Israeli authorities obsessed with conflating graffiti with terrorist attacks have distributed restraining orders to at least three right-wing activists they suspect might disrupt the Pope’s visit to Israel. The Shabak is apparently concerned the activists might do something disruptive and dangerous, such as paint graffiti on a wall, or hand out anti-Christian flyers.
The activists who have received the orders will be barred from certain areas during the visit.
One activist is forbidden to leave Netanya, one forbidden to leave Kiryat Arba, and the third can’t leave the neighborhood of Kiryat Moshe in Jerusalem.
The pope is visiting Israel between May 24-27.
