If, in fact, Lt.-Col. Shalom Eisner, the deputy commander of the IDF’s Jordan Valley Brigade, did strike a foreign pro-Palestinian activist with his rifle on Saturday unprovoked and not in self-defense, we condemn such action in the strongest terms.

Such conduct has no place in the IDF, an army that prides itself on its high moral standards.
