The controlled media-generated image of Israeli soldiers as “fearless warriors” has taken a hammering with the fact that hundreds of heavily-armed Jewish soldiers cowardly ran away—even those hundreds of feet away—after witnessing the terrorist truck attack in Jerusalem over the past weekend.
The Israeli Defence Force (IDF) has now announced that it will be launching an investigation into why so many of its soldiers fled the scene of the attack, even though they were all heavily armed, and why it was left up to a civilian to shoot the terrorist driver dead.
A report in the Israel National News (Arutz Sheva) said that there were “hundreds of soldiers in the area when the attack occurred,” all about to take part in an educational program about Jerusalem as part of their training.
Surveillance footage of the attack shows hundreds of the Jewish soldiers fleeing in terror, even though they were all heavily armed with what appear to be U.S.-supplied M16A1 assault rifles.
It was left up to tour guide Ethan Rond, who shot and killed the truck driver, even though he himself had been injured, to end the attack.
Rond told Israeli army radio that he had been “shocked that none of the soldiers reacted by shooting the terrorist.”
“I do not know why 40 soldiers did not open fire. I have no doubt that if they had opened fire immediately, we would have had fewer injuries.” Rond said.
The controlled media has carefully crafted an image of the IDF in the popular mind as “brave Sabra soldiers.”
The reality is that Israel’s military prowess is based mainly on American-European supplied technological superiority, and very little on actual personal bravery. YouTube is full of videos illustrating this, a fact which the media carefully ignores.
