The Tel Aviv District Police arrested a left-wing activist-artist who uploaded a video to the Internet in which she can be seen defecating on an Israeli flag while Israel's national anthem, Hatikva, plays in the background.
According to the police, the woman was arrested after she attacked officers who sought to question her. She will be brought before a judge on Monday, and the proceeding will likely focus on questions relating to freedom of speech.
The police received the video, in which the woman's face can be clearly seen, over the weekend. The district commander, Maj. Gen. Bentzi Sau, described the video as "extremely vulgar" and ordered an investigation of the young woman on suspicion of damaging the symbols of power and the state flag.
