Committee Recommends Another Leftist, Anti-Settlements AG

Jewish Home MK Orit struk says Nitzan is known for his hostility to Jewish life in Judea and Samaria.
Deputy AG Shai Nitzan is the nominee to decide, as Israel's next AG, the life and death issues of Jews in Judea, Samaria and East Jerusalem. It is difficult to come up with a worse enemy of the settlement movement than this man. Will the Netanyahu Government stand up to the largely Ashkenazi Leftists who recommended him?

First, there was the subversion of the process. The search committee whose job it is to recommend the next State Attorney (roughly the equivalent of the American Attorney General), normally sends up a list of two or three candidates for the government to select from. When they decided to choose just one name, they basically made the appointment themselves, daring Prime Minister Netanyahu and anyone objecting to the nominee to openly challenge them.

Minster of the Judiciary Tzipi Livni was ecstatic over the committee’s singular selection: Deputy Attorney General Shai Nitzan.

As Jewish Home MK Orit struk put it, Nitzan is known for his hostility to Jewish life in Judea and Samaria, and should the Netanyahu government approve his nomination its right wing members would have no one to blame but themselves when he browbeats them into following a distinctly anti-settlement policy.

So, if you’ve been following the historical process by which the largely Ashkenazi, largely left-wing judicial establishment has been taking over the running of the country from its elected officials and, by extension, from the ultimate sovereign, the voter – this one should be a biggie in your book. as big as the high court’s campaign to force public officials who have been charged with crimes—accused, mind you, not convicted—to resign their elected posts.

It’s a vital process for the secular Ashkenazi minority, whose numbers are dwindling rapidly. Israel’s ruling class raises poodles, not children, and so an electoral win is already out of their reach. What’s left is the repression of the plebeian voter’s democratic rights.

(The remedy for this ongoing assault on democracy is for you, dear American reader, to contact your local Nefesh B’Nefesh representative and start the process of coming to the aid of your country. A million American Jews, secure in their inalienable rights and well versed in two wondrous document—the Torah and the U.S. Constitution—could definitely change things over here.)

Shai Nitzan is a graduate of the B’nei Akiva Netiv Meir yeshiva in Jerusalem. But his National-religious education did not stop him from acting as an enemy of the Jewish residents in Judea and Samaria. In his role as the official in charge of “special assignments” at the AG office, he was the enforcer of the “orders of removal” policy: the government would pick a settlement activist and order him off the Judea and Samaria territory. This means he would not be able to be with his wife and children—ever. If you were horrified by the videos that were circulating a few months ago, of a settler being tased repeatedly by police at his home—without offering any resistance—that vile incident goes back to a Shai Nitzan enforcement.

His office specialized in picking the most vocal and articulate settlers for “removal” punishment. Essentially, these orders, like the other anti-democratic policy of “administrative detention,” punish a citizen not for what he or she have done, but for what a civil servant in the Ministry of the Judiciary, or an attorney working for the Occupation Administration thing he WILL do sometime in the future.

For years folks on the right were convinced that these freedom-crushing orders were the brainchild of the Jewish Dept. of the GSS, Israel’s internal police. They were mostly wrong, it turns out. It was Shai Nitzan.

MK Struk is absolutely correct in dubbing the nominee an enemy of Jewish life in Judea and Samaria, and we should expect the enhancement of the reign of terror the secular Ashkenazi Left perpetrates against the settlers. Indeed, if the Jewish Home faction in government and the right wing ministers don’t stand up on their hind legs and prevent this atrocity, it would be a sign of bad things to come.

Here’s a June, 2011 video following the arrest of Rav Lior and the son of Rav Ovadia Yosef, where then MK Yaakov Katz (Ketzale) declares that some day Shai Nitzan would be tried for his relentless persecution of Jewish Torah scholars and Judea and Samaria Jews in general.
