Israel’s Supreme Court Rewards Another Enemy Of The State


      The decision by the Israeli Supreme Court in the matter of Mustafa Dirani (sometimes spelled Durani) has once again shown the world that Israel’s judicial system is a clear and present danger to the country.
 
Mustafa Dirani is believed to be the terrorist who captured Israeli navigator Ron Arad when he was forced to parachute into Lebanon. Dirani’s terrorists ignored Red Cross requests and international Geneva Convention rules and held Arad incommunicado for years. 
 
No one quite knows what they did with Arad, but it is generally believed his captors “sold” Arad to the Iranian Revolutionary Guards and that Arad eventually was murdered.
 
Dirani was head of security in the Amal militia of Shi’ites operating in Lebanon, and then split off to form his own Shi’ite terrorist militia, named “Believing Resistance” – this before Hizbullah became the head of the Shi’ite terrorist syndicate. 
 
In a counter-terrorism ground operation in Lebanon in 1994, Dirani was abducted by Israel and tossed into prison, to be held as a bargaining chip to obtain the release of Ron Arad or other Israeli POWs.
 
While Dirani should have been executed by Israel for his crimes, he instead lived in relative comfort in an Israeli prison. His being kept alive was of course an open invitation for other terrorists to kidnap (and murder) Israelis in order to gain Dirani’s release. Some on the  Israeli left insisted he should be released with no quid pro quo because releasing people like Dirani is the best way to show “good faith” and achieve peace.
 
In 2004, then-Prime Minister Ariel Sharon decided to release more than 400 terrorists in order to “purchase” back from Hizbullah the corpses of three Israeli POWs who had been murdered in cold blood. In addition, Hizbullah released an Israeli who had entered Lebanon illegally to buy drugs when he was kidnapped by the terrorists. Dirani was one of the terrorists released by Sharon to “buy back” the corpses and the live drug criminal.
 
Since being released, Dirani has become something of a terrorist celebrity in the Kasbah. Sharon did not even demand information about Arad’s fate before releasing Dirani, now a senior Hizbullah official.
 
Because Dirani no doubt sang like a canary while being interrogated by Israel, he later insisted he was “raped” and “tortured” in prison by a guard or intelligence officer he claims was named “George.” I have always assumed he chose the name George while reading those books about the little monkey who lives with the man in the big yellow hat. 
 
Well, Mustafa Dirani continues to try to profit from his “victimhood” at the hands of “George.”  From his terrorist abode in Lebanon, Dirani attempted to file a damages suit against Israel for the tryst he claims Curious George forced on him in prison. The “evidence” that Dirani was abused by “George” is that Dirani says so. The Tel Aviv district court where the suit was filed tossed it into the garbage.
 
But then in stepped the Israeli Supreme Court. By a two to one vote, a Supreme Court panel has just overridden the Tel Aviv Court and has ordered that Dirani be allowed to sue the state of Israel for “damages” and “compensation.”
 
The decision was written by retiring Supreme Court justice Ayala Procaccia – the same judge who tossed 14-year-old religious girls into prison without a trial because they participated in a right-wing protest demonstration. 
 
Procaccia, who makes no attempt to hide her leftist agenda, also wrote the recent Supreme Court decision which ruled that telling the truth is no defense at all against being charged under Israel’s Soviet-style law for “insulting a public servant.” She was joined in the Dirani ruling by Arab Supreme Court justice Salim Jubran. 
 
So the terrorist and international criminal Dirani has been invited by the Israeli Supreme Court to sue the government of Israel in an Israeli court from his Hizbullah terrorist hideaway for his claimed “victimhood” at the hands of Israeli prison authorities. 
 
The duo of Procaccia and Jubran issued another ruling a few days ago ordering the Beersheba municipality to take an old, long-abandoned building that had once served as a mosque before 1948 and renovate it at municipality expense in order to convert it into a museum of Islamic culture.
 
Just which law was it that gave the Supreme Court justices the right to order this?  No law at all, just “judicial activism.”
