Is the Likud Behind the Campaign Against the Rabbis?

Chairman Eliyakim Rubinstein of the Central Elections Committee issued an order, Friday, demanding that the Likud say, by noon on Sunday, if it is responsible for a campaign on the Facebook social site, in which unidentified groups, speaking in the plural, attack rabbis of the religious-Zionist stream. The Supreme Court justice demanded that if the Likud is behind the campaign that it stop the campaign immediately.

The ruling came in a petition by Habayit Hayehudi (Jewish Home-New National Religious Party) to stop the campaign. A full ruling is expected following the Likud's response.
