Female Israeli Soldiers Disclose IDF Abuse of Palestinian Children

Forced confessions, abuse of children...

Rotem and Inbar- IDF soldiers
Rotem and Inbar- IDF soldiers

(SALEM, Ore.) - So what happens in Israel that turns people into undisciplined military thugs? One would assume that kids there are not so different from those here in the US or in the UK, but indeed they are.

In this video, two female Israeli soldiers talk about their experiences and the abuse they were tied to as part of Israel's armed forces. Other military groups have soldiers who break the rules including the U.S. Army, of course, but the abuse of civilians isn't randomly accepted policy in any American outfit. Again, it happens, but in Israel it is all day every day.

Earlier today I showed you video of Israeli soldiers treating female civilians and an elderly male with serious brutality that is obviously highly unnecessary. (see: The Israeli Military's Unforgivable Abuse of Women - Opinion by Tim King

Both that video and this were sent to the newsroom by Gilad Atzmon in London, who knows all too well how Israeli soldiers treat Palestinians. He has spent years and years trying to change it, with great successes at times.

As these women in this video disclose, in the Israeli Defence Forces, reports are altered to prevent internal investigation. One soldier says she thought about copying the originals and the altered reports, to take them to a journalist. However, she didn't.


She doesn't know, she says.

The other reveals how when Palestinian children are suspects, their confessions are guaranteed. Perhaps reasons like this explain why Israel is increasingly being seen in a light with the worst military groups in history including the Nazi's.

All I can say is that everyone is a victim, including the lowly soldiers that follow orders and struggle to "remain humane". The system is sick, Zionism is a cancer and both Arabs and Jews are being used and victimized. Soooooooo sad! The real problem is we in the USA are funding this crap. If we stop the money all of this will go away. Stop the money!!

In the more radical Jewish groups, it's perfectly acceptable to kill the children of your enemies so they can''t grow up and come after you later. This is of course the same perversion of religious thought that drives radical Islam. With zionism being the root driving force behind them both.


Editor: I'd call that 'fundamental' truth, thanks always X.

This is such an important video. I hope others will spread this as far and wide as they possibly can. Daily, I paste reports of such abuses on twitter and ask "Why do you not respond to this, Mr. Obama? In your speeches you decry the fear that Israeli's face.. what about the fear these children face each day? What about the pain they feel from the beatings, the batteries attached to their young genitals, the cigarettes put out on their tender skin? There are far too many examples of this sickening abuse to be denied and yet with your silence you do deny. What is wrong with you?" Just today, a 7 yr old is kidnapped and beaten. His aunt and father are beaten. His lawyer is not allowed to see him and his whereabouts are refused to his parents. This video is so important. Thank you, Tim.. and thank you, Gilad. Someone must speak for these children. Their scars will last a lifetime.
