The post drew angry comments calling Roth mentally ill and saying she should be ashamed of herself, while her supporters said the post was funny.

Roth was a Peace Now activist and adviser to former prime minister Ehud Barak and ex-Labor chairman Amram Mitzna, who became right-wing while researching the disengagement and is now religious and works at Megalim – The City of David Institute for Jerusalem Studies.
