  1. in the official documents they write that it’s amale soldier
    the did not even take the time to verify if it’s a male or female

  2. Credit where credit is due … thanks Richard for once again being that lone voice!

    “Our hearts and prayers are with the family in this time of sorrow, and we know our pain is understood and felt by many families in Israel who’ve lost their dear ones while serving the nation,” said the statement, as translated by independent blogger Richard Silverstein. “Our loss is made even more bitter in light of hard questions which still have not been answered.”

  3. The shots should have been heard; The base should have been sealed; All officers should be on report for dereliction of duty. The gun should be secured; forensics for fingerprints, blood type, etc.

  4. Finally, the investigating team of officers should have immediately (in less than 24 hours) been convened from personnel not from that base. Evidence has undoubtedly been contaminated and/or mishandled in custody.

  5. Black Isreali–you are in a big trouble!!!! It was better for you to stay in Ethiopia–at least Ethiopians –they fear God!!! Look what the evil people are doing to you!!!

  6. When people fear the government there is tyranny;
    When the government fears the people there is liberty.

    1. @ Alexis: I wish that were true, but it isn’t necessarily. Many authoritarian governments fear the people. But if governments have a fear of actually being held accountable by the people then there can be liberty, though it’s not a given.

  7. Help us spread the word before they close the case:

    On February 21, 2015, while on active duty in the Israeli Defense Force (IDF), Toveet Radcliffe, a 19 year old African Hebrew became the first African American to die while serving in the IDF.

    For nearly an entire year the Israeli army would not tell her family who was responsible for her death. After 11 months, the Israeli army submitted a report claiming that no other person was involved with Toveet’s death, thus claiming that Toveet took her own life. Toveet’s family and friends know that she would never take her own life. When her family asked to see the investigation materials, the IDF took 3 1/2 weeks to provide the report, leaving only one month to review all of the materials before the IDF closes the case.

    An examination of the materials reveals serious failures by the army’s investigation division including evidence that is contradictory, has been tampered with and censored. You can watch the video which shares these discrepancies at: https://www.facebook.com/khayab1/videos/10153626062300852/

    On Sunday, March 27, 2016 the IDF will officially close the case, thereby effectively closing any opportunity to appeal the IDF ruling of suicide.
