More Israeli Brutality

Here's just a glimpse of the type of people that are enforcing the illegal occupation of Palestine.

An Israeli court has convicted two border guards over the unlawful killing of a Palestinian teenager in the West Bank town of Hebron in 2002.

Imran Abu Hamdieh died after the two men, Shahar Botbeka and Denis Alhazov, pushed him from the back of a military vehicle travelling at 50mph (80km/h).

He suffered serious head injuries when members of the border police unit - celebrating the end of their posting in Hebron - made him jump from their jeep as it sped through the streets.

They grabbed several Palestinians off the street and drove them to remote locations to beat them.

As the jeep reached 70-80km an hour, the policemen managed to prise his grip loose, and pushed him out of the vehicle and it sped off.

The Israeli army was unable to provide figures, but the main Israeli human rights group said it had no record of a soldier or policeman being convicted for the killing of a Palestinian.

What a disgrace!

Israel should always treat Arab terrorists like Arabs treat others- including Arabs; put a bullet in their head and promote those who do it.

Wow, all of that saddens me. If Israel truly is "the only democracy in the Middle East" and wants everyone to know it is so, why is it never held to the same standards as other democracies? Why is it always held to the standards of its Arab neighbors? You tell me!

My deepest sympathies for all Palestinians who have been terrorized by US-sponsored Israel.
