Lt. Col. Shalom Eisner, the IDF officer videotaped striking a Danish
anarchist with his gun, told a confidante Sunday that the leftist
struck him first, causing fractures in his hand.
Arik Ben Shimon, who served under Eisner in the past, spoke to him
after the incident and heard his version of what happened.
The Deputy Brigade Commander said that the moment taped and published
in the internet was preceded by verbal and physical violence that the
leftists perpetrated against him and his soldiers.
"You have to understand that this was a confrontation that lasted
over two hours and not an event that lasted a few minutes," Ben
Shimon told Arutz Sheva. "This was the last line of defense before an
area that was declared a ´closed military zone´ and the video is
obviously edited in a biased way, leaving out the part where that
anarchist from Denmark hit Eisner with a stick on his right hand and
caused fractures of his hand."
Eisner´s hand is bandaged, Ben Shimon said, and yet he has gone back
to his unit and continues to command over it.
Ben Shimon said that he has served alongside Eisner in similar events
in the past and that he never let himself be provoked by the
anarchists, and made sure not to let his soldiers be provoked either.
