Netanyahu buys Justice

Neither Rule of Law nor Justice...

The Grunis Law

Earlier today, December 12, 2011, Netanyahu’s coalition withdrew from the Knesset what is known as the Grunis Law, named after Justice Asher Dan Grunis. This is a personal law legislated specifically to allow Mr. Grunis to become the next President of Israel’s Supreme Court.

Netanyahu is under pressure. In February 2012, Dorit Beinisch, the actual president, is about to retire since Justices in Israel retire at the age of 70. Among all candidates – the remaining 13 Justices - Asher Dan Grunis is the favored by Netanyahu to become the next president. Grunis is a descendant of Rabbi Yitzhak Meir Alter, founder of the Gur Hassidic movement. As such, he is the closest existing candidate to the right-wing, Pharisaic ideology favored by Netanyahu’s coalition. Unluckily, another right-wing government sabotaged this already in July 2007, when it promoted an amendment to the Israel Courts Law stating that a Justice with less than three years of service left wouldn’t be eligible as president. On the day the serving president leaves office, Mr. Grunis will be 41 days short of this limitation. Hence, he can’t be elected. Avoy!

As a consequence, Netanyahu tried to rush through the Knesset the Grunis Law, so that his favored Justice would become president. The opposition placed 5000 objections in the way of the new law. Consequently, it has been withdrawn.

Supreme Court of Injustice

American people discovered the importance of Justices during the presidential elections of 2000, when only one vote did matter in America: the one of the judge deciding on the Bush-Gore case. In Israel, the situation is not different. Almost invariably, Justices are Pharisaic Jews, and that reflects on their decisions. Let’s take a look at three notorious ones:

Mahmud Gnayem was 24 years old when he was killed in Pardes Hannah, during a 2006 raid on car thieves, by an Israeli policeman. Shahar Mizrahi was his Jewish assassin. Mahmud Gnayem's cousin, Waji Ghanaim, who arrived at the scene shortly after the shooting, said that the car was parked on the side of the road at the time of the shooting, meaning the victim couldn’t have been running away from the police. The victim wasn’t armed, yet Mizrahi shot him to death. In 2009, Mizrahi was sentenced to a mere fifteen months in prison. He appealed to the Israeli Supreme Court, and said there that his shooting was intentional and that his life was not in danger during the event. Yet, he insisted he acted out of self-defense. For being illogical, his sentence was doubled to thirty months in July 2010. Yet, this is dirty cheap for a cold blood assassination. During all this time, Mizrahi hadn’t been relieved from his duties as policeman.

Justice Asher Dan Grunis

The Simon Wiesenthal Center was established in 1977 as "an international Jewish human rights organization dedicated to repairing the world one step at a time. The Center’s multifaceted mission generates changes through the Snider Social Action Institute and education by confronting anti-Semitism, hate and terrorism, promoting human rights and dignity, standing with Israel, defending the safety of Jews worldwide, and teaching the lessons of the Holocaust for future generations."

Showing its "humanitarian principles based on tolerance," the center decided to destroy the Muslim Cemetery in Mamilla and to build “The Center for Human Dignity” and the “Museum of Tolerance” over it. Since they are capable of saying this mega-irony without blinking, they should be given the Nobel Peace Prize in the first opportunity. The construction of the center began in June 2005 and was frozen by an Israeli Supreme Court order on February 2006. However, in November 2008, the same court allowed the construction to proceed, noting that this corner of the cemetery had been transformed into a parking lot as long ago as the 1960s, and that Jerusalem has been inhabited for roughly 4000 years, and thus many ancient sites have been built over.

The third event is a systemic and painful violation of human rights, extensively described in The Cross of Bethlehem

The “Citizenship Law (Temporary Order)” of the State of Israel, dates – in its actual version – back to September 2005. From the days of its previous version (2003) it is being approved temporarily by the Israeli government every year. In 2006, five judges of the High Court of Justice stated that the law contravened the Basic Law on Human Dignity and Freedom and that it must be removed from the law books.

Yet, it is being extended using an extra-parliamentary procedure every year since then. It doesn’t override the “Law of Return,” a racist monster giving automatic citizenship to every Jew arriving at Israel (the question “Who is a Jew?” was never answered by the Knesset), thus this younger law is aimed mainly to regulate the status of non-Jews asking for Israeli citizenship; it specifically discriminates Arabs. To be clear to those unaware of Israeli racist jargon, that means mainly Palestinians asking for citizenship after having married an Israeli citizen. It stipulates that the Minister of Interior does not have authority to approve Israeli residence for a resident of Judea and Samaria (unless they are Jewish settlers!).

This is so even regarding marriage, when it comes to Palestinian spouses who are younger than 35 (men) or 25 (women). The law prevents young Israeli citizens (supposedly Palestinians) from marrying the spouse of their choice and living in Israel, if the last is a Palestinian from Judea and Samaria. Justice Rubinstein (the publication of papers showing his corruption was suppressed by the Israeli media in 2005) claimed that there is no country in the situation of Israel and thus the law is justified. The president of the court, Dorit Beinish, supported this view.

Since it was amended in 2005, until 2010, 632 requests of citizenship were rejected by the state, on the grounds that the petitioners may use their new status to become terrorists with easier access to Israel. 632 broken families; 1264 new testimonies of Israel’s inhumanity and an unknown number of children that won’t be born. 1264 new testimonies of Israel’s Supreme Court being a stronghold of Jewish discrimination and injustice.

Now What?

Netanyahu is under pressure. His law has been sabotaged for an opposition that is not interested in justice, but just in the promotion of its equally unjust candidates and policies. In his pathetic attempt to buy a Justice and his glory, Netanyahu would increase this week his attempts to buy enough votes in the Knesset in order to pass the Grunis Law for the eternal splendor of his racist state.
