Former Prison Director Shatters Lies Regarding Terrorists...and Intensification of Terror against Jews — guest post by Myrtle Rising

4 Shevat 5784 | ד' שבט ה'תשפ"ד

 

Blogger's note: Used by permission. 

The full title of this (very recent at this writing) guest post by Myrtle Rising is:

Former Prison Director Betty Lahat Shatters the Lies Fed to Us regarding Terrorists, Prisoner Conditions for Terrorists, Humanitarian Assistance, and the Complicity of the Media and Officials in the Intensification of Terror against Jews

She also wrote a post prior to this one about...well, I'll include Myrtle's own introductory words on this:

"...a particularly shocking excerpt about the whole Shalit episode from Moran Corse's larger interview with former director of Israeli prisons, Betty Lahat:
myrtlerising.weebly.com/blog/the-truth-behind-the-5-year-shalit-phase-release-exchange-plus-who-really-called-the-shots-during-that-time-you-wont-believe-who-to-what-extent

What follows now is a summary of the rest of the interview, in Hebrew for women only:
https://www.hidabroot.org/article/1189663

It's quite illuminating as Betty has inside information she saw and heard first-hand.

Please prepare yourself for a lot of ugly shockers."

Let this sink in before reading the body of the post. My comments follow. —HDG


The General Perks for Terrorists in Israeli Prisons, Plus Their Usual Menus

Betty describes prison for terrorists as "a warm, safe place" with the following perks: 
  • decent meals
  • a rich & varied canteen to supplement their decent meals
  • time outside for fresh air and exercise
  • free high-quality health care (including life-saving complex surgery in Israeli hospitals)
  • free dental care
  • free studies
  • access to terror-supporting "lawyers" (who really act as agents for the terrorists to pass on orders and plots for further terror)
  • access to cable TV with a wide variety of channels

​Their day starts with breakfast and access to canteens, where the PA (Palestinian Authority) deposits money for them.

(And they don't just support the actual terrorists. Terrorists' families also receive financial support from the PA. The more blood a terrorist has on his hands, the more financial support his family receives.)

How is this money transferred to the terrorists in prison?

Why, via Bank HaDoar, of course!​

Every terrorist holds an account in Bank HaDoar (Israel Postal Bank). That's where the PA deposits money for the terrorists to enjoy canteen, studies, and books.

The prison canteen holds a rich and varied selection meant to improve the food options in prison.

Their standard fare resembles standard army food, only even better than that.

Terrorists also enjoy cooking platters inside their cells, which is how they improve their meals even more.

Why do terrorists responsible for the slaughter of hundreds of Jews enjoy better meals than Israeli soldiers?

Why can't these terrorists at least subsist on the dogfood-like meals Yehonatan Pollard received in his initial maximum security prison?

Especially since Betty claims the mere fact we try to prove ourselves as more humane and nicer doesn't work — but produces the opposite effect: 
With all the improved conditions we gave them, they despise us, they smirk at us, they laugh at us.

[Sinwar] even stated, "This is your duty."

Leftist Media + Barbaric Terrorists = Lots of Brutalized or Dead Jews

As mentioned, the terrorists enjoy access to cable TV with tons of channels.

Chillingly, Betty saw the terrorists often watch Israeli TV in order to understand the nation's mood and to analyze how to proceed with their own interests.

​They know all the political pundits, policy makers, and security officials by name.

She says they do all this because they understand our "weak" points, that we are "rachmanim bnei rachmanim — compassionate people who are the scions of compassionate people."

​She says of Sinwar:
He prepared himself for years in prison.

He didn't rest for a moment. He established gangs within the prisons, which were meant to battle against us in the future.

And that's what we're seeing. That's what's happening today.

Most of his headquarters employ those same people he worked to free in the last deal.
With the exception of Channel 14, the Israeli news outlets lean Left and hold powerful sway over the weak-minded, more materialism-oriented, Torah-ignorant minds in Israel (which is how the media cultivates the Left-wing bloc; the Israeli Right tends to attract stronger minds and encompasses religious Jewry, a highly Torah-educated bloc).

According to Betty, the Left-leaning media played right into the hands of the terrorists, revealing weak spots and ways to manipulate the Israeli public.

​As Betty notes:
...all those disagreements and advice we give via the media – these hurt us in the end.

​For they enable them to understand where our weak points lie.
It was these imprisoned terrorists who helped orchestrate the demonstrations & negotiations from inside in favor of Gilad Shalit, knowing their day of liberation would coincide with Shalit's day of liberation.

Out of those 1200 terrorists freed, 41 had murdered 570 Jews.

The terrorist leaders chose exactly which ones one by one and chose the most lethal ones — with the full knowledge of the Israeli authorities. (Betty protested this — along with a whole lot of other deadly policies — but was constantly overruled.)


Sinwar himself helped the Israeli authorities decide which terrorists will be released.

Yeah — the guy who orchestrated the Barbaric Horror against the Jewish communities near the Gazan border. HE got to pick which one his men would get released.


​As Betty asserts:
​Our officials, flesh of our flesh, come to build up his leadership in order to release him and to appoint him to be the substitute of the Holocaust denier, Abu Mazen.
At least 2 of those released terrorists directly involved themselves in the orchestration and execution of the Great Slaughter.

These released terrorists didn't stay in Israel and Gaza. They went to Syria, Turkey, and Qatar to continue their terrorist strategies such as organizing terror groups to attack Jews worldwide.

So even a terror attack against Jews halfway across the world can possibly be traced back to the Shalit prisoner exchange in 2011 — and the complicity of most Israeli newscasters (except Channel 14) and certain Israeli authorities who oversaw the exchange.

She claims that just as with Gilad Shalit, terrorists are still controlling the process with the current hostage situation.


Mighty Martyr for Allah or Big Crybaby Bunny? You Decide!

Betty interacted directly with Sinwar during the length of his prison "holiday."

She remembers when cancer developed near his brain stem — and she recalls how Medinat Yisrael strove to save his life, providing him with top-notch hospital care and expensive complex surgery to remove the cancer.

​Betty destroys the popular notion of these "fearless martyrs for Allah" who hold no fear of death:
No, they are afraid of death...Yahya Sinwar is obsessed with his own life.

And he's just a big crybaby bunny.

I saw him when he broke down when he knew he had cancer, how he cried – like a spineless weakling, he sobbed.
Good to know.

I also love her description of him as a "crybaby bunny — shafan bachyan."

Maybe that's how I'll refer to him in future posts, rather than his name.

(If I post about him, that is. When I mention him, I feel the same as when I talk about maggots.)

And for a host of reasons (including those mentioned above, about us being oh-so humane), it's a huge tragedy that they didn't let nature take its course and leave the sick sucker rot to death.

Why go to such extremes to preserve his pathetically evil life?

And who are the members of the medical team who agreed to participate in such a travesty?

(It could easily be they were never told the patient's name until after the operation. After all, there was a lot of manipulation going on. Perhaps the medical staff were victims of it too.)

Why "Humane" Prisons Don't Work for Terrorists

Betty also rips the façade off the "lawyer" visits.

Many terrorists are serving multiple life sentences. What do they need lawyers for? Is it helpful if the lawyer reduces 7 life sentences to 2 life sentences?

And the terrorists already enjoy far cushier conditions in Israeli prisons than terrorists deserve.

The lawyers can't ask for better treatment.

In general, these terrorists have no legal needs.

So what purpose do these "lawyers" serve?

​Regarding these fake lawyer visits, Betty states:
This is something we screamed about for years and years.

But in our justice system — I don't know if you heard this name, Shai Nitzan, who was the State Prosecutor— we actually tried during his time to install procedures to curb their "rights" — both those of the lawyers and also regarding the conditions of their imprisonment, and so on.

But Medinat Yisrael is apparently — I say apparently because for us, it's exactly the opposite — it is apparently a country that is humane.

​And it wants to enable the prisoners to thrive within prison and these aren't the right prisoners for that...
In contrast to her justifiably strong stand against comfortable conditions for terrorists, Betty is very in favor of rehabilitation for regular prisoners and sought to implement programs to achieve this goal when she worked with Jewish prisoners.

And she comes down hard against the much-bantered claim of: "The fact that you've taken their freedom is punishment enough."

They don't feel punished at all.

In fact, they view all the nicey-nice in Israeli prisons as affirmation of their terrorist beliefs!

​As Betty asserts their view of all the prison comforts:
It's some kind of form of requesting forgiveness for having stolen their land from them.

​And they don't believe in it.

With all the improved conditions we gave them, they despise us, they snicker at us, they laugh at us.


[Sinwar] even stated: "This is your duty."
​Betty recalls when new & idealistic guy came to work at the prison; he wanted to engage in dialogue with the terrorists.

The militants told him outright that there would never be peace as long as the Jews live on "their" land, only hudna is possible.

"You guys need to turn over all the land [to us]," they said. "We need to be in charge or there will never be peace."

​"Let's Not Transform Them into Such Great Heroes. They ARE Afraid – and They Want to Live."

What about the common claim of "Harsh conditions and death sentences provide no deterrent! They deal fine with harsh conditions and do not fear death!"

Based on her interactions with the terrorists, Betty absolutely disparages such claims:
​No, they are afraid of death.

If Yahya Sinwar wasn't afraid, he would come out of his den, he would come outside...and anyone who tells you it's not so?

Yahya Sinwar is obsessed with his own life.


And he's just a big crybaby bunny.

I saw him when he broke down when he knew he had cancer, how he cried – like a spineless weakling, he sobbed.

So let's not transform them into such great heroes.

They ARE afraid – and they want to live.

They have their religious belief and their religious belief enables them to come and commit acts of murder and the like.
Betty explains how "Crybaby Bunny" operates in the background, sending others to carry out his blood-soaked dirty work, causing others to take the fall for his ideas and plots.

He carefully manipulates everything behind the scenes to protect his own life.

Everyone else can die — except him.

​Another reason why the fact of curbing their freedom (which isn't much curbed as shown above) doesn't work revolves around how Arabs living outside remain well-aware of the comfy conditions within the prison because the prison allows the terrorist so many visitors (and not just the fake lawyers).

So what does Betty recommend for genuine deterrence?


Effective Recommendations to Deter Terror

She wants Israeli prisons to imitate the American prisons for terrorists — meaning, the terrorists remain locked in their cell all day and receive minimum food.

​Interestingly, she emphasizes the importance of following the American prison model for terrorists, and not the Arab model (a far crueler model). I guess for the sake of the prison wardens, who could be damaged by following the cruel and inhumane Arab prison model.

Yet Betty emphasizes the death penalty isn't the only deterrence. Heavy punishments and much harsher prisons can make a huge difference.

​(At the very least, prisons can prevent imprisoned terrorists from orchestrating terrorism and manipulating Israeli society.)

She also recommends prisons to stop trying so hard to change the terrorists' ideology.

​She adds:
We must carry out the death penalty to all the terrorists who enter.

And to whoever says, "That doesn't deter; after all, they commit suicide terror" – it DOES deter!

​And oh, how it does deter them!

Where Lies the Root of All This Evil?

But why are Israeli authorities so blind to all this?

Why does the majority of the media, the top-ranking military leaders, the politicians, and other officials still push the false beliefs regarding deterrents and how to prevent the slaughter of Jews?

Why do they persist in pursuing "strategies" that clearly not only don't work, but make everything so much worse?

Moran Corse brought up the root of the evil: the Wexner Foundation (known in Hebrew as "Keren Vaksner"). She claims no one can advance to the top of Israeli society unless they attend courses at the Wexner Foundation.

Only familiar with the term and knowing nothing about Wexner, I listened avidly to Betty's description of how they influence Israeli society: 
Every person who is an alumnus of the Wexner Foundation is an administrator in our army today and also in the security apparatus, the Shabak, the foreign ministry, the commanders in chief, and the entire upper echelon of the IDF.
Going into much more detail about it, Betty notes that all the "progression" and humanitarianism of the USA is brought over to Israel via Wexner:
Everyone thinks the same.

No one strives to win and destroy our enemy.

We carry out yet another military operation and yet another military operation, and we yet again concern ourselves with their subsistence and we say, "Well, if we don't give them parnasa, then they'll come and harm us."

We gave them parnasa.

Benet and Lapid raised the number of Gazans allowed entry into Israel for employment by tens of thousands.

And what happened?

Why did they come and slaughter us on Simchat Torah?

What happened?

It's intolerable that as we as a country bring our dead to burial every single day, we also nurture their murderers inside the prisons.
Needless to say, it's not as if the Israeli attendees are blind or brainwashed.

They attend these sessions fully aware of the goals behind the sessions.

The attendees do so out of greed for power — nothing more and nothing less.

Everyone understands the goals and the results.

It is simply a partnership between the Israeli Erev Rav and the American Erev Rav.

​You cannot blame one without blaming the other.

Two of the Gazan Children Treated Wonderfully by Jews in Jewish Hospitals Grew into Terrorists who Murdered Jews

Even outside the prison, Betty saw how all the humanitarianism worked against the innocent citizens of Israel.

For example, Betty's young daughter of blessed memory suffered a battle against cancer, leading to her hospitalization in the children's ward of Schneider hospital.

Betty herself witnessed dedicated Jewish volunteers from Kibbutz Be'eri bring Gazan Arab children for treatment at Schneider. 

Betty watched how they poured tons of love and warmth on their ill Muslim Gazan charges.

​And later, Betty met 2 of those loved and cared for children as young men in the terrorist prison:  
And those two who were cured there – they became terrorists.

They were arrested for acts of terror.
Does that even register in the rational mind?

How is that people who, as children, were treated with such warmth and compassion by Israeli Jews, who owe the very lives to the kindness and expertise of Israeli Jews, decided to murder Israeli Jews?

Friends of Betty, who work in the children's ward of a hospital, described to her how they see the Arabs who come for treatment go hide under the stairwell and burn Israeli flags.

​Based on the above, Betty states: 
​I do not believe in their "innocent bystanders."

​I hold no compassion for them.

"Whoever is Compassionate toward the Cruel will End Up being Cruel toward the Compassionate."​

There are so many lies and truths revealed here, it's hard to summarize them properly.

Betty comes off as a wonderful, intelligent, and caring person. She did everything she could to deter terror and save lives.

(Tachlis, in Jewish prisons, she definitely guided the system toward rehabilitation, rather than punishment — because it worked. Most of the prisoners WANTED to improve themselves.)

But in some ways, the Israeli authorities handcuffed her more than the terrorists.

We need to pay close attention to her observations, garnered via years of experience.

And her experiences tragically reflect the age-old Torah dictum:

"Whoever is compassionate toward the cruel will end up being cruel toward the compassionate."

May Hashem shine the light of Geula on us all and bring the Geula speedily b'rachamim.

HDG: Amen to your b'racha, Myrtle. This whole article and its previous one describes Israel's prison system (if not the entire government, and if not the entire country, has"v) as displaying aspects of dhimmitude, the rule of Muslims over others, in my view. Here's a good description: The Dhimmitude of the West: A New Trajectory. How close to it are we, and how did we get anywhere near there?

Supposedly, dhimmitude was abolished in 1839 (in the Ottoman Empire, which the Holy Land, then known as "southern Syria" and "southern Palestine (this according to Wikipedia)," was part of until 1922. The title looks like Turkish to me, and Bat Ye'or never wrote anything about dhimmitude being limited to the Ottoman Empire. Muslims ruling anywhere use it.).

Is it a fulfillment of prophecy — the one that specifically says that Yishmael will rule over the Jews for nine months? Now that we're here, this would be the best scenario because we are in the third trimester of this "pregnancy" during a "pregnant" year, with two months of Adar.

Is this the real reason for the Gerush of Gush Katif and Northern Shomron in 2005? Did this start in 1990, when Aharon Barak came up with the "reasonableness" standard for the Supreme Court?

Or did it start after the 6-Day War? I remember clearly back in 1969, two years after the miraculous war, a comment on a newscast on how Jews couldn't just walk around in the newly reconquered territory of Yehuda and the Shomron without words from some "common tater" on the radio putting him down for it. A FULL TWO YEARS AFTER THE WAR.

Is this why the residents of Yehuda and the Shomron (Judea and Samaria) are under military rule all these years later, with the defenders' weaponry under the control of the army? 

Was the Gaza Envelope in the same category as J&S, and we people behind the Green Line just didn't know it?

Is this why our government believes the words of Arabs over the words of Jews living in the Land of Israel — and why many Jews, especially those from the Shomron, an example being Amiram Ben Uliel, are behind bars for years for confessing their "crimes" under torture?

Is this why we are being charged at the International Court of Justice in The Hague as I'm writing this, with genocide of the very people who attempted it against us, and are still not finished with that? 

Could all of the above be summarized in one word: DHIMMITUDE?

I could go on and on with my questions. But yesterday's haftarah, from Yehezkel (Ezekiel) 28, 25-26, foretells the end:

 

25 So says the Lord God: When I gather in the house of Israel from the peoples among whom they have been scattered, and I have been sanctified through them in the eyes of the nations, then shall they dwell on their land that I gave to My servant, to Jacob.   כה כֹּֽה־אָמַר֘ אֲדֹנָ֣י יֱהֹוִה֒ בְּקַבְּצִ֣י | אֶת־בֵּ֣ית יִשְׂרָאֵ֗ל מִן־הָֽעַמִּים֙ אֲשֶׁ֣ר נָפֹ֣צוּ בָ֔ם וְנִקְדַּ֥שְׁתִּי בָ֖ם לְעֵינֵ֣י הַגּוֹיִ֑ם וְיָֽשְׁבוּ֙ עַל־אַדְמָתָ֔ם אֲשֶׁ֥ר נָתַ֖תִּי לְעַבְדִּ֥י לְיַֽעֲקֹֽב:
26 And they shall dwell upon it securely, and they shall build houses and plant vineyards and dwell securely when I execute judgments against all those who plunder them from all around them, and they shall know that I am the Lord their God."   כו וְיָֽשְׁב֣וּ עָלֶיהָ֘ לָבֶטַח֒ וּבָנ֚וּ בָתִּים֙ וְנָֽטְע֣וּ כְרָמִ֔ים וְיָֽשְׁב֖וּ לָבֶ֑טַח בַּֽעֲשׂוֹתִ֣י שְׁפָטִ֗ים בְּכֹ֨ל הַשָּׁאטִ֚ים אֹתָם֙ מִסְּבִ֣יבֹתָ֔ם וְיָ֣דְע֔וּ כִּ֛י אֲנִ֥י יְהֹוָ֖ה אֱלֹֽהֵיהֶֽם:


May it happen quickly, and may G-d take His rightful place as King of the World, with Mashiah as His faithful servant!!!

 21 Tevet 5784 | כ"א טבת ה'תשפ"ד

"October 87, 2023"



Plea for my Land by Herbert Pagani
In French, with English and Hebrew subtitles

What Herbert Pagani wrote about and recited here has been our history at least ever since Lavan (Laban | לבן) looked at Jacob (Ya'acov | יעקב) the wrong way in Paddan Aram (SEARCH) (possibly somewhere in today's Syria, but no one states anywhere specific), prompting the latter to confirm with HQB"H that he should head back home to ERETZ YISRAEL | ארץ ישראל. This video is from 1976, according to a comment HERE

(HERBERT AVRAHAM HAGGIAG PAGANI, a Libyan-Italian Jew born in Tripoli, artist, musician and poet, passed away from leukemia in 1988 at the age of 44. Read more about his fascinating life on Wikipedia)

A Chinese commenter wrote in English: "Nationalism is not always racist; for some is about establishing an identity and standing up for yourself and your group. Now it makes so much more sense."

Too bad that a great deal of water under the bridge since  didn't net any change at all. Perhaps we in Israel will back up haShem's command on His form of our government and how it should be run?

We have been gaslighted all along by people who thrive under the system a lot of us barely live under. You can see this in an oped by Michael Rosental Guzman, where he adds to Pagani's statement: I define myself, therefore I am.

Another English translation of his poem, by his friend Albert Russo, is found in Herbert Pagani: Plea for my Land.

Achdut among Rabbinic Leadership, by R' Kenneth Cohen

9 Tevet 5784 | ט' טבת ה'תשפ"ד

 

One of the important parts of the new Israel order: the Sanhedrin. Source  

 

NB: Achdut = unity. Probably the best idea I've seen in years, if not in my lifetime! Toward the impending geulah shlemah!...be"H. - HDG

Used with permission. Source

 

  From the time of Moshe Rabbeinu, until the year 358 CE., there was a legislative body known as the Sanhedrin. It consisted of seventy of the greatest scholars in Israel.

The Sanhedrin was viewed and accepted as the ruling body of Jewish Law. It was forbidden to challenge these rulings.

The Torah speaks of the זקן ממרא, who was a judge of a lower court, who defied the Sanhedrin. He was put to death for such defiance.

Aside from the end to the declaration of the New Moon by way of the Sanhedrin, their dissolution, represented much more. A set calendar was established with seven leap years every nineteen years, when they last met in Tiberius in 358. This may have been seen as a positive outcome, but it was mostly tragic when we lost this accepted ruling body.

It represented the dispersion of Jews to all parts of the world. This dispersion also represented the fact that there was no longer one accepted authority, followed by all Jews.

Over the centuries, the divisions among Jews became more pronounced. Various communities followed the teachings of “their” rabbis, and were not connected to other Jews in a uniform manner.

This became even more pronounced in our generation. Everyone has their rabbi, and their accepted standards of Kashrut. There are differences among Chassidic and Lithuanian Jewry, and among Ashkenazim and Sephardim. There are major differences of opinion regarding the State of Israel and the IDF.

All of this, got me thinking about the current situation we are in. We constantly hear how special it was when the war broke out. There was incredible “Achdut,” or Jewish unity. Many, like Yechiel Leiter, whose eldest son fell in battle, has emphasized that his beloved son, Moshe, will not have died in vain, as long as the Achdut continues.

If this Achdut is so important,(and it definitely is), why can’t there be Achdut among the rabbis, who continue to represent views that are very different from those of other groups?

Why can’t we demand that they all “bury the hatchet,” and learn to find common ground? Why can’t they agree that there should be only one definition and label of Kashrut? Why can’t they all agree to salute our holy soldiers of the IDF? Why can’t they find a way to accept a uniform of Halacha, as existed in the days of the Sanhedrin?

If the nation as a whole is urged to be united, because our enemies do not differentiate as to what kind of Jew they want to kill, how much more should our rabbinic leaders learn to be united?

We need them to guide us as to how to be united. What kind of example do they set, when there is so much factionalizing? We need to at least express these ideas. Perhaps someone is listening and will act on this cry for unity. Hopefully, all of the Jewish people will wake up and stand together. We are one family with one G-d guiding us. Let’s hope this can be done now, and it won’t take the Mashiach to get this done. If we do achieve this unity on all levels, including the rabbis, that might be the very thing that will hurry the coming of the Mashiach speedily in our time.
