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.
