The IDF's unfortunate photo op; Lt. Col. Shalom Eisner will be punished for excessive use of force, but also for his demonstrable stupidity.

    From the Israeli newspaper Ha'aretz:

    The deputy commander of the IDF's Jordan Valley brigade who was filmed hitting a left-wing activist with his rifle will be dismissed from his position.

    No we certainly won't see these factual vids of what the Israeli IDF is doing against any who dare protest Settlements and settler terrorism.

    Wolf Blitzer who heads up the CNN Newsroom is an EX - CEO of the Israeli Lobby AIPAC, hell, not long ago he shut down a live interview with a US soldier who was Praising Ron Pauls Foreign Policy and quickly replaced it with some useless 'non' news video.

    I wonder what the founder (Huwaida Arraf a Palestinian Christian and her Jewish husband Adam Shapiro) of ISM (International Solidarity Movement) have to say about that Israel's sick crime.

    I`m saddened and shocked to see incidents like this of the Israeli state, but heartened to see this officer will face charges(and action) over this incident. Democracies understand the need to restrain brute force, especially in the treatment of dissenters and minorities. More than that, they must be seen to exercise it.

    I fear if this assault had not been filmed independently of the Israeli state the crime would have gone unpunished and unnoted by the wider world. Did the officer know he was being filmed?

    I`ve seen no reports of this in mainstream British news, though lots of similar about alleged crimes committed by Syrian army/security personnel against protesters there.

    We won't see any of this story in the US Mainstream Media either, Many of our major media have the likes of Wolf Blitzer on CNN who heads up the Newsroom, he is an Ex Israeli Lobby AIPAC CEO, and as such will not let such stories that are a bad reflection on Israel's 'democratic' relations with the Palestinians come out on his watch.

    And of course it is considered by AIPAC and the Jewish Anti Defimation League to be 'Anti Semite' to show what is really going on by the Israeli Government against the Palestinians.

    Word is leaking out though and such coverups and accusations of Anti Semitism for exposing the truth are actually starting to backfire and bring more attention to reality. Israel's always playing the victim when in reality they are the aggressor is now catching up to them. Like crying wolf when there are none, eventually such tactics don't bring the desired attention.
