American Teen Brutally Beaten by Israeli Police, Family Says
abc ^ | 7-5-2014 | ALEXANDER MARQUARDT

Posted on 07/05/2014 8:39:17 AM PDT by Citizen Zed

A 15-year-old American high school student was beaten and jailed by Israeli police in what his mother called an “attempted murder," as the incident happened a day after his cousin was killed.

The teen, Tariq Abu Khdeir from Tampa, Florida, was on a summer holiday with his parents and sisters in Jerusalem, visiting family in the eastern part of the city. Video clips posted online show three Israeli police officers in riot gear repeatedly beating a young Palestinian, identified as Abu Khdeir by his family, and dragging him away to arrest him.

On Wednesday morning, Tariq’s cousin, 16-year-old Muhammad Abu Khdeir, was murdered in what is widely believed to have been a revenge attack for the recent kidnapping and murder of three Israeli Jewish teens.

I have a feeling there is a little something more to this story that we have not been told. Like maybe this is not a typical vacation spot and perhaps the family and teen were there for another purpose.

When I hear “American teen”, I think of Beaver Cleaver’s older brother, not some Arab terrorist in training.

There's surely more to this story that would appear to be the case,as explained in this piece.One factor that must be considered is that followers of the Religion of Pieces *always* consider themselves to be moslems before they consider themselves to be a particular nationality.I'm willing to give the Israelis the benefit of the doubt until I see compelling evidence to the contrary.

ABC just helping provide a little balance to the news from Israel.

Can't have their readers sympathizing with Israel and forgetting one of the left's favorite causes - the "occupation" of Palestine.

They handed a big propaganda tool to the left.

When the muzzies do it, it’s OK with the United Nations and the Nazis.

When it’s anyone associated with Israel, the media pumps it up.

The settlers should not have killed that kid. And Hamas definitely shouldn’t have killed those three Israelis.

Remember when Colin Bowell kept going off about “the cycle of violence”? None dare call it what it is: An attempt by a significant percentage of muslims to push Israel into the sea. The Cup of Trembling will continue to tremble.

Until some man confirms the covenant. And then....

According to the Israeli police, he was with 5 other Arab teens, masked and armed with knives. We are supposed to think that is normal for an Arab boy and get outraged that he was arrested and roughed up. BUT don’t waste your time feeling sympathy for the also-American-citizen Israeli teen that was kidnapped with 2 others and killed, when they were hitchhiking home. That (hitchhiking with friends) is reason to kill someone, right? Carrying knives in the middle of an uprising is just business as usual. Or so they would want us to believe!

Don’t think for a second that the Palestinians and their sympathetic Arab allies aren’t aware of the anti-Israel bias in our news media and they will seek any opportunity to exploit it. We don’t know the full story. Could be rogue cops but more than likely this young terrorist in training was up to no good. Oh, sorry. How dare I accuse the poor, exploited Palestinians and anyone associated with the religion of war, er I mean peace.

There’s no evidence they did.

Former Fetus:" According to the Israeli police, he was with 5 other Arab teens, masked and armed with knives."

Let me see: a blood relative, with 5 other Arabs, masked , and armed with knives.
Sounds like your typical family outing .. /s

Any outrage against Arab/Palestinian the world goes nuts. Any outrage against Jews, crickets and frogs from the world.

We don’t know that they did. In fact, some say he may have been “honor killed” by his family because he was gay.

The teen, Tariq Abu Khdeir

As soon as I read the headline, I knew the teen's name would not be Tom Rover, Ken Holt or Frank Hardy.

The only way to respond to these so called news outlets is the same way that Dan Aykroyd responded to jane Curtin in their news skits, "Jane you ignorant slut". Because, to paraphrase G.I. Joe, knowing the problem is half the battle!

“I have a feeling there is a little something more to this story that we have not been told.”.........

My thoughts exactly. Probably was there shooting his mouth off thinking he as here in the U.S. where he would be protected due to his age, not so in Israel.
