Rabbi Eli Ben-Dahan: Fire Arab Workers Who Show Solidarity with Hamas

"Employers, fire the Arab-Israeli workers you have who openly express happiness at the death of Israeli soldiers, and identify with Hamas," is what Deputy Minister of Religious Affairs Rabbi Eli Ben-Dahan posted on his Facebook page today.

"The texting throughout social networks are threatening and promote fear.  They start with comparisons to Hitler and end with a call to kill more Israeli soldiers", he added.

He emphasized that "the soldiers who right now are sacrificing their lives for us want us to protect them from the waves of hate aimed at them.  It is not logical to feed the mouth that bites the hand that feeds it."
