The Left has learned nothing from the Rabin murder.
The media can stop this and calm the spirits.
Mr. Herzog – the writing is on the wall, and you can stop this and calm the spirits. You do not have the right to remain silent. When leftists, including members of your party, take part in violent events against my party, you may not remain silent.
Last night I arrived to a Bayit Yehudi campaign event in Haifa. My security detail would not let me enter the building. We argued for 30 minutes. My security team told me that there was danger to my life if I enter an event being held by my own party, because of radical leftist activists who had entered the hall.
When the event began, shouting and violence by the leftists began, and the security people asked to take me out of the hall. I refused, and soon afterwards refused for a second time.
Two days ago, leftist activists drew swastikas on a picture of me and they also gave me a Hitler mustache. After this incident it was decided to provide me with personal bodyguards. Earlier this week I was forbidden from entering an event at an academic institution in certain hours, ‘because there are Arabs at the same time and security-wise, you cannot be allowed into the event’.
That is not all. A Channel 10 journalist compared me to a fascist leader. A journalist in The Marker says that ‘I have the blood of five soldiers on my hands.’ In the Haaretz peace conference a few months ago, hundreds of leftists shouted ‘fascist’ and ‘murderer’ at me and force was even used against me. The organizers did not denounce the occurrence – after all, it was just Left violence against the Right.
We still haven’t mentioned Ayelet Shaked. Just the other day, someone wrote her before she was supposed to appear at a panel: ‘You had really better not come to the Gimnasia Harealit High School on Sunday – or I will carry out a Stalin-style purge against the Bayit Yehudi people’.
The violent leftists dress up as someone different each time. Sometimes they are activists for public housing, other times they are LBGT activists or organizations against the ‘occupation’. There is one small problem, these are political activists, and they include activists in Herzog’s Labor party.
All of their violent events are planned, documented, everything is written, and everything is saved.
I know, if a group of right wingers went to crash leftists’ events, and provoke violence there time after time, they probably would already be under administrative detention somewhere, and the media would probably be agitated.
I really can’t tell you that I have any expectations here.
Let me clear on this. I am a representative of the public.
Our public cares about this nation, opposes a Palestinian state and opposes releasing terrorists. I will not give up one centimeter of the Land of Israel.
This violence by leftists will not change my schedule by one inch. No one will silence us. No one.
