Israeli Police Question Extremist for Allegedly Threatening Premier
Israeli police began an inquiry late Monday against a right-wing extremist militant who allegedly issued death threats against Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak, reported The Jerusalem Post, quoting a police source.
"If Barak tells the troops to evacuate the settlers by force, he will have their blood on his head," said Tiran Polak, one of the leaders of the banned anti-Arab racist Kach movement on Israel's second television channel.
After his remarks, police summoned him for questioning, said the daily.
On Sunday, the head of the internal security service, Shin Beth, Avraham Dichter, warned of threats of attacks by right-wing extremists against Barak and Palestinian President Yasser Arafat, said the daily - Albawaba.com
