The behavior of Lt.-Col. Shalom Eisner's behavior, the IDF officer caught on videotape slamming his M16 into the face of a Danish activist is unacceptable, Defense Minister Ehud Barak said Tuesday morning in an interview with Israel Radio.

According to the defense minster, Eisner must be allowed to present his side, and therefore the IDF was correct in suspending him as an initial response. 

Barak emphasized that Eisner's actions do not match the IDF's values, and require a full investigation.
