and asked Oppenheimer’s age, adding: “We hope he’ll finish the year, or not. I
hope not, and if steps need to be taken to ensure this, we will do
On Tuesday the organization posted a note on their Facebook page
saying that the incident represented the latest in a series of “serious,
dangerous threats made against Peace Now” and called on the public to condemn
such “acts of incitement against the left-wing in Israel.”
unknown assailants sprayed “No leftists, no terror attacks” on the fence outside
of the organization’s office in Jerusalem.
In perhaps the most famous
such incident across the organization in recent years, in November vandals
sprayed “price tag” graffiti on the stairwell of a home belonging to Peace Now
activist Hagit Ofran’s in Jerusalem.
The graffiti included the messages
“Hagit Ofran, RIP” and “Hagit Ofran, Rabin is waiting for you.”
