Fake news seems to be threatening the upcoming elections in Israel, after Yisrael Beytenu was accused of planning to ban circumcision - a central ceremony in the Jewish faith.

The Yisrael Beytenu Partyled by Avigdor Liberman, responded: " Yisrael Beytenu would like to make it clear that the information shared on the Internet is incorrect. Yisrael Beytenu respects Jewish tradition, yet opposes religious coercion."

 

The tweet above posted from a fake Likud supporter's account, says: " This is what Liberman does to Judaism? He wants to wipe out Judaism, Is he certainly a Jew? To stop circumcision - Who does he think he is? He should be ashamed of himself - He wants to get rid of Shabbat, the rabbinical court and the institution of marriage. Why not just get rid of Judaism itself!"

The party says it intends on filing a complaint to the police: " Yisrael Beytenu will fight against this piece of fake news, which was spread on the Internet."

It added that that it believes the source of this fake news is Likud supporters - on the top of the Tweet.
