Teenage Palestinian murderers of Tuvia Yanai Weisman get long prison sentences

Teenage Palestinian murderers of Tuvia Yanai Weisman get long prison sentences

Remember this every time anti-Israel activists demand Israel not imprison Palestinian “children”

On February 18, 2016, Tuvia Yanai Weissman, 21, was stabbed to death in a supermarket while he was shopping with his wife and baby daughter.

I wrote about it in a post the next day, It’s just a wedding video.

The Palestinian attackers were 14 years old. They were shot by a private citizen during the assault. One died and the other is an Israeli hospital where he will receive as complete medical treatment as the person he stabbed.

These stabbing attacks by Palestinian minors, of which there have been many, don’t happen in a vacuum. There is widespread incitement both officially from the Palestinian Authority and Hamas, and also in social media….

Tuvia Yanai Weissman was buried this morning in Israel:

At the funeral on Friday, Weissman’s father Dana eulogized his son, saying, “you loved your daughter Neta so much. You took her to see the flowers in the Negev a day before you were murdered. No hatred and no enemy will end that (love).”

His mother Orli said, “I release you to God, but I don’t know if I’ll be able to release the love. You were very independent and went on your path.”

Weissman’s bereaved widow Yael said, “you were always full of endless giving, if you hadn’t run there (to stop the terrorists) you wouldn’t be the Yanai that I know and fell in love with. If only you could have been with Neta more, how many dreams we had.”

“Before we entered the supermarket I asked you when we will be a normal family and you said it won’t be long,” she said, in a reference to his ongoing intense army service.

“My beloved, who would believe that I would write to you while you are no longer with me, in the short time we had on the weekends you made sure to take care of everything. You heard that something happened and you ran and I waited for you.”

“We managed so much in two years of marriage even though we weren’t together a lot.”

“Yanai you are a true hero of all the nation of Israel, you knew that you had no weapon and nevertheless you ran. I want to thank you, I merited to learn from a talented and special man. Thank you for our Neta,” concluded Yael.

I included their wedding video:

It hit me hard when I saw it….

There’s something about a wedding image of a young person just murdered that gets to me, as it did when it was just a photo.

Last week, the killers were sentenced to long prison sentences. The Times of Israel reports:

Two Palestinian teenage terrorists who stabbed to death off-duty soldier Tuvia Yanai Weissman and seriously wounded another Israeli man in 2016 were sentenced to 35 and 32 years in prison on Wednesday, the army said.

A third terrorist involved in the plot was sentenced late last year to 35 years in prison and ordered to pay a NIS 1.25 million ($330,000) fine.

The military prosecution requested life sentences for all three, but that was denied by the court, which noted that the terrorists were minors at the time of the attack. Prosecutors are expected to appeal the ruling and again request life sentences.

I remember back to the early, dark days of the Intertubes, when The Sandmonkey posted a subtitled video of Palestinian children’s TV. He said something like “For those of you who don’t think the Palestinians teach their children to kill…”

His main audience was egyptians. some of whom stoutly maintained that such things did not happen.

MEMRI has translated and published a lot of Palestinian children’s TV. Those shows were not flukes.

Their families will be taken care of (unlike their victim’s). The next time an Intifada is decreed, their release will be demanded. The next time a leftist government is in place, they will be released along with many others as a show of good faith.

For terrorists, a long prison sentence is more of a hypothetical than an actual sentence.

    The terrorists know their families will be taken care of, while they themselves will have free housing, food and medical. AND, all the while their adversaries will be in Gaza laughing and chuckling at how the young Jews endured their execution. That’s what it was, an execution for being Jewish.

    After the terrorists are convicted through a legal process, just send them home – why bother to incarcerate them? Will these terrorists learn anything from their incarceration? Why bother to interrogate them, can their knowledge be trusted? Load the killers on a troop transport and off-load them at 15,000 feet onto the their own home – that should catch the general Palestinian public’s attention. They want to be proud of their terrorist killers, so ‘give them’ terrorist killers.

      Return to them a corpse.

      “The terrorists know their families will be taken care of”

      My advice to all Jews is to make sure their families are taken care, make that public policy, where the whole family becomes martyrs in short order.

      These terrorists need to know that their actions will lead to swift retribution.

      There should not be any concern about collateral damage, such damage should result in a 100,000 to one kill ratio.

      Take the damn gloves off.

I don’t believe in long prison sentences. I believe in “an eye for an eye”.

Fairer. Cheaper.

    One eye does not serve as a deterrent, or do anything to lower the overall risk, whereas a 100,000 to one kill ratio does lower the risk.

if these kidkillers must be jaled –
the jail must be an isolation one, no visitors, no tv,
no books, no rehab, no exercise – just boredom.
let them experience the grave.

    JusticeDelivered in reply to 4th armored div. | July 14, 2019 at 4:38 pm

    Really, it is better to just put them and their families down. Palestinians are teaching their kids this shit, teachers should suffer the same fate.

Commit adult crime, the age of. the perps is irrelevant. Line them up against the nearest wall. Fire a .22 mini mag to the base of the skull. If you shed blood, yours should also be shed.

The Israeli government will cheapen Tuvia Yanai Weissman’s life by releasing these terrorists in exchange for something at some point in the future. It doesn’t matter at what age a person commits murder. What matters is that the person has taken a life. That is the crime. The punishment must fit that, and not the age of the life-taker. Hang the killers.

Only one Fitting Punishment.. Decapitation with a dull blade follow by the head being returned to the family but the body buried in a barrel of pig fat then dumped in the ocean! Where their is no chance of recovery….

Israel will release them in a few years as part of an exchange.

We all know this, right? The Palestinians certainly do.

Long prison sentences are good. Long ropes are better.

Shira’s Answer:
Shira Ish-Ran, the Israeli woman who was severely wounded and lost her baby boy in a Palestinian shooting attack, displayed defiance and strength in the face of her tragic loss, vowing on Thursday to have “many more babies” in response to losing her baby to Palestinian terrorism.
Shira Ish-Ran was quoted: “I will show them. I will bring many more babies into this world. Am Yisrael chai,”

The baby was named Amiad Yisrael (my nation forever, Israel) before being buried in Jerusalem’s Mount of Olives cemetery.

Every Jewish women of child bearing around the world should have at least one more baby than planned and name the boy Ami Yisrael, and a girl Bat-Ami Yisraella in memory of her baby. Let these savages who kill Jews in the womb be answered with millions of new Jewish babies, all of who standing for “My nation forever, Israel.” Many Haredim women have 17-21 Children in Jerusalem.

to see the photos of that young couple and their child, the happiness, the hope in their eyes and to realize that some savage deliberately snuffed that out and then to read that some court/tribunal allowed the killers to live is unconscionable to me–we’ve seen similar events here, just as sickening–the violent death or injury of innocents to gratify some punk’s ego/pseudo-agenda/fifteen-minutes-of-fame cravings

when the leftists/antifa/etc. start seriously injuring/killing innocents and those who oppose their facist agenda, the cleansing of america will begin in earnest
