Imagine that: Israeli soldiers and police treat Israelis nicer than Palestinians

Who would have guessed? Obviously not the reporter who wrote this:
But the eviction operation over the past two days showed a soft face of the army that is unfamiliar to outsiders. They refused to rise to the bait of the worst verbal attacks -- epithets such as "Nazi" and "terrorist" were common -- and showed restraint and even tenderness toward their abusers
The fact that their abusers weren't Arabs didn't have anything to do with it. Israeli soldiers and police have just coincidentally and recently turned over a new leaf.
