I’m confused

During the height of the Hamas terror cells debate, the Islamists accused the government of fabricating the whole case. The government rounded up a number of suspects and televised the confessions of three of them.

Later, the IAF legal committee (including deputy Zuhair Abu Ragheb) announced that they would represent the accused, and specifically disavowed the three who confessed on television. The IAF said at the time that the three were not members of the Islamist movement, and that they cooperated with the government to fabricate this case.

Last month, on order from the king, the detainees were released, with the exception of the three who testified on TV. Their case was sent to court and they are now on trial.

Now, the funny part is that IAF deputy Abu Ragheb has agreed to defend two of these suspects. Did he forget that the IAF legal committee decided NOT to defend them, because they were tools of the government?

I’m so confused.

ah Daniel-san...the IAF disavowed them at first because they thought they could be innocent. But now they know they're innocent.

An alternative explination is that they are now sure that they tried to harm the country.

Shimon: I don't get what "a new approach" has to do with the duplicity and disloyalty of the Islamists.

I am a patriot, but I am not blind.

Too bad the IAF don't read your posts. I would really like to get an explanation.

First of all the IAF still beleive that the goverment fabricated the story. What happened is that they beleived at the beginning that the people confessing are agents and lying. But later it turned out that they were forced to confess thats why they have defended them again. As for the issue if u beleive it was a real plot not a fabricated one you are ignorant because on of the aspects of the case, was that the "Hamas agents" wanted to kill a "jew" who has a farm they gave the name, he had a press meeting and the man turned out to be Christian Palestinian activist who was with the PLO. The convicted might have tried to do something i dont know only secutriy reports can say, but the part about the involvment of Hamas politicaly is a lie. Hamas have long said that their area of operations is inside Palestine it is in their doctrine. If you remember the Palestinian Foreign minister was supposed to visit Jordan at that time so they needed an exuse not to see him an viola!!! You have Hamas trying to threaten Jordan security.

The Islamists said that these individuals were drunkards affiliated with Fateh. Why do they want to defend them?
