Shaked-Arbel c’tee on limiting public incitement holds first meeting

A committee formed by Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked and led by former Supreme Court justice Edna Arbel for limiting public incitement held its first meeting on Sunday.

Shaked had announced the committee’s establishment in July to "fight the phenomenon of the spilling of blood on social media" following the suicide of top police commander Ephraim Bracha after he was harassed on social media by supporters of Rabbi Yoshiyahu Yosef Pinto for turning the rabbi into the authorities.

The committee was also formed following attempts by certain haredi sectors to incite against those haredim choosing to join the IDF, by posting information about them online and social media campaigns against judges.
