“Price Tag” vandals who damage and burn Arab property and spray graffiti on mosques and churches are now official an illegal organization in Israel, thanks to a Security Cabinet decision.
It is not quite clear how a group of people without any formal party or unit can be called an “illegal organization.”
The Security Cabinet stopped short of calling the price tag attackers “terrorists,” despite the insistence of Justice Minister Tzipi Livni and Public Security Minister Yitzchak Aharonovitch, who last month proposed legislation designating them as such.
Both ministers voted against the new classifications for price tag attackers, apparently thinking it is not strong enough.
