Opening Remarks
Many lawyers have asked Adalah whether Justice Cheshin’s statement in the family unification case that over 26 residents of the Occupied Territories from the thousands who have received status in Israel via family unification were involved in what he termed “terrorism against citizens of the State of Israel,” is correct. The Attorney General (AG) claimed in his written submission to the Supreme Court that “26 individuals have been investigated over terrorist activities. ” [Emphasis added] Adalah demanded that the AG inform the Court of these investigations and their results. The AG provided no response to the Court, nor a single document to verify this statement. He submitted no indictments or reports to corroborate that they had even been arrested. The only document submitted by the AG examines the personality traits of suicide bombers. No mention is made family unification applicants; in fact, the document states that the vast majority of suicide bombers are unmarried. With no evidence to substantiate his claims, Justice Cheshin wrote a decision using inflammatory, provocative and extremist rhetoric, which wholly relies on the contention that every Palestinian is a potential terrorist or supporter of terrorism and must be prevented from entering Israel. How, we ask, would the Israeli government react if a Palestinian official stated that all Israelis are potential terrorists or supporters of state terrorism?
