Right wing activist Moshe Ben Zikri was elected to serve in the communal administration of the Pisgat Ze’ev neighborhood in Jerusaelm. Ben Zikri, known as “the terror of the Arabs”, led a campaign of harassment against Arab citizens who became residents of the neighborhood. Inter alia, Ben Zikri and his men burned down shops and locks, and even prevented mixed – i.e., Jewish and Arab -  couples from meeting. Ben Zikri campaigned for the position under the platform of “fighting Arabs taking over the neighborhood and keeping Pisgat Ze’ev Jewish”. (Hebrew)
