Reuters Whitewash

Reuters are quick to whitewash any possible PLO Arab involvement in the killing of Judge Azar, despite the fact that investigators are still trying to ascertain who perpetrated the crime.

Israel ‘Sure’ Palestinians Didn’t Kill Judge

Israeli investigators have concluded that a Tel Aviv judge shot dead on Monday was not killed by Palestinian militants who claimed responsibility, Justice Minister Yosef Lapid said.

“What we are quite sure of already is that this does not have a background of terrorism, and that the boasting of this terrorist organization has no basis. This is not true, that is for sure,” Lapid told Israel Radio.

And at the risk of sounding like Yoda, Yosef Lapid statements does not an investigation finding make. And even if these are Lapid’s exact words (which I highly doubt), he has been known to be incredibly wrong.

Meanwhile, someone who may actually have a good idea of where the investigation stands, is not ruling out terrorism as a motive.

Police Chief Shlomo Aharonishky, however, said that he is not discounting the terror option. “At the moment we are not discounting any possibility. This is truly crossing a red line”. He said every effort would be invested in locating the murderer and solving the case as soon as possible.
