Is it unfortunate that the girl died? Yes. Death is never a great thing. But how you can allow your misguided bigotry to call it murder?
She's in a "no no zone" with a backpack, not listening to instructions.

Children get killed everyday, In Iraq, Palestine, Africa, China, and in many povershed countries, now think about... what if that girl was a prostitute? what if that girl was selling drugs?

army's official account said that Iman was shot for crossing into a security zone carrying her schoolbag which soldiers feared might contain a bomb. It is still not known why the girl ventured into the area
I have to say i side with the IDF on this one. They established a security zone in which patrons knew not to go in there, And in that region children have been known to be suicide bombers. When in a situation like that its easy to look back with 20/20 hindsight and say here is what he did wrong and he did wrong such and such. should this girl have been killed...maybe and maybe not. fact is when your country is attacked over and over with suicide bombers and radical muslims you don't question a little girl with a backpack heading towards you breaching a security zone. Any other country would do the same under the same circumstances Israel is under.

"An Israeli army officer who fired the entire magazine of his automatic rifle into a 13-year-old Palestinian girl and then said he would have done the same even if she had been three years old was acquitted on all charges by a military court yesterday"
The charges were "Illegal use of a firearm" and 'conduct unbecoming an officer" Seems to me murder would have been the correct charge. Now before everyone gets up in arms about "murdering Jews" let me point out this Captain was a Druze NOT a Jew. The IDF is trained to do exactly as this soldier did. This sort of thing happens quire often and most generally charges are never brought.

The majority of us are disgusted by the actions of this soldier and the fact that he was found not guilty.
However in the eyes of a few that somehow makes us bigoted Nazi Jew haters.
How does that work?

Hmm.. Every time I visit this site, there is at least one "Jews are bad killing palestinians" thread. I think this site needs to change it's name to reflect it's clear anti israel bias. I have news for you, siding with the palestinians is a losing bet. But whatever. Apparently you have not been paying attention, terrorists are using women and children to deliver suicide bombs. There is a war going on.
I wont be back to this site. You people are paranoid losers.
