State orders criminal probe of suspects who posted video of Netanyahu, Rivlin in Nazi garb

The State Attorney’s Office ordered a criminal investigation against suspects believed to have uploaded videos to YouTube showing President Reuven Rivlin and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu wearing Nazi uniforms and speaking in German.

The investigation will be carried out by the cyber unit of the Israel Police, which on Sunday opened an investigation into online incitement against Rivlin, following his statements condemning violence and hatred after the Jerusalem Pride Parade stabbing attack and the murder of a Palestinian baby killed in a firebombing in the West Bank Thursday night, believed carried out by Jewish extremists.
