Webmaster's Commentary: 

This video was sent to me without explanation. When I posted it to YouTube it was deleted for "terms of use violation" even before it finished conversion. This video appears to show an Israeli soldier shooting a bound and blindfolded Palestinian.

Anyone have any further info on this video or why YouTube would be in such a hurry to kill it?

The video has been identified, and yes it is an authentic video and does indeed show an Israeli soldier shooting a bound and blindfolded Palestinian. The incident, which took place last year, prompted outrage around the world.

Side note, what Israel means when they say "Rubber bullet" is not the over-sized soft crowd dispersal devices used in other countries but a steel bullet with a rubber coating. At close range it is capable of inflicting serious injury.

This brings us back to YouTube. The video is confirmed authentic. The human rights group which video taped it intended it for public distribution. There is no copyright violations issue, yet YouTube deleted this video from my channel for "terms of use violation."

Why?
