This week, a Magistrate Court released Left-wing activists who demonstrated on Saturday in front of the settlement of Havat Maon. The court criticized the police, which would only release the activists if they would promise not to demonstrate there again. The judge asserted that the police does not have the authority to limit the activists’ freedom of expression.

Minister of Foreign Affairs Avigdor Lieberman (Yisrael Beitenu) said this afternoon in a factional meeting at the Knesset that the left-wing organizations are “terror abettors and nothing more, their whole purpose is to weaken the Israeli army and its resolve to defend the citizens of Israel.” Lieberman attacked the MKs who claimed that the committee to investigate left-wing organizations is McCarthyism and said that “it is those two-faced persons in the national camp, who are prepared to sacrifice the full interests of the national camp, are to blame for the fact that the national camp has never ruled the State of Israel, not even when we won in the ballot box. The right has never truly succeeded in ruling and trying to convey its world view, to lead the country, because of those turncoats who are constantly busy with one thing only: proving how right they are, and are simply a group that has become a band of discerning people, whose whole goal is to justify its existence.”

Two Israeli left-wing activists who participate regularly in demonstrations against the Separation Wall in the Occupied West Bank were summoned for a conversation with “Rona” of the Shabak (GSS/General Security Service). The two activists are members of Anarchists Against the Wall. Several months ago, left wing activist Yonatan Shapiro was summoned for an informal interrogation by the Shabak, and was interrogated by a woman who also introduced herself as “Rona”. (English)
