The end of the Chardak campaign?

Is the "Chardak" campaign over?

After a long break, they recently came out with another edition of their Chardak publications, but since then they seem to have disappeared again.

Perhaps this is why. Last week a Jerusalem court order caricaturist Avishai Chen to issue an apology that will be distributed among all the army units in which Haredi soldiers serve. It has been determined that Avishai Chen is the caricaturist of the chardak campaign.

A Haredi soldier, Menachem Shtauber, sued Chen for 30,000NIS for incitement against him, a Haredi soldier, and hundreds of other Haredi soldiers. Shtauber had been physically attacked as a result fo the chardak campaign.

Chen denies responsibility, saying he was simply hired to draw images that were not supposed to be disparaging towards any soldiers. Chen claims after he gave in the drawings they were changed and publicized without his knowledge. He says that when he discovered his drawings had been altered he demanded that they no longer be publicized, but his demand was ignored.

In addition to the apology, the court also ordered that Chen transfer ownership of the images to Shtauber so that Shtauber can sue in the future anyone who makes use of them without his permission.

As part of the decision they should have forced him to identify and testify against the person who is actually behind the campaign. And whoever that guy is, he should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law for incitement to violence against Israeli soldiers.
