Fbi Inverstigating 35 Israelis

Download PDF for this date

The FBI is investigating 35 people in Israel suspected of attacking Arab activists and alleged former Nazi war criminals in the United States, according to a report in Hadashot Thursday.

Israeli police, assisted by informants, are keeping the suspects under surveillance, the newspaper said.

Most of them are active in Rabbi Meir Kahane’s Kach movement, with some living in Kiryat Arba, the militant Orthodox township adjacent to Hebron in the West Bank.

Hadashot said one of the suspects is Yekutiel Ben-Yaakov, a spokesman for the new “State of Judea” which Kahane said would be established in any territories evacuated by Israel.
