Israeli convicted of inciting racism

JERUSALEM, June 25 (UPI) -- A court in Jerusalem convicted right-wing Israeli activist Itamar Ben-Gvir Monday of supporting a terror organization and inciting racism.

The Jerusalem Magistrates Court found Ben-Gvir guilty in two of four separate incidents that took place between 2001 and 2002, Ynetnews reported.


Ben-Gvir was convicted of carrying signs calling for the expulsion of Arabs and supporting the views of assassinated U.S. Rabbi Meir Kahane.

Ben-Gvir was acquitted of waving a banner saying "Arabs out" due to lack of evidence and also for yelling "death to Arabs" following a terror attack in Jerusalem.

Ben-Gvir plans to appeal Monday's verdict.

"Again it is proven that part of Israel's judges are two-faced leftists," he said.
