"Golani will bring you a log to stick up your ass."

IDF troops film themselves humiliating bound Palestinian

By Haaretz Service 07/11/2008

Channel 10 on Thursday released footage taken by Israel Defense Forces soldiers of themselves humiliating a bound and blindfolded Palestinian man at a West Bank checkpoint.
The footage shows the Palestinian kneeling and repeating sentences given to him to say by the soldiers, who belong to the Golani infantry brigade.

One of the lines is: "Golani will bring you a log to stick up your ass."


As the detainee repeats the words, the soldiers are heard laughing raucously in the background.

Later Thursday, the army issued a harsh condemnation of the troops' actions.

"The IDF views this incident gravely and condemns it. Behavior of this kind goes against IDF values and its soldiers' expected norms of behavior," the IDF Spokesman's Unit said in a statement it released.

The IDF said it was unaware of the incident until it received the clip from Channel 10, after which it immediately began an investigation.

"With the emergence of all of the details, it will be decided whether to take steps and which [to take]. The IDF denunciates this behavior," the statement said.
