Curses

In Israel, the center rules, and a society with a strong center does not tolerate violence from its extremist elements. As a result, extremists have to try different tactics:
Far-right activists instigated a pulsa denura - Aramaic for 'lashes of fire' - death curse against Prime Minister Ariel Sharon last Thursday night in an effort to thwart the upcoming disengagement plan...
