Finances and Property were Seized in a Tulkarm Operation Overnight (source: IDF)

IDF Seized Large Sums of Terror Linked Finances and Property

The IDF Spokesperson announced in a report that large sums of terror linked finances and property were seized in overnight Tulkarm Operation, 15 Nov 2010.

Last night, in a joint IDF-ISA operation in Tulkarm, security forces confiscated the money and possessions of a senior Hamas operative that was recently convicted of transferring Hamas finances into the Judea and Samaria region.

The operative, Ali Dadu from Tulkarm, is a senior Hamas operative and one of the founders of the Hamas network in the area of Tulkarm. Dadu was arrested by security forces on June 27th, 2010 on suspicions of involvement in transferring hundreds of thousands of dollars in terror finances from abroad to the Judea and Samaria region.

During his investigation, Dadu admitted to having received $620,000 from Hamas, which were smuggled from Israel into the Judea and Samaria region in various ways.

In addition, Ali Dadu’s son, Diaa Dadu, was also arrested. During his investigation, Diaa confirmed that the source of the money is Hamas. He estimated the value of the money his father received to be approximately $900,000.

On August 26th, 2010, Ali Dadu was convicted of transferring money into the Judea and Samaria region and transferring enemy finances into the region. The military court in Samaria imposed a nine month prison sentence, a fine of 15,000 NIS, and 12 months of probation.

This operation should serve as a message to Hamas operatives and affiliates that involvement in the transfer of finances from terror organizations may jeopardize their property.

The confiscation follows Dadu’s conviction and is in accordance with Order 120/84 of the Security Regulations as well as Supreme Court rulings, allowing the confiscation of equal sums of money from the convicted persons’ private property. In accordance with this regulation GOC Central Command, Maj. Gen. Avi Mizrahi ordered the confiscation of the money.

The Hamas terror organization is constantly acting to rebuild its terror network in the Judea and Samaria region. These attempts are possible with money coming from the Gaza Strip, Syria, Hezbollah, and Iran.

The operation was carried out by forces from the IDF, the ISA, the Israel Police, as well as an assessor.

  4. Israeli law is a mixed legal system reflecting the diverse history of the territory of the State of Israel throughout the last hundred years (which was at various times prior to independence under Ottoman, then British sovereignty), as well as the legal systems of its major religious communities. The Israeli legal system is based in common law, which also incorporates facets of civil law. Like the United Kingdom, Israel does not have a formal Constitution, despite the assertion in the Israeli Declaration of Independence that one would be written. Statutes enacted by the Knesset, particularly the Basic Laws of Israel, provide a framework which is enriched by political precedent and jurisprudence. Foreign and historical influences on modern-day Israeli law are varied and include the Mecelle (the civil code of the Ottoman Empire) and German civil law, religious law (Jewish Halakha and Muslim Sharia; mostly pertaining in the area of family law), and British common law. The Israeli courts have been influenced in recent years by American Law and Canadian Law and to a lesser extent by Continental Law (mostly from Germany). (Law of Israel).

    Human Rights and the Rule of Law in Israel

    Since the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948, the protection of human rights has fallen to the judiciary, for Israel has no formal constitution or Bill of Rights. In 1948 it was decided to adopt a written constitution, and a Constituent Assembly was elected to implement this decision. However, internal political problems soon led to a decision to postpone the immediate adoption of a constitution. Instead, the constitution would be prepared by the Knesset, Israels parliament, chapter by chapter in a series of “Basic Laws” which would eventually be brought together to form the constitution. Thus the Basic Laws, taken together, comprise a “constitution-in-the-making.” At present, the drafts of three additional basic laws are being circulated prior to their submission to the Ministerial Committee on Legislation: Draft Basic Law: Due Process Rights; Draft Basic Law: Social Rights; and Draft Basic Law: Freedom of Expression and Association.

    Most chapters of Israel’s prospective constitution have already been written and enacted as Basic Laws. They outline the basic features of government: the President, the Knesset (Israel’s legislature), the Government, the Judicature, the Israel Defense Forces, and the State Comptroller. In 1992, two new Basic Laws were added: Freedom of Occupation; and Human Dignity and Liberty. These were the first Basic Laws which explicitly protected human rights.

    The Supreme Court as Protector of Civil Liberties and the Rule of Law

    In the absence of a Bill of Rights, the Supreme Court has made a large contribution to the protection of civil liberties and the rule of law. It developed a principle according to which statutes should be interpreted in a manner which presumes that the legislature has, generally speaking, no intention to curtail liberties or to empower other public authorities to do so. In practice this is a very strong presumption which enables the court to modify the ordinary meaning of statutory provisions and to make them consistent with the concept of civil liberties.

    In the absence of a written constitution, and even in the face of legislation seemingly hostile to civil liberties, largely inherited from the former British mandatory government, the Supreme Court has been able in numerous cases to develop a body of case law protecting civil liberties almost as if a Bill of Rights existed. The court’s decisions have protected, among other liberties, freedom of speech, freedom of occupation, and equality as fundamental values of the Israeli legal system. As a result, in practice Israelis largely enjoy the same civil liberties as citizens in other Western democracies.
