Watch: Lieberman attacked outside late soldier's home
Upon offering his condolences to the family of Sgt.Yoseph Cohen, who was killed last week in a shooting attack, the former defense minister encounters ultra-Orthodox activists protesting the draft bill; 'Recruiting religious youth is worse than murder,' they shouted.
Former defense minister Avigdor Lieberman was verbally attacked Wednesday night by ultra-Orthodox activists outside the home of Sgt.Yoseph Cohen—the soldier who was killed last week in a shooting attack in the West Bank.

 

 

Protesting Lieberman's support of the IDF draft bill, the activists, who were waiting outside the Cohen family home in Jerusalem, called the former defense minister a "murderer" and compared him to the terrorists behind the attack that claimed the young sergeant's life.

'Recruiting religious youth is worse than murder," one of the activists shouted, in reference to a famous saying by Chazal (Jewish sages of the Mishna, Tosefta and Talmud eras): "whoever causes a person to sin is worse than the one who kills him."

Several local residents, including Cohen's relatives and neighbors, witnessed the attack and tried to calm the protestors.

 

However, within a few seconds, more activists gathered outside Cohen's home. The activists kept shouting at Lieberman while passersby retorted by calling them "disgusting."
