Nechama Rivlin, wife to President Reuven Rivlin, was issued a personal body guard some two weeks ago, due to alleged incitement to violence against her husband on social media.

This is the first time Nechama Rivlin has been issued her own security since her husband became Israel’s president. Up to this point, she insistently opposed altering her life over security concerns.

Hagai Amir, brother of Yitzhak Rabin’s assassin Yigal Amir, was arrested last week on suspicion of incitement against Rivlin. “Rivlin is a sycophantic politican, ” Amir said in a Facebook post.

In the past few months, the president has been absorbing attacks on the internet, especially after he expressed his feelings that “members of my people chose terror” in the arson attack in which several members of the Arab Dawabsheh family, including 18-month-old Ali, were killed. Since then, Rivlin’s Facebook page has been filled with hostile comments, including some threats.
