Video: ‘If you keep waving the stick, we will shoot you’

on 5 Comments

Editor’s Note: This is a video of the scene Ahmad Kabariti reported on during the last Friday of protests of the Great March of Return:

“You! the one with the red T-shirt that has just insulted me, as a the son of a bitch. I promise to respond to you. We are ready for everything.” An Israeli soldier says by loudspeaker to the young men demonstrating in the weekly march on the Gaza border.

But the soldier’s threat did not compel hundreds of young men who’d gathered close to the fence between Gaza and Israel to step back, despite the intensity of tear gas canisters fired by soldiers towards the masked protesters, as well as the heat of the day, reaching 35 degrees Celsius (104 F) east of the town of Khuza’a in Khan Younis in the southern Gaza Strip.

“Give the one-finger salute, guys! ” One of the protesters cheered. And the protesters did so, responding to the threats of the soldier, who characterized them by shirt color, saying: “You the yellow T-shirt guy! I heard you and saw you when you insulted me, ​​I have no problem shooting you as I did during the past Fridays.”

    As the Nazis humiliated and killed Jews so the IDF ( Israel’s Death Force) humiliate and kill Palestinians. A country without a conscience is doomed and Israel has lost its conscience.

      I’ve said it before and I’ll surely say it again.

    When did Israel ever have a conscience?
    In myth.

    Threatening to shoot someone ‘waving a stick’? Nothing more frightening than a stick, except for a kite of course. What cowards, absolute chickenshit cowards. Hiding with WMD, threatening to shoot ‘you in the red shirt’ and holding ‘adult’ accountable. He’s already got his defence ready – I didn’t do nuthin, I wasn’t responsible, it was the ‘adult’ what made me do it.
