Incidentally, Maj. Gen. Alon has also ordered the suspension of Lt.-Col. Eisner, which also makes sense under the circumstances, assuming that his time would probably be taken up by long conversations with army investigators.

Bravo. No matter what the ISM are claiming, the IDF is going to take its time, collect testimonies, analyze the evidence and issue a reliable, truthful report. As it has done in the past.

What a pity that the man who commands the army which has such a solid, reliable spokesperson, couldn’t do what is recommended in such cases: shut up and let the pros do the talking.

IDF Chief of Staff Benny Gantz declared: “The incident does not reflect IDF principles and will be thoroughly investigated.”

It is difficult to imagine a more convoluted statement, which, essentially, condemns Lt.-Col. Eisner, whose behavior, according to Ganz, was beyond the pale of IDF principles. If Eisner is already guilty, what, exactly, is the purpose of the promised thorough investigation? To determine just how horribly guilty he is?

The IDF, like most armies, has clear rules of engagement, and clear procedures by which investigators determine whether or not those rules had been followed. It’s not a moral issue, it’s a question of whether or not the soldier in question was following the rules of engagement to the best of his ability. If it is shown that he did, then his behavior did absolutely reflect IDF principles.

But Gantz’s boss, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, came across even worse, when he declared: “Such behavior does not characterize IDF soldiers and officers and has no place in the Israel Defense Forces and in the State of Israel.”

Based on a selectively edited You Tube video posted by the sworn enemies of Israel.

At this point, largely because of the moronic reaction of the two men in charge of Israel’s security concerns, it makes no difference whether or not Lt.-Col. Shalom Eisner is exonerated by the investigation. The world will move on to fresher, more exciting videos. But the next Durban conference will certainly have two new ingredients to add to its appetizing Jew hatred compote: the self-condemning Zionist PM and Zionist COS.

  1. For 2 hours the ISM provocateurs tried to get onto the highway, and they used physical violence against the IDF soldier(s). Their physical violence is reason enough for the soldiers to use any violence against these enemy combatants in return.

  2. who is financing all these punks to come to Israel and agitate. Id really like to know who is supplying them with money so they can cause trouble in Israel while most 20 year old kids go to school, wait tables, work in book stores and hold other low wage jobs. this is part of a professional, well oiled, well financed , organized movement whose sole purpose is to undermine and destroy the Jewish Nation Of Israel.

  3. I watched this footage very closely yesterday and stopped it at various points. I noticed the splints on Col Eisner's right hand and it struck me before anyone mentioned it that this was probably the key to the whole thing. He would have been in pain which would have caused an adrenaline rush. My own feeling then was that there was a lot of missing context. Also, I noticed the "jumps" in the footage, which are typical of ISM and which often omit important events/behaviour.

  4. One of the soldiers should have filmed the whole thing! Perhaps Lt.-Col. Eisner should not have continued in the situation. He must have been in pain and that probably is what led him to strike out angrily the way he did. I'm not excusing it, though. Why weren't these soldiers given training for dealing with people like that? That should be part of their training…..not only how to fight.

  5. It’s not true, that the young Dane broke the IDF-Officers finger. As you can see on the video, the Officer beat the Guy without any reason. Lt.-Colonel Eisner said in a Press-Statement, that “somebody” hit his Hand with a stick and broke his finger, he did’nt say the young Man did. So it’s not a fair and good kind of Journalism, when the author of this article turn the truth up-side-down now.

  6. You folks are unbelievable. The still photo purporting to show splints or bandages has so clearly been photoshoped. Compare it to the actual video footage and you’ll notice that there are no splints, etc. Eisner made a very bad mistake, just like the officer who ordered a sergeant to shoot a bound prisoner in the foot several months ago. Do you think that all IDF officers, even senior ones like Eisner cannot make mistakes, sometimes terrible mistakes? Grow up!

  7. Mark Isser Coopersmith I'm not 'attacking' him. I am simply trying to be subjective. These soldiers AREN'T given the right kind of training for this kind of situation – that is a known fact. Soldiers should be soldiers…not some kind of police. I know all kinds of people.

  8. Lol yes they do…countless amounts of time Jews get beaten up by Police and getting them charged up for their charges is ridiculously hard. One edited video and this guy get's his life ruined by Denmark.

  9. It would appear from the video clip which the anarchists published, the camera was trained on Lt Col Eisner, then this Danish moonbat walked in front of Lt Col Eisner and mouthed off – probably trying to frame a confrontation.
    Perhaps he was the one who caused Eisner's broken fingers in the first place and now sought to tease him? Anyway, let's hope the knock with the rifle has put his brain back in motion and only another good kick up his tuches will send him back on a trajectory to Legoland. End of first lecture in foreign politics: MYOB – and don't provoke the locals. Especially not those holding a M16.

  10. I have a lot of respect for Prez. Netanyahu but I think he is missing the boat in this case but I wasn't there so my opinion don't count. My prayers for Shalom Eisner going up.

  11. Chaiya Eitan .I'm certain soldiers in the IDF are trained to handle crowds. Col. Eisner did a superb job against these Jew, Israel hating thug provocateurs . The enemy dispersed quickly after the Colonel gave one scum a love tap.

  12. All our problems here in Israel are caused by the Jewish Establishment. There is no democracy for Jews here, only for jihadis and their dhimmi allies like ISM, Shalom Achshav.

    Only a revolution will change things. The “holy cannon” that sunk our hopes must be dusted off and used on the traitors who’ve been selling us out right from the beginnin.

  13. Mark Isser Coopersmith In other words, according to s like you, people cannot have their own opinion on issues if they happen to be jewish and their opinion isnt in line with yours… nice…

  14. Here you have complete information on your question: The International Solidarity Movement (ISM) was founded in August 2001 by Adam Shapiro, Huwaida Arraf; Ghassan Andoni, and George Rishmawi. The organization describes itself as “a Palestinian-led movement committed to resisting the Israeli occupation of Palestinian land using nonviolent, direct-action methods and principles.”

  15. It's a shame that the Israeli government didn't learn their lesson with the flotilla incident. Until Israel stops apologizing to the world, the world will take advantage of that weakness. "My belief is that in life people will take you at your own reckoning," Anthoy Trollope. It's time for Israel to tell the world that if you mess with the lion, you get eaten. Period.

  16. Liliana Galor yes, a Jewish kapo married to a Jew-hating arab! They are not non-violent, as this little danish pos broke the IDF colonel's fingers with a wooden baton, but of course, they left that bit out! Also, the ISM were on the Mavi Marmara with the terrorist and other hoodlums and stood by while an IDF soldier nearly had his eyes gouged out! Like Antifa, who I have personally experienced at first hand, they use a seemingly innocuous bicycle as a weapon, they did on me and some friends!!
