  1. Thankfully the Palestinian peace seeker is no more!
    Now the PA can take Israel to the Hague for excessive force! The poor kid thought they were two watermelons. Why did he have to be shot!!
    America can complain that an American weapon was used and they weren’t consulted first!
    The UN can condemn Israeli use of uneven force and demand to know why they didn’t first call arab gunners to stand by at the shooting so that they could also shoot!

    The soldier’s names for Tehillim, please!

  2. May hashem heal them completely! Good thing soldier shot him dead ,one less mouth to feed and he would have been imprisoned for a year then freed…….then become a seasoned terrorist celebrity
