Peace Now leaders home vandalized

A 21-year-old man was arraigned July 17 in connection with vandalizing the home of a prominent peace activist.

“Hagit you’re dead” and “Kahane was right” were spray-painted in and around the Jerusalem apartment of Peace Now Settlement Watch director Hagit Ofran, with the latter referring to slain Kach party leader Meir Kahane. The graffiti was discovered July 16.

Last November, vandals attacked her home with graffiti including swastikas and the words “Rabin is waiting for you,” referring to the assassination of Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin in November 1995. Her apartment also was targeted last September. — jta
