The first time I recall hearing about Niso Shacham was at Kfar Maimom when, with as much vulgarity as you can imagine, he gave orders to his policemen to use excessive violence against the unarmed civilians protesting against the evil order to expel all the Jews from Gush Katif.
Seven years later, almost to the day, Niso Shacham has been given leave from the police due to the investigation against him.
Perhaps it should have been obvious to those above him that someone who could speak so disgustingly, so sexually violent, that he may also be personally acting out against others in the same manner as he was speaking and telling his subordinates to act. Who else knew about him should also be investigated.
According to the reports, Shacham had possibly been harassing and assaulting policewomen under his command, including “illicit relations” – it not clear to me if that means consensual or not, but since they were under his command, that’s already a problem.
Furthermore, another of his subordinates was allegedly involved in covering up the complaints.
Since Gush Katif, we’ve been hearing ‘Yesh Din v’Yesh Dayan’, as one official after another, connected to the Expulsion has been taken down for some illegal or immoral act or another.
Here at the Muqata we pointed something out a long time ago.
It’s no accident that these people are all getting caught doing dirty deeds or not acting in a manner befitting their position.
The fact that they had no moral problem kicking out thousands of Jews from their homes already told us they had no morals. What we’re just seeing now is them getting caught in other areas which doesn’t happen to involve Settlers.
Yesh Din v’Yesh Dayan – there is Judgement and there is a Judge, but it’s their own fault.
