Israel: Shin Bet nabs far-right Israeli activist

Published August 6, 2015 by godshope1971

The Shin Bet security service arrests far-right activist Meir Ettinger, Channel 10’s Roy Sharon says.

If Ettinger remains silent during questioning, he will be transferred to administrative detention, Sharon explains.

Ettinger, the grandson of the murdered Israeli-American right-wing fundamentalist Meir Kahane, is the prime target of the Shin Bet’s so-called Jewish Division, which deals with Jewish extremists.

The Shin Bet attributes his arrest to his “involvement in activities by Jewish extremist groups.”

The arrest comes hours after Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan tells Israel Radio that the perpetrators of Friday’s deadly firebomb attack on a Palestinian home are “extremist, anarchist, religious,” who believe that the country’s laws do not apply to them.
He says Sunday’s cabinet decision to apply administrative detention to Jewish terror suspects as well as Palestinian ones gives security forces the tools necessary to combat Jewish terrorism.
