Settler’s ‘sweet’ celebration following death of Palestinian man

An Israeli settler celebrated the killing of a Palestinian by another settler today by handing out chocolates to passing Israeli vehicles.

An Israeli settler celebrated the killing of a Palestinian by another settler today by handing out chocolates to passing Israeli vehicles.

Twenty-three-year-old Palestinian Moutaz Hussein Hilal Bani Shamsa was shot dead by an Israeli settler earlier today near the Huwwara village in the occupied West Bank district of Nablus. Palestinian journalist Majdi Eshtayya was injured when the settler got out of his car and began shooting indiscriminately at a crowd of Palestinians during clashes that erupted with Israeli forces following a march held in solidarity with a mass Palestinian hunger strike currently on its 32nd day in Israeli prisons.

In the video, the Israeli settler, who also appears to be protected by Israeli forces, was distributing chocolates to settlers to celebrate the killing of the Palestinian. He can also be seen sarcastically offering the candy to Palestinians standing near the road, while verbally provoking them.

“You wanted to support Marwan Barghouthi,” the settler said, referring to the imprisoned Fatah leader who is leading some 1,600 Palestinians on the hunger strike.

And we killed a Palestinian vandal today. I am distributing candy to celebrate the killing. I want to congratulate the Israeli people for the vandal’s death.

    We expect that of Palestinian behavior, but it appears to be very unusual and just as ignorant when an Israeli does it.

            And I only mentioned Murdoch a few times when it was relevant.

          • Jane Paxman

            It is relevant exactly because the comment was regarding jews controlling the media.

          Who runs Hollywood? C’mon

          December 19, 2008|JOEL STEIN

          I have never been so upset by a poll in my life. Only 22% of Americans now believe “the movie and television industries are pretty much run by Jews,” down from nearly 50% in 1964. The Anti-Defamation League, which released the poll results last month, sees in these numbers a victory against stereotyping. Actually, it just shows how dumb America has gotten. Jews totally run Hollywood.

          How deeply Jewish is Hollywood? When the studio chiefs took out a full-page ad in the Los Angeles Times a few weeks ago to demand that the Screen Actors Guild settle its contract, the open letter was signed by:

          ⦁ News Corp. President Peter Chernin (Jewish),
          ⦁ Paramount Pictures Chairman Brad Grey (Jewish),
          ⦁ Walt Disney Co. Chief Executive Robert Iger (Jewish),
          ⦁ Sony Pictures Chairman Michael Lynton (surprise, Dutch Jew),
          ⦁ Warner Bros. Chairman Barry Meyer (Jewish),
          ⦁ CBS Corp. Chief Executive Leslie Moonves (so Jewish his great uncle was the first prime minister of Israel),
          ⦁ MGM Chairman Harry Sloan (Jewish)
          ⦁ NBC Universal Chief Executive Jeff Zucker (mega-Jewish).

          If either of the Weinstein brothers had signed, this group would have not only the power to shut down all film production but to form a minyan with enough Fiji water on hand to fill a mikvah.

          The person they were yelling at in that ad was SAG President Alan Rosenberg (take a guess). The scathing rebuttal to the ad was written by entertainment super-agent Ari Emanuel (Jew with Israeli parents) on the Huffington Post, which is owned by Arianna Huffington (not Jewish and has never worked in Hollywood.)

          The Jews are so dominant, I had to scour the trades to come up with six Gentiles in high positions at entertainment companies. When I called them to talk about their incredible advancement, five of them refused to talk to me, apparently out of fear of insulting Jews. The sixth, AMC President Charlie Collier, turned out to be Jewish.

          As a proud Jew, I want America to know about our accomplishment. Yes, we control Hollywood. Without us, you’d be flipping between “The 700 Club” and “Davey and Goliath” on TV all day.

          So I’ve taken it upon myself to re-convince America that Jews run Hollywood by launching a public relations campaign, because that’s what we do best. I’m weighing several slogans, including: “Hollywood: More Jewish than ever!”; “Hollywood: From the people who brought you the Bible”; and “Hollywood: If you enjoy TV and movies, then you probably like Jews after all.”

          I called ADL Chairman Abe Foxman, who was in Santiago, Chile, where, he told me to my dismay, he was not hunting Nazis. He dismissed my whole proposition, saying that the number of people who think Jews run Hollywood is still too high. The ADL poll, he pointed out, showed that 59% of Americans think Hollywood execs “do not share the religious and moral values of most Americans,” and 43% think the entertainment industry is waging an organized campaign to “weaken the influence of religious values in this country.”

          That’s a sinister canard, Foxman said. “It means they think Jews meet at Canter’s Deli on Friday mornings to decide what’s best for the Jews.” Foxman’s argument made me rethink: I have to eat at Canter’s more often.

          That’s a very dangerous phrase, ‘Jews control Hollywood.’ What is true is that there are a lot of Jews in Hollywood, he said. Instead of “control,” Foxman would prefer people say that many executives in the industry “happen to be Jewish,” as in “all eight major film studios are run by men who happen to be Jewish.”

          But Foxman said he is proud of the accomplishments of American Jews. “I think Jews are disproportionately represented in the creative industry. They’re disproportionate as lawyers and probably medicine here as well,” he said. He argues that this does not mean that Jews make pro-Jewish movies any more than they do pro-Jewish surgery. Though other countries, I’ve noticed, aren’t so big on circumcision.

          I appreciate Foxman’s concerns. And maybe my life spent in a New Jersey-New York/Bay Area-L.A. pro-Semitic cocoon has left me naive. But I don’t care if Americans think we’re running the news media, Hollywood, Wall Street or the government. I just care that we get to keep running them.



          • peepsqueek

            What is your point, as Jews started the film industry, and all the corporations that you have mentioned have investors from all over the world. Saudi Prince Al-Waleed Bin Talal, a longtime ally of Rupert Murdoch and 21st Century Fox’s no. 2 shareholder, plans to invest around $36 million in Arab films through his Rotana Media Group. The announcement comes following a shake-up in the Arab film and TV biz with the entry of Netflix and Qatar’s pay TV platform beIN Media into the region.

          • peepsqueek

            Wikipedia with sources: The scalp ringworm, also known as tinea capitis, mycosis, thrichophytia, and favus, was one of the most common fungal diseases in children in the Jewish communities in Israel and abroad since the 19th century. This X-ray treatment for ringworm has been used around the world as early as 1897.[3] An estimated 200,000 children worldwide received X-ray treatment for tinea capitis in accordance with the standard Adamson-Kienbock procedure between 1910 and 1959, until griseofulvin, the first effective antifungal agent for ringworm, was introduced.[4]

            At the beginning of the 20th century, Hadassah Medical Center in Jerusalem treated ringworm disease among the religious Jewish community in Jerusalem using irradiation and the disease almost disappeared.[5]

            With mass immigration in the 1940s and 1950s, many new cases of ringworm surfaced, primarily among immigrant children from Asia and North Africa, due to crowded living conditions with deficient hygiene facilities. At this time, ringworm was still treated with irradiation, under the supervision of Hadassah Medical Center (Prof. Dostrovsky and Prof. Drukman).

          • Mike Abramov

            My friend. Jane Paxman is a very strange person. I can only describe her as a latter-day Nazi. She has been trying to taunt me with anti-Semitc remarks to no avail. I have recommended that she gets help.

          • peepsqueek

            I see this all the time. The far right and far left go too far. They have made up their minds on everything, regardless of facts or new information that would make a more objective person rethink their positions. I see it was religious people. Intelligent people when it comes to their religion, throw all logic and reasons out the window, when it comes to their ancient texts as being the verbatim words of God. You can present 500 pieces of evolutionary evidence, and they will still claim that God made the entire universe in six earth days. Lewis Black the comedian says- That’s when I take a fossil out of my pocket and throw it at their head.

            ‘That is because your media is owned by Jews so you only hear the side of the aggressor’ is the statement made by Sharleen. I thought the media was pwned aging Australians like Murdoch.

            When I read the Guardian, I am guaranteed to read negative things about Israel. Haaretz is Israel’s left-wing equivalent. It appears you are not aware of this?

          • Jane Paxman

            Yes – the media is majority owned by jews.

          • Magpie

            Being a racist like Sharleen who blames everything on “the Jews” is different from Haaretz’s and other’s justified condemnation of Israel’s colonial racist policies. I come from Australia so I know a bit about racist violent settler-colonial states!

          • Mike Abramov

            ‘Violent colonial settler states’. I would be a rich man for every time I read and heard this statement

            I accept you do not have a problem with Jews. Thank you. May I suggest you join Neturei Karta who are Jews against Israel.

            As for the condemnation the anti-Israel brigade use, may I ask what the solution to the Israel-Palestine is, as opposed to the incessant negativity of blaming the Jewish state.

          • Mike Abramov

            Jane – I am certainly not a troll. All I want is an intelligent dialogue to help find solutions to the ME situation. However, the expression anti-Semite is not that old. In this context it is largely used in reference to the Askenazi Jews of Europe, The word first appeared in print in 1860 in Austria.

            The Semitic race is correctly applied in your case where both Jews and Arabs are ‘of the same or similar tribe’.

          • Jane Paxman

            Like I said, troll, the Arabs are semites.
            (Troll – I have had the opportunity to read your prior comments, which number in the thousands)
            Laughable that a Sephardi supports israel.
            israel tried to cleanse the jews of you darkies.
            The Ringworm Program was acknowledged by the israeli govt – but no compensation was given – lololololo

            “semitic” refers to language group

            Harriet – I am aware of this. There are many words in Hebrew that are similar to Arabic.and vice-versa. As for rape, all conquering nations have done this to women. May i refer you to 1945 and the Russians raping German women….many of whom committed suicide afterwards.

  • Michael Abramov

    This is not acceptable. This Israeli settler is not representing my interests or the interests of the people of Israel. He is a murderer. I express my sadness and sympathy for his family.

    • Rachamim Slonim Dwek

      Michael Abramov: Before spitting on Jews do your homework. A Jew was driving on Samaritan’s main road en route to his home after food shopping. An ambulance cut him off and boxed him in and then got put screaming that he had trapped a Jew. The deceased kicked in the rear window on the hatchback and then began doing the same on the front passenger window as well until he was shot. People like you? Who believes anything anyone tells you so long as it jibes with your biased viewpoint? Pretty sad and that is putting it politely.

      Lastly, I agree, he doesnt represent you. You are one who consigns Anti Semitic Bloodlibel while offering condolences to a terrorists family. Shame on you.

      • Mike Abramov

        Shabbat Shalom Rachamim. I see you are a Sephardi like me.

        The tension between Jews and Arabs in Israel and Palestine is high. There is no justification for murder however. I am very clear and pragmatic in my defense of Israel, but I am also a humanitarian and when I read that ANYONE has been murdered like this, it is unjustifiable.

        • Helen4Yemen

          How do you know you are a Sephardi? There are no more “Sephardi” Jews
          since they married local and their DNA is not more Spanish-Portuguese. What
          is your evidence that you are Sephardi. Are you an Arab Jew?

          • Mike Abramov

            Helen – over the last few months, I have got to know you quite well.

            One of the observations I have made is that you are not very well read. It appears that you know NOTHING of the history of the Ashkenazim. You know NOTHING about the Sephardim yet, you have the cheek to talk like a university professor?

            The Sephardim (Safad is Hebrew for Spain), is a misnomer, It does NOT mean that all Jews who call themselves Sephardi are from Spain. I am Sephardii by custom. In other words the Sephardim are considered closely linked to the 10 Lost Tribes (first diaspora to Babylon). The Ashkenazim are those Jews who left the Roman Empire after 490 ACE and journeyed in to Europe and developed a variation of Jewish customs and prayer.

            Now go away and do your research properly young lady.

          • Helen4Yemen

            ” The Ashkenazim are those Jews who left the Roman Empire after 490 ACE and journeyed in to Europe and developed a variation of Jewish customs and prayer.”

            0.1% East Asian. ”
            Total European = 99.9%
            Total Middle East = 0.0%

            ” I am Sephardii by custom.”

            But Mileikownsy (“Natanyahu”) tried to deceive the world when he announced that his brother did a DNA test and discovered that he was Sephardic. But his problem is that none on the genetic firms like 23andme or ancestry dot com have a genetic group called ‘Sephardi” because there are no people on the planet who are genetically “Sephardic’? But the Lithuanian is a habitual liar and nobody is surprised that he made such an absurd claim.

          • Mike Abramov

            Helen – you are an idiot.

        • Rachamim Slonim Dwek

          Mike Abramov: You clearly never critically examined the issue, nor really even researched it. Had you, you would have known that the person you are calling a “murder victim” was an al Aqsa Martyr Brigade terrorist who attacked tge motorist only because he was a Jew. On my Facebook Page in my album with the title “Mu’ataz Bani Shamsah” you can see for yourself. You have committed Bloodlibel in accusing a fellow Jew of murder, let alone doing so without knowing the facts.

          If you actually support Israel I hope that this will be a wakeup call for you not to spit on your brothers again.

            If you are a Jew, what are your choices? They are only two:

            a) Expel ALL the people or else
            b) Expect the wrath of God to fall on your head.

    Jews built 5 concentration camps in occupied Palestine 1948. They continue to lie cheat and steal from the natives including provoking Syria. Jews want a greater Israeli area at any expense to the goyim

      Just for balance, the banner of Islam flies over 99.9% of the Middle East land mass, and the West Bank is the biblical birthplace of David, Solomon, and Jesus. All Jews were removed from Gaza 11 years ago, and within weeks, Hamas rockets began to rain down on Israel, which provokes the known response. Lesson learned! You are just pissssed that the banner of Islam does not fly over 100% of the Middle East land mass. 1.5 Million Palestinian Arabs live in Israel proper as citizens, on land that hypocritical activists say is ethnically cleansed, but Palestinians do not want Jews on their side of the border. Do you have a balanced scale?
