#1 The hit shown in the video was more of a push. Had the officer intended damage, he would have hit the man in a much different way. As usual, this is the Palestinian propaganda machine trying to gin up sympathy by exaggeration.

#2 Never have I heard such a brutal and shocking injustice that I cared to little about.

#3 Oh my!! The dreaded lip stiches. How about the oral surgeon for lip and tongue in teeth disease.

#5 That was a pretty good thumping - and the Danish activist probably deserved it. But - when you are in the business of applying a spectrum of responses that includes the use of deadly force - and your national interests include managing global public opinion - and you are a military commander - you have to be able to restrain yourself from acting on your natural impulse to "squash the bugs."
This officer gave too much leverage away - for precious little gain for his team. Sure - it felt good to stuff the Danes words back down his throat - but the ultimate cost to Israel will be way too high.
So, Colonel - next time - make sure that no cameras are rolling, and preferably act in the dark, and do something that leaves no marks (butt-stroke to the testicles?).

#6 The Israeli military condemned the incident as "severe"
I concur. You don't hit people with M16. The plastic breaks if you look at it nastily.

#7 LR, be serious. There is nothing IDF can do that won't be filmed and twisted to fit the narrative.

#13 Yo G, but you have to be really strong to pick it up and whack some putz in the faccia.

True. The good Colonel could have provided the "activists" with vegetarian hors d'oeuvres and organic Chardonnay, and the media would have still screamed "WAAAAR CRIIIIME" because the Chard was served at room temperature.

#15 Plastic ain't as good as wood for butt-stroking.

#16 I want to express my gratitude to the "Pro-Paleostinian activist" who made that video. It was a whole lot of fun to watch that little punk getting educated. I hope the lieutenant-colonel gets a medal for showing all the Euroweenie brats what can happen when they don't mind their manners while visting other countries.

#17 Lt. Col. Eisner claims that some of the protesters started attacking him with sticks which caused one of his fingers to break. He also suffered a major injury in his wrist which required a cast. "The weapon was the only thing I had in my hands. The whole thing lasted 60 seconds, we prevented them from getting on the road and they boarded the bus. Obviously, they didn't show the part where they attacked us with sticks in the video."
Notice how the video had been edited to leave out the part where the thugs protesters attacked the checkpoint.
What I am worried about - was the F-16 M-16 damaged in the incident?

#18 Clearly the good Colonel was mindful of the weapons shortcomings. He did NOT butt stroke wuss from Denmark. He gave the pinhead a serious taste of magazine.
Look at how he is holding the weapon, and how he delivers the blow. I'd say he knows what he is doing.

#19 why are we subjected to this pathetic kid having a cry about his little cut lip when he still has all his pearly whites?

#23 Dunno what the youts are bitching about, the good Colonel could have given him a lip unch with one of the IDF's D-8 'rifles;' you know the up-armored, tracked kind of rifles, the ones tha are used to make (St.) pancakes.

#24 The poor suffragette was sportin' a nice, neat pony, too. Some things never change...Why must they intentionally (and bravely) continue to make themselves such targets of opportunity for the Haters?
