I for one find it difficult to imagine how such a story could be so quickly contrived by a group of soldiers. Especially the amazing allegation that tapes were edited by soldiers in his unit to support this supposed conspiracy.
A more likely explanation would be that the allegations 'including' the brutal killing of the girl, were true but the IDF and it's military court decided the attendant bad publicity warranted a cover up.
Then why was the coverup not trumped at full volume? What is the point of making a cover-up and then hiding it from everyone? Clearly the fact that he was set up is quite the burried piece of information by the IDF.
Maybe, you're right I just can't see the logic in it. I think its much more likely that they wanted to cover up the amount of racism that exists within the ranks of their soldiers. Racism is probably what leads to most of the atrocities against the palestinians
you have a source showing where the alleged perpetrators of this conspiracy have been charged in relation to what would be a very serious offence? I would be more inclined to believe in this conspiracy allegation if that were the case.
I have been attempting to do some reasearch into the topic, however it is quite difficult to find any information. If you find anything let me know.
