Kahane grandson barred from West Bank


JERUSALEM (JTA) — Israel has barred the grandson of Meir Kahane from entering the West Bank for at least three months.  

The Israel Defense Forces issued the order Thursday against Meir Ettinger at Jerusalem’s French Hill junction. Ettinger associates told Haaretz that Ettinger was banned for his involvement in a self-defense course for residents of illegal West Bank outposts that encourages them to be more violent.

The Jerusalem Post reported that Ettinger was served the order over concerns of an escalation of violence in the West Bank in the wake of the Palestinians’ statehood bid this week in the United Nations.
