I used to work around there, and have seen constant back and forth between the Arab kids and the Magav (border police), but have never seen any of the latter overstep themselves, and I've watched closely. On the other hand, I could see how one might. On the other hand, this is B'tzelem we're talking about, well known for dishonest videos. On the other hand, wehre's the video?

Hey. The kid in the front isn’t even sighting down his scope. That proves he’s a piece-loving Palestinian who only wants his own land./sarc

On a scale of one to ten, I’d say that’s a three or a four at most. Didn’t look like much of a kick, and the kid was screeching loudly the moment they grabbed him. Lousy camera work made context completely unknowable.
