Bereaved Mother at Knesset NGO Law Debate: ‘Foreign Countries Are Funding Terror’

Thursday, June 16th, 2016

Devorah Gonen, whose son Danny was murdered by a terrorist while he was hiking near Dolev in Judea and Samaria, told the Knesset Constitution, Law and Justice Committee on Wednesday that the attorneys for her son’s killer were funded by foreign countries. “These funds encourage murder,” she said. “The terrorist knew he would be defended [in court] and that his family would receive funding. The terrorist is still alive, and his family will get a generous support, and I am left with the ‘privilege’ of being a bereaved mother. Foreign countries are funding terror. You must take the consequences of the foreign funding into account.”

The Committee debated a bill requiring NGOs that receive more than 50% of their funding from foreign governments to declare this fact in every publication and at meetings with public officials. The government-sponsored bill had been returned to the committee for hearings and amendments after passing a first reading in the plenum.

During the meeting, MK Yael German (Yesh Atid) argued that an NGO may receive small donations from a number of countries and one large donation from one country, so the legislation “would not help us know how the donations are distributed.”

MK Zouheir Bahloul (Zionist Camp) told the bereaved Gonen: “I sympathize with your feelings and feel the pain of the tragedy you experienced. However, the State of Israel receives billions from foreign countries, and it uses these funds to wage wars which kill people.”

MK Tamar Zandberg (Meretz) added that “government funds are transferred to NGOs for the purpose of building [Jewish] outposts from which terrorist operations emanate. This money is not transparent, and it is kept confidential in the Registrar of Non-Profit Organizations.”

Committee Chairman MK Nissan Slomiansky (HaBayit HaYehudi) said representatives from foreign embassies in Israel had asked to participate in the meeting, but he requested that they take part in next week’s debate instead. However, a representative from the Dutch embassy was allowed to audit the meeting nevertheless.

3 Terrorists Killed in IDF Shootout at Demolition of Gonen Murderer’s Home

Monday, November 16th, 2015

Three Arab terrorists were killed in Qalandiya, north of Jerusalem early Monday morning in a shootout with IDF soldiers at the demolition of the home of a convicted murderer.

IDF soldiers came under fire from the trio while demolishing the home of Muhammad Abu Shaheen, the terrorist who last June shot and killed hiker Danny Gonen.

Hundreds of Arabs also attacked the force at the same time with firebombs, IEDs (improvised explosive devices) and rocks, according to an IDF spokesperson. Israeli forces used riot dispersal means to disperse the mob.

During the demolition, the three Arab terrorists opened fire at the IDF soldiers, who returned fire in response to the threat. They confirmed three hits, which resulted in the three deaths.

Gonen, 25, was murdered near the Jewish community of Dolev when he stopped after visiting the Ein Buvin spring, in order to give the terrorist directions.

Our Tactless President is Right for a Change

Monday, June 29th, 2015

There is no doubt that since taking the office of president, Ruby Rivlin has made some strange remarks and put forward some unexpected positions. He’s rushed in to lopsidedly criticize Jews and at times even seems to take some leftwing positions.

Of course, it’s easy to write off Rivlin’s various statements and blame them on the water in the presidential palace, or perhaps the spirit of Shimon Peres (still alive, of course) haunting the presidential halls.

Rivlin’s insensitive and tactless question last week to the Gonen family, who were mourning the loss of Danny, murdered by an Arab terrorist during a hike near Dolev, deserves a response, because as tactless as it was, the underlying question raises a valid point.

Rivlin asked the family, why wasn’t Danny hiking with a gun?

The family was very upset with the question and Danny’s mother refused to take a followup call from Rivlin, feeling the president blamed her son for getting killed and hiking in an areas where perhaps he should have been armed, as opposed to the Arab terrorist who murdered him.

The truth is, no one should have to carry a gun with them while hiking in Israel. The Land of Israel should be secure for its citizens, and every Arab terrorist should be afraid to even think about raising his hand against a Jew.

But that’s not the reality we live in.

I don’t know if Danny owned a gun. But I do know that most citizens of Israel don’t and can’t. The government won’t allow them to have one.

Rivlin’s question was right, but he addressed it to the wrong person.

Why doesn’t the state grant more gun licenses? Certainly, at least to those who fulfilled their IDF service.

Citizens have a basic right to self-defense, and relying on the police and the army must not be the sole solution. Citizens need to be able to defend themselves, by themselves.

President Rivlin needs to readdress his question to the Minister of Internal Security, “Why is it nearly impossible for the average citizen to get a gun license?”

And then he should ask why are the police so quick to take a citizen’s gun away if they had to use it in self-defense, even if just shooting in the air?

Rivlin’s question was tactless and insensitive because he addressed it to the wrong party.

But his question was right, because President Rivlin at least understands that every Jew should be armed.
