Niso Shaham, the creepy police commander who used obscenities against "settlers" in Gush Katif when throwing them out, has been fired from the job he didn't deserve
for sexual harassment:
The controversial former Jerusalem District police chief Niso Shaham was officially relieved of his commission as a police officer Monday. Public Security Minister Yitzchak Aharonovich fired Shaham Monday, after the former chief was accused of various financial and sexual improprieties.
The recommendation to fire Shaham was made by National Police chief Yohanan Danino. The firing came despite an announcement last week by Shaham that he was planning to leave the police. The announcement came days after the police internal affairs unit filed an indictment against Shaham for fraud, service in bad faith, and sexual harassment involving several women.
Sources in the police department said that the decision to fire Shaham despite his decision to resign was made in order to make an example of him to fellow officers.
According to the indictment, Shaham, as a senior officer, on a regular basis befriended young female officers who were new to the department, and forced them to engage in a series of trysts with him. Many of the officers were far younger than him. Besides the criminal charges, Shaham was charged with violating numerous internal police rules about proper conduct in relating to other officers. As a result he is likely to lose his pension benefits.
Shaham will be best – or worst – remembered for his role in the 2005 "Disengagement", when he enthusiastically egged on officers to treat the Jews being evicted from their homes in Gush Katif with as much insensitivity, if not violence, as possible.
Shaham, then Southern District Police Commander, became infamous when a Channel 10 cameraman caught him cursing – nearly foaming at the mouth, actually – during the police evacuation of protesters from Kfar Maimon, where thousands had massed in the days leading up to the disengagement to protest the removal of Gush Katif Jews from their homes by the Sharon government.
He should be absolutely ashamed of himself for setting such a repellent example for a human being, and is fully deserving of the pariah status he'll hopefully get.
