    This week he has reported that the Israeli military have arrested the Red Crescent team, a photographer reporting on the non-violent action, and a member of the Israeli human rights group, B'Tselem.

    The Israeli military have confirmed that the seven arrests have occurred, but have failed to report that five of those arrested were paramedics working for the Red Crescent.

    The Red Crescent are the Muslim equivalent of the Christian Red Cross, and provide necessary medical care at the sites of various non-violent protests in the West Bank to those suffering from the effects of tear gas inhalation and rubber bullet fire; tactics regularly used by the Israeli military under the claims of riot dispersal tactics.

    Providing medical care is being dangerous?

    Ya cause of course those red crescent guys were just doing their job? Get really, remember Lebanon, green hat guy? He went from place to place with his ambulance and took fake pictures of damage to his ambulance and him supposedly dead in different places.

    Failing evidence the Israelis had no reason to arrest them why do you ASSUME they did not?
