American detained in the Russian Compound

Written by David Ben-Ariel

Nobody arrested me. I was DETAINED when I faithfully reported torepparttar police office at 9 a.m. Monday morning, January 9, 1996 (day before my birthday)repparttar 149849 day after The Jerusalem Post published on their front page an article shedding light on what they were doing inrepparttar 149850 dark.

After my initial interrogation of six and one half hours,repparttar 149851 Thursday before, I reported, as demanded, torepparttar 149852 police station Friday morning, Saturday morning, Sunday morning, and then Monday morningrepparttar 149853 fellow who had actually been nice to me, he said his name was Moshe, was ordered to serve me a deportation order. He expected me to sign it and, APPALLED, I purposely droppedrepparttar 149854 accursed paper from my hands and let it fall torepparttar 149855 floor where it belonged! I refused to sign it.

They put me in that dungeon calledrepparttar 149856 Russian Compound, built hundreds of years ago byrepparttar 149857 Turks, and which has since been toured by Israeli parliament members saying it should be torn down! I was in a cell made for ten and at one time we had twenty one people in it, with mats lying all overrepparttar 149858 floor and bed bugs crushed onrepparttar 149859 walls and everyone but me (byrepparttar 149860 grace of God) had welts on them from their bites!

We had one "bathroom" for all of us in that cell: it was a literal hole inrepparttar 149861 floor, andrepparttar 149862 shower pipe (no showerhead) was just over that hole, and a filthy sink, and everyone had to practically beg for toilet paper. I was there for over two weeks before being deported, after being brought beforerepparttar 149863 Jerusalem magistrate (who refused to release me, being represented by famous Israeli lawyer Naftali Warzberger), and later before Israel's High Court who agreed there was no reason I shouldn't have been set free, that there was no risk of flight, but now they were just going to deport me since my citizenship request was denied.

Global/Israeli Corruption!

What depth of blind insanity has inflicted itself upon Israel's politicians, and such as George W. Bush and Condoleeza Rice?!!?? So, in order to bring about disarray withinrepparttar ranks of those opposingrepparttar 149706 Disengagement, a specially trained "Gestapo/KGB type" unit is to be deployed a week beforerepparttar 149707 Withdrawal begins, to totally disarmrepparttar 149708 "settlers," and to drag protest leaders from their beds inrepparttar 149709 middle ofrepparttar 149710 night.. It would appear then, thatrepparttar 149711 authorities have identified whorepparttar 149712 protest leaders are, where they reside, andrepparttar 149713 magnitude of their "threat" torepparttar 149714 Withdrawal! Obviously, they expect a great deal of resistance! I hope their prediction is accurate! The resistance must become even more organized, so that everyone knows what they must do, regardless of whetherrepparttar 149715 protest leaders are incarcerated or not! What they fail to comprehend, is that those apprehended will in fact become hero's, strengtheningrepparttar 149716 resolve and bravery ofrepparttar 149717 anti-withdrawal folk. But what is worrisome, isrepparttar 149718 fact that police and military heavy-handed tactics are being proposed at all! Ariel Sharon obviously feelsrepparttar 149719 residents of Gush Katif andrepparttar 149720 Shomron are now to be considered enemies of Israel, and are to be treated as such! But while he gives orders to incarcerate peaceful Israeli citizens who loverepparttar 149721 Land, guns are being awarded torepparttar 149722 enemy PA, to "encourage them." Disarm and incarcerate law-abiding, loyal citizens, and arm their enemies!! Did Sharon and his henchmen have an identity swap while they were sleeping one dark night? Have they been switched to become "Palestinians?" Or is it perhaps what they have been eating for breakfast? How does one win, or avert, a war? Apparently,repparttar 149723 strategy is to disarm your own citizens who have indicated by both word and action that they will not resort to violence against their own officials, to make certain they cannot defend themselves, even against true enemies such as hostile terrorist Palestinians, who everyone now agrees may userepparttar 149724 Withdrawal proceedings to stage attacks. Terrorize innocent families inrepparttar 149725 middle ofrepparttar 149726 night. And, atrepparttar 149727 same time, "encourage"repparttar 149728 real enemies by arming them! Now, that's a novel way to defeat one's enemies!! After all, enemies need allrepparttar 149729 "encouragement" they can get!! Right? Oh yes!! Inform everyone thatrepparttar 149730 PA has become peaceful in intent, becauserepparttar 149731 atrocities have "slowed-down," even though they have still not taken decisive steps to permanently disarmrepparttar 149732 terrorists. Even one rocket attack, one bombing attempt, one suicide mission plot, is still an act of terror! Sincerepparttar 149733 so-called cease-fire agreement of Sharm el Sheik,repparttar 149734 attacks have continued! Would someone like to please enlighten us as to what constitutes a cease-fire?
