Tariq Khdeir (cousin), 15, a high school sophomore in Tampa, was visiting his Palestinian relatives in Jerusalem when he was attacked and detained, relatives told CNN. The family claims that Khdeir is seen in separate videos being held down and pummeled by men in the uniform of Israeli security forces.

Re: Palestinian teen burned alive

I heard he was held down and beaten to death by pink elephants.

Horrific. Who deserves to die in that way ? The pink elephants of the world show their true face.

Palestinian teen burned alive



1.Videos are taken from the channel, Palestine Today, funded by the Jihad, a militant group that has carried out suicide bombings and other attacks aimed at civilians ....


2. The face of the person cannot be seen in either video, and the circumstances leading up to the beating are not shown.
Israel's justice ministry said an investigation has d been opened.

Re: Palestinian teen burned alive

If you read the link, you'll see that a Palestinian teenager was kidnapped and murdered, and an autopsy suggests that he was burned alive. Also that "Mark Regev, spokesman for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, said his country is aggressively investigating the killing. "We'll get to the bottom of it and catch those responsible," he told CNN on Saturday"

You'll also see the that a cousin of the murdered teenager was apparently beaten up by Israeli forces.

No-one is claiming (except Caramelized, which in this context is rather an unfortunate handle) that the murdered teenager was burned alive by Israeli forces.

You are conflating the two incidents.

Re: Palestinian teen burned alive

one says its a different incident and one says the video were taken by jahadi funded palestine today and one is trying to be a clown

where are your ethics people, a teen was killed brutally, what if he was your own son, will you post with such a attitude ?

where is humanity, just because he was Palestinian not Isreali or bla bla, you can not even sympathize

shame on you all

you tart....you're weirdly accusing the IDF of burning a teenager alive. You're making stuff up on the spot which is horrifically disrespectful to this poor kid who will inevitably be used to further the petty political ambitions of people on both sides. I join your call for a little respect for this child.

There is nothing funny in my reply, I can't believe you are making light of this, you should be ashamed of yourself that is truly the lowest of the low.

I say it was the elephants. You say it was Israeli security forces. Tell you what, let's go down the real evidence road instead. I haven't got any unfortunately. Do you have any EVIDENCE to show it was Israeli security forces that killed this poor lad ?

I'm not saying it's two incidents, the article YOU link to says so. I've READ the link you posted. YOU clearly haven't. Read it again and you'll see that the idea that this is one incident (that a youth was burned to death by Israeli forces) is entirely a figment of your being unable to read properly.

It's got nothing to do with whether I think burning Palestinians to death or beating them up is good behaviour or not. It's a matter of getting your facts rights.

Or maybe you think it is ethical and something to be proud of to spread untruths?

Re: Palestinian teen burned alive

As the OP's response to @Mikers was not to that in the edited #2, shouldn't it and #8 be restored as well for the sake of balance?

3. Israel continues its massacre of carpet bombing innocent civilian populations and killing on average, 1 palestinian child every 3 days since 2000. This latest incident, rather than being a matter of a civil issue dealt by police murder enquiry, is used to further justify military action.

1. Source please.
2. You realise that Palestinians killed three Israeli children just recently? Is this also used to further justify military action or something?

Re: Palestinian teen burned alive

Granted the OP jumped to conclusions about the IDF without the facts being as of yet revealed.

BUT, given the last 30+ years of human rights abuses, you really think there is nothing sinister going on in the case of the 3 unfortunate Jewish boys?

the fact is we dont know the truth. BUT, I would not trust the mainstream media, nor what the Isreali press say about it either.

Fair point. When I first started the edit of the OP, I hadn't seen the significant edit to the reply (it was still referring to pink elephants).

Both posts have now been restored.

You really need a source for this? https://www.middleeastmonitor.com/ne...-past-13-years

Thats the point: the media have done a great job of tainting the reality of whats going on over there. All you see are images of youths throwing rocks at the heavily armoured IDF. The reality is that its the worlds biggest open air prison. There is no freedom of movement, no prospects, the borders are controlled [shut] by Isreal, Palestinian land and property is increasingly being illegally snatched, people are harassed on a daily basis, gas water and energy is tightly resitricted, children as yound as 11 yrs old are being arrested and taken away,,,not to mention the blatant murders at the hands of IDF soldiers. you dont need to search for long to find very damning evidence online. All this, because the Western media are not reporting the facts - on the contrary, the Isreali machine doing a very good job job of playing the victim. Of course, both sides are committing wrongs - buts lets be honest, you think this is a fair fight?

I am from the UK and witnessed the riots of 2011 which was sparked by an unfortunate incident in London between the police and a youth. I can only imagine what would happen if someone invaded the UK and did what the Palestinians have been unduring for the last 30 odd years.
