Radio correspondent suspended after blaming terror on right-wing lawmaker

"Galei Tzahal" reporter Hadas Shtaif suspended after suggesting that Ben-Gvir’s demand to be appointed Public Security Minister was linked to twin bombing attacks in Jerusalem.

A veteran journalist for Israel’s army radio was suspended from reporting on Wednesday morning’s double terror bombings in Jerusalem after she suggested that the likely appointment of a right-wing lawmaker as Public Security Minister was somehow to blame for the attacks.

Hadas Shtaif, a correspondent for Galei Tzahal, claimed on the air Wednesday morning that Otzma Yehudit faction chief MK Itamar Ben-Gvir’s demand in coalition talks with the Likud that he be appointed Public Security Ministry was “impossible to separate” from the terrorist bombings in the capital.

Someone beat her with an ugly stick. So her face and soul are the same.

By falsely implying the bombings are connected, she put Knesset leaders, Likud specifically, in danger. Free speech does not include irresponsible, dangerous comments that put people in harms way.
