Police Shut Down Illegal Arab-Leftist Radio
The station's co-manager, former Meretz MK Mossi Raz, was questioned by police Thursday and the station stopped its Hebrew broadcasts on FM radio shortly afterward. The station's website says it has not been closed down, however, and that it continues to stream its broadcasts on the internet.
MK Danny Danon (Likud) issued a statement expressing pleasure with the closure. He said that it was his request to the Minister of Communications and to the Attorney General two months ago that prompted the investigation.
Journalist Jonathan Dahoh-HaLevy has reported that a regular broadcaster on All for Peace voiced sorrow, in a 2010 broadcast, for the fact that the "Intifada" or terror war had ended.
Dahoh-Halevy added that the Givat Haviva Center is supported by the radical left New Israel Fund, whose support for anti-Zionist NGO's was made public knowledge by the Im Tirtzu grassroots student organization.
