Yahoo! News - Israel Troops Kill 9-Year-Old Palestinian

Yahoo! News - Israel Troops Kill 9-Year-Old Palestinian:

I am the father of a 9 year old boy. There is a dignity and a value to human life that a moral society must respect. Friedrich Nietzsche wrote, "Battle not with monsters lest ye become a monster". this seems to be the case with the Likud Government. In the face of horrendous evil they become in response horrendously evil. If a nation abandons the rule of law then they are in point of fact nothing more than a terrorist state. My point is not to condemn a people but to remind them of what God demands. JBOC

By IBRAHIM BARZAK, Associated Press Writer
BEIT HANOUN, Gaza Strip - Israeli troops shot and killed a 9-year-old Palestinian boy Saturday in the fifth day of an army operation meant to prevent militants from firing rockets at Israeli towns bordering the Gaza Strip (news - web sites).

Ehab Shatat was killed by machine gun fire, apparently from a tank-mounted gun, while standing near his home in Beit Hanoun in northern Gaza, Palestinian hospital and security officials said.
The army said it had fired warning shots at a Palestinian mob that approached soldiers in a threatening manner, but was not aware that anyone was hit. "
