New York, May 18:
An investigation continues in Midtown after police say a knife-wielding man was shot and killed by officers Wednesday morning at the corner of 49th Street and Eighth Avenue.
Omaha, May 20:
The knife-wielding suspect critically wounded by police trying to take him into custody at 165th and West Maple Road Friday morning has died. He was identified as 31-year-old Joshua Beebee.
Brooklyn, May 8:
A 27-year-old man was shot twice after he allegedly approached two police officers with a dagger in hand Sunday evening in Brooklyn.
Jacksonville, FL, May 14:
Jacksonville police shot a man who they said charged at them wielding both a machete-style knife as well as a dagger-like knife while threatening to cut their heads off Saturday morning near McDonald’s at East State and North Market streets downtown.
Los Angeles, May 1:
Los Angeles police shot and killed a man in Panorama City on Saturday night after he approached two officers with a knife in his hand, authorities said.
Citrus Heights, California, May 20:
A nearly seven-hour standoff ended Thursday night when police shot and killed a man barricaded inside a Citrus Heights apartment, police said.

Wausau, Wisconsin, May 1:
A Wausau police officer Saturday night shot and killed a man who was wielding a knife, according to Wausau Police Patrol Capt. Matt Barnes in a Sunday morning press conference.
Temecula, California, May 5:
Temecula police shot and killed a man who was advancing on them with a knife, the sheriff's department said Thursday.
House of Charity, Washington, April 28:
A man was killed Thursday outside the House of Charity, shot by police after approaching officers with a knife and urging them to “kill me, kill me,” witnesses said.

All of these happened in  just the past month and it is not an exhaustive list of cases where police routinely shooting people armed "only" with knives..

Now, from the Palestinian WAFA new agency, May 23:
The Detainees and Ex-Detainees Committee, said in a report published on Sunday, that 85 percent of Palestinians who were killed by Israel since the beginning of 2015; 179 Palestinians, were killed in extrajudicial field executions.

It maintained that Israeli forces executed Palestinians in ‘cold-blood’ and on the grounds of mere suspicion, maintaining that forces acted as both judges and executioners.

It said that the majority of killed Palestinians were shot from a very close range with the intention to kill.

It described Israeli politicians’ calls to kill Palestinians instead of detaining them, as a ‘war crime’, and intentional extrajudicial murders; which it affirmed, violates principles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the four Geneva Conventions, and the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court.
Time to bring international law charges against every police department in the US for shooting knife-wielding suspects.

It is International Double Standards Against Israel Day, celebrated on every day that includes a sunrise.

We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.

Elder of Ziyon - حـكـيـم صـهـيـون

This blog may be a labor of love for me, but it takes a lot of effort, time and money.
