Israeli journalist Ari Shavit is making a second attempt at a comeback after Jewish Journal reporter Danielle Berrin accused him of sexual assault in 2016. Shavit still does not admit his wrongs or has apologized to Berrin, instead, he has made himself a victim, Berrin refuses to forgive him, and neither should we forgive #MeToo offenders who do not take responsibility and apologize.
