Knesset Praises Doctor Who Stood Up to Al-Dura Hoax


Members of Knesset held a special reception on Wednesday for Dr. Yehuda David. The Israeli surgeon was acquitted of libel charges in a French court last week. He was sued by the father of Mohammed Al-Dura, the Arab boy who was falsely thought to have been shot to death in his father's arms by Israel Defense Force soldiers. Dr. David proved that the father lied about having been wounded by IDF gunfire. 

He was congratulated at the Knesset by MK Aryeh Eldad, MK Zevulun Orlev, MK Nachman Shai, MK Haim Amsalem, MK Uri Orbach, MK Uri Ariel, Minister Daniel Hershkowitz and others.
