Legal measures against incitement are a tricky subject, and democracies should be careful not to limit free speech under the pretext of fighting extremism. Still, I find it both ironic and scary that our Attorney General found today ( during one of the most volatile periods in Israel's history, and now that finally countries in Europe - partly influenced by and certainly with encouragement from the US and Israel - are starting to understand the link between ( religiously inspired ) incitement and terrorism, and between verbal and physical violence, and to act against incitement ) to be the perfect moment to say that basically there is no ( proven ) link between religious incitement and one of the worst acts of Jewish terror ever.
