    Illegal use of force at a checkpoint. Oh, the irony. Now perhaps Simon can open his eyes to the human rights abuses of the many illegal checkpoints, border crossings and occupation of Israel in Palestine. The shoe is really on the other foot in this report. But is this experience enough to persuade him to expose the war crimes of Israel?

    It seem seems quite civil compared to the actions taken by the police during our country's protest, so far nobody's shot a tear gas canister at the face of protester, used water hoses, dogs, or clubbed anyone to death.
