Rabbi Meir Kahane’s Grandson And Second Detained Right-Wing Extremist Go On Hunger Strikes

Two right-wing Jewish extremists – one of them a grandson of the assassinated right-wing extremist Rabbi Meir Kahane – are now on hunger strikes to protest their administrative detention, the Times of Israel reported.
Kahane’s grandson Meir Ettinger went on a hunger strike several days ago; Ettinger’s colleague Eviatar Slonim joined that hunger strike yesterday. Both men were arrested by the Shin Bet in August and put into administrative detention with the approval of the attorney general and court that can last as long as six months without trial or even being charged with a crime. That six-month period can then be renewed indefinitely if a court allows it.
Ettinger is believed to be the head of a Jewish terrorist group that seeks to overthow the government and install a religious monarchy. Slonim is purportedly one of that terror group’s chief members.
Ettinger’s terror group allegedly played a role in the Douma (Duma) arson-murders that killed a Palestinian baby and his sleeping parents last July. It also allegedly tried to burn down the Church of the Multiplication of the Loaves and Fishes on the Sea of Galilee last year.
