Human rights advocates reacted angrily Sunday to a leaked report suggesting that no Israeli soldiers are likely to be charged in connection with the fatal detention of an elderly Palestinian-American man by occupation forces in a West Bank town earlier this month.\r\n\r\n\u0022Yet another example of why Israel cannot be trusted to investigate its own violations.\u0022\r\n\r\n\u0022This is a policy: Israel does not prosecute those responsible for harming Palestinians, thus making their lives miserable,\u0022 the Israeli human rights group B\u0026#039;Tselem tweeted.\r\n\r\nThe Washington Post, citing a Hebrew-language report on the Israeli news site Ynet, said Sunday that a leaked summary of an Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) probe into the death of Omar Assad confirmed that the 78-year-old former Milwaukee grocer was dragged from his vehicle, blindfolded, gagged, and handcuffed before falling silent while being detained at a construction site in Jiljilya on January 12.\r\n\r\nThe report summary said that IDF soldiers did not provide medical assistance to Assad, despite the presence of an army medic.\r\n\r\nAssad suffered from heart problems. Witnesses said that by the time the Israeli troops left Jiljilya after detaining him for an hour, his face was ashen blue from a lack of oxygen. Islam Abu Zaher, a physician who tried to resuscitate Assad almost immediately after the troops left, said he died from an apparent heart attack.\r\n\r\nThe report suggested that none of the IDF soldiers involved \u0022would be indicted, nor have they been suspended.\u0022\u0026nbsp;\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nAn IDF spokesperson, Lt. Col. Amnon Shefler, said last week that troops apprehended Assad \u0022after he resisted a check, a routine check, where he was questioned. And because of his lack of cooperation and his behavior, that is why they stopped him.\u0022\r\n\r\nThe IDF said Sunday that \u0022it should be clarified that no decisions have yet been made regarding the investigation case.\u0022\r\n\r\nB\u0026#039;Tselem tweeted, \u0022Maybe this time, when it comes to its citizen, the United States for a change will do something in response to the crimes committed by its good friend.\u0022\r\n\r\nPalestinian-American writer and activist Susan Abulhawa said Sunday that \u0022Omar Assad was an American citizen. We need the Department of Justice to convene a grand jury to indict and extradite his killers, because no non-Jew can get justice in Israel.\u0022\r\n\r\nThe Post says the U.S. State Department has asked Israel to conduct a \u0022thorough investigation\u0022 of Assad\u0026#039;s death. \r\n\r\nAfter Rachel Corrie, an American activist volunteering with the International Solidarity Movement, was crushed to death by an IDF armored bulldozer while defending Palestinian homes in occupied Gaza in 2003, Dan Shapiro, the U.S. ambassador at the time, expressed his dissatisfaction with Israel\u0026#039;s investigation of the incident. Attempts by Corrie\u0026#039;s family to hold Israel accountable for the woman\u0026#039;s death ultimately proved futile.
