Bar-Ilan student indicted for incitement for series of racist Facebook posts against Arabs

A Bar-Ilan University Chemistry and Biology student who wrote a series of Facebook posts calling for the murder of Arabs and left-wingers was indicted for incitement and harassment in Ramle on Monday.

According to the indictment, Eliyahu Eliav Moalem of Modi’in wrote a series of Facebook posts in the summer of 2014, during a time of great tension in Israel, following the kidnapping and murder of three Israeli teens in the West Bank by Hamas and the killing of 16-year-old Palestinian teen Mohammed Abu-Khdeir, who was abducted and burned alive by Jewish extremists.

“Amid the sensitive and incendiary public atmosphere at the time, Moalem deliberately and repeatedly published on his Facebook account a series of posts directly calling for violence against Palestinians and Israel Arabs and published statements with the intent of inciting racism against them [Arabs],” the indictment states.
