New turn in Dirani affair

For a decade, Israel has endured one of the most absurd trials imaginable. Mustafa Dirani, a terrorist from Amal, was released in one of the prisoner exchanges. He has subsequently sued the Israeli government in Israeli courts because he was sodomized during the investigation.

There is no doubt that he was threatened, beaten, and sodomized with a baton—not for the sheer fun of it, but in order to extract information about Ron Arad, who had been captured by Dirani’s colleagues. Logically, if we are prepared to release a thousand Arabs to bring back one Jew, and a very bad Jew at that, then that is all the more reason we should be allowed to torture an Arab to bring back another Jew.

Now a member of Unit 504 has filed a countersuit against the government, claiming that he was fired because of Dirani’s allegations even though he was not the one who tortured the terrorist. It is one thing that the government submitted to the court’s dictates, but a totally different thing that good interrogators are actually being punished for doing their jobs rescuing a Jew.
