A soldier who studied at the King David's Tomb yeshiva before he was inducted was detained and interrogated for two days before being released, last week, in connection with recent vandalism of a military vehicle at Camp 80, outside Pardes Hana, a little more than halfway between Tel Aviv and Haifa. A tire on the vehicle was punctured and the Hebrew words for "price tag" and "murder the pope" were written on the vehicle.
The soldier, who wears a kippa and sports long sidelocks, was told by special military investigators that they picked his name out of a list and were following him. They also made him write the words written on the vandalized vehicle 15 times to try to match handwriting styles. The soldier, who was advised by Honenu legal-aid lawyer Adi Kedar, denied the accusations and was returned to his unit.
