Budrus: Soldiers in ambush shoot and kill Lafy ‘Awad as he fled, 3 years after Samir ‘Awad killed...


According to B’Tselem’s investigation, the clashes died down within several hours. Most of the Palestinian demonstrators and most of the security forces left the spot. At approximately 4:30 P.M., a group of ten or Palestinian youths approached the barrier again in an area called al-‘Aq, where soldiers shot and killed 16-year-old Samir ‘Awad in January 2013. Lafy ‘Awad, 20, walked first, at the front of the group. When he was some ten or twenty meters from the barrier, he walked past soldiers lying in ambush. They revealed themselves and grabbed ‘Awad. He tried to free himself from their grip and the soldiers responded violently, kicking him and hitting him with their rifles. According to eyewitnesses, soldiers also fired rubber-coated metal bullets, but it is unclear if any of the bullets struck ‘Awad. The other youths shouted at the soldiers and began throwing stones at them. One soldier retained his grip on ‘Awad while the others turned towards the youths and one fired in the air, apparently to deter them. ‘Awad took advantage of the opportunity and started to flee, but had gone only a few steps when a soldier shot him in the back. ‘Awad collapsed and the soldiers retreated. ‘Awad’s friends carried him away.

Palestinian lives are cheap to the IDF...and apparently to the Progressives except for Pakestine crowd.

Think about that as you have your second helping of thanksgiving cheer. There will be no silent stadium for the Palestinian victims of Israeli aggression.

1. Jordanian MPs hold moment of silence for two Palestinian terrorists


Jordanian parliament members held a moment of silence and read Koran verses aloud Wednesday in memory of the two Palestinian terrorists who murdered five Israelis in an attack at a Jerusalem synagogue Tuesday morning.

“Regarding the martyrs who bombed and murdered Zionists, I’m asking the respected parliament to stand up and to read the al-Fatiha [verse from the first chapter of the Quran] to glorify their pure souls and the souls of all the martyrs in the Arab and Muslim nations,” an unnamed MP said, according to a Channel 10 translation of the remarks at the parliament session.

2. Are you posting in the right thread?

The moment of silence held by the Jordanian Parliament were for different people who were terrorists, not the innocent civilian murdered by the IDF.

I suppose it's easy to make that mistake - all Palestinians are terrorists, eh?
