Its so easy for a politician to sit at home and criticize soldiers for their actions. If they are the ones on the front line then they have to make the difficult decisions like when to open fire. Protestors did die true, but its obvious the troops were at least trying to disperse the crowds without lethal force because they were using things like tear gas. As for Uri Avneri himself, he is about as far left as you can get ( he makes Gideon Levy look like a right winger ). When he puts on the uniform and goes to protect the northern border if he feels the IDF used excessive force he has a right to protest because he was there, he saw the situation first hand but just condemning the IDF and saying they were trigger happy because some protestors died does not make him an expert on the situation. This has nothing to do with if the IDF used excessive force or not this is a man on the far left whose political career ended long ago looking for an excuse to make a political statement.
