Emily HenochowiczAccording to Henochowicz, one policeman shot a canister directly at her face, shattering her jaw and causing her to lose her left eye. A Haaretz reporter witnessed the incident.

Follwoing her her treatment at Hadassah Hospital in Jerusalem, Henochowicz's father, who had traveled from the U.S., was handed a bill for NIS 14,000. Under advice from his lawyer, Michael Sfard, he asked the Defense Ministry cover the expense, but officials refused.

In justifying the refusal, the Defense Ministry claimed the tear gas was not fired directly at Henochowicz.

"The canister ricocheted at her after it rebound off a concrete barrier and changed direction - it was not shot directly at her," the ministry said in a statement drafted by lawyer Sharon Zimmerman. The statement also accused Henochowicz of putting herself at risk by voluntarily participating in a breach of the peace.

TVNL Comment: According to Israel, participating in protests is considered breaching peace. How is that for freedom? How is that for a democracy? Why do we still call Israel a democracy when they continuously claim otherwise. They call themselves a Jewish state. Weill, that would make them a theocracy. You know...like Islamic nations. Well, theocracies are not democracies. But we keep repeating mantras. Brainwashing. Wake up folks.
