Israeli left-wing activists attend Arab celebration calling for murder of Jews

( Israeli left-wing activists from the Yesh Din organization celebrated with Arabs at the Jewish community of Homesh in Samaria, which was transferred from Jewish hands by the Israeli government in the wake of a Yesh Din lawsuit. During the celebration, a banner was waived depicting a religious Jewish man with a spear through his mouth. Other Jewish symbols in the area were replaced with PLO flags.

Acting Head of the Samaria Council Yossi Dagan said that some people at the celebration called for the murder of Jews, Israel National News reported.

Gerald Steinberg, head of NGO Monitor, told that Yesh Din “is essentially a political arm of the European Union and its member states, which provide at least 70 percent of the funds for this small fringe group of Israelis.”

“In addition to such expressions of support for Palestinian incitement, Yesh Din promotes the objectives of its European funders by exploiting legal frameworks to punish Israeli soldiers,” Steinberg said.
