Here we go again, another Israel bashing thread based on an assumption without properly researching an article.
The comment made by the Commander has nothing to do with treatment of Palestinians it is in response to the "riots" that are being carried out by
right wing jewish settlers who, if you read a few related articles and dig a little deeper, are just out to cause trouble with anyone.
The settlers organised riots in which they attacked both Palestinians and IDF without discrimination, throwing rocks and molotovs and overrunning an
IDF outpost. In short it was just a bunch of young JEWISH right wing activists that caused the trouble in the first place.
Regardless of this, you shouldn't shoot your own countrymen for protesting. If I came to America and started throwing molotovs at an army base what
do you think the response would be?? I doubt I'd get a warm handshake and a cup of tea..
