The man has got a slap on the wrist for threatening to kill a man because he didn't want to be punished for going AWOL and to add insult to injury he isn't even kicked out the army just demoted. If a civilian with a gun pointed a gun at somebody because they had a problem that civilian would be thrown into jail for a long time but in the army he gets 40 days. He should be in jail for at least 4 years for an offence so serious. PUNISH HIM NOW

We don't know why he freaked out. Could be because he's a 20 year old being worked half to death to keep a country of 7+ million safe from constant attacks. Could be social pressure, which exists on IDF. Could be denied leave to see family. Please don't be so judgmental, especially if you do miluim.

You are a moron. In my case soldier pointed gun at me . He wasn't under my command. After investigation was complited we found out that he was terrorized by one of the officers.In the end the soldier served one month in prison for pointing loaded weapon.The officer was demoted to O and served few years in jail.

In olden days the rule was if you shoot the leader you take his spot. Nowadays that doesn't go over, except in some countries.
7. Get him some counselling

The man needs some anger management counselling or he will be a menace to his family and society at large if he exhibits such serious lack of judgement whilst in a rage.

psychological problem and should not serve.He must be treated. In this situation he is more of a threat for the IDF,than any use.
