As a Jew and ex IDF officer, I was shocked to see IDF
soldiers dragging a bleeding young Palestinian in the
streets of Hebron. The shocking image showed our
solders as sadists who rejoice over the killing of a young
man, and drag his body to our settlers to rejoice, dance,
exchange candy and congratulations and kick the
not yet dead body.
It reminds me of cheetahs and hyenas, which kill and
drag their prey. The problem is that these animals kill to
survive. Our solders kill to maintain the occupation, an
It seems to me that our society has become increasingly
violent and moved away from Zionist principles. When
the Arab crowd lynched our solders in Ramallah, it was
criminal, and they were savage, and when our
disciplined solders do it, it is heroism and civilized.
I strongly believe that their blood is as red as ours and
equally sacred. Our army's actions in the West Bank
and Gaza amount to crimes against humanity. The Israel
Defense Forces should investigate in a fair way and
punish these soldiers before the world wakes up and put
most of us on trial for crimes against humanity.
