That soldier is meAya Kaniuk - Mahsanmilim - It’s true, they’re unjust, I am more in the right. Because I’m acting in self-defense, and they’re on the offense.

And I think that this soldier too does what he’s doing especially when it’s what everyone does, and because it’s fun and risky. And he would have done good things too and opposed the bad things, if that was what everyone around him would have done. 23/11/2011

I looked at him, and he, with his chin, pointed at the soldiers, and asked me whether I want – perhaps – to throw the stone. And now I think, just as I did then, that this was an act of unparalleled generosity. 9/11/2011

The procedure was called ‘regulatory selection’ and as the commander of the checkpoint explained: ‘during the regulatory selection we stop the car, check whether it’s a Jew or an Arab, if it`s a Jew - check to see if he is disoriented and warn him from heading on to Ramallah’. When I mentioned the bad historic connotation of the expression, he laconically replied: ‘the army has enough to deal with. It can`t be bothered with every single word…’"14/11/2011
