Senior Israeli banker: Be'er Sheva rampage result of incitement by politicians like Yacimovich
'People should be careful not to incite in such ways, so that tomorrow people don't start shooting bank employees like ducks,' banker says in wake of deadly attack.
"People like Shelly Yacimovich and Eldad Yaniv have been for some time now been engaging in incitement against banks. People should be careful not to incite in such ways, so that tomorrow people don't start shooting bank employees like ducks," said the banker.
While Shelly Yacimovich declined to respond to these remarks, Eldad Yaniv responded in a Facebook post in which he wrote: "Mr. Senior, Your cynical attempt to use a tragic and painful incident to hurl a smoke grenade that would shut up a just and moral public – will not succeed. This attempt will not weaken the struggle against the banks and its executives, who forgo giant loans of the public's money – to Nochi Dankner and his tycoon friends, but torment small lenders, who don't seize Motti Zisser and his tycoon friends' private property when they don't pay their debts, but torment small lenders."
Yaniv went on to say that he would continue to struggle for "equality in the banks' treatment of all their customers, because all people were born equal, and to struggle for the establishment of internet banks, and for the abolishing of the account fees – like in the rest of the world, and for stopping banks from charging onerous interest rates, for stopping the overpaying of bank executives and the giving of excessive pensions to thousands of bank employees. This just and moral struggle will not stop. It will even intensify."
Shabbi Gatanio, CEO of the Organization for Advanced Democracy, responded to the senior banker's comments and said "The blood has yet to dry and senior bankers are already trying to divert the conversation from their forgiving policy regarding the tycoons' massive debts as opposed to their cruel policy towards the underprivileged. This is a vicious attack by the government-financial complex, which is losing its head. For us Eldad Yaniv is a fighting hero."
