Today in horrible people, 22 year old Niv Asraf, an Israeli, has been charged with a variety of offences related to his attempt to win back his ex girlfriend by pretending to have been kidnapped by Palestinians in the West Bank. Apparently he hoped to impress her with a heroic story of how he escaped his non existent captors.

What a selfish little douchenozzle. Beyond the fact that he was trying to emotionally manipulate his ex, did he spare a thought for how this might affect tensions in the region? Last year an Arab Israeli teen was tortured and burnt to death after the kidnapping and murder of some Jewish Israelis. His little stunt could have been the partial cause of a similar attack. At the very least, there were Palestinians who had contact with police over this made up case.
