"We´ve Gone Mad" – that was the caption over an op-ed piece by
Maariv´s Ben-Dror Yemini, a leading opinion-shaper, Tuesday morning.
The op-ed describes the way Israel´s press has cooperated with pro-
Hamas European anarchists in defaming Lt. Col. Shalom Eisner, because
of a single act of violence against a Danish anarchist.
The five-second-long video segment in which Eisner can be seen
pushing the magazine of his gun into the Dane´s face has been shown
in Israeli media over and over again, in "loops," hundreds of times
in the past few days.
"It´s been a long time since we had an event that made it possible to
portray Israel as a monster," Yemini wrote sarcastically. "No ´Cast
Lead,´ no massacre in Jenin, not even a mini-intifada. The promises
of a ´million man march´ toward Israel´s border melted into
nothingness, the flotillas stopped coming, even the mass flytilla
turned out to be bogus. Nada… And then it happened. It may have
seemed for a moment that Israel was successful in hiding the fact
that it is a monster – but then the plot was exposed. The ultimate
proof was given in a seconds-long segment showing IDF officer Lt.
Col. Shalom Eisner striking a Danish ´cyclist´ with his gun."
"At last. The most brutal army on earth was displayed for all to see."
Yemini notes that Eisner had been injured in the incident, which
lasted one or two hours – and that the five-second clip was preceded
by anarchists´ provocations and violence. And yet, the legal analyst
for the publicly-funded Israel Broadcasting Authority went on the air
to say that the matter seems to be "exceedingly grave," and that
Eisner should be put on criminal trial. "It is only a matter of time
before the acclaimed jurist recommends a petition to the
International Court in Hague alleging a crime against humanity, and
the UN´s Human Rights Council convenes a special session to put
Richard Goldstone back to work."
"Dear readers – we have gone mad. We have simply gone mad."
Yemini notes that the "cyclists" are in facts anarchists, mostly
European, who support Hamas and the Islamic Jihad. "They are part of
the red-green alliance between Islamists and the radical Left." The
International Solidarity Movement, to which the Danish anarchist
belongs, openly supports terror against Israel.
"Israel is apparently the only country in the world that grants
freedom of action to those who openly seek to destroy it, in the name
of human rights, of course."
Despite Israel´s long experience with the antics of "Pallywood," he
writes, "the media tribunal went into action as a court against war
crimes." (IsraelNationalNews © 2012 04/17/12)
