YNET: Teitel's associates: He's Gone Mad
Sources close to 'Jewish terrorist' say Prison Service trying to conceal his deteriorating mental state before court decides if he is fit to stand trial. In one incident, they say, he injured himself while 'fighting demons' in his cell

"Jewish terrorist" Yaakov (Jack) Teitel, who was charged with murdering two Arabs, sustained light injuries to his hand at the Ayalon Prison when he imagined he was fighting demons and threw a pot at a mirror in his cell, Ynet learned overnight Sunday...
Funny how Jews who are "charged" with an offense, yet to be proven in court, are called "terrorists." Yet, Arabs, calling themselves "Palestinians," a made up identity based on a Roman applied word designed to wipe out the Jewish connection to the Land of Israel, are called "freedom fighters."
Actually, it is not funny at all. It is quite sad, especially when it's Jews doing the name calling.

Now, he appears to be a false deity. Remember this picture, courtesy of The Muqata (5768/2007)?
But, I digress...
...In one incident Teitel "fought a demon" he claimed was hiding in his mirror. He threw a pot at the mirror and lightly injured his hand. In another incident Teitel was found unraveling the velvet curtain covering the Ark of the prison's synagogue, claiming demons were hovering around it.
One of Teitel's associates said he should be committed to a mental hospital, "but the Shin Bet is preventing it because in a month's time there is a hearing on his mental state and the prosecution claims he is fit to stand trial. If he is committed the State would essentially be admitting its mistake, so for the time being he is suffering and other inmates are suffering from his behavior." (Read more...)
What is the current mental state of Ya'akov Teitel?
As usual, when Israel's Shabba"k (General Security Service) in involved, we shall never know for sure.
To the best of my knowledge, there has been no assessment of an established baseline. In other words, there does not seem to be any record of Ya'akov Teitel's mental state pre-incarceration.
If you recall, Teitel was in the custody of the Shabba"k for weeks before it was released to the public. The Shabba"k is accountable to no one, with the possible exception of the Prime Minister himself. So, who knows what occurred during the time of Teitel's initial custody, what "methods" of "questioning" were used, and what drugs were administered to "calm" and "subdue" him?
This blogger will not speculate to what or may have occurred, and thus risk "disappearing" for a time. You will have to use your imagination.
And, as I have suggested before, if you don't hear from me for extended periods of time, you should assume the worst.
