An Israeli settler couple whose 13-year-old son was murdered by a Palestinian was interviewed by Brian Williams in 2005 and they aren’t happy about what he did.
Williams came the Mandells’ home in 2004 and wanted to see the settler family shoot their gun.
“I was in total shock because it was actually a polemic about the settlements,” Sherri Mandell told an interviewer with HonestReporting. An Israeli producer with NBC called the settlers a “cancer” but Mandell said that Tom Brokaw defended the segment by saying some of his American Jewish friends liked it.
