MK Ben-Ari: Outgoing Court Chief Beinisch Destroyed Public Trust in the Justice System

Wednesday, February 29th, 2012

MK Michael Be-Ari (National Union) certainly makes the top five list of Knesset straight shooters, which is why he did not hesitate Tuesday to crash the wall of politeness set up by the powers that be on the day Supreme Court President Dorit Beinisch left office.

Ben-Ari told Kippa that he was delighted Beinisch was leaving, after five and a half years, because she “destroyed public trust in the justice system. Under her gavel, the court became the possession of Balad [The left-wing, Arab-dominated 'Democratic National Alliance' that has 3 seats in the Knesset].”

According to Ben-Ari, Beinisch “instituted discriminatory and racist policies against Jews. Illegal construction by Arabs are kosher, but when Jews built a hut in an outpost,  Beinisch got up in the middle of the night in her pajamas to order its destruction.”

“We will not forget nor forgive Beinisch and her fellow justices their abuse of the uprooted settlers of Gush Katif. Amazingly, the same judges who freed rapists, drug dealers, and Arab rioters, saying that detention must only be used in exceptional cases, had no problem throwing into prisons for long terms boys and girls without criminal records, whose only sin was that they protested against the deportation.”

Ben-Ari’s colleague at the National Union faction MK Ya’akov (Ketzale) Katz also expressed joy at Beinisch’s retirement. He accused Beinisch of appropriating an authority she did not rightfully possess, taking liberties with the management of the state, revoking key legislation, and taking the law into her own hands.

“Who gave her permission?” Katz asked at the Jerusalem Conference Tuesday. “She was never elected; the High Court is not allowed to annul laws enacted by the representatives of the people.”

MK Tibi Praises Palestinian ‘Martyrs’

Thursday, January 19th, 2012

Raam-Taal MK Ahmad Tibi, remarking at a Palestinian Authority event commemorating Palestinian ‘martyrs,’ said last week that “the martyr is the symbol of the homeland.”

The NGO Palestinian Media Watch obtained and released the video, in which the Member of Knesset is also heard saying that “there is nothing more praiseworthy than those who die for the homeland.”

When questioned about his remarks, Tibi brushed off concerns as “Israeli ignorance.”

National Union MK Michael Ben-Ari, after being briefed on the matter, wrote a letter to Attorney-General Yehuda Weinstein, imploring him to prosecute Tibi.

“Your office has not hesitated to prosecute right-wing activists for less severe speeches,” Ben-Ari wrote. “The time has come to stop Tibi’s party.”
