MK Katz: Investigate if Bar-Am worked for Shin Bet

January 13, 2011 10:46

MK Ya'akov Katz (National Union) published an open letter to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Thursday, asking if Uri Bar-Am had ever been employed by the Israel Security Services (Shin Bet).

Bar-Am's arrest on Tuesday, on suspicion of uploading a video calling for the murder of deputy state prosecutor Shai Nitzan, "seems to be another provocation by the left and the Shin Bet, in order to blacken the faces of those who contribute most to the state," Katz wrote, referring to settlers.

"Just a few days ago, a call to murder me was published online by a left-wing radical," he added. "I complained to Knesset security and the police, but I did not get any additional security."
