Labor head Merav Michaeli, whose staff was attacked in the Hatikva market in Tel Aviv Sunday, accused Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of incitement and turning a blind eye to violence.
"Netanyahu, how long will you remain silent to the violence of your thugs? What else needs to happen for you to take responsibility?" Michaeli said.
"After your thugs finished beating protesters at intersections, they spat at my spokeswoman, beat my photographer and cursed women and members of the gay community. Violence is eroding the foundations of our democracy. You have remained silent in the face of this violence against [Prime Minister Yitzhak] Rabin, and we all know and know how that ended."
