Mubarak to be Freed from Jail This Week, Says His Lawyer

Monday, August 19th, 2013

Hosni Mubarak, overthrown two years ago in the Arab Spring rebellion and jailed on charges of murder and corruption, will be freed from jail this week after being cleared of a charge of corruption, his lawyer Fareed el Deeb announced Monday, but murder charges still await him.

He added that one other charge of corruption remains open and that the case will be concluded later this week. “All we have left is a simple administrative procedure that should take no more than 48 hours. He should be freed by the end of the week,” Deeb said.

Mubarak’s two sons remain in jail, and the former dictator’s trial on charges of involvement in murder of protesters in 2011 is to resume next week.

 

 

Murderer of Arabs Asks to Be Released with Palestinians

Monday, August 12th, 2013

Ami Popper, in Israeli jail for the murder of 7 Palestinian day workers in 1990, sent a letter to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu demanding to be set free, along with the rest of the Jewish security prisoners in jail today.

“Mr. Prime Minister, in recent years thousands of Palestinians with and without blood on their hands have been set free,” Popper wrote. And while they’re given an opportunity to continue or to start a new life outside the prison walls, they simply misuse this wonderful opportunity, repeat their terrible deeds and return to jail, knowing full well that their release will soon come.”

Popper noted that it was difficult for him to write the prime minister and to come to terms with his own terrible deed.

On May 20, 1990, Popper put on IDF uniform trousers he had stolen from his brother, then stole his brother’s assault rifle and five ammunition clips, and went to a bus stop where he asked men waiting for the bus in Rishon Letzion for their ID cards. After confirming that they were Arabs, he lined them up and opened fire, killing seven. Seven more Palestinians were killed by Israeli security forces during riots that erupted after the murder, and 700 were injured.

Popper, whose admittedly horrible acts are overmatched by the murders of Jews committed by some of the prisoners being released on Tuesday, asked Netanyahu to treat him and his fellow Jewish security prisoners equally and release them as well.

“Such a great act of releasing myself and my friends, would show the world the exulted qualities of the nation of Israel, merciful and children of merciful, giving a second chance not only to the enemy but to their own as well,” Popper wrote.

It should be noted that while the vast majority of Palestinian murderers slated to be let free have shown no remorse, Popper is contrite about his actions. He begs:

“Please, Mr. Prime Minister, receive my supplication and my regret and the outcry of my family, and give us a chance in this season, on the eve of Rosh Hashanah, which is intended for repent for the entire world.”

Considering the fact that Popper has served more than 20 years behind bars, his request seems at least as reasonable as that of the Palestinians.

Saudi Blogger Faces Jail and 600 Lashes For Insulting Islam

Wednesday, July 31st, 2013

Only 600 lashes? The libs will say that is progress. The question is, how many lashes can any human being withstand? I think beheadng is more …. humane.

“We believe that when public speech is deemed offensive, be it via social media or any other means, the issue is best addressed through open-dialogue and honest debate,” said US State Department spokeswoman

As for the State department’s hollow remarks, I submit that the State Department should cease meeting with the OIC in Washington in order to impose restrictions on speech in accordance with the blasphemy laws under the sharia. I submit that the State Department should withdraw the Secretary of State’s remarks. I submit that the Department of Justice should withdraw its vow to criminalize postings on social media that offend Muslims. I submit that Obama should cease blaming youtube and freedom of expression for murderous attacks on Americans in Benghazi and beyond. I submit that Obama should stop championing the adoption of anti-free speech resolution by the UN.

“Saudi Blogger Raif Badawi Faces Jail and 600 Lashes For Insulting Islam” IBTimes, July 31, 2013

An international outcry was triggered by a Saudi Arabian court that handed a seven-year jail and 600 lashes sentence to the editor of a liberal website for violating Islamic values.

Raif Badawi has been in detention since 2012, after being arrested on cyber-crime charges related to Free Saudi, the website he founded which hosted discussions on religion in the ultraconservative Islamic kingdom.

The US and France expressed deep concerns at the punishment also slammed by human rights groups.

“We believe that when public speech is deemed offensive, be it via social media or any other means, the issue is best addressed through open-dialogue and honest debate,” said US State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki.logger makes a mockery of Saudi Arabia’s claims that it supports reform and religious dialogue,” said Nadim Houry, deputy Middle East director at Human Rights Watch.

“A man who wanted to discuss religion has already been locked up for a year and now faces 600 lashes and seven years in prison.”

Judges at Jeddah criminal court reportedly dropped the heaviest charge of apostasy - which carries an automatic death sentence – after Badawi, gave assurances he was a Muslim.

“The judge asked Raif, ‘Are you a Muslim?’ and he said ‘Yes, and I don’t accept anyone to cast doubt on (my belief)’,” Badawi’s wife, who moved abroad in 2012 with her children, tweeted.

However, the court found Badawi guilty of insulting Islam and ordered the closure of the website, Al-Watan newspaper reported.

Judges also gave Badawi an additional three months in jail for disobeying his father, a crime in Saudi Arabia. The two allegedly had numerous public confrontations over the years.

Part of prosecutors’ evidence consisted in postings by Badawi and anonymous members of his site critical of senior Saudi religious figures, HRW reported.

Badawi’s troubles with the authorities started shortly after he started Free Saudi in 2008.

He was forced to leave the country in May that year, after authorities charged him with “setting up an electronic site that insults Islam”.

As the charges were dropped he returned to his homeland but continued his online activity, HRW said.

In March 2012 he was designated as an “unbeliever and apostate” by a well-known cleric Sheikh Abdulrahman al-Barrak.

Al-Barrak reportedly claimed Badawi was guilty of saying “that Muslims, Jews, Christians, and atheists are all equal”.

In accordance with a strict interpretation of Islamic law, Saudi courts implement a series of corporal punishments, of which flogging is considered the most lenient.

Uri Ariel: US Keeps Pollard in Jail and Demands We Free Killers

Sunday, July 21st, 2013

“What is going on in the minds of Americans when they  insist on keeping Jonathan Pollard in prison and demand  that Israel free terrorists” who have murdered Jews, Housing Minister Uri Ariel asked on Voice of Israel Sunday. “It really is amazing.”

Pollard has been in jail, despite ill health, for 28 years for the crime of passing on classified information on behalf of Israel when he worked for the Pentagon. He is the onlyAmerican ever to be sentenced to life in prison for the offense, which usually bears a prison term of 2-4 years.

Pollard has been in jail, despite ill health, for 28 years for the crime of passing on classified information on behalf of Israel when he worked for the Pentagon. He is the only person ever to be sentenced to life in prison for the offense, which usually bears a prison term of 2-4 years.

Jewish Press editor Yori Yanover wrote on Friday, “Israel is giving in on the release of Palestinian prisoners with Jewish blood on their hands. ‘There will be some release of prisoners,’ said Minister of Strategic Affairs Yuval Steinitz. ‘I don’t want to give numbers but there will be heavyweight prisoners who have been in jail for tens of years.’”

In case anyone as sleeping  with the bears in hibernation at the time, Israel has freed thousands of terrorists and security prisoners for dead bodies and most recently for the return of one live body – kidnapped soldier Gilad Shalit.

Since the 1000-for-1 exchange  two years ago, dozens of the freed Palestinian Authority Arabs have returned to terror.

Previous releases of terrorists have resulted in more than 120 murders of Jews in Israel by the same Palestinian Authority “resistance fighters.

But their suicide bombings do not compare with the gravity of  Pollard’s crime. If not, why would the American judicial system – which of course is fairer, more modern and more sophisticated than the process in primitive Israel – keep Pollard in jail for life?

Pollard’s crime is obviously so heinous that he was not even allowed to attend the funeral of his father in 2011. Nor was he allowed to leave his cell to attend the funeral of his mother 10 years earlier.

The American government really is not hard-hearted. Officials actually allowed Pollard to call his father a week before his death. His father was too weak to speak on the telephone but so what? That’s not the government’s fault.

Leading American politicians who were in office at the time that Pollard was sentenced have come forth in the past three years to admit that he did not receive a fair trial and  that he was unfairly punished.

Israel, cited every year by the U.S. State Dept. for human rights violations, is apparently ready to free more than 80 terrorists, who have visiting privileges, who received “salaries” from the Palestinian Authority for their previous success in killing Jews, and who are paid by Israel to learn in university.

Israel  perhaps could learn something from the United States, but that will have to wait because  U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry needs direct talks between Israel and the Palestinian Authority to save his face.

Justice Defeats Sick Mind Using Internet Tips to Kill Parents

Tuesday, July 2nd, 2013

A Jerusalem court has sentenced a 29-year-old man to two consecutive life terms in prison for the brutal knife murders of his parents, which he tried to cover up by using tips from the Internet on “”how to kill your parents and get away with it.”

A sick mind that can run up gambling debts and then even think about murdering his parents, one of them suffering from cancer, proves its twisted state when it comes up with the idea of blaming a twin brother for the murders.

How sick can a sick mind be sick? The murderer, Daniel Maoz, even tried to claim that he did not tell anyone about his brother’s alleged attacks because he was afraid he would reveal something about Maoz’s past as a pedophile.

Maoz’s parents had invited him to their home for dinner. He returned the favor by stabbing his parents dozens of times – 71, to be exact – and continued his primitive attack as they tried to defend themselves, until succumbing to their wounds.

He then turned his back on their dead bodies and began trying to erase the evidence. Afterwards, Maoz went to an ATM machine, withdrew about $500  in shekels, and calmly went to his favorite gambling place so he could continue to bet his way to happiness while using it as an alibi that he was nowhere near the scene of the crime.

Like many criminals with a mind that is no less manipulative than that of Pharaoh, Maoz spent his waiting time in prison putting on a kippa, growing a beard and learning Torah.

If he had been sincere, the court might have been able to find some mercy, such as combining the life sentences instead of making them consecutive.

Maoz ignored DNA evidence at the scene of the crime and insisted throughout the trial that is twin brother was the killer. An examination of the murderer’s computer revealed that he had surfed to find out, “Can soap clean DNA from a knife? Maoz insisted he simply was checking  out the sites out of curiosity.”

What is even more curious is his mind.

The judicial panel, headed by Judge Tzvi Segal, found that “without a reasonable doubt, the defendant attacked his parents in cold blood…. We did not find any signs of respect by the defendant for his parents. The earth is shouting and the heavens are trembling.”

It added that the blood his cancer-stricken mother, age 60,  and the blood of father, 64. was spilled “cruelly and for no reason” by their son.

“The defendant not only did not express regret, but he also continued to blame his brother for the Satanic murder, thoroughly planned out to achieve the aim of a twisted mind.

Pharaoh never admitted the truth. Maybe Maoz won’t either. Maybe he will.

Rabbi Uzi Meshulam (60)

Friday, June 21st, 2013

Rabbi Uzi Meshulam (60) died on Friday afternoon.

Meshulam was an activist who claimed that thousands of Yemenite babies were taken away from their families by the Israeli government when they were brought to Israel between 1948 and 1954 .

Meshulam’s activism escalated until it resulted in a standoff between Israeli police and Meshulam’s followers in 1994, which left one person dead, and 11 people arrested.

But the end result was that the government established the Cohen Committee in 1995 to uncover where the missing Yemenite children went.

The committee provided explanations for many of the disappearances, though a few cases remained unexplained, and are still open. The committee said there was no government conspiracy.

Three Terrorists Who Murdered Ben-Yosef Livnat Captured

Wednesday, June 19th, 2013

The Shabak (Israeli General Security Services) has removed the gag order on the capture of three of the terrorists who were involved in the murder of Ben-Yosef Livnat at Joseph’s Tomb in Shechem in 2011. That attack also wounded five additional Israelis.

Two other terrorists involved in the attack have not yet been captured, according to a report in Arutz-7.

Ben-Yosef Livnat (24) from Elon Moreh, was a father of four, and the nephew of Minister Limor Livnat.

The three terrorists were members of the Palestinian Security Forces. Following their terror attack, they were put into a Palestinian jail to protect them from capture by the IDF.

A few months ago they were released (or “escaped”). The IDF captured them in May.
