MK Ben-Ari: Penalty for Terrorist Sheikh Too Light

Member of Knesset Dr. Michael Ben Ari (National Union Party) believes that the three-year sentence for Sheikh Nazem Abu-Salim is "too light." Dr. Ben-Ari said, "there is no doubt that if a hilltop youth was sentenced for price tag graffiti it would be a more severe punishment." Abu-Salim was accused of inciting violence which lead to the murder of an Israeli taxi driver and several attempted murders.
