'Ceasefire' Pin

'Ceasefire' Pin Symbol Is the Bloody Hand of a Lynched Jew Torn Limb from Limb and Cannibalized

“The ‘ceasefire’ pins worn by celebs at the Oscars are a symbol of Palestinian terrorism straight out of a terror event in which Palestinians got hold of Jews, killed them, ripped out organs, and proudly showed off the Jewish blood on their hands to the cheering crowd,” wrote Marina Medvin on X.

More specifically, on October 12, 2000, IDF reservists Vadim Norzhich and Yosef Avrahami were lynched by a Palestinian mob while detained at the el-Bireh police station in Ramallah, after accidentally entering the Palestinian Authority (PA) controlled city.

Marking what would become the onset of the more violent Second Intifada following the collapse in Israeli-Palestinian negotiations at Camp David in July, the events of October 2000 became among the most brutal in the history of relations between the two peoples. The Ramallah lynching itself also became one of the first mass-publicized incidences of political violence in the Internet age.

The detention of the two reservists incidentally came at the same time as a funeral service of a Palestinian youth who had been killed by Israeli forces a few days earlier. Likewise, over 100 Palestinians had been killed in violent confrontations with Israeli security forces in the weeks prior.

According to accounts, rumors spread that Israeli undercover agents were being detained at the police station, prompting a crowd of over 1,000 to gather calling for their deaths. The IDF reservists were murdered by the crowd via beatings and stabbings, with one Italian news outlet later capturing the infamous photo of Aziz Salha raising his blood-soaked hands to the cheering crowd.

The reservists’ bodies were then thrown out the window, mutilated, and set on fire. The bodies were then dragged to Al-Manara Square in the city center. PA security forces, aware of the seriousness, attempted to confiscate the film showing the events. (GR / VFI News)
