    It's alleged in the article that the soldier committed a war crime, and the murdered Palestinian committed an act of terrorism. It's interesting that you don't think what the Palestinian did adds "fuel to the fire in between Palestinian and Israeli people". You got a problem with Israelis?

    So someone stabs an armed Israeli soldier and is surprised when he is killed? K.

    He stabbed a soldier, he became a combatant at that point I'm not particularly sympathetic. The flip side is the soldier was wrong and needs to be punished.

    That shooting is a rogue act that should be punished. The murder by knives started late last year. Tensions are high.

    Geneva convention law doesn't apply to Israel?

    As bad as the video is, consider the possibility that the videographer was initially out to score a vid of murdered Israeli soldiers by knife stuck in the neck.

    Really? Because the history of the region is that Israel has given up much of the land they conquered during wars.

    Since suicide belts are favorite piece of Palestinian kit the threat is not completely neutralized until it receives two to the head. Legality is another matter, but it was an entirely rational act of self-preservation. And it still doesn't account for the possibility of a remotely-detonated suicide vest.

    Cold blooded murder indeed, stabbing notwithstanding. And the indifference of the other Israeli soldiers is as disturbing as the actual murder: it means it's the official policy.

    Nonsense, that's just a lame excuse. If they had thought the guy could have worn a suicide vest, they wouldn't be standing next to it so calmly. Also, it can be activated with a timer, with a dead man switch, by phone... So it's just a pathetic excuse to justify a summary execution, you've reached a new low.

    Only bad part about that shoot was that they couldn't make a [​IMG]
    joke afterwards. Don't expect compassion, when just a few minutes prior you(the terrorist) you attempted to end the life of his comrades.

    To put things in perspective, the soldier was arrested and will be punished. If the roles are reversed and a Palestinian pops an Israeli soldier in the grape when he's laying on the ground moving around, he gets a parade.

    He was wounded, on the ground, unarmed. He should have been arrested, taken to a hospital, questioned, sentenced, punished. This is murder. I'd expect a summary execution from a crowd, a militia, even myself, but being professional soldiers, with an ambulance on site, this becomes state terrorism (it doesn't matter who commited it). His was an act of terrorism, and the soldiers' too. And again, the fact that the 10+ soldiers there thought it was standard procedure is even more disturbing.

    You're deducing "official Israeli policy" from one man's expression on a blurry cell phone video. That's the most foolish statement I've ever read in PSRI.

    At the cost of how many dollars and only to be released and attempt another attack.

    Seriously? Your initial argument is that this was justified because it was cheaper? The latter argument is that he should have been punished for a crime he has yet to commit (and may not have ever committed)?

    Frightening.

    He's talking about the money we give them in "aid" since the Truman administration.

    No, from one soldier discharging his weapon, killing someone unarmed, and nobody:
    reacting to stop him
    disarming him
    checking the terrorist/victim.

    They just look at him and keep doing their business like a summary execution is the normal thing in that situation while the ambulance takes away the body.
    Also, let me correct myself, I meant "unofficial"

    No. He was put down for the attack he had already committed. Funny the video doesn't show the attack and only the aftermath.
