Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein is receiving tight security out of concern of an attack by right-wing activists, according to a Sunday-evening report by Channel 10 Television. Threats against Weinstein surfaced following the submission of his opinion for the uprooting the Jews of Migron.
Right-wing activist Baruch Marzel attributed the report to the appointment of Shai Nitzan to the post of Deputy Attorney General for Special Assignments. Marzel said, "We see that Nitzan has started working with Weinstein. The manipulations are the same manipulations. Weinstein does not need bodyguards. This is a joke." He added, "The settler public is who needs protection from the hater of the settlement enterprise Nitzan."
