First it was President Reuven Rivlin. Then it was Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, followed by Attorney-General Yehuda Weinstein and Supreme Court President Miriam Naor. Now it's Education Minister Naftali Bennett's turn to be fitted for an SS uniform.

Bennett on Wednesday posted a photograph of a meeting he held with school principals in Nazareth on his Twitter feed.

In response to his post, a Twitter user who goes by the name "Asheriko" wrote: "Naftali Bennett, you are a leftist piece of trash who is worse than Hitler, a wretched traitor. I hope that along with the skullcap on your head you grow a tumor in your brain, you creeeeep."

Bennett posted a tongue-in-cheek reply, tweeting: "Asher, shalom, the word 'creep' is spelled with two e's. It's my obligation as education minister to correct your spelling."




"Asheriko" has gained notoriety in recent months for incendiary posts depicting Israeli public officials as Nazis.

Netanyahu’s Likud Party wrote letters to Facebook and Twitter last month requesting that the two social media sites remove pictures the party considered incitement.

Asheriko – who has only two followers on Twitter – had posted pictures of Netanyahu, Rivlin, Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon, Naor, Weinstein and State Prosecutor Shai Nitzan in keffiyehs and Nazi uniforms.
