Police opened on Wednesday a criminal investigation against Professor Hillel Weiss for his bombastic public statements against Judea Division commander Col. Yehuda Fuchs during Tuesday's evacuation of the Hebron marketplace. Weiss cursed Fuchs, saying "may his wife be a widow, his mother bereaved, and his children orphans." According to Israel Radio, Judea Samaria Police will question Weiss under warning for allegedly insulting a public official. Weiss responded that curses are protected under freedom of speech, and are employed by [Shas spiritual adviser] Rabbi Ovadia Yosef and soccer fans. "No one has a moral right to question me," Weiss said. "The police and the army had better look into their own actions. I don't care about [being] questioned."
