Israel is raging with protest. The prime minister's son has a solution: doxxing its leaders

Updated on August 1, 2020

Bibi Netanyahu's youngest son, Yair, is rarely not making headlines in the Israeli media. His social media is filled with anything controversial opinions to misinformation and fake news. However, this Thursday, Netanyahu crossed a new line: doxxing.
Prime minister Netanyahu has been involved in more controversies than I could possibly count. He is currently under trial concerning, among other things, his alleged acceptance of bribe. He is also under fire from the people due to his government's poor handling of the economic crisis caused by the coronavirus. All in all, many people have lost their trust in Netanyahu (that is, if they had any to begin with), which lead to the rise of "Crime Minister", a movement aiming to bring Netanyahu to justice and end his term of office. The movement has been leading some of the many protests against Netanyahu, gathering mostly near his two houses in Jerusalem and Caesarea. Despite many officials worrying that the protestors are breaking coronavirus safety guidelines, the Supreme Court of Israel (SCI) ruled them legal and allows them to continue.
You see, Yair Netanyahu, Bibi's 29 year old son, lives with his parents, and is seemingly very bothered by the protestors near his home(s). His solution to the issue? Doxxing the leaders of the "Crime Minister" movement on his Twitter.

Trans: Yair Netanyahu: "I welcome everyone to come protest, day and night (the SCI says it's allowed) under these people's homes, who have been organizing all of the anarchy going on in our country for the past couple of weeks."

The self proclaimed "activist" attached one the movement's documents, containing its leader's personal information, to the post.

According to the people whose information Yair published, they've been getting threatening phone calls and messages since the publication of the tweet. One of them even had right-wing Netanyahu supporters show up to his house and protest.

It is important to note, when talking about this doxxing case, that violence against anti-Netanyahu protestors has escalated dramatically in the week before Yair's post. One protestor has been stabbed in the neck, while another was viciously beaten, both thankfully surviving the attacks - among many other reported cases of verbal and physical violence from Netanyahu fans.

UPDATE: One of the movement's founders has filed a request to take Yair Netanyahu to court for harassment. An emergency discussion of his case will take place on Sunday.
