Jerusalem: Israelische Polizei richtet 41-jährigen Mann hin

Montag, Juni 14th, 2010

In den letzten Wochen häufen sich wieder einmal die Toten und Verletzten in den Besetzten Gebieten und das nicht nur wegen des Blutbades auf der „Solidaritätsflotte“. In den vergangenen Tagen kam es immer wieder zu Zusammenstößen von Demonstranten und israelischer Polizei. Siedler töteten einen jungen Hirten, eine alte Frau wurde von Siedlern tot getrampelt, einer amerikanischen Demonstrantin wurde, weil sie eine türkische Fahne hielt, ein Auge ausgeschossen. Mehrere Menschen wurden in Gaza getötet (sowohl Militante, als auch einige Bauern auf den Feldern nahe der Grenze) und Siedler attackierten Häuser und stürmten eine Moschee.

Der jüngste Zwischenfall ereignete sich in Jerusalem. Haaretz zufolge gab die Polizei an, einen Autofahrer, der zwei Polizisten töten wollte, erschossen zu haben. So die israelische Seite.

Bei dem Toten handelte es sich um Ziad Al-Julani, 41 Jahre und Vater von 3 Kindern und von Beruf Händler. Er wurde an einem kurzfristig errichteten Checkpoint in Jerusalem erschossen. Die israelische Polizei behauptet, er habe vorsätzlich zwei Polizisten angefahren und sei dann fortgerannt. Nachdem er auf Anrufen nicht stehen geblieben wäre, sei er bei der Flucht erschossen worden.

A Palestinian driver was shot and killed in Jerusalem Friday after running over two Israeli border patrolmen, with an apparent intent to kill.

The man reportedly hit two the two policemen in East Jerusalem neighborhood of Wadi al-Joz, with reported light injuries sustained by both victims.

According to police officials, the driver drove on a short distance, and then proceeding to flee the scene on foot. Police officers called on the suspect to stop, and opened fire at him once it was clear he had ignored their instructions.

So die Aussage der Polizei. Oder wie Adam Horowitz sagt: „Open and shut case, right? Not so fast.“ Zeugen  sagen, dass Zihad nachdem er angeschossen wurde, von der Polizei mit einem Schuss aus nächster Nähe hingerichtet wurde.1 Oder lassen wir seine Familie sprechen:

My brother told his wife in the morning that he will go do his prayers at Al-Aqsa and after that he will visit his uncle and cousins before he comes back to take his American wife and three beautiful daughters to dinner. He did his Friday prayers and was on his way to visit his uncle in Wadi Al Jouz [in East Jerusalem]. He was surprised as he turned into a small street that there was a checkpoint and a confrontation between stone throwers and the Israeli special forces. His car was being hit with stones, and everybody thinks his car went out of control while he was avoiding the confrontation. No body knows if he hit anybody or not while his car went out of control, but all of a sudden one of the policeman shouted that he was trying to kill them and they started shooting at him in the car.

He was shot in the arm already when he got out of the car and he was trying to avoid more shots to himself so he started running towards my uncle’s house. He was shot in the back and leg and fell on the ground shouting asking for help from my cousins and others. People tried to come help him but they were beaten with bats and would not let anybody near him. My brother was still alive but flat on the floor and totally unarmed but one of the policeman came with rage and came close by and put the gun in my brothers head and shot him point blank in the face twice and another in the belly.

My cousin came at that time and realized it was my brother and he went running to him to try to save him since he was still breathing. The same policeman came and hit him in the head with his rifle and busted his head open. He then pointed the gun on his head wanting to shoot him too but his mom and other women intercepted and got beaten up with bats. My brother was still breathing and the ambulance was trying to get to him but the policemen just left him on the floor to die and would not allow anybody to help him. The policeman that killed my brother supposedly rejoiced killing an Arab and the others gave him a pat on the back and clapped for him. Finally the Red Crescent did not listen to the Special Forces and decided to risk it and go help my brother. My brother was on the ground for 15 minutes which could have saved his life if he got immediate medical attention. My brother died in the ambulance in my cousin’s arms.

Ja, business as usual. Wer macht sich schon Sorgen um die Sicherheit der Palästinenser?2
