Itim and Ha'aretz report:
Jerusalem Magistrate's Court remanded two Jewish men on Tuesday suspected of carrying out racially-motivated attacks against Arabs in the Shmuel Hanavi neighborhood last Wednesday.
Yonathan Yosef, 26, the grandson of Shas party's spiritual leader, Rabbi Ovadia Yosef, and his friend, Moshe Haim Sharaz, 20, are accused of throwing stones and puncturing the tires of Arab-owned cars.
The two are also suspected of disrupting the peace by setting up road blocks and setting tires ablaze.
"After reading the indictments I have concluded that there is just cause to keep the suspects in custody until legal proceedings end," Magistrate's Court Judge Moshe Baram said.
I wonder if this is the son of Rabbi
David Ya'akov Yosef, who is a follower of Chabad?
UPDATE: A reader confirms that Rabbi Ya'akov Yosef, who became a follower of Chabad and is estranged from his father, is reported to be close to Rabbi Mordechai Eliyahu and is the father of Yonathan Yosef. Yonathan Yosef was educated in Chabad and in Rabbi Meir Kahane's yeshiva in Tapuach.
