Abuse of Palestinians by Israeli troops the norm, not aberration

Urgent need for peace in Middle East: Pope

Jerusalem: Israeli reservists critical of their military's treatment of Palestinians have released new photos that show Israeli soldiers holding assault rifles to the head of a blindfolded Palestinian man and spray-painting "Be right back" on the wall of a Gaza home.

The images, released Monday by the Breaking the Silence group, are the latest in a series of pictures to surface in recent months showing soldiers mistreating Palestinians.

Breaking the Silence said it published the pictures on its Facebook page to rebut the military's contention that improper conduct by soldiers is an aberration.

"We will continue to release photos every so often to prove that this is the norm, this is how soldiers behave, and this is the price of occupation," said group member Yehuda Shaul. "We lose our ability to see Palestinians as our equals."

The military said it "regretted" that the group published the photos rather than bringing them directly to the army to be investigated. It said the pictures did not reflect the values of the military.

Shaul said the group received the photos two weeks ago and was told they were shot during Israel's war in the Gaza Strip nearly two years ago. He said he could not absolutely confirm that was the case, but said details from the photos, like the military units shown there, supported that claim.

In another development, a Palestinian woman on Monday accused Israeli troops of burning two copies of the Qur'an when they came to arrest her husband during an overnight raid in the northern West Bank.

Sahar Beida, 40, said the troops confined her and her daughter to a separate room when they detained her husband Ismail in the town of Jayyus near Qalqilya.

"When I came out I was shocked to find our Qur'ans were on the front step and had been burned," she said. "They took the Qur'ans from the house and burned them in the alley. We didn't see it happen because my daughter and I were in another room. They locked the door and would not let us talk or move or do anything."
