Peace Now Head: There are More Goldsteins

Members of the leftist group Peace Now toured the Jewish community of Hevron on Tuesday.

Reflecting on the 20th secular-calendar anniversary of Kiryat Arba' resident Baruch Goldstein's killing of 29 Muslims in the Me'arat Hamachpelah Cave of the Patriarchs before he was killed by others, Secretary-General Yariv Oppenheimer of Peace Now said, "Unfortunately, there are those who are continuing Baruch Goldstein's ways. They call themselves the price-tag people and continue to make this place explosive and dangerous." "Price tag" is a label placed on vandalism of leftist and Arab targets in response to attacks or threats on Jewish communities beyond the 1945 Armistice Line, accompanied by the graffiti "price tag."
