Knesset security on Sunday detained for questioning three Peace Now activists who misrepresented themselves as students in order to interview MK Michael Ben-Ari (NU), Army radio reported. The impersonators admitted to being sent by Peace Now in order to gather information for a documentary film about the political Right in Israel. According to Channel 10, the activists requested an interview with Ben-Ari a few days ago and passed a background check. During the course of the interview, Ben-Ari and his aide suspected that they were impersonating students and referred the matter to Knesset security. The check revealed that the three arrived at the Knesset a week prior for interviews with MK Danny Danon (Likud) and MK Fania Kirshenbaum (Israel Beitenu).
