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.
