0

Following the outcry from Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and over the Jot Municipality naming a street for arch terrorist Yasser Arafat YM”S, the municipality has removed the signs.

Interior Minister Aryeh Deri probed the matter and quickly learned the naming of the street was unauthorized, sending the message the signs must come down, or else. Deri sent a letter to Council Head Muhammed Warrad, informing him he has 48 hours to take the signs down – and he complied.
