Today is not a sad day for all of us.

Today was lit up with a spark of hope, showing all of us, that Israel is not yet lost.

Today, gave some of us new hope that Israel can be saved of itself, that humanism will prevail and that the looming darkness will be pushed back by the light that came out of that gloomy courtroom in Tel Aviv.

The trial of this soldier created emotions in Israel society that reveal again the dangerous course that our politicians are leading us onto. It was used to further shady political goals and problematic idealistic ideas but more than all of that showed that some of us (many of us) have no interest in justice if it doesn’t serve the cause. The cause of nationalism, hatred of anything and anybody not Jewish, and the cause of racism!

The question that should be asked is why and how did the event that took place in Hebron got to where they got and it ended up in a military court. The answer is simple: a camera.
Somebody, (a Palestinian as it so happened) was at the scene and filmed the events and transferred his footage to an Israeli Organization that still believes that not everything is allowed in the Occupied Territories.

Just listening to the news of the past year, with many dozens of terror attacks reported whereby a very large number of Palestinians was killed, makes you wonder: how many Azarias are out there that got away with what they did because no camera recorded the events?

The IDF is the most moral army in the world……….. That’s why they are waging an all-out war against Breaking the Silence. The army has nothing to hide so why should we let those libelous self-hating Jews dirty our good name?

For now, even one Azaria getting the punishment the courts decided he deserves keeps hope alive that one day we will come to our senses. Of course the mob outside the courthouse does a lot to quell that hope.

Did you talk about that when you said it was a sad day for all of us, Mr. Prime Minister?
