Israeli activists tell Rahm Emanuel to stay away from Kotel
Reports from Israeli news outlets are saying that White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel is being asked by right-wing activists to stay away from Kotel, when he arrives in Israel to celebrate his son's Bar Mitzvah. The Jerusalem Post and Arutz Sheva go into detail about the letter to Mr. Emanuel from Ben-Gvir and Baruch Marzel.:
"Throughout the past year you have been whispering in Obama's ear that he should pressure Israel, working like a fifth column in the White House against the Jewish people and the state of Israel. Recently you even told our consul in Los Angeles that Americans were 'disgusted with Israelis.' Unlike Israeli leaders, we will not brownnose and try to find favor in your eyes. We promise to welcome you in a manner you deserve – not with flowers and candy, but with our disgust for what you represent,"
