Bereaved MK Lashes Out at Finance Ministry Over Fire Crisis

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2016

by Andrew Friedman Deputy Knesset Speaker MK Nava Boker (Likud), whose husband Lior Boker died in the Carmel forest fire of December, 2010, criticized the Finance Ministry on Wednesday saying proper buffer lines between natural brush and populated areas could have prevented both bodily injuries and property damage in the current round of fires.

“The Finance Ministry has been withholding monies that were earmarked for creating a buffer zones between forests and towns. These could have prevented these fires from harming people,” said Boker, who also serves as chair of the Knesset Subcommittee for Fire and Rescue Services.

Boker also pointed out the date of the current crisis, just a week before the sixth anniversary of the Carmel Forest fire.

Forty-four people died in that blaze, 74 were wounded and dozens of structures were damaged.

“It is frightening that the failures of that incident were not studied and that no conclusions were drawn. Did our loved ones die in vain?” Boker asked.

Boker said she would call for an emergency session of the subcommittee she heads in order to get answers from officials charged with drawing conclusions (from the current fires). She also said she would demand the Finance Ministry release funds that were collected from the Jewish National Fund (JNF) for the purpose (of establishing buffer zones).

“We, the bereaved families from the Carmel fire, demand an end to these types of failures. [We must] protect, once and for all, the lives of the citizens of the State of Israel,” said Boker.

In addition to the existing fires, a new blaze broke out Wednesday morning in the Jerusalem corridor, near the town of Nataf. Residents of the town were evacuated.

Health officials in fire-afflicted areas around the country issued health warnings Wednesday as brush fires continued to burn.

In Zichron Ya’akov, local officials told residents to stay indoors with the windows and vents closed as far as possible.

In the Binyamin region, authorities noted a spike in breathable [smoke] particles in and around the community of Dolev and recommended that elderly people and individuals with respiratory conditions leave the area.

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.

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.
