Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu asked the police Monday to immediately investigate death threats posted on social media against him and his family.

A Facebook user called “Tzvika Sabag” wrote a post saying, “Israel Police, prepare to direct traffic for the funerals of Benjamin, Sarah and Yair Netanyahu. Thank you.”

The biographical line under Sabag’s name says that he “has a deathly hatred” of the three “and all who collaborate with them.”

This was the second time in just a few days that Sabag talked of the death of the prime minister. In advance of the anniversary on Monday of the 1995 assassination of then-prime minister Yitzhak Rabin, Sabag directly incited to murder, writing: “If there is one conclusion I reached on the eve of the anniversary, it is that Bibi should get a bullet in the head!”

Sabag’s profile shows a picture of the prime minister’s face with a large noose in front. The poster had been made as a homework exercise by a student in the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design in 2016. She had been briefly questioned by police at the time for incitement and then released. Sabag had apparently found it online.
