Simply barbaric! This is a video in Hebrew and shows the murder of a young man in prison. It is 15 minutes long and if you speak hebrew it will shock
you to your core. I cannot imagine ANY Israeli condoning this behaviour. I would expect condemnation of the police from our Israeli ATSers.
If you do not know Hebrew, how do you allow yourself so easily and quickly to criticize, without even knowing what led the police raid, what were its
objectives and who were those of prisoners. The result would be different if the other wings of the prison would have remained quiet.
The result unfortunately is one person dead. He was shot at close range by a weapon designed to disperse demonstrators.
How is it any different from other prisons riots in other countries, except that it's a prison in Israel and the prisoners are Palestinians, and the
whole aim of your post is – once again – to demonize Israel. The result is sad, but there was no evil intent behind it.
BTW, since you choose gilad azmon as your source, be advised he is considered a lunatic and suffice to look at the graffiti he made on the last
remaining wall of Warsaw Ghetto, which is a very significant symbol for every other Jew in the world, except this idiot. (well, maybe a dozen more
This was published as part of an expose' piece in a TV show called Uvda.
They say there that the prison was moved from army responsibility to the responsibility of the regular prison service. They also say that this whole
thing started with an exercise of the prison's service "Mazada" unit, which is their anti-riot unit (among other things).
Basically, the drill was for a specific block of the prison, but the other prisoners (in other unrelated blocks - those blocks that house the Hamas
terrorists) started rioting and things got out of hand. Basically, it was a #-up, no argument there... but when there's a riot, and violet one at
that (you see the prisoners started pretty big fires), people are bound to get hurt...

Um when you can compare the treatment of Israelis Captured by Palestinians vs the reverse - THEN I might listen to anything you have to say.
So IF the Palestinians do it it makes it perfectly OK for the Israelis to do it? Well that would mean it is OK for the Palestinians to do what the
Israelis do, huh? I don't think you will find many to agree with you.
I agree with you but the riot police showed up before there was a riot. Were they expecting one or did they create one for training purposes? In any
case a guy was killed at point blank range and he was not a serious threat to anyone.
Well, they weren't expecting, nor were they going to cause one. This was the kind of surprise inspections that are common in prisons... I assume that
if they wouldn't have rioted, no one would have been hurt, kind of an egg-chicken thing IMHO...
But, they weren't armed with lethal weapons, so at worst, it was negligence and at best it was an unfortunate accident. I am not sure how old this
is, and I don't remember the incident (I may have been away at the time), so I am not sure what happened as far as follow-up.
