I was interviewed for a segment on Russia Today TV about the Anat Kamm-Uri Blau affair. This is a short version of a long story which ran on TV inside Russia. My full interview is available in three segments here.
One of the things that’s interesting about the interviews is that the father of one of the Palestinians assassinated during Twin Towers says that 500 soldiers participated in the operation. He notes that you don’t come to arrest someone with 500 soldiers. Maan News Agency’s reporting notes that 30 military vehicles were involved. An Israeli friends says this was a battalion-size undertaking. He also emphasizes that no IDF action that is purely meant to detain someone involves something on this scale. This would reinforce Blau’s claim that this was a targeted killing and not what the IDF and Attorney General have claimed.
I will be writing a more detailed post about this later today.
