2 haredim arrested over pics depicting J'lem police chief as Hitler

Two ultra-Orthodox men from Beit Shemesh were arrested Wednesday morning on suspicion of distributing flyers depicting Jerusalem police chief Niso Shaham as Adolf Hitler.

 

The suspects, aged 26 and 55, were arrested by investigators from the Serious National and International Crimes Unit.

One of the flyers, which were published online, depicts Shaham wearing a Nazi uniform with a caption reading "Freshly imported from Berlin" and "Adolf Niso Shaham is a murderer." Additional text read “We made it through Hitler, and we will make it through his successor" and expressed hope that Shaham meet the same fate as the Nazi dictator.

A second poster used what by now has become an iconic image of a haredi boy with a yellow star, meshed with a picture of a Jewish boy taken during the Holocaust, with a caption reading "In those days, in this time: European Jews under Nazi occupation in 1940 – Jerusalem Jews under the tyrant Shaham's occupation in 2012."

 

The flyers were published on Monday, presumably as part of the haredi protest over what some religious elements called the "community's persecution."

 

On Tuesday Internal Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitch expressed his shock over the release of images, saying "it's inconceivable that such heinous acts would be carried out in the Jewish state.

 

"We will not allow such despicable behavior towards any member on the Israel Police. I am appalled by this use of the Holocaust. The police will not rest until the perpetrators are caught," he said.

 

As far as the police know the posters had limited online release and it is unknown whether actual copies were printed or distributed.
