The country's leadership roundly and unequivocally condemned a video circulating the Internet which reportedly called for Shai Nitzan's murder, with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu issuing a statement saying that while criticism is legitimate, a call for murder aimed at the judiciary "harms the country's democratic values and must be completely eradicated."

Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman issued a statement saying that nothing justified a call for murder, and "all discussion needs to be carried out in a legitimate fashion within the framework of the law."

And Defense Minister Ehud Barak issued a statement saying that this "incitement had to be cut off with full determination, without compromise."
