Elor Azaria [left] took the life of a man who was no threat, received a hero’s welcome, a reduced charge, and a lenient sentence. The Prime Minister of Israel called for his pardon because he and his family had been through enough. His sentence has been reduced to 9 months, though he shows no remorse for what he did.
Contrast Ahed Tamimi [right], who slapped an IDF soldier in full armor (after Israeli soldiers had shot her cousin in the face), was charged with assault and a multitude of other crimes, and has just reached a plea bargain that will give her a total prison time of 10 months.
Ergo, slapping a soldier is about as bad as killing a Palestinian.
IMEMC News: Elor Azaria, the Israeli soldier convicted of shooting and killing a Palestinian in the head while the Palestinian was lying on the ground wounded, had his sentence reduced to nine months by an Israeli judge this week.
Last February, Azaria was sentenced to eighteen months for the 2016 killing, which was captured on camera by a bystander. He began his prison time in August 2017. With the new sentence reduction, he will be released in May.
