Israel on Monday charged a Jewish man with inciting racism and violence in Facebook posts against Arab Israelis and Palestinians, including by calling for the death of a lawmaker, the justice ministry said. Eliyahu Eliav Moalem, 27, of central Israeli city Modiin, had over June and July 2014 written a number of posts calling for "acts of violence and terror against Palestinians and Arab Israelis," the ministry said in a statement. Moalem allegedly called for the abduction and death of firebrand Arab Israeli lawmaker Hanin Zoabi in his posts, visible to his 1,280 Facebook friends and open to the public.
