Ministers Asked to Block Shai Nitzan Appointment


The Mateh 'Arim (Cities Headquarters) movement is urging people to flood ministers and their staff against the appointment of former deputy prosecutor Shai Nitzan as Deputy Attorney General for Special Assignments. The appointment is on the agenda of Sunday's cabinet meeting.

An e-mail from Mateh Arim says, "This is a disaster. Shai Nitzan is a bitter enemy of the settlement enterprise. If he receives the appointment, he will do anything to ruin and destroy every good part of Judea and Samaria." It notes Nitzan's part in the arrest of demonstrators against the government's removal of Jews from Gaza and northern Samaria in 2005 and the closing of files against violent police officers.
