Video: Israeli troops filmed kicking Palestinian child



An Israeli Border Police officer has been caught on video kicking a Palestinian child in the southern West Bank. The police have launched a probe into the incident, documented by an Israeli human rights organization.

The footage shows a 9-year-old boy walking down the road when a uniformed police officer runs up to him and grabs him by the arm, causing the boy to fall on the ground. Another policeman then walks up to them and kicks the screaming child.

After that, the soldiers let the child run away, and leave the site.

I must point out that it seems like the child walks around a corner of a building and the 1st soldier runs into him accidentally, BUT the 2nd soldier clearly only comes over to kick the boy! DISGUSTING!

Interesting to see many here defend the soldier

"Can't tell based on what we see", no rush to judgement...

Uh huh. Well you haven't bothered to look how persons imprisoned in occupied territories are treated daily. Or you are in denial. Or you have an agenda.

Nuff said.

There is nothing strange about having a bar of soap in your right pocket, it's just what's happening.

I'm not defending it

but it's nothing.

Obviously it's wrong but no-one died, no bones were broken.

One thing I hate about the politicization of everything is the way we seize on minor infractions from our enemies and exaggerate them to be hideous crimes.

I actually think that's one of the biggest hurdle towards peace . That and the endless recriminations. Let's all get worked up by a brat kid getting a graze because it suits our agenda.

Anyway, peace

Not Israeli's

those were not Israeli's that is not their uniform and they wear hard hats. This is from someone who supports an non intervention foreign policy and fiscal nationalism.

Looked more like a good,

Looked more like a good, well-placed butt kick spanking to me. I wiuldnt fall for such videos, kids can be just as cruel. Who knows, the soldiers couldve been just patrolling and the kid was just being stupid and throwing rocks at them. In such a scenario, id do the exact same thing - give them a spanking. And honestly, the first soldiers grip on the kid looked more painful than the kick (the kid was agonizing over the grip, but the kick made him stop and run away).

The collectivist mindset

The collectivist mindset groups people together and judges the many by the actions of the few.
How and why are so many Paul supporters apparent collectivists?

I'm not an Israel-firster or

I'm not an Israel-firster or anything, but I don't see how this would merit any attention. People are making this into some kind of international humanitarian crisis. "Look out! Israeli border police are coming to kick your children in the pants!" Besides, videos almost always misrepresent the situation just by negation of what occurred leading up to the event in question. It could very well have been a setup.

Thank God Israel don't have

Thank God Israel don't have nuclear weapons.WAIT...

Samson Option, threat to mankind, Earth.

zion believes in pre-emptive strike/ war, that is why it attacked in the 1967 war & occupied a lot of neighbors' land, e.g. JeruSalem, Palestine, Golan Heights, Gaza, etc.
Today Zionists wants to attack Iran, blaming Iran of intent to make nuclear weapons. Zionists are like "thought police", because Iran has been searched & inspected by IAEA many times, like Iraq 10 years back. Zionists fabricate excuses for war & murder.

"Samson Option" is a suicidal game & threat, or like M.A.D. =(Mutually Assured Destruction.), even threatens Europe. Zion has over 200 nuclear warheads.


We should worry over our own back yard.

I believe Ron Paul would deem this article NEGATIVE and not even consider reading

"OH NO! He has a SON?" Neoconservatives and Liberals EVERYWHERE!

Rand Paul 2016

Ron paul points out negative

Ron paul points out negative things all the time. When the patriot act passed, dis he simply not talk about it because it was negative? No, its far more important to make people aware of the problem and try to fix it. And this situation isn't an oddity. Its the common treatment towards the palestinians by Israel and sponsored with your tax dollars. For more info on the subject look up michael scheur and israel. Hes one of few people willing to tell it like it is.

Deliberate = No Accident.

+1, thanks for posting, & exposing the zionist bullies. Yes, its Disgusting. See again, you will notice the first soldier runs towards the boy, - bumps - boy falls - soldier grabs & talks tough, boying crying, - then the 2nd soldier comes over & kicks the boy. RT /your heading is right, plural = troop-s.

This is a daily occurrence at so many towns & villages in Palestine.

The zionist 'settlers' are worse, harass & harm palestinians -



I guess those soldiers don't like Palestinians.

How is this relevant to Ron Paul?

Kissinger's Doctrine of "Linkage".

Ron Paul is relevant in America & on the InterNet World-Wide.
Ron Paul is standing for election as president of U$A.
The U$ Govt supplies tons of arms & money to the zionist state.
The zionists steal land, harasses & evict the inhabitants.
Exposure of crimes helps in stopping them, = no aid to crimes.

ohh its relevant

Israel is far more powerful and influential then people realize. They're the country that would have him assasinated if he were elected. They're the reason for the media bias. Israel is pure evil and avoids criticizm by claiming they represent the entire jewish population and anyone that queations them is an anti-semite. In reality, linking any govenments actions to entire race or religion will breed racism.

Israel has everything to do with ron paul. They are the enemy. Israel is the biggest issue in american polics and eveeyone is terrified to talk about it.

Don't you see you're buying into propaganda?

RT has anagenda. Stuff like this happens all the time here.

We got that in America.

especially the ex military ones who run up to people and punch them in the back of the head and slam them to the ground and than tazer them while more of them come to get some punches in. i wonder did America influence them or did they Influence our law enforcement.Law enforcement is full of brutal thugs all around the world and i am ready for when people stand up as a community against them.

They influenced our guys.

They influenced our guys. Israel is training US police.


Blessings )o(

And again...

WHY is The US Sending so much money to Israel annually?(why any money at all to foreign countries?)

If they want peace in the middle east, this police state of Israel occupied terrortories needs to stop

"Truth is Treason in an Empire that lies" - Ron Paul

Educate the masses, and win in the end.

because they have nukes.


Just like any other group of

Just like any other group of people, Israel has their crappy people. And they usually come from govt. Why so much anti-Israel propoganda out there? I believe the Israelis are just as fed up with their government as we are with ours.

One world, under government, with power and money for the elite

I don't see any anti-Israely propaganda here

Just a video that exposes a nazi army member(s).

Out there meaning all over

Out there meaning all over the internet. Just alot of anti-Israel talk on the web

One world, under government, with power and money for the elite

Christian Zionists: Defend

Christian Zionists: Defend your master.

not a defence but

The video was recorded by a volunteer of the Israeli Information Center for Human Rights in the Occupied Territories (B'Tselem) on June 29 in Hebron, in the southern part of the West Bank. The organization distributes cameras to Palestinians so that they can film possible instances of abuse carried out by Israeli security forces and settlers
