One is hard pressed to find a reasonable explanation, except for serious fraud, for conduct of three officers of the Central Election Committee, who stated that the Shin-Bet examined and certified the Committee's IT systems. The Shin-Bet response, which adamantly denied such claims, also implicates a series of Supreme Court justices, who chaired the Committee...

OccupyTLV, February 15 -- response letter was received by email from the Prime Minister's office, pertaining to inquiry with Shin-Bet Head Nadav Argaman. [1] The inquiry asked that the Shin-Bet Head to confirm or refute a FOIA response by the General Election Committee, which stated that the Shin-Bet's Re'em (Data Security Authority) examined and certified the Committee's IT systems (Figure 3).

Figure 3: -- FOIA response by the Central Election Committee says, "The Central Election Committee operates by consultation with the National Data Security Authority [Shin-Bet/Re'em -- jz], and acts pursuant to its guidance. The system was examined and certified by the Authority."


The Shin-Bet refutes the Central Election Committee's statement that Shin-Bet examined and certified the Committee's systems

The response letter (Figure 4), received from the Prime Minister's office on behalf of the Shin-Bet, adamantly refutes the Committees statement.

The letter says:

Toward the 2015 election, the Shin-Bet consented to an inquiry by the Central Election Committee and assisted the Committee with general consulting relative to security of its IT systems.

The Shin-Bet is neither the Committee's guiding authority, and therefore nor its systems certifying authority.
