Palestinian Police Chief Suspended For Helping Israeli Soldiers Fix A Flat Tire

A Palestinian police chief has been suspended after he was photographed helping Israeli soldiers fix a flat tire in the West Bank.

The intense hatred Palestinians feel for Israelis is once again expressed in the punishment of Palestinian police chief Colonel Ahmad Abu al-Rub, merely for helping Israeli soldiers fix a flat tire in the West Bank. The biggest outrage online was over “the image of him kneeling down in front of an Israeli soldier.” After all, as they fight the ongoing defensive war against the jihad since 1948, Israeli soldiers are falsely portrayed as “racist occupiers” who abuse Palestinians daily.

Al-Rub was accused of assisting the Israeli ‘occupation’ by helping the soldiers.

The Palestinian Authority routinely teaches hate toward Israelis to its people, even to children in school curricula and on children’s TV programs. Palestinians are also sentenced to hard labor for life for renting or selling land to Jews.

Meanwhile, 180,000 Palestinians were treated in Israeli hospitals this year; an Israeli doctor (the lead doctor for Save a Child’s Heart program) who saved thousands of Palestinian children was honored even by the Israel-bashing UN. Palestinian Arabs have the same rights as Israelis — and more so, as it is not mandatory that they join the IDF, but they are free to do so if they wish.

“Palestinian police chief is suspended for helping Israeli soldiers fix a flat tyre in the West Bank,” Associated Press, November 15, 2018:

A Palestinian police chief has been suspended after he was photographed helping Israeli soldiers fix a flat tire in the West Bank.

Colonel Ahmad Abu al-Rub was referred to an ‘investigative committee’ after an image of him kneeling down in front of an Israeli soldier caused outrage online.

Al-Rub was accused of assisting the Israeli ‘occupation’ by helping the soldiers.

It is not clear exactly when the incident took place, though images began circulating on social media earlier this week.

Al-Rub, the Hebron district chief, had seen the vehicle blocking a road and went to order the soldiers to move it.

When he got there he discovered the jeep was stuck after bursting a tire, and offered to help get it out of the way.

Elsewhere, four Israeli border guards were injured near Jerusalem after a knifeman made his way into a police base.

The assailant was seriously wounded as he was overpowered by officers during the rare attack inside a security force base late on Wednesday.

The attacker, who was not immediately identified, had scaled a fence around the base between the Palestinian neighbourhood of Jabel Mukabar and the settler district of Armon Hanatziv before being spotted.

Local media reported that one of the Israeli soldiers was injured by friendly fire, but police would not confirm or deny this.

A wave of stabbing attacks against Israelis by lone-wolf Palestinian assailants erupted in 2015 but has since become sporadic….
