Right-wing activists Itamar Ben-Gvir and Baruch Marzel sent a threatening letter to White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel over the weekend, accusing him of hurting Israel's interests.

"You are the last Hellenist working against the Jewish people and the Land of Israel," they wrote in the letter.

"You whisper in President [Barack] Obama's ears against the state [of Israel], inciting, agitating and working against the entire Jewish people like a fifth column in the White House," they wrote.

Ben-Gvir and Marzel warned that when Emannuel arrives in Israel in the coming months for his son's bar-mitzva, he will be showered with protests and jeers.
