15-Day Execution Order
Bolivia Issues Illegitimate Eviction Order Against Roi Tov

The situation was ridiculous. In a good example of what the Bolivian culture is, the inspector asked me about what I had just described as if his institution wasn't the one issuing the documents, as if they didn't have my file, as if we were meeting for the first time. I complied. Over time I learned the best is to tire them off with their own clumsy rhetoric. When I was finished he asked: "Why don't you issue new Israeli documents?" I repeated what he already knew: "The Israeli Embassy left Bolivia after the Black October of 2003. Because they left, I arrived. In 2009, President Evo Morales broke the relationship. I can't do that from here; even if I could I wouldn't venture to enter an Israeli embassy. I got refuge because of their violence towards me." At this point there was nothing else to say. "Wait here," he said to me and entered the inspectors' room.
In May 2011, I published "What Israel Won't Get: On Burger King and Vanunu," after Mordechai Vanunu was returned to jail for a few months. "Shame on you, democracy," he said on that opportunity and added that the Shin Bet will continue to torture him psychologically. Three central chapters in The Cross of Bethlehem II are dedicated to psychological torture methods, providing—probably for the first time ever—descriptions in accessible language on how is that achieved. One of the main tools used by states in order to achieve this evil goal is known as "Double Bind," and is related to Vanunu's claims and recent experiences. In its narrow meaning, Double Bind is an emotionally distressing dilemma in which an individual receives two or more conflicting messages, in which one message negates the other. A successful response to one message causes a failed answer to the other, so that the person will be automatically wrong regardless of response. The classical example is of an employer telling his employee to do a job, but doesn't allow enough time for that. If the employee is in danger of losing the job by questioning the situation, then the employee is in a Double Bind situation. This can be expanded into a whole range of daily situations. Look at the picture above; it was taken from the Matrix. A grandmotherly lady is offering cookies. At first sight, everything looks good and nice. Then, one notes that the cookies are shaped as Nazi Swastikas. This is disturbing, on the verge of being defined as horrific by some. There is a double bind, a double message implied in the event. The only target of this double message is to disturb the victim. This can be easily implemented by governmental organizations, effectively creating a torture that cannot be complained about in the type of courts existing nowadays. Bolivia is applying this torture to me.
An hour later he reappeared. He had spent most of this time attending papers brought by a busy secretary; everything in the fishbowl-styled office that he occupied was visible from my seat. "Please sign here," he said handing me an eviction order from the country. "You have 15 days to leave the country, unless you issue new documents." "How do I get new documents?," I asked the documents-issuing authority. "That is not my problem," he said.
I picked up a pen and wrote before signing: "My stay in Bolivia is permitted under Decision 461/2005 of CONARE." Then I signed. I got the idea of a similar action taken by Mary, Queen of Scots, when she tried to defend herself from the sharp, infected teeth of Queen Elizabeth I and Francis Walsingham. The inspector read that several times, carefully enunciating my written words; Bolivians always read aloud and slowly. His attitude changed immediately. "Do you have the printed decision?" he asked. "You are part of the body that emitted it!" I wanted to tell the fool. Instead, I handed him the decision.
"I am here legally, regardless of the document's validity date, unless the government revokes its decision," I said. In an attempt to soften the effect of my bouncing out of the valley of the shadow of death, I added "Look, I have nothing against the Bolivian people or their government. I simply don't want to be here. You gave me political refuge and then sold me out. You destroyed my throat; you can hear my struggled voice. I don't want to stay in Bolivia. I don't trust the Bolivian government and people."
He listened and said. "Make new documents. You will be able to move in Bolivia." He didn't explain how I could make new documents. He was the issuing authority and they were illegitimately refusing to give me documents for over a year.
"I don't want to stay here. I don't trust the Bolivian government. Why are you keeping me as political prisoner?"
"Wait here," he said and disappeared in the fishbowl. He returned almost immediately. "You have 15 days left," he said menacingly and left.
The Bolivian Gambit
Bolivia action is obvious. When the day comes, they'll throw me across the border without documents. Those reading my descriptions of the continent know that traveling around is difficult because of the lousy roads and the incredible level of police roadblocks. They search for drug traffickers; arriving there without proper documents isa suicide. In my situation it also invites entrapment activities by anybody capable of offering a bribe. To put things in proportion, in an attempt to evade fines, Bolivians often bribe policemen with the equivalent of seventy cents of an American dollar. It is safe to assume that Israel will be able to pay the necessary sum for my entrapment even without the help of the Rothschilds.
At a certain moment, one needs to decide either to cooperate with evil in exchange for a comfy home, a mortgage and occasional minor harassments by the government, or to do the right thing and become a man of God. I took my decision a long time ago, and now am just watching how the violent end develops. Bolivia, I am ready. Let my cross be raised!
This article was written with 14 days left. I do not know how this will develop. Bolivians are notorious for their violence; I may suffer a fake car accident or something similar. My only promise is to keep publishing as much as I can for as long as I can. Articles are available in both website roitov.com and roytov.com; if you find anything you like I recommend you downloading it. If I don't survive this, the site will probably be deactivated. Thank you for reading me and may God bless you!
