“We do not forget Riad Hatab, whose taxi was set on fire two months ago in Beit Safafa. A month ago, two more cars were burned in a similar manner, accompanied by ‘price tag’ graffiti [1] and their owners were recognized as victims of hostile acts.

We call upon the State Attorney’s Office to recognize, Riad Hattab as a victim of a hostile act.”

0202 Editor’s notes:
[1] Tag Meir Forum is an organization whose mission is to (as self-described): “educate for tolerance and empathy, and create public events to raise the voice of those committed to democratic values.” ‘Tag Meir’ was coined in response to ‘Tag Makhir’ (‘price tag’, in Hebrew), a small group extreme right-wing settlers that in recent years have performed acts of violence and desecration against Arabs, Christians and minority groups in Israel and the territories.
