Meir Kahane's grandson Ettinger taken to custody

Remember the Jewish terrorist Meir Kahane? He was an Israeli-American far-right extremist who wanted to wipe out all Palestinians. He has a grandson Meir Ettinger, who seemingly wants to surpass his grandpa's hostility towards the indigenous Palestinians. 


He has been instrumental in the establishment of illegal outposts in the West Bank in recent years has been on the Shin Bet’s radar for some time and security authorities accuse him of leading a series of violent attacks against Palestinians.
In late July, Channel 10 aired a report citing security sources that claimed Ettinger was the head of an “underground cell” that carries out attacks against Muslim and Christian targets and publishes instructions on how to execute so-called “price-tag” attacks.
The Shin Bet had linked Ettinger to the arson attack on the Church of the Multiplication of the Loaves and Fishes last month, Haaretz reported. Last Monday, Meir Kahane was arrested on Monday in connection to extremist activity, the Shin Bet security agency said. 

You may recall the deadly Molotov cocktail attack in the Palestinian village of Duma last Friday, in which a Palestinian toddler was killed and which authorities suspect was perpetrated by Jewish extremists, and the stabbing attack the previous day at the Jerusalem Pride Parade in which an Israeli teenager died after succumbing to wounds sustained by an ultra-Orthodox attacker. Five other people were also wounded in the incident.


In 2013, Ettinger wrote a document entitled “the rebel manifesto” which calls to bring down the Israeli leadership.
“The idea of the rebellion is very simple. Israel has many weak points, many issues which it handles by walking on eggshells so as to not attract attention. What we’re going to do is simply fire up these powder kegs,” he wrote in the document.
“The aim is to bring down the state, to bring down its structure and its ability to control, and to build a new system. To do it, we must act outside the rules of the state we seek to bring down,” Ettinger wrote.
“We must break the status-quo. In doing so, we must differentiate between ‘breaking’ the state, an act that would insufficiently shed light on the remains and between ‘taking it apart’ which is the same but with care, and with attention. At the end of the day, the goal is to shake up the foundations of the state until we have a situation in which Jews must decide whether they are are part of the revolution or part of the repression [of the rebellion],” he went on.
