Shomron Residents: Act Against Inciteful Academics


Chairman Benny Katzover of the Shomron (Samaria) Residents' Committee sent a letter to Education Minister Gid'on Sa'ar, Thursday night, in which he calls for action against dozens of academics in colleges and universities who have expressed support for breaking the law and readiness to do so with an organization of "civil disobedience". The organization has been working for more than a year to smuggle Arab women and children from the Palestinian Authority into Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, among other Israeli cities, for days of enjoyment, as publicized by the left-leaning Ha'aretz daily. Its members challenge the legality of  the laws they are breaking.

Katzover says it's not too hard to guess the reaction if a right-wing organization would publicize items about refusing orders to evict Jews from their homes in Judea and Samaria in the same spirit. The committee has filed a complaint with the police, charging the civil disobedience organization with calling to violate the law, incitement to sedition, endangering human life and violating an order under a law to restrict traffic.
