Sunday July 11 2010 – The Egyptian daily newspapers reported on Sunday 11 July 2010 that Carmen Weinstein, the head of jewish community in Egypt was sentenced to three years in jail after she was convicted of defrauding Mr. Nabil Badi, an Egyptian businessman, of three million Egyptian pounds (around 520.000 US dollars).
The circumstances of the Weinstein case are connected to the fraudulent sale of a piece of real estate of the jewish community to the Egyptian businessman, Mr. Nabil Badi. Weinstein received the price of the jewish property of 3 million pounds, after what she refused to hand it over to the new owner. Mr. Badi, the new owner of the estate, then proceeded to file a criminal complaint against Weinstein, in which he accused her of a fraudulent sale and stealing his money.
Mr. Badi’s lawyer told the reporters that Weinstein had convinced Mr. Badi that she legally owned the property due to her being the President of the jewish community in Egypt. Mr. Badi discovered later that Weinstein had defrauded him.
Yitzhak Levanon (Itzik Levanon), the son of Shula Cohen, and brother of a war criminal David Kishik, the current Israeli ambassador in Cairo, became very angry with the Egyptian justice after Carmen Weinstein was sentenced to three years jail. He accused the Egyptian government of not protecting the jewish community in Egypt and asked the government to fulfill their duty and to protect jews.
Levanon sent a note protesting the sentence to the Egyptian Foreign Ministry, accusing the judiciary of “oppression and cruelty”. He said that the Egyptian judiciary reflected a bias against Weinstein because of her religion. The memorandum of the Israeli ambassador was ignored by the Egyptian Foreign Ministry because it contained a clear threat to the Egyptian government and flagrant interference in the internal affairs of the Egyptian justice.
The zionist “State of Israel” through their envoy condemned the handling of the Weinstein case by the Egyptian judiciary. The IDF radio quoted an earlier message of Levanon to the Israeli Foreign Ministry, in which he whined about receiving bad treatment in Egypt and said that the treatment of Egypt “reached a level that is hard to describe”. He suggested that “the treatment should be in reciprocity”.
Levanon wrote in his earlier message that the Egyptians “restrict our steps in a way which we cannot be describe and characterized”, and also “it is difficult to fix interviews with personalities in Egypt, and more than this the Egyptians are trying to dictate to us what to do and who we can meet. We were asked not to attend the ceremony at the Egyptian Foreign Ministry which was held by the Egyptians to express their solidarity with the African continent”. He added that “if the Egyptians want to deal with us like this, then we should deal with them in the same way because if we ignore their treatment then this will not help”.
Obviously Mr. Levanon sees it fit to insist on the “right” of a jew to steal and defraud somebody who is not jewish, and even that the government of Egypt must protect a jew defrauding an Egyptian, what would put jews above the law in Egypt, as is already the case in many other parts of the world. About the “inability to fix interviews”, it may be related to the incompetence and decided lack of popularity of Shula’s son. In such cases, whining is always an effective albeit unconvincing last refuge. The intervention of an embassy in court cases is always a delicate matter, as the borders between legitimate intervention and intermission in the internal issues of another country can shift easily. The shameless intervention if the israeli ambassador in this case is clear, and it should give everybody pause to question the fraudulent claim of the European jewry to Palestine.
