The attention-hungry head of the extremist anti-assimilationist group Lehava, formed to prevent illegitimate (by religious Jewish law) marriage between Jews and Arabs, recently outraged Israeli anti-racism activists with controversial statements on Kooker, an ultra-Orthodox Jewish website.
"Christmas has no place in the Holy Land," Gopstein wrote in an op-ed.
"We must remove the vampires before they drink our blood once again," he declared.
"The mission of those vampires and bloodsuckers remains," Gopstein claimed in his opinion piece, adding that, "If Jews cannot be killed, they can be converted."
Prior to his call for banning Christmas, the extremist was arrested and criticized for urging citizens to take drastic action to fight "enemies."
"Disgust that was the only thing that saved us from the dark days in Europe has disappeared with the 'good life' of the democratic age," he opined, before again calling for a fight with the "corrupt phenomenon in the best tradition of Judaism."
Several organizations including The Israel Movement for Reform and Progressive Judaism, have called on the attorney general and police to investigate, saying that the blustering blabbermouth's hate speech insults religious feelings of Christians, a behavior prohibited by law.
The State Prosecutor's Office said it received a public letter but no decision on the Lehava case has yet been made.
