BACKGROUND

On May 6, 2010 at 6 am the Israeli General Security Service accompanied by Israeli police raided his home in Haifa and arrested him. Makhoul is still not allowed to see his lawyer.

Ameer Makhoul’s arrest, detention and a previously imposed travel ban are based on emergency regulations and “secret” information that is never disclosed to the defense. They are a flagrant violation of the UN Declaration and the EU guidelines on Human Rights Defenders. Palestinian human rights of freedom of movement, freedom of expression, freedom of assembly and association as well as the right to protection from arbitrary arrest are daily violated.

Israel blatantly disregards all democratic principles in order to prevent Palestinian – and indeed all - civil society to speak out and to crush the popular movement to defend the rights and existence of the Palestinian people.

Mr. Makhoul’s case is only one example amidst a recent escalated campaign by Israeli authorities against Palestinian human rights defenders and civil resistance. In addition to arbitrary arrest and detention, Israeli authorities have applied travel bans against a number of Palestinian human rights defenders in recent months.

Israeli authorities have also started to target Palestinian, Israeli and international nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) as part of their wider campaign against Palestinian human rights defenders. Measures used include raids of organizations’ offices, deportation of organization staff and volunteers, a new policy of visa denials for international NGO workers, and pending legislation in the Knesset that would enable the Israeli government to close down any organization that gives information to foreign actors or participates in legal efforts outside Israel to try Israeli officials for war crimes.

Lieberman
The Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman said during a visit to Japan: '"Our intelligence services are of the best in the world and are also very, very responsible people."
Sorry, but I don't believe that.
It is not normal that 7000 Palestinians have been imprisoned for 'espionage' .
I think the secret services just want to break the Palestinian resistance with false accusations and that some politicians lie about their true intentions.

Police State On an Israeli blog:

In Belgium, we see the same.

Marcel Vervloesem, member of our association who revealed the so named Zandvoort childporn case with pictures of 90.000 victims, was falsely accused.
Then he was criminalised by the mainstream media controlled by the State.

Even the statements and documents that showed his innocence, disappeared from his court record.

In 2008, after Marcel Vervloesem was persecuted during 9 years, the High Council of Justice acknowledged the disappearance.
The High Council acknowledged that the 7 CD-ROMs of the childporn case Zandvoort which the belgian King transferred at the request of our association to the Attorney General, were also disappeared.
They were never refound and the belgian Minister of Justice who is very well informed, covers the whole affair.

The judicial system in democratic states seems totally sick and the State Security was taken over the role of Justice.

The Israeli Minister Lieberman spoke of a constitutional democracy but the case Ameer Makhoul - Omar Said prooves that he can better speak about the Israeli Police State.

reaction The expression 'Jewish, democratic state' proves that the Shin Bet does not understand what democracy means.
And as Collette Avital says, it's indeed ridiculous that the Sin Bet says that she has 'to protect the Jewish character of Israel'.
That explains why the Shin Bet accuses Palestinian leaders of "espionage" and locks them up in prisons without the right to a lawyer and a fair trial.
I also have the personal impression that the Shin Bet execute the political program of the ultra-nationalist Israeli government. That is not her job and it is a phenomenon that occurs primarily in totalitarian states.
One of the intentions of the Israeli government is to break the will and resistance of the Palestinian people by silencing the Palestinian leaders inside and outside Israel.
