    ... to film state instituted lying criminals attacking innocent citizens. If a Palestinian minor is taken three weeks into custody on these charges and we now have evidence that border police militia men are guilty of that same crime, will Staff Sgt. Aviv Peretz and Staff Sgt. Yehiel Uziel also be taken into custody? (apart from the elaborate lying to the court) Well, we all know the answer to that question. They will be charged with minor offenses and will spend the entire court procedure in complete freedom, probably won't even be suspended during the criminal hearing and they will be punished with something trivial, like a formal warning. They might even be demoted! Oy-va-voy, that would be really a harsh punishment! How wonderful it is to see so clearly this apartheid system at work. This time hasbara, organised lying in court and blurring of the circumstances by the security services is useless. Let's be honest: if that camera wasn't there, how many years of false imprisonment would Biomi have gotten? How many Palestinians are innocently in prison or just randomly beaten up by those tugs of the border militia men? I advise all Palestinians to put more CCTV in place, to have their film cameras ready when they walk in the streets, ready to film these criminals and to show it to the entire whole world how violent, illegal occupation and apartheid works. The video camera should be the main Palestinian weapon in fighting the occupation. It´s non/violent and doesn´t leave any doubt who the aggressor is and the victim.
