Lehava, Bentzi Gopstein, and another wedding of hate

On December 23, part of a video was shown on Israeli television of a recent wedding between two well-known members of the far right in Israel. The video showed dancing and singing. The songs were songs of revenge and they were dancing with weapons in their hands: knives, automatic weapons, and Molotov cocktails. They were part of the same group of hilltop youth from whom came those accused of murdering the Dawabshe family. The same day, there was a demonstration in Tel Aviv by other hilltop youth against the arrest and questioning of the suspects in the murders.

But apparently this was not the only time songs of revenge were sung at a wedding. Below is a clip from Israel television, from 2013, showing a very similar wedding scene. The bride is the daughter of Benzi Gopstein, the leader of Lehava, the fascist group that protests at weddings between Arabs and Jews and also hangs out in the center of Jerusalem at night in order to beat up Arabs. The clip is in Hebrew with English subtitles. It's very disturbing.

And here is another video about Bentzi Gopstein and Lehava, demonstrating more of their racist behavior.
