PLO official accuses Israeli PM of supporting terror: “Israel officially supports the war crimes against the Palestinians, gives murderers immunity and support”

Headline: “Karake: The fact that Netanyahu welcomed the murderer of the two Jordanians and defended the execution of Al-Sharif encourages the murder of Palestinians and Arabs”

“Director of [PLO] Commission of Prisoners’ Affairs Issa Karake said that the fact that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met and embraced Ziv, the murderer of the two Jordanian Martyrs (Shahids) who were murdered at the Israeli embassy in Amman (i.e., an Israeli security guard who was stabbed by a terrorist and shot him, also hitting a bystander by accident – see note below), and stood up for the murderer of Martyr Abd Al-Fattah Al-Sharif (i.e., terrorist, stabbed 1 with an accomplice), Elor Azaria (see note below –Ed.)… is part of the support system for organized crime and incessant Israeli state terror against the Palestinian and Arab people.
Karake said that Israel officially supports the war crimes against the Palestinians, gives murderers immunity and support, and does not open fair criminal investigations against them, but rather acts to glorify them and gives them light sentences or pardons them…
Karake said that the extremist Jewish terror organizations and the gangs of settlers receive funding, support, licensing, and protection from the government of Israel.
He explained that even as immunity is given to the Israeli murderers, the government of Israel… incites against the PA due to the social aid to the families of the Martyrs and prisoners.
(i.e., the salaries the PA pays to terrorists in prison –Ed.)”

Ziv Moyal, an Israeli security guard at the Israeli embassy in Amman, Jordan, shot and killed a Jordanian terrorist who stabbed him with a screwdriver outside the embassy on July 23, 2017. Moyal accidentally shot and killed a bystander in the process, and took refuge in the embassy. Amid Jordanian threats to sentence him to death, the following day Israel secured his return and the return of the entire embassy staff, opened an investigation into the incident, and agreed to pay compensation to the family of the bystander. The move came the same night that Israel decided to remove the metal detectors and security cameras it had placed at the Temple Mount entrances following a terror attack there on July 14, 2017, in which three Israeli Arab terrorists murdered 2 Israeli border police officers.

Elor Azaria - a 20-year-old sgt. and combat medic in the Israeli army who shot 21-year-old Palestinian terrorist Abd Al-Fattah Al-Sharif in the head as he lay wounded on the ground and killed him in Hebron on March 24, 2016, shortly after Al-Sharif, together with 21-year-old terrorist Ramzi Aziz Al-Qasrawi, had stabbed and wounded an Israeli soldier. Al-Qasrawi was shot and killed during the attack. Azaria has stated that he shot Al-Sharif because he saw him moving and thought he might have a bomb on him and be trying to detonate it - other sources, including a Magen David Adom investigative committee and a military criminal investigator, have confirmed that this possibility had not been ruled out. The shooting and killing was filmed by a Palestinian activist of the NGO B’Tselem. Azaria was condemned by many Israeli politicians and officials following the incident, particularly then Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon, and Azaria was put on trial on charges of manslaughter. Azaria was convicted of manslaughter in January 2017 and sentenced to 18 months in prison. Azaria appealed the conviction, but his appeal was rejected by a military court of appeals on July 30, 2017.
