Jerusalem - An Israeli anti-settlement activist says vandals have sprayed hate graffiti on her home for the third time in ten months.

Hagit Ofran said she found messages on her stairwell on Monday reading “Hagit - you’re dead,” and “Kahane was right” - a reference to the late ultranationalist rabbi Meir Kahane, who advocated expelling Arabs from Israel.

Ofran monitors West Bank settlement construction for the Peace Now movement. The group has frequently been a target of right-wing wrath in Israel, and Ofran says her home was targeted twice last November.

“This is clearly from the right wing - they don’t like what I’m trying to do,” Ofran said.

Police said they are investigating and searching for suspects. No arrests were made in the previous two cases.

"She has a din Roidef al pi halacha."

Big deal. There are only three countries where strict religious la applies, and they are Iran, Saudi Arabia and the Vatican.

Israel is not yet a theocracy, תודה לאל.

Individuals who side with the enemy should be sent over to the enemy, hopefully never to be heard from again, period.

Why is it that extreme left wingers are called 'activists' and extreme right wingers get called 'extremists'?

You may disagree as vehemently as you want, no one has a right to his/her opinion as regards to giving aid and comfort to terrorists whose only profession is murdering innocent civilians, I wish her much worse than what she experienced up till now
