Evil Judge

Recently I commented on how, trapped in obsolete Roman Empire principles, the Western Judiciary system is sinning against the people. Only days afterwards, a hideous ruling of an Israeli judge reminds us that evil runs deeper than described. Westphalian-States (what passes as "Western-Democracies") are based on the separation of powers into legislature, executive, and judiciary. The latter is the system of courts that interprets and applies the law in the name of the unholy state. However, the judges are elected by the executive and legislative powers (there are small variations among the countries) and are under their payroll. How can judges claim to be impartial? Many years ago, I had the opportunity to ask a relevant addressee this troubling question. I got a phenomenal answer: "We are professionals; we can separate personal interests." This website often evaluates rulings of Israeli judges. Invariably, they show the impartiality of a 3-year-old being offered a candy in exchange for... it doesn't matter, the kid would invariably reply: Candy first! On March 7, 2013, the Israeli Judiciary system provided another example of this eternal truth.

Eugenics and Other Evils : An Argument Against the Scientifically Organized State

Judge Eliahu Bitan, from the Be'er Sheva District Court, doesn't live in a vacuum. He reads Israeli news, speaks with Israeli citizens, and occasionally receives a salary from the Israeli state; he is an interested party. When the Eritrean citizen kept in the Saharonim Prison was brought to him, the honorable judge already knew what the story was. In recent years, Israel is experiencing a migration of African workers into its territory (see box at the bottom of this page). Israel loves them, they are excellent workers and accept slave-salaries. Many of them are political-asylum seekers. They can be extradited at any moment; thus they don't complain. When their number became too large for the taste of the administration, Israel started to expulse them using illegal ways as described in Snugly Smuggling Sudanese.

One of the most disturbing parts of this saga is that the workers reach Israel through the Sinai. In order to cross the desert, they pay large sums of money to Bedouins who rule the ancient trade paths; often they experience torture along the way. This last topic had caught the attention of international human rights organizations and is well documented. After all the suffering, they reach the Egypt-Israel border. They must cross it and reach one of Israel's metropolitan areas without being caught by the IDF or the Israeli police.


If caught, they are imprisoned, taken to court and expelled. Yet, since they often come from countries where they may experience violence for their odyssey, their expulsion is forbidden even by Israeli government regulations. Yet, the Population Authority of the latter had recently started to break governmental directives with the silent approval of Israel's Ministries of Justice and Foreign Affairs. Judge Eliahu Bitan not only knew that, but he became a willingly cooperator in this deadly policy. Requesting refuge due to evils caused by an oppressive government is a basic human right, it was recognized by the UN as international law in 1994; nobody can be jailed for that. Yet, on March 7, 2013, the Army Radio reported that the judge had decided to leave Simon Waldo, an Eritrean refugee, in Saharonim Prison, where he had been for the last six months. The judge said that Mr. Waldo's torture in the Sinai cannot justify his being released. Instead, he decided to add a chapter of Israeli torture to Mr. Waldo's life; being imprisoned with no reason is torture. "Let them learn not to violate the Zionist State!" was the judge's bestial message. He rejected article 30 of Israel's Law for the Prevention of Infiltration, which instruct judges to release infiltrators for humanitarian reasons. The inhuman judge claimed that since almost all infiltrators via the Sinai experience violence, the article cannot be sanctioned. He failed to mention the threshold number. Honorable Israeli Judge Bitan, would you have ruled the same for Jewish refugees escaping Auschwitz?

Systematic State-Crimes

Similar disregard of Israeli law has recently been expressed by the Speaker of the Knesset who requested to annex the West Bank without proper legislation. Other senior officials of the Israeli government expressed a similar attitude. Israel is playing a hypocrital game. "Let's legislate laws that can be marketed internationally as proof of our being respectful of law, but we will do what we want, to whom we want, in the best fashion we have learned from the Nazi regime. Human Rights exist only when we can profit from their enforcement!" With all the disgust towards the judge's ruling, the issue is not personal. We are witnessing here systematic crimes purposely carried out by the State.

The Law under the Swastika: Studies on Legal History in Nazi Germany

On March 4, the illegitimate expulsion of Africans via Egypt by Israel (initially deduced here) was proven after an Eritrean refused to leave Cairo for his country. He was threatened by Israel with three years in prison if he didn't leave willingly; this is called extortion. States are not supposed to engage in it. The following day Israel's Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein ordered the country's courts to stop expelling Eritreans, recognizing that the "willing deportation" document that the refugees were forced to sign was illegal. Two days later, Judge Bitan understood the message and left Mr. Waldo illegally in prison. He is a proud Israeli judge, he can decide whatever he wants. No law will restrict him. Judge of Israel, perpetrator of crimes against humanity. The United Nations requested from Israel explanations on related criminal behaviors already on February 27. As of now, Israel has not complied. Why should they? They are Holocaust survivors; hence, they can commit any crime their cold hearts wish.

Yet, the judge is correct on principle. Oppressive laws designed to benefit the few while violating the many cannot be accepted as legitimate. They are legal in the same way that the Nazi laws were legal, but they are not legitimate. Israel crossed the threshold from legal laws to illegitimate laws many years ago. They remember Hitler only when it is profitable.
