Video: Ten Years Later--Tuvia Grossman Reunited With Israeli Soldier Who Saved Him From The Arab Mob

HonestReporting reunites Tuvia Grossman with Gidon Tzefadi, the Druze Jerusalem Border Police commander, who helped him escape the Arab mob that was trying to kill him.

On September 30, 2000, The New York Times, Associated Press and other major media outlets published a photo of a young man -- bloodied and battered -- crouching beneath a club-wielding Israeli policeman. The caption identified him as a Palestinian victim of Israeli brutality -- with the clear implication that the Israeli soldier was the one who beat him.

That young man was, in fact, Tuvia Grossman, a Jewish student from Chicago, who was beaten within inches of his life before being rescued by the Israeli border policeman in the photo.

The resulting outrage generated by the gross distortion of the photo "launched" HonestReporting.
Here is the video of Tuvia Grossman and the soldier being reunited:
