Ernst Zündel (extensive bio)
"50 years after the war, long after people have buried their dead, started new lives, looked to the future; one group has decided to make it a part of their culture, recited in religious ceremony, pushing it into our living rooms, movie theaters, and written news.
They own these mediums. They have forced their cause into our culture, our government. It has taken deep root, and only an alternative source of information will pull it out."
". . . temporarily bar Israeli interrogators from tying a Palestinian detainee to a tilted stool with his hands cuffed behind his back, a sack over his head and loud music blasting in his ears."
The judgment was 5-4. The decision was seen by many as a landmark case brought by two Palestinian detainees protesting against "shabah," meaning a "stretching forth". They say it is torture and should be barred. Most people would agree.
This case was heard in the first week of the new year. State Attorney Shai Nitzan acknowledged that detainees often are forced to sit in the position while cuffed, hooded and blasted with music.
However, explained this Talmudic twister, this condition
". . . occurred only in the waiting period between interrogation sessions and was meant to keep detainees from communicating with each other or from attacking Israeli agents."
". . . suspected of having ties to the Islamic group Hamas, which has carried out more than a dozen suicide bombings in Israel since 1994.
"(One of the detainees) is suspected of membership in a Hamas cell blamed for three drive-by shootings, the abduction and slaying of an Israeli soldier and a suicide bombing in a Tel Aviv cafe in March.
"The Supreme Court has not yet announced when it will rule on the
petition to bar the "shabah" altogether."
"I wonder why the human right organizations are not up in
arms? And why the so-called "news media" isn't running this in prime time slots"?
Thought for the Day:
"I don't give two flakes off a mouldy matzoh, of course, who is protecting our children from the evening news . . ."
