Some Shas cultists were nailed
for endangering lives at a rally for a failed attempt to set up an alternative to the awful Shas party:
Three male Jewish suspects were arrested early Wednesday morning after allegedly throwing a firebomb shortly before midnight at a large youth rally supporting embattled Yahad party chairman Eli Yishai in Jerusalem’s Har Nof.
According to Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld, the firebomb exploded in the middle of a street near Yishai’s home, where the gathering of approximately 200 assembled. No one was injured, he said.
“Police arrived shortly after the petrol bomb was thrown and found the three suspects, two of whom are minors, hiding in Har Nof,” Rosenfeld said.
After spending several hours in jail, the three were arraigned at Jerusalem Magistrate’s Court Wednesday afternoon, he said, at which time a judge placed them under house arrest for at least five days.
Whenever I see these kind of hoodlums only get house arrest, that's very disappointing. A serious offense that could've caused terrible injuries requires more than just house arrest. Their age status should not keep them from being put in jail either.
The rally took place in front of Yishai’s home to support the politician following weak election results. Yishai leaders have alleged that Shas activists perpetrated voter fraud, resulting in the poor showing.
It's possible, and they may have tried this at least once before, since their minions seem to have a severe hatred of any rival daring to trod on their turf.
