While He Sits Shivah, Hate Graffiti Sprayed on Justice Minister’s Home

The graffiti on the house of Justice Minister Yariv Levin.

People spray-painted the words “Yariv Levin – the people’s enemy” on the wall of the justice minister’s house on Friday while Levin is still in the week of shivah for his father, Prof. Aryeh Levin, who passed away earlier this week.

The move was condemned immediately by members of both the coalition and the opposition.

“The spraying of hateful words on the home of Justice Minister Yariv Levin while he sits shivah for his father is a hateful thing; shame on you,” said Education Minister Yoav Kisch. “Hate is what will destroy us as a society, not the reform.”

“The serious hate speech that was sprayed onto Yariv Levin’s house while he sits shivah for his father is the result of an inciteful campaign that was meant to sow hate toward us,” said Culture and Sport Minister Miki Zohar. “We are democratically applying the will of the people and are bringing a wanted change. The incitement and lies that our democracy is in danger is a spin that was meant to scare the public. The judicial reform will be completed.”

A statement by the police said that officers would begin collecting evidence.
