An excellent piece from Haaretz.
It continues to baffle and sicken me how people can continue to defend the ISraeli regime and the IDF as anything but immoral monsters. This is made all the more worse when on the one hand they repeatedly invoke the old trope of nazism, holocaust etc. etc. and how much the Jews of Israel have been persecuted and on the other they detain and shoot unarmed children in Gaza and the West bank and abduct countless others, dont give the civilians under their military occupation any civil rights, shell and bomb civilians apartment blocks and have an openly fascist government.
Now say what you want about the idea of Israel as a state and the IDF as a 'force for protection' but the current state of Israel is not but a corrupt fascist genocidal kleptocracy and the IDF have long since lost their purity of arms and god sent mission - they do little but murder civillians and relish in running rough shod over international law and the laws of engagement.
Shame on you hypocrites who support this shameful show.
Israeli army claims Mohammed Tamimi's injury is 'fake news,' but medical documents, eyewitness accounts and images of bullet removed from his head obtained by Haaretz challenge account
The cousin of Palestinian teen Ahed Tamimi admitted during an interrogation that he was not shot in his head during clashes last year, but rather was injured in a bike accident, Israel's Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories, Maj. Gen. Yoav Mordechai, wrote Tuesday in a Facebook post in Arabic.>>How the Israeli army got a teen who was shot in the head to say he fell off a bike | AnalysisMohammed Tamimi, the 15-year-old cousin of Ahed – who was caught on film slapping Israel Defense Forces soldiers on December 15, 2017, and is currently facing trial – was shot minutes before that incident in the West Bank village of Nabi Saleh. At the time, Tamimi was seriously wounded and was operated on by doctors who extracted bullet fragments from his skull.

He wrote that while being questioned by police, the teen admitted that, as opposed to claims by his father that he was injurred by rubber-tipped bullets during clashes, "he was injured while he was riding his bicycle and fell off it."According to the IDF general, the fall "caused a blow to his skull when hitting the handlebars." Mordechai claimed that it was the injury from this accident, and not a bullet, that prompted doctors to operate and remove a part of the teen's skull."What is the truth about Mohammed Tamimi? His father claimed that his son had a rubber bullet in his skull and that the doctors had to remove part of his skull in order take it out," the COGAT chief wrote, adding sarcastically, "Wonder of wonders. Today, the boy himself confessed to the police and to COGAT that in December his skull was injured when he was riding his bicycle."
