Arad Resident Indicted for Incitement Via Facebook


The prosecution filed charges with the Be'er Sheva Magistrate Court against Arad resident Shlomi Avraham for incitement, through his Facebook page "Al-Yahud Gang". The content was deemed to contain racist content liable to incite violence against Arabs.

Indictment proceedings were after Attorney-General Yehuda Weinstein turned to the head of the Investigation and Intelligence branch of the police, who were looking into several Facebook pages for objectionable content when Avraham's "Al-Yahud Gang" page came to their attention. 

Following the kidnapping and murder of a Beit Hanina boy a short while ago, calls for similar attacks on Arabs were posted to Avraham's page.
