According to a poll released by Israel today newspaper, 63% of Jewish Israelis believe that soldier Elor Azaria, who shot dead an injured Palestinian last year in Hebron, should be released.

The report, published this morning,  shows that 63% of Jewish Israelis are in favor of a pardon, while 24% are against leniency. 13% of respondents said that they “don’t know.”

On Wednesday, Elor Azaria was sentenced to 18 months in prison, almost a year after he shot dead a Palestinian youth in the head, while he was wounded and laying on the ground motionless.

The outrageous shooting, which went international, was documented on video by a rights group, B’Tselem.

The soldier received much controversial support from the Israeli people, and huge criticism both by Palestinians and the international community, who confirm that the shooting was an extrajudicial execution against an incapacitated person in daylight.

In addition, the family of the Palestinian victim, Abdul-Fattah Al-Sharif, who was killed, says that the soldier’s court was only a sarcastic play, and was held only because the soldier was documented on video, not because of the justice system, who gradually accused him of manslaughter (unintentional murder).

The prosecutors demanded 3-5 years of prison for the soldier, while his attorney, and other Israeli leaders, including PM Netanyahu and Education Minister, Bennett, demanded his immediate release.

Transcription made from The Miko's Speeches

This is a beautiful church so once again thank you to the pastor for allowing us to use this is really beautiful and thank you all for being here tonight and and for caring enough to take the time and listen and participate and be active I always begin my remarks with a disclaimer and that disclaimer is this if anybody here came hoping to hear a balanced presentation then they're going to be sorely disappointed I say this because a lot of things that you're about to hear tonight are difficult to hear and also because I don't believe that a balanced presentation on this topic is possible anybody that cares enough to speak about this probably has a very strong opinion one way or the other almost everybody has feelings and strong emotions on this issue one way or the other for me it's deeply personal and the issue itself is not a balanced issue there is no balance in this issue so therefore I say this because there cannot be a balanced presentation on this and I think if anybody claims that their presentation is balanced they're either misleading themselves or the misleading of their audience this whole issue of Israel and Palestine is covered in so much myth and there's so much there's so much double standard when people talk about this issue and I'll give you two examples

Don't know if you heard Bibi Netanyahu speech at the United Nations I heard it not live but after he actually delivered it and he began and he began it with probably the two most striking examples of myth and double standard and he began by talking about the right of return of the Jews to their ancient homeland and of course the Jews that returned so-called returned to their homeland were not exactly the the same Jews who were expelled from their homeland right because these were expelled a couple of thousand years before that these were not their descendants either because they this is business has been a very long time so these are people the people that actually came back so to speak are people that claim some kind of a heritage some kind of a connection a relationship to the ancient Hebrews and they claimed that they had the right to return to their homeland and this was this is what Zionism was about and this is expected this was you know accepted by the world as the right they had the right to return now if we talk about the right of return of one nation you'd expect that there would be if we accept it as a principle than
