A complaint was filed with the police last Thursday against the web site “Real Right-wing Movement,” regarding incitement to commit murder. The web site features multiple calls for murder of members of the gay community. A full week after filing the complaint, the discussion forum on the web site continues, and some of the comments published there are still calling for murder of homosexuals.

Tali Attar, who was murdered by her neighbor half a year ago, had gone to the police prior to the murder and reported that her neighbor had threatened to stab her. A report from the police communication network during the event shows that the police treated Attar’s complaint dismissively. Policeman Shai Shlomo, who received the report from the police call center, said over the network that “neighbors are fighting, throwing garbage, and I have to waste a squad car on that.” (Hebrew)

The Petach Tikva District Court granted the claims by surviving members of Inbal Amram, who had been murdered by a thief in 2006. The family claimed that the delays by the police in declaring her absence prevented her being found in a timely manner and rescued. The judge stated in her decision that “the police had extremely faulty judgement.” The parents said in response to the decision that “justice has been done. We are sad to say that those same policemen who made light of us that night still serve in the police, at the same position. Policemen like that should not stay in the police, nor should they protect the public.”
