The four Knesset members who currently represent Meretz (a left wing Israeli political party) paid a visit to the city of Hebron this morning, after the Supreme Court (Ba’Gatz) ordered that the city be made accessible again for organized tours. This privilege had been previously stripped from “Breaking the Silence” — a veterans’ organization that aims to draw public attention to the tense Jewish-Arab relations in Hebron — due to security concerns.

And indeed there were security concerns to be dealt with this morning. A wild demonstration by right wing extremists ended when they sprayed boiling water at the Meretz representatives, injuring the party spokesman, a foreign journalist, and a policeman.
