Jews Allowed to Puncture Tyres, Palestinians Not

On June 18, 2013, the Israeli Police published its report on Price Tag+ terror attacks. On the same morning, an attack took place in Abu Gosh, near Jerusalem, creating the image above. The specific events and subsequent government decisions are described in "Racism or Assimilation."
Netanyahu declined to define Price Tag as a Jewish terror Organization. Instead, it was declared a "non-authorized organization." This will be formalized by the Minister of Defense, who would be able to act against them according to the "Emergency-Hour Law." This means that detainees could be held practically indefinitely without being allowed to meet a lawyer. All their belongings could be confiscated without any proper process.
"Contempt of Terror"
A report originating in the Israeli government must be read thrice, before reading it twice more times. The only thing one can be sure is that it is boobytrapped by the world's most experienced tricksters. The abovementioned decision was not different.
Netanyahu passed the hottest potato in his large plate to the Ministry of Defense. The bottom line is that he made the army responsible for tackling Price Tag. In fact, Netanyahu approved actions of Price Tag within the Green Line since the IDF has no jurisdiction within Israel. Price Tag became a "non-authorized organization" allowed to terrorize within Israel, but forbidden in the West Bank.
Similar actions committed by Palestinians would be brutally dealt with by the Shin Beth secret police, whether they took place within the Green Line or in the West Bank. Drones would assassinate, missiles would be launched in all directions. Secret new weapons would be deployed, and a thousand new informants would be recruited if a Palestinian child would dare to spray just half a graffiti.
Clumsy and weak, Netanyahu's decision created only a temporary framework for the Ministry of Defense, which will work according to the Emergency-Hour Law until the Knesset finds a better solution.
In this reality, the Knesset held a discussion on the topic on June 26. Knesset Member Shula Mu'alem-Rafaeli from The Jewish Home, a leading party in Netanyahu's coalition, spoke about the issue. With the unbeatable style of a bigot, she claimed that defining Tag Price graffiti and tyres-puncturing as "terror" would be a "contempt on the definition of terror."
The most magnificent legislative organization in human history is about to make another Giant Leap forward and lead the moral and democratic world into a new glorious era under the astonishing leadership of Knesset Member Shula Mu'alem-Rafaeli, by adding another principle to its legal hierarchy:
· 5. Jews are allowed to puncture tyres, Palestinians are not.*
* It is a redundant principle. In fact, it is not a principle, but an implementation of principle 3. Yet, an illegitimate legal system can allow itself logic fallacies.
