Legal Activist Calls for Prosecuting France 2 for Al-Dura Hoax

Israel should file criminal charges against France 2 following a government report Sunday that the television channel broadcast a film in 200 that falsely portrayed the alleged killing of 12-year-old Mohammed Al-Dura by Israeli soldiers.

Charles Enderlin was bureau chief of France 2 when the Second Intifada, also known as the Oslo War, broke out. He “should never be allowed to practice journalism in Israel again,” said Nitsana Darshan-Leitner, director of Shurat HaDin – Israel Law Center.

“In 2007 we argued at the High Court in Jerusalem that France 2′s credentials be canceled, but the press office cited they had a lack of authority to do so,” she added. “Now that the government has determined we were right, it’s time France 2′s bureau chief be prosecuted. Enderlin’s report became a symbol of the second Intifada and a modern-day blood libel directly resulting in hundreds of Jewish and Arab deaths, only for the purpose of raising France 2′s ratings.

“The French network ignited a still-burning torch of hatred against Israel, with images of al-Dura still being presented in anti-Israel protests in Iran, the Arab world and in Western Europe. Those who are responsible must bear the consequences of their actions in order to avoid the repetition of incidents like this and, moreover, to stop this blood libel once and for all.”

  1. Europeans are allways anti-semitic, they were naziz and now nazislamists.

  2. The extremist charges possible – perhaps even imprisonment – certainly severe financial penalties should be laid against Charles Enderlin, Jamal Al Dura, the father, the Photographer and of course France's Channel 2 TV. There should then be charges laid against every media TV network and newspaper group that published or ran these stories on Prime Time TV or Front Pages without verification of the truth – they should be forced to run the infamous Al Dura Photograph with the word "FRAUD" boldly placed across the photo on Prime Time TV explaining that they were duped by the Fraud whilst the print media should carry the "FRAUD" picture and story on every front page for 5 days – also with an explanation. Perhaps such a harsh ruling by the International Courts will remind the world that Israel doesn't lie whilst the Palestinians do. They should be reminded of "NEVER AGAIN" and what it means. The world needs to understand the lies behind Jenin, Apartheid Israel and the other lies that cause harm to Israel and Jews everywhere. Perhaps it will put an end to the delegitimisation and BDS programs.
