Israel busted in their lies
In response to: Palestinian indicted in rape of 7-year-old Israeli girl in West Bank. The defendant worked as a janitor at the victim’s school; right-wing advocacy group says other Palestinian laborers were present during the crime.
Chaim Bleicher of the right-wing legal aid organization Honenu, who is representing the child’s family, said several Palestinian laborers were present during the rape and provided assistance to the defendant, but this was not noted in the indictment.
“This is an incredibly shocking, cruel case,” Bleicher said, allegedly involving “an act of pure hate by a group of sickos who acted against all human values because this is a Jewish girl.”
The health maintenance organization that examined a 7-year-old girl who said she was raped didn’t inform the police of her complaint.
Police began investigating only six days after she was examined at the Maccabi HMO, when her parents filed a complaint.
Maccabi declined to comment on whether it had reported the rape complaint to the municipal welfare department, which it can legally do. But the municipality denied receiving any report of the incident from Maccabi.
The girl was examined on April 10 at the Maccabi clinic in the West Bank settlement where she lives. During that visit, the mother said the girl was raped five days earlier. But the police complaint was filed only on April 16, after the parents consulted their rabbis.
The Maccabi doctor who examined the girl didn’t find unequivocal evidence of sexual assault, but she wasn’t a forensic medicine specialist.

A forensic specialist could have determined with greater certainty whether an assault took place.
Though the parents said the rape occurred on April 5, the indictment dated it merely to sometime “between February and April.” The uncertainty is because the girl said it happened around the time of a holiday, but named various holidays when asked which one.
The suspect, Mohammed Qatusa, is a maintenance man at the girl’s school. He was arrested on May 1 and indicted this week.
Even before the girl identified Qatusa as her assailant, her parents had named him as a suspect.
Police said the girl identified him “spontaneously,” but sources involved in the investigation said her parents’ behavior could have influenced her testimony.
It’s not clear why they suspected Qatusa. He was not the school’s only Palestinian employee.
Israel lying about stabbing attacks by Palestinians. An old man was trying to cross the checkpoint and they (Israeli forces) just shot him dead,” while “nobody mentioned that he had a knife or approached a soldier for any attack”.
Israeli forces have arrested a 15-year-old girl over an alleged attempt by her to stab an Israeli soldier in the West Bank checkpoint. Do they look at risk by a single little girl with a knife?
This is what a checkpoint looks like. What lone person is going to attempt to stab them?
According to the sources, the mother told police that after she learned of the rape from her daughter, she viewed footage from the school’s security cameras and accused Qatusa to the school’s staff. The father also told police he had conducted his own investigation and concluded that Qatusa was the guilty party.
The mother said her daughter also described a second sexual assault by Qatusa, in which he took her to a synagogue near the school and assaulted her in the bathroom.
But police couldn’t verify that story, and investigators questioned whether Qatusa would really have taken her to the synagogue, since the path passes by a public area that’s usually full of people.
The police examination of Qatusa’s cell phone found no pedophilia or any other evidence that might connect him to the rape.
Moreover, he provided an alibi for the original date, April 5; that alibi was confirmed by his employers and other residents of the settlement.

One source involved in the investigation said another suspect was also arrested, but released a few hours later. That suspect was a Palestinian who lives in a nearby village, was in contact with Qatusa, and worked at a different school in the settlement, near the apartment where police think the rape occurred.
No other suspects were questioned, even though police knew a third Palestinian was also working at that apartment, where Qatusa was employed to do renovations.
The sources all said they believe the girl was raped, given her behavior and her testimony. But no hard evidence has been found to connect Qatusa to the crime.
One fact that did bolster the suspicions against him was his changing story about his work. At first, he denied working at private homes. But after being confronted with evidence to the contrary, he admitted it.
Additionally, the girl said there was a picture of flowers in the room where she was raped, and a search of the apartment found a vase over the bed. Police say that bolsters her story.
But senior law enforcement officials criticized the fact that the indictment, which was filed in a military court, included the girl’s statement to a youth investigator that several men held her down during the rape, since no evidence has been found to support it.
They also criticized the police’s failure to make serious efforts to locate these other men.
Law enforcement officials have also been critical of the police’s investigative derelictions, including their failure to have the girl examined by a forensic specialist or to verify some of the claims made by witnesses.
Police are now focused on new information that ostensibly connects Qatusa to another sexual assault on the same girl, according to one source involved in the probe.
He termed this information “mediocre minus,” but said that if verified, it would greatly strengthen the case against Qatusa.
