BGU Would-be Murderer not to be Prosecuted - Political Corruption in Israel's Attorney General's Office

1. Leftist Attorney General Circles the Wagons to defend Leftist who
Incited to Murder

For those who think I am exaggerating when I say that Israel has a
corrupt politicized dual justice system, one for leftists and the
other for everyone else, then just consider the following news item:

You may recall the reports here about one Eyal Nir, a far-leftist
anti-Israel lecturer in chemistry at Ben Gurion "University," the Bir
Zeit of the Negev. Nir posted calls and threats to murder
non-leftists on his Facebook page. The same Attorney General's Office
that rounds up and arrests Rabbis by the bushel if they dare to
recommend that people read a book of which the Leftists disapprove was
petitioned to prosecute Nir. Today it was announced that Nir will not
be prosecuted.

And don't hold your breath waiting for Rivka Carmi, the Cabbagehead
president of Ben Gurion "University," to do anything about Nir either.

Case Closed Against Inciting Lecturer

The State Attorney's Office announced, Thursday, that it was closing
the file of a Ben Gurion University lecturer who had called, on his
Facebook page, to "break the necks" of right wing participants in last
year's Jerusalem Day Flag Dance parade. The announcement cited lack of
The Legal Forum for the Land of Israel, which filed the complaint has
announced that it will appeal the "surprising" decision. "Law
enforcement cannot ignore such a blatant incitement to murder, said
Forum Director, Nachi Eyal.
Here is the earlier story about Nir's incitement to murder:

Ben Gvir: Protest 'Victim' Was Really a Leftist Radical

Reports that right wing activists beat an 'alleged' African illegal
alien later revealed the 'victim' was a radical Israeli leftist.
David Lev
Media reports in Israel on Thursday morning said that protesters at a
rally Wednesday night demanding the government do something about
illegal African migrants had attacked a passerby from among the
illegal aliens.
Several reports said that right-wing protesters beat the African,
while others said that they just cursed and insulted him.
But as it turned out, the "passerby" was not an an African migrant.
Actually, said right-wing activist Itamar Ben-Gvir, the "victim" is an
Israeli, an Ethiopian Jew. He apparently went to the protest in order
to create an incident for the cameras so it would appear that
right-wing activists were harassing and attacking Africans.
The leftist "victim," Hanania Vanda, is an archaeology student at Ben
Gurion University and a self-declared radical leftist, Ben Gvir said.
Vanda has allegedly written that he envisions "radical" solutions to
several of the burning issues in Israeli society, including the
illegal alien issue. Ben Gvir said Vanda presented himself as a
Sudanese refugee on Wednesday night, and joined a group of illegal
Africans congregating near the protest by residents of south Tel Aviv
against the ongoing crime by the Africans and lack of enforcement by
He then moved towards the body of the protest and began shouting out
epithets and curses, apparently in an attempt to incite the
protesters. While some of the protesters responded in kind, no one hit
Vanda, Ben Gvir said, and none of the footage taken by television and
other media showed that Vanda had been struck.
"Vanda tried to pull a fast one, and unfortunately some media outfits
allowed themselves to be suckered into believing his story, failing to
check the facts," Ben Gvir said. "While the easy story for the media
is the one they tried to portray of 'right wing activists attack
Africans,' the fact is that the photos and video do not back this up.
Actually, when Vanda finally admitted that he was an Ethiopian Jew, he
was welcomed by the protesters."
Ben Gvir also protested the fact that many of the news outlets that
reported the "attack" did not seek to get a response from him or other
right-wing activists who actually participated in the demonstration.
"I cannot remember an incident in which right-wing activists
complained that they were attacked by leftists that the media did not
follow through and seek the other side of the story, as they reported
what they said were the 'claims' of the right wing victims. When it
comes to claims against the right though, anything goes – there is no
investigation by the media, and they don't even bother looking at the
materials that they themselves filmed."
