The My Truth organisation has put out an explosive new testimony. In harsh contrast to the anonymous and unverifiable testimonies put out by the sneaky anti-Israel NGO, Breaking the Silence, My Truth always identify the soldier giving testimony.
This one contains an explosive revelation that a person, wearing B’Tselem identification, was actively aiding Arab rock throwers toward a surrounded and besieged group of three IDF soldiers. Those rock throwers succeeded in causing a serious injury to Captain Mordi Arieli.
“On the corner of the roof of the house stands a man, not young, with a protective vest in blue or green, with a big B’Tselem label and he’s recording us and simultaneously pointing in our direction and shouting in Arabic”
My questions for B’Tselem:
- Where is the video shot by this man, has it been released?
- Do you condemn your staff and supporters taking part in attempts to kill IDF soldiers?
Here’s their description of the video:
“There’s a man, not young, with a protective vest in blue or green, with a big B’Tselem label, and he’s recording us and simultaneously pointing in our direction and shouting in Arabic…”
Captain Mordi Arieli recounts how he reported in 2013 for a month of reserve duty and was sent to stop a violent Palestinian mob near Route 60, close to Gush Etzion. Arieli surely never imagined that within hours he would be lying in hospital after sustaining a gruesome, life-changing injury.
While many of the statements gathered by My Truth are troubling, this testimony is especially worrying, and it should set alarm bells ringing for all concerned with human rights. How can it be that human rights activists are co-operating with violent rioters? Why are human rights activists participating in attacks on Israeli soldiers?
