Jewish terror cell members convicted in bombing plot
    #1929165 - 09/18/03 03:42 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

By Nadav Shragai



Three members of the so-called Bat Ayin Jewish
terror cell were convicted yesterday of attempted
murder for trying to set off a bomb near a girls
school in the East Jerusalem neighborhood of A-Tur
last year.




The Jerusalem District Court
also convicted the three -
Yarden Morag, Shlomo Zeliger
Dvir and Ofer Gamliel, all
residents of the West Bank
settlement of Bat Ayin - of
illegal weapons possession.

In their verdict, judges Moshe
Ravid, Yaffa Hecht and Jacob

Zaban wrote that the three "decided to commit a
major terror attack that would cause many
casualties among the Arab residents of East
Jerusalem by means of a booby-trapped cart that
they prepared and left in a crowded place, at
the entrance to a girls school and to Mokassad
Hospital in East Jerusalem."

During their interrogations, the verdict
continued, the three "made many detailed
statements that included confessions of having
committed the crimes attributed to them. We
have no doubt that the confessions of Yarden
Morag and Shlomo Dvir are truthful."

Morag and Dvir were caught by a policeman on
patrol while they were leaving the cart, on
April 29, 2002.

"The defendants worked for months to prepare the
bomb and put it together, held discussions
about the bomb's composition ... [and] took the
trouble to conduct exploratory missions in
order to find an `attractive' site at which to
set off the bomb and to determine an
appropriate time, one at which there are a
large number of passersby at the site," the
judges wrote. "They conducted another patrol
after daylight savings time went into effect in
order to determine whether they needed to
change the planned time, lest they miss the
hour at which the street is crowded, and even
canceled the departure planned for Thursday
night for fear that the street would be empty
of people on Friday. The site destined for the
attack was picked with care. There are no
police or Border Police patrols there, and Jews
avoid it."

"The defendants were also careful to avoid any
marks that could identify them. They
compartmentalized, took care to wipe away their
fingerprints and took care to work with gloves.
They bought gasoline in small quantities each
time in order to avoid suspicion ... The
defendants placed two explosive bricks, two
containers of cooking gas and two barrels
containing a mixture of oil, gasoline and
screws on the cart in order to multiply the
effect of the attack. Finally, one wall of the
cart was removed in order to focus the shock
waves and prevent them from being dispersed."

All of these things, the judges concluded,
"attest to an effort by the defendants to
injure and kill people - passersby and students
coming to the school to study. And not in vain
was Ofer Gamliel brought into the group; he
towed the cart, using the security vehicle of
the settlement of Bat Ayin" - to which the
group had access because Morag's father was the
settlement's security officer.

The judges rejected the claim made by the
defendants and their lawyers that "they only
wanted to ignite a pyre and create a media
effect, with the bomb neutralized. In order to
ignite a pyre, there is no need for hundreds of
liters of oil, two explosive bricks, two
containers of cooking gas and a quantity of
screws ... The defendants intended a bombing
that would injure and kill Arabs as an act of
vengeance for the terror attacks against Jews,
and to send a message that every coin has two
sides."

Two other people suspected of belonging to the
Bat Ayin cell are being tried separately: Yosef
Ben Baruch, who has also been charged with
attempted murder, and Noam Federman, accused of
illegal weapons possession. Their trials are
still in progress.

Rabbis denounce Shin Bet

Meanwhile, the Council of Yesha Rabbis
yesterday issued a sharp denunciation of the
Shin Bet security service's behavior in the
investigation of another alleged Jewish terror
cell (Yesha is a Hebrew acronym for Judea,
Samaria and Gaza). That investigation appears
to have fizzled, with most of the suspects
being released last week.

In a letter sent to Shin Bet chief Avi Dichter
yesterday, council chairman Rabbi Dov Lior and
council member Rabbi Daniel Shilo wrote: "In
our view, groping in the dark does not justify
arresting people and holding them under
difficult and humiliating conditions without
the possibility of contacting their families
and attorneys ... The impression that emerges
is that these people were trampled on and
physically and spiritually tortured in the
absence of information obtained by professional
methods, and to this is added the impression
that there is a desire to intimidate people, so
that they won't dare to fight for their
beliefs. In the meantime, once again an entire
population has been stigmatized, once again
rumors have been spread about the existence of
an alleged underground, and once again people
cannot help suspecting that the Shin Bet acts
not only as a security agency, but also as a
political agency."

However, the rabbis stressed that they "object
to any private act of violence against Arabs."

If they had been palestinians, there would be a grade school named after them.

convicted of "illegal weapons possession"?

sounds to me like they were guilty of just a bit more than that.

Al Capone went to prison for tax evasion.
