Low Profile Hero

Philippe Karsenty visits with Phyllis Chesler. Karsenty is the media analyst who was sued by France 2 TV for defamation for telling the truth about the Al Dura hoax. Seven years after the events at Netzarim Junction, a French court ordered the government-owned station to turn over the 27 minutes of footage from which the original 59-second clip was compiled. Karsenty awaits vindication, and shuns the hero tag that Chesler thinks he deserves.

"It is important to stand up for the truth, no matter the cost. That should not make you a hero."

Lots of Al Dura links here.
