    The video does not show, as the shooter claims, a situation where the Palestinian male “grabbed the soldier’s neck and pressed against him, and with the other he put the pistol to the soldier’s temple.” At no point does the Palestinian male pull out a gun.As Chaim Levinson observes in Haaretz, “it is not possible to see whether or not the deceased was holding a toy gun.” But not only that, at no time does the “Palestinian male” have the occupation soldier “pressed” into any position. The “Palestinian male” throws a punch, and there follows a fast-moving fight.Shooting victim was not near occupation soldier when shots were fired!!!Recall that the shooter claimed that the victim had a gun pressed to her colleague’s head when she fired the first shot and then, “After the first shot, he continued to hold the pistol to the soldier’s temple, so I fired two more bullets.”!!!

You love Israel and hate occupation. What do you do?

There's a certain freedom in a time of extremism and obsession and chaos. Freedom to chart a new course. Freedom to love Israel. Freedom to help undo what it's done in your name.
