Well that figures – the Danish activist’s cover was blown but unfortunately a few days late.
Anyway, it provides further insight into just who Israel has to deal with – as reported here.
As Kaplan writes, “Defense Minister Barak was away in South America when he saw the edited video and would have been unaware of these things. Prime Minister Netanyahu was also shown the doctored video which made the rounds of leftist Israeli media sites that only enhanced the ISM’s propaganda ploy. Neither of them would have seen the knife. Both political leaders shot from the hip in an attempt to placate the Danish ambassador in order to avoid an international incident.
But clearly, Ayas was a well-trained agent provocateur and was working with another ISM provocateur armed at the scene with a deadly weapon who also surrounded and faced off Shalom Eisner. As this information emerges, it should be plain to anyone of common sense, especially the military brass of the IDF: Lt. Colonel Eisner was not dealing with misguided peace activists but with well-trained anarchists whose goal was to violently provoke an incident with the IDF for media purposes. Eisner reacted professionally under the circumstances and would have been within his rights to shoot any of these ISM anarchists.
At issue also are some other people found in the outtakes provided by the ISM that nobody in the press has noticed. At the beginning, an unidentified male hits one of the soldiers with the wheel of his bicycle as they try to break the line in true ISM anarchist fashion. Eisner is to the right. At 2:28 we see two keffiyah-clad EU ISM women, one a blonde and the other a brunette with a white baseball cap and red shirt. Before Ayas was struck, Eisner pushed both women down off their bicycles to the ground in that video as they attempted to crash the soldiers’ line with their bicycles.
Despite this, these two women came back three more times to physically crash the line again even after Ayas was laid low. One woman may have an English accent and can be seen rubbing her cheek on the roadside after the crash was rebuffed and both women are led away by a Palestinian handler. Who are they and why aren’t they being deported?
A gross miscarriage of justice has occurred in the Shalom Eisner case, and this IDF hero clearly should be reinstated to his previous position in the IDF. The next question remaining is whether Anders Ayas has since been deported to Denmark by the Interior Ministry as well as the demonstrator with the baseball cap and knife and the other ISM activist who helped him escape.
In addition, these last two female ISM activists should be identified by the Shin Bet, interrogated and deported immediately. To allow any ISM activists to stay in Israel after facing down an IDF officer, breaking his fingers then threatening him and the other soldiers with a knife is inexcusable.
The People of Israel deserve an explanation from the government about what they are doing and why. Government officials and the IDF brass should admit they made a mistake – it will only add to their honor – and exonerate Lieutenant Eisner immediately.”
… Israel is engaged in an ongoing war against the deligimisation exponents. Hopefully Israel will learn from the permutations of this latest event and act accordingly against ISM and the like.
The protesting activists get discussed here as well… and why they are not in Syria.
