MK Miri Regev (Likud), claimed that the dismissal of deputy commander of the Jordan Valley Brigade, Lieutenant Colonel Shalom Eisner, following an incidence in which he assaulted a Danish activist, was strange.  ”A grave injustice is being done here to someone who simply tried to defend the state.  This event will cause military commanders to hesitate to conduct their stated missions due to the possibility they will be dismissed”.

The military reporter for Channel 10 news, Or Heller, had received death threats following the publication of the recording of a conversation between Lt. Colonel Shalom Eisner and Hagit Rhein, mother of Major Benaya Rhein who was killed during the Second Lebanon War, in which Eisner sharply attacked the IDF Chief of Staff. “In the last few days I’ve received death threats,” said Heller, “I’ve had calls and hang-ups, received emails with assorted wishes that I die in one way or another. They call me a Nazi”. Over the last few days there has been a few publications by, among others, the Latma website and the My Israel movement, who launched a viral internet video against him. At the same time, a petition was initialized, asking to expel Heller from his position.
