Israeli policeman indicted for beating Palestinian-American teenager

For the record, and because it is far less likely to be widely reported than was the original incident last July:

Israel’s Justice Ministry says police have charged an officer who was filmed beating a Palestinian-American teenager during a violent protest in July.

The ministry said Wednesday a police investigation concluded that “evidence was found supporting the guilt of the police officer suspected of severe violent crimes.”

Good. Well done to Israeli law enforcement.

I’ll be glad to give credit to any media outlets or websites which are generally hostile to Israel, which reported on the original beating, and which now report this.


Update: Via Andrew C, here is a report about the indictment on an anti-Israel website.
