On November 1, 2018, a large group of Orthodox Jews took to the streets of Bnei Brak suburb of Tel Aviv, to protest the arrest of a religious youth who refused to enlist in the Israeli army.
Israeli police responded to the protest with brutality and violence. Mounted police used their horses to trample protesters, while cops on foot stomped and punched them. 13 protesters were reported to have been arrested.
This is not the first time we’ve seen the video of Israeli police brutalizing protesters opposing mandatory conscription.
Even though these Orthodox Jews oppose conscription to the Israeli Army, and with it seemingly refuse to participate in the mass murder of the innocent, they are still part of the illegal occupation of the land that doesn’t belong to them, so they’re not a whole lot better than those who do conscript.
While we’re on the topic of the Jew, I can’t not mention the recently leaked “Israel Lobby” documentary and the importance that everybody finds the time to watch it.
But speaking of which, tell me guys what you think of the fact that despite utterly explosive revelations the documentary presents, which should be blowing up with front page coverage on news sites that like to present themselves as “alternative media“, there appears to be nothing on Antiwar, Counterpunch, Truthdig, the Intercept, Infowars, Breitbart, Rebel Media, Washington’s Blog, Off-Guardian, etc. Is it me, or may the leak have had a side effect of exposing who truly is behind some “alt” sites?
The video of police brutality in Tel Aviv’s Bnei Brak is below. By the way, these are the same police who train the cops from the USA and Canada to “shoot first, ask questions later“, and resort to arbitrary brutality in everyday encounters with citizens:
