Violinist Update 2

Here's more from Haaretz:
The IDF's probe was based partly on testimony from another Machsom Watch volunteer, Rachel Bar-Or, who witnessed the incident. She told Haaretz yesterday that she gave the IDF her testimony before she learned that Tayam denied playing voluntarily.

She said that until she read the violinist's account of the incident in the press, she was more than prepared to believe the soldiers' version of events.
Whom should Ms. Bar-Or believe... the violinist or her lying eyes? Or, should that be, whom to believe; the lying violinist, or her own eyes? For shame!
