A group of protesters made a last-ditch effort to stop the government from freeing convicted terrorist murderers last night by blocking the road out of Ofer Prison with their bodies.
Among those who took part in the protest was former Member of Knesset Michael Ben-Ari. In a post to Facebook, Ben-Ari explained the protest, “We’re against freeing terrorists, and in favor of killing them.”
Ben-Ari wore a keffiyeh – a traditional Arab headscarf – to the protest. A journalist asked him why he was wearing it, he reported.
“I answered, ‘So that I can get rights, too,'” he said.
“The state of Israel is engaged in affirmative action for Arabs only,” he accused. “It releases murderers only if they are Arab.” Read more at Israel National News.
