While in the United Nations headquarters for his father’s speech, Yair Netanyahu retweeted a post on X, which defended the Jewish terrorist convicted of murdering three members of the Dawabshe family by firebombing their home in the Palestinian village of Duma in 2015.
“It’s so very simple. A principle that differentiates between monsters and humans. You don’t put a human being in prison based on a confession obtained through torture. What’s so complicated?” the post reads, referencing the enhanced interrogation that Amiram Ben Uliel endured before he confessed to the crime.
Ben Uliel is believed to be one of the first Israeli Jews to undergo torture at the hands of the Shin Bet interrogators, though the same tactics are widely believed to have been long used against Palestinians.
In the original tweet, the pro-Netanyahu X also cast doubt on Ben Uliel’s guilt, seeming to dismiss his recollection of accurate details from the firebombing that the prosecutors had not been aware of until his confession.
“After two minutes of torture you too would sing whatever they’ve ask you to,” the user who goes by Tsahi writes in the post shared by the prime minister’s son.
