Israel soldier who killed wounded Palestinian crowdfunds a book

Azaria was convicted of the March 2016 shooting of 21-year-old Palestinian Abdel Fattah Al-Sharif  

Elor Azaria, the former Israeli soldier who killed a wounded Palestinian in Hebron, is crowdfunding a “tell-all” book, reported Haaretz.

The book’s title is “From Dark to Light: One Shot in Hebron”, and apparently promises to “reveal the full story of the episode that continues to this day to touch the rawest nerves of Israeli society”.

The crowdfunding campaign’s range of suggested donations starts at just 50 shekels up to 3,500 shekels ($14 to $970).

For the smallest contribution of 50 shekels, you’ll receive “a letter of thanks emailed to you for your donation toward the publication of Elor Azaria’s book”. For 200 shekels, meanwhile, “you can get a personal note” from Azaria.

However, for 800 shekels, the donor receives a copy of “Elor Azaria’s book and a double ticket for a fascinating tour of the scene of the shooting in Hebron led by Charlie Azaria, a retired police investigator [and Elor’s father]”.

Azaria was convicted of the March 2016 shooting of 21-year-old Palestinian Abdel Fattah Al-Sharif, following an alleged attempted attack on soldiers in the occupied West Bank city of Hebron. Abdel Fattah was lying wounded when Azaria shot him in the head, events captured on camera.

Azaria eventually served just nine months in jail. He has expressed no remorse for his actions, and became a cause-celebre for far-right activists.
