שני צלמי עיתונות מטעם רויטרס הוכו על ידי חיילי צה”ל בשעה שסיקרו עימותים בין כוחות צה”ל לפלסטינים בחברון. החיילים הורו לצלמים לפשוט את בגדיהם ולכרוע על ברכיהם במרכז העיר. לטענתם, הם היכו אותם והשליכו לעברם רימוני גז. הצלמים טוענים כי החיילים האשימו אותם כי הם משתייכים לארגון “בצלם” (וואלה!).

Gonen Ginat, deputy editor of [free daily] Israel Hayom, wrote that there are no human beings in the Gaza Strip. According to him, this is not racism but fact: “Only those who do are not part of the human race celebrate the release of those who bomb children. Only those who are not human beings dance in the streets and greet with shrieks of happiness those who quite simply slaughtered humans. This is not racism but a fact: only those who are not human beings hand out candy to passers-by in order to celebrate the return of murderers to their streets.”
