Mother of Fallen Soldier: Time to Honor the Fallen


Hagit Rein, mother of Benaya Rein who died in the Second Lebanon War in 2006, spoke to Arutz Sheva on Sunday, several hours after Channel 10 News correspondent Or Heller apologized to her for airing a conversation between her and Lt. Col. Shalom Eisner.

Rein refused to talk about Heller and said instead, “Now, as Memorial Day approaches, it's time to think about the fallen and honor them. I educated my children to tell only the truth, even if you pay a high price. Benaya paid a price for telling the truth, and I was proud of him.”
