'Israeli Arab' 'human rights activist' admits spying for Hezbullah

When 'Israeli Arab' Amir Makhoul, who headed the Israeli-Arab organization Ittijah, a group that has rejected anti-terror clauses in funding agreements, was arrested and charged with spying for Hezbullah in May, Amnesty International strongly condemned the arrest. Now that he has admitted to spying for Hezbullah, asks Yaacov Lozowick, will Amnesty apologize? This is from the second link.
Amir Makhoul, who was convicted Wednesday, confessed to charges of espionage and aggravated espionage, according to a statement issued by the Justice Ministry. Under the terms of a plea bargain deal, Makhoul also pleaded guilty to charges to “contact with a foreign agent and conspiracy to aid the enemy in time of war.”

Sentencing will take place in December, with the prosecution seeking a prison term of 10 years, and defense attorneys hoping for a maximum seven-year sentence.

Makhoul was arrested by the Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) earlier in the year, together with Omar Radwan Said of Kafr Kana. Both were accused of spying for the Lebanese-based terrorist group, and both denied the accusations at the time.

The arrests set off a wave of angry protests in Haifa's Arab community. The Arab advocacy group Adalah charged at the time that the arrests were politically motivated because the suspects were not members of mainstream political parties.

Prosecutors for the state said that Makhoul's admission has put an end to accusations of political persecution.
I guess he wasn't a political prisoner, was he? And you wonder why we think 'Israeli Arabs' are disloyal to the State of Israel. Makhoul's brother, who currently heads the organization, is a former Knesset member.

Carl, I realize you are an advocate for the memory of Kahane--but saying "'Israeli Arabs" per se are disloyal does not ipso facto make the case that the Arab sector as a whole has to be proscribed, nor make the case that tthe sector should be treated collectively as traitors or potential traitors (rather than as a community that, for a variety of reasons has generated intolerable behaviors in its members and evidenced many instances of alienation and hostility).

Democratic norms were not attractive because they permitted assimilated Jews to turn their backs on tradition and ape the decadent goyiim, but because of what fills the vacuum when these norms of governance are abolished.

Revolutions often eat their own.
