Honenu director: Why is everyone silent about this?
Tuesday, September 16, 2014, 17:12 Honenu director Shmuel Meidad sent a letter to Knesset Members in a call to action following the court ruling confirming that Attorney General Shai Nitzan discriminated against right-wingers during the time he served as Deputy Attorney General. “In the name of the many individuals who have been harmed we demand that you bring about a major change in the State of Israel.” Almost one week has passed since K’far Saba Magistrate Court Judge Nava Bechor ruled that Nitzan selectively enforced the law and discriminated against right-wingers. Judge Bechor severely criticized Nitzan’s conduct for his arbitrarily closing cases of complaints of incitement by left-wingers and Arabs when he served as Deputy Attorney General. Following the ruling Honenu turned to numerous Knesset Members in a demand to take action to stop the persecution of right-wingers by the Attorney General. “After an exhausting trial the court decided and ruled explicitly: Shai Nitzan and the Attorney General’s office discriminate against [the right-wing] Jewish population,” wrote Shmuel (Zangi) Meidad, the director of Honenu, in a letter which was sent to many Knesset Members. “Honenu attorney Adi Kedar, who received important material from Chani Luz, the director of Tadmit, a media watchdog group and from The Legal Forum for the Land of Israel, already proved it, and the court has already seen and ruled. So what more is needed?” “From here begins your obligation as public servants,” wrote Meidad. “In the name of the many individuals who have been harmed who received and are receiving our counsel, we demand that you wait no longer. Bring about a major change in the State of Israel, which should first of all cancel the suit against Uri Baram and start investing the States’ resources, our collective resources, in the war against genuine enemies and not against itself. Why is everyone silent about this?” concluded Meidad in his letter.
