Kahane Complains About Assault

Download PDF for this date

Givatayim Mayor Yitzhak Yaron and the secretaries of the local Labor town council and of the local branch of the Labor Party have been questioned by the police, following a complaint by Kach leader Rabbi Meir Kahane that they had assaulted him during an outdoor meeting he tried to hold in the town earlier this month. Kahane and his followers were forced to leave the area without holding their rally because of a noisy counter-demonstration during which Kahane was spattered with eggs. Yaron denied Kahane’s accusation and said that neither he nor the town council members were involved in the counter-demonstration.
