The Jerusalem Magistrate's Court convicted right-wing activist Itamar Ben-Gvir of support for a terror organization and incitement to racism. Ben-Gvir was charged after he held a sign which read: "Expel the Arab enemy," and after a manifest which read: "Rav Kahane was right, the Arab MKs are a fifth column," was found in his possession. In response to his conviction, the right-wing activist said: "The same legal establishment that gave freedom of speech to (former Balad Chairman Azmi) Bishara and to Arab poets convicts me," he said. "This proves yet again that a portion of Israel's judges are two-faced leftists," he exclaimed.
