The Israelis indeed internalised the Shoa experience. Very much like notorious Ivan the Terrible from Treblinka who reportedly unleashed his dog against camp inmates, the IDF Border Guard employs dogs against Palestinian demonstrators and Israeli political opposition.
Ynet reported today that Security forces arrived near the village of Dir Nizam accompanied by the Border Guard’s canine unit. “They chased us with vicious dogs,” one of the protesters said.
Israeli security officials say the new tactic helped spot and detain stone throwers. “The dogs help us apprehend people without hurting them. They are not attack dogs – they are patrol dogs trained to use their sense of smell and vision to conduct short chases, pinning the suspects to the ground until the soldiers arrive.”
As usual, the Israeli official lies. Watch this film and judge for yourself.
The Border Guard’s Dog Unit includes a small number of fighters and Belgian Malinois Shepherd dogs, which are purchased in Europe and go through a prolonged training period alongside an assigned officer. At the end of the day, Israel insists on becoming a qualified EU Member. Maybe using European dogs is indeed the way forwards for the Israelis.
One protestor told Ynet. “The IDF wants to set dogs on us, which reminds us of a dark time in the history of the Jewish people” I may as well mention that nothing in Jewish history is as remotely cruel and vicious as the current Israeli barbarism for the brutality performed by the Jewish state is a collective affair. It is committed by a popular army in the name of the Jewish people.
