     We warn you some of the pictures are graphic.
    A 15-year-old Florida high school student  was beaten and jailed by Israeli police in what his mother called an "attempted murder."
    Tariq Abu Khdeir was on summer holiday with his parents and sisters in Jerusalem.
     Video clips posted online show three Israeli police officers in riot gear repeatedly beating a young Palestinian and dragging him away to arrest him.
    "I was infuriated, I was horrified. He's my son, you know. You never want to see your son in pain, and especially, you know, in that kind of pain."
Tariq's 16 year old  cousin  was murdered in what is widely believed to have been a revenge attack for the recent kidnapping and murder of three Jewish teens.
     Police are holding Tariq in custody, saying he was in a group of masked youths who attacked police.
