Zionist groups expressed satisfaction Friday over the decision to investigate Professor Eyal Nir for incitement. Nir called on the public to attack Zionist youth dancing in the streets on Jerusalem day and “break their elbows.”
The Land of Israel Legal Forum said the decision was a good one, but questioned why prosecutors had waited several months to look into Nir’s statements. If a right-wing professor had called to attack leftist demonstrators, it would have taken the Justice Ministry just days to decide to open an investigation, Forum activists said.
