Dozer Jihad Update, Â Red Hot News:
Makor Rishon correspondent Hodaya Karish-Hazony, reports today that “Mem”,Â the soldier who killed the terrorist yesterday in Jerusalem, had beenÂ severely beaten by police during an anti-disengagement protest that tookÂ place May 2005.
“Mem”, who at the time was 17, was beaten unconscious by police as heÂ photographed – from the sidewalk – a protest in Ramat Gan during which theÂ road was blocked.
Karish-Hazony suggests that police decided to beat him unconscious evenÂ though he was standing on the sidewalk and not involved in blocking the roadÂ in an attempt to stop him from documenting the event.
“Mem” was detained and released several days later and his file was closedÂ for “lack of evidence” – a move that left a police record that made itÂ necessary for him to have to fight the IDF in order to be drafted into anÂ elite unit.
Yediot Ahronot reports that it took “Mem” two years of arguing with the IDFÂ before he was ultimately drafted into an elite unit.

Ynet News:Â “I can’t believe he did what he did; he was a good, caring person,” the Jewish ex-girlfriend of Hossam Dawyyat said Thursday, a day after the bulldozer driver’s killing spree in downtown Jerusalem left three people dead.
King of Jordan ridicules boycott of Israel
“…In fact, I cannot think of a major company that does not do businessÂ
with Israel. If all these companies are offlimits then we are in deepÂ
trouble. For example, Intel whose chips power 80 per cent of computersÂ
around the world has billions of dollars of investments in Israel; itsÂ
closest competitor AMD also has large investments in Israel. Does that meanÂ
we should throw our computers away? This is nonsense. If we follow this lineÂ
of thought, then we will be doing the best service to Israel. All it has toÂ
do is use the best technology and best talent in the world and automaticallyÂ
it would be offlimits to us. “
