MK Ofir Akunis (Likud) asked the Attorney General, Yehuda Weinstein, to open a criminal investigation of MK Afou Agbaria (Hadash) on the charge of incitement against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.  The request follows a status on his Facebook page of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu with blood-stained hands and blood-splattered clothes at the start of the Pillar of Defense military operation.  The caption under the image says: “Citizens of Israel, vote for me! Look, I have fresh blood on my hands!” (Arutz7)
