Hagai Amir, the brother of Yitzhak Rabin’s assassin Yigal Amir, was detained and questioned by police on Tuesday evening on suspicion of incitement following a Facebook post he wrote against President Reuven Rivlin.

 In the post, which was published on Tuesday, Amir wrote “Rivlin is a kiss-up politician. He’s not the one who will determine if my brother is released or not, only God can decide, just as God decided that Rabin would die – even though Rivlin and his friends didn’t agree. He [God] ruled that Rivlin would be president, and the time has come for him [God] to rule that Rivlin together with the Zionist state must pass from the Earth, just as Sodom did, because of the crimes they committed legally against their own people. This day is not far off.”

Amir’s post was written two days after Rivlin wrote a Facebook post in which he vowed that Yigal Amir would never be released from prison.
