Israel's Attorney General Orders Investigation

State Attorney General Elyakim Rubinstein has ordered police to launch an investigation against the managers of the Arutz-7 News website citing a possible transgression of the law prohibiting incitement as the justification.

Rubinstein explains that a request was made by Meretz MK Zahava Gal-On claiming an article “expulsion not transfer” constituted a violation of the incitement law.
COMMENTS from Nissan Ratzlav-Katz, Opinion Editor:
Who's next? This is outrageous! Ladies and Gentlemen, if you care about and depend on Arutz-7's English website, IsraelNationalNews.com, and if you care about and depend on freedom of speech -- now is the time to speak out.

If not, tomorrow may be too late.
