Bennett Corrects Troll in Twitter Smackdown

Education Minister Naftali Bennett (Jewish Home) humorously rebutted a Twitter troll against him Wednesday, apparently taking yet another incident of incitement against him by the horns in a lively exchange. 

The back-and-forth began with a photo Bennett posted of a meeting he held with school principals in Nazareth. 

Then, a Twitter user by the name of "Asheriko" called him "Hitler" and "scummy," to which Bennett immediately took offense.

"Scum is spelled with one 'm,'" Bennett quipped. "It's my duty as Education Minister to correct you." 

"Asheriko" is infamous for posting photos of several prominent Israeli politicians depicted as Nazis. 

Bennett recently filed a police report over threats to his safety, as well as the safety of Jewish Home party members – but at least one MK brushed his concerns off as "victimization."

"There has never been anyone with the ability to incite and cry at the same time as Naftali Bennett," MK Tamar Zandberg (Meretz) claimed last week. "Jewish Home declares open homophobia and racism and cries at the criticism it receives, as it turns out saying such things have dangerous results."
