Fact sheet: Israeli police fail to prosecute violence against Palestinians

Yesh Din publishes research and tracking of police investigations into allegations of violence against Palestinians perpetrated by Israeli citizens.

The updated figures show that between 2005 and 2013 just 8.5 percent of investigation files ended in the indictment of Israelis suspected of harming Palestinians and their property. In the vast majority of cases, the investigators failed to locate the offenders or to collect sufficient evidence for prosecution.

The new figures are virtually identical to those reported in the past. Accordingly, the past year has not brought any improvement in the ability of the police to investigate offenses by Israeli civilians against Palestinians and their property.

 

Yesh Din is a volunteer organization working to defend the human rights of the Palestinian civilian population under Israeli occupation.

      So? Unless you can rule out the hypothesis that Jews commit crimes more intelligently (ie: commit crime in such a way so as to evade getting caught) then you cannot derive anything from this, and certainly not establish an argument that racism is involved.

      So by all means, present your evidence ruling out the equally likely causes.
