Tuvia Grossman, then and now

The Jerusalem Post notes the aliyah of Tuvia Grossman, who became an unwitting symbol of media bias in 2002. After being beaten by a gang of Palestinians near an eastern Jerusalem gas station, an AP photo caption described the American student as a Palestinian beaten by the Israeli soldier on the Temple Mount. The caption outraged Israelis, galvanizing efforts to fight media bias.

Grossman, now 25, arrives in Israel today with Nefesh B’Nefesh. He recently completed his law degree and will work as a legal intern in Tel Aviv. Read more about the Grossman family’s fight with the media and the continued Arab abuse of HonestReporting’s ‘photo that started it all’.
