Former Shin Bet Chief Outraged Over Nazi Photoshop Image of Finance Minister
Times of Israel – Former Shin Bet chief Ami Ayalon expressed outrage Tuesday at the circulation of an image on Facebook of Finance Minister Yair Lapid in Nazi uniform. Ayalon called on authorities to immediately deal with the situation, which, he asserted, may be classified as incitement.
“If I learned something during my service in the Shin Bet, it is that words kill,” Ayalon said at a meeting of the National Security Studies Center at Haifa University. “We know today that in the eyes of thousands of people, using a swastika on public figures means permission to murder,” he said.
