    The video captures 2 minutes of the day of a soldier. Conveniently, anything that happened before has been ommitted. I, myself, or you, for that matter, must put ourselves in the skin of the particular soldier and all the circumstances he went through in the minutes and hours before. Otherwise, this is nothing but a publicity stunt: waiting until you catch on camera any kind of violent push, and present it as the IDF and Israel as a whole. If you fingerpoint Eisen, accuse me too: I would probably, even with excellent training, loose my patience, my nerves, my center, after incessantly yelling "lechu habaita" "go home", "disperse". I am no better than Eisen, and my hunch is, nobody would be under such a scenario, which is exactly what the ISM looked for as an outcome in the first place. Sorry only the efficient censor will read this.
