'Machsom Watch' rights group: Probe MK Ben-Ari for incitement

Human rights organization calls on attorney general to launch criminal investigation against National Union MK who called to 'persecute leftist traitors'

Published: 01.06.11

Female activists at the Machsom Watch human rights organization on Thursday urged Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein to launch a criminal investigation against Knesset Member Michael Ben-Ari on suspicion of incitement, after he referred to members of leftist organizations as "traitors who must be persecuted at any cost."

The National Union MK made his comments to some 20 leading right-wing activists, in a closed door discussion during an SOS Israel conference in Jerusalem.

"His statements need to be condemned – not only by human rights organizations, but by all members of Knesset," a Machsom Watch official was quoted as saying.

The NGO slammed the prime minister for not denouncing Ben-Ar
