Recently, in the West Bank, a young Israeli conscript by the name of Elor Azaria shot and killed a wounded Palestinian prisoner. He was just sentenced in Israeli military court for manslaughter.
Israel is divided about this case. A whole lot of Israelis think this was a case of an inexperienced conscript in a supercharged situation. One man in a BBC report said he thought Azaria's commanders should have backed him up, taking a conviction in his stead if necessary. If they put him into a position for which they didn't prepare him, I'd agree with that assessment.
But while the Israelis are fighting about whether the young man should have been sentenced, there's another issue, and that's the sentence itself:
The argument shouldn't be over whether the conviction should stand, it should be over why there's such a short sentence for manslaughter.
