An organized terrorist cell murdered Dvir Sorek. Intelligence takes over the hunt

After 24 fruitless hours of scouring through the Palestinian villages around Gush Etzion, the hunt for the killers of the Israeli soldier Dvir Sorek on Thursday, Aug 8, was handed over to intelligence agencies. That night, the thousands of mourners attending his funeral at his home community of Ofra, were treated to victory firework displays at neighboring Palestinian villages, while exultant masked students at Bir Zeit University near Ramallah handed out candy to passersby in celebration. The collective joy evinced by Palestinians to the murder of the young Israeli soldier, there and across social media, without a single word of condemnation, was the answer to the critics at home and abroad of the “collective punishment” meted out by Israel by roadblocks and lockdowns of suspect Palestinian districts.

The first responses of Israel’s security authorities raise questions. How come they were unable to trace the car used by the terrorists to grab their victim, stab him fatally and then drop him by the side of the road leading to Kibbutz Migdal Oz in Gush Etzion? The cameras covering the scene should have helped the Shin Bet investigators to at least identify the killers’ vehicle. The car also left clear marks on the road of a fast U-turn when they sped away. If they had torched the vehicle as Palestinian terrorists have done before, the charred remains would have been found nearby. Therefore, the attackers had either prepared a hideout for the vehicle in advance; or else they drove it to one of the places near Bethlehem which specialize in chopping up a stolen car in no more than 10 minutes. Either option would attest to the Israel soldier having fallen into the hands of a well-organized Palestinian terrorist cell that had set up the operation in detail under the radar of the Israeli Shin Bet and Palestinian security authorities in Ramallah.

The Israeli searchers lost precious time by assuming that Dvir Sorek had been kidnapped before he was murdered. They therefore focused on catching the perpetrators in the nearby villages of Beit Fajar and Beit Inun before they killed again. Because other theories were ruled out until later, they missed collecting forensic evidence when it was still fresh close by where the body was found. It had meanwhile been trampled underfoot by the troop reinforcements.

The body was discovered, furthermore, no more than 100 meters from the gate of the Kibbutz and the camera fixed overhead which covered that distance. If someone on guard duty had monitored the footage in time, Dvir Sorek’s body would have been found and the chase for the killers begun that much sooner.

    May HaShem comfort the family, friends, and other mourners. This incident only continues to prove that these wicked people need to be driven out of Israel permanently once and for all. There is plenty of money available to help them move to a different country.

        Moral equivalence between murderers and their victims, is a mental disease.

            IAF does not aim to kill a “mother and her 1-year old infant”. Your brothers and sisters, islamic savages, do the opposite. There is no comparison. In the end, the so-called “palestinians” will COLLECTIVELY pay a dear price for their COLLECTIVE savagery (note the COLLECTIVE celebrations).

            IAF bombs subhuman terrorists who purposely bring down airstrikes on mothers & babies for a cheap PR victory. There is nothing lower in this world than Fatah/Hamas/Hezbollah.

        Ottomans understood the Arab psyche, kept them quiet for 500 years. Oil and post war Europe competing for markets has empowered the cowardly nation that has always relied on terror since Islam. Israel is governed by followers of Western Ashkenazi mentality that is useless in dealing with Arabs who only understand extreme power and authority.. Israel has to learn how to handle Arabs.. Europe is afraid of that but is in decline.. Israel must cut the cancer off , sharp and clean off.

          Exact, I agree fully, the solution is to change the political system in Israel for direct democracy. The culture of these leaders comes from European, jewry, meaning submission to jew haters and jew killers.
          The people should decide the laws.

        • Aug 9, 2019 @ 18:07 at 18:07

          SmarterThanMullahs, Not just the Ottoman’s but Arab Nations Reject Palestinians & Gazan’s for Citizenship due to the Criminal Behavior they Choose in their Nations.

        • Aug 9, 2019 @ 19:01 at 19:01

          This is why in 1967, Jordan refused to allow Gazans who came after the “Six Day War”, to be Jordanian Citizens. Today some 165,000 Palestinians in Jordan cannot become citizens & No Jordan Services. In 1970, 3500-5000 Palestinians Chose to Rebel & Killed. While 20,000 Palestinians Expelled, Camps Demolished, Citizenship Revoked for Millions of West Bank Palestinians. Jordan Limits Palestinian Members of Jordan’s Parliament to less than 10%? Just in 2016, Jordan put Restrictions on Gazan Travel & Why Arab Nations won’t Allow, Admit or Permit Gazan, due to their Criminal Behavior.

        If the Jew-hating would stop their violence and murder then there would be no need for retaliation. There is one side here that has been eternally evil, murderous and filled with hate for Jews – and it is not the Jewish people.

        • Aug 10, 2019 @ 20:25 at 20:25

          You are clearly filled with hate. You are no different, psychologically and morally, than the people who hate Jews.

        Arabs/Muslims/Mohammedans kill Arabs/Muslims/Mohammedans in Lebanon, Jordan, Syria, Iraq, Fascist Iran, Yemen, Egypt, Tunisia, Algeria, Libya, Sudan….

        It’s the way of the Beast.

        One thing is for sure, Israel is relentless in bringing the Sand Na zis to Justice. They always do.

        Don’t try and draw parallels for Arab savagery, it’s pathological and was normalized with the lunatic Mohammed.

    the Koran’s text is proceeded by the three arabic letters for aleph, lamed, mem ALM. the three letters reappear at the end of the Koran and before and after each chapter. check it out. what do they mean? The Koran’s author was Jewish, the letters mean Ain Lo Mamash: “He has no truth/substance” — the Mohamad story is BS

    • Aug 9, 2019 @ 16:01 at 16:01

      yes, it’s true, Mohammed turned against you (or rather, the real jewish people turned against your prophet) and your false Messiah, Nehemiah..

  • Aug 9, 2019 @ 15:12 at 15:12

    There is no “nice” way to please the world’s gentile nations and to secure peace in Israel. It is God’s Covenant which orders Jews to destroy enemies within our borders. Deuteronomy 20:16 is explicit. The Arabs murdered our son with a very carefully executed plan. Then while we mourn, they set off celebrations with fireworks. Something is wrong with Israel accepting this picture. I’m not saying we have to be happy about destroying and driving out the Arabs where such bestial celebrations were performed in our faces. I’m saying that we should do so because our history has shown that by ignoring God’s written laws we have not earned His blessings nor the friendship of the world’s nations. Therefore prudence dictates that Jews reestablish the bond of trust with the God who demands obedience to the only Covenant which allows us to be free to live.

      So says the Lord, “The heavens are My throne, and the earth is My footstool; which is the house that you will build for Me, and which is the place of My rest?
      If the Lord will not build a house, its builders have toiled at it in vain; if the Lord will not guard a city, [its] watcher keeps his vigil in vain.
      (My son, why should you build a house and turn away from following the Omnipresent? Since He does not desire it, its workers have toiled at it in vain.
      [its] watcher keeps his vigil in vain: The watchman watches it in vain. )
      Woe to him who builds a city with blood and establishes a city with injustice
      (When the Lord accepts a person’s ways, He will cause even his enemies to make peace with him.)
      They say to those who despise Me, “The Lord has spoken, ‘You shall have peace, ‘ ” and [to] everyone who follows the view of his heart they say, “No evil shall befall you.”

      Yeshaya 66:4-5

    If Israel really wants to stop the terror, there is but 1 thing to do :
    Everything else is but hot air, PR by politicians, good for nothing…

    • Aug 9, 2019 @ 20:47 at 20:47

      So – the israeli gov decides when the terror stops…If the israeli gov. means business today, tomorrow the terror is history….
      But looks like gov. prefers producing hot air + PR – israeli citizens paying the price….
      No one cares for the settlers…

    The American Congresswoman’s trip to Palestine should include visits to the real Kahanist (Kahanist meaning ‘Jewish Extremist’/’Jewish Hitlerite’ as unequivocally nailed by the Encylopedia Judaica definition) sorespots like Hebron and a view at the American despising Hilltop Youth Settlers

    Unfortunately not all Palestinians are heroic killing Jews fighters for peace.

    Babies, for a sample, they suck the good and fulfilling hate of Jews with their milk, but they are too weak to carry knifes or guns. But, we teach them in schools about the good extermination and we channel their good hate towards the noble dream of the perfect peace without Jews, as a preparation.

    • Aug 10, 2019 @ 1:11 at 1:11

      The life of the Palestinian educators is hard.
      There are only couple hours of school, but many points to teach to the children the beauty of martyrdom.
      Without the wonderful help from UN we would have never reached the efficiency of today.
      It touches my heart to see my pupils, now adults, knifing and shooting like experts, all because of good motivation since kindergarten.
      My Allah bless the UN people, their contribution was so essential in our jihad all along these generations.

    The article above describes how the typical Palestinians see israeli Jews. Israel must figure out a way to shame these terrorists so that they will not be viewed as heroes by Palestinian Arabs. Perhaps their beards and heads should be automatically shaved once they are caught and (force) fed pork and other such products in prison and be “re-educated” in prison by Mullas that are not filled with hate towards Jews and Israel. Palestinian press and education is under control of PLO. It is not free by Western standards. So why is Israel allowing such “freedom of the press” and the Palestinian Administration to inculcate young Palestinians with hatred toward Jews and other non-Muslims, all in the misguided thinking that they should not interfere with a free press and education? It is just plain stuped on Israel’s part, and is an utter failure that results in death to Israeli citizens.

    LL… The Palestinians have been rejected by Mideast Neighbor Nations due to their inability to Get Along, Live Peacefully and Criminal Behavior. They are Not Just an Israel Problem but an Arab, Middle East and Global Problem Historical: Qater 1994 Refused Palestinians work visas. Libya 1994-95 Expelled 30,000 Palestinians, dismissed many from their jobs and confiscated their houses. Iraq 2005 15,000 forced to leave Iraq No Arab Nation Permitted Entry. .2005-2008: Syria did not allow thousands of Palestinian Arab refugees fleeing from Iraq to enter the country. 2015 Iraq Shiites forced Palestinians 19,000 out of 25,000 to leave.

    A logical and politically incorrect question.
      Bibi has no “relation” to the murder of a Jewish boy. I believe!
    Bibi only paid tens of millions to Hamas.
    Try now to prove to me that this money did not go towards organizing the murder of a Jewish boy. An even simpler question: Is Bibi not an accomplice?
