The court has ruled that the radio station must compensate the young woman, a student at the Hebrew University, after it had published her picture as an illustration for supporting a terrorist. "The publication has put me in real danger," the student said in a court hearing held in early December at the Jerusalem Magistrates Court. The case was managed by students Uria Beeri, Tamar Baum, Noor Shibli and Yael Kolodny.

The claim against Nonstop Radio was served in February 2016 by the Clinic, arguing that the radio station's conduct constitutes libel on ethnic background. The claim also stated that the defendants had made a generalizing and callous link between the cultural characteristic of a particular ethnic and religious background and the support of terrorists.

In the hearing held in December, the radio station agreed to compensate the student for the amount of NIS 25,000. Judge Abraham Rubin gave the agreements between the two parties the validity of judgement. "We hope the media takes heed of this verdict, and make sure that women who wear a hijab are no longer subject to labeling, harassment and discrimination," said adv. Peled.
