Haaretz Must Apologize for Linking Border Police, Murder


The left-wing newspaper Haaretz and writer Gideon Levy in particular have been ordered to apologize for an article in which Levy linked a murder to the Border Police, Haaretz reports. Levy suggested that a killer who formerly served in the Border Police had learned within its ranks that murdering innocents is acceptable. He also linked alleged violence within the Border Police ranks to officers’ ethnicity. The Israel’s Press Council’s ethics court ordered the apology following a complaint from the Israel Police.
