Samaria, Binyamin Residents to Hamodia: Apologize!


Chairmen Benny Katzover and Itzik Shadmi of the Shomron (Samaria) and Binyamin Residents' Committees sent a letter to the editorial staff of the newspaper Hamodia on Thursday, demanding an apology for an article which, they claimed, contained slander and inaccuracies regarding this week's events. In their letter, the committees say if it was a case of another media outlet, they would be filing suit, but since the staff represents the hareidi-religous public, which personally knows what media libel is, it was settling for an apology.

The letter demands that an upcoming edition include "an extended correction that presents the facts as they are and won't defame an entire public."
