Yedioth Ahronoth journalist Yair Netanyahu: "I got carried away, I agonize over it. Apologize, and apologize again" - Voila! Barangay


Yedioth Ahronoth journalist Ra'anan Shaked to Yair Netanyahu: "I got carried away, I'm agonizing over it. I apologize, and I apologize again"

What made Yedioth Ahronoth journalist Raanan Shaked apologize so categorically for a statement against Prime Minister Yair Netanyahu's son?

This week, Shaked was interviewed for the first time on Channel 14 on Arel Segal's show, where he talked, among other things, about Yair Netanyahu's statement on Radio Gali Israel last week.

Netanyahu Jr. said, among other things, that the senior prosecutors and the police "stitched up an innocent man, who happens to be the prime minister chosen by the Israeli people," and therefore they should be punished for treason." He also added that "those responsible should not be fired, they should stand trial and go to prison Because there are offenses here by senior officials in the prosecutor's office and the police who were involved, also in the media by the way."

The prime minister and Likud chairman refused to comment on his son's words.

After his words were published, Netanyahu accused the media of character assassination, and wrote on Twitter that he did not call for harming anyone, but tried to emphasize the "seriousness of the criminal offenses committed by the case-sewers according to the Israeli law book."

On Segal's show at the beginning of the week, Shaked repeated what he said and explained that Netanyahu "called for the murder of the prosecutor's office. If this is not incitement, I don't know what is incitement," he added.


But last night, Segal's show, this time without Shaked, brought Shaked's apology for the things.

"In the heat of the debate yesterday, I made a mistake in quoting Yair Netanyahu and attributed to him things that were far from what he actually said. I apologize for that, and of course that's not what I meant - but as happens sometimes, I got carried away in my words and did not formulate myself properly, and it has tormented me ever since. So again, I apologize." said Segal, who read the apology on his behalf.

Shaked, where did this apology come from?

It looks like a gun has been held to your temple in the form of a threatening letter in a lawsuit.

Shaked: "Absolutely not. I apologized because I saw it later and thought that this sentence, as if he called for murdering them, was very far from the truth, and I would not want my words to be distorted in such a way. I asked to apologize without anyone saying anything to me at all (and of course I did not hear from him or on whose behalf)".

In this context, it should be noted that today (Tuesday) journalist Avishai Greenzeig published that Yair Netanyahu's renewed request to overturn the verdict against him, requiring him to pay hundreds of thousands of shekels in damages to former editor of the Walla website Avi Alkalai, was rejected.

The request was submitted after the Supreme Court rejected two appeals filed by Yair Netanyahu on the same issue.

Justice of the Peace Court Raz Navon wrote: "This court does not sit as an appeals court over the Peace Court, the District Court and the Supreme Court."
