American citizen held in Israeli

| July 5, 2014

TSO sends us a link from Fox News in regards to the arrest of US citizen 15-year-old Tariq Khdeir after his cousin 16-year-old Palestinian Abu Khdeir was found murdered last week following the murder of three Israeli teens. it looks like Tariq was arrested for shooting with his sling shot at Israeli police;

The State Department confirmed Saturday that American citizen Tariq Khdeir is being held by Israeli authorities in Jerusalem and called for an investigation into reports he was severely beaten while in police custody, amid escalating violence in the Middle East country.

As TSO points out, the dude has been in custody only a few hours and the State Department is looking into charges that he has been beaten by police. As far as I know, the US State Department hasn’t even mentioned to Mexican authorities the name of American citizen, Marine Sergeant Andrew Tahmooressi who has been held in Mexican prison for months and has reportedly been mistreated. And I don’t think Tahmooressi was throwing rocks at Mexican police.

I wonder why the disparity in the attention the two Americans are getting from the State Department?

    Good point Jonn. My guess is that Bibi get’s a phone call here shortly. What a shame Sgt. Tahmooressi has been rotting away a mere miles away from U.S soil. By the way, fuck you Mexico you third world shit hole fucking corrupt dump. All we do is appease those fuckers and all they do is take advantage of our generosity and kind nature. If we treated there citizens the way they treat ours we would be publicly condemned. Oh wait, we are condemned by people everyday, even the glorious U.N. Mexico, not so much. If that country was set ablaze I wouldn’t even go there to piss on it.

    Remind me why I should give a shit about “yutes” like this kid again?

    • DK says:

      because he’s an American citizen whose family member was murdered in revenge for a crime he didn’t commit?

      • NHSparky says:

        Show me where one is related to the other. Then show me where it justifies trying to take on Israeli police.

        It wasn’t too terribly long ago an American citizen made the decision to stand in front of a bulldozer. We now refer to her as St. Pancake.

        About 10 years before that, a kid in Singapore decided to vandalize some vehicles. He got sent home, but not before he got his ass beat (literally) for it.

          Yeah, I remember the bleeding hearts blithering about that little cupcake getting caned over there, I thought it was funny!!

      • UpNorth says:

        You know, for a fact, that the rock-thrower and his brother had nothing to do with the murder of the 3 Israelis? If you have that info, could you provide a link to a credible source for that info?

      • Grimmy says:

        Other than jihadiscum running their sumps, what proof is there that the murder victim was a revenge killing?

    There is already an online uproar in the ‘Palestinian Diaspora’ community about this innocent child being brutalized by the evil Israelis.

    while everyone is so focused on Al Qaeda they are once again ignoring this most dangerous foe in our midst. Many if not most have assimilated, at least superficially, into our society. Many are second generation born here but scratch the surface and they bleed pure anti-American.

    But, the libtards think because they are assimilated, speak English and many are not particularly devout Muslims, they represent ‘real’ Muslims, the so called mythical moderate Muslim. Granted, none (either the Palestinians or the libtards) would want to live under Muslim rule and Sharia, as it would mean giving up all they take advantage of in this country, but they support the Islamization of our country. We bow to their demands, they demand more, and the liberals think this proves we are enlightened, evolved and simply an overall improvement on the ideals of our Founding Fathers.

    Mark my words, this group is the most dangerous in this country. Their hatred of us is every inch as deep as Al Qaeda TB or any other group. Being born here to american born parents means nothing. By the time the children are two, they know the ‘nursery rhyme’, “My heart, my blood, my soul for Palestine!”

    The problem is, saying things like this makes one sound like an ignorant, biased rasict because of the ignorant, biased racists.

    Personally, I don’t give a crap about Israel. We need them because they are our only ally and most sane player in the region. But that is kind of like calling them the tallest midget. But, better a tall midget on our side over no one at all. Rather than cry foul over the treatment of this ‘American’, we should be thanking them and taking notes.

    This is right out of the lefts playbook. Screech like you’ve been raped to get attention. Does not matter if its true.

    Sad the kid was murdered. It was probably done by people he knew to make it look like the evil Israelis did it. That he has American ties is all the better to get Obama to pick up the phone and “school” Bibi.

  5. Medic09 says:

    Jonn’s comparison and complaint is sad and all too obviously on target. Let’s add another, equally mysterious one:

    One of the Jewish teenagers murdered and laid to rest last week in Israel was an American citizen. His name was Naftali Frenkel. Anyone care to guess how long it took the US State Dept. to show an interest? And when Ms. Psaki finally did have something to say, she didn’t even know the boy’s name. Why the disparity?

    Then again, a govt that abandons its ambassador in Libya under fire can’t really be understood.

    Our border patrol legally shoots kids dumb enough to throw rocks at them. Now Obummer is upset that kid got lumps instead of a bullet?

    Classic Obummer.

    • Roh-Dog says:

      Tariq’s father is on the news stating his son didn’t know how to throw rocks or how to run away… I totally believe him (sarc).

      IMHO the kid is damn lucky idiot.

      Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.

    Well, the good news is that when Tariq Whatever returns to school in Florida, he’ll have a helluva lot to write in his “What a Did During my Summer Vacation” paper. I’m wondering when Harvard will offer him a full-ride scholarship, regardless of his grades or SAT scores.

  8. Sparks says:

    While I am glad the State Department had a voice about a U.S. citizen in Israel and the circumstances of his arrest an treatment, apparently, Mexico is a black into which American citizens can fall and the State Department is silent, voiceless. Why, because we don’t want to upset the Mexican Government. We need cheap vegetables and fruit more than the proper treatment of our citizens. Plus we don’t want to hamper their goal of shoving as many of their and Central America’s unwanted over the border. SOBS! Mexico AND Obama and Company. This aggravates me so much it makes my ass want to chew tobacco. (As my grandfather would say when he was exasperated by something.)

    He’d a fared a whole lot worse if he had shot his slingshot and hit a Chicago cop.

  10. 2/17 Air Cav says:

    He was a guest of Israel and he was charged with committing crimes while a guest there. In some states in the US, the same behavior merits free schooling and in-state tution rates for college, not to mention free food, medical care, and a driver’s license.
