JEWISH TERRORIST JACK TEITEL CONDEMNED – 9 Apr 2013

Today in the Jerusalem District Court, the three judges in the case of “Jewish terrorist”, Jack Teitel, found him completely responsible for his “cold-blooded” acts of murder and of attempted murder.  In the courtroom, when asked by reporters whether he had any regrets for what he had done, he said the he “has no regret nor is he sorry for what he did”, and that he would do it again if he had to.  Teitel received two consecutive life sentences for the two murders he committed, plus 30 more years in jail for the other attempts he carried out.  In addition, he was ordered to pay a total of 680,000 ILS ($190,000) to the various victims of his crimes.

The judges, in their sentencing, said that despite all the religious claims of the murderer, he had violated the values of the people and nation, and the commandment which states, “You shall not murder”.

The  case was particularly of interest to the Messianic/Christian community in Israel, because one of the victims was Ami Ortiz, the teenaged (at that time in March, 2008, during Purim) son of David and Leah.  He opened a supposed Purim gift box left at the front door of their apartment, and the bomb blast severely wounded and damaged Ami and the home.  Till today, Ami suffers from shrapnel still in his body, loss of hearing, pains, loss of three toes.  Yet with all that, thanks to God, he has recovered wonderfully in body and soul.

None of the Ortiz family expresses any hatred toward Teitel, yet were determined to see that justice was done to such a one that has expressed no remorse and showed no mercy.

Israeli law does not recognize Jewish terror against Israelis or other Jews, which means that the Ortiz family has received no compensation from the government as victims of a terrorist act; whereas the Arab Palestinians who were his victims have received compensation.  The Ortizes and their lawyers hope that this case will spur the government to modify the law to recognize that even Jewish people can be victims of other Jews simply for ideological reasons.

Here is the translation of an exerpt of the judges’ opening remarks in the courtroom, which form the conclusion of their transcript, before declaring th sentence on Teitel:

“Before the end (when the sentencing will take place) we want to repeat and emphasize: it was proven before us that feelings of hatred and frustration were used by the defendant while committing criminal acts, while sacred values became dust at his feet. We know that life is sacred and to be respected in every way, but we did not find a sign or memory of that knowledge in the possession of the defendant.  Our scriptures command us: “Thou shalt not murder”, but the defendant stopped up his ears and eyes, and murdered and attempted to murder in cold blood. Every crime that he committed, was saturated with the contamination of the hatred of his mind and heart….

His actions become more evident and obvious, the murders were committed only because of the Arab origins of his victims, who were unarmed, without any threat of visible weapons or intimidation on their part towards him. The rest of the offenses the defendant committed were ideologically motivated. This is not a one case incident or a mistake, what we have before us is – a phenomenon.

The democratic System of government is honorable and worthy, when it is established on an interaction between the different segments of the nations that dwell in the country, Jews and Arabs as one, and the state institutions, which should be accompanied by a sense of trust and general confidence that prevails for every citizen, regardless of origin, whose actions are not led by arbitrariness of the heart but by appropriate values which we all want to depend on.

The State of Israel is blessed in this regard with governmental institutions that operate according to law, in a legal constitutional environment where sacred values are used as candles for its feet and human dignity and freedom are the leading values. But this matter in question invaded to the depths of our consciousness – and indeed violated one of the basic premises which guides us on a daily basis. The ruling in this case leaves no room for doubt: the murders, the attempted murders and other crimes committed by the defendant were directed at the heart of this country’s values which were stated beforehand, but it should be emphasized – that these malicious intentions cannot be tolerated by a society that fights against those who would try to destroy it.

This is true all year round, but even more so during these days between Memorial Day, Holocaust Memorial Day, and Independence Day.”

JEWISH TERRORIST, JACK TEITEL, CONVICTED – 16 Jan 2013

For those of you who have been on my (Donna Diorio) mailing list for a while, you know how we have followed the case of the religious Jewish terrorist who tried to murder a Messianic family in Ariel by setting a Purim basket loaded with a bomb.  David and Leah Ortiz’ then 15-year old youngest son was blown to pieces but through the grace of a miracle of God lived.  Jack Teitel has finally been convicted in Jerusalem District court. This case has been dragging on for years and all sorts of games have been played – including a prosecution deal that excluded the charges against Jack Teitel for setting the bomb that blew up in the hands of a 15-year old Messianic teenager. Also years of games about Teitel being mentally ill instead of this being the religious hate crime that it was. But Teitel now stands guilty as charged in two murders and two attempted murders and was found mentally sound. This is such powerful news!  Praise God for justice for Ami and the other victims of Teitel.  It has not looked like it would end in justice, and especially not justice for Messianic Ami, but God has had His way in this and all we can say is Thank You, thank You, thank You!

‘Jewish terrorist’ Jack Teitel convicted

Jerusalem District Court finds radical rightist guilty of two counts of murder, two counts of attempted murder; rules he was sane at time of the murders

http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-4333417,00.html Yaakov “Jack” Teitel, nicknamed “The Jewish Terrorist,” was convicted Wednesday of the murder to two Palestinians and the      attempted murder of two others.

The conviction, rendered by the Jerusalem District Court, stated that Teitel was in full control of his faculties at the time of the murders, thus debunking the defense’s repeated claims that he was legally insane and therefore cannot be held responsible of his action.

Teitel was arrested in 2009 and was held without bail. The indictment against him consisted of 10 counts, including premeditated murder, attempted murder, the illegal possession of firearms, arms manufacturing and incitement.

In May 2012, after three years of consistent denials, Teitel confessed to his crimes.

During the trial it was also revealed that the police had information which directly pointed at Teitel as the prime suspect in a series of crimes, but he had somehow managed to slip through their fingers.

KAY WILSON, KRISTINE LUKEN, AND AMI ORTIZ – 27 Jan 2011

Praise the Lord that the news black-out on the arrest of suspects involved in the murder of Kristine Luken and the severe wounding of Kay Wilson has been lifted with good news!  Thanks to Kay’s lucidity and excellent descriptions of the two men directly involved in their case, the police have arrested a gang of Palestinians who had decided to kill Jews and Israelis, especially since the killing of a chief Hamas operative in Kuwait last year.  Kay is being described as a “hero”, and as someone who knew how to act in such a grave situation.

Please also remember the Ortiz family, whose son Ami was very seriously injured in 2008 from a bomb attack against the family.  Next week on Feb 3, the court is once again scheduled to convene to determine if the confessed “Jewish terrorist” is mentally fit to stand trial.  Here is the last update from the Ortizes:  http://www.amiortiz.com/leahsupdates.cfm

God bless you all for standing with us in your love for Jesus/Yeshua.
