Israeli Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked announced on Sunday that bodies of Palestinians killed by Israeli occupation forces would not be returned to their families for burial, Quds Press reported.

“It must be clear that the bodies of terrorists will not be returned,” Shaked told journalists yesterday, in reference to Palestinians killed at the hands of Israeli occupation forces.

“There can be two tracks of going about it, as I said, either another discussion, which is the preferred route, or legislation.”

On Thursday, the Israel Supreme Court ruled that the state is not allowed to hold bodies of Palestinians to be used as “bargaining chips”.

Based on the ruling, the Israeli government was given a period of six months to appeal before it must release the bodies of slain Palestinians unconditionally.

Israeli occupation forces have withheld the bodies of hundreds of Palestinians, including ten killed during the uprising which started in October 2015. It is believed that they will be used in future negotiations surrounding the release of Israeli soldiers who have been captured as prisoners of war in the besieged Gaza Strip.

The bodies of the Palestinians are held in the cemetery of numbers which is a closed military area which civilians and NGOs are unable to access.

    Instead of calling this wicked woman a Justice Minister, you would be more accurate, by calling her Wicked Minister

      This whole manmade situation is sickening. Religion … nobody needs it at this point in mankind’s evolution

      • scorpion

        The whole situation should be based on Human Rights, which Israelis don’t seem to know the meaning of!!

    • Muhammed Ibraheem

      Brother I think the correct term would more along the lines of Evil Minister.

  • Edwin Subijano

    This minister is an evil and heartless witch !!!

  • Susan Beatrice Karimchise

    The palestinians use the bodies as propaganda tools.

    • Jesse Pollock

      …..Israel keeping them is causing that. Looking at it another way is bias propaganda itself.

    • Jesse Pollock

      Keeping the bodies does not change the idea of their martyrdom.

      • Susan Beatrice Karimchise

        A picture is worth a thousand words.

          say the spouter of Hasbara crap!

          • Susan Beatrice Karimchise

            Hasbara = truth and goodness.
            Hamas = lies and deceit

            Must really smell where your head is stuck. You are just another paid for LIAR!!

          • scorpion

            Bet you didn’t know that Hamas is an Israeli creation!!

            You checked your DNA recently? You may be one of the stolen Yemeni Real Jews!

          • Susan Beatrice Karimchise

            Hamas was created on its own.

          • scorpion

            Just shows how stupid and brainwashed you are!!

            Let us not forget that it was Israel, which in fact created Hamas. According to Zeev Sternell, historian at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, “Israel thought that it was a smart ploy to push the Islamists against the Palestinian Liberation Organisation (PLO)”.

        Leaves plenty of room for organ harvesting though!

      Evil israhell occupiers are using dead Palestinians as propaganda tools. Yes Susan Beatrice Kari.

        Why does Egypt keep its border with Gaza closed ?

        • scorpion

          What does that have to do with the question at hand, Hasbara troll alert, run along and don’t collect your pay for this feeble attempt at WHATABOUTERY!!

          • Susan Beatrice Karimchise

            Egypt doesnt trust Hamas. Nobody does. Thats why they keep their Gaza border closed.

          • scorpion

            Who gives a flying crap!!! That is not what we are discussing here is it, or are you too stupid to understand that. I think most reasonable people will know the answer to that TROLL!

          • Susan Beatrice Karimchise

            I know you are nobody’s fool, but maybe someone will adopt you.
            Shalom.

            You’ll be permanently an orphan then, no one loves a liar!

            Keep avoiding the topic at hand like a good little Hasbara Troll!

          • Susan Beatrice Karimchise

            ” no one loves a liar!”

            At least I had parents, and they would support me as well. They didn’t like Nazis.

          • scorpion

          • scorpion

            “Do your parents know that you are online?’

            You seem somewhat confused, but that’s not surprising for a brain dead old HASBARA shrew!

      The Israelis use anyone’s body to harvest organs, and also run a nice little black market in stolen organs too!

    “It must be clear that the bodies of terrorists will not be returned,” Shaked told journalists yesterday, in reference to Palestinians killed at the hands of Israeli occupation forces. —-
    Occupation – oc·cu·pa·tion [ˌäkyəˈpāSH(ə)n] NOUN
    The action, state, or period of occupying or being occupied by military force:
    “the Roman occupation of Britain” · “the Nazi occupation”

    Now tell us once more. Who are the terrorists ? Why do these people not have the
    right to defend themselves from a military occupation ? Why does Israel feel justified in
    not returning those that have died defending their land and homes ?

    • scorpion

      They do have the right to defend themselves, only paid for mouthpieces deny that!

      UN res 3103 gives the Palestinians the right to over throw their occupiers by whatever means necessary!

  • kirby1

    Dip the dirt bag terrorist in laird, light them up and throw them over the fence.

  • Olajumoke Kolawole

    Though this is biased junk journalism in it’s entirety! For any right thinking man to say that Israel forces on their own ancestral Homeland heritage is an occupational forces is nothing but pure intellectual dishonesty and an attemp to distort well known ages history to suit the demand of Globally confirm Terroristics savages race that want to eat and dwell in a nation that they have no any iota of historic ancestral and Theological link with. This is nothing but madness stupid asinine egregious crime of a monumental proportion!

      Explain this then! or are you busy awaiting rapture?

      Did the Exodus Really Happen?
      We have found Sinai evidence of other people who predated the Israelites, and while it is improbable that 600,000 men crossed the desert 2,500 years ago without leaving a shard of pottery or a Hebrew carving, it is not impossible. (Together with women and children, that makes a couple of million, who could actually fill the distance between Egypt and Israel by standing in line.) One rabbi quoted to me the mystical tradition that one tribe was deputized to clean up every trace, which at least shows the Jewish tradition’s unease with Sinai’s preternaturally clean slate.

      However, the archaeological conclusions are not based primarily on the absence of Sinai evidence. Rather, they are based upon the study of settlement patterns in Israel itself. Surveys of ancient settlements–pottery remains and so forth–make it clear that there simply was no great influx of people around the time of the Exodus (given variously as between 1500-1200 BCE). Therefore, not the wandering, but the arrival alerts us to the fact that the biblical Exodus is not a literal depiction. In Israel at that time, there was no sudden change in the kind or the volume of pottery being made. (If people suddenly arrived after hundreds of years in Egypt, their cups and dishes would look very different from native Canaanites’.) There was no population explosion. Most archeologists conclude that the Israelites lived largely in Canaan over generations, instead of leaving and then immigrating back to Canaan.

      The Outline of History:. H. G. Wells,
      “It is highly probable that the bulk of the Jew’s ancestors ‘never’ lived in Palestine ‘at all,’ which witnesses the power of historical assertion over fact.”

      Senior Israeli archaeologist casts doubt on Jewish heritage of Jerusalem
      Professor Finkelstein, who is known as “the father of biblical archaeology”, told the Jerusalem Post that Jewish archaeologists have found no historical or archaeological evidence to back the biblical narrative on the Exodus, the Jews’ wandering in Sinai or Joshua’s conquest of Canaan. On the alleged Temple of Solomon, Finkelstein said that there is no archaeological evidence to prove it really existed.

    Everything these people do does not just happen. It is all planned.
    Could the Israeli government be using illegally, body parts from their victims (kidneys, hearts, eyes, etc..)?
    The best way to cover their crimes is to not return the bodies to their families.

    • scorpion

      They have done it before!! Israel has a nice little line in black market body parts!!
