Israel destroys Irish aid to Palestinian village community


Tents, solar panels and herd shelters smashed as Ireland and EU urged to evolve policy

Nothing to see here, just another normal day in #Israel!

Don't expect the #EU to condemn it or call for sanctions or anything after so many repeated criminal action by the IDF against the Palestinians, they keep on sending help, using it as a propaganda that they care, Israel destroys them or confiscates them, and it keeps on going!

Everyone is happy since they are "doing something" to help #Palestinians!

Filmtipp | Komödie: Atomic Falafel


Mimi und ihre 15-jährige Tochter Nofar wissen nicht, dass sie in Israel auf einem Pulverfass arbeiten. Unter der Stelle, an der sie mit ihrem Falafel-Truck die Soldaten der nahen Militärbasis versorgen, hat die Armee eine geheime Kommandozentrale. Da verliebt sich Mimi in den Atominspektor Oli.

Nofar und Sharareh – ein israelisches und ein iranisches Mädchen. Die eine lebt allein mit ihrer Mutter Mimi in einem Manövergebiet mitten in der israelischen Wüste, die andere in einem abgelegenen Dorf im Norden Irans, unter dessen örtlicher Mädchenschule Plutonium angereichert wird. Beide Mädchen sind in der Pubertät und mehr mit ihrem ersten Sex, ihrem Status auf Facebook oder ihrer Musikkarriere beschäftigt als mit Politik.

Als sie sich im Internet kennenlernen und befreunden, verhindern sie durch den Austausch ihnen zufällig in die Hände geratener militärischer Geheimnisse fast nebenbei eine nukleare Katastrophe. Dabei hilft ihnen, eher gegen seinen Willen, Oliver Hahn, genannt Oli, Deutscher, Pazifist und Mitglied der internationalen Atom-Kontroll-Kommission. Während der vier Tage dauernden Kontrolle ist eine kriegerische Handlung nicht möglich. Dummerweise entwickelt Oli ein großes Verlangen nach Mimi und ist auch danach nicht zur Ausreise bereit – sehr zum Missfallen von General Haim, der auch für Mimis Falafel schwärmt und für den die Sicherheit Israels auf dem Spiel steht. ()

Video: Web | MP4 (90 Min)

Sara Fortis (born Sarika Yehoshua in 1927 in Chalkis, a small town near Athens, Greece) never knew her father, who passed away when she was only two months old. Raised by her mother, Sara and her sister enjoyed a happy childhood. Though they identified as 100% Greek, they also celebrated being Jewish by lighting candles every Friday and attending temple on holidays.

Sara knew it was time to leave her hometown when the Germans arrived in 1941. She had heard about Jews in other small Greek towns being deported by the Nazis and never returning. Sara and her mother escaped to the small village of Kuturla and hid there for a short while. When it was no longer safe for Jews, Sara was told to go, although the villagers agreed to hide her mother. Leaving her mother, Sara decided to become an andarte (resistance fighter). Wanting to play a significant role in the group, she decided to go from village to village to recruit other females who wanted to fight.

Sara formed a band of #female #partisans that became indispensable to the male fighters, transforming young village girls into women. On their first mission, they were ordered to throw Molotov cocktails to distract the enemy and allow the partisans to attack. Impressed by their skills, the male partisans invited the all-female group to join in many missions. They burned down houses, executed Nazi collaborators, and aided the men in a way no group of females had before. The male andartes were given credit for many missions the women completed, as it was unfathomable that women could accomplish such acts. Often the women were forced to sleep next to the men and Sara constantly worried about the women's safety.

Sara became a prominent and well-respected figure in the andartes movement in Greece. By age 18, she was known as 'Kapetenissa [Captain]Sarika'. The Nazis sent an informer to try to capture her, but mistakenly arrested -- then brutally raped and murdered -- her cousin, Medi. Vowing revenge, she tracked down and executed the informer.

After the war, the andartes fell out of favor with the new Greek government. Sara was arrested, but owing to her great reputation, she was released shortly after. She then emigrated to #Israel, where she met her husband and settled down.

Initiative „GG 5.3 Weltoffenheit“


Neiman: „Hannah Arendt dürfte heute hier nicht sprechen“

Tja, um es kurz zu machen: So sehe ich das auch. Es ist unerträglich, wie ein richtiges Prinzip - Kampf gegen #Antisemitismus - mißbraucht wird, um Kritik gegen die Politik des Staates #Israel abzuwürgen.

Ja, ein schwieriges, oft vermintes Feld. Kritik an der Politik des Staates Israel erfordert immer eine sorgfältige Argumentation, um klar zu machen, dass es dabei um die Politik eines bestimmten Staates geht, nicht um Verteufelung von Menschen einer bestimmten Religion oder Herkunft.

Eigentlich also doch wie immer: Auch wer, wie ich, den US-Imperialismus und seine mörderische Politik kritisiert, pflegt natürlich keinen Anti-Amerikanismus. Es geht doch dabei nicht um die (US-)amerikanischen Menschen. Das wäre in der Tat rassistisch, menschenfeindlich undwasweissich. Wer den US-Imperialismus kritisiert, der weiß, dass es auch in den USA sehr viele Menschen gibt, die diese Politik ebenfalls ablehnen. Haben wir doch z. B. in der Bewegung gegen den Vietnamkrieg oder auch gegen die Irakkriege gesehen.

So ist es auch im Fall Israel. Ja, ich vertrete die Ansicht, dass die Politik des Staates Israel gegenüber den Palästinensern als #Apartheid bezeichnet werden muss, dass die Besetzung palästinensischer Gebiete illegal ist, dass die Annektion von #Ost-Jerusalem einen klaren Rechtsbruch darstellt, etc. Und ich weiß, dass es auch in Israel Menschen gibt, die diese #Politik bekämpfen. Diese Menschen, die diesen Kampf ganz bewußt als Staatsbürger Israels oder Bewohner dieses Landes führen, wollen nicht die Vernichtung Israels. Sie wollen eine friedliche Entwicklung in der Region, die ohne die Anerkennung und Durchsetzung der Rechte der Palästinenser genauso wie der Israelis nicht zu erreichen ist.

Auch wenn ich nicht mehr glaube, dass dieses Ziel in einer #Zwei-Staaten-Lösung erreichbar ist, würde ich selbstverständlich auch eine solche Lösung begrüßen. Denn das wichtigste, was Palästina/Israel brauchen, ist #Frieden.

#Antisemitism is best understood not as an anthropological constant but as an ever-changing, always delusional reaction of some non-Jews to their experience of an always-evolving #society.
From this point of view, the antisemitism of the 20th and 21st century can be seen as the epitome of anti-emancipatory #ideology, in which hatred of #enlightenment, self-awareness and #freedom are combined. Because capitalist society is uncomprehended, fetishistic and self-mystifying, it contains a tremendous urge towards the delusional concretisation of abstraction (i.e. to put a tangible name and face on the source of distress). To simplify, this need to scapegoat, which seems to me to be one of the decisive elements of anti-Semitism, is, then, inherent to modern #capitalist society. The task of any materialist #critique of antisemitism is to make visible the connection between the antisemites and the society that produces them. In a delusional projection onto the ‘Jewish principle’ and its supposed physical embodiments, antisemites are fighting against social and individual ambivalences, and against individual and social contradictions and crises. This seems to me to be the constant factor in the different manifestations of antisemitism. https://fathomjournal.org/fathom-long-read-adorno-and-iran-critical-theory-and-islamic-antisemitism/ #adorno #israel #iran #education #modernity #capitalism #islamism #nazis #holocaust #lebanon #hezbollah #marx #europe #antifascism

[An introduction]:

  • Walter Sobchak: I told that kraut a fucking thousand times that I don't roll on Shabbos!
  • The Dude: Walter …
  • Walter Sobchak: WELL, THEY CAN FUCKING UNPOST IT! C'mon, Dude - Uh, eventually she'll get tired of her little game and, you know, wander on back.

  • Walter Sobchak: I'm Shomer Shabbos.
  • Donny: What's that, Walter?
  • Walter Sobchak: Saturday, Donny, is Shabbos, the Jewish day of rest. That means that I don't work, I don't drive a car, I don't fucking ride in a car, I don't handle money, I don't turn on the oven, and I sure as shit DON'T FUCKING ROLL!

@ghose [D*]

What’s wrong with taking knee? In many countries people put their hand on their heart, take hat off, pose in a very emotional manner or even cry when their national anthem (a song!) plays even before a f… sport game. So what’s wrong if some people take knee down to reflect respect for those people whose LIVES are not RESPECTED. Taking knee, as that national song, a f… flag, are symbols. I’m sure you understand that. I’m truly respect those “six brave men” that stand (...)

@ghose [D*]... What’s wrong with my offer to suck my cock? … In many western or eastern countries billions of lgbt-activists have a good old tradition to do it! This process is pleasant, safe… warrantable by law and supported by State!

I’m truly respect those brave men or women that suck my dick! And… by the way, to kiss my noble #jewish #ass – as that national song, a flag, are symbols. I’m sure you understand that! And you must to esteem all national traditions!

SHOMMER FUCKING SHABBOS!

Hintergrund | DLF: Das Revival des Kibbuz - Zusammen leben!


Helen Mirren und Anthony Hopkins haben es getan, Sigourney Weaver, Boris Johnson und Jörg Pilawa ebenfalls – sie alle haben schon einmal in einem israelischen Kibbuz gearbeitet, der einst Freiwillige aus der ganzen Welt anzog. In den 90ern war es still geworden um die sozialistischen Kommunen, doch neuerdings stehen sie vor einem großen Revival.

Nach ihrer Blüte in den 1960er- bis 80er-Jahren schien es lange Zeit, als hätten die Kibbuzim ihre historische Mission erfüllt – Land und Wüste waren besiedelt. Die jungen Leute verließen die Gemeinschaft, zogen nach Tel Aviv oder New York, ließen Eltern und Großeltern zurück. Der Zauber der roten Utopie verblasste. Und irgendwann kamen kaum noch Freiwillige. Die Historiker und Soziologen waren sicher: Der Kibbuz ging seinem natürlichen Ende entgegen...

In #Israel ist die nationalistische Rechte auf dem Vormarsch, und das seit geraumer Zeit. Wie kam es dazu? Wer sind die entscheidenden Akteure des Rechtsrucks, welche Ziele und Strategien verfolgen sie? Wer sind ihre internationalen Verbündeten, welche Beziehungen unterhalten sie etwa zu europäischen Rechtsextremisten? Und was macht die israelische Linke, um dagegen Stand zu halten?

Diesen und vielen weiteren Fragen widmet sich der Schwerpunkt unseres Büros in Tel Aviv:

Dead Sea Scroll fragments thought to be blank reveal text



May 15, 2020
Posted in Archives & Collections

Our new research has revealed that four Dead Sea Scroll manuscript fragments housed at The University of Manchester’s John Rylands Library, which were previously thought to be blank, do in fact contain text.

The discovery means that The University of Manchester is the only institution in the UK to possess authenticated textual fragments of the Dead Sea Scrolls.

Unlike the recent cases of forgeries assumed to be Dead Sea Scrolls fragments, all of these small pieces were unearthed in the official excavations of the Qumran caves, and were never passed through the antiquities market.

In the 1950s, the fragments were gifted by the Jordanian government to Ronald Reed, leather expert at the University of Leeds, so he could study their physical and chemical composition. It was assumed that the pieces were ideal for scientific tests, as they were blank and relatively worthless. These were studied and published by Reed and his student John Poole, and then stored safely away.

In 1997 the Reed Collection was donated to The University of Manchester through the initiative of Rylands Professor of Biblical Criticism and Exegesis, George Brooke. These fragments have been stored in Reed’s own labelled boxes in The John Rylands Library, and have been relatively untouched since then.

When examining the fragments for the new study, Professor Joan Taylor thought it possible that one of them did actually contain a letter, and therefore decided to photograph all of the existing fragments over 1 cm that appear blank to the naked eye, using multispectral imaging.

51 fragments were imaged front and back. Six were identified for further detailed investigation – of these, it was established that four have readable Hebrew/Aramaic text written in carbon-based ink. The study has also revealed ruled lines and small vestiges of letters on other fragments.

The most substantial fragment has the remains of four lines of text with 15-16 letters, most of which are only partially preserved, but the word Shabbat (Sabbath) can be clearly read. This text (Ryl4Q22) may be related to the biblical book of Ezekiel (46:1-3). One piece with text is the edge of a parchment scroll section, with sewn thread, and the first letters of two lines of text may be seen to the left of this binding.

“Looking at one of the fragments with a magnifying glass, I thought I saw a small, faded letter – a lamed, the Hebrew letter ‘L’,” said Professor Taylor. “Frankly, since all these fragments were supposed to be blank and had even been cut into for leather studies, I also thought I might be imagining things. But then it seemed maybe other fragments could have very faded letters too.”

“With new techniques for revealing ancient texts now available, I felt we had to know if these letters could be exposed. There are only a few on each fragment, but they are like missing pieces of a jigsaw puzzle you find under a sofa.”

[WIKI]:
The Dead Sea Scrolls (also the Qumran Caves Scrolls) are ancient Jewish religious manuscripts that were found in the Qumran Caves in the Judaean Desert, near Ein Feshkha on the northern shore of the Dead Sea in the West Bank. Scholarly consensus dates these scrolls from the last three centuries BCE and the first century CE. The texts have great historical, religious, and linguistic significance because they include the second-oldest known surviving manuscripts of works later included in the Hebrew Bible canon, along with deuterocanonical and extra-biblical manuscripts which preserve evidence of the diversity of religious thought in late Second Temple Judaism. Almost all of the Dead Sea Scrolls are held by the state of Israel in the Shrine of the Book on the grounds of the Israel Museum, but ownership of the scrolls is disputed by Jordan and Palestine.

Many thousands of written fragments have been discovered in the Dead Sea area. They represent the remnants of larger manuscripts damaged by natural causes or through human interference, with the vast majority holding only small scraps of text. However, a small number of well-preserved, almost intact manuscripts have survived – fewer than a dozen among those from the Qumran Caves. Researchers have assembled a collection of 981 different manuscripts – discovered in 1946/47 and in 1956 – from 11 caves. The 11 Qumran Caves lie in the immediate vicinity of the Hellenistic-period Jewish settlement at Khirbet Qumran in the eastern Judaean Desert, in the West Bank. The caves are located about one mile (1.6 kilometres) west of the northwest shore of the Dead Sea, whence they derive their name. Scholarly consensus dates the Qumran Caves Scrolls from the last three centuries BCE and the first century CE. Bronze coins found at the same sites form a series beginning with John Hyrcanus (in office 135–104 BCE) and continuing until the period of the First Jewish–Roman War (66–73 CE), supporting the radiocarbon and paleographic dating of the scrolls.

In the larger sense, the Dead Sea Scrolls include manuscripts from additional Judaean Desert sites, dated as early as the 8th century BCE and as late as the 11th century CE.

Biblical texts older than the Dead Sea Scrolls have been discovered only in two silver scroll-shaped amulets containing portions of the Priestly Blessing from the Book of Numbers, excavated in Jerusalem at Ketef Hinnom and dated c. 600 BCE; some scholars also include the controversial Shapira Scroll. The third-oldest surviving known piece of the Torah, the En-Gedi Scroll, consists of a portion of Leviticus found in the Ein Gedi synagogue, burnt in the 6th century CE and analyzed in 2015. Research has dated it palaeographically to the 1st or 2nd century CE, and using the C14 method to sometime between the 2nd and 4th centuries CE.

Yom HaZikaron 2020 - one mnute of silence and the siren

Yom HaZikaron (Hebrew: יוֹם הַזִּכָּרוֹן‎, lit. 'Memorial Day') is Israel's official remembrance day, enacted into law in 1963. While Yom HaZikaron has been traditionally dedicated to fallen soldiers, commemoration has also been extended to civilian victims of terrorism.

The day opens with a siren the preceding evening at 20:00 (8:00 pm), given that in the Hebrew calendar system, a day begins at sunset. The siren is heard all over the country and lasts for one minute, during which Israelis stop everything, including driving on highways, and stand in silence, commemorating the fallen and showing respect.
By law, all places of entertainment are closed on the eve of Yom HaZikaron, and broadcasting and educational bodies note the solemnity of the day. Regular television programs cease for the day, and the names and ranks of every soldier who died for Israel are displayed in a 24-hour television broadcast.

A two-minute siren is sounded at 11:00 the following morning, which marks the opening of the official memorial ceremonies and private remembrance gatherings at each cemetery where soldiers are buried.

Many Israelis visit the resting places of loved ones throughout the day.

Memorial candles are lit in homes, army camps, schools, synagogues, and public places, and flags are lowered to half staff. Throughout the day, serving and retired military personnel serve as honor guards at war memorials throughout the country, and the families of the fallen participate in memorial ceremonies at military cemeteries.

Channel 33 has screened the names of all civilians killed in pogroms since 1851, and all fallen from 1860 (considered the date of the beginning of the Yishuv by the Israeli Ministry of Defense), in chronological order (rank, name, Hebrew date deceased and secular date) over the course of the day.

KI soll über unsere Gesundheit wachen


Rüstungsfirmen wittern neues Geschäftsfeld

Nach diversen Vorschlägen für Corona-Apps kommen auch aus anderen Entwicklungsrichtungen "ideen" zur Seuchenbekämpfung. Selbst die aus digitalen Währungen bekannte Blockchain soll herangezogen werden, um die Durchseuchung der Bevölkerung fälschungsicher zu dokumentieren.

Inzwischen sind auch verschiedene Rüstungsfirmen auf diesen lukrativen Zug aufgesprungen. Wenn jetzt wieder Geschäfte und bald auch Restaurants öffnen, dann wird neben einem Vorrat an ca. 12 Milliarden Masken allein in Deutschland auch ein Bedraf auf Messung der Körpertemperatur entstehen. Dann könnten Menschen mit Fieber, die "mögliche Corona-Gefährder sein können", herauszupicken.

Diesen soll dann der Zugang zu Ländern, Städten oder Räumen verwehrt werden dürfen. Dazu kann es aber auch schon kommen, wenn jemand sich zu oft räuspert oder mehrfach hustet. KI-Software soll dann ein zufälliges Husten vom Krankhaften unterscheiden können - wieder entscheidet die Maschine über den Menschen.

Telepolis berichtet, dass Rafael Advanced Defense Systems, einer größten Rüstungskonzerne in Israel, eine Wärmekamera entwickelt hat, die die Körpertemperatur der Menschen misst, die durch eine Tür gehen, und die Werte dem Sicherheitspersonal ausgibt. Damit kann auch die Temperatur eines jeden Menschen einzeln in einer Gruppe gemessen werden. In der weiteren Entwicklung wäre denkbar, dass Menschen mit erhöhter Temperatur an einer Schleuse der Zugang verwehrt wird, wenn die Temperaturmessung mit Gesichtserkennung erfolgt. Ein Problem könnte dann nur entstehen, wenn die Menschen mit Atemschutzmasken vermummt sind.

Und nach der Corona-Krise? Die Hersteller der sekundenschnellen und berührungslosen Temperatirmessung hoffen, dass die Temperaturkontrolle auch nach der Conoravirus-Pandemie bleiben wird. So sagt Matan Melamed von Iron-Drone: "Jeder wird sich sicherer mit Temperaturmessungen in der Zukunft fühlen." Ach, wirklich ...

Und schon schließt sich wieder der Kreis, denn wenn man dann der Temperaturmessung noch Daten von Fitnessarmbändern und Smartwatches der Menschen hinzufügt, wie es die RKI-App "Corona-Datenspende" vorsieht, dann werden nicht nur mögliche Gefährder herausgefischt, sondern man kann auch Menschen mit anderen auffälligen Krankheitszeichen erkennen und ihnen eine Behandlung vorschlagen. Auf in die Hygienisierung der Gesellschaft ...

Drohnen töten weiterhin Unschuldige


Sendung mit Diskussion zu Drohnentötungen

Seit Jahren setzen wir uns für die Ächtung von Drohnen und autonomen Waffen ein. Über ein Jahr touren wir mit der Ausstellung der Drohnen-Quilts durch die Lande, zuletzt zum Friedensratschlag nach Kassel im letzten Dezember..

Die US Regierung setzt weiterhin Drohnen für "gezielte Tötungen" ein, die mit ihren Hellfire Raketen in der Regel ein Krater von 30m Durchmesser hinterlassen und meist Unschuldige töten. In Deutschland hat die für eine Bewaffnung der 5 im letzten Sommer geleasten israelischen Heron TP notwendige ethische Debatte noch immer nicht stattgefunden. Dies ist eine vom Bundestag 2013 beschlossene Voraussetzung, die auch so im Koalitionsvertrag steht. Trotzdem wird auf dem Stützpunkt Tel Nof der Drohnenkrieg geübt.

Den letzten spektakulären und völkerrechtswidrigen Einsatz der USA, den Mord an dem iranischen General Soleimani, beim Besuch im Irak nimmt die Friedensaktivistin und Filmemacherin Elsa Rassbach zum Anlass, um auf die Verstrickungen Deutschlands in den US Drohnenkrieghinzuweisen.

Die in den USA geborene Filmemacherin Elsa Rassbach arbeitet seit langer Zeit am Thema Drohnen, besonders auch zur Bedeutung von Ramstein für die US-Kriegsführung in vielen Ländern Afrikas und des Nahen und Mittleren Ostens. Und der Sozialwissenschaftler und Nahost-Kenner Gilles Kepel beschrieb am 13. Januar 2020 in der Süddeutschen Zeitung den Einsatz von Drohnen als "Eine neue Ära der Kriegsführung".

Weil eigene Menschenleben der jeweils die Drohnen einsetzenden Länder geschont werden können - die Drohnen sind unbemannt - sinkt die Schwelle zur Kriegführung. Gleichzeitig steigen die Opferzahlen, weil bei den gezielten Tötungen sehr häufig in der Nähe befindliche Unbeteiligte und Unschuldige getötet werden, die zur falschen Zeit am falschen Ort waren.

Die Ermordung des iranischen Generals Qassim Soleimani durch eine Drohne, bei der mit hoher Wahrscheinlichkeit auch die die Airbase Ramstein in der Pfalz eine Rolle spielte, zeigt die Aktualität des Themas.

Die Sendung vom 19.2. geht auf die Hintergründe zu den Kommando-Strukturen zwischen den USA und Deutschland erläutern und auf völkerrechtliche Aspekte ein. Aktuell finden Debatten in Berlin auch über die Möglichkeit der Bewaffnung von deutschen Drohnen statt, die von einigen Politikern gefordert, nach vielen Meinungsumfragen aber von der Mehrheit der Bevölkerung abgelehnt wird.

Das Gespräch mit Elsa Rassbach ist weiterhin bei Youtube zu sehen.
Die Ausstellung der Drohnen-Quilts, zum Gedenken an die durch Drohnen getöteten Kinder kann auch in diesem Jahr ausgeliehen werden, um es einem breiten Publikum zugänglich zu machen. Zur Bestellung reicht eine Mail an kontakt@drohnen-quilts.de .

How many bytes are in one kilobyte? … or “The price of the ONE Jewish life (and Freedom) - steady increase”

My simple arithmetic… :)

One litre = 1000 millilitres

One kilobyte = 1024 bytes

Six(!) Israeli soldiers = 4 830 killers and other bloody terrorists (prisoners exchange, 1983)

Three(!) Israeli soldiers = 1 150 “-” (prisoners exchange, 1985)

Three(!) dead Israeli soldiers = 436 “-” (prisoners exchange, 2004)

One(!) Israeli soldier (man: Gilad Shalit) = 1027 “-” (prisoners exchange, 2011)

One(!) Israeli soldier (woman: Naama Issachar) = Alexander courtyard in Jerusalem(?) [1](2020)

Pidyon Shvuyim


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pidyon_Shvuyim
Pidyon Shvuyim (Hebrew: פִּדְיוֹן שְׁבוּיִים, literally: Redemption of Captives) is a religious duty in Judaism to bring about the release of a fellow Jew captured by slave dealers or robbers, or imprisoned unjustly by the authorities. The release of the prisoner is typically secured by a ransom paid by the Jewish community. It is considered an important commandment in Jewish law. he Talmud calls pidyon shvuyim a “mitzvah rabbah”, a great mitzvah, as captivity is viewed as even worse than starvation and death (Bava Batra 8b).

Maimonides writes: “The redeeming of captives takes precedence over supporting the poor or clothing them. There is no greater mitzvah than redeeming captives for the problems of the captive include being hungry, thirsty, unclothed, and they are in danger of their lives too. Ignoring the need to redeem captives goes against these Torah laws: “Do not harden your heart or shut your hand against your needy fellow” (Devarim 15:7); “Do not stand idly by while your neighbor’s blood is shed” (Vayikra 19:16). And misses out on the following mitzvot: “You must surely open your hand to him or her” (Devarim 15:8); “…Love your neighbor as yourself” (Vayikra 19:18); “Rescue those who are drawn to death” (Proverbs 24:11) and "… there is no mitzvah greater than the redeeming of captives.” (Maimonides, Mishneh Torah, Hilchot Matanot Aniyim 8:10-11). The Shulchan Aruch adds: “Every moment that one delays in freeing captives, in cases where it is possible to expedite their freedom, is considered to be tantamount to murder.” (Shulchan Aruch, Yoreh De’ah 252:3)

Naama is free


Naama Issachar was born in the United States and moved to Israel when she was 16 years old. She holds dual U.S.-Israel citizenship.

Issachar joined the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) and served as a military intelligence combat soldier. She was a “Lone Soldier,” a foreign Jewish man or woman who volunteers to serve in the IDF. Lone Soldiers account for approximately two percent of the Israeli military and are highly admired.

Naama is free, but our joy is mixed with tears



The release of a person from prison is always a joyous moment. When you’ve put your own effort into fighting for this individual’s release and you know for sure she is innocent, the joy doubles. Which is why I certainly am genuinely happy about my client Naama Issachar’s release, her return home and reunification with her loved ones. My heartfelt congratulations to all!

We have witnessed impressive solidarity with Naama on the part of Israeli society, lawyers, journalists, the diplomatic corps, and the government, including the highest-ranking officials. This is an inspiring example of effective collaboration between civil society, professional communities and the authorities. The story also deeply touched Russian journalists, lawyers, human rights activists, public figures, and ordinary people who simply cared. All of this instills the most genuine respect and appreciation.

It was impossible not to free Naama: her sentence was blatantly unjust, and we clearly exposed that fact at the hearing in the court of appeal, which received close international attention and interest, both public and non-public. The response given by the court of appeal was emblematic of the injustice that characterized this entire case: it contains 20 pages of the defense’s contentions regarding the irrefutable flaws in the sentence, and one page — a meaningless declaration — on why the defense’s claims were dismissed, without the slightest attempt to provide any substantive arguments.

And this is the very drop of poison that turns today’s simple joy into joy mixed with tears. Yes, Naama is free. But her case was a travesty of justice. She spent nine and a half months in detention, branded as a drug offender, an utterly bogus charge devoid of factual or legal grounds. Is that fair? Is that legal? Is that just? Despite the President’s assurance, everything is not okay.

One of the Soldiers

Like the others, he wears a uniform, but he is my brother. Like the others, he carries a gun, but he is my friend. Each soldier is unique through the eyes of someone who looks up to them.
