Eyewitnesses: Settler stabbed Palestinian to death as Israeli forces looked on – +972 Magazine

“One of the older settlers — who was wearing a black shirt, military trousers, and a hat — approached and threw stones at us. He then swung a knife and tried to stab me. I pushed him and then he pounced and stabbed Ali near his heart. The police and army were just a few meters away from us, but they did not do a thing to the stabber.”

“The settlers were scared at first, but when the army and police arrived, they were reassured,” said Amjad, another one of Harb’s relatives who witnessed the incident. “The stabber did not talk to us, he simply began attacking and then ran away with the knife.”

As Harb collapsed and began bleeding on the ground, more relatives rushed to help him. According to Zaid, a settler aimed a weapon at one of the men who tried to help, which delayed the evacuation. After a few minutes, Harb was taken by foot to a private vehicle that transported him to a hospital in the nearby Palestinian city of Salfit, where doctors pronounced him dead.

Zaid and Amjad said that prior to the stabbing there was no violence by the Palestinians toward the settlers.

While the police initially said that they could not identify the attacker, eyewitnesses presented Local Call with a photo from the stabbing that included an image of the attacker. The image showed an adult male who came to the area with the group of 10-15 teenagers and a number of other adults. On Wednesday afternoon, Israeli police arrested a Jewish man on suspicion of being involved in the killing after he arrived at the Ariel police station on his own initiative.

Collar de diamantes y perlas

Alguien me preguntó, hace poco, el motivo por el que diariamente, sin molestar, saludo con tanto amor y emoción a mis familiares más cercanos. Sonreí. Amablemente, respondí que los miembros de una familia son como las cuentas de un collar de diamantes y perlas, las cuales, por sí solas, poseen belleza y valor. Son genuinas e irrepetibles. Se les ama y se les protege como el más querido de los tesoros. Contrariamente a los argumentos de innumerables personas en el sentido de que a la familia no se le escoge, creo y pienso -y así lo siento- que desde antes de tener la dicha de nacer, Dios me dio oportunidad de elegir, para mi aventura terrena, las almas más bellas de la creación. ¿Cómo podría, entonces, despreciar y olvidar a los integrantes de mi familia cercana? Cada uno tiene…

Protest in Malawi over Chinese video showing children saying anti-Black racial slur — Radio Free Asia

Protest in Malawi over Chinese video showing children saying anti-Black racial slur A screenshot discussing Chinese national Lu Ke, who was arrested by Zambian authorities after filming a video in which children from a Malawi village said “I am a black ghost. I have a low IQ” to camera.

Civic groups in Lilongwe, Malawi, marched in protest over the actions of Chinese national Lu Ke, who was arrested by Zambian authorities after filming a racist video involving local children, calling for him to be tried in the country rather than sent back to China, the Nyasa Times reported on Wednesday.

Protesters from the University of Malawi Child Rights Legal Clinic and other civil society organizations also called for compensation and psychological support for the children exploited by Lu and made to say racist things about themselves in Chinese, the paper said.

The Maravi Post cited clinic supervisor Garton Kamchedzera as saying that Lu’s treatment of the children was in breach of the Malawian constitution.

The group said it would also deliver a petition to the Chinese embassy.

The paper said Lu had been “using violence to force the children say the phrases he wanted.”

Lu fled the country after being outed by BBC journalist Runako Celina as the maker of a video in which children from Lilongwe’s Njerwa village said “I am a black ghost. I have a low IQ” to camera. The phrase “black ghost” is considered the Chinese equivalent of the N-word.

Lu’s video was far from being a one-off. Celina’s documentary also uncovered a lucrative industry in short videos featuring Africans.

“There’s something inherently sinister in swanning into a village somewhere in Africa, tossing a few coins at people less privileged than you and being able to instruct them to do whatever you want,” Celina wrote in an article on the BBC website after the documentary aired.

“If the price (or pay off) is high enough, or the sense of humor crude enough the possibilities are endless.”

“It’s this exact boundless freedom, plus a deeply ingrained racist ideology that has made an online Chinese industry I’ve spent the last year investigating possible,” she wrote.
