Interior Minister Aryeh Deri (Shas) on Wednesday attacked the leftists who protest each week outside Attorney General Aryeh Deri's home, claiming Mandelblit's motives were pure and accurate.

"I don't like all the protests outside Attorney General Mandelblit's home," Deri told Army Radio in an interview.

According to Deri, there is a consensus regarding Mandelblit's behavior.

"No one suspects him of being motivated by anything inappropriate," Deri said. "Under my home, people can demonstrate all day if they like. It's a political game. But under the home of the Attorney General - that's not okay."

Regarding his intention to revoke the citizenship of Israelis who joined ISIS, Deri said, "According to the information we received from Shabak (Israel Security Agency), there are twenty Israelis working with that deadly organization. One of them is a soldier in the IDF. Their entire Facebook feeds are filled with hatred, and they walk around with an Israeli passport. I will use every tool I have to fight for the right to forbid them entry to Israel."

Regarding "Women of the Wall," and their intentional provocations, he said, "At the beginning of every Hebrew month, I get angry at how a few WoW provoke people. There are a few women who work tirelessly to create wars and fights. Let them see how this month - the month of mercy and forgiveness - thousands of people come to the Western Wall to say selichot (prayers before Rosh Hashana - the Jewish New Year."
