Since the Israeli Minister of National Security, Itamar Ben Gvir, assumed his position in a government known to be the most right-wing in the history of Israel, his past followed him in many ways. impenetrable to which they can resort to defend their crimes.
Madi bin Gvir continued to pursue him that time as well, but in a different way, as he was highlighted with the Jerusalem operation, in which 7 settlers were killed at the hands of the Palestinian youth, Khairy Alqam, who went out to avenge the martyrs of Jenin camp who rose a day before him, after storming The Israeli occupation forces of Jenin camp, the incident was like dominoes falling sequentially, as Madi Ben Gvir clashed with the incident.
Ben Gvir is the lawyer who defended the murderer of Khairi Alqam, the grandfather of martyr Khairy Alqam, who was killed while walking to his work at dawn, when he was stabbed by an Israeli settler, Haim Perlman, who killed the martyr’s grandfather and three others, according to the Jewish Telegraphic Insider newspaper.
Although Haim carried out his crime in 1998, he was arrested in 2010, on suspicion of killing Khairi Alqam, but Ben Gvir struggled to defend him, especially with the intertwining interests of the lawyer and the accused who joined the Kahane Hay terrorist movement from a young age, known for its hostility. Strong to the Arabs, the founder of the movement is Benjamin Kahane, the son of the extremist Rabbi Meir Kahane, who founded the Kach movement, which was banned until last May by the United States, the sponsor of the Ibrahimi Mosque massacre, to which Ben Gvir joined since his youth.
Perelman did not spend a long time in prison, despite his complaint that he was subjected to torture and insults inside his prison, but he stayed for only 31 days, with his administrative detention, i. Bin Ghafir, who accompanied me throughout the trial.
The Washington Post reported that the Israeli General Security Service suspected Perelman of killing 4 Palestinians, so it administratively detained him without charge until the court issued a decision to release him and place him under house arrest in the Gush Etzion area, rejecting the police request at the time. By extending Perelman’s detention period, for an additional 8 days, and Perelman was prevented from contacting many people, according to the decision of the security forces at the time.
In this way, the extremist minister faces a new obstacle, with some blaming him for the Jerusalem operation, which he actually faced. People shouted at him, “We trusted you, what are you going to do? The responsibility is on you.”
Aviv Bochinsky, a political analyst and former chief of staff, for Netanyahu, believes that Ben Gvir is likely to lose a wide audience among his supporters, who voted for him, because of the Jerusalem operation, saying, “Many voted for Ben Gvir in the hope that he will fulfill the purpose by allowing the security forces.” To work comfortably without restricting them, but in reality it seems that his promises are not real.”
Thus, the Netanyahu government, which was known to be the most right-wing in the history of Israel, and whose age did not exceed the threshold of a few weeks, receives a new obstacle, as to whether it can preserve the national security of Israel. At the expense of the judiciary system, in addition to its strong hostility towards Arabs and Muslims, with its minister Bin Ghafir repeating successive incursions into Al-Aqsa, and tightening the screws on Palestinian prisoners, in a gesture not unusual for a minister to raise a banner reading “Expel the Arab enemy.”
