Goldman in Haaretz

In Haaretz, Lisa Goldman respondes to her investigation:

Why us – and why now?
By Lisa Goldman

During the second week of November, I was interrogated, “under caution,” by the International and Serious Crimes Unit (ISCU) of the Israel Police. Four months after I had reported about my trips to Lebanon for Channel 10 TV news and “Time Out Tel Aviv,” I was being accused of endangering Israeli security.

I was accused of violating the Law to Prevent Infiltration, a 1954 regulation intended to prevent infiltration from Arab states. I had never heard of the law, which was later amended to forbid Israeli citizens from traveling to enemy states; nor had any of my Israeli friends and colleagues – although many of them have traveled to enemy countries on their foreign passports, as I did using my Canadian passport. The police told me I could face a four-year jail sentence if convicted.
