Haim Pearlman, suspected of four counts of murder and seven counts of attempted murder, was remanded in custody until July 22 by the Petah Tikva District Court ;last Thursday.

Pearlman, who is associated with the outlawed Kach movement, was arrested Tuesday night by Jerusalem Police and the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency). As well as murder, he is suspected of possessing illegal weapons.

During the hearing held in his absence police alleged that in 1998 and 1999 Pearlman, 29, from Beit Rabban near Yavne, went on a stabbing spree, killing three Palestinians in the Jerusalem neighborhoods of Mea She’arim and Abu Tor.

Pearlman released audio recordings to Channel 2 of an alleged Shin Bet urging him to kill the head of the Islamic Movement’s Northern Branch, Raed Salah, two days before he was detained that were broadcast following his arrest. Pearlman claimed he was entrapped by the Shin Bet and said the recordings were made sometime in the last few months.
