Soldier arrested in Jewish terror case
By David Ratner, Haaretz Correspondent

Police and the Shin Bet security service arrested IDF soldier Yevgeny Grossman overnight Friday on suspicion of involvement in a Jewish terror case. His remand was extended by five days Friday.

Grossman, a 22-year-old Ashdod resident, denied being involved in bombing Israeli-Arab targets in Haifa. When asked if he hates Arabs, he told the Haifa Magistrate's Court, "I can tell you one thing: Everyone who is not linked to terror attacks has the same rights as we do."

Haifa resident Eliran Golan, also 22, is suspected of placing explosivs near Arab targets in the northern coastal city, after he prepared explosive devices and placed them in various locations in Haifa, including a mosque.

Police suspect Grossman was involved in placing some of the explosives in Haifa and knew about at least some of the ones Golan is suspected of having placed. But Grossman said he didn't know anything about the plans and that he only met Golan once, during a course for security guards, Israel Radio reported.

Police have also arrested Eliran's father, a civilian employed by the Israel Defense Forces, suspecting that he was aware of his son's activities but did not report him to the authorities. Eliran Golan lives with his father, Meir Golan, whose remand was extended by two days Friday.

Golan's brother was also detained by police for questioning, after he pointed a plastic gun at Army Radio and Israel Radio reporters who sought the family's reaction to the charges, Army Radio reported early Friday.

Golan admitted to preparing bombs and planting them near Arab targets, and said that he did so for ideological reasons. Golan, who said he regarded himself as a far-right activist, had been released from the Israel Defense Forces for psychological reasons.

Details of the affair, which were released for publication late Thursday afternoon, were disclosed at a press conference held by Northern District police commander Major General Yaakov Borovsky.

Golan's terror-related activity included the planting of nine explosive devices in Haifa between 2001-2004, including one at a mosque in the Halisa neighborhood in August 2001, which lightly wounded one woman.

Golan also placed a bomb under the car of MK Issam Makhoul (Hadash) while it was parked near his house three months ago. The bomb detonated when Makhoul's wife started the car, but she was unhurt.

Golan planted additional bombs under the cars and adjacent to the homes of Arab residents of Haifa. He also allegedly planted explosives near the homes of Jews who had befriended Arabs, including Doron's former employer at a delivery service, Lior Flick.

Information uncovered during the course of the police interrogation of Golan indicated he planned to carry out terror attacks against MK Mohammed Barakeh (Hadash), MK Ahmed Tibi (Hadash), and MK Azmi Bishara (Balad-National Democratic Alliance).

On Wednesday, police presented to the media two suitcases filled with explosives and weapons, allegedly prepared by Eliran Golan. Among the explosives were 16 large bombs ready for use, as well as 18 smaller bombs. According to suspicion, Golan also prepared six improvised nail guns, capable of killing human beings.

An additional suitcase contained dozens of bullets, matchboxes, and accessories for preparing improvised bombs.

On Wednesday, the remands of both Meir and Eliran Golan were extended by six days.

Woman wounded in mosque bombing not recognized as terror victim
Six months ago, Haaretz reported the woman who was wounded at the Haifa mosque bombing, Jamila Agbariyah, had not been recognized by the National Insurance Institute as a terror victim.

The NII stated that even if police prove the attack was an act of terror, she would not be eligible for compensation, because the law does not recognize attacks carried out by Jews as hostile terrorist activity.
