The Minister was reacting to yesterday’s proceedings in the trial of Elor Azaria.

Liberman stated yesterday in a visit to Ariel University that, “No matter what, we will come out on the side of the soldier, even if he made a mistake; it is our duty to support and provide assistance.”

In response to the criticism the Minister has received from members of the left, he posted a statement on his Facebook page which read, “Let me make it clear, without interpretations or misunderstanding, yesterday I was clear and succinct: Every soldier who is in a situation of combat or terror, even if he made a strategic error, even if he was in the wrong and under immeasurable pressure, must have the support of the public and the administration.”

Regarding the pending evacuation of the town of Amona Liberman wrote, “All are equal under the law. Anyone who speaks about respecting the rule of law must respect the decisions made by the Supreme Court, not only when they rule against Jewish settlements but also when they call for the evacuation of Palestinian trespassers.”
