Sternhell: It had to Be Extreme Right

Prof. Zev Sternhell said Friday that he was certain that whoever placed a pipe bomb at his doorstep must have come from the Right. "Many people are capable of doing something like this, but it is clear that it came from the direction of the extreme Right," he said.

"It could be a lone lunatic, a group, three people or an entire community, but it obviously did not come from any other direction. I am not Aberjil," he said, referring to a crime family whose members have been targeted by rivals.

Sternhell was lightly injured in his leg. He was released from Rambam Hospital this morning.
