Translated from Dutch NOS TV radio:
In Israel, a prominent scholar, who often speaks out against the settlers’ movement, has been wounded by a bomb attack. According to the police, the perpetrators are from extreme Rightist tendencies in Israël.
Professor [Ze’ev] Sternhell was lightly wounded by the attack. He had just returned from abroad and had been threatened repeatedly. This year, he had been awarded the most important prize of Israel, the Israël Prize.
The leftist Meretz party and the Peace Now movement have condemned the attack. They say that Rightist fanatics are threatening democracy in Israël.
From Israeli daily Haaretz:
Jerusalem police on Thursday say they have found fliers offering a monetary reward of over NIS 1 million to anyone who kills members of Peace Now.
