The flier offered to pay “anyone who causes the death of one of the people of Sodom and Gemorrah.” The flier also encouraged people to use homemade firebombs and even instructed them how to make the bombs. The Jerusalem Municipality and Knesset Members called on the police to open a criminal investigation on the distributors on charges of incitement to violence as they condemned the flier.
