Israeli police have released a Jewish extremist that was held in administrative detention for almost 10 months on suspicion of playing a leading role in a terrorist group targeting Palestinians.

Far-right activist Meir Ettinger was released without being charged on Wednesday, although he is still under heavy restrictions, local media reported.

He was initially taken into custody in August of last year for allegedly taking part in an arson attack in the West Bank that killed an 18-month-old boy when he and his parents were burnt alive.

Several extremists were arrested at the time, two of which were eventually charged with the arson.

Israels internal security agency, the Shin Bet, didnt elaborate on the reason for Ettingers release.

The accused arsonist has been banned from Jerusalem and the town of Yad Binyamin for six months and the regions of Judea and Samaria for a year. He will also be subject to a night curfew and must refrain from contacting 92 people on a list of far-right activists.

Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon had issued an order for his detention for involvement and activity in a Jewish extremist organization and allegedly posing threat to public security.

Ettinger, whom Shin Bet regards as one of the most dangerous far-right activists, is the grandson of US-born Rabbi Meir Kahane a notorious Jewish extremist. He is believed to be one of the leaders of Israels hilltop youth, a group that attacks Palestinian, Christian, and Israeli targets and resists soldiers who attempt to remove Israeli West Bank settlers, according to the Times of Israel.

Other reports say Ettinger is the head of a religious group called Revolt, which kindles hatred between Arabs and Jews with the aim of destroying any chance for a secular Israel.
Jamal Dajani, a spokesman for the Palestinian government, said that Ettinger will be now allowed to roam free and put Palestinian lives in danger.

Sephardic Chief Rabbi Yitzhak Yosef has faced a public backlash after saying that according to Jewish law some non-Jews should be forbidden to live in Israel.
According to Jewish law, its forbidden for a non-Jew to live in the Land of Israel unless he has accepted the seven Noahide laws, Rabbi Yosef said during his weekly Saturday lecture on March 26.

Non-Jews who fail to live by the seven Noahide laws should be expelled to Saudi Arabia, he added.

If hes not willing to accept one of them, [which is] not to commit suicide, if hes not willing to accept this, you send him to Saudi Arabia, Yosef said.

The seven Laws of Noah include prohibitions against idolatry, blaspheming God, murder, illicit sexual relations, stealing and eating a limb of a live animal. It also prescribes the establishment of a legal system that would ensure obedience to the law.

If a non-Jew stays in Israel, he has to serve the Jews, the Rabbi said.

Who will be the servers? Who will be our assistants? Therefore, we leave them here in the land, he said.

However, following a wave public outrage, Yosef had to backtrack on his comments. He explained that his words had nothing to do with todays world as he had been referring to the days of the messiah.

These laws are theoretical, [and] refer to fulfilling the seven Noahide Laws in the days of the messiah, and have no connection to the present day, he wrote, adding that he has always adopted a peaceful and embracing path.

Its clear that theres no law in our time, God forbid, to expel non-Jews from Israel, he concluded.

This is not the first time Chief Rabbi Yosef has found himself in hot water over his comments. Earlier this month he said that Israelis should not be afraid to kill terrorists armed with knives.
