The Shin Bet and the police have arrested two Palestinian men from the Gaza Strip who entered Israel using forged medical documents, it was cleared for publication on Monday.
The suspects, Mahmoud Maatouk, 30, and Ayoob Maatouk, 51, are both residents of Jabalia, and Mahmoud is a known Hamas member.
According to the Shin Bet, the two men entered Israel on January 7, after presenting authorities with documentation stating Mahmoud was in a state of multiple-organ failure, and that he required immediate hospitalization at the Al-Makassed Hospital in East Jerusalem. His evacuation required an ambulance.
The next day, it turned out the two had left the hospital and reached Umm al-Fahm on their own, while perfectly healthy.
During questioning by the Shin Bet, the two admitted to forging medical documents with the aid of a relative, who was in contact with a doctor in the Gaza Strip.
They said they paid about NIS 7,000 for the documents, which stated Mahmoud was a paraplegic. They also gave details regarding other Palestinians who have entered Israel in a similar manner. (cont.)
So much for Israel's world famous security measures!
Now, I suppose that if I call these men lying Arabs, I will be demonized as a racist. Then, when I remind you that these men are members of Hamas, you'll pause for a moment, and then try to change the subject.
Notice the map of what they believe belongs to them.
If you want to know about Arabs, and their threat to us, all you have to do is read the Tana"kh and works of HaZa"L (Our Sages z"l). When will we ever learn?
The report concludes with...
Shin Bet officials said Monday, "This is a very severe incident, which shows the cynical exploitation of Israel's willingness to answer the humanitarian needs of Gaza Strip residents, in order to illegally enter Israel, something which could bring about the tightening of entry policies and eventually harm the people of the Gaza Strip."This is not the first time that Shin Bet has warned against the dangers of policies and practices of the Israeli Government it serves.
The Shin Bet may be right this time, but this incident, and others like it, could have been avoided, if Torah Law was used as a guide to determine the correct course of action toward Arabs, instead of our Western/galuth feelings.
Unfortunately, high level government officials find Torah loyalty and observance to be more of an existential threat to the so-called "Jewish Democratic," State of Israel than Arab terrorism.
