This program shows how the Israeli Intelligence tries to force people, through torture and intimidation, into collaboration with the purpose of targeting Palestinian officials.

Narration:

The word collaborator is circulated among people in many collaborations especially in banking dealings. It is a word that most people in Palestinian prefer not to use, due to it being a word associated with turning a Palestinian from the nationalist class to the Israeli Occupation class.

Fadel Abu –Heen:

In Palestinian Culture when you call someone a collaborator it means that no longer belong to the that society that the energy directed against society ,they are the seeing eyes of the occupiers they gather information and relay them to the occupiers , what they do hurt society ?consequences of their actions impact everyone, the case in point is the many assassinations care by the agencies of occupations

Narration:

Since its creation the Israeli occupation has adapted the policy of assassinations, to eliminate its political, resistance, and intellectual opponents. But their greater focus was on the resistance and its leadership, e.g. Majed Al-Hrazeen leader of Saraya Alquds was one of the most important wanted men to the Israeli Occupation.

Wife of the Martyer Majed Alharazeen:

His whole life was running and running, We only saw him every 10 – 20 days, We used to comfort each other over the phone or mobile phones, and he used to come over at night, he never used the same method of coming over again, he used to disguise himself and alter personalities when he comes over, for example he once wore Abaia and another time a Jalabia, and sometimes he would wear glasses to alter his personality a little.

Narration:

Despite the safety precautions that Palestinian factions take into consideration, they or some of them do not deny a person to become a member of them for the purpose of resistance, in reality that person can be working for the Israeli Occupation Intelligence Networks

Resistor:

The Palestinian movements and political factions are from this nation, and chose their members from this nation, and certainly some members may fall into collaboration and spying before or after becoming a member of movement or political part.

Narration:

The recruitment processes in the Israeli Intelligence Services differs from person to person. Some are recruited by the Network Spider Web.

Collaborator S.A:

I got to know an Arabic man in 2005, and he used the neck name Lover of Palestine, of course I got to know him over the internet, and he said that he is a Moslem and also religiously committed. And that he wishes to become one of the Mujahideen who fight for the sake of God in Palestine, he also told me that he want to die on Palestinian soil

Narration:

The collaborator S.A or Sabaa Alil which is the neck name he uses to communicate with his chat friend Palestine Lover, believes that this friend is able to change his life by getting him out of the hardships that he lives through in Palestine.

Fadel Abu –Heen:

There are those desires greater than anything and sought their desire to collaborate with occupiers and face the consequences .

Collaborator S.A:

I have just finished high school and I liked to go study overseas, it was difficult for me to leave, so I offered him to come and study in his country, he welcomed the idea and offer me help do it.

Narration:

S.A, continued to communicate with Palestine Lover through the network spider web, until Saba Alil arrange to meet with his brother who is wanted for the Israeli occupation, to speak with Palestine Lover.

Collaborator S.A:

I told the Lover of Palestine that my brother has been killed by the occupiers airplane raids, and of course he offered his condolences, and I also have already applied for a visa, he then told me that the visa has been issued and in on week I can go there to catch up with the university, in order to get out I have to go to Rafah Crossing. In 2005 the Israeli still occupying Gaza and in control of the Rafah crossing, on the border a man from intelligence service stopped me for some questions I entered the room and sat with the officer, when we started talking he called me by my name Sabaa Alyl. Honestly I was surprised, I wondered how he know my name.

Fadel Abu –Heen:

It is possible for a any human being to fall into collaboration through the Internet. When you are on the net , you cannot be certain who is exactly on the other end, is it a man or a woman or mossad or a nationalist? is he human like this or that? and you are dealing with a an unknown world

Narration:

The Israeli officer succeeded in continuing communication with Saba Alil under the neck name Palestine Lover, while he is in comfort sipping coffee with his cigarette in absolute confidence. And Saba Alil still believed that this officer is his savior from his difficult living circumstances, not knowing that that this man is planning for him a dilemma that cannot be forgiven.

Collaborator S.A:

Suddenly he surprised me with a second surprise. He asks me if I remember while chatting and I told you that I am a Lover of Palestine, do you know how I knew that you brother was on his way home and because you told me he sent you a message via mobile phone, then you asked me to closed the chat because there has been an explosion, I told him yes, then he told me he had gave the signal that my brother is on his way to you and the Apache attack planes bombed him in accordance with your signal, you killed your brother! I was shocked, then he repeatedly told me do you want to work for us or I will expose you?. Of course my answer was yes , I decided work with them so that I won't be exposed specially for the sake of my family because I was responsible for my brother death

Narration:

One of the methods that the Israeli Intelligence officers rely upon to recruit collaborators, are the interrogations rooms inside detention centers which has been built specifically to kidnap thousands of Palestinians since tens of years to expose them to their methods of intimidation and luring to fall into joining spying for the occupation.

Freed Prisoner:

First: Freedom, we will free you and send you home. Second: sexual luring, Third: We will bring in your mother or sister and arrest them . They keep trying to weak you and break you down because they know the value of honor to Palestinians and to their struggle.

Narration:

For those who do not fall into pray, the Israeli officers turn to the system of Shabak or Alshabas in the services circle in the Israeli prisons that uses other techniques far from the interrogation rooms.

Salman Jadalah:

My arrest happened on 30-12-1984, I was in interrogations for 115 days, they thought I was hiding something, their torture methods were ugly, after 70 days they put me in the small pod 20 with another 2 young men, one was 16 and the other a year older .The older one began to talk about his situation and what has bad happened to him during interrogations, so I asked him to keep his mouth shut and not talk about that subject. The younger guy did a not so nice move, it involved positioning his body in not so fitting position, I think he did it to lure me I asked him to turn me and looked at me in the face, later when I was transferred to a normal prison I found out he was undercover agent prison to Gaza Palestinian inmate .

Narration:

Those who do not respond to such methods inside the Israeli detention centers, are moved to the rooms of shame, which accommodates collaborators that have been exposed among prisoners in the jail and escaped to those rooms which are used to lure and pressure new detainees to confess .

Freed Prisoner:

When I got arrested they toke me to this room with another 4 people in it. i won’t mention their name In respect . One of them said to me write about how I have been arrested, so I wrote for them that I was walking in such street and was working with two other guys who walk to go home ,but I wanted to go by car, I had nothing with me but my jacket which I was wearing. Then they asked me to write that I was a fighter but I said I wasn’t a fighter. I am just a worker, they attacked me and said write that you are worker carrying explosives, I told them I was not carrying explosives nor anything else, and of course the prison guard was spying through the door, when he heard screaming and shouting he opened the door and call out the collaborator.

Narration:

When one of the collaborators is exposed inside one of the detention facilities, the factions security department there takes responsibility over investigating them, that happens after suspicions have hovered around the suspect. And after his confession he writes it by his own hand writing, and then his punishment is determined in accordance with the type of fractions and crimes he committed.

Freed Prisoner:

The security services of Palestinian factions, collects information and monitors all those who are in prison, and when they get repeated information about a young person, the factions leadership try to analyze the information well so that they do not mistakenly accuse a young man of wrong doings, now after they decide to investigate a young man, they transferred him to special room and start questioning .

Narration:

What forms or is considered the most dangerous type of collaboration for the Israeli occupation is the one involving Mobile phones, it is quite possible for the Israeli occupation to monitor any mobile phone with the technologies they possesses.

Eehab Al-ghaseen:

Certainly, many of the investigations confirm that the method that has been used in assassinating or targeting those who are wanted by the Zionist occupation has been the mobile phone due its easiness. Often we found through investigations that the targeted person was carrying his phone in his pants pockets, and that the rocket came directly to that mobile phone and cut off the leg of the assassination target.

Narrations:

Mobile phones are also used by the Israeli Intelligence to attract and recruit new collaborators through communicating with them and offering them to become collaborators inside Palestinian lands, in which the Israeli Intelligence officers cannot be in to make direct contact.

Resistorp:

A collaborator was arrested while commutating directly with Israeli officer in southern Gaza, and in Rafah border .

Collaborator S.A:

I was a lieutenant with the General Palestinian Intelligence. I became joined in 01-07-2007 through the Israeli intelligence officer named Sami, he called me in the beginning of July 4-5 days after the coup and asked me for assistance (he would help me and I would help him), I did not agree in the beginning, but only on July 1st I agreed so he asked me to buy sim card orange I told him I have one then they gave me a code to use that when we communicated our code names would be named Yousef and for him Flowers.

Narration:

The Saraya alquds security department has succeeded in collecting confessions through interrogations of the collaborator Sad.Aen about the crimes he committed against resistors and his transfer of information about locations that have been bombed by Israeli Army warplanes.

Collaborator S.A:

The intelligence officer requested information about Osama Al-Hobi Abu-Qosai, so I provided the intelligence officer of information about a person named Awath Alqiq (RIP), he was the important person of the Islamic Jihad and he was murdered by Osama Al-Hobi , and the Bader Mosque that was bombed, I provided information to the officer that in the mosque under the concrete was a storage for weapons, after less than an hour the mosque was bombed and I told them the attack was successful and then the mosque had been destroyed and people killed .

Narration:

After the interrogation of the collaborator that was caught by the security of the Islamic Jihad, and we completed recording his confessions and the criminal operations he committed, then we surrendered him to the specialized authorities.

Resistor:

When the Islamic Jihad Movement arrests a collaborator they start interrogations while alerting our brothers and fighters about the enemy's methods and when we finish everything such as recording and videotaping we turn over the collaborator to the government so that they can deal with him in an official way according to Palestinian law.

Ihab Al-ghaseen:

Later we send them to judgment, then they are sentenced, some get long sentences and others get the death penalty.

Narration:

The war during 2008 – 2009 against Gaza has proved the failures of the Israeli occupation in achieving their goals of destroying the resistance and some of the notable leadership figures, in that there is clear evidence that the Israeli occupation was incapable of recruiting enough collaborators in Gaza or even keeping already recruited ones.

Ihab Al-ghaseen:

I mean even if we talk about events in Alforqan war such as the assassination of Saaeed Seiam or Dr. Nazar Reyan, such operations were not intelligence based and did not need intelligence skills, but in regards to the other leaders of the factions it was not possible to locate them, nor to know their where about because there weren't any collaborators serving them on that side and especially because they are resistance factions which have eliminated known collaborators at the beginning of the war.

Natrration:

And in a never done before step, the interior ministry in Gaza, started in the middle of 2010 opening the forgiveness doors to anyone who has a relation with Israeli Occupation Intelligence.

Sad-Aen:

I confessed with my full well, and told them I am a human being that I want to return to God and that I had nothing left in this world, my actions have destroyed my reputation and that of my children, family .I have more damaged than necessary and collaborated in issues that lead to death . Why? Why would you give some one's phone to someone or why would you stop him it simply means you are a killer .

Ihab Al-ghaseen:

There are dangerous collaborators who lived and worked with the occupation for many years, and felt safe, but they have returned to the nationalism with this campaign. There are matters that I can comment on now but not before, that there are collaborators from the lands of 1948 who returned to Gaza and surrendered and asked to become nationalist. With all clarity we have declared that any collaborator that surrenders and returns to nationalism, they will be able to continue on with their social lives, and sometimes we use those individuals to send messages to the Zionist occupation declaring that they have not returned to the nationalism. There are many successes in doing that.we did not find him to investigations but I am not going to say how he was let back in whatever he was forgiven or arrested because that won’t help anything about the occupation .

Narration:

One of the most important discoveries during the campaign against collaborating with the occupation, are assassination missions by collaborators against leaders of factions, notably the 2007 assassination of the leader of Saray Alquds, the armed wing of the Islamic Jihad in Palestine.

Wife of Majed Alharazeen :

Someone was observing him from the point he left the house until he reached the square and another would observe him from there, and he was in a meeting in a house west in Al-naser and when he left that house the Jews bombed it.

Narration:

The collaborator in the Palestinian society represents only himself. But he leaves behind families that lost their loved ones, and other families that still suffer great dilemmas inflected upon them as a consequence of the collaboration of one of them with the Israeli Occupation.
