Peace Now Ordered to Pay and Apologize for Samaria Lie

Kislev 14, 5769, 11 December 08 08:33

( Judge Yechezkel Barclay Jerusalem Magistrates Court ruled Thursday that the Peace Now organization and activists Hagit Ofran and Dror Atkis must pay "the Fund for Redeeming the Land" 20,000 shekels plus tax and issue a public apology for a false report involving the Samaria town of Revava published two years ago. In the report, titled "A sin leads to another sin," (Aveira goreret aveira in Hebrew), Peace Now argued that most Jewish towns in Judea and Samaria were built on land stolen from local Arabs. Among other things, the report said 71.15 percent of the land on which Revava was built was stolen from Arabs.

The fund, which legally owns 100 percent of the territory on which Revava is built, sued for slander after the authors agreed to change the report to say 22 percent of the land was stolen and refused to apologize. Under the ruling, the group's apology must be published in both Maariv and Haaretz.
