The indictment also charges the defendant, whose name has not been released for publication, with spraying racist graffiti around the capital.
According to the indictment, the defendant telephoned Oppenheimer in
September, and threatened to "put a bullet in his head." Oppenheimer
later called the police after the defendant allegedly left a message on
his answering service, saying that he was on his way to Oppenheimer's
house and intended to "kill him and put a bullet in his head."
The defendant is later alleged to have called Oppenheimer once more,
threatening to kill him and saying he was a "left-wing maniac."
The defendant is also charged with hanging around 20 A4 pages with
racist messages around Mevesseret Zion last month. One of the messages
allegedly read "Price Tag - kill, kill and kill all the Arabs."
A third charge alleges that in November, following his arrest and bail,
the defendant spray painted a star of David symbol on the Jerusalem
building where Peace Now has its offices, and later sprayed "Kahane was
right" and "Death to Arabs" on the light rail station in Beit Hanina and
on a scout movement building.
