Another day, another case of Israeli soldiers showing the ugly side of the occupation (make that: ‘the only side of the occupation’).
Here’s an incident that happened four years ago and that is now being discussed in the courts. A group of Border Police officers detained a Palestinian man, who appears to be mentally disabled, after he did not bring his ID while trying to cross a checkpoint. The story was reported last week by Channel 2, and I’ve decided to subtitle the video now. Why is this important, you may ask, if it happened four years ago? Simple: because this is the stuff that goes on every day, all over the West Bank. The only reason it’s being reported every once in a while is because someone is dumb enough to film it, and even dumber to put it on the net. Remember Eden Abergil?
