MK Otniel Schneller (Kadima) has issued a complaint to the police about Frida Hecht, one of the participants in TV reality show Big Brother, after Hecht said she will compliment even “Palestinians who’ll come and explode themselves in front of me. I’ll compliment them for succeeding”. In his complaint Schneller said: “In the tension which exists between freedom of expression and defending our existence, clear boundaries have to be defined. An Israeli citizen stating his opinion towards the citizens of Israel and justifies actions meant to destroy Israel, is crossing the boundaries which endanger our existence”. Schneller believes Hecht is guilty of a felony “related to mutiny, incitement, and supporting terrorism”.
