'Suspects foster anarchy'

During appeal hearing on release of five radical settlers defendants accused of breaking into Epraim Spatial Brigade base, State Prosecution claims suspects are 'ideological offenders who consider authorities as kingdom of evil'.

Amihy Zoaretz, a soldier from the Paratroopers Brigade's 890th Battalion was arrested by IDF Military Police earlier this week on suspicion he disclosed information to right-wing activists who were charged with organizing last month's raid on the Ephraim Spatial Brigade base in the West Bank.
In his facebook page he published statuses calling for 'death to leftist traitors,Arabs and policemen' prior to arrest over involvement in Ephraim Brigade base raid .
On his Facebook wall Zoaretz shared the following statuses in recent months: "I've come to the conclusion that the Maccabees were the 'price tag' of today," "Death to all leftist traitors and to our Arab enemies," "We should burn all the Arabs and transfer them to the sky," "We've gone out to Kahane in Tapuach, this time we'll try not to get arrested," "May all the policemen, Yassam people and especially the Civil Administration burn!! Revenge." Zoaretz also wrote against the Gilad Shalit swap deal, calling to "kill all the leftists including the Shalit family."

"Gathering information from soldiers can be destructive and can prove detrimental to the military's robustness," the State Prosecution said during a Supreme Court hearing in an appeal filed by the State following the Jerusalem District Court's decision to release the five defendants suspected of involvement in breaking into the Ephraim Spatial Brigade base last month.





According to the indictment, Akiva HaCohen, Elad Meir, Epraim Chaykin, Meir Etinger and David Eliyahu from Jerusalem planned to thwart the eviction of West Bank outposts by entering military bases and clashing with IDF soldiers.

The defendants were also accused of involvement in rioting at the Ephraim Spatial Brigade base, as part of their efforts to prevent the demolition of outposts.



Senior Assistant State Attorney Shlomi Abramson claimed that the case was not about "the Right against the Left. This case does not deal with freedom of expression, or demonstration. The defendants decided to undermine government decisions in illegitimate ways, and chose violent and dangerous means to achieve their goal."

According to Abramson, "The defendants' acts went far beyond singing, dancing and handing out flyers. Their aim was to harm (the army) and bring about anarchy.



"These are ideological offenders that do not fear the lettr of the law or take into account the authorities. As far as they are concerned (the government) is the enemy, and they are at war with it. They see the authorities as the kingdom of evil," he stated.



Attorney Adi Keidar, representing the defendants, stated on their behalf that they understand that continuing with their activity as described in the indictment is forbidden, and any violation on their part would lead to immediate incarceration.

The defendants then stood up one by one and told the judge: "We understand that we mustn't make any use of the media in any way related to the activities described in the indictment, or engage in any other activity that relates to thwarting the eviction of outposts."












Earlier on Thursday, Meanwhile, soldier Amihy Zoaretz, who is suspected of passing information on the activity of the military to right-wing activists, was released from custody.




Amihy Zoaretz, a soldier from the Paratroopers Brigade's 890th Battalion was arrested by Military Police earlier this week on suspicion he disclosed information to right-wing activists who were charged with organizing last month's raid on the Ephraim Spatial Brigade base in the West Bank.



The investigation against Zoaretz is still ongoing. The soldier is not cooperating with investigators and, according to his attorney, has denied the allegations. However, his Facebook page reveals his radical views.




On his Facebook wall Zoaretz shared the following statuses in recent months: "I've come to the conclusion that the Maccabees were the 'price tag' of today," "Death to all leftist traitors and to our Arab enemies," "We should burn all the Arabs and transfer them to the sky," "We've gone out to Kahane in Tapuach, this time we'll try not to get arrested," "May all the policemen, Yassam people and especially the Civil Administration burn!! Revenge."






Even his profile picture features the symbol of far-Right party Kach, which was banned in 1994 and is considered a terror organization. His Facebook wall is filled with statuses voicing his critical opinion of leftists, Arabs and the razing of outposts by the IDF.



Zoaretz also wrote against the Gilad Shalit swap deal, calling to "kill all the leftists including the Shalit family."

  • What funny is that both the anti-Israel people like in here, and those radical settlers has the same hate towards the state of Israel and the IDF, each one from the other side.

    You (Israel haters) and them are pretty much alike and are being fed from the same source of hate and radicalism.

      Its not as simple as that though is it? That's like saying a socialist and a fascist are 'pretty much alike' because they both disagree with mainstream or centrist policies. I like your posts but you're using this scenario to draw a comparison to people you disagree with in a way that doesn't work for me

      I was talking about the hate, not the agendas.
