Israeli youth factions have formed Facebook groups calling for the killing of Arabs. Others call for demonstrations in the city of Umm Al-Fahm against Raed Salah's Islamist movement and abused Islam's prophet Mohammed, calling him a "pig."

A group called "Kill all Arabs" has 170 members and raises slogans such as "All Arabs must be killed one by one," "A good Arab is a dead Arab," and "Death to all Arabs the stray animals," Israeli news website walla said Wednesday. Arabs were also referred to as "dogs," it added.

The website said that the Yisrael Beiteinu party's Facebook page advertised the new group. The party is lead by Avigdor Lieberman, Israel's minister of foreign affairs.

Walla also mentioned a Facebook group calling for demonstrations in Umm Al-Fahm against the Islamic Movement whereby it wrote "What a great moment it would be when the Israeli people rise and fight for its right to exist, death to the Arabs, Mohammed is a pig."

Adam Keller, from Israel's Gush Shalom (the Peace Bloc), filed a complaint against Lieberman personally demanding he be investigated for his role and his party's in propagating the racist slurs used by the Facebook group.

Israel's general prosecutor's office refused to investigate Lieberman but agreed to investigate the two racist groups and identify the individuals involved in them.
