In 2012, Israel's Military Police Criminal Investigation Division (MPCID) produced none. MPCID received 240 complaints. Seventy-eight investigations followed. Another 25 pertained to 2011 criminality.

Israel-style probes are whitewashes. Accountability virtually never follows. Palestinians are denied justice. They have no rights whatever. 

In the second half of January alone, Israeli security forces murdered six unarmed Palestinians. They did so with impunity.

Breaking the Silence (BTS) explains. Israeli combat veterans speak freely. They served since the start of the second Intifada. They refuse any longer to stay silent. 

They expose daily life in Occupied Palestine. Their testimonies bear witness to police state harshness. Daily crimes against humanity are committed with impunity.

BTS member Avner Gvaryahu spoke for others saying :

"I participated in dozens of operations, and after reading hundreds of eyewitness accounts that we have collected over the years at our organization, Breaking the Silence, the real, flexible rules of engagement have become apparent to me, allowing opening fire on unarmed civilians." 

"More seriously, sometimes the fire is designed from the beginning to 'create friction' with the Palestinian population."

"In effect, there is no distinction between a Palestinian who fires at us and a Palestinian who throws a rock at us, a stone thrower and a demonstrator or a demonstrator and someone who simply does not obey our orders or gets insolent."
