Palestinians Sue Israel
By Micah Halpern

Sunday December 11, 2005

I'm Predicting:

Avi Dichter, the former head of the "Shin Bet," Israel's Secret Intelligence Agency, has been served with papers in a civil suit in the United States.

The plaintiffs are the families of 14 Palestinians who claim that Dichter, in his role as director of the Shin Bet, was responsible for the death of their loved ones. Specifically, a one ton bomb dropped by the Israeli Air Force in July of 2002 that hit its mark, a building that housed Salah Shehedah, a senior Hamas leader.

The case is based on international law under the Torture Victims Act and the US Alien Tort Claims Act to apply jurisdiction in the US.
This is the very legal procedure used by Holocaust survivors to pursue their Nazi guards.
The papers were served while Dichter was in NY, attending a charity benefit.

Here is the problem:
Dichter was head of an intelligence agency. His job was to gather intel to protect Israel. Hamas is a sworn enemy of Israel. Sheheda was responsible for planning numerous attacks against Israeli civilians and he sought sanctuary around innocent Palestinians.

This will not hold up in court. No way.
