On 7th October 2015 an illegal Israeli settler harassed then 17 or 18 y/o schoolgirl Shourouk Dweiyat in Palestine’s occupied East Jerusalem, insulting her and then trying to grab her hijab scarf.
As Dweiyat pushed him away after he had taken her scarf, the 35 y/o illegal settler took his gun and shot her four times in the her upper body.
Immediately Israeli occupation declared that the illegal Israeli settler was a ‘victim’ of a ‘stabbing attempt’ and was supposedly ‘lightly injured’ in ‘neck’ while Dweiyat was declared to be ‘a terrorist’.
An an eye-witness who contradicted it publicly was told to ‘shut up’ by Israeli occupation police officer; several other eye-witnesses supported the claim that she was unarmed and that the illegal Israeli settler was the real culprit.
Today Israeli occupation court sentenced Shorouk Dweyat – whose name is also written as Shoroq Dwiet and Shurouq Dwayyat in English – to 16 years in prison and to pay a fine of 20 929 $.
This is a perfect example of the nature of ‘justice’ as handed out by Israel: Whether a person is guilty or not, whether they are the perpetrator or the victim is not based on facts, not based on the available evidence but on the ethnic-religious label they carry in the eyes of Israel’s regime.
This Jim Crow sentence won’t be reported by the ‘Western’ media – they wouldn’t report it even normally and now they are also busy amplifying Israeli regime’s angry screams about ‘injustice’ against the United Nations and the ‘shameful’ countries who won’t support illegal colony building on occupied land.
The ‘Western’ media is the most important of Israel’s occupation forces’ brigades.
