A ramming attack was reported against Noam party activists in Petah Tikva on Tuesday, according to the party's spokesperson.
 
A black car allegedly attempted to run-over the activists as they tried to place their party banners on Yarkon junction ahead of the upcoming elections. 
 
“The driver left his car, shouted [at us] and tossed the sign away,” the activist said. “If we were unable to jump out of his way, I don’t know if I could give testimony here today.” 
 
The Noam party is a radical conservative party that openly calls for a restoration of "normalcy," which they view as the suppression of LGBTQ rights, having previously compared gay-marriages to marrying pets in their campaigns.
 
On Wednesday, pro-LGBTQ activists stood next to Noam activists in Jerusalem with rainbow flags with stars of David on them and stickers calling to "Love your fellow man as you love yourself."
