We also bring you an interview with the radical leftist, friend of the Supreme Court and celebrity investigative journalist Ilana Dayan who some years back broadcast an “investigation” in which she asserted that an IDF Captain murdered a Palestinian girl and then shot up her body to ensure she was dead. Captain R, as he became known was found innocent of all charges, and it worked out that one of his soldiers, who hated him had made up the entire story.
Captain R sued Dayan and her channel Telad for libel and won in District Court. Dayan’s friends at the Supreme Court overturned the District Court’s decision last week by inventing a new defense for libel. They said that Dayan spoke the “truth of the hour.” That is, at the time, she thought what she was saying was true and so was within her rights to say it.
In her broadcast, she interspersed her claims with footage that had nothing to do with the story, including a video of R and his soldiers celebrating at a party a few weeks before the girl was killed to make it look like they were celebrating her death.
Enjoy the entire program and send it out far and wide.
In a bit of personal news, as Tawil and Ismail mention at the end of the show, I had a baby boy on Monday and will be on maternity leave from the Jerusalem Post for the next three months. (Unless there’s a war or something.)
I assume I’ll be doing some posting on my blog from time to time so keep watching this space and following updates on my Facebook page. Also Latma is not on maternity leave and we will continue to produce our shows every week. So don’t worry.
