Protester throws pie in Communication Minister Rivlin's face


By Zvi Zrahiya and Baruch Kra, Ha'aretz Correspondents


Communications Minister Reuven (Ruby) Rivlin faced a different kind
of political opposition on Wednesday than he's accustomed to in the
Knesset -- a pie in the face.


The veteran Likud MK was struck by a pie thrown by an activist who
said she did it to protest Rivlin's support of cable companies.


Jerusalem police detained three members of the "Indymedia" group
for questioning, among them, Gal Arbel, who is suspected of throwing
the cream pie at Rivlin.


Attached to the pie was a pamphelet entitled "Release from the cable
companies."


The three were invited to a discussion of the Knesset Economics
Committee by Meretz MKs Eilan Gillon and Naomi Chazan. Shlomo
Yoel, one of the group's members, said Tuesday that the group
wanted to raise the issue of problems with a new communications
law.
