A bullet and a handwritten note reading "Your days are numbered" were received Sunday by moderate settler leader Hasdai Eliezer, who heads the Alfei Menashe Regional Council. The note was signed, "from the Local Authorities assassins." Eliezer told The Jerusalem Post he was surprised to receive the death threat, as he has not been publicly active outside his settlement since he resigned his post as Deputy Chairman of the Council of Jewish Communities of Judea, Samaria and the Gaza Strip in mid-February. At the time, he spoke out against the council's failure to keep a lid on settler violence, particularly in Amona. But he said he has made no comments since then.
