Arad sues Hendel for defamation
Hendel accused of saying Arad's job was to make sure the nation hates settlers more than terrorists.
Media consultant Eyal Arad is filing a NIS 1 million libel suit against MK Zvi Hendel (National Union-National Religious Party) for accusing him of saying that Arad's job was to make sure the nation hates settlers more than terrorists. Arad said Hendel's comments, which he made during a news conference last month, are "false and harmful defamatory words," and that Hendel should resign from the Knesset. Arad maintains that Hendel's remarks were meant to damage him personally and spur quarrels.
