Dorit Beinisch toward/during/after Yitzhak Rabin’s Assassination (From Aug, 2008 to Present)

PART of In sum, I will travel ALL over the world and plead Palestinian Right to Targeted Killing of DORIT BEINISCH (Oct 2-16, 2008)

To be exact… HOW MANY POLITICAL HAPPENINGS HAVE HAPPENED SINCE DORIT BEINISCH’S APPOINTMENT AS THE PRESIDENT OF ISRAELI SUPREME COURT?

JIWON:
Apart from happenings in Haaretz in recent years, please check the date about Supreme Court and Palestinians. October 2006… This is right beginning of Dorit Beinisch’s era:
Settlers, IDF & State quietly expropriate land (West Bank settlement construction nearly doubled this year)

What’s more… I already reported incomprehensible article about Dorit Beinisch toward/during/after Rabin’s assignation in Talkbacks: Beinisch, Friedmann, Sex-Scandal, Corruption (Kangaroo Court from Sep 12, 2003). This name appears again in Haaretz article on Jan 20, 2005. So I organized it in the same collection:
Land lords: As a result of a secret Israeli government decision, thousands of Palestinians living in the West Bank who own land or homes in East Jerusalem lost all rights to their holdings. And there are already plans to build on the expropriated land.:
The findings of the committee made Kollek more determined than ever not to invoke the law. A summary of a meeting he held with the prime minister, Yitzhak Rabin, in August 1993, stated: “The prime minister agreed that no use will be made of absenteeism to evacuate permanent tenants from the eastern city.” The state attorney at the time, Dorit Beinisch (now a Supreme Court justice), was supposed to draw up a document in this spirit; none was issued. There was even talk of amending the law so that residents of the territories would not be considered absentees in relation to East Jerusalem.

Then, with the keywords, ‘Absentee Property Law & Beinisch,’ a series of articles appear… and I keep collecting the articles:

PART of Supreme Court after Olmert (Beinisch should get rid of Friedmann as quickly as possible, From Sep 3, 2008 to Present)
Justices block election to fill 3 Supreme Court vacancies Sep 21, 2008 / By Jerusalem Post

The three Supreme Court justices on the Judges’ Election Committee on Monday used the new law calling for a majority of seven members to appoint new justices to veto a meeting scheduled to fill three court vacancies.
The justices told the other members that the committee was not authorized to elect new justices because following the resignation of Prime Minister Ehud Olmert the previous evening, the government was a caretaker government. Four of the nine members of the committee, including its chairman, Daniel Friedmann, are politicians whose futures will shortly be in question if Kadima’s new head, Tzipi Livni, fails to form a government. Even if she does, it is not certain that Friedmann and the other minister on the committee, Gideon Ezra, will continue to serve in the cabinet and therefore be eligible to serve on the committee.

Friedmann and several other committee members, were furious at the justice’s position. “This is the worst stinking maneuver ever perpetrated in the legal world,” said one member of the committee whose name was not revealed.

Supreme Court President Dorit Beinisch, speaking Monday evening at the annual celebration of the opening of the legal year at the Israel Bar’s office in Jerusalem, said that the three Supreme Court justices who refused to appoint judges in chaotic political times did so out of the belief that their decisions might have serious political implications on a future government.
“We knew we would pay for this decision, but it was more important for us to stay true to ourselves. There was people who didn’t support this decision… We thought it appropriate that a temporary government not be too involved in appointing judges,” Beinish said.

Friedmann replied that, “Nine days after [former] prime minister Yitzhak Rabin was murdered, a committee for appointing Supreme Court judges… approved the appointment of Supreme Court judges Yaakov Tirkel and Dorit Beinish, a decision that has held till this day.”
“Unfortunately, Israel’s political system is not stable. Ministers come and go, but after a point, the citizens suffer and we need to address this injustice,” Friedmann continued.

Israel Bar chairman Yori Geiron, who represents the Bar on the committee, said that all six remaining committee members opposed the justice’s position, even though some, including him, believed that justices’ argument was sincere and based on a legitimate legal position.
After the committee members became embroiled in a fierce argument over the justices’ position, they decided to summon Attorney-General Menahem Mazuz to express his opinion. Mazuz said there was no reason for the committee not to make the new appointments.

Nevertheless, the justices would not budge. They based their legal argument on a High Court verdict handed down in December 2005 regarding a petition protesting the appointment of new members to the Kiryat Ono religious council while a caretaker government was in office. Although the court rejected the petition, it established the criteria which must be taken into account in balancing the arguments for and against allowing civil service appointments to be made while a caretaker government is in office. According to the judges, in the case of the Judges Election Committee, the criteria against allowing the appointments outweighed those in favor.

Another motive on Beinisch’s part could be that she wants to wait to see what happens in the coming weeks in the political realm in the hope that Friedmann will soon be out of the cabinet. The relations between the two have been badly strained ever since Friedmann was appointed to the justice ministry, primarily because Friedmann has been trying to introduce a series of laws and other changes aimed at weakening the Supreme Court and its president.
Right now, the two are at loggerheads over the appointment of Jerusalem District Court Judge Judith Tsur, whom Friedmann wants and Beinisch does not. On the other hand, Beinisch wants to appoint Tel Aviv District Court Judge Uzi Fogelman. However, because of the new law requiring a majority of seven committee members to appoint a new justice, Beinisch cannot obtain Fogelman’s appointment unless she gives Friedmann something in return. And Friedmann wants Tsur.

According to this way of viewing the latest rift between the two, the best way for Beinisch to get Fogelman without getting Tsur is to get rid of Friedmann as quickly as possible.
Geiron told The Jerusalem Post that it may take as long as until April before the three vacancies are finally filled. If Livni fails to form a government, new elections will probably be declared in November and held in March. After that, it will still take the winner time to form a new coalition and in the mealtime, the Pessah holiday season will begin. Since under Friedmann, the court is not allowed to appoint acting justices, it might have to function at 80 percent of its strength for months to come despite its heavy caseload.

Avishai Raviv – Eyal – and Yitzhak Rabin
May 22, 2007 / By Ezine Articles, David Ben-Ariel (Christian Zionist writer and author of Beyond Babylon: Europe’s Rise and Fall.)

Avishai Raviv was an Israeli government agent provocateur (whose code name was “Champagne” for the bubbles of incitement he created to tarnish the right-wing Israelis) who goaded Yigal Amir to assassinate Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin (although this is hotly disputed by investigative reporters like Barry Chamish).

Avishai Raviv has never been charged with incitement or as an accessory to the murder of Yitzhak Rabin and has disappeared from sight, undoubtedly just following orders.

I was NEVER involved with the extremist Jewish group “Eyal” but had met Avishai Raviv during a Temple Mount Faithful demonstration in Jerusalem when he helped me to protect Gershon during Tisha B’Av when the police carried Gershon away from the Mugrabi Gate and dropped him and he hit his head and went unconscious and the throng practically trampled him except for me trying to cover him and shouting at the people to be careful that Gershon was on the ground — and I’m pretty sure it was Avishai who helped me keep the people from stepping on him.

Howard Grief, an attorney and member of the Temple Mount Faithful, witnessed it all and wrote The Jerusalem Post about it (we both had a letter published the same day: Howard’s letter was called “Police Brutality” and mine was called “Discrimination” – The Jerusalem Post, Friday, Aug. 25, 1995).

Before that incident I had met Avishai Raviv in the office of the Temple Mount Faithful when he and someone else came there. He had invited Moshe Weisfish (Gershon Salomon’s cousin) and I to his apartment in Hebron, but it was later explained to me that Avishai was a “shtinker” (informer) and that the police wanted to falsely associate the Temple Mount Faithful with such people and how he had even taken it upon himself once in Tel Aviv to have an office on campus with “Temple Mount Faithful” on the door or something like that, which Gershon immediately forbade him upon knowledge of it as he had no authority to do it and did NOT represent the Temple Mount Faithful in any manner, shape or form.

This is what I remember of the agent provocateur Avishai Raviv and his fake group “Eyal.”

I might add though that after the assassination of Yitzhak Rabin, some female (British?) reporter (probably my age) who knew Nick Day of The Traveller, kept trying to get Avishai’s phone number or have me contact him (since she heard I had met him) until I told her I wanted nothing to do with him. She was unrelenting until Nick Day told her to back off. I guess she was his friend or acquaintance.

Another Tack: Friends in deed Sep 21, 2006 / By Jerusalem Post

Consider the merciless vetting to which candidates for the US Supreme Court are subjected. Would it be possible for aspirants to win ratification if even remotely connected with the illicit fielding of undercover agents by the FBI in order to delegitimize political adversaries? Any faint hint of involvement in rogue operations would forever foil a court appointment. The minimum required of Supreme Court justices is above-reproach records.

Not so in Israel.

For openers, there are no transparent hearings to scrutinize candidates to one of the most powerful positions in the land, particularly in view of how ultra-interventionist our court is. This court, a law unto itself, also replicates itself. “A friend brings a friend” in the worst of Israel’s tradition of unabashed cronyism.

So when state attorney Dorit Beinisch coveted a Supreme Court career, she needed a patron. In 1993 then-chief justice Meir Shamgar barred her entry. However, when her former law professor and mentor Aharon Barak took over as chief justice, he soon coopted her. In fact, Barak groomed Beinisch as the next chief justice, calculating that by his mandatory retirement age of 70 she’d be the most veteran justice on the bench (her stint began in 1996) and hence entitled by hallowed seniority custom to head the court.

THAT’S JUST what happened last week. Beinisch is now an august figure, and so nobody mentions her role in fielding Avishai Raviv as a Shin Bet agent provocateur, which required her approval as then state-attorney (from early 1989 through to the very end of 1995).

Raviv’s covert shenanigans weren’t exposed until after the Rabin assassination. He was the one who handed TV newsmen a small homemade photomontage of Rabin in SS uniform, to this day exploited to besmirch Rabin’s legitimate political opponents. The assassin himself was Raviv’s sidekick, goaded by him to do the deed.

Exactly 11 years ago, on September 22, 1995 – only weeks before the assassination – Israel state television titillated its viewers with particularly eerie footage shot in the wee hours in a deserted graveyard. A group of adolescents clustered around a tombstone, apparently taking part in a creepy clandestine initiation. The fact that their supposedly secret ceremony was conducted obligingly before TV crews astoundingly didn’t undermine the credibility accorded the sensational videos. The camera, as we’re often told, never lies.

That rite caused an undercover Jewish “terror ring,” dubbed Eyal, to burst irresistibly into the public awareness. The post-assassination Shamgar Inquiry Commission would reveal it as stage-managed, a fake, a set-up.

Raviv was the chieftain who swore-in “recruits” to the bogus underground. To garnish this libelous exploit with “moral authority” he chose as his theatrical-setting the last resting place of Lehi leader Avraham “Yair” Stern, who was cold-bloodedly murdered by the British in February 1942. Raviv even had his eccentric entourage sing out Yair’s anthem “Hayalim almonim” (Anonymous soldiers). The hauntingly evocative lyrics were meant to lend damning authenticity to sinister slander.

AS IT LATER emerged, this was all part of a scheme to tarnish the ideological so-called Right, to paint its adherents as wild-eyed hooligans and hothead nutcases who instigate mayhem and violence, and relish nothing more than tossing flaming matches into our regional tinderbox.

That’s perhaps why TV reporter Eitan Oren’s “scoop” was telecast nonstop, a fact which should have tipped off anyone familiar with the difficulty of securing coverage for bona fide stories.

Someone was clearly interested in giving Raviv resonance, and he got it unstintingly, especially when Raviv implicated Eyal in the homicide of an Arab slain by fellow Arabs in Halhoul that September.

The Halhoul incident drove the guardian of our collective conscience, Yossi Sarid, then serving on a ministerial committee overseeing the Shin Bet, to hectoringly demand the expulsion of every last Jew from nearby Kiryat Arba. He wouldn’t apologize even after the truth was divulged, insisting he “didn’t cast aspersions on upstanding people. There are no upstanding people in Kiryat Arba.” Raviv’s calumny was obviously scripted for a discriminating audience.

It would take persistent probes and obstinate litigation to belatedly wrest information about a high-level cover-up collusion. After gag orders were finally overturned, Beinisch pled ignorance. She maintained she “never permitted” Raviv to “incriminate innocent persons.” We have to take her word for it, because we’ll never know for sure.

WE’LL NEVER know if different tactics were sanctioned for communities, as distinct from individuals, if the prosecution merely approved defaming an entire segment of public opinion. The case against Raviv for libel and his macabre midnight pageant was closed – for “lack of public interest”- by Beinisch’s best friend and successor as state attorney Edna Arbel.

During Arbel’s state attorney tenure, a case against Beinisch’s husband, Yehezkel, for defrauding the income tax authorities was also closed. Beinisch blamed Yehezkel’s legal travails on “political antagonists” who’d stop at nothing to get at her. Again we may never know, because the tax charges were dropped.

TO BE SURE Yehezkel is still the subject of financial and felony investigations, which the prosecution is incredibly loath to pursue and apparently very eager to forget about. Nonetheless, formally at least, some allegations still hang over Yehezkel’s head, a circumstance which would have made his wife’s promotion to head the highest court in the land unlikely elsewhere – in Washington, for instance.

But here, as we noted, a friend brings a friend. And so, Beinisch made sure Arbel joined her on the Supreme Court. No feminist zeal was involved. Beinisch stopped at nothing to thwart the candidacies of two of the country’s most esteemed law professors: Ruth Gavison and Nili Cohen.

In true oligarchies nothing is left to chance.

The Beinisch court Sep 9, 2006 / By Jerusalem Post

Dorit Beinisch was approved last Thursday as the new Supreme Court president and will be sworn in this coming Thursday, the day her predecessor Aharon Barak steps down. Beinisch and Barak go back a long way.
(…) Barak had been her mentor ever since. Without Barak, Beinisch would have never been appointed to the Supreme Court. The first time her appointment was mooted – in 1993 – it was foiled by then Chief Justice Meir Shamgar and was likewise vehemently opposed by then-premier Yitzhak Rabin, whom Beinisch incensed on more than one occasion as state prosecutor, most conspicuously when Rabin exiled 415 Hamas activists to Lebanon in 1993. When Barak succeeded Shamgar he vowed to appoint Beinisch to the Supreme Court, which he did in 1995. He not only handpicked her but he knew that by virtue of the seniority tradition, she would succeed him as chief justice.
(…) During her stint on the court, her positions nearly always mirrored Barak’s line. Among the very few exceptions, she opposed parole for Yoram Shkolnik, convicted of murdering a captured terrorist, and unlike Barak she opposed allowing Baruch Marzel to run for the 16th Knesset. (…) She was also more obstructionist than Barak about admitting new members into the court. Like him, she opposed Ruth Gavison, but, unlike Barak, also vetoed another equally-esteemed law professor, Nili Cohen. Conversely, Beinisch was the most enthusiastic advocate for appointing her friend and successor as state-prosecutor Edna Arbel to the court. (…) Yet the court also has a reputation of being aloof, overly activist and, to some minds, skewed toward one side of the political spectrum. A recent opinion poll showed that 64% of the public suspect political motivations behind Supreme Court appointments and that only 33% consider Beinisch deserving of her promotion to chief justice.

‘Absentees’ property’ laws were several laws which were first introduced as emergency ordinances issued by the Jewish leadership but which after the war were incorporated into the laws of Israel. These laws were passed in an effort to gain as much land from the indigenous people as possible while circumventing International Law.

(February 21, 2008) The High Court of Justice ruled Thursday that it is permissible for the Israel Defense Forces to build security fences around West Bank settlements, even if the barriers cut into agricultural land owned by Palestinians. Justices Dorit Beinisch, Eliezer Rivlin and Edmond Levi rejected a petition submitted two years ago by ten Palestinian residents of the West Bank opposing the construction of security fences surrounding adjacent settlement land.
