Conflicting Stories over ĎAssaultí of Journalist in Hevron (Israel)
INN ^ | 5/21/2014, 4:18 PM | Ari Soffer

A photographer who claimed to have been assaulted by Jews celebrating Lag Ba’Omer in Hevron has responded to allegations that the incident was fabricated, insisting that he was indeed attacked as he tried to film the event.

Emil Salman, who was covering the celebrations in the ancient Judean city on Saturday night, along with veteran Haaretz journalist Amira Hass, told Arutz Sheva the incident lasted “for about 40 seconds”, and began when he tried to approach the Jews’ traditional Lag Ba’Omer bonfire. […]

Surprisingly, he said he hadn’t suffered any injuries in the attack, apart from a “pain in the back of my leg”.

But Hevron resident and the community’s youth coordinator Anat Cohen, who arranged the Lag Ba’Omer event, challenged his version of events. “There were lots of police around—if he was assaulted he should have told the police, or let him lodge a formal complaint,” she said. “The truth is no one got hit; let’s not mess around”. …

Sometimes I feel restless, ill at ease, anxious, filled woth foreboding, able to identify why, but unable to make it stop. It is most troublesome in the evening.

Sleep can elude me. Not from anything I regret but just knowing the next day will be more of the same. Now, that should be enough to weary me. But, it does not.

So it goes on. I want so badly to see justice and truth prevail and fail to see any likelihood of that occurring.

It is a daily disappointment that is suffering anew. Like a cut that won’t heal, an itch you cannot scratch, reading and seeing the absolute perfidy, debauchery, and baseness of people who invent claims, who lie, who will do anything for a moments notice in a publication or on a radio or tv broadcast.

Coreless, hollowed out caricatures of what God created man to be.

I am amazed each day when I awake that God has yet again foregone cleansing the planet.

The heathen satan worshippers that bedevil Israel daily will meet God. They won’t like it very much.

When you see stuff like that, it’s a sign that it will certainly come to a halt suddenly.
