  1. So how come you are able to publish those names? Are you not considered part of the Israeli media, or are you taking a risk, or are you challenging the gag order?

    1. @ Paranam: Only people within the jurisdiction of Israeli law enforcement are subject to the gag order. Since I am outside that jurisdiction I am not bound by Israeli law or the gag order. Israelis who object to this legal charade help me break the gag order.

      But if I ever went to Israel who knows what would happen. The censor once said publicly she’d like to come face to face with me. I assume she wasn’t talking about having coffee at a Tel Aviv cafe.

      1. I apologise for a dumb question Richard, I could have known had I looked up Tikun Olam in Wikipedia.
        Anyway, thanks for informing all of us & keep up the good work.

  2. As Stephen Colbert would say, “You do have someone to start your car in the morning for you, don’t you?”
    Your bravery, Richard, is a grace to the world.

  3. Unfortunately, the attorney general will probably water this down as well, as he is currently doing with the other police recommendations. As far as netanNetany supporters go, this means nothing to them, unless there is actual cash involved. Quid pro quo is meaningless to them at worst, at best expected within the framework of a subject political culture.

  4. The gag order must have expired because the names and faces of everyone implicated are on the front pages of the newspapers here.

      1. What on earth would possess anyone to ask for a 48 hour gag order? So that someone would have a chance to tell Grandma? Seems dumb.

        1. @ Pea: the only thing I can think of is that the police worry that one of the arrestees or their colleagues or family might do something to compromise the investigation like destroy evidence, conspire to coordinate their testimony, etc. They may’ve feared someone would be tipped off. But hey, I don’t want to try to explain or defend actions which I feel are antiquated & anti-transparent.
