Colonel Eisner: War Hero

Hagit Rein, grieving mother of the late Major B’naya Rein who was killed in the Second Lebanon War called the Army Radio to express her dismay at the way Eisner was being judged by the “media court.”
During that war, B’naya Rein assembled a special force to assist damaged tanks. He was killed on that mission for which he had volunteered, and his body remained in enemy territory. At the command level it was decided that rescuing the body was too dangerous, according to the reservists’ letter. Then it was decided they lacked the necessary resources for a rescue mission.

After three days, Shalom Eisner, who was then commander of an armoured battalion, heard about the abandoned body and said it was unacceptable that the body of an army officer would be lying on the ground while his parents were waiting for him at home. Eisner took a jeep, recall his fellow officers and soldiers, put on a flak jacket and went out to get B’naya. “Surrounded by burned-out tanks, missiles flying in every direction, he just went out into the field, loaded the body and brought it back.”

Lt. Col. Eisner’s supporters expressed their complete faith in him “as a man, as a friend and as a moral commander.”

Postscript:

With 100% certainty the usual Israel-Bashers here will post the video of Eisner hitting an ISM provocateur.

WARNING: That video has been heavily edited - it excludes the footage of Eisner's hand being fractured by the ISM BEFORE the incident with the Danish ISM Provocateur.

The thing is that because the person smacked in the face with a rifle butt (!!!) was white and European the Israeli politicians are tripping over themselves to express regret and 'never again'.
Had it been a Palestinian? Well is there any point in even considering what the reaction would be? There wouldn’t have been one.

This man was a colonel? So if the upper command behaves with all the subtlety of a jack boot what are the ranks up to?

Hoffie, you are making it up as you go along again. Since this video was obviously made from "the Palestinian side of the fence", I can say with complete confidence that you have not seen any more than we all have seen. So you know that it has been edited how? Tut tut...being a naughty boy again.

I wonder if another groveling apology is on the horizon?

Spot on ! I often have the same thought when contemplating the reasons why the psc went through hoops to sling out one of their countless antisemitic holocaust deniers .
Was it because they were essentially an anti racist organization appalled by the fact that so many racists had found refuge in their midst . Or was it because they realized being perceived as a bunch of antisemitic racists louts was ultimately bad for the cause .
Eventually I came to a conclusion shared by those who were expelled . A case of ' Why me Guv' when everyone else is at it ?
I'm sure you were drawn to the same conclusion .

It seems the poor Colonel Eisner has snatched defeat from the jaws of victory.

How did it go, Harvey?

We waz robbed.

Turned over.

Taken to the cleaners.

Lost our deposits.

Lost our self respect.

It's all Altzman's fault.

Something else I have noticed. The IOF never seems to fight 'man to man'. It prefers to slap about unarmed civilians and women.

Hoffman: Could you set up a petition against these haters please?

The National Union of Students - Union of Students Ireland have adopted new policies to boycott Israel and condemn pinkwashing.

Congratulations to Queen's University Belfast's Palestine Solidarity Society.

Gary Spedding, President of QUB Palestine society, who was instrumental in getting the motions past said "I am overwhelmed that the Student movement in Northern Ireland voted to adopt the motion condemning Israel's human rights abuses and to join the Palestinian call to BDS.

This is the first time in History that the NI Student movement has held a policy on the conflict and it is appropriate that this year is it's 40th anniversary which we can now celebrate with a victory for collective human rights.

I see salima (aka suzanna) the Jew hating bigot is in full fury.

Perhaps she does not know but Lt Col Eisner personally saved the life of a Palestinian woman and her unborn child and arranged for their evacuation to an Israeli hospital where the woman gave birth to a healthy child.

Yes the most moral army in the world bar none seeing that it took immediate action unlike the UK which took decades to deal with Bloody Sunday and Col Eisner has been stripped of his post for striking a violent protestor (happens every day in the UK see e.g.http://www.indymedia.org.uk/en/2012/01/491282.html ) - but don't let facts get in the way of your Jew hating.

Thanks Advsr3/Jose

I'm sure the BDS movement will also go from strength to strength. The interesting point is how the student body is becoming more involved. Students grow up to become policy makers and leaders.

Joshua do you honestly think Israel is worried that a few nutjobs in Northern Ireland are going to boycott us. We have been boycotted by the Arab League for over 60 years and see where that has got them and how successful Israel is today!rejoice if you must over the BDS Nazis piddling "victories" meanwhile Israel goes from strength to strength.

Oh and as for pinkwashing - maybe those lovely people in BDS Northern Ireland SS Gruppe will explain to the students who were stupid enough to believe the drivel they were fed why Palestinian gays hold their events in Israel and not in that bastion of democracy Hamistan otherwise known as Gaza where there is not so much pinkwashing as pink bashing (or worse!).

You managed to mention 'Nazi', 'SS Gruppe' 'nutjobs', 'Hamistan', all in a couple of short paragraphs.

You are a model of erudition and obviously not 'worried' at all about the international BDS movement.

What's to be erudite about a bunch of Jew haters who for that reason single out the jewish state for boycott when if they had even an ounce of moral fibre BDS movements would be in full swing aginst real tyrannical despots and human rights abusers. But I was forgetting the BDS movement suppoorts most of those.

By the way for all those not tainted by the BDS malignancy this site is very helpful.

He provides proof of the total and abject failure of BDS to make any headway except perhaps in parts Europe with their long history of anti-Semitism now conventiently dressed up as "anti-Israel".

Hi Josh
I agree that certainly is an accomplishment, managing to include all those unsavory topics in one paragraph . Advis3r must have somehow gate crashed a psc AGM to pick up a few tips . I'm sure he's also had many a sleepless night worrying about the International bds movement. However I think his concern was more about all those lost air fares , good money which could have been used to buy some Kalashnikovs and financed a few rocket producing factories . Still there's always next year to look forward to . In fact I've been advised the thought of it is far better than counting sheep.
Time to change Viva Palestina status to cult . Not my words . Finklesteins !

I agree - nowhere have I supported what Lt Col Eisner did one because it goes against the rules and ethical code of the IDF and secondly because it will now make it even harder in future for the soldiers on the ground to maintain order.

They will have to second guess the anything but peaceful provacateurs and be more concerned about how their actions will be perceived than dealing with violent demonstrations according to the book, which presumably was the ISM's object in the first place.

Having said that and however commendable the alacrity with which the IDF Chief of Staff acted I do believe Lt Col Eisner was entitled to his day in court before being summarily charged convicted and sentenced by the media.
