Rawi Sultani - Israeli Arab, Traitor
Jews in Israel keep giving Arabs chances to show some loyalty, and keep getting slapped in their face. I'm a strong supporter of co-existence (because the alternative is unthinkable), and I keep getting disappointed.
I can only hope to hear some words of condemnation from responsible Israeli Arab leaders... not optimistic here. The Israeli Arab leadership has decided to voice extremism, there's every reason for them to share the blame for this.
Israeli-Arab indicted for Hizbullah plot to assassinate Ashkenazi
Hizbullah recruited an Israeli-Arab and ordered him to collect intelligence on IDF Chief of General Staff Lt.-Gen. Gabi Ashkenazi ahead of plans to assassinate him to avenge the death of the guerrilla group's military leader Imad Mughniyeh.
On Monday, an indictment was filed at the Petah Tikva District Court against Rawi Sultani, a 23-year-old Israeli-Arab from the town of Tira, alleging that he was recruited by Hizbullah in the summer of 2008 when he traveled to Morocco to attend a Balad Party summer camp.
The pan-Arab summer camp takes place every year in a different country, and was also attended by other Israeli-Arabs who are Balad activists.
During his stay at the camp, Sultani allegedly met Hizbullah operative Salman Harab, and provided him with information about Ashkenazi, particularly his routine at the Kfar Saba country club where the two occasionally worked out together.
The predominantly Arab town of Tira is just north of Kfar Saba, Ashkenazi's hometown.
Harab, a 26-year-old Lebanese Shi'ite Hizbullah operative, met personally with the group of Israeli Balad activists, introduced himself as a Hizubllah member, and gave them a lecture about the conflict and struggle against Israel, read the charge sheet.
Balad should be outlawed. (except that I think it might be right now a counter intelligent net to mark all supporters of Israel's enemy...)
