Right-wing leaders are referred to as “Nazis” by the anti-reform protest leader

A leader of the anti-government demonstrations in Israel referred to the right-wing members of the government as “Nazis” in a tirade.

Later, the leader expressed regret for her expression. One of the leaders of the anti-reform organizations in Israel, Shikma Bressler, a physicist, claimed during a panel discussion on Friday that “it is forbidden to hold a dialogue with Nazis, whether they are Jews or not.”

Bressler had been referring to Bezalel Smotrich, the finance minister, and Itamar Ben Gvir, the minister of national security, when he said that there could be no agreement with the far-right members of Netanyahu’s coalition.

She used the widespread use of stickers endorsing Jewish terrorists at a pro-government march on Thursday in Jerusalem as an illustration.

Many protesters held bumper stickers at the rally in front of the Supreme Court that read, “Jewish terrorists like Baruch Goldstein, who murdered 29 Palestinians in Hebron in 1994; Amiram Ben Uliel, who is currently in jail for allegedly murdering a Palestinian family in the West Bank village of Duma in 2015; extremist rabbi Meir Kahane; and Rabin’s killer Yigal Amir “were right.” Bressler expressed regret on Saturday for using the epithet “Nazi.”

“My comments were incorrect. In the conversation, I used a word that has no place,” she tweeted. “I’m sorry, and I apologize for this.” Netanyahu and other right-wing officials criticized Bressler’s statements as incitement,” notwithstanding her apology.

Netanyahu stated in a statement that “this scandalous remark is Holocaust distortion and is also wild incitement to murder government ministers and elected representatives.” The freedom to protest does not grant the freedom to instigate.
