the Newspaper “Haaretz” quotes the post Benjamin Netanyahu posted on Twitter: “a Few days ago I filed a complaint on a series of death threats in my address and the address of my family. Today I, unfortunately, was forced to file another complaint against the scumbag who described how he was going to kill me and my family.” Recording Netanyahu made a screenshot of the message, according to which the threat was contained in a commentary published on the ha’aretz website. Subsequently, the editor of the publication the review was removed.
About two weeks ago, prosecutors have charged with inciting violence 40-year-old resident of the North country. He posted to Facebook calling for the killing of not only Netanyahu, but also the Chairman of the party “Avoda” Amir Peretz and Minister of labour of Itzik Shmuel. Moreover, according to the materials of the open criminal case, the defendant, a mental disability which has not yet been confirmed, wrote on his page about the readiness to go to jail for that man who will kill Netanyahu. Last month the Prime Minister was forced to file a complaint against leftist activist, calling to throw Molotov cocktails at the residence of the Prime Minister.
In the Jewish state will never forget what happened in November 1995. Was then assassinated Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin. His personal guard were agents of the Shin bet (Israeli General security service). But without a police cover-guard politicians and statesmen, and especially members of their families, is never complete. Israeli experts point out that Netanyahu’s appeal to the police to the threat of extremists – the first time in the history of the state, when Prime Minister during his term shall submit an application to the police.
According to paragraph 192 of the Israeli Penal code, a person threatening another person in any way – physical violence, deprivation of liberty, property, reputation or earnings of his or any other person, is punishable by deprivation of liberty for up to three years if there are no other aggravating circumstances. Lawyer Theodore Leszczynski drew attention to the “RG” on the fact that a complaint to the police for threats in social networks and media in your address and the address of the son is initiated by Netanyahu himself, although such materials must first keep track of law enforcement agencies.
“Israeli intelligence agencies we must remember the tragic case of Swedish Prime Minister Olof Palme, murdered on 28 February 1986, half-mad drug addict Christer Petersson – like Leszczynski, – when the future killer openly threatened the leader of the country, these threats then became known to the police, but was not considered by them seriously.”
