Jewish Self-Flagellation, Liberalism, A Sickness Unto Itself. Israel’s (Diaspora’s) Demented Left: A Case Study. Commentary By Adina Kutnicki

 
AS always, whenever it comes to exposing the sickness of fellow brethren, let’s just say a headache ensues. Sigh.
EVEN so, it is both an obligation and an act of love to forge ahead. This is because without said clarifying disinfectant, the damage they continuously wreck will remain indelible. Unthinkable. Unconscionable.

THAT being established, as of late, few are unaware of the increasingly irrational madness engulfing the illiberal left. Yes, so-called liberals have become synonymous with a particular sickness. A diseased mind. And it matters not a whit if one is Jewish, Christian, atheist, or what not. For the record, if one is male, female, gay, straight, or betwixt and between, the diagnosis is still the same. The same goes for one’s skin color, whether white, black, or any other hue. Sick is sick. You got that?

MADNESS. שִׁגָעוֹן.

NOW that that is cleared up, still yet, as an American-Israeli, a special burden is placed upon these shoulders to expose the insidious effects of Jewish leftism, aka liberalism. 

SUCH is the case for manifold reasons, but key and core are the knock-on effects said insanity has on the well-being of Israel, the Jewish homeland. So much so that more than one global interview covered this issue.

THUS, in the run-up to Israel’s March 2015 election, the following was noted within Can Israel Survive As The Jewish State?:

WOLFF BACHNER: And speaking of responsible world leaders, why isn’t the Prime Minster of Israel bringing up these serious issues with the nations involved in the peace process and especially with Obama and demanding an end to all military threats to Israel before Israel will negotiate again? Is he trying too hard to appease Obama and the various European talking heads, and by doing so, weakening Israel’s position even further in a peace process that is already an anti-Israeli charade?

ADINA KUTNICKI: It is this lock-step and debasing march which stopped him (during 9 years as PM, from 1996-1999 and 2009 -2015) from declaring victory over Hamas during the 2014 summer-long war, one which blanketed/blitzed the entire country with missile and rocket barrages. More indicting, instead of laying waste, years ago, to Iran’s mushrooming genocidal WMD program, he is still begging President Obama to lead the charge, knowing full well that he has no such intention. Chasing ghosts.

Inherently, he could have taken a page out of (the late) PM Menachem Begin’s playbook, when he defied President Carter and destroyed Iraq’s Osirak reactor. Now, as then, Washington issued threats to “cease and desist”, but one PM ignored said orders, while the other (continuously) caved. Statesmanship, or the lack thereof.

In the main, PM Netanyahu is best described as a “serial accommodator”, comparable to a badly battered wife who just can’t help herself from going back to her abuser, one last time, for more punishment. Now, others may tsk, tsk and opine: well, the POTUS is the big man in the arena, therefore, what can poor “Bibi” do but genuflect? Hogwash….continue reading….it gets worse.

AND especially when it comes to Israel’s leaders, many outsiders are shocked by said charge of spinelessness because they believe that tough guys are at the helm, if you will. In a pig’s eye.

IN reality, this investigative journalist has proven, in more ways than one, that the Jewish left not only rules Israel, but has a profound vise-grip on its decision-makers. Resultant, this is where the rubber meets the road, so to speak.

THEREFORE, what about the rest of the evidence? Moreover, what else is there to say? Plenty. But first things first. Onto (a few of) the proofs.

PROOF ONE:

IN this regard, in mid 2012, right out of this site’s gate, guess what took center stage? Indeed, the question became: when does delusional thinking become a pathological illness? Alas, even after HUSSEIN stabbed Israel in the heart, more U.S. (liberal/left) Rabbis supported him in 2012, an uptick from 2008. What the hell is wrong with them? Liberalism.

PROOF TWO:

AS always, the leftist media acts as a force multiplier. Concomitantly, Israel’s own resident lapdogs pile on via their dangerous twinning and sell-out of Jewish interests to Washington’s pro-Arab and Muslim camps. Nothing new under the sun.

PROOF THREE:

ATOP the above sampling of proofs, know that this American-Israeli worked closely on various Duma-like railroading of Jewish rights, in so far as the nationalist sector is concerned. Beat-downs.

BUT if more proof of the same is required, so be it: yes, having worked alongside HONENU was more than an eye-opener! Peek inside the link, if you dare. 

NEVER-ENDING, additional treachery can be found throughout these pages.Seek and you shall find.

TO wit, as soon as Duma’s fire-drama hit Israel’s airwaves, this American-Israeli understood what would reflexively go down. And it did.

AS if on orchestrated cue, Israel’s shameless leftist jackals (ranging from politicians, media blowhards, academics, social engineers from the legal sphere, and self-professed elitists from the cultural realm) sunk their teeth into certain right-wing activists within the “settlement” set and pronounced them: GUILTY, as charged! Mind you, fascist-like, due process never entered their smug, holier than thou consciousness. Resultant, as to evidence, what’s what and who’s who, well, they were not even akin to pesky details. Arrogantly, akin to a badge of honor, they wear a who the hell cares attitude. Requisite legalisms simply do not exist in their worldview. Ideology is über alles. Period.

CONSEQUENTIALLY, Duma-one year (and three arson attacks) later, hasn’t even given them pause to volte-face, nor even to apologize to those they gang-banged and tortured!

A year ago — almost to the day — on July 31, 2015, the entire country was horrified by reports of three members of the Dawabsheh family from the village of Duma being burnt to death in an arson attack on their home. Graffiti, in Hebrew script painted on the walls of the burnt out residence, led to the precipitous conclusion that the act was committed by “Jewish terrorists”. Since that deplorable attack, at least three more houses of the Dawabsheh clan have been torched –as were two prior to it–without any hint of involvement of “Jewish extremists.

But more on that later.

Rabid reverse racism?

The ghastly tragedy ignited a flurry of self-righteous handwringing and sanctimonious self-recrimination across wide sections of Israeli society — and almost all sections of the mainstream media. In a stroke, all external threats to the nation faded into near insignificance. Attention was no longer focused on the looming specter of a nuclear Iran, or the threat of radical Islam pressing against the country’s beleaguered frontiers. Suddenly the existential threat facing Israel was that of “Jewish terror” — the “menace” of a few dozen, marginalized, scraggly youth that inhabit the desolate windswept hilltops of Judea-Samaria.

Without a shred of evidence to corroborate their accusations, journalist after journalist seemed to compete in the levels of acrimony in which they attacked the assumed perpetrators. With unquestioning confidence — as unequivocal as it was unsubstantiated–regarding the collective identity of the perpetrators, and the collective guilt of Israeli society at large for the heinous nature of the act, they launched into a savage frenzy of self-flagellation.

Thus, barely two days after the arson attack, in an astounding piece of rabid reverse racism entitled “We’re no better than our enemies,” Yediot Aharonot’s Sima Kadmon lamented: …let no one say that this is a lone incident… Jewish terrorists are just the messengers; there is a well-oiled system of incitement behind them… it’s time to tell the truth, the heartbreaking but inevitable one: After a generation of right-wing rule, we have developed a race…[n]ot proud, not generous, but definitely cruel…”

“Israelis identical with ISIS”

In a flash, all distinction between Israelis and ISIS was erased.

Think I am exaggerating? Think again! Here is a sampling of the” anguished” soul-searching that became the fashionable journalistic ritual in the mainstream media.

On the very night of the dreadful crime, Ynet news’s Ron Ben Yishai had already solved the case. In “How to stop Jewish jihad,” he determined — definitively — “…this is religious-messianic terrorism, committed by people who view themselves as acting according to God’s true will. In simpler words – this is Jewish jihadism, identical in every detail to Islamic jihadism.”

In her previously mentioned piece, Sima Kadmon concurred in “agonized” agreement: “It’s over. If we thought it couldn’t happen among us, that we’re not like that, that Jews don’t do such things, that only they can murder children, go into houses and shoot a baby point blank, burn families, execute murderous terror – that’s it, it’s over. We are, we can and we do. Burn children alive, execute murderous, inhuman, incomprehensible terror. And no, we’re no better than them.”

And then there was the ever-egregious Gideon Levy, the every-day Judeophobe’s dream-come-true, who, a day after the tragedy, published in Haaretz a collective condemnation, headlined: “All Israelis are guilty of setting a Palestinian family on fire.” According to Levy: “Israelis stab gay people and burn children. There isn’t a shred of slander, the slightest degree of exaggeration, in this dry description…”

It did not take long for this barrage to bear bitter fruit. Panicked by the media assault, the political echelons and the security forces threw due process to the wind.

Little but accusations of thought-crimes”?

Within days, administrative arrests were made. Meir Ettinger, Eviatar Slonim and Mordechai Meir were incarcerated without trial, reportedly on suspicion of involvement in the Duma arson.

The arrests were accompanied by ominous warnings of the impending perils to the nation, entailed in the nefarious deeds, both past and planned, of the detainees, who were held incommunicado for extended periods, without any specific charges being brought against them. Persistent rumors of the use of harsh interrogation techniques abounded — but no charges were ever brought.

One after the other, the detainees were eventually released  Meir in early January, Slonim in early February and Ettinger in June this year.

The case of Ettinger particularly reeks of needless mean-spiritedness. In April, in a ruling upheld by the Supreme Court, he was denied — after months in detention — permission to attend the circumcision ceremony (brit mila) of his newly born son. The grounds for the denial were that he still remained “a security threat to the public.” Yet barely a month later, it was announced that he would be released — without charge!

In a disturbing review of the Ettinger episode, Tablet’s Liel Leibovitz  wrote: “Having met with government officials as well as friends and family members, and having extensively reviewed Ettinger’s public and private writing alike, I’ve found plenty that might upset people who do not share his politics but nothing to suggest that the mystically-minded smiling young man had any concrete involvement whatsoever in planning or carrying out any concrete attacks against anyone.”

He added, damningly:In fact, it is hard, reviewing the evidence, not to conclude that the charges against Ettinger amount to little else but accusations of thought-crimes.”…continue reading for the dastardly details….

MIND you, just like in all the trumped-up cases against national Zionists, even though the so-called perpetrators have all been released, the spectacle of incitement against them paid HUGE dividends. Truth be damned. In one fell swoop, regardless of innocence, they managed, once again, to paint a scarlet letter on nationalist Zionism in toto.

MAY all the inciters reap their comeuppance. Faster….faster….

SO it is with these insidious backgrounds in mind that the reader inches closer to the truth, as to how (and why) Jewish self-flagellation is a sickness unto itself. And it is with this understanding and knowledge base that one recognizes that the real danger to Israel comes from within its own belly.

OMINOUSLY, Israel’s (diaspora’s alike) leftists are prepared to sacrifice Jewish brothers and sisters from the “wrong” side of the ideological divide, nationalist Zionists, as well as the entire nation! Heaven forfend to those who stand in the way of their core religion –  liberalism.

YES, the manifest and dangerous delusions of a people under siege!

Israel’s Appeasement Gone Wild: Jews ARRESTED For “Upsetting” Arab Rioters!! Commentary By Adina Kutnicki

LET there be no doubt: Israel’s mentally besieged fantasists are running the nation’s “strategic” calculus, such that it is. And this statement is certainly not meant to be flippant, rather, it is heart-wrenching. Nevertheless, it is a realistic assessment borne out of much experience, and it is gleaned through certain in-depth investigations. The fact that this American-Israeli is laser focused on U.S. and Israeli security, rest assured, there is no time (nor inclination) to pussyfoot around. Like it or not.

RESULTANT, if it means taking PM Netanyahu (and his gaggle of associates and sycophantic followers) to the woodshed, so be it. Besides, it is nothing new on this end, and it is not for nothing. In fact, three high-profile interviews did just that: “The Reality Of Life For An Israeli Patriot,” “ISIS, Islam And Obama: Understanding The Threat To The Free World”  (the 2nd part of the interview), as well as “Can Israel Survive As The Jewish State.” In 3 words, gut-wrenching projects.

STILL yet, in order to grasp what is going on, one has to sink their teeth into the fact that Israel’s security services are second to none: The Shin Bet or GSS,  [General Security Services], Shabak, & ISA [Israel Security Agency]. Let’s just agree on this basis. Even so, and despite being able to uncover this and that (mostly, BEFORE the plot explodes), the fact remains that the PM (the buck stops at his address) refuses to outlaw a main font of said internal terror! Now, it is intrinsic to note that this terror group is embedded INSIDE Israel proper, as opposed to outside the artificially created “green line,” actually, the heart of Judea and Samaria. Never mind the fact that the aforementioned is the Jewish people’s heartland!

BE that as it may, while this main terror hydra operates – for many decades – freely throughout Israel, its base (akin to corp. headquarters) is in northern Israel, the notorious Islamic Movement.  Mind you, as always, after Jewish blood flows through the streets – which invariably traces northward – the leadership “convenes” this and that “emergency” cabinet session, discussing whether or not they should FINALLY outlaw the terror apparatus! Did you ever?? What is there to discuss?

AND just as a tidbit, a fully vetted informant inside the hottest (Islamic) spot in northern Israel (who shall forever remain nameless) passes on info to a select group of this site’s Israeli associates, effectively, trickling down in this direction. Understood? So, take what is being assessed to the mental vault, as you read on.

WHICH brings us back to the main thesis statement: “Israel’s Appeasement Gone Wild: Jews Arrested For “Upsetting” Arab Rioters.” Yes, it is absolutely the case that one must have the ability to internalize the related knock-on effects, for only then can the Orwellian nightmare – suffered by nationalist Jews under the dictates of Israel’s political leadership – be understood for what it is. In turn, this eye-washing leads to the whys and wherefores of Jews being arrested for “upsetting” Arab rioters!

Border Police storm yeshiva for non-violent protest against Arab mob. Rights group threatens lawsuit.

Border Police arrest Jews for non-violent protest
Honenu

A Beit Orot yeshiva [Torah academy] student was arrested in Jerusalem on Tuesday night, after its students retaliated against a steady stream of Arab attacks by blasting the “Shema Yisrael” prayer over a loudspeaker.

Dozens of Arab rioters set off fireworks and threw rocks at Border Police near the yeshiva. After half an hour of clashes, students retaliated by blasting the prayer in a non-violent response. 

Shockingly, instead of Border Police arresting the rioters, they broke into the school, and threatened to arrest students for “agitating Arabs.” 

The student who was arrested, a discharged soldier who until recently was a commander in a combat unit, was detained for noting to the officers that they had no legal grounds to ban the song….see video here ….

In addition, police officers attacked a student who documented the arrest.

The student was taken away and taken to the police station with his hands cuffed behind his back. He said he was put in a room without air conditioning, was placed in a corner facing the wall and was left for a long time.

Only after attorney Rehavia Pilz from the Honenu legal rights organization came to the police station did the officers agree to release him and handcuff him with his hands in front.

He was questioned on suspicion of assaulting a police officer and disturbing the public, denied the allegations and was released around 2:00 am – and only under supervision. Police also returned the speakers to the yeshiva overnight. 

Honenu responded Wednesday that the incident is a scandal. 

“Rather than act decisively against Arab rioters and terrorists hurting Jews in Jerusalem regularly, police officers act rather decisively against Jewish residents,” Honenu fumed. “Why?”

“We will consider a lawsuit against the police officers with respect to the student’s false arrest,” it added. 

AS always, HONENU is the only address protecting Jewish nationalists from their appeasement-sucking leadership. And this statement is also borne out of first-hand knowledge, that which can be found here, if interested.

September 15, after the close of the Rosh HaShana holiday, dozens of rioting Arabs launched firecrackers and threw rocks at border policemen near the Beit Orot neighborhood complex in Jerusalem. Approximately half an hour after the Arabs started launching firecrackers, several yeshiva students at Yeshivat Beit Orot decided to respond with calls of “Shema Yisrael” and other short traditional prayers through a loudspeaker towards the rioters.

The border policemen, who had not responded to either the firecrackers or the rocks, very quickly stormed the yeshiva complex and attempted to confiscate the loudspeaker, claiming that the calls were “agitating the Arabs”. One of the students, a recently discharged soldier who had served as a squad commander in a combat unit, went out to the courtyard at the entrance of the complex in which the loudspeaker is located and attempted to clarify whether the police had a valid reason to confiscate the loudspeaker. When he claimed that there was no legal cause to confiscate the loudspeaker, the policemen confronted him, took his personal weapon, a pistol, and violently detained him, twisted his arms and claimed that he was interfering with the confiscation of the loudspeaker. According to the student the commander of the police force kneed him during the detention. Policemen also assaulted a student who documented the detention.

The detained student was taken from the scene and brought to the police station while his hands were handcuffed behind his back. He reported that he was taken to a room without air conditioning and left in a corner with his face to the wall for an extended period of time with his hands still handcuffed behind his back, in violation of regulations and in a demeaning manner. Only after Honenu attorney Rehavia Piltz arrived at the police station did the policemen agree to release the student’s arms from behind his back and handcuff his hands in front.

The student was interrogated on suspicion of assaulting a policeman and disturbing the public order. He denied all charges and was released at approximately 2:00 a.m. The policemen returned the loudspeaker to the yeshiva during the course of the night.
Honenu: “Instead of acting decisively against rioting Arabs and terrorists who injure Jews in Jerusalem on a regular basis, the policemen act decisively against Jewish residents. The claim that calls of “Shema Yisrael” through a loudspeaker towards dozens of terrorists already throwing rocks and launching firecrackers agitate them is outrageous, and indicates the mood of the police. We will consider filing a suit against the policemen for the false detention of the student.”

Honenu attorney Rehavia Piltz stated that, “It is a shame that the police exhibited decisiveness when dealing with yeshiva students who operated a loudspeaker, but inactivity and weakness when dealing with rioting Arabs who morning and night launch firecracker barrages at Yeshivat Beit Orot.”

MIND you, to assess that Israeli appeasement begets terror – which leads directly to countless dead and maimed Jews – is a no-brainer. No strategic calculus is required for said determinate analysis.

TO wit, it must finally be recognized: Israel’s PM (despite his perpetual tough-guy scowl and fiery oratory) dances to two main tunes, Washington’s dictates and the UN’s. In fact, in relationship to Judaism’s holiest site, the Temple Mount, the UN has decreed: “Keep Jewish Payer Ban On Temple Mount!”

IMAGINE, if you will, the utter gall, the chutzpah. Yet, what did PM Netanyahu say in response? “Netanyahu to Ban: We’re Maintaining Status Quo on Temple Mount.”

HMM…what exactly does THAT mean? Well, as always, Jewish prayer will NOT be tolerated at Judaism’s holiest site, that’s what. Indeed, it is in response to said Jewish self debasement that Arabs/Muslims ratchet up their terror. As a matter of record, Israel’s erstwhile “peace” partner recently incited

Meanwhile, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas glorified Palestinians fighting Israelis in Jerusalem and called for Palestinians to prevent Jews from entering Al-Aqsa with “everything in our power,” Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) reports.

“The Al-Aqsa [Mosque] is ours… and they have no right to defile it with their filthy feet. We will not allow them to, and we will do everything in our power to protect Jerusalem… We bless every drop of blood that has been spilled for Jerusalem, which is clean and pure blood, blood spilled for Allah, Allah willing. Every martyr (Shahid) will reach Paradise, and everyone wounded will be rewarded by Allah,” Abbas said in a speech, segments of which were aired on official PA TV and posted on his website.

IS PM Netanyahu merely tone-deaf, or is something else going on?

REGARDLESS, it is due to all of the above (plus so much more) that this investigative journalist reported the following, yet, it is just the tip of the spear.

SPEAR ONE:

INDUBITABLY, Israel’s mentally besieged leaders and Jewish self-flagellation is a sickness unto itself. No kidding.

SPEAR TWO:

WHICH leads us to the collaboration between Islamists and leftists – some of whom include Jews – inside and outside Israel. They are twin western poisons.

SPEAR THREE:

ALAS, is it any wonder that Islamic supremacy is triumphing, and with no end in sight. PM Netanyahu, what say you?

SANS a scintilla of a doubt, this site defies anyone to argue with the basis of the stated thesis: “Israel’s Appeasement Has Gone (Dangerously) Wild!” 

(Even as Jewish blood continuously spills due to Arab terror, Israel’s leftist media rag(s) opine: Jews who protest, calling for “revenge”…נקמה….are deteriorating into anti-Arab mobs!)

MAY the G-d of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob have mercy on us….save us from our leadership’s appeasement and the enemies at our throats!

Tair Rada’s Murder Case, Israeli Teen: A Review. Evidence Ignored/Fabricated. Pathologists Threatened. What’s Going On? By Adina Kutnicki

[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=62N3kHjCiV8…pay particular attention to the 19:47 mark…]

INHERENTLY, the “scales of justice” veer irreversibly off kilter when a victim’s killer roams free. This is doubly the case when an innocent defendant pays the price. Justice denied on a two-tier level. A grave miscarriage. A perversion of the legal system.

{at “Patriotic Israeli” – http://www.kr8.co.il/BRPortal/br/P102.jsp?arc=978318}

FULL Disclosure: As an investigative journalist and expert in the Muslim Brotherhood/Islamic Jihad, I have the utmost respect for those who secure law and order. Let there be no doubt. Besides, anyone who knows me would attest to the same, both on a personal and professional level.

UNDOUBTEDLY, the risks in bringing dangerous suspects to heel are graver than most realize. Life and death. Not only that, while living in the U.S., I spent a good part of my adulthood standing squarely behind the Police and Prosecutor’s aisle, to one degree or another.Thus, this particular case is absolutely an anomaly. It merits special significance. Attention. To wit, I am aligning with the defense. A first. 

IN this regard, the justice system, if operating properly, has no greater burden, other than to obtain justice for the victim. This is their sworn and moral duty, regardless of outside pressures. Mission Number One. On the other side of the scale, the incarceration of an innocent person is a grave injustice. Unfortunately, said deleterious outcome transpires when a compromised team of investigators, coupled with an out of control Prosecutor’s office, toil to satisfy other “masters”. Intolerable. 

INHERENTLY, the Prosecutor’s office, at least in a functioning democracy, above all else, must seek justice, not merely gain a conviction, whatever the costs. Furthermore, they are not allowed to adjudicate in line with, in service of, the desired verdict of the Police and Judiciary – justice be damned. Understood?

CONSEQUENTIALLY, for redress to be truly served, the perpetrator must ultimately be brought before a Court of Law, and in a timely manner with all due process adhered to. Resultant, if found guilty, a sentence must be rendered and commensurate with the crime at hand. Few would argue otherwise, unless one is living by the “laws of the jungle” or is a committed Islamist. Same calculus.

BE that as it may, as an American-Israeli (living in Israel since 2008), I am intimately familiar with America’s criminal justice system. In fact, my area of studies concentrated in criminal justice/law, in tandem with geo-politics. A two-tier nexus exists in this arena; familial-wise, plus professional access to high-level justice-related contacts. 

SEGUEING over to Israel’s legal system, well, let’s just say that there are differences. It can be akin to, for lack of a better descriptor, a balagan…בלגן…topsy-turvydom. Incontrovertibly, said contrasting systems became glaringly/disturbingly obvious while reporting (investigating) on behalf of HONENU; a national legal defense organization, one which provides legal aid to Israeli soldiers and civilians in distress.

NEVERTHELESS, regardless of locale, little is more heinous to this investigative journalist (blogger), other than the murder of a child – willful or accidental. As a matter of record, the crime of drunk driving – often leaving a string of mangled bodies in its wake – is an intolerable crime, even though usually deemed by the courts as “unintentional.” Not on this end. After all, dead is dead. 

BACK to the case at hand…the butchering of 13-year-old Tair Rada, an Israeli on the cusp of her teenage years.  Image result for pics of tair rada murder victim

TRAGICALLY, in 2006, a beautiful young girl was viciously murdered in the northern Israeli town of Katzrin, Golan Heights. She was found in her school’s bathroom, Nofey Golan High School. This is clearly not in dispute.

HOWEVER, even though one (of several) suspect was eventually convicted, the case has been plagued with so many irregularities/inconsistencies – and this is a generous assessment – the Supreme Court intervened. Nevertheless, even with said intercession, the same (partial) judge retried the case! Outrageous. Prejudicial. Biased.

AS reported, May 5, 2014:

Roman Zadorov, 32, was first convicted in 2010 of the murder of Tair Rada, 13, in the Katzrin local council. The Supreme Court then ordered the Nazareth District Court to retry the case. Six weeks ago, the court confirmed the previous verdict.

Zadorov’s attorneys, Tel Aviv district public defender Elkana Leist and Dr. Itai Hermalin of the Tel Aviv University Law Clinic, said that the district court made a mistake when it chose to accept the expert opinion of Dr. Constantin Zeitzav for the prosecution over that of the defense’s expert witness, pathologist Dr. Maya Forman Resnik.

Leist and Hermalin want the Supreme Court to accept Resnik’s opinion that the cut on Rada’s chin came from a serrated knife. When Zadorov confessed at the time, he mentioned a box cutter. They also want the court to take into account that the same judges who had heard their client’s original case also heard the appeal.

According to the defense, the claim by another expert witness for the prosecution, police Superintendent Yaron Shor, that bloody shoe prints found at the scene were Zadorov’s, was “weak,” and there is no proof that the shoe prints belonged to Zadorov.

ACCORDINGLY, Dr. Haim Sadovsky explained how innocent people – before they know it – confess to the most heinous crimes. Basically, as a by-product of massive psychological pressure (brought to bear by high intensity interrogation techniques, certainly valuable when a suspect is guilty) confessions are elicited – guilt or innocence notwithstanding. Simply put, when an onlooker rightfully queries: Why would an innocent person confess, the answer (for the most part) lies within the body’s reflexive physiological response (for this discussion, it is too complicated to go into specific components) to a seemingly hopeless and pressurized situation.

NOT only that, before Zadarov’s trial his cellmate chatted him up, on instructions from the police. Simply put, he was a jailhouse informant, another coercive method used to build cases. Thereby, Zadarov theorized: Perhaps, in an unconscious state, he may have committed the crime! At this juncture, he didn’t know if he was coming or going. In plain-speak, he would have admitted to being “Jack the Ripper”, if asked. After all, the Police said they had DNA/forensic evidence, alas, who was he, a poor and undocumented laborer, to argue with these seasoned professionals. Besides, they were packing heat.

AS you will soon see, indeed, the Police and the Prosecution LIED! In Hebrew, fabricators are coined: שקרנים. I call them: Bastards.

NOW, let’s get to the heart of the case, the Exhibits.

EXHIBIT A – CONFESSION

IN fact, there were so many severe issues with the case, even his so-called “confession” was incontestably tainted. Let’s start with that, since the Police and Prosecution believe that this “admission” sealed his fate. NOT so fast.

FIRSTLY, a backgrounder: Some of us are familiar with the methods utilized to elicit false confessions via intensely coercive interrogative techniques. You know, the oft bandied about “good cop/bad cop” tag team approach. Oh dear, it’s not just a tactic used in tv shows. “It be” reality. How do I know this? Well, straight from the horse’s mouth, so to speak. Several interrogators (seasoned Detectives, from both the U.S. and Israel) admitted as much, albeit off the record, when interfacing with them for this and that investigative info. Let’s just term it: Quid pro quos.

SPECIFICALLY, according to several credible experts, the following explains the physiological and psychological components of a false confession. Hence, the creation of the highly successful Innocence Project, a U.S. non-profit to counter these miscarriages of justice. 

In an effort to find out what leads innocent people to making false confessions, researchers from Iowa State University launched a study that measured numerous indicators of stress, such as blood pressure, heart rate and nervous system activity.

The results showed that stress levels increased for all participants when they were first accused, but they were significantly lower for the wrongly accused. Researchers said that’s a concern because it can make those who are innocent less likely to vigorously defend themselves in a real interrogation.

“The innocent are less stressed because they believe their innocence is going to protect them and they think everything is going to be OK, so there is no reason to get worked up over this accusation,” said Stephanie Madon, an associate professor of psychology and researcher for the study.

“But if you’re going into a police interrogation and you’re not on your guard, then you could make decisions that down the line will put you at risk for a false confession. Because once you talk to police, you’re opening up the chance that they’re going to use manipulative and coercive tactics,” Madon added.

Madon, along with Max Guyll, an assistant professor of psychology, said that minimization is one of those tactics used in interrogations and the tactic they used in their study.

As Guyll explained it, by minimizing the severity of a crime, investigators try to convince the person they are questioning that it’s in their best interest to confess. Although it’s initially easy for the person to defend his or her self, they start to wear down over time.

“If you’re brought in late at night and kept for several hours, you’re exhausted, and you have these investigators who are in a position of power. They’re challenging everything you say and they’re not accepting anything you say,” Guyll said. “That pressure starts to take a toll physiologically and there’s a greater chance you’ll give up and confess.”

As one can imagine, once an innocent person ends up making a confession to a crime they did not commit, the stress they previously minimized starts taking a toll.

THIS same critical aspect was deeply explored in Dr. Haim Sadovsky’s book: “Innocent Condemned.” Specifically, it was penned in relation to Zadorov’s confession because his interrogators not only menaced him, but they “led” him in the direction they wanted him to go!

INTRINSICALLY, several layers of lies “supported” the confession. Compromised. 

NUMBER ONE – POLYGRAPH LIES
HAVING passed the ubiquitous lie detector test (imagine that, an unsophisticated laborer, somehow, knew how to beat the lie detector, as if), his interrogators informed him that he failed! You got that? In any case, his legal team has a written document, one which states that the Police lied to him to get him to confess –  http://www.kr8.co.il/BRPortal/br/P102.jsp?arc=563003. Twisted.  
IT becomes even more Orwellian: The Court also has proof that Zadorov passed the lie detector test  http://www.kr8.co.il/BRPortal/br/P102.jsp?arc=977550 . Truth be told, those involved with these particular outrages should be locked up, not Zadorov. Nevertheless, the Police doubled down: Since lie detector results are not qualified as “proof” in Court, therefore, they do not have to give his defense team a copy. Say whaaat? Dear reader, are you sensing a pattern of bad behavior? Malfeasance, at the very least. 
NUMBER TWO – CONTRIBUTING FACTORS (TO CONFESSION)
ALREADY in a hyper-state of confusion – resulting from contributory physiological/psychological stressors – the interrogators “led” him through the crime scene. In other words, as the following video will demonstrate – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=grIuuOpHDPE – Zadarov indeed had detailed knowledge of the crime scene. For heaven’s sake, he was schooled by his interrogators! So, is it any wonder that they crowed: Yes, he is “guilty”, only the killer would know such intimate details! They have no shame…no standing…at least, in the Court of public opinion.
NUMBER THREE – ALIBI VS TIME OF DEATH
PER any murder investigation (whether in the U.S., Israel, or another western system), the requisite questions are: Where were you during such and such time, and with whom? In this regard, Zadorov complied and told the truth: He was on the phone with his employer DURING the time that the murder took place. For the record, he produced his cellular bills as back up.

WELL, since they couldn’t hang him on their own established time frame, what did they do? They changed the time of death to disprove his alibi! Yes, the Police, at 18:01, are in full lying mode – 

MOST essentially, the Prosecution and the Judge backed up every piece of tainted evidence. Kangaroo “justice”, anyone?
   

EXHIBIT B – SHOE PRINT

INCREDIBLY, the Prosecution’s most “solid” evidence, a purported shoe print, was best summed up by an expert among experts: Non-existent. Can you believe it? You better. 

ACCORDING to William Bodziak, a Special Agent for the F.B.I., the shoe print evidence (I repeat) didn’t exist, at least in relation to Zadarov! For the record, this link is germane and explanatory – http://www.kr8.co.il/BRPortal/br/P102.jsp?arc=621191.

READERS, let these bombshells sink in. But hang on…there’s more. Adding fuel to the Prosecution’s misfiring, not only is Bodziak world-renowned in this arena of forensicshe taught shoe print forensics to Israel’s so-called experts ! Credo quia absurdum. Again, can you believe it?

Dr. Bodziak has written a book on the topic of footware identification W.J. Bodziak, Footwear impression evidence: detection, recovery and examination (2nd ed.), CRC Press, London (2000).Between O.J. Simpson’s civil and criminal trials, pictures showing O.J. Simpson in Burno Magli shoes were discovered. The existance of these shoes was evidence admitted to the civil trial, when the Mr. Bodziack restated his testimony. There were multiple pictures produced as evidence from different cameras, since it was alleged the first pictures were forged.

“William Bodziack, an FBI agent and one of the country’s most foremost experts on shoe print impressions, testified that the prints were left by Bruno Magli shoes, style Lorenzo, incorporating a Silga sole with a waffle-type print. The footwear, manufactured in Italy, retailed for $160 per pair and was sold by only 40 retailers across America. In all, only 300 pairs of size 12 (Simpson’s size) were ever sold. Only 9% of the population wore size 12. Simpson had denied ever owing a pair, calling them, “ugly-ass shoes.”However, on September 26th, 1993, AP photographer Harry Scull Jr. had taken pictures of Simpson wearing these exact shoes at the Rich Stadium in New York.” 

EXHIBIT C – DNA 

DESPITE a VERY BLOODY crime scene, the defendant’s DNA was nowhere to be found. Incredulously, more than 100 DNA samples of hair in blood and fingerprints in blood were found on the scene, yet NONE of them belonged to Zadarov. How could this be, if he was the killer? Was he “ghost-like?” Trenchantly, to whom did the treasure trove of evidence belong? Could it be the real murderer(s)?

INCREDIBLY, the DNA samples matched Rada’s “friends” and an “unknown” male. Hmm. How did it reach the crime scene? Could it have been “transferred” by the real killer? Proper due diligence should have ensured that all angles were explored, come what may. The Police, non-deterred, told Zadarov that the DNA was his and that was that. As detailed, false confessions are elicited under EXTREME psychological pressure, with attendant physiological breakdowns becoming the coup de grace.

NOW, one has to wonder, why did they ignore the linkage to her “friends?” 

 ALAS, even the victim’s bereaved mother, Ilana, wasn’t buying the dog and pony “justice” show. She had serious doubts that Zadarov was the killer. The evidence just didn’t support the Prosecution’s case. Period.
MORE pointedly, she repeated her doubts throughout the trial, and even during the investigatory phase. In fact, one such media representative (who asked for my assistance, to get to the bottom of things) has interviewed Tair’s grief-stricken mother several times (plus many others), and she is sticking by her convictions that Zadarov is innocent. Mind-blowing.Tair Rada’s MotherIlana Rada, said Monday that she had lost all faith in the police and that she did not believe that Roman Zadarov, was the killer. Rada said she believed that other children had killed Ta’ir.Rada added that she believed children belonging to a satanist cult, of Blood Libel, killed her daughter.
ADDED into this fiery mix, the crime scene at Nofey Golan High School was such that the preponderance of evidence led in the direction of students, some of whom were her “friends”, as mentioned.
NOT only that, whereas her group of intimates were generally in good communication with her, this was not the case for about a week before her death. Highly suspicious. According to Tair’s mother, TOTAL SILENCE ensued. A blackout of sorts. Why?
MOST tellingly, one of these same “friends” ran away from school, right after Tair was murdered. Folks, pay heed: As do most moms of teens, the victim’s had a particular insight into her daughter’s relationships. Apparently, she had concerns about some emerging jealously factors towards her daughter. In a nutshell, she had reason to worry. So, when the aforementioned girl took flight, Tair’s mother demanded that the Police find her and conduct an interrogation. Strangely, once she returned she was questioned, albeit in a totally non-serious manner. Could it be that this girl’s familial relationship, to a Senior Police Officer, had something to do with her “light-handed” treatment? It’s a fair proposition. Agreed?
ANYONE who follows the news has heard about teens killing teens, whether male or female. Yes, a particular case is worth noting/viewing: Two Teens Allegedly Stab Best Friend To Death. 
FOR added insight, Nofey Golan High School has a proven record of severe violence, even though noted for some academic achievements. They include: Knifing, prostitution, drugs, burning teachers cars, you name it…peer within:  http://www.kr8.co.il/BRPortal/br/P102.jsp?arc=153873
 Nofey ain’t Disneyland!
      
 EXHIBIT D – THE KNIFE
CONSEQUENTIALLY, even in false confessions, there will be gaping holes, despite coaching by the police. In this instance, Zadorov referred to an instrument he used for his employment – a “Japanese” knife. True to form, the Police and Prosecution lied in order to match his false confession! Henceforth, smooth-bladed became their new watchword.
More than two years after the conviction of handyman Roman Zadorov for the 2006 murder of 13-year-old Tair Rada in Katzrin, the Supreme Court has ordered the case reopened.The Nazareth District Court was instructed to hear the testimonies of two defense forensic experts.The internationally renowned American forensics expert William Bodziak, whose specialty is footwear impressions, will argue that contrary to police claims, not only is there no match between stains on the victim’s jeans and Zadorov’s shoe, but that there is no shoe print at all on the bloodied garment.Pathologist Dr. Maya Forman-Reznik will assert that the murder weapon was a serrated knife and not the smooth-bladed box-cutter of police contentions.The court’s intervention must be welcomed by all Israelis who care to see justice served – and that without presuming to opine on Zadorov’s guilt or innocence.From the outset too much in this case aroused extreme discomfort about both police and prosecution conduct.Their strident opposition to reviewing the case, despite the possibility that exculpatory evidence might be presented, should in itself prompt more than a few troubling questions. 
EXHIBIT E – FORENSIC PATHOLOGISTS
DESPERATE to pin the murder on Zaradov, two well-respected forensic experts entered the fray, and raised the stakes even further.
FIRSTLY, Dr. Maya Forman-Reznick wrote a report about the knife and attested to the Court that it was indeed serrated. This finding was diametrically opposed to the police’s assertions. Resultant, the Judge became incensed at the pathologist. In fact, the Court threatened to get her fired from her top post! Did you ever?
ENTER: Dr. Chen Kugel, head of the Medical Juridical Institute. Lo and behold, this week, he concurred with Dr. Maya Forman-Reznick: Tair was murdered with a knife that has teeth (http://www.kr8.co.il/BRPortal/br/P102.jsp?arc=976818)! However, the Prosecution says that she was murdered with a “Japanese” knife that is smooth-bladed (http://www.nenohi.co.jp/en/wa.html). Again, all roads must fit with the “confession.”
PRAY tell, why would the Prosecution fight to keep Israel’s Chief Pathologist from testifying as to his professional findings? Curious and curiouser…
ALAS, their hammer-like blows to Israel’s system of justice worsen, if you dare imagine. Just this week the Prosecution pressured Dr. Chen Kugel – as Israel’s Chief Pathologist at the Abu Kabir Institute of Forensic Medicine – to change his testimony! Essentially, they demanded that he must lie – or else. Effectively, in order to preserve “public trust” in the system, it was “necessary” for him to lie, otherwise, his testimony will lead to an overturned verdict. Indeed, this case is demonstrative of a judicial system which has gone haywire. So much so, they threatened their Chief Pathologist! It is nothing short of criminal conduct.
BUT as a professional with integrity, of course, Dr. Chen Kugel refused to perjure himself. Outraged, he went to the media. Bravo. A man after my own heart.
MOST dangerously, within Israel’s justice system there exists an “unholy trinity”; the Prosecution props up the Police (regardless of non-kosher evidence), and the Judiciary and the Prosecution act in lockstep. In any sphere of accountability, the above is a clear violation of a Judge’s sworn oath to preside over a non-tainted trial. Intrinsically, freedom relies upon an independent judiciary, whereby the evidence of a case stands, or falls, on its own merits. Anything less becomes a slippery slope down the abyss.
EGREGIOUSLY, further compromising Israel’s justice system (to the detriment of the defendant, but to the benefit of the prosecution and police), reportedly, due to a lack of “space”, valuable DNA is destroyed. Unconscionable.
IN essence, as imperfect as the U.S. system is, DNA (forensic) evidence is preserved, even for many years after a crime has been committed.Thus, truly innocent people have been freed through the safeguarding of said vital materials. In fact, “cold cases” are solved through the storage of DNA/forensics from crime scenes.
AND knowing my way around Israel’s legal domain, well, I recognize that hell will freeze over before the prosecutor’s office admits (under their own steam) they incarcerated the wrong person. It ain’t gonna happen – even if her mama demands true justice for her beloved daughter, as well as for Zadarov.
STILL, that doesn’t mean that the rest of us should pretend that what is isn’t, thereby, making justice that much more elusive.To the contrary. 
AS is said in Israel, sach ha’kol … at the end of it all …סך הקול 
… an innocent man is rotting in jail; one who was railroaded to fit the narrative and to “close the case.” Unconscionable.
A travesty of injustice. That’s a wrap – for now.
