Member of Knesset Michael Ben-Ari (“National Union”) said during “Jerusalem Day”, that left-wing demonstrators are “traitors” and that “Israel should treat them the way that traitors are usually being treated… There are prisons, but the best is to send them to Gaza.

Committees of settlers in the West Bank filed a complaint in the Modi’in police station against the general secretary of Peace Now organization, Yariv Oppenheimer, on the suspicion of breaking the treason and espionage sections of the new Citizenship Law. The settlers base their complaint on documents published by wikileaks web site, which state that Oppenheimer and Peace Now have been providing the US embassy in Israel with information about construction in the settlements. The settlers claim, that this hurts the sovereignty of the state of Israel, and it should be regarded as treason.

At a meeting of the Eretz Yisrael Shelanu [our land of Israel] movement with representatives of Noar Hagvaot [hilltop youths], a decision was taken to start a campaign against the Shas party, because it has decided to abstain in a vote about the construction freeze in the Occupied Palestinian Territories. Meeting participants said that the Shas leaders were “engaged in acts of treason” and that “there is a duty to protest against them.” Rabbi Shalom Dov Wolfa said at the meeting that “we’ve got to remind the Shas people and the ones responsible for handing over territories that there are laws and there are judges, and that they will pay for this crime.” (Hebrew)
