New Details Released About 2000 Ramallah Lynching
As though what we already knew wasn't gruesome enough:
The Yediot Aharonot newspaper revealed Tuesday new details of the brutal murders of reservists Yossi Avrahami and Vadim Nurzhitz (z"l). The soldiers were lynched in Ramallah in October 2000.
The soldiers lost their way to their base on October 12, 2000, ending up in the Palestinian Authority (PA) controlled city of Ramallah by mistake. PA police forces took the two into custody.
Word reached local PA residents that undercover Israeli agents were being held in the building; some 1000 rioters reportedly gathered outside. The IDF declined to take action to rescue the soldiers; they were eventually stormed by the rioters.
One PA terrorist, Aziz Salha, got to the soldiers first, where he brutally murdered them - stabbing, beating, and dismembering them along with other rioters. He famously then stuck his bloodstained hands out of the window of the room where the two were held, eliciting cheers from the crowd.
The newly revealed details describe how the soldiers were beaten, stabbed, and strangled while in Palestinian Authority Police custody.
What followed was an orgy of savagery. The lifeless bodies of the soldiers were thrown out the window, where the mob below tore the bodies apart and ate the organs:
This is what separates the civilized man and the savage man. The civilized man abhors such barbarism; savages revel in it.
