Download PDF for this date

Israeli police have launched an investigation into the distribution of videotapes containing songs and skits praising Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin’s assassin, Yigal Amir.

The tapes, which have been distributed in Jewish communities in the West Bank, also include material praising right-wing activists who have killed Arabs, including Baruch Goldstein, who gunned down 29 Moslem worshippers at the Tomb of the Patriarchs in Hebron three years ago.
