Two Hamas-loving Haaretz reporters arrested in Samaria
Two Hamas-loving Haaretz reporters - Gideon Levy and Alex Levac - were arrested on Monday at the entrance to Tulkarem, which is a 'Palestinian' city in Area A where Israeli citizens are not permitted to enter
(by the Israeli government - the 'Palestinians' would be happy to have lynching targets).
Haaretz itself has blamed the IDF for the incident.
"Their job is to help the vital work of journalists and not sabotage
it under false pretenses, and certainly not to arrest journalists
performing their duties," the newspaper stated Monday night.
Levy responded to the incident, saying that "should call a spade a
spade. It was a false arrest of journalists designed to thwart our work.
For 30 years I have surveyed the Occupation and I will continue even if
they arrest me every week."
The journalists openly rebelled against the IDF upon entering at a
checkpoint, police stated, and "provoked [against IDF officers], spat,
and cursed [at them]." It has now been revealed as well that one or both
of them attacked a high-ranking officer at the scene.
Here's hoping they get some jail time.
