A few days ago the murderer of Israeli cabinet minister Rehavam ‘Ghandi’ Zeevi was at last sentenced by a Jerusalem court to a prison term of life plus 80 years. The bizarre sentence was because terrorhoids sentenced to mere life in prison sometimes get released, like when they get ill in prison, thanks to inane misplaced ‘compassion.’ (Nuclear traitor Mordecai Vanunu is about to be awarded early release from prison because he claims to have a health problem.)

According to the news story as reported on INN: ‘Majdi Rahima Rimawi was convicted on July 29, 2008 of five separate charges for his role in masterminding the assassination of the nationalist minister outside his Jerusalem hotel room at the Hyatt Hotel near Mount Scopus on October 17, 2001. The 43-year-old terrorist planned, ordered and organized the gang that attacked “Ghandi,” as Ze’evi was affectionately known…. Ze’evi was shot to death by terrorists Bassal Asmar and Hamdi Kur’an, both of whom have already been convicted and are serving life terms in prison.’

Now it is all fine and good that the murderer is behind bars, although I would consider it a lot finer and gooder if he were dancing at the end of a noose. THAT would eliminate any risk that he might get released as part of some new KADIMA bargain sale of terrorhoids.

But it is important to bear in mind that this atrocity has not yet undergone closure and will not have done so until the OTHER people involved are also brought to justice, and in particular not until those who protected the murderers and prevented their arrest are punished.

The murderers of Zeevi were kept hidden in the “Mukata’a” headquarters of Yassir Arafat in Ramallah, in defiance of all the obligations of the Palestinian Authority under the Oslo accords. While hidden there, the Israel Defense Forces attempted to apprehend the murderers and had the headquarters surrounded. But then a group of “human shields” and “Solidarity with Terrorism” protesters from the anti-Israel radical Left entered Ramallah illegally and interfered with the attempts to arrest the murderers. Years went by before they were finally caught by Israel. 

Among those leading the “Solidarity with Terrorism” human shields that illegally interfered with the attempt to arrest the murderers in Ramallah was Neve Gordon, an anti-Israel extremist at Ben Gurion University. Gordon considers Israel to be a fascist, apartheid terrorist entity and recently has been calling for Israel’s elimination altogether as part of the so-called “One-State Solution,” in which Israel will be enfolded inside a larger Arab-dominated Islamofascist-controlled state. The “One-State Solution” of the anti-Semitic Left should better be called the Rwanda solution to the Jewish problem. Gordon was also a cheerleader for Vanunu and proclaimed him a heroic role model. Above is the photo of Gordon and Arafat from the Israeli press, in solidarity embrace as they defied the Israeli soldiers surrounding Arafat's headquarters and prevented the murderers in the building behind them from being caught.

Gordon and his terrorism-cheerleader colleagues have not been called upon to answer for their role in keeping the murderers of Zeevi free for so long. 

Menawhile, Gordon was promoted and granted tenure at Ben Gurion University on the basis of his large volumes of anti-Israel propaganda being churned out by him and misrepresented as research scholarship.  This illustrates that in some departments at Ben Gurion University serious academic standards are dead.

Gordon also spent considerable time on the Ben Gurion University payroll promoting and defending Neo-Nazi Norman Finkelstein. DePaul University had the academic integrity that Ben Gurion University lacks and last year fired Finkelstein for lack of serious scholarly work and for trying to build an academic career on crude anti-Israel and anti-Jewish hate propaganda.

Last year in the Jerusalem Post Prof. Alan Dershowitz 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."
