If you challenge Netanyahu, your fate will be similar to that of Yitzhak Rabin,' man writes on journalist turned politician's Facebook page
"Believe me, if I see you I'll want to kill you. You are an anti-Semitic Israel hater," a man who identified himself as "Itzik Chen" wrote on Yair Lapid's Facebook page Tuesday evening.
"You are a bastard and a son of a bastard, and you are hopeless. Maybe if you were a regular bastard you could have changed, but with a rotten and dirty father such as yours – there is no hope for you. You deserve to die, and he who carries it out will be blessed," the man wrote.
The message was removed from Lapid's webpage.
Since announcing that he was leaving his news anchorman position on Channel 2 and entering politics, Lapid has used his Facebook page to relay messages to the press and the general public.
