    i feel bad for both the one who fired and the one who was killed. ”Medinat Yisrael” may not be the answer after all.

    Based on your absurd theory, whats the difference then between what happened in Israel and a driver in the USA who accidently strikes and kills a pedestrian in the street? Shall we disband the USA because of that accident? I know with the near instantaneous speed of internet we can respond immediately to anything, but please try to take a deep breath and formulate a thought that is actually meaningful, rather than to instantly respond out of reflex, without even thinking through your response.

    it really was the terrorists. the IDF is under the worst pressure, nobody should have that pressure, and they are cautious because of terrorism that has wreaked the area. they have such a hard time knowing what to do, they were certainly thinking that they were saving lives.

    Very sad

    Agree with comment nine and well said. And too number 14 they wouldn’t fear for there lives and for others if a situation like that or similar would never happen but the fact is that these terrorists always do these things so the soldier had all intentions in the world of saving all the innocents around him. I bet he feels so bad right now about killing a fellow Jew and I doubt hel ever get over killing a rabbi so ya this is very sad my heart goes out to the family and all but don’t blame this soldier… Read more »

    I think it is really sad that a jew killed another jew but ppl. shouldn’t really blame the IDF soldiers because they’re doing their job by keeping us safe and i’d call it a huge mistake that ppl. should just bevery carefull to do.Baruch dayan haemes.
