Bayit Yehudi leader Naftali Bennett attacked the political echelon on Sunday for conducting a 'field trial' against the soldier in Hebron who was caught on video earlier in the week killing a Palestinian terrorist who was apparently neutralized.

Immediately following the release of the video on Thursday, politicians rushed to "dance to B'Tselem's fiddle," Bennett told Israel Radio, referring to the human rights group that released the video of the killing.

Bennett said that even if the soldier made a mistake of judgment he was not a murderer. He said that the possibility of the soldier being tried for murder demonstrated the total loss of proportions in the matter and he would act to ensure that the soldier would receive a just trial.
