Israeli army commander: I will make all the youth of Al-Duheisha camp disabled

An Israeli army commander has repeatedly threatened to make “all youth in the [Al-Duheisha] camp disabled”, reports have said.

BADIL, the Resource Centre for Palestinian Residency and Refugee Rights, reported an Israeli army commander making repeated threats during and after raids on the camp, and during interrogations.

The commander is reportedly responsible for the Al-Duheisha area, and known to locals as “Captain Nidal”.

Local youth in Al-Duheisha told BADIL that Captain Nidal has made statements such as: “I will make all the youth of the camp disabled,” “I will have all of you walking with crutches and in wheelchairs,” “I will make half of you disabled, and let the other half push the wheelchairs,” and “I will make all of you stand in line at the ATM waiting for your disability subsidies and assistance.”

One of the injured youth told BADIL that Captain Nidal told him to tell his friends that “Nidal will make all of you disabled.”

According to BADIL, 30 Palestinians have been shot with live ammunition in the camp since the beginning of the year, the majority in their legs and knees.

They added that Al-Duheisha had been raided at least three times by Israeli forces between the end of July and mid-August, during which time 18 Palestinian youth between 14 and 27 years old were shot in their legs – eight of which shot directly in the knee and several more in both legs – causing both permanent and temporary disabilities.

An Israeli army spokesperson could not immediately be reached for comment on the reports of the threats made by the commander.

    This is par for the course from Israel. They continue to brutalise the Palestinian people, both mentally and physically, on a daily basis. Along comes “Capitan Nidal”, no doubt a psycopath, who takes delight in subjecting people to mental and physical abuse and wants to advertise his presence to satisfy his perverted ego. A fine example of a member of the Israeli military and certainly, not the exception.

    If there was an Academy Awards ceremony for terrorism, Israel would sweep every category—and every acceptance speech would have to thank the government of the United States, whose generous support has made Israel the most successful terrorist state in the world.
    How do you measure the success of terrorism? Is it by the numbers of civilians killed, maimed and terrorized or the level of disruption and fear brought to people’s daily lives? Israel scores very highly on both these counts.
    Israel has its own special way of recognizing the achievements of its great terrorists—by electing them its prime minister. There are no less than three Israeli prime ministers who have long terrorist histories.

    Israeli Prime Ministers who were Terrorists and War Criminals
    Why does Israel keep electing terrorists and proponents of racism, apartheid, ethnic cleansing and genocide to its highest offices?
    David Ben-Gurion — #1 — he commanded the ethnic cleansing of 750,000 Arabs during the destruction of hundreds of Palestinian villages in 1948
    Levi Eshkol — #2 — he presided over the ethnic cleansing of 250,000 Palestinians
    Menachem Begin — #3 — he was the preeminent terrorist in the Middle East … until Ben-Gurion and Eshkol surpassed him
    Ariel Sharon — #4 — a murderous war hawk, he was responsible for massacres at Qibya, Sabra and Shatila
    Benjamin Netanyahu — #5 — he was responsible for the deaths and mutilations of thousands of children during Operations Cast Lead, Pillar of Defense and Protective Edge
    Yitzhak Shamir — #6 — he had British and Swedish nobles murdered for seeking to have Arabs treated as equals of Jews
    Ehud Barak — #7 — a cross-dressing assassin, he participated in death squads that killed women, policemen and a poet known as “The Conscience”
    Golda Meir — #8 — she threatened to destroy the world with nukes during a BBC interview and more than once insisted that Palestinians “did not exist” as a people
    Shimon Peres — #9 — he aggressively pursued nuclear weapons and succeeded in delivering them
    Yitzhak Rabin — #10 — he signed an order for the children of Lydda to be ethnically cleansed “quickly, without attention to age”
    Yigal Allon — #11 — he served in Special Night Squads which tortured and killed “without compunction”
    Ehud Olmert — #12 — he presided over the 2006 invasion of Lebanon, which killed 1,300 people and displaced more than a million others
