Tuesday, December 27, 2022, 14:10 Journalist Yisrael Frey is being investigated over a tweet he posted on his Twitter account that supports Arab terror and legitimizes attacking soldiers. The tweet was posted after a terrorist was apprehended and detained in Yafo. The terrorist admitted under interrogation that he was looking for soldiers in order to injure them.
In September, shortly after the tweet was posted, Honenu Attorney Menashe Yado wrote a letter to the Attorney General, Gali Baharav-Miara, demanding that a criminal investigation be opened against Frey. Yado wrote in his letter to the Attorney General that "calling soldiers 'legitimate targets' acknowledges terror and prepares the ground for acts of terror."
Yado welcomed the investigation and stated, "Frey must be penalized to the full extent of the law. The distorted perceptions that Frey expressed, giving legitimacy to one form or another of terrorism, must be eradicated."
