1. Sure!
Ed ,   USA   (09.12.16)
You bet. We should absolutely support IDF soldiers. You do this by keeping up the standards of behavior, and not eroding it in the face of political pressure from settlers. You give them clear rules of engagement and if a soldier gets out line, you prosecute them while giving them counsel. You make it clear that executing disarmed and immobilized persons is against the rule of law even in combat, and you support their future dignity by making sure that future soldiers can say they did their job as well as possible. You make this happen by prosecuting wrong behavior so that other soldiers don't make the same mistakes.
2. Gov. Support?
Jew-C ,   JewLandia (Israel)   (09.13.16)
Is Minister of Defense, Corporal (ret) MK Mr. Lieberman intending that the government should support Sgt. Elior Azaria in the same manner that he as head of the Yisrael Beitenu party has supported members of his party list?

Let us then remember how he supported:
Esterina Tartman
Anastasia Michaeli
Faina Kirshenbaum
Yitzhak Aharonovich and
Daniel "Danny" Ayalon amongst several others.

The treatment Minister of Defense, Corporal (ret) MK Mr. Lieberman has given his former party members is enough to strike fear in the hearts of many...Elior Azaria should take care to be sure that "Gov Support" is really what he wants from Minister of Defense, Corporal (ret) MK Mr. Lieberman!
3. This Lieberman is one hot-air balloon. Land-swaps? With whom
why?! The "Triangle" should leave for Arabia, where it rightfully belongs and we should get on with reclaiming Arab- occupied parts of Land of Israel. Nobody else will do it for us.
4. Q&A...

maybe you should ask how the Basic Law Knesset(Article 16A) stipulates that anyone with dual nationality cannot pledge allegiance as knnesset member unless his foreign citizenship has been revoked whilebZoabi is perceived as Palestinian, because of her position in the knnesset the State of Israel is perceived as a legal entity which allows enemies of the State to hold positions of power within the government to use freedom of speech to incite.
5. the state must always back soldiers
steve ,   beer sheva   (09.13.16)
Did that include those of the Wehrmacht that murdered Jews?
I thought that Lieberman was a pragmatist but decent. Now I realize he is an immoral fool.
