Unless you’ve been living under a rock -- and even if you have been living under a rock in Israel -- you have heard of Lt. Colonel Shalom Eisner, recently dismissed from his post after a video showed him striking a Danish anti-Israel protester. There has certainly been a media firestorm over this event. In Maariv, Ben Dror Yemini writes:
Dear readers, we have gone mad. We have simply gone mad. Because there are also facts. And they too deserve respect.
The Danish ambassador has asked the Israeli authorities for an explanation of the incident. One wonders how the Danish authorities would seek explain this nearly 10-minute video of Copenhagen police clubbing protesters.
The truth is there can be no comparison between the isolated events on Route 90 near Jericho and the regular police policies in Bahrain…
…and in many other places.
Where is the outrage over these brutal policies? Where is the media firestorm these events deserve? Where’s the coverage?
