Jerusalem Terrorist Was Just Released from Jail before Starting New Prison Sentence

Sunday, October 9th, 2016

Mesbah Abu Sabih, 39, the terrorist who killed two Israelis and wounded six on Sunday morning in Jerusalem, was supposed to start serving a four-month prison sentence for attacking a policeman in 2013, according to a social network post he published on Friday, NRG reported. He was arrested before the High Holidays and released only a week ago, after being issued a restraining order to stay out of Jerusalem.

Abu Sabih, who was shot dead after a shootout with police, wrote in his post that his life was “worthless” if he wasn’t able to enter the Al Aqsa Mosque, as per his restraining order.

Last year, Abu Sabih was indicted on eight counts of incitement to violence and terrorism, and eight counts of supporting a terror organization.

Among other things, he wrote: “Your holiday is our might and victory and opportunity. 19 of your soldiers were kiled. Oh, killers of children, the most cowardly, contemptible and base soldiers. The Kassem heroes pushed your heads in the dirt of kassem and of the resistance soldiers, Allahu Akbar, Praised Be Allah. … The soldier who was damaged from the fireworks, lost his hearing, huh huh huh, and received burns on his neck, huh huh huh … Beware of fireworks, they’re very dangerous. We wish our children good health, and the enemy humiliation, deafness, burns and blindness.”

Rare Captured Footage Released Shows Israeli Spy Eli Cohen’s Execution [video]

Tuesday, September 20th, 2016

Mainstream media broadcast rare footage on Tuesday of the execution by hanging of Israeli spy Eli Cohen, and the removal of his body from the gallows in a Damascus public square.

The footage was filmed by official Syrian government television.

The film was captured by Syrian opposition forces during the civil war and handed over to Israeli contacts.

Cohen began working for Israeli intelligence in May 1960 in a unit that eventually became known as the Caesarea special operations unit of the Mossad. He joined the agency three years after moving to Israel from Egypt at age 33.

Eli Cohen worked in Damascus under the alias of Kamal Amin Ta’abet from 1962 until his exposure and execution on May 18, 1965. Cohen was able to supply considerable details on Syrian political and military matters because of his strong interpersonal skills and abilities to build close ties with business, military, and Ba’ath Party leaders, and Syrian President Amin el Hafiz.

He was captured on January 18, 1965, by three Syrian intelligence officers, led by the head of Syrian intelligence, Col. Suweidani, who broke into his apartment in the early morning hours. He was hanged in Martyr’s Square with the television cameras rolling for the entire world to see.

Cohen left behind his wife Nadia and three children, all living in Israel.

Watching the video Tuesday after its release was difficult, to say the least, for Nadia Cohen and other family members.

“There were tears and nerves as we watched, how they lowered him down from the rope into the coffin, to see three cars circling around and to see the crowd in the square with celebratory music blaring. It’s not easy,” Cohen’s widow said.

“I hadn’t seen the movie, only pictures,” she noted. “The children saw it today, and obviously the sadness echoed in our souls. I just hope someone reveals where Eli is buried so we can bring him back, that there’s one person who reveals where the body is, so we can have peace.

“Whether it’s the prime minister of the head of the Mossad, they should fight to bring Eli home,” she added. “We need a man who will bring Eli home to restore our peace. Even in death, there is truth.” She underscored the fact that for her, there is no peace while she has no grave at which to mourn for her husband.

Cohen was sent in 1961 to build an identity as a Syrian exile working as a merchant in Argentina, forming connections with Syrian government officials along the way. “Don’t mourn for the past,” he wrote to his wife, “but rather look to the future.”

IDF: Free Degree For Released Combat Soldiers

Tuesday, August 9th, 2016

By Tzvi Lev/TPS

Jerusalem (TPS) – The IDF announced that soldiers who enlisted before 2013 and served in a combat unit will now be eligible for a free academic degree as of October.

The new measure, which is estimated to cost NIS 230 million a year, will pay for two thirds of the soldiers’ education while the last third will be paid for by the soldiers’ post-military grant. The funds for the program will be provided by the Friends of The IDF and the Association for the Wellbeing of Israel’s Soldiers.

IDF Chief of Staff Gadi Eizenkot also reportedly asked Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon to find ways to fund the education of non-combat soldiers as well.

Ari Friedman, 25, served in the Kfir Brigade and welcomed the IDF’s decision. “I am glad to see that the IDF is taking the initiative to assist its soldiers in advancing their education and life beyond their service,” he said. “I have no doubt that this will make a positive impact on the soldiers upon their release, as well as on the State of Israel at large.”

Soldiers from minority or disadvantaged backgrounds will also be eligible for the new program despite not having served in a combat unit.

Rabbi Kahane’s Grandson to Be Released into House Detention, Restrictions

Monday, May 30th, 2016

The good news is that Meir Ettinger, grandson of the late Rabbi Meir Kahane, is expected to be released on Wednesday, June 1, following 10 months of solitary confinement in administrative detention, meaning he never committed any crime, but former Defense Minsiter Meir Ya’alon was convinced he was going to commit bad things if only he were allowed to roam free. And so, in the same vein, although Ettinger will presumably be allowed to leave jail, he won’t be doing a lot of roaming, Hakol Hayehudi reported Monday.

An administrative decree signed by OC Central Command Maj. Gen. Roni Numa bans Ettinger from Judea and Samaria for a period of one year. Another decree, signed by GOC Home Front Command Maj. Gen. Yoel Strick, bans Ettinger from Jerusalem and from the community of Yad Binyamin.

In addition, Ettinger must obey a night curfew for the next four months, and he has been banned from contacting a list of 92 acquaintances.

Ettinger is the second rightwing activist banned from contacting a long list of his friends — another young man was served last Friday with a decree running 87 names he is forbidden to contact.

Stay tuned for a solidarity with Meir Ettinger event his friends are organizing, which suggests that they’d be contacting him via YouTube.

Jewish activists Meir Ettinger and Evyatar Slonim were placed in administrative detention—an old British Mandate “temporary” regulation which is being employed by Israeli courts to incarcerate security risks whose alleged crimes cannot be proven—last August. They were then transferred to the security wing of Eshel prison near Be’er Sheva in early October.

Ettinger’s uncle, Binyamin Kahane, was killed with his wife Talya in a shooting attack near the settlement of Ofra in December 2000.

During his stay in isolation, his attorney, Sima Kochav, wrote: “They keep [Palestinian] security prisoners in this wing, which means the IPS is violating its mandate and risking the life of a prisoner needlessly. Not only have they damaged his conditions unreasonably, disproportionately and contrary to the ordinance, but they are, at this moment, risking his life in a tangible way. The [Arabs’] cells are adjacent to his cell.”

Kochav also pointed out that “while the prisoners exit to the yard, they knock on his cell doors, talk into his cell window, and threaten his life. Likewise during the outings, when the prisoners are in the yard, the detainee (Ettinger) is showered with curses, insults, and, worst of all, death threats. In addition, the prisoner in the cell next to Mr. Ettinger’s is banging on the walls throughout the night and shouting, in order to disturb and harm Mr. Ettinger.”

Meir Kahane’s Grandson May Be Released from Administrative Detention

Tuesday, May 17th, 2016

After ten months of administrative detention in an isolation cell, without charges or an indictment, never mind a trial, prisoner Meir Ettinger, grandson of the late Rabbi Meir Kahane, is expected to be released—probably to home detention, a Shabak representative told the Lod District Court on Tuesday.

The court ruled that the clandestine police must determine in one week which limiting conditions it would like to see placed on Ettinger after his release, possibly on June 1.

Last summer, while he was being interrogated by the Jewish Section of the Shabak, Ettinger was presented with a six-month administrative detention order signed by Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon. A few weeks later, an additional administrative decree signed by Ya’alon moved Ettinger to an isolation cell when the prison authorities expressed concern that Ettinger was influencing the other prisoners. When the six months were up, Ya’alon signed another, four-month decree, the maximum allowed by law for an extension.

One month ago, the rightwing public was enraged when Ya’alon refused to allow Ettinger to leave jail for a few hours in order to attend his firstborn son’s circumcision in Jerusalem.

So far, Meir Kahane’s great-grandson, Netzach Binyamin, who is two months old, has not been served with a Ya’alon administrative detention writ, though the prison authorities did suggest the brit mila be performed in jail.
