Left-Wing Israeli Activists Attend Celebration Calling for Death of Jews
JNS.org – Israeli left-wing activists from the Yesh Din organization celebrated with Arabs at the Jewish community of Homesh in Samaria, which was transferred from Jewish hands by the Israeli government in the wake of a Yesh Din lawsuit. During the celebration, a banner was waived depicting a religious Jewish man with a spear through his mouth. Other Jewish symbols in the area were replaced with PLO flags.
Acting Head of the Samaria Council Yossi Dagan said that some people at the celebration called for the murder of Jews.
“Unfortunately, the reality of occupation…sometimes it spills over into hostile expressions and cruel actions,” said Yesh Din Director Haim Erlich.
Dagan said Yesh Din’s activity “crosses a red line, and brings them to depths I wouldn’t have dreamed they would reach,” Israel National News reported.
