Former Israeli late-night comedy show host Assaf Harel is joining Haaretz with new monologues in May. Harel’s final monologue on his show "Good Night With Asaf Harel” was a searing indictment of Israeli government's policy that went viral on social media.

In the video, Harel castigates Israelis for ignoring the occupation and claims that Israel is an apartheid state.

"Good Night," which was aired by Channel 10, was one of Israel's most controversial television shows on mainstream television in recent years. In one instance, the show was fined after Harel ridiculed Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for exploiting his brother's death for political gain.
