Netanyahu to Kerry: Israel thoroughly investigating Hebron incident



JPost: “Amid an unusual public spat with a senior US senator, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke Friday with Secretary of State John Kerry and stressed that Israel was thoroughly investigating the shooting incident involving an IDF soldier in Hebron 10 days ago.

Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vermont) and 10 US congressmen sent a letter to Kerry on February 17 – long before the Hebron incident – asking him to investigate Israel over “a disturbing number of reports of possible gross violations of human rights” in the country, citing alleged extrajudicial killings of Palestinians by IDF soldiers.

leftiOpinion: The Leahy Law or Leahy amendment, passed in 1997 and enhanced in 2011,  is a U.S. human rights law that prohibits the U.S. Department of State and Department of Defense from providing military assistance to foreign military units that violate human rights. It is named after its principal sponsor, Senator Patrick Leahy Democrat, of Vermont.

Bottom line: John Kerry and Patrick Leahy are really upset that the Israeli’s are killing Palestinians that have stabbed 22 Israeli citizens to death because they were Jewish.

And they want it stopped … or else!
