How many acts of arbitrary violence have Israeli soldiers committed yet we’ve never heard about it because the victims weren’t working for a major Western press group?

A mountain of shame on Israel; a brutal state which does not represent the Jewish people. Take that Star of David off the flag and put on a bulldozer. That would be more fitting.

So, again the cream of the Land of Israel rises to the top and the Foreign Minister is accused of corruption. Par for the course.

Watch out! You never know where the Zionists will “defend themselves” next…

Until America wakes up and quits supporting these thugs, nothing will change.

I’d like to punch a few liberal newsmedia folks who are more concerned with agendas than with objective reporting.

Go, Israel.

And don’t expect an apology, either. Israel does whatever it wants
and doesn’t care about anybody. The same thing will happen when it
attacks Iran. And the United States will stand by twiddling its thumbs
and we will get sucked into another war in that region.

These are Israelis. what did you expect? decency? fair play?

not a chance. This is how the palestinians have been assaulted and humiliated on a daily basis for decades. The only reason your heard this time was because Reuters staff were involved.

The israelis are going insane because they palestinians had the audacity to seek UN recognition (and protection). Expect more revenge atrocities from the israel army. just don’t expect to hear about it.

and of course nothing will happen to these soldiers of Zionism. Only solution remains the armed struggle against the occupying Zionist enemy.

If true, this was pointless and can only hurt Israel and help Palestinians.

Putting aside the fact that many of you have rushed to judgement without even allowing an investigation to occur (something that Israel has begun), and if we take everything reported by Reuters as factual (holding back the laughter), that would still justify only condemnation of the involved soldiers, and of course full prosecution. It is no more justification to condemn Israel as a country as the behavior of a small handful of US soldiers is reason to condemn the entire US as a country. I doubt Israeli citizens would condone this (alleged) behavior any more than Americans would…

Finally Israeli soldiers were stupid enough to assault someone that would tell the world what kind of people they really are. That country definitely doesn’t deserve the right to exist like they all claim.

What the hell is this nazi germany, where people are detained at will and punched in their guts and then hospitalized, just shameful!
And they claim to be the persecuted race, don’t think so anymore. Their condescending attitude coupled with the carte blance support by US, we may never see peace in this troubled holy land.

The Israeli Gestapo in action. Human rights?? What human rights. The Israeli government is spreading Christmas cheer throughout the world. Can’t you feel it?

A lot, in the occupied lands. Both settlers and IDF assault the locals routinely, as well s chopping their land up with Jews-only roads. One of the charities (I don’t remember which… Christian Aid or similar) issued camcorders to settlers so they could film Israeli violence. Not so surprisingly, the Israelis took them all.

When it happens repeatedly, for years on end, it is no longer a few bad individuals. It is systemic.

In the Arab colonist-occupied lands stolen from Jews across the Middle East, the Muslim imperialists just killed as many as they could and took the Jews’ homes, farms, lands, and businesses. Now they complain that the Jews have their historic homeland. One million Jewish refugees from the 1930s to the 1950s…no justice for them

Judging the Muslims by the same standards they judge the Jews by, zero Islamic countries should exist, and by the logic being applied by a bunch of commenters here, these Muslim countries should be dominated by Christians, from whom they stole the lands to begin with, when the Islamic banner roared out of the Arabian Peninsula. Islamic imperialism and Arab colonialism are responsible for the lack of peace in the Middle East today. One billion Muslims ethnically cleansed one million Jews from their midst, and now they covet the tiny piece of land that is and always has belonged to the Jews. Yeah, I’m really convinced that everything is Israel’s fault..cough, cough

Abulafia – you mean systemic like almost like the Arab countries, right? You know, where there is zero rule of law, and torture and dictatorships are the norm? Like that, right? And you’ve been really working hard to correct those problematic Arab countries, right Abulafia? Or have you got two standards, one for you and one for everyone else?

Don’t you folk’s remember: It is news only if the editor of that particular rag says it is news. Does not say their reporters may have been where they were told NOT to go. Unlike the USA the Israelis do not broadcast their movements on the battlefield. Oh wait that’s the reporters for US papers wanting the scoop and exclusive even if it kills American troops.

Israel has craftily stolen much land from the Palestinians, every year, for the last 60 years, since 1948. It has continued to murder them when they resist the land stealing, labeling them “terrorists”.

America and Israel have become the great murderers of the world.

In the last 40 years, what nation has killed more human beings on Earth than any other?

America. We killed over a million Vietnamese, people who never harmed us. Then we killed Iraqi humans, around 100,000, who never harmed us. Now we are killing Afghan humans.

Israel, meanwhile, every year murders Palestians who resist Israel’s land theft.

But the cleverest Hollywood script writers and propagandists on Earth reside in Israel, and they have the world believing that Iran, who has invaded nobody, would immediately use a nuclear weapon if it had one.

Israel itself, constantly threatening to strike Iran, is driving the world toward war. Israel, the great criminal nation, steals more land from defenseless Palestinians every day, while cleverly diverting our attention by pointing their finger at Iran.

Israel, who every day steals land, who bulldozes homes, cuts down olive tree groves, who kills Palestinian children with tanks and helicopter. This same Israel cleverly points their finger at Iran, who steals nobody’s land, and invades nobody.

Israel and America have become the world’s greatest killers.
