Prime Minister Binaymin Netanyahu on Tuesday addressed the arrest of Kiryat Arba Chief Rabbi Dov Lior and the protests that followed, saying, "Israel is a lawful state, the law applies to everyone and I call on all Israeli citizens to obey the law."
Lior was arrested and released Monday afternoon as part of an investigation over his endorsement of a book that purportedly incites violence entitled, Torat Hamelekh (King’s Torah).
Hundreds demonstrated the arrest in Jerusalem, including outside the Supreme Court. Following confrontations with police, 25 protesters were arrested.
