Hundreds protest at Finance Minister Smotrich's home in Samaria

'Thou shalt not be racist,' one protest sign read

Hundreds of protesters demonstrated against the government's judicial reform outside the home of Finance Minister Bezalel Smotrich in the Kedumim settlement in Samaria on Thursday.

Protesters from the Brothers in Arms reservist groups brought signs alluding to the Ten Commandments to the event, which took place outside of the religious minister's home.

'Thou shalt not steal' and 'Thou shalt not covet,' as well as 'Respect the LGBT' and 'Thou shalt not be racist,' the signs read.

Smotrich has received criticism recently for his refusal to release NIS 200 million ($55 million) earmarked for economic development in Arab towns and villages, with opposition members accusing him of racism.
