Sugar 5948888, an activist on the Internet, said in a message to him: “Yair Lapid, I hope you die of cancer today. You are just like Hitler, and you will receive a bullet from me or someone else.”
He also mentioned that his wife, the mother of a son and a daughter, a former photojournalist, Lihi Lapid, 53, also received a message from an Israeli using the name Sophie-Ya on her social media accounts, in which she said: “You and Yair deserve a blow and a punishment from God.” More than your daughter Yael.. I hope that God will take revenge on you and her with more blows and punishment.”
Lapid commented on what he read of the messages, saying, “The danger is not only that they will kill more politicians, it is frightening to hear this, because it does not surprise anyone, but this will not stop there.

A lot of this begins here, in this building. The political discourse must change. It is possible Having a heated discussion, you can disagree, but you can’t stand in the session and shout insults, threats and personal insults at the lowest level.”
