Headline is yellow journalism at its best. Shame on you Gilly Cohen. Who do you think you are, Amira Haas? As I saw the video, the person was struck once by the broadside of the rifle in an attempt to push the person from approaching a restricted area. To you this is the same as being BEATEN by the end of a rifle butt. If the IDF officer had used a baton or nightstick in the same fresh ion, this would not even made last page news. Shame on you.
