IMRA: Killer of terrorist was beaten senseless by cops for filming 2005 protest

Dr. Aaron Lerner Date: 3 July, 2008

Makor Rishon correspondent Hodaya Karish-Hazony, reports today that "Mem",the soldier who killed the terrorist yesterday in Jerusalem, had been severely beaten by police during an anti-disengagement protest that took place May 2005.

"Mem", who at the time was 17, was beaten unconscious by police as he photographed - from the sidewalk - a protest in Ramat Gan during which the road was blocked.

Karish-Hazony suggests that police decided to beat him unconscious even though he was standing on the sidewalk and not involved in blocking the road in an attempt to stop him from documenting the event.

"Mem" was detained and released several days later and his file was closed for "lack of evidence" - a move that left a police record that made it necessary for him to have to fight the IDF in order to be drafted into an elite unit.

Yediot Ahronot reports that it took "Mem" two years of arguing with the IDF before he was ultimately drafted into an elite unit.

(nice to see they did not break his spirit....)

We must re-post this. It makes us proud---as he does what the government should be doing to protect Israel and the Jewish People)


"First of all, thanks to G-d, and secondly to the education and upbringing I received, beginning in the Morashah Talmud Torah in Jerusalem, and then the Dimona Yeshiva High School, and then the Yitzhar and Kiryat Arba Hesder yeshivot, and finally to my army training, for helping me act in the way every soldier and citizen should. I also wish to thank my brother-in-law David Shapira for serving as a personal example [Shapira was one of the two who killed the terrorist in Merkaz HaRav earlier this year - ed.]
