Yitzhar: Shabak Behavior Proves Bans Political


Officials in the Samarian Jewish community of Yitzhar attacked the behavior of the Shabak Israel Security Agency, Sunday afternoon, following the arrest of a resident of the community who had been exiled under an adminstrative order, last week.

A statement by the community read, "The behavior of the Shabak proves, again, that the administrative expulsion orders constitute pure and simple political abuse and persecution. It now appears obvious that the Shin Bet's request last week to engage in dialog with Yitzhar residents was not made in earnest."
