ISRAEL – Insanity of Eli Yishai Israel’s Interior Minister (video) and some interesting facts about Israeli ‘justice’

Eli Yishai2The following video is of Israel’s Interior Minister speaking at the Ramle Conference in April 2012 about foreign workers (referring mainly to ethnic Africans). We will leave you to make your own minds up.

In a report published this month, Yesh Din, an organisation defending the human rights of Palestinians in Israel, has analysed official data relating to incitements served and convictions.

Out of 103 investigations into alleged offences committed by Israeli soldiers in the occupied territories opened in 2012, not one indictment was served.

A summary of the data on the Yesh Din website:

‘In the wake of recent events, Yesh Din published today a new data sheet about criminal accountability of IDF soldiers in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip. The data indicates a clear downward trend in the rate of indictments served: in the years 2009-2011 indictments were served following 2.5% of the investigations opened into alleged offenses committed by Israeli soldiers while in 2012 not a single MPCID investigation resulted in an indictment.

In the second half of January at least five unarmed Palestinian civilians were shot and killed by IDF fire in the West Bank and Gaza. Lior Yavne, Director of Research at Yesh Din, commented on the findings: “The numerous defects in MPCID investigations of offenses against Palestinians, and in the Military Advocate General Corps’ supervision of the investigations, result in the closure of the vast majority of the files and a minimal number of indictments being served. This creates a feeling of lawlessness on the ground, which may be a central contributing factor in the rise in the number of killings over recent weeks.”

The data sheet, based on information provided to Yesh Din by the IDF spokesperson, as well as the organization’s ongoing research, shows the following:

• In 2012 the MPCID received 240 complaints and various reports of suspected crimes allegedly committed by IDF soldiers against Palestinians and their property in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip.

• The MPCID opened criminal investigations into 78 of the 240 reports it received. Another 25 investigation files were opened that year into reports received in 2011. The MPCID opened a total of 103 criminal investigations in 2012.

• Data for the last years indicates a significant drop in the rate of indictments served. The data for the years 2009, 2010 and 2011 shows that 14 investigation files out of the 534 opened during those three years produced indictments; i.e., only 2.62%.

• Not a single investigation file opened by MPCID in 2012 yielded an indictment. Only one indictment was served in 2012 against an IDF soldier accused of hurting a Palestinian, and that followed an investigation that had opened in 2011.

• The absence of an MPCID base in the West Bank led to only six Palestinians managing to submit their complaints directly to the MPCID in 2012. The others had to seek the help of various intermediaries such as human rights organizations and the Israel Police.’
