Photographed punching an Arab woman? Sue the photographer

A freelance photographer who documented three young Jewish women attacking an Arab woman in Jerusalem is being sued for defamation after Israel’s most popular television news channel published her photos. Now she is asking for the public’s help to fund her legal defense.

Dorit Jordan-Dotan, who last year photographed a group of Jewish women attacking an Arab woman in Jerusalem, launched a campaign last week to fund her legal defense; the Jewish women whom she documented in the scuffle are suing her for NIS 300,000 (roughly $80,000) in damages. Under the banner, “Political lawsuit against freedom of expression,” Jordan-Dotan is asking for the public’s help — through an Israeli website similar to Kickstarter — in funding her legal defense. At the time of writing, she had raised over two-thirds of the requested amount (NIS 30,000).

In February 2013, Jordan-Dotan, an independent documentary photographer, saw a scuffle break out at the Kiryat Moshe light rail station in Jerusalem. She picked up her camera and documented what she saw. According to the three plaintiffs, Shafra Richter, Ruth Meshulami and Chen Alfas, who are being represented by Attorney Doron Nir-Zvi, Jordan-Dotan caused them great harm by distributing the photos in which they can be seen striking the Arab woman, “without putting forth the photographs from when the incident began, from which it would be possible to see that the plaintiffs were defending themselves against the same Arab woman.” According to them, Jordan-Dotan “provided the deceptive photographs to media outlets that distorted reality, whereas the light rail security cameras show that it was actually the Arab woman who started the skirmish.”

Another claim of theirs touches on the fact that Jordan-Dotan did not blur the young Jewish women’s faces, despite the fact that they were minors at the time of the incident, and she therefore committed a criminal offense and violated their privacy. The plaintiffs also claim that in an interview to Channel 2 News, Jordan-Dotan said that the Arab woman was the victim of an attack, which they claim, is contrary to reality. Channel 2 News is also being sued by the three women.

On behalf of his clients, Attorney Nir-Zvi demanded in Jerusalem Magistrate’s Court that each of his three clients be compensated NIS 100,000 (roughly $26,000). Additionally, he asked that Jordan-Dotan and Channel 2 News be ordered to “destroy all of the publications and photographs relating to the plaintiffs that exist on the Internet.”

Through her attorney, Yadin Elam, Jordan-Dotan filed her response to the suit last week. According to her, she documented the violent incident that she saw and passed along the documentation to media outlets in good faith. She added that she did not witness the start of the scuffle and did not document that part of the confrontation. She passed along all of the photos in her possession to media outlets, she emphasized, without any selection or filtering on her part. According to Jordan-Dotan, she did not know and could not have known what the plaintiffs’ ages were, and the moment that she was made aware that they were minors at the time of the incident, she removed those photos in which their faces could be seen.

According to Jordan-Dotan, the lawsuit was filed against her is a frivolous suit designed “to send a clear, tough and threatening message to anyone who in the future may find themselves in the defendant’s shoes — who sees such an incident and dares to give their photos, testimony and impressions to a journalist.”

“After the photos were published in the media, the defendant suffered mudslinging and slander attacks, including threats and insults via email and Faceook as well as responses in newspapers,” Jordan-Dotan says. Attorney Itamar Ben-Geir, who was representing the plaintiffs at the time, even raised the possibility that Jordan-Dotan herself was part of a conspiracy with the Arab woman who was attacked. In light of that claim of defamation, Jordan-Dotan is demanding counter-damages of NIS 100,000 (roughly $26,000) from the plaintiffs.

“It is incumbent upon the plaintiffs to take up their claims about the publication with the publishers, and not with the defendant,” Jordan-Dotan added.

Channel 2 News claims, through its attorneys Yishgav Nakdimon and Dakela Biran, that the reports which it published about the incident were “truthful reports based on photographic evidence of the incident — that took place in a public space — and about the police investigation that was opened into it.” Channel 2 added that in doing so it was — legally — carrying out “its journalistic and public duty to publish materials of public interest.”

Channel 2 goes on to argue that, “the photos that were published in the news reports speak for themselves and prove that the young Jewish women photographed in them, attacked the Arab woman and struck her with their hands.”

“The reason that the attack began is of no importance,” Channel 2 News argued. “And even if the physical attack shown in the pictures was provoked somehow by the Arab woman, that does not lessen the severity of the young women’s violent response, which is shown in the photos.”

Channel 2 News also claims that there is nothing in its report that could defame the plaintiffs. In addition, the company’s counsel emphasized, its employees did not know that the photographed women were minors at the time of publication.

In its response to the suit, Channel 2 News points out that it removed from its website — “Mako” — the interview with Jordan-Dotan as well as another report on the incident, without admitting to any of the claims against it. In addition, the company wrote, it blurred the faces of the Jewish women in other articles that remain on its website. However, the Channel 2 interview with Jordan-Dotan from immediately after the incident remains available on the website of Channel 2 concessionaire “Reshet,” which also publishes material from Channel 2 News.

    1. “On behalf of his clients, Attorney Nir-Zvi demanded in Jerusalem Magistrate’s Court that each of his three clients be compensated NIS 100,000 (roughly $26,000). Additionally, he asked that Jordan-Dotan and Channel 2 News be ordered to “destroy all of the publications and photographs relating to the plaintiffs that exist on the Internet.”

      I don’t know what happened prior to the 3 women attacking the lone woman, but 3 against 1? I don’t care if they were 25 or 15, what they did was criminal. If they felt safe enough to attack this woman on the street, then they darn well better be prepared to deal with the consequences of their act. Curious, has this been called an act of terrorism, or is that label only reserved for Palestinians? To make matters worse, they’ve found a lawyer sleazy and greedy enough to pursue a suit against Ms. Dotan and Channel 2 for providing evidence of their crime. When I think it won’t get any worse, it does. I hope there’s a judge who’ll throw the case out of court, demand the damages they sought be paid to Ms. Dotan and punish the lawyer for bringing a ridiculous lawsuit into his/her court. This is absurd. These young women should get the same exact punishment as would be given to a Palestinian. That might cause a change in people who believe they are above the law.

        You do not want to admit that there might be an alternative explanation. The Arab woman may have started the altercation and the Jewish teenagers stepped in to protect the Jewish woman. The police are investigating and there could be charges against the Jewish teenagers or the Arab woman. The police and courts will sort the truth of this matter.

        Now what is clear is that the photographer and Channel 2 published the faces of minors without blurring them. One can easily see that these are not adults. They have the right to sue the photographer and news channel for breach of their rights. The real question is what should be the amount of the compensation? I expect the news channel will settle out of court. The photographer may consider doing the same.

        • Actually I did raise the question of whether the woman who was allegedly assaulted started a verbal confrontation but you have to look at near the bottom of the page to see it. I read this article and posted another article: Arab Woman Allegedly Assaulted By Zionist Orthodox Girl In Jerusalem – Shmarya Rosenberg FailedMessiah.com

          I’ve made alot of comments on this thread and don’t expect you to read them all but please don’t assume that because my concern wasn’t for the women who allegedly did the assault, that I or people like me are incapable of abstract thinking, are cognizant of the fact that there are at least 2 sides to every story. I’m not deterred from responding in spite of the fact that my character has been maligned and I’ve been encouraged to kill myself (I don’t make this shit up). I don’t agree with a lot of people here, but aside from telling one to fuck off, I wouldn’t suggest ways for those folks to kill themselves, make wild accusations about lifestyle or the like. I’m not looking for sympathy, but want to point out that when people are more interested in slinging shit and making outrageous accusations than the issues at hand it doesn’t speak well for their position or whatever they feel they must constantly defend.

          It is clear from the pictures that the three Israeli teenagers were considerably larger than the Palestinian woman and the likelihood of the woman attacking the teens is virtually nil while attacks on Palestinians by Israeli Jews of all ages has been well documented over the years by Israelis, Palestinians, and foreign journalists.

          These young women are probably no different than the young Judeo-Nazis hollering for Palestinian blood during Israel’s war on Gaza and which were available on the net.

          That they should be compensated for their display of violence and ethnic chauvinism would be a travesty.

            You ignore that Arab attacks on Israelis greatly exceed the number of attacks on Arabs. So your assumptions are wrong and no conclusions can be drawn from false assumptions.

            The photographer infringed the rights of these teenagers and must pay compensation.

            “Arab attacks on Israelis greatly exceed the number on Arabs” That must be the biggest joke of all time. Are you delirious? Israel has invaded, attacked, raped, stolen, raped and been the initiator of Nazi-copied behavior.

            YOU are the brainwashed fool that makes assumptions.

            “The photographer infringed the rights of these teenagers and must pay compensation.”

            ISRAEL INFRINGED ON THE RIGHTS OF LAND TO ALL PALESTINIANS!! Don’t tell me about rights when Israelis steal, murder and cover their evil nazi regime.

            Hatzallah in 2013 recorded that there were 5644 attacks by Arabs against Israelis in Judea and Samaria in the first half of that year. OCHA recorded for the whole year 399 attacks by Israelis against Arabs.

            So who is the fool?

            Algemeiner: Hatzalah Report:

            “2013 Six Month Report: 5,635 Violent Attacks Committed Against Jews in Israel, West Bank”

            “including 611 molotov cocktail attacks”

            Yehudit Tayar, a medic and spokeswoman for the Hatzalah organization, said:

            “Can you imagine being attacked on a consistent basis and it not even being reported?”

            Shin Bet reported 1271 terrorist attacks in 2013 against Israelis.

            UN Office of the Coordinator for Humanitarian Affairs, in its report of January 14-20, 2014 said 2013 saw 399 attacks on Palestinians and Palestinian property by Israelis in the West Bank.

            So one can see that illegal Palestinian violence greatly exceeds the illegal violence of the members of Israeli communities in Judea and Samaria.

            Palestinian Arab violence has been the source of loss in both the Israeli and Palestinian Arab communities. Palestinian leaders aligned their interests with Germany and the German attempt to exterminate the Jewish people. In 1947 Arab violence sought to commit a second genocide against the Jewish people in Mandate Palestine. The Jews defended themselves and delivered a hammer blow to Palestinian bases located in their villages, town and cities.

            Jordan conquered the West Bank and Egypt Gaza. Both of those areas were ethnically cleansed of all Jews. 20% of the population in Israel remained Arab.

            No Arab or Jew would have lost his home or died, if the leaders of the Palestinian community had accepted peace and the partition plan. Instead they chose war as their arbitrator and lost. They then suffered the natural consequences of losing an existential war. They lost the state they could have had and surrendered much territory.

      Arab Woman Allegedly Assaulted By Zionist Orthodox Girl In Jerusalem
      Shmarya Rosenberg • FailedMessiah.com

      Police in Jerusalem are investigating an alleged assault on an Arab woman. The attack took place Monday in the Kiryat Moshe neighborhood of the city, Ynet reported, at the light rail station.

      A witness, Dorit Yorden-Dotan, says she was standing across the road when she saw a group of Jewish women attack an Arab woman, hitting her and yelling at her.

      “A young religious Jewish woman who passed by the station suddenly punched the Arab woman in the face, while she was standing there. When the woman tried to defend herself, the attacker’s friends came to her assistance, [and] started hitting [the Arab woman], and pushed her toward the station’s wall. They yelled at her ‘Don’t you dare touch a Jew,’ and ‘you have no business being here.’ The Light Rail security guard was there but he did nothing, he didn’t get involved.…Many people just stood by and didn’t help her…The attack was nationalistically motivated; you don’t need to be a genius to see that,” Yorden-Dotan told Ynet.

      ‘Don’t you dare touch a Jew.”You have no business being here.’ What was the Torah study for this woman at her daddy’s knee? Yikes.

      What happened with the victim? Has she pressed charges against the terroristas?

        If the treatment of M. Abu Khedier’s family is to go by then the Palestinian woman has probably been arrested multiple times, her home raided repeatedly by the police, and other members of her family arrested and beaten by the police. Because? Only democracy in the Middle East

          Oh my gosh I really stuck my foot in it with that. How stupid of me. Why would any non-Jew lodge a complaint against a Jew (“religious” one too – sacred cow) to the Jewish authorities? What would be the point? You’re right, this is the only democracy in the middle east – what could possibly go wrong?

            manic marnie, I have said this to you before and I will say it again: obsession with- and hatred of Jews is a serious disease that will ultimately destroy you. Do you ever ponder what you write or are you already losing control of your mind? Worst stuff than what appear to have taken place here happens in your own country where African Americans are hunted down like wild animals and shot in day light, in the middle of the street! You are not outraged about that; you protest nowhere against such heinous crimes; you do nothing to heal YOUR OWN country FIRST, etc. On the contrary, for you it’s all about the “Jew”, the “Jew” and the “Jew”. Let go of this your mania, manic marnie, or seek help if you are unable to do it on your own. Seriously!

            I am outraged by events such as this wherever and whenever they occur whether in Israel, the US, the UK, Syria or anywhere else you can name.

            You, on the other hand, always want to give a pass when people just as this vile racist women are Jewish. You and your fellow defenders of whatever Israel does show that you believe that whatever Israel and its Jewish inhabitants do should never be criticized or be seen by the public. I have yet to ever read criticisms by you of anything that Israel has done. I guess you think that Jews are above everyone else and that they should be able to do whatever they want to anyone else, especially if the anyone else, happens to be a Palestinian.

            There have been plenty of times when Jews attack Muslim women. I have a photo from several years ago in which a Jewish brat is kicking a Muslim women while a Jewish women is pulling off the woman’s head scarf. Jewish adults were seen standing by and doing nothing to stop the actions of these young racist punks. You probably would have done nothing either. In fact, you might have egged them on.

          • Did you ever see the rant of Joan Rivers a few weeks before she died? She was coming to an airport or leaving the airport and went BSC (batshit crazy) when questioned about the Palestinian deaths – I think it was at the end of July. She said horrible things but the end of her rant was “They started it.” That’s the argument of a 5-year-old isn’t it? It’s the same juvenile mentality that will argue “Look what they do in the _______ (fill in whatever country)” as if that justifies what they’re doing. It is taking horrible action without accountability and when you call them on it, you’re called “israel-hater”, “Jew-hater”, “anti-semite”, “self-hating Jew”, “moron”, “imbecile”, “idiot”,etc. Sigh.

            For once, Ginger, I have to agree with you. This has nothing to do with Jewishness as most liberals would understand the term; this is about hooliganism, ethno-nationalist bigotry, religious fundamentalism, about the paranoia, hatred and racism within “a sick society” to quote the Israeli president. But this isn’t about Judaism. As Norman Pollock said: “Judaism does not need Israel. It is a world religion with fundamental moral-ethical principles, all of which Israel violates on a daily basis.”

      I’m bored. I think I’ll pretend to be a Hasbara troll: “It really is terrible how nefarious groups of self-hating Jewish anti-Semites, funded by Qatar, the European Union and ISIS, conspire to besmirch the reputations of pure Jewish maidens and thereby defame all of G-d’s chosen people. They plant pairs of female agents provocateurs on Jerusalem’s light railway, each cell consisting of a portly middle-aged Arab woman and a scruffy left-wing photojournalist. On a predetermined signal, the Arab woman screams “Allahu Akbar” and punches a series of buttons on her cell phone, intentionally misleading the other passengers to believe that she is trying to blow herself up in order to mass-murder Jews and wake up in heaven with 72 swarthy but handsome gigolos by her side. When a trio of bold and righteous Bnei Akiva girls, inspired by the example of our foremothers Deborah, Yael and Golda Meir, boldly set upon the terrorist to foil her diabolical plan, she cleverly drops her cell phone while her photojournalist partner begins snapping pictures for the evening news. However, thank heavens there are saintly lawyers who are willing to fight for truth and justice in the name of Greater Israel and her chaste avengers!”

      “Also, the Balfour Declaration, TERROR, the mufti of Jerusalem, the Hebron massacre of 1929, the Arabs rejected the UN Partition plan, and look what happened when we left Gaza. In conclusion, we offered them a state but they said No, and Hamas fires Scud missiles from behind baby carriages. Thank you.”

      No biggie!

      (a) This is nothing more than a story of what happened between two private citizens. Nothing more. Nothing less! No State-actor involved. Get that thru your thick skulls;
      (b) Israel is country just like any other Western country that is based on the Rule Of Law. Israelis are human beings just like other human beings in other countries. Just like in other countries, Israeli citizens sometimes get into a scuffle/fight with one another. Such conflicts are resolved in accordance with the law.
      (c) Worse than the scuffle that took place here takes place between exclusively Arab women;
      (d) Worse than the scuffle that took place here takes place between exclusively Jewish women;
      (e) Worse than the scuffle that took place here takes place between exclusively Arabs and Jews – with the Arabs being the ones that commit murders, rapes, etc.;
      (f) Worse than what took place here takes place in the United States, the UK, France, Germany, The Netherlands, etc. and are racially motivated. If you need examples, I will be more than glad to provide them (and I start by mentioning Renisha McBride, 19, an African American woman).

      I thus, see no reason why y’all are excited and hallucinating about this non-news – except of course if you are obsessed with Jews. Go get a life, imbeciles!

        Ginger, I think you may be misunderstanding the point of 972. This purpose of this site is not to demonize Israel, it’s to show that Israel is a perfectly normal country. Israeli citizens are neither more nor less racist than the citizens of any other country (which is to say: they are racist as hell), the foreign policy of Israel is neither more nor less ethical than those of other countries (which is to say: it’s morally bankrupt) and so on. No more Jewish/Israeli exceptionalism: henceforth let us examine Israel just as we would any other country.

      That’s an interesting point of view. Maybe you’re right. If, however, the protagonists had been 3 Palestinian women attacking a lone Jewish woman, would you still say “no biggie”?

        YES – if race/ethnicity got nothing to do with it. Israeli citizens (Jews, Christians, Druze, Muslims, etc.) have their private conflicts all the time as happens in your own country. As long as race/ethnicity has nothing to do with the reason(s) someone got hurt in such conflicts, nobody cares except those directly involved in it. In the instant case, there is no evidence whatsoever that the Jewish female children involved walked up to the Arab woman and “attacked” her (as you claim) because she is an Arab. If that were to be the case, an overwhelming majority of Jewish Israelis will condemn that outright! Obviously that’s news to you; and it gets worse than that: when Jews are actually attacked and murdered because they are Jews, all we get from you and your ilk is either (a) dead silence or (b) justification/rationalization for the murders and/or (c) outright support for the murders!

          I didn’t write the article! These aren’t my claims but the words of the woman at the scene, the photographer Dorit Jordan-Dotan. Perhaps you should actually read the article, then you’d be in a better position to discuss it. You’re doing yourself no favors by commenting without understanding the content of the article. Also I’m struck by your “no biggie” remark, and also referring to the 3Jewish women as “children”. That’s a bit disingenuous and in itself may be in an attempt to diminish the gravity of what allegedly happened. I’m trying to understand where you’re coming from and also why would you suggest I kill myself? How in the world can you justify your hostility? I left the page open where you made your suggestions for my self-demise and my daughter went to my desk and read what you wrote.

            1. Nowhere in the entire article is there a sentence that says that the Arab woman was attacked because she was an Arab. If you dispute that, pls. provide the quote.

            2. “In February 2013, Jordan-Dotan, an independent documentary photographer, saw a SCUFFLE break out at the Kiryat Moshe light rail station in Jerusalem” (emphasis mine). It was a “SCUFFLE”! Tell me what part of the word “SCUFFLE” is toooo hard to understand?

            3. “According to them [the three girls], Jordan-Dotan “provided the deceptive photographs to media outlets that distorted reality, whereas the light rail security cameras show that it was actually the Arab woman who started the skirmish. (insert in bracket mine)”. (a) The Jewish female children were defending themselves and there is EVIDENCE to prove that; (b) The evidence of the security cameras is NOT disputed! Why is that too hard to understand?

            Again, why are you bent on blaming Jews for Hiroshima and Nagasaki (serious sarcasm meant!)? Why the irrational fixation on Jews and Israel?

    8. If you read the story, this involved 3 Jewish women and 1 Palestinian woman, a 4th woman – angel with a camera, and an impotent Light Rail security guard. Math has never been my strong suit but the number of people here are 6. Assault is a serious matter, this occurred in a very public place and it was 3 assailants against 1. Talk about the sins of the US (not a citizen FYI) all you want but this is not an article about Ferguson. Its a subject near and dear to your heart, it is about Israel. You’ve called me names (are you in high school?), accused me of hating Israel and hating Jews. I hate evil thoughts, wickedness and unrighteousness and in my view zionism falls in the category of unrighteousness. I said quite clearly on another thread that I hate zionism, zionism and judaism are 2 separate entities, and criticism of the state of israel is not antisemitism or anti-israel. You also instructed me on suicide (my beliefs prohibit that, and I’m pretty sure it prohibits suggesting someone kill themself).

          You have no scintilla of evidence to support your claim of “assault”! You have NO idea as to who started the scuffle and the reasons thereof. Those around who noticed the SCUFFLE separated the parties (contrary to your claim). Beyond that, you have NO scintilla of evidence to demonstrate that the Arab woman suffered any physical injuries! And no, no Jewish women were involved, but rather 3 minor female CHILDREN! Stop the misinformation. Again, why are you excited and hallucinating about a “SCUFFLE” between a woman and three female kids? Because the kids are Jews? And what are you doing to solve even far worse problems in YOUR OWN country – why the fixation on Israel and Jews?

            And talking about “Light rail”, a few day ago, a 3-month old baby was ran over by an Arab terrorist driving a car. The baby’s sin? She was a Jewish baby. Said pedestrian wanted to slaughter innocent children, women and men emerging from the light rail by running them over with his car!

            Where was YOUR outrage? Again, why the fixation on Jews?

            The death of the Israeli baby was tragic but you seem to have forgotten the death of a 5 year old Palestinian girl who, along with her young friend, were hit by a settler as they walked along the road. She is not the first child to have died by the hands or car of a settler.

            10-year-old injured in settler hit-and-run; forces kidnap 3 in West Bank
            IMEMC/Agencies 25 Sept — An Israeli settler deliberately ran over a Palestinian child in the occupied east Jerusalem town of Silwan on Thursday, according to Wadi Hilweh Information Center. A source at the center told WAFA that a settler’s armored vehicle ran over a 10-year-old child in a deliberate hit and run assault while passing near the settlement outpost of ‘Beit Yehonatan’ (Jonathan’s House), built illegally on Silwan’s land. The child, Adam al-Risheq, reportedly sustained fractures in his hands and was transferred to hospital for treatment; his condition was described as “moderate”. Several Palestinians lost their lives in separate incidents after being run over by settlers in the occupied region in August, according to Press TV. On August 17, a Palestinian man was killed after being knocked down by an Israeli settler in East Jerusalem. Also, on August 14, a 23-year-old man was hit as he was trying to cross a street near the illegal settlement of Barkan, in Salfit. On August 7, a settler ran over and injured an eight-year-old Palestinian girl in the southern West Bank.
            In related West Bank news, Israeli forces kidnapped three Palestinians from districts of Bethlehem, Tubas and Hebron, according to reports by security sources and the Palestinian Prisoners’ Society. Forces raided the neighborhood of al-‘Attan Street, in Bethlehem city, where they abducted a 25-year-old Palestinian after breaking into and violently searching his home. Similar raids were conducted in Wadi Abu Freiha, in Beit Sahour, and Jabal al-Mawaleh neighborhood, in Bethlehem. However, no abductions were reported. Meanwhile, forces kidnapped a 27-year-old Palestinian after breaking into his home in Tubas. Forces also raided the Old City of Hebron, where they took a 30-year-old Palestinian. – See more at: http://mondoweiss.net/2014/09/settlers-palestinian-abducted#sthash.feuAxr2d.dpuf

            1. “It’s assault regardless of who “started it.”

            Oh boy! LoL. I am about to burst one of my lungs laughing … pls. pls. someone call me a doctor… Singe, seriously, you must become a comedian because I see you are very talented in making people really laugh. Thanks for the laugh of the day (no kidding – truly).

            2. EVIDENCE from the SECURITY CAMERA that proves (a) that the Arab woman started “the assault” and is thus the AGGRESSOR and (b) that the Jewish female kids were defending themselves.

            That evidence is NOT disputed!

            Incidentally, the “evidence from the security camera” statement comes from the perps. There is no proof that this so called evidence even exists, let alone proves anything!

    9. What is it about “I did not make these claims” that you don’t understand. You don’t like the article and try to make me responsible for it – that’s like shooting the messenger. I can only assume your continued obfuscation of my posts and this article, which you still haven’t read, shows you in a light that is not flattering to you intellectually or spiritually.

      I don’t think we’re on friendly enough terms just yet to discuss my nativity or any other personal details. I did tell you I have a daughter who saw your instructions and admonitions to kill myself, which disturbed her almost as much as it disturbed me. This is the action without accountability I talked about above. What gives you the idea that you can speak to me or anyone else with such blind hatred? The moderators did not censor you, as they definitely should have, but you certainly should have been able to censor yourself if you’re an adult.

      • The murder of innocent children is unforgivable. We’ll never know what motivated that man because he was shot and died.

        I did tell you I have a daughter who saw your instructions and admonitions to kill myself, which disturbed her almost as much as it disturbed me. What was your motivation for this? Was it because you assume I’m christian or muslim? My child did nothing to you and she was hurt by you nonetheless. What was your motivation? Do you just act impulsively, without any consideration of the consequences, as these 3 Jewish women did, and the Palestinian man who killed the baby?

          I see that you are getting dazed and confused. And now you are going to throw your own daughter into the mix to get sympathy? You are even more messed up than I thought, lady. Just get out of my face!

          • The problem is you don’t see past your own self. I want to know what motivated you to do such a hateful thing and to let you know that another person was affected by it. I dont want your sympathy I want to know why you talk the way you do and when I call you on it, now you want me out of your face. You can disagree without being sadistic.

            Marnie, the trouble here is that trying to have a reasonably honest and decent dialogue with Ginger is like going out to dinner with Hannibal Lecter. First he starts licking his fingers, then he starts licking YOUR fingers, and pretty soon you realize that you and he have very different ideas about dinner. Ginger is toxic. The theme from “The Twilight Zone” probably plays in the background when she walks down the street.

        ….. while you are at it, do not forget that there is EVIDENCE showing that the “Arabic Lady” attacked the Jewish female juveniles FIRST and that said juveniles defended themselves ….. just saying ……. because you and your ilk have proven time and time again that you ain’t the brightest bulb in the chandelier!

    11. The Palestinian woman looks shorter than her assailants. Was there a verbal confrontation with one Jewish woman (not a crime BTW), then was struck by the original woman with backup from 2 other women? That remains to be seen. Does it absolve the women charged of alledged assault by 3 women – HELL NO.

      Reply to Comment
      • The last sentence is an error and should read “Does it absolve the 3 women charged with assault – HELL NO.

        I really don’t need to add alleged as every crime is considered alleged until proven otherwise.

          manic marnie, the more one learns of you, the more it emerges that you even more than messed-up and psychotic. Here is what has emerged so far:
          a. you have no job;
          b. you are a single mother;
          c. you are on welfare;
          d. you are not seriously looking for a job to stand on your own feet and support yourself and your daughter, no, instead,
          e. you spend 24hrs a day and 7-days a week obsessing with Jews and Israel, visiting several websites ranting mumbo jumbo about stuff you have no understanding of.
          Apparently a person looses his/her right to defend him/herself from an “assault” by a grown “Arab woman”, because said person is Jew? Maybe you yourself should try assaulting folks in YOUR own country and see how they are going to mess-up your already messed-up psychotic self. What an hateful imbecile you really are!

        Question: who bears false witness? Well, here is the answer

        1. Above you wrote this:

        “(…). An Israeli settler deliberately ran over a Palestinian child in the occupied east Jerusalem town of Silwan on Thursday, according to Wadi Hilweh Information Center. (…)”.

        2. BUT, here is the undisputed EVIDENCE that you are a liar. Watch. and Weep!

        Answer: you, manic marnie bear false witness – motivated by hatred of Jews. That is racism. Said racism is a disease that has infested your soul an will ultimately destroy you! Seek help, before it is too late.

        Yes it’s become like a mafia. Omertà. This is degenerate. At least I want to think so. Maybe however it was always thus, since the founding of the state. Countries in the democratic West usually care about their reputation. But Israel, at least the Israel of Lieberman and Bennet and Netanyahu, seems to care less. Like a mafia they care only about what they can get away with. Or what they can get away with is a point of pride even. It has come to this.

    16. Why are you looking at race? These people who did this were wrong, was the photographer wrong? No, but she is Jewish…..Blame on the action and not the race…..That is ignorant. Now lets imagine, the arab girl was verbal and the Jewish crowd shot her dead, is that justified, how about vice versa? I think in both examples, it is wrong….Now go educate yourself before you comment about race, belief or actions. The issue here is about a community misbehaving and abusing the freedom of the arab woman, the photographer and the newspaper, and also on 3 different rights abuse. Go figure why they think they are entitled for a compensation.
