Without live bullets, without dead bodies

By Nehemia Strasler


Ha'aretz, 10/06/
2000


Violent demonstrations broke out in Prague last week during the joint conference of the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank. Young people arrived in the Czech capital from the four corners of Europe to protest globalization and capitalism.Thousands of these protesters were anarchists and hooligans, who exploited the opportunity to destroy, to perpetrate violence and to do as much damage as possible. They were dressed in black from head to toe and came armed with chains, knives and other weapons. They swept through the streets of Prague, leaving behind a trail of destruction - ripping sidewalks apart with shovels, hurling rocks at police officers, beating them with long poles and even throwing Molotov cocktails at them.

The lives of the police officers were in danger. Many of them were injured and required hospitalization. They defended themselves with shields; they sprayed the protesters with tear gas; they dispersed them with water cannons; they struck out at them with clubs; and they even arrested dozens who were held for questioning.

However, despite this difficult situation, no Prague police officer would ever have dreamed of using live ammunition. Nor did the Prague police position snipers at strategic locations so that they could "eliminate" protesters. The people of Prague know that in a democratic country, police and security forces do not fire live ammunition against demonstrators. If live bullets are used and if civilians are killed, harsh criticism is directed against the police; senior police officers pay for the tragic, horrible blunder with their jobs; and the episode goes down in the history of the nation as an infamous blot on its collective record.

In democratic states, the police force is a professional agency that specializes in crowd dispersal through the use of a variety of methods, but not by the use of bullets.

The police in Israel also know how to disperse crowds without having to kill anybody, but this know-how is applied only when the demonstrators happen to be Jews. The facts speak for themselves. During the course of the violent demonstrations on behalf of former Shas leader Aryeh Deri; in the harsh clashes with Ethiopian immigrants who were protesting their treatment by the authorities; in the riots organized on Bar-Ilan Street in Jerusalem by members of the ultra-Orthodox Jewish community, some of whom hurled rocks at police officers; and during the closure of major traffic arteries and intersections by angry workers, the police never once fired a shot, not even a rubber-coated bullet.

Yet, when a protest march was organized by local residents of the Harakevet district of Lod, the police did fire rubber-coated bullets at the demonstrators, wounding a large number of Arabs in the upper parts of their bodies. When the Bedouin held a demonstration near Omer, the police fired live bullets, killing one of the protesters.

Over the past week, police bullets killed 10 Israeli Arabs who participated in the demonstrations. Although these were violent clashes that were undoubtedly of a grave nature, the situation did not automatically warrant the use of live weapons. Even the police are not claiming that the lives of the officers at the demonstrations were in "substantive and imminent danger," a situation that, in accordance with a Supreme Court ruling, would justify the use of live ammunition.

The victims were not holding firearms when they were shot. The police opened fire because this is how they were taught to disperse Arab demonstrators. The police know that they have a license to shoot Arabs, regardless of whether those Arabs live on this or that side of the pre-1967 borders of Israel.

The police began to fire on the protesters in the very first hour of the demonstrations, as if they were dealing with enemies of the state who must be "put out of commission" - permanently. The police conveniently forgot that they were, in fact, confronting citizens of this country who were demonstrating because their pain is very real. Israeli police officers are trained to solve any problem involving Arab citizens by means of force. And if that does not work, then by means of more force - because "the only language that the Arabs understand is the language of force."

Nonetheless, the bullets and the deaths did not make the job of dispersing the demonstrators any easier for the police. To the contrary, they only fueled the flames: The demonstrations continued; the violence actually increased; and the protesters maintained their siege of many of the country's highways.

Haifa Police Chief Dov Shechter authorized his personnel to use live ammunition against demonstrators in the city "after the rubber-coated bullets and tear-gas canisters run out." Does this mean that inadequate handling of crowd dispersal situations and faulty organization are sufficient justification for killing civilians?

One of the television camera crews of Channel Two happened, quite by accident, to film an incident in Nazareth in which seven police officers cruelly beat two women, Dr. Nassrin Assouli and her sister, who were protesting the actions of the police, but who were completely unarmed, holding neither rocks nor clubs in their hands. The police officers cursed Assouli, humiliated her, hurled her to the ground, kicked her and broke her shoulder with a rifle butt. If this incident had not been photographed, the police would undoubtedly have denied that it ever happened.

And it is quite clear that this was not an isolated episode. How can we explain, for example, the fact that as pediatrician Dr. Ataf Ramadan was innocently driving down a side street in Nazareth, police suddenly let loose with a a volley of bullets directed at his car, wounding his wife in the chest and arms? In what possible way had she endangered the lives of the police officers?

Because of heavy pressure from the leaders of the Israeli Arab community, Prime Minister Ehud Barak was forced to agree to the appointment of a commission of inquiry. This commission should be led by a courageous magistrate, who should study each and every fatal shooting incident and determine whether, in each case, the life of the police officer who fired the shot was in "substantive and imminent danger," or whether the motive for the fatal bullet was pure hatred.

The magistrate heading the commission should also reach relevant executive conclusions regarding all levels of the law enforcement establishment, including Police Commissioner Yehuda Wilk and Public Security Minister (and acting Foreign Minister) Shlomo Ben-Ami.

It is simply intolerable to see senior police officers creating a wall of dead bodies between Jewish and Arab citizens of this country, thereby effectively destroying all of the achievements, all the cooperation and all the friendly ties associated with peaceful ethnic coexistence in Israel. Israeli Arabs have always been, and continue to be, welcome and equal citizens in this country. They must enjoy full rights, including the right to demonstrate without having to count the live bullets or the dead bodies in the aftermath.



"When a Jew, in America or in South Africa, talks to his Jewish companions about 'our' government, he means the government of Israel."

- David Ben-Gurion, Israeli Prime Minister
