[ Ed. note – The seventeen-year-old “female terrorist” posed such a threat to the heavily armed Israelis that they just had to shoot her dead. Wasn’t any other choice. Or at least that’s their version of events. I keep waiting for the day when the Israelis shoot a pregnant woman and justify it on the grounds that the fetus was trying to stab someone. ]
