Response to shira (Reply #9)

10. I can see why you think the Daily Mail article should be removed, even though I don't agree.

The Daily Mail article is clearly trying to portray the attacker (the IDF soldier) as the victim, while it's pretty clear that the decision to arrest the boy was wrong. The article is perhaps incitement to you, but I think it's just bad journalism.

The second clip seems to be edited in a way that makes things look worse than they were, but the pictures are genuine.

The third one actually looks as if the soldier closest to the guy lying down receives a small object from another soldier that he then furtively throws at the ground close to the guy lying down.

The problem is that if there should be a standard for clips like these, it can't be controlled by Israel. Israel has a tendency to show intentionally misleading clips too. I think it's best for the court of common opinion to decide what the truth is. Should we censor clips of atrocities in Syria too, just because Assad's government say that they're incitement?

I actually don't know of any instance in the free world where clips like these are censored, and I think they never should be.

Free speech and all that...
