"It is my opinion that Neve Gordon has gotten into bed with neo-Nazis, Holocaust justice deniers, and anti-Semites." -- Dershowitz
At long last the Palestinian assassin of an Israeli cabinet minister Rehavam Ze'evi has been formally sentenced.  Haaretz reports: "Hamdi Qur'an was convicted of the 2001 murder and other terror activities. He was taken into Israeli custody in 2006, after international monitors left the Jericho Prison, where he had been held."

But there is more justice that needs to be done.  What about the "solidarity protesters" who served as human shield for Hamdi Qur'an when he was being hidden inside the Palestinian Authority offices in Ramallah by Yassir Arafat? Back when the IDF was attempting to apprehend the murderer?

Just to remind you, groups of anti-Israel "solidarity protesters" illegally entered Ramallah in violation of Israeli law and army regulations in order to prevent IDF forces from apprehending terrorists being hidden at the time by the PLO in violation of its Oslo obligations.  Among the terrorists being so protected was Hamdi Qur'an..  The "human shields" protecting him included some Israeli far-leftists. 

Among those who illegally interfered with Israel's efforts to apprehend Qur'an was Neve Gordon, a radically anti-Israel far-leftist lecturer in political science at Ben Gurion University.  Gordon may be best known for having his anti-Israel articles published on the Neo-Nazi web site of Ernst Zundel, for his campaign of defamation against his own army commander, and for his recent shilling on behalf of Neo-Nazi Norman Finkelstein.  Gordon joined anti-Semites and jihadniks in a conference supporting Finkelstein, where he proliferated anti-Semitic misrepresentation of the "Zionist Lobby" as an anti-democratic bogeyman.

Gordon was arrested for his illegal interference with IDf anti-terror operations.  Prof. Alan Dershowitz last year described Gordon thus: "It is my opinion that Neve Gordon has gotten into bed with neo-Nazis, Holocaust justice deniers, and anti-Semites. He is a despicable example of a self-hating Jew and a self-hating Israeli."  Officials at Ben Gurion University have long backed Gordon's anti-Israel and Solidarity-with-Terrorists activism.

We are wondering - is there room in Qur'an's cell for those who illegally served as his human shield?
