Gopstein on Rosenthal: Katznelson Turning in His Grave


Bentzi Gopstein, head of the LEHAVA anti-assimilation organization, criticized MK Mickey Rosenthal (Labor), after the latter turned to the Attorney General and asked to have LEHAVA declared illegal.

"For anyone who meets with Holocaust denier Abu Mazen it is only natural to ask to outlaw an organization fighting against assimilation. As per Rosenthal’s method, one should reject the racist law of return and undo the fact that the State of Israel is a Jewish state - Berl Katznelson is turning in his grave," he said.
