marzA large force of Yassam police surrounding the kenos held in Nof Ayalon on Thursday, 12 Elul, a kenos addressing the recent wave of administrative arrests and orders limiting the movements of recipients issued against right-wing Jews. Attending the kenos were rabbonim, public officials and activists. Five recipients of administrative order limiting their movements who were attending the event were arrested.

Among the participants were Professor Hillel Weiss, Rabbi Yoel Schwartz (Nachal Chareidi), Rabbi Gideon Binyamin, former MK Dr. Michael Ben-Ari, Bentzion Gupstein (Lehava), Noam Federman, Baruch Marzel, attorney Yitzchak Baum and Meir Bretler.

According to eyewitnesses, police erased video footage taken on smartphones by participants in the event as the videos document activities of police, as the latter claimed some of the persons seen in the video were ISA (Israel Security Agency – Shin Bet) agents from the Jewish Unit and their identities must not be revealed.

Also present was the director of Honenu, Shmuel Medad, who expressed outrage over the actions of police. He stated it is unacceptable that police act as they see fit without regard for the law and rights of individuals. He lamented the fact that police operate under such orders, permitting them to do as they please.

Baruch Marzel shouted “this is a police state, a state in which its police enter a public forum, surround the building, and photograph participants to intimidate them. This is exactly the point of the kenos – that this is a police state”.

  1. this government is acting like Meretz Bolshevik traitors
    we need a new great Tzaddik like Yigal Amir.,to put Ya’alon
    and all the politicians who are responsible for the detention of the greatest Zionist heroes from their misery.

  2. Like Duh!

    75 years of constant warfare. An army that relies on concription (something almost all other western democratices have rejected).
    Ruling territories where the majority of the population don’t want you.

    If you don’t want a police state in Eretz Yisrael – become Hareidi and support Satmar. No matter who is in charge, a zionist state will of necessity be a police state since zionism, with its view of dispossesing the Yismaelim from Eretz Yisrael, inevitably guarantees constant war.
