Right-wing politicians did not release statements responding to the killing of a Palestinian mother of nine, allegedly by Jewish Israeli rock-throwers, while the Left condemned it as a terrorist attack.
Opposition leader Shelly Yacimovich said “the murder of Aisha Rabi by right-wing extremists is an insane hate crime and an act of terror, and an explosive device that will bring about revenge attacks and a chain of bloodshed.
“It will be difficult for the prime minister who is leading wild incitement against legal authorities to defend the rule of law, but I hope he will find a bit of integrity to condemn and show disgust for this act and to fully back the Shin Bet, which is now dealing with obstruction of an investigation and organized incitement against its actions for Israel’s security,” Yacimovich added.
Joint List MK Nivin Abu Rahmoun said the incident is “just one example out of many of Jewish nationalist crimes against Palestinians in Area C and areas near settlements. Politicians on the Right incite and provide a tailwind for such actions, contributing to negligence by law enforcement.”
Tzipi Livni Party leader Tzipi Livni said “terror is terror,” and that it must be fought “without stuttering.”
“The wild west in Judea and Samaria puts us all in danger,” Livni warned, “a security danger that could light a fuse on a barrel of explosives…along with serious harm to the values of Israeli society. We need leadership to separate from the Palestinians and strengthen the rule of law.”
