The Israeli government will prosecute an Israeli journalist for visiting an enemy Arab state, a Justice Ministry spokesman said. Amnon Kapeliuk, 48, who reports for the mass-circulation Yediot Aharonot and the French newspaper Le Monde Diplomatique, visited neighboring Jordan twice in the last six months on a French passport, the spokesman said. Kapeliuk holds dual Israeli-French citizenship. If convicted, he could be sentenced to a year in prison.
