Report hints at IDF plagiarism

A paper compiled by an IDF committee assigned to determine the effectiveness of the military's practice of demolishing Palestinian homes bears a strong resemblance to a doctorate written on the same topic by Dr. Efrat Zilber from Bar-Ilan University, Channel 10 revealed Wednesday night. According to the report, Zilber's home was repeatedly broken into during the years she worked on the paper. A Trojan horse was also installed on her computer, allowing hackers to view her files and copy her paper. The IDF Spokesperson's Office denounced the report, which hinted that the IDF committee headed by Maj.-Gen. Udi Shani had plagiarized. "The committee never heard of or saw Zilber's paper on house demolitions," an IDF statement said.
