Posted a post on Facebook and received a call from the Shabak

A settler who posted on Facebook against administrative detentions received a call from the Jewish division of the Shabak (Israel's internal security agency) inviting him for a conversation at a police station. Honenu: "Corrupt conduct of the thought police"

A resident of one of the settlements in the Binyamin region recently published several posts calling for the release of the administrative detainees who were arrested following the terrorist attack in Eli. At the beginning of the week, the settler received a phone call from a person who identified themselves as "Noam, an employee of the Prime Minister's Office," who asked to speak with him privately, without people around, and tried to persuade him to meet at the Binyamin Police Station for a "conversation for the benefit of the security of the state."

The settler refused the request and claimed that he does not know the person. In response, the Shabak officer stated that he has information about the settler and will be able to verify whether he is indeed an employee of the Prime Minister's Office.

The settler wondered to the Shabak officer why he doesn't identify himself with his real name and even calls from a blocked number. The settler informed the Shabak officer that in the past he worked in the "Netiv" division in the Prime Minister's Office and that he is familiar with security procedures and how to establish contact even from a private phone. He accused the officer of being from the Jewish Division in the Shabak and trying to recruit him to act against the settlers. In response, the Shabak officer denied being from the Shabak or the police and attempted once again to persuade the settler to meet with him, but the settler refused.

The settler recounted after the conversation: "I immediately understood that I was dealing with a Shabak officer trying to recruit me. I estimate that he approached me because of Facebook posts in which I express clear right-wing positions regarding the Arab enemy. In recent times, I shared posts and calls for the release of the Jewish administrative detainees who were arrested without trial and without evidence. It's time to shut down the entity called the Jewish Division in the Shabak that spends its entire time persecuting settlers and Jews instead of dealing with Arab terrorism."

From the organization 'Honenu' it was stated: "In the Shabak's Thought Division, writing posts against the corrupt conduct of the police constitutes grounds for persecution and threatening conversations. It's good that citizens understand that it's forbidden to engage in any action with them."
