ALL CHARGES AGAINST RABBI ENGEL DROPPED!
As dedicated and long-time readers will recall, the main motivation behind the creation of our AJN Watch blog 12 months ago was the appalling front page poster in the AJN regarding the allegations made against Adelaide’s Rabbi Engel. That despicable almost Stuermer-style depiction stunned even those readers who were inured to and hardened against the anti-religious bias of the Jewish News.
Today we have received the news that Boruch Hashem all charges against him have been dropped and Rabbi Engel has publicly been vindicated in relentlessly and stubbornly maintaining his innocence.
All praise to his supporting defence team and to all who stood by him.
The question on many lips will of course be, how will the AJN report this outcome?
Will the dropping of charges also be worthy of a full front page?
