Twilight Zone / Caught on camera

By Gideon Levy


This is Israeli justice in a nutshell: Lt. Col. Omri Burberg, the battalion commander suspected of giving an utterly illegal order to shoot a bound Palestinian, is wandering free and being considered for a senior training post in the Israel Defense Forces. Meanwhile, Jamal Amira, the father of Salam, the amateur camera operator who filmed the shooting, spent 26 days in an Israeli jail, until a military judge was so kind as to release him on bail last week.

"Although the claim that the IDF sought revenge is weak," wrote Lt. Col. Yoram Haniel, the military judge, "one cannot overlook the fact that out of all the protestors, only the complainant was arrested."

Indeed, it can't be overlooked. Jamal Amira was arrested just after after B'Tselem released the video, filmed by his daughter, of the horrible shooting of the bound Palestinian man. He says that when the Border Police officers arrested him, they called out to one another, "We caught Salam's father." Amira, 53, a father of nine, has many Israeli friends, including a senior IDF reserves officer. Amir was thrown into Ofer Prison in what can only be interpreted as an act of revenge by those who presented themselves as "friends of Omri."
