(JNS.org) 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 JNS.org 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.
