Lt. Colonel Shalom Eisner to be Retired


Eisner-hammer-Independence Day

Lt. Colonel Shalom Eisner, who was suspended from duty in April 2012, after striking a foreign anarchist blocking a highway, has reached a plea bargain with the IDF.

Eisner hit the Danish anarchist with his rifle after the agent provocateur purposely positioned himself directly in Eisner’s face, as Eisner was trying to move the anarchists off the road. The anarchist was part of an organized group of 250 anarchists who were blocking highway 90.

Another anarchist had just broken Eisner’s fingers during the 2 hour confrontation.

Some of the anarchist were also “bumping” their bicycle’s into the IDF soldiers as a “non-violent” provocation.

In the agreement, Eisner will get 2 months of community service without pay. Instead of being discharged from the IDF, he will retire early (preserving his pension), but he won’t be eligible for further promotions.

The well-respected Eisner was supposed to be appointed to head the prestigious Bahad 1 officer’s school, but was instead given a senior position at the Tzeilim army base until this deal was reached.

Unfortunately, the IDF seems to have not learned the two most important lessons from the event, the first is to support your soldiers as they fight the enemy, and the second is that the anarchists immediately dispersed in panic once they realized that the soldiers were prepared to use just a little bit of force to stop them from blocking the highway.

    Should give him a medal.

    Why was that Dutch criminal let into Israel in the first place?
    Why wasn't that so called anarchist arested?
    And how did destroying the career of a good soldier benefit Israel?
    Are Israel hating leftists now going to love Israel?
    Or are they going to view Israel as suicdal and so send even more criminals.
    to disrupt? Does israel have a death wish?

  3. Alejandro Mandil says:

    He is a hero and must be sent to Samaria and Judea  to let know to the arabs that they living  are in Israel and not in palestina.

  4. As an anarchist he should have been prosecuted and deported – and made to pay for all the inconveniences he caused. Shame on these people who spread hatred about Israel and Jews – because they have nothing to contribute to the world except hatred, and they are envious and resentful of Jews/Israel who contribute masses for the good of humanity. As my grandma used to say 'I hope all his teeth fall out except for one which should remain for tooth-ache'.

  5. John Newman says:

    He was doing his best for Israel. I am sure that he was provoked.

  7. Israel has to change, starting with the goverment, a bad goverment has bad judments, this IDF soldier should be completed restored, it is a shame protecting the israeli people from anarchist, he is punished.

  8. I don't think that this guy should be punished at all. They broke his fingers and were "lightly bumping their bikes into the soldiers.
    That's not a "non-violent" protest, that is a mildly violent means of protest. I'll bet the bonk on the noggin kept the guy from doing.
    it again. Maybe it's time for Israel to dis-allow Dutch tourists. I think that is what I would do.

  9. Yechiel Baum says:

    if you do not support your soldiers who are defending the country against law breaking foreigners, that further entitles the arab squatters living in Israel do break the law and kill the Jews. In every country, if a foreigner and anarchist breaks the law, they are immediately arrested. Russia would put them in a gulag.
    simply deporting the foreigner and dismissing the proud Israeli soldier is an embarrassment to all Jewish soldiers dead or alive.

    Finally, why was the Dutchman's name on the Israel watch list prohibiting his entry to Israel. Knesset members are barred from entering the EU but Israel is to be liberal to allow in the enemy? Any Secheil in this?

    What a gutless action by IDF brass! Under the circumstances as described, Eisner showed great restraint. If I were in charge, they'd be still cleaning the bits and pieces of these vermin off Highway 90, two years later. And I'd give the d-bag who broke Eisner's fingers a lesson that my two feet work just fine.

    I wonder if those anarchists go to Gaza to protest the terrorist regime's mistreatment of non-radical Moslems? Do the anarchists go to Israel to protest terrorist aggression against Jews? Do they go to Egypt to protest the mistreatment of the Coptic Christians by Moslems? Do the anarchists go to Turkey and Iraq to protest the mistreatment of the Kurds? Do the anarchists go Saudi Arabia to protest the mistreatment of women? Do they go to Iran to protest the mistreatment of Sunnis and Kurds? Do they go to Sunni controlled country to protest the mistreatment of Shias? Do they go to any of the 57 Islamic dominated countries to protest the mistreatment of all non-Moslems, ethnic minorities, and women? I'm pretty sure that the answer to all those questions is, "no."

  14. I see you are indeed pro-Israeli then. How tragic and what a tragedy to witness that you are pro-Democrat, instead of the only sane and correct choice, being pro-Republican that is. This standpoint is kind of schizofrenic I'm afraid. I am of coruse both massively pro-Israel and pro-Repub at the same time. I am also fervently pro-Yesha, too. Shana Tova to you and family!

  15. He was Danish. Otherwise I agree with you absolutely.

  16. One detail is incorrect – the foreign creep/dirt/filth was Danish, not Dutch. Otherwise spot on!

  17. HONOR AND GLORY TO Lt. Colonel Shalom Eisner. WE LOVE YOU AND THANK YOU FOR YOUR DEDICATION TO THE INTEGRITY AND SAFETY OF THE STATE OF ISRAEL…IT IS A SHAME THAT YOUR SUPERIORS DO NOT…
    SHANA TOVA AND THANKS FOR SERVING ISRAEL.

  18. Bear Klein says:

    IDF trying to be PC. Too bad. Eisner is a human being and reacted to a provocation within reasonable means. He did NOT shoot him. He hit him, a quit reasonable response.

  19. Du Val Jax says:

    Eisner is a human being and reacted in self defense. The anachist should be put in jail with his terrorist supporters group and expelled from the country. The IDF should give a promotion as a reward.

  20. Why are these people even in Israel. Put them on the next plane out.

  21. Dan Silagi says:

    I am not easily classifiable.

    Just because of that little punch in the blondie bitch’s face? Come on!
