Slogan Stirs Concern

Far-right Israeli activists put out a bumper sticker threatening Ariel Sharon’s life.

Police sources said Sunday that the distributors of the sticker, which reads, “Sharon: Lily Awaits You,” could be probed for incitement to murder. The slogan refers to Sharon’s wife, Lily, who died in 2000. According to media reports, the outlawed far-right group Kach issued at least 5,000 of the stickers. Security around Sharon has been beefed up in recent months out of concern that he could be assassinated in a bid to defeat his Gaza disengagement plan.

In a related incident, the spokesman of the Yesha settler council, Yehoshua Mor-Yosef, resigned Sunday in what local media described as an ideological dispute. According to reports, Mor-Yosef opposed recent calls by Yesha leaders for civil disobedience en masse when the government moves to evacuate settlements.
