Kahane Family Sues as Radio Ads Pulled over Peace Now Pressure
Rabbi Baruch Kahane, the son of murdered Rabbi Meir Kahane, has filed a suit against the Broadcast Authority over its decision to pull apolitical advertisements inviting the public to a memorial ceremony. The Broadcast Authority is accused of breech of contract.
Several weeks before a memorial for Rabbi Kahane, the family signed an agreement with the Broadcast Authority to air 20 ads regarding the memorial. Broadcast Authority officials approved the wording of the ads, which included only practical information.
