EVERYBODY BUY THIS BOOK !!
'A former Israeli soldier who served three years in the Gaza Strip has described Israeli treatment of Palestinian civilians as befitting “animals,
criminals, and thieves.”
Staff Sergeant Liaran Ron Furer has written a book on his experience as an Israeli soldier manning roadblocks throughout the Gaza Strip.
The book, Titled “Checkpoints-Twilight Zone,” contains personal testimonies and often brash accounts of the daily harassment and humiliation inflicted
by young Israeli soldiers on Palestinian civilians.
Among the accounts narrated by Furer are stories of soldiers having souvenir pictures with Palestinians they had beaten up, soldiers pissing on the
heads of a Palestinian because the man had the nerve to smile at a soldier and how one soldier, nicknamed Dado, forced a Palestinian to stand on four
legs and bark like a dog....'
My comment - Israel doesn;t allow people to film what happens at checkpoints. Even BBC and CNN are banned from filming there. This book should shed
light on why.
For years Palestinians have been crying abuot the treatment they get at these checkpoints, and the world has ignored them. I urge everyone to buy the
book and make it headline news, because I struggled to find any information about this book.
Anyone find out where I can buy it, please let me know !
