Cabinet Appoints Scourge of Settlers as Deputy Attorney General

Sunday, September 9th, 2012

JERUSALEM, Israel, Sept. 9th–Israel’s cabinet approved today the appointment of Shai Nitzan to the position of Deputy Attorney General for Special Assignments.

Nationalist activists and politicians say that as Deputy State Prosecutor for eight years Nitzan had a left-wing, anti-settlement, anti-nationalist agenda.

Speaking with reporters after the decision, Minister of Science Hershkowitz (Jewish Home) criticized the appointment, saying that trust has to be restored to the legal system and “this appointment does not restore trust.”

Minister of Culture and Sport Limor Livnat (Likud), however said that Minister of Justice Ya’akov Ne’eman told the cabinet that Nitzan would not deal with settlement-related matters.

Such issues, which were under the jurisdiction of Mike Blass who is retiring, would now fall under the jurisdiction of Dina Zilber, whose appointment as Blass’s replacement was approved in the same meeting.

President Peres Condemns Jerusalem Mufti’s Incitement

Monday, January 23rd, 2012

President Shimon Peres has joined the chorus of voices condemning Jerusalem Mufti Sheikh Muhammed Hussein for glorifying the murder of Jews, and called on Justice Minister Yaakov Ne’eman to prosecute Hussein.

“The mufti’s words are dangerous and are likely to bring about an escalation in Jewish-Arab relations, thereby endangering lives,” Peres told Ne’eman.

Ne’eman said he would look into possible legal avenues for dealing with the matter.
