Sami Hawary has filed a lawsuit against the Israel Lands Administration and Moshe Hadif Ltd., a real estate company building a residential project in the city because, he says, it refused to sell him an apartment because he is Arab.  Hawary was told that the project was sold out, yet when a Channel 10 investigator inquired about the same apartment type, she was told they are available.  The salesperson went further and assured the investigator that no Arabs would be “brought in” to the project.

The military reporter for Channel 10 news, Or Heller, had received death threats following the publication of the recording of a conversation between Lt. Colonel Shalom Eisner and Hagit Rhein, mother of Major Benaya Rhein who was killed during the Second Lebanon War, in which Eisner sharply attacked the IDF Chief of Staff. “In the last few days I’ve received death threats,” said Heller, “I’ve had calls and hang-ups, received emails with assorted wishes that I die in one way or another. They call me a Nazi”. Over the last few days there has been a few publications by, among others, the Latma website and the My Israel movement, who launched a viral internet video against him. At the same time, a petition was initialized, asking to expel Heller from his position.
