Yair Netanyahu exchanges insults with Peace Now
The prime minister's son continues to stir up trouble on social media as he calls Peace Now NGO 'murderers' and tells them to 'go to hell' on Twitter.

Yair Netanyahu, the prime minister's son, went on a rampage on social media this week as he clashed with the left-wing Peace Now NGO on Twitter, accusing the activist group of anti-Semitism.

 

 

The bitter exchange began Tuesday afternoon after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's son slammed left-wing supports.

"Leftists worship generals and then call us fascists?!" he wrote on Twitter, referring to the growing popularity of former IDF chief Benny Gantz, who is running in the April 9 elections at the head of the Israel Resilience Party.

Recently, the prime minister's son has been posing controversial content on social media. Last month, Facebook blocked his account for 24 hours after he criticized the company's content filtering policy in a Facebook post.

 

Last May, following his father's harsh verbal exchange with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, Yair posted an image of Turkey's flag alongside the caption "Fuck Turkey" on his Instagram account.

 

He also condemned Left-wing supports on his Facebook page, calling them "Bolsheviks" who deem the right as "fascists" and "Nazis."

In October 2018, he posted a caricature on his Facebook page, titled "The food chain." The image depicts Hungarian-Jewish billionaire George Soros followed by a lizard-man and another figure that appears to resemble a Nazi caricatures. Further down the food chain is former prime minister Ehud Barak dangling a bill before two organizers of the weekly government corruption protests.

 

A few months later, the premier's son shared an image of Deputy Attorney General Dina Zilber on his Facebook page. The image depicted the attorney as a character from a horror film splashed on a film poster.

 

Meanwhile, the prime minister's son is also busy handling a libel suit he filed against Molad: The Center for the Renewal of Israeli Democracy, a progressive Israeli think-tank, which fired back with a counter suit.
