Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s former chief of staff says the ongoing campaign backed by a member of the coalition to release the Jewish terrorist behind the murder of three Palestinian family members in the West Bank village of Duma is part of the government’s “campaign to crush the justice system.”
“The destructive logic is clear: He is righteous, the judges are corrupt, and therefore it is forbidden to respect court rulings,” tweets Yoav Horowitz.
“In the morning we will whitewash and justify atrocities, and in the evening we claim in English that we are moral and defenders of human rights,” he adds.
Amiram Ben Uliel was sentenced to three life sentences plus 20 years for the deadly firebombing in the West Bank village of Duma in which Riham and Saad Dawabsha were killed along with their 18-month-old son, Ali Saad. Only the couple’s eldest son, Ahmed, survived the terror attack, with terrible burns; he was 5 years old at the time.
