MK Calls for 'Renewed Thinking' Over Soldiers' Protests


MK Aliza Lavie (Yesh Atid) on Wednesday night called for “renewed thinking” in the wake of the viral Facebook campaign by IDF soldiers in support of "David the Nahlawi," the soldier who was punished this week for defending himself against Arab provocateurs.

“Renewed thinking is required,” wrote Lavie on her Facebook page, adding, “There is a storm on the internet over ‘David the Nahlawi’ who cocked his weapon towards a Palestinian boy. Apparently, David's punishment by his commanders stems from discipline-related incidents that are not related to the weapon-cocking incident.”
