Posted on 05/18/2013 2:23:40 PM PDT by Eleutheria5
The members of the emergency security squad (kitat konenut) at Amona, in the Binyamin region, announced Friday that they are collectively resigning their posts, after police arrested two of them. Police say that the two men had been throwing rocks at Arab marauders near their community, despite the fact that the IDF and police were present.
The members of the emergency team have reportedly handed in their guns and communications radio to the army.
The two men were under arrest at the Judea and Samaria (Shai) District Friday, but the police said they would be released before the Sabbath.
"I do not know members of an emergency security squad who throw rocks at Arabs when police and army forces are on the scene," a police officer in the Shai District told Arutz Sheva.
The security coordinator for the community was called in for questioning after the Sabbath, for firing in the air.
Residents of Amona said angrily that police mishandled the event. Arabs set fire to fields next to Amona, they said. Residents came out with fire extinguishers to put out the flames when they felt that their lives were at real risk.
"The fire came close to the homes and the members of the emergency security squad tried to drive them away without using live fire," one of them told Arutz Sheva. "This was a shameful display on the part of the security forces, who have failed at protecting the residents. ....

Throwing rocks at Muslims must remain a jail offense!
Shoot them, not stone them!
Meanwhile, at the Midway store in New Caney, a Baptist youth was ejected from the facility for belligerency and profanity.
Do the police arrest the Islamicists who throw rocks at Jews and Christians in Jerusalem?
(either way, it is clear that Isr will eventually have to stop pussy-footing around with them and, if necessary, remove the problem so it does not keep repeating and repeating and repeating... expect all sorts of mass media Bitching when that finally happens, of course....)
Well, by all means, post an article about it on a thread of your own. You do still remember how?
Do you mean to say that you are not equally concerned about trivia in MY neighborhood?
I am not concerned with what you post. If it doesn’t interest me, I don’t read it. If it does, I do. But I don’t bother reading it and then getting into a big argument with you just because I’m not interested in what you’re posting. Post your trivia. Go ahead. It’s a free republic.
Sometimes. Not often enough. Those stone-throwings that you see in the MSM are often staged for the cameras.
That doesn’t really make a lot of sense there buddy.
Why don’t you care as much about my local trivia as you wish others to care about yours?
Ah! It took me a few seconds, but now I see what’s the beef the Police have here.
The two were arrested for supplying ammo to the enemy.
This gets filed in the irony box under "...in so stating...."
“Why dont you care as much about my local trivia as you wish others to care about yours?”
In my neck of the woods, a minor incident can be the start of WW III. There can be months of murder and mayhem over it. I am tracing a trend here in Israeli society so as to understand the major repercussions of it whenever it all finally hits the fan. If that doesn’t interest you, that’s fine. If that doesn’t interest anyone else, that’s fine, too. I don’t care about your local trivia, because it doesn’t have that potential. But I might care about it if it was my son or if I lived near you. Either way, you are free to share your local news, and I should be free to share mine. You are free to discuss your local news on your thread, but good manners would dictate that you not impose it on mine, where I am discussing my local news with all its awful potential. If you ever started a thread, I would observe the same courtesy that I am recommending to you. The fact that anyone has to explain any of this to you suggests to me that you are losing it.
The PA is doing all it can to alleviate the rock shortage:-)
