Thursday, December 31, 2020, 9:59 The GSS threatened a friend of Ahuvia Sandak, z”l, who participated in demonstrations protesting the Central Unit of the Yehuda and Shomron Police taking place throughout Israel in response to the death of the youth in a police car chase on December 21, 2020. The friend is a Shomron resident, married and has several children. On the day after the friend protested opposite the home of a detective from the Central Unit of Yehuda and Shomron Police who was involved with the accident in which Ahuvia was killed, he came to the shiva at the Sandak family’s home to console the family. As he was sitting with the mourners, a GSS agent phoned him. He disconnected the call and then immediately received threatening text messages from the same GSS agent. One of the messages: “It’s me again! I expected to receive a greeting from you upon my arrival, but apparently you’re still angry about our mutual past. As with our accepted practice in the past, I have my eyes wide open on you 24/7. For every false step/act of defiance/violent activity in which you take part, there will be a significant response from me (and you know that I am not all talk), so don’t even try! Today you have a lot to lose in life. So for the sake of your family and for your own sake, take care and beware! “Roni”” Honenu Attorney Moshe Poleski sharply criticized the threat and said “This is another example of persecution of hilltop youth. It is unacceptable that the General Security Service chases protest activists. Someone who participates in a protest in the evening should not find himself threatened the following morning by a GSS agent. This is against the law and against all logic in a democratic country. “The GSS must understand that they are the security service of a democratic country, and also right-wing activists have freedom of protest, freedom of thought, and the right to criticize the actions of the government.”
