Police lets minors drink…

26 Sep

Gotta love the police.

This happened in Haifa, Israel.

I just went on an emergency olives shopping spree, because I was all out of olives and in withdrawal. On my way back through a park, I came past 3 Arabic-speaking youth sitting on a bench and drinking whatever it was, and talking.
Suddenly I hear someone yelling at them to “Leave the place now!”
I turn around to see a cop shining a flashlight at them from farther up the hillside park, and repeating his order for them to leave and pick up after themselves.
This seems wrong, so I call over, “Officer?”
He flashes his light right in my face, and I’m like, “Yup, me over here. Question. Since when is it illegal to sit in a public place?”
Cop: “They’re drinking alcohol. It’s illegal to drink in public, and they’re minors! They’re like, 14!”
I look at the 2 girls, all ass and tits and hoed up. “If they’re 14, humanity is lost!”
One of the girls, to her demise, shouted at him, “Yeah idiot, I’m 16!”
The cop is like, “Even worse!”
Me: “Worse to drink at 16 rather than 14, awright!”
Cop: “It’s illegal to drink in public, and it’s illegal for minors to drink period!”
Me: “Okay, so if the booze is the problem, confiscate it; don’t remove kids from a public park they get to be in! If minors with booze is what bothers you and you’re sending them somewhere else WITH it, there will just be minors with booze elsewhere.”
Cop: “As I said, it’s illegal.”
Me: “Yeah well, and they’re gonna illegal someplace else thanks to you. Take the booze and leave them alone!”
Cop: “Miss…”

I realized I was talking to a mouth breather and started to wonder if that flashlight, from that distance, was strong enough to establish that I was indeed a white Jewish female and in no danger of getting shot for my Bulldog looking like a gun or something. I told the kids he was a douchebag, one of them “smart” enough to pass it on to the cop (I’m-16-girl, obviously), and went home.

I successfully fought back the urge to ask if he’d have proceded the same if the kids weren’t Arab. I’ve seen Israeli police selectively protecting and serving according to ethnicity before. Up close, and in the news. Ignoring an Arab girl getting beat up by 2 Arab guys, violently arresting hundreds of Arab persons of interest in a murder case but being all gentle with identified Jewish murderers, etc. This is why I had meddled in the first place. From where that cop had been standing, flashlight or no flashlight, identifying their drinks as alcohol was an impressive feat but you could hear those kids talking very vulgar in Arabic from miles away. They had been sitting in a dark place where someone had to make a detour to get, and there was no light, so who called the cops on them KNOWING they were drinking, when they were out of sight, but not out of earshot? I doubt the alcohol had ever been the real issue. Otherwise it would have been confiscated. If minors aren’t allowed to drink at all, they’re not allowed to drink anywhere and just kicking them out of a public park isn’t enforcing shit. If as a cop, you catch a minor with an illegal substance, do you send him away with it?

And somewhere in Haifa tonight, a woman gets raped, a child gets beaten, or a man gets murdered because 2 cops were busy enforcing the prohibition of alcohol in public by removing the drinkers but not the alcohol, and without enforcing the prohibition of minors drinking altogether, because being petty with Arab kids who don’t know the law for shit, is just so very recreational.
So parents, if you find your kids passed out in your building, it’s because cops only care about removing the sight of drinking minors from the public eye, not the drinking from the minors. Because, you know, I’m against alcohol altogether, and I’m all for protecting minors from it. But this isn’t what happened here. What happened here, was police letting minors get drunk, but not while using their right to sit on a park bench.

Hell no.

Just an Arab.

23 Oct

My fellow Jewish Zionists will hate me for this, but I don’t believe in exclusionism or whatever you call it, when this country insists to be morally superior to the whole damn world.

I want to give an eyewitness example of how the ever-so-praised Israeli Jews do their part in keeping the Jewish-Arab chasm as deep as possible. It’s not just “settlers” who bully Arabs in news-worthy ways, it’s the whole system that does not honor its promise of racial and ethnic equality where it comes to things that have nothing to do with Jewish identity.

A few weeks ago, I had a guy over for the night. Woke up around 4, went to the living room. Even before falling asleep I had heard a girl screaming angrily at someone but couldn’t make out what, or in what language. Now it was still going on and I looked out the window to see what was happening. I found an Arab girl, not very religious from the looks of her outfit and hair, no older than perhaps 22, but more around 18, 19. 3 Arab guys the same age were with her. From what little Arabic I understood, she was angry at at least one of them, lots of “Achosharmuta” and something about mothers. At some point she shoved one of the guys who then grabbed her arm and pulled her into all 3 guys’ reach. She tore free and ran onto the road where a bus was pulling in. She begged the driver to let her in, but when he spotted the three other men, he decided he wanted nothing to do with this and drove off, almost hitting her.

The guy she had shoved, who seemed to be her main “opponent”, ran up to her, pulled her to her feet, punched her to the ground, and kicked her in the back.
At that point I shouted down at them that they need to weigh their actions with witnesses around. I was utterly ignored and the girl, being upset beyond coherent thought, lunged at the guy again, but only weakly lashing at him, not really dangerous in any way.
From just before I shouted at them, my date had joined me and while I was shouting and thinking about what chair to beat those guys up with, he grabbed me and said, “They’re just Arabs, don’t get yourself into trouble for those apes”. Ignored his remark and called the cops.

Now while the bus driver and my date were merely very damn disappointing (does it matter if they’re Arabs when 1 girl is attacked by 3 men?), the police really drained what little was left of my “Holy Land Yay”. Dispatcher asked, all guilty-like, “Are they Arabs?” and at first I thought she just wanted to know for identification purposes. Only later did I stop to think that “3 young men pouncing on 1 screaming girl” should be enough.
I understood why she’d asked that when the police came. They had sent 1 single young man to deal with this. Now the girl was screaming in Hebrew, and it turned out that one of those men had gotten her pregnant against her will (don’t know if it was rape or just irresponsible consensual sex), and in doing so, hurt her mother and her family honor. Judging by how upset she was about this, she must have been in real trouble or at least convinced that she was. The thing is, you don’t send a man to deal with these issues, you send along a woman, ideally an Arab woman who knows about Arab family values and understands why this girl was so distraught. In the end nobody was arrested and my neighbor, as much as I hate that ars for many valid reasons, walked her to safety.

So basically, Arabs here tend to be what African Americans are in the States. Only worth police attention when they (seem to) endanger white people, or here, Jews. Otherwise, send way to few cops way too late and have them do way too little because hey, it’s just Arabs. I don’t care how crazy that girl went on those guys and that she made too little attempts to walk away (when she did, they didn’t let her), they were three men ganging up on a pregnant girl. And the cops took their jolly time to send ONE utterly useless guy.

It’s no wonder Arabs are less than appreciative of their Jewish co-citizens. We desperately squeal Hasbarah all over the Internet and beyond and act all inclusive and accepting and make it all seem like the Arabs’ fault, but when you call the cops on 3 guys beating up 1 girl, ethnicity should not matter and all of Israel’s Hasbararians should be ashamed of this. Jews are doing their share to keep the hate flowing just as much as Arabs are. And it’s bad enough individuals are doing it, but police???
