Justice Unhinged.

Reading an op-ed piece like this makes my blood boil.

Samir Kuntar is a monster. He may never have deserved a life.

It's time we let him out of prison.

Not for his sake. For ours.

For the sake of three families.

Haaretz never ceases to amaze me.

Their writers don't challenge, they provoke. Their reporters don't tantalize, they goad. And their editorials, representative of a very narrow minority opinion, shout out from their pages, pretending to be the moral compass for Israel.

In ways that cannot be counted, most of which went unnoticed by the media and the world, the one institution that got Israel through the war was the family.

The family may be the one thing Israel has ever gotten right.

It is surely the one thing that saves Israel from itself.

It may be the only thing that matters.

Sounds acceptable? Haaretz is just reeling you in for catch.

It was families that gave shelter, food, and support to thousands of Israelis in the north routed from their homes by Katyusha rockets. It was families that gave their soldier children, soldier spouses, soldier brothers and sisters, soldier fathers and even grandfathers, the strength to keep on, despite their betrayal by the befuddlement of their government and their generals.

Before the war began, young men from three of these families were patrolling Israel's borders, Israel's pre-1967 war borders, on Israeli soil, when gunmen from Hamas in Gaza and Hezbollah in Lebanon, invaded and took them hostage.

We owe it to their families to get them back. We owe it to their brothers in arms, as well, to do everything it takes to get them back. Soldiers and their families have to know that their leaders will risk their very political careers, if need be, to pay the price to get them back.

Even if I disagree, one should be able to argue that negotiations with terrorists to return hostages is a viable option...but Haaretz goes on...

The price will be awful. The price to families will be awful. In the case of Gilad Shalit, kidnapped on June 25, the price may be 1,000 or more Palestinian prisoners, some guilty of having tried to murder Israelis, some perhaps guilty of having succeeded. The families of Israeli victims of terrorism will fall victim to a new phase of torture.

In the case of Ehud Goldwasser and Eldad Regev, abducted by Hezbollah on July 12, the price will be even worse. It will include the release of Samir Kuntar. In 1979, Kuntar led a group of gunmen on an attack in Nahariya, during which broke into an apartment and took hostage Danny Haran, 28, and his four-year-old daughter, Einat.

"I will never forget the joy and the hatred in their voices as they swaggered about hunting for us, firing their guns and throwing grenades," Danny's wife, Smadar, wrote three years ago in an account in the Washington Post, describing in part how she hid from the terrorists with her other daughter, Yael, just two.

"I knew that if Yael cried out, the terrorists would toss a grenade into the crawl space and we would be killed. So I kept my hand over her mouth, hoping she could breathe. As I lay there, I remembered my mother telling me how she had hidden from the Nazis during the Holocaust. "This is just like what happened to my mother," I thought.

"As police began to arrive, the terrorists took Danny and Einat down to the beach. There, according to eyewitnesses, one of them shot Danny in front of Einat so that his death would be the last sight she would ever see. Then he smashed my little girl's skull in against a rock with his rifle butt. That terrorist was Samir Kuntar.

"By the time we were rescued from the crawl space, hours later, Yael, too, was dead. In trying to save all our lives, I had smothered her."

So what's my problem with this article? The bombshell is in the next line:

Samir Kuntar is our hostage.

Excuse me?

Samir Kuntar is our hostage.

Are you insane?

Samir Kuntar is our hostage.

What moral equivalence are you drawing between the lives of our IDF soldiers and the bloodthirsty terrorist, Samir Kuntar? Our hostage???

Samir Kuntar is our hostage. His release will do great injury to all those who loved and love Danny and Einat Haran. But it's time that he be released.

It's a moral issue pitting families against families. But we cannot ignore the families of the living, and of the living themselves.

Last week, in response to the direct appeals of the families of Gilad, Ehud, and Eldad, Israelis by the tens of thousands flooded the heart of Tel Aviv to appeal to the Ehud Olmert to do everything he could to secure their release.

There had never been a demonstration like it. The rally brought together the activist right and left, the solid center, the secular hip, the settler religious, the haredi, the elderly, the newborn in a sling, the Shenkenite, the professor, the frecha, the arss.

The rally had nothing to do with freeing Samir Kuntar, and to infer that the unity of the rally means that there was unified support to release a terrorist, is abhorrent.

Wait, you may say -- but this Op-Ed piece agrees that Kuntar is a monster....he just needs to be released to secure the freedom of our soldiers...

Read on:

In the end, it will be pressure from families, from Palestinian families, from Lebanese families, from Syrian families, from Israelis families, that will turn the tide in favor of peace in this region.

This is our fate, our curse, and, perhaps, our only hope: The structures of Israel, Lebanon, and the Palestinian Authority may bear the trappings of modern government, but they remain fundamentally tribal societies.


So that's it in a nutshell. We are all families...and that is our hope for peace.

The families of Palestinian terrorists, Lebanese terrorists, and Syrian terrorists are all "families", just like the families of kidnapped IDF soldiers.

The terrorists who teach their children to hate, to blow themselves up, to wish for jihad against the Jews...Haaretz equates those families with the parents of IDF soldiers.

Haaretz makes a mockery of justice and advocates the adage that crime pays.

Golda Meir was wrong; She said, "There will only be peace when the Arabs love their children more than they hate us."

What she meant to say was, "There will only be peace in Israel when we love our soldiers and civilians more than we love the enemy." **

Then Yigal Amir is a hostage too, to eventually be traded for something.

I guess Omri Sharon (remember him?) will be a hostage when he eventually goes to jail, to be traded for something when the remnants of the Sharon family wants him freed.

Ehud Olmert too?

When someone has no morals and can say we should free terrorists because we are only keeping them in jail as hostages as opposed to either punishing them, or keeping them locked up so they can't commit more evil acts then anything becomes possible, permissable, and even desirable.

It's unfortunate that the Israel of Entebee has been replace by the Israel of Peres. Peace at any price and at all costs - even if it doesn't bring Peace at all.

Classmate-Wearing-Yarmulka said...

Explain to me why Israel doesn't have the death penalty for terrorists?

Why is Kuntar even alive?

Rafi G said...

what I do nto understand is why we are so committed to negotiating hundreds and thousands for the return fo 1 (or 3). If Kuntar is so important to them, let's trade 1 for one. Why one for thousands? Why do we have it in our head that we have to give thousands back? Let the negotiators say (assuming we are negotiating) you want kuntar, give us shalit. That is it. nothing more nothing less.

Jameel @ The Muqata said...

CWY: Israel does not have a death penalty for terrorists for 2 reasons: (Both are very sad).

1. Israel was worried that terrorsist would kill Israeli civlians in retaliation for killing terrorists (before Olso, kidnappings were much more popular and didn't always involve killing hostages...). Since Olso, and the suicide mentality evolved among Palestinians, this entire reason is worthless. Most terrorists assume they will be killed in their attacks.

2. This reason is alot worse (if that's even possible): Israel's refusal to mete out the death penalty to terrorists stems from the fear that maybe the Palestinian cause is just...

tafka PP said...

You may be shocked to hear this from me, but I think you are absolutely right about Haaretz- they are too consumed with their own self-importance to remember how to actually go about reporting news- their political agenda notwithstanding. I've stopped reading them too, for that reason- but every time I check their site, there is a new column which surprises me in it's *********. (I won't use the term I've come to call it here, as this is a family blog ;-) )

But don't worry, our concurrence will be short-lived- I don't agree with your use of that quote to support your analysis of what "Haaretz" or "The Left" thinks. Tragically, I think Golda was more on the money.

Ben Ami said...

somehow, someway, they must learn that we don't do business with human lives. so long as we trade and barter, they'll keep kidnapping. when they realize we don't ransom hostages, they'll stop taking them.

shoot the hostage. lose the battle. win the war.

ravyehoshua said...

Jameel, I don't agree with your assertion that the reason we don't have a death penalty here is because some people think maybe the enemy's cause is just. That is, I agree that today there are too many people (one is too many in my book) in places of power and influence who either think this consciously, or have it lurking in their subconsious. But the reason, I suspect, is because the self-proclaimed founders who shaped the dominent public culture in Israel saw the society they wished to create as a society which was "beyond" the death penalty - a morally superior society. In "morally superior" Europe, there is no death penalty, and that's who our "leaders" have always deferred to as their moral compass. So it has less to do with the Arabs and much more to do with the failure of vision which imagined a socialist paradise that even the Europeans don't believe in anymore. We're always the last to give up our desperate clinging to any redemptive ideology other than Judaism.

Jameel @ The Muqata said...

RavYehoshua: Then why does Israel have the death penalty for Nazis?

As a "a morally superior society" there wouldn't be any excuse to execute Nazis who "were just following orders"...

Justice Unhinged.
Golda may have been right THEN, but now there is a
different wind blowing thru the M.E.

Someone brought that out this past Shabbos, speaking about Hagar (an Egyptian princess) and Yishmael. She put him an 'arrow's distance' from her because she didn't have the love, courage, morality to comfort him in his distress and possible death. It was Hashem that
came to him after he did some teshuva.

That arrow is the symbol of his playfulness and his answer to all situations. The Egyptian princess
infused in her future Yishmaelites (and other eastern peoples) the ability for the women to sacrifice their children to death. This is their concept of "family."

Think about it for a while. This is a Torah source for that abhorrent trait.

So, this guy who wrote the Haaretz piece, knows nothing!

Jameel:

"Then why does Israel have the death penalty for Nazis?"

It's easy to have a "morally objectionable" law knowing that it will never be applied. I wonder if the law was originally codified merely as a symbolic statement. How many Nazis did Israel's early jurists actually expect to be brought to justice in Israel? Indeed, how many Nazis have been prosecuted in Israek and was anyone ever executed other than Eichman? I'm also willing to bet that the this law was the product of the survivor's generation and that today Israel would never actually execute even a top Nazi.

In any case, the lack of a death penalty for terrorists is simple. Israel is afraid of the public relations backlash not because it was executing the death penalty, but because they were executing a poor, peace-loving Palestinian freedom fighter.

Samir Kuntar, Israel's longest held Lebanese prisoner who has been incarcerated in Israeli jail for the past 30 years. In fact the Hezbollah operation last year in which 2 Israeli soldiers were kidnapped, which sparked the 34 day long war, was meant to use the 2 soldiers as bargaining chips in order to force Israel to release Samir Kuntar.


"THE REAL REASON SAMIR KUNTAR IS ISRAEL'S LONGEST HELD LEBANESE PRISONER!!!!

(Samir Kuntar; also spelled: Sameer Kuntar, Kantar, Qantar, Kintar, Quntar, Qintar, Cantar)

Samir Kuntar
سمير القنطار‎

On July 12, 2006 Lebanese Hezbollah militants crossed the border with Israel in an operation dubbed "Operation Truthful Promise," which was aimed at nabbing Israeli soldiers in exchange for Lebanese prisoners. Hezbollah succeeded in the operation and successfully took hostage two Israeli soldiers, Eldad Regev and Ehud Goldwasser. During the operation, eight Israeli soldiers were killed. This ignited the sequence of events which led to the Israel/Lebanon summer war.

The story goes further back than July of 2006. It really began in April 1979! On Sabbath day, April 22, 1979, Danny and Smadar Haran met up with a monster named Samir Kuntar.

Danny and Smadar were a loving Israeli couple. They had everything they could ever hope for... love, marriage and two precious daughters, Einat, 4 and Yael, 2. That day Smadar was home anticipating Danny's return from work and preparing for the Sabbath. She had just picked up their two toddlers from day care. Danny, on the other hand, was looking forward to nothing more than getting home and spending time with his wife and his two young daughters.

Traditionally, the Sabbath is the most special day of the week, the day the family gets to spend time together and celebrate their bond to Judaism. It was especially important for Danny who, as a young father, had to work extra hard in order to provide for his wife and young children. Little did Smadar know that this would be the last Sabbath she would celebrate with her family because of a man named Samir Kuntar. Around midnight the nightmare began!

Who is Samir Kuntar?

Samir Kuntar is one of three Lebanese prisoners still serving time in Israeli jails. Kuntar, a Lebanese Druze born on July 20, 1962 in the Lebanese mountain village of Aabey currently holds the dubious distinction of being the longest held Lebanese prisoner in Israeli jails! He was a member of Abu Abbas' notorious PLF (Palestine Liberation Front) which committed despicable acts of terror against Israeli, Jewish, and American targets worldwide throughout the 1970's and 1980's. Kuntar was convicted and sentenced to a 534 years prison sentence by the state of Israel. Israel even almost tried to pass a bill to have him executed! What did he do? What was his crime?

The Nasser Operation

The crime he committed was the most horrific crime ever committed on Israeli soil! On April 22, 1979 Samir Kuntar along with a gang of three other PLF terrorists (Abed Majeed Asslan, Ahmed Al-Abras, and Mhanna Salim Al- Muyaed) departed from the southern Lebanese seashore city of Tyre on a 55-horsepowered rubber motor boat. Their destination was the Israeli coastal city of Naharyia, about 10 km south of the Lebanese border, the target of their operation was a residential apartment building. This operation was dubbed "Nasser Operation" and its aim was the killing and terrorizing of Israel's Jewish civilians.

The terrorists made landfall in the Israeli coastal city of Naharyia at around midnight, undetected under the cover of darkness. As they made their way along the shore, they were intercepted by an Israeli police officer whom they shot dead. In Naharya the terrorists broke into a building as other Israeli police officers arrived on the scene. The terrorists then broke into Danny and Smadar Haran's apartment, fired their weapons and threw grenades. Smadar managed to find a crawl space into which she, her younger daughter, 2 year old Yael, and a neighbor all hid. To prevent Yael from crying and giving away their hiding place, Smadar covered the child's mouth with her hand.

According to Smadar "They held Danny and Einat while they searched for me and Yael, knowing there were more people in the apartment. I will never forget the joy and the hatred in their voices as they swaggered about hunting for us, firing their guns and throwing grenades. I knew that if Yael cried out, the terrorists would toss a grenade into the crawl space and we would be killed. So I kept my hand over her mouth, hoping she could breathe. As I lay there, I remembered my mother telling me how she had hidden from the Nazis during the Holocaust. 'This is just like what happened to my mother,' I thought."

Sadly, Smadar's attempt to muffle her daughter's whimpering proved fatal. Yael was accidentally suffocated and died within the hiding space.

According to Smadar Haran, her last memories of Danny and Einat, that day, were when they were being led away at gun point by Kuntar. She could hear from her closet space Danny telling Einat, "Don't be scared, my baby, it will be alright" and Einat replied to him in her little voice, "Dad, where is Mommy? I want Mommy." Smadar's last memory of her 2-year-old daughter, Yael, was when her little daughter was taken to the apartment hiding space. Right before Yael had her mouth covered by her mother, she asked her mother "Where is my little pacifier." There was no time to search for the pacifier. Minutes later Smadar covered Yael's mouth to keep her from revealing the hiding space. Smadar soon felt her daughter's tiny tongue licks and lip sucking on the palm of her hand. She didn't know what to make of it at first but hours later was told by doctors and paramedics that the reason Yael was licking her palm while she covered her mouth was because she was gasping for air.

After taking Danny and four-year old Einat hostage, Kuntar and his group took them down to the beach. Samir Kuntar quickly shot Danny in the back and then drowned him in the Mediterranean Sea to ensure his death. While Kuntar drowned Danny, he forced terrified Einat to watch and cry. According to eyewitnesses, "Danny was murdered in front of Einat so that his death would be the last sight she would ever see." Little Einat would not have that horrible memory in her head for long. Kuntar, the brave Lebanese freedom fighter, crushed Einat's skull over and over upon the rocks with the butt of his rifle until she was dead.

During the ensuing shootout between Kuntar's terror group and Israeli police, two policeman were killed along with two of the Arab terrorists. Kuntar and the fourth participant, Ahmed Al-Abrass, were captured. Ahmed Al-Abrass was later free by the Israeli authorities in the infamous May 1985 Ahmed Jibril prisoner exchange deal in which 1,150 Arab prisoners (some of whom had blood on their hands) were exchanged for three Israeli soldiers. Kuntar was not included in the deal.

The Israeli government determined at first to make a decision to execute Kuntar, for his horrific crime, especially for the fact that he tortured and beat to death the 4-year old toddler. Israeli Prime Minister at that time, Menachem Beagin , proposed a draft resolution to the Security and Foreign Affairs Committee in the Israeli Keenest on April 24, 1979. He demanded to eliminate a previous resolution stipulated by the Israeli cabinet, which said no execution should be implemented against terrorists as the international law prohibits it. The Israeli Foreign Minister Izer Weizman and Transportation Minister Hayeem Landau supported Beagin’s draft resolution. Abraham Sharer, who was the head of the Likude parliamentary bloc also, called for Kuntar’s execution. Isaac Shamir issued a statement on April 25, 1979 also calling for his execution.

The Israelis tried to implement the execution sentence on Samir Kuntar and the whole parliament agreed on them. The only dilemma they were having was the Israeli law that doesn’t allow execution except for the Nazis of the World War II and to those found guilty of betrayal to their country. Furthermore, they did not want the international community on their backs; also, they wanted to improve their relationship with Egypt after the peace process. As a consequence, the Israeli central court in Haifa sentenced Kuntar to 5 life sentences plus 47 years to come up with the total of 542 years. During the trial, Kuntar was waving victory signs, and called himself a hero.

Samir Kuntar has confessed proudly to his murder of the little girl and never once showed one ounce of remorse for his crime. Even while serving his prison term, he has bragged repeatedly during interviews about how proud he was for murdering the 4-year-old Israeli child. While in prison Kuntar got married and even receives conjugal visits.

Several months later, the PLF seized the Achille Lauro, an Italian cruise ship, and demanded that Israel release Kuntar along with a list of 50 other Palestinian prisoners. Ironically out of the 50 Arab Palestinian prisoners that were demanded, Kuntar was the ONLY one that was "actually" named on that list. The hijackers killed a wheelchair-bound American Jewish passenger, Leon Klinghoffer, and threw him overboard into the Mediterranean Sea. Kuntar was not released, but his supporters would not give up. In 2004 Israel release ALL Lebanese prisoners except for Kuntar and two other Lebanese (Nissim Nasser and Yehya Sakaf). In fact Kuntar, as well, was almost released by Israel during that infamous Israel Hezbollah Prisoner Exchange of 2004, BUT in the last second Hezbollah violated the agreement and Kuntar remained behind bars! Read http://samirkuntar.net/samir2.html to learn ‘WHY’ Hezbollah violated the agreement!

War: July 12, 2006

On July 12, 2006 per orders of Hezbollah leader, Sheik Hasssan Nasrallah, Hezbollah terrorists crossed the northern Israeli border. They attacked two Israeli military vehicles with anti tank missiles, killed four soldiers, kidnapped two others and demanded the immediate unconditional release of Samir Kuntar in exchange for the two abducted soldiers. Hezbollah originally named this operation "Operation Freedom for Samir Al-Kuntar," but on the days leading up to the July 12 attack it was shortened to "Operation Truthful Promise." The latter referred to the "true promise" Nasrallah had made to the Kuntar family that the cross-border kidnapping of IDF soldiers to force the release of Samir Kuntar.
In subsequent interviews on Al-Manar TV station Dr Mohamad Jawad Khalifeh, the Lebanese Minster of Health, congratulated Hezbollah for "its great actions" and said that "Lebanon has the right to regain its prisoners and liberate them." Ali Ammar, an Hezbollah member of the Lebanese Parliament, stated his opinion that "particularly at this basic stage in the history of the homeland and the nation, this government should have expressed solidarity with its people and let Samir Quntar feel that he is a Lebanese par excellence." After the kidnapping, Samir Kuntar’s brother, Bassam Kuntar, said "I kiss the hands and foreheads of the warriors who executed the kidnap. I imagine Samir at the moment, with happiness raising his spirits and those of his friends," he said.


As expected, the Israeli government was not interested in negotiating with terrorists. They sent a small number of troops into southern Lebanon in an attempt to quickly find and free their two soldiers. Soon Hezbollah began shelling Israel's northern communities with Katuysha rockets in an attempt to kill as many innocent men, women and children as possible and to pressure the Israeli government to take the prisoner exchange demand. Israel had no choice but to escalate their response. Both Hezbollah, their supporters and Lebanon's civil infrastructure all suffered the consequences. Even though Israel defeated Hezbollah during this war, it still didn't manage to get its soldiers back.

During the fighting Israel captured a Hezbollah terrorist by the name of Ali Hassan Saliman. According to Saliman, in the interviews/interrogations following his capture, he said that “the main objective of Hezbollah's corss-border kidnapping of two Israeli soldiers was to secure the release of Samir Kuntar.” Also, that “Nasrallah had made a promise to the Kuntar family that Samir would be released. The Hezbollah operation was first and foremost aimed at releasing Kuntar. Everything else was secondary.”

Israel's track record of going against it's previous policy of not releasing Arab prisoners with blood on their hands in exchange for IDF soldiers has come home to roost. Arab terrorist groups have been encouraged to kidnap Israelis in the hope (and often the expectation) that these soldiers will become bargaining chips for the release of Arab prisoners. This softening of Israel's formerly strict policy of never negotiating with terrorists has merely added fuel to the fire. Israeli soldiers are supposed to protect the children of Israel, not to facilitate the release of child murderers, such as the monster, Samir Kuntar.

Neither Israelis individually nor their military intentionally targets children or any non-combatant, for that matter. When children die, it is nearly always because they are caught in the crossfire or when they are "set up" by their fellow Arab-terrorists to score propaganda points. But NEVER would manner of the killing be so pre-planned nor would the act itself be so glorified, such as that as Samir Kuntar.

Smadar Haran has since remarried and is raising a new family. She hopes that Samir Kuntar will stay behind bars until his dying day. "I don't believe that the terrorist will be released now, and I don't believe that the Israeli government will accept this request, after it promised not to release terrorists with blood on their hands."

We at SamirKuntar.net concur with Smadar Haran. We will do whatever we can to see that Samir Kuntar rots in Israeli prisons. We would also urge the Israeli government and courts to reverse the long-standing policy of not allowing for the administration of the death sentence. After all, Samir Kuntar and other Samir Kuntars like him never thought twice about administrating the death sentence to little Einat Haran and other Einat Harans just like her!

CONCLUSION

Kuntar was not the reason Israel chose to go to war with Lebanon but he was the reason Hezbollah kidnapped the two soldiers which set the war process in motion.

POSTSCRIPT

Neither Israel nor Hezbollah doubt that Kuntar murdered Danny and Einat Haran. The only difference is that Israel sees him as the cold-blooded murderer he is. Hezbollah and their supporters glorify him as a freedom fighter and hero!

There is another point worth mentioning. Hezbollah has never claimed that Kuntar was innocent or that he may have been framed. They only demand his release as if he were being held unlawfully and that Israel had no right to imprison him. Once again it's all about Israel never doing any right and Arabs incapable of doing any wrong!

A SAD GRUESOME REALITY

After drowning Danny in the sea in front of little Einat, Kuntar, the brave Lebanese freedom fighter, then turned his attention towards the frightened little 4-year old. He took his rifle and then swung it across the little toddler's head, knocking her to the ground. As little Einat was knocked to the ground, she was screaming and crying hysterically "mommy daddy help me," while thrashing her little legs around in the sand. But unfortunately Einat was alone, and no one was there to save her. Kuntar then dragged the little toddler a couple of feet to the closest rock he could find, this was while she was begging him not to hurt her. Kuntar, then laid her head down on a rock, with the intention of crushing it with the butt of his rifle. Einat, instinctively covered her head with her little arms, Kuntar struggled with the little toddler until he finally managed to clear her arms out of the way so that he could aim for the head, and then he proceeded on beating her over and over with the butt of his rifle until blood rushed out of her ears and her little cries faded away as she was knocked into unconsciousness. Then, to ensure she was dead, Kuntar continued on beating her over the head, as hard as he could, several more times until her skull was crushed and she was dead.

SHORT NOTE: The way Kuntar killed little Einat is reminiscent to the way the Nazis used to kill Jewish babies during the Holocaust, by crushing their little heads with their boots or with the butts of their rifles!
