EU ‘DIPLOMATS’ CAUSE RUCKUS WITH IDF IN SAMARIA, ONE PUNCHES ISRAELI SOLDIER IN THE FACE…….

 

New diplomacy by EU matches their old bureaucratic style.

UPDATE: IDF blog cuts through the propaganda as well.

This is what we know [the facts]:
Yesterday, following an illegal attempt by Palestinians and foreign activists to erect tents in Samaria’s Hemdat area, in the northern Jordan Valley, security personnel responded to the site with the intent to implement a standing Supreme Court Decision. At the site, Palestinian and foreign activists violently objected, throwing stones and striking Israeli security forces. The security personnel contained the violence with riot dispersal means, seized the tents and detained three Palestinians who were the main instigators, forcefully objecting to the activity. Reports that foreign diplomats abused their diplomatic privileges are currently being reviewed and, if required, complaints will be filed with the relevant authorities.

Marion Fesneau-Castaing in action

EU apparatchiks attempt at trying to create an international incident somewhere in Samaria, by supplying Bedouin Arabs with tents and poles in an attempt to circumvent and Israeli Supreme Court ruling. What ensued was typical thug behavior of these ‘activists’ as well as EU ‘diplomats’., one punching an IDF soldier in the face.

Video: French diplomat punching IDF soldier in the face (updated)

Over the weekend, there have been accusations that the IDF “manhandled” NGOs and diplomats trying to build an illegal Bedouin village in Area C.Here is the IDF version of the events:

Yesterday, following an illegal attempt by Palestinians and foreign activists to erect tents in Samaria’s Hemdat area, in the northern Jordan Valley, security personnel responded to the site with the intent to implement a standing Supreme Court Decision. At the site, Palestinian and foreign activists violently objected, throwing stones and striking Israeli security forces. The security personnel contained the violence with riot dispersal means, seized the tents and detained three Palestinians who were the main instigators, forcefully objecting to the activity. Reports that foreign diplomats abused their diplomatic privileges are currently being reviewed and, if required, complaints will be filed with the relevant authorities.

Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesperson, Paul Hirschson, said a formal complaint might be filed with the French over the involvement of French diplomat, Marion Castaing. “If she did participate then a formal complaint will be filed because that is not the way diplomats behave,” he said.

The IDF notes that a PressTV video shows that the French diplomat Marion Fesneau-Castaing actually punching an IDF soldier (0:52) of this video. A colleague actually tries to hold her back.

I turned it into an animated GIF:

This video of the incident, lightly edited, shows that the IDF only acted when it was provoked. Soldiers politely shooed away the activists until they kept pushing past them. It also shows some activists smiling after getting “manhandled” because they wanted it to be caught on camera.
