    The Ninth Commandment

    The ninth of the Ten Commandments warns us against bearing false witness.

    Looked at as a courtroom rule it means that a person who has been where something took place and has seen or heard what occurred must tell the court the truth and not distort the facts.

    As a broader principle of ethics it means that data must not be twisted. You must be careful with how you report a situation.

    In our generation, false reporting is constantly used to target and hurt Israel. We hear on all sides that the Jewish people have no history of attachment to the Promised Land, that there never was a Jewish Temple in Jerusalem, and Israel has deliberately judaised historical events.

    False witness!!
