Akiva Hacohen Feels Persecuted


Akiva Hacohen received an expulsion order for 12 months from his home in Yitzhar along with 11 other right wing activists, and explained to Arutz 7 how difficult the last two weeks have been for the family. He has been living in Yitzhar for the last 10 years, and has a flour mill that supplies Jerusalem and Judea and Samaria. He presumes that the order was to preempt the coming September expected PA Arab riots and Jewish responses to them. “No Arabs got such and order. This is political persecution.”
