Electronic Intifada Publishes Lie-Riddled Piece by Terrorist About to be Deported

Ali “Abumination” Abunimah’s Electronic Intischmatte has published a “sob story” written by Salah Hammouri, a palestinian Arab “human rights lawyer” who claims Israel wants to unjustly deport him from Jerusalem.

Buried in the story is this

In 2005, I was imprisoned for allegedly planning an attack against Ovadia Yosef, the late spiritual godfather and founder of the ultra-Orthodox Shas party.

I denied the accusations against me and served most of a seven-year sentence. I was released in 2011 as part of a prisoner exchange deal.

Hammouri was imprisoned for planning to assassinate Rav Ovadia Yosef, and after his release as part of the Gilad Shalit prisoner exchange deal, seems to have had no problem admitting to it

A Palestinian jailed by Israel for plotting to kill one of Israel’s most influential rabbis said after his release on Sunday that he had no regrets about the path he had chosen.

Hamouri, of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), was jailed along with two accomplices in 2005 for seeking to kill former chief Sephardi rabbi Ovadia Yosef, now 91.
“This man is and will remain a symbol of racism and fanaticism in Israel,” Hamouri said in an interview with Reuters.

Asked about his imprisonment, Hamouri, whose French mother had appealed to France to help win her son’s release, said separation from friends and family had been difficult, but added: “I am certain of the path and the choices that I have chosen.”

I guess he realizes Electronic Intischmatte readers won’t bother verifying his claims and/or don’t care anyway.

What he also doesn’t say is why he is being deported, which is “in view of his continued and active membership in the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP).”

Before I read the reason, I already worked out why – from this at the bottom of the Electronic Intischmatte article:

Salah Hammouri is a lawyer with the human rights group Addameer and is currently enrolled in a human rights master’s degree program at Al-Quds University

I have exposed Addameer before as having been created and run by members of the PFLP. So there’s little doubt in my mind Israel is absolutely justified in showing him the door.

Just like there’s little doubt in my mind his wife would win a game of one-on-one basketball with him
