NGO Monitor President Professor Gerald Steinberg on Monday said that the Israeli military and political establishments responded appropriately to an IDF officer striking a pro-Palestinian activist in the face with the butt of an M-16 rifle. “The quick and clear responses of the Israeli government and military officials to the incident demonstrate that credible evidence of violations is dealt with in a professional and responsible manner,” he said.

The NGO Monitor president also condemned the International Solidarity Movement, which filmed and distributed the video, saying that the organization had a history of endorsing violence against Israelis.
