Gantz on Israeli Black Panther founder Charlie Biton: He didn’t just pursue justice — he was justice

War cabinet minister Benny Gantz eulogizes the founder of the Israel Black Panthers Charlie Biton, who passed away at the age of 76.

“Charlie didn’t just pursue justice — he was justice,” Gantz writes on X, formerly Twitter. “Even when he encountered enormous difficulties, he never stopped fighting for a more just and equal Israeli society.”

“The protest he led for disadvantaged communities is a milestone in the history of the State of Israel,” he adds. “We will remember the huge heart that left us today. May his memory be a blessing.”
