When security trumps justice
By Yair Nevo
Ze'ev Braude had his 15 minutes of fame last December, when he was captured on video shooting at two unarmed Palestinians in Hebron during an argument. The images of Braude, 52, of Kiryat Arba, were shown repeatedly on television in Israel and abroad, as a symbol of settlers' aggressiveness toward their neighbors. But last week, far from the spotlight, the State Prosecutor's Office chose to cancel the lawsuit against Braude after the High Court of Justice forced the prosecutor to give the defendant sensitive information.
