Ben-Gvir Sues IDF Radio over One-Sided Interview


Nationalist activist Itamar Ben-Gvir has filed suit against IDF Radio (Galei Tzahal) and presenters Razi Barkai and Nurit Kanti over an interview with Dalia Rabin, the daughter of slain Prime Minister Yitzchak Rabin.

Dalia Rabin spoke about a clash between her daughter, Noa Rotman, and Ben-Gvir. The presenters read a response from Ben-Gvir but did not give him air time, leading him to accuse the station of giving an air of authority to Rabin’s statements, which he says were lies.

Ben-Gvir said that, in contrast to what was suggested in the interview, he has repeatedly said he was against Rabin’s murder. However, he said, “Rabin gave weapons to terrorists and as a result entire families were destroyed. I have a right to say that.”
