A leftist chemistry prof who made an obscene comment on Jerusalem Day will finally be investigated for his offense
The State Prosecutors’ Office has ordered police to investigate a leftist Israeli professor who called for violence against Jewish youth on Jerusalem Day. The rare decision to investigate a figure on the political left for incitement to violence follows four months in which prosecutors received multiple complaints over the professor’s comments.
Professor Eyal Nir, who teaches chemistry at Ben-Gurion University, wrote on his Facebook page, “I call on the world to come and help break these disgusting peoples’ elbows.” The comment was made regarding youth who danced in the streets of Jerusalem on Jerusalem Day. [...]
Those who called to investigate Nir said there was reason for concern that his remarks could have led to violence. Jews have often been targeted for violent attack in Jerusalem, noted MK Uri Ariel, making Nir’s call to attack a real threat.
Several also noted the discrepancy between police treatment of Nir, and that of rabbis who gave their approbation to the book Torat HaMelech.
The biggest question here is if the professor will be dismissed from his job and made to perform community service, and certainly ostracized by sane society?
