Israel Police Joins Underworld
Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.—John 8:44
New in the Website
If I were to start this article in any different fashion, I would get angry emails claiming "but in our country it is the same!" It doesn't matter, a crime is a crime, and cannot be sanctioned by its taking place elsewhere or by its being perpetrated by government officials. A policeman must respect the law; he cannot break it in order to enforce it. Veteran readers of this website could claim, "You already reported on the rape of Jewish girls by Israel Police, what can be worse?" This claim is legitimate; yet, incredibly, this paragon of state-crimes didn't stop there.
Criminals appearing in court mentioned an "information tax" imposed by the police. If they bring information on crimes committed by larger criminals, their crimes are ignored; they call it also "insurance document." It assures the lesser criminals that if caught, they would be protected as underground agents of the police. Attorney Yaakov Suderi reported these findings in a long article that appeared in Haaretz on February 28. Police activity and claims have been rendered as nothing but criminal acts. In the case of Prime Minister Olmert, this was probably an attempt of the Secret Police, the Shin Beth, to block his peace initiative with the Palestinians, which had almost crossed the threshold to a permanent peace agreement. The State of Israel favors war; Yitzhak Rabin and Ariel Sharon paid dearly in similar circumstances.
It is worse than that...
On the last day of February 2013, a public letter written by the Police Affairs Journalists was sent to the Israel Police General Headquarters and its Intelligence Directorate, and was published by Channel 7, which disclosed also the names of the journalists signing it. They work for all major Hebrew media outlets, including the Army Radio, all main newspapers, and the largest websites. In the Israeli context, this is a dramatic move, especially considering the content of the letter. In it, the journalists complained about the censorship systematically imposed by the police through court orders that ban the mentioning of sensitive affairs by the media. These refer mainly to events presenting the police as corrupt or ineffective. The abovementioned cases were too difficult to hide, but, according to this impressive list of journalists, censorship is the norm in Israel. The letter stated that the journalists had decided to censor the Israel Police 2012 Report. In a humorous touch, the Police reaction showed that maybe they are not good policemen, but they are extraordinary clowns. Israel Police Spokesman said, "Yesterday, after they were invited to the yearly summary event of the Tel Aviv District, when the Police Commissioner was getting ready to speak, the journalists left the room while purposely disturbing public order..."
