At least offer the killer the chance to take his own life.
Bring back capital punishment ; It is immoral not to, as refusing to do so places many innocent lives at risk
2. not at all, not death penalty for terrorists!
they enjoy death, they are happy to die as martyrs ... these people have to suffer for tortures in prisions for the rest of their miserable life !
3. The family doesn't look like it's particularly rejoicing
4. The murder of Tomer Hazan
The families of the murderers should be evicted immediately and any benefits they receive from Israel should be rescinded immediately, whether they condemn the murder or not!!

5. Any excuse to get Islam off the hook.
"It was just a criminal act..." Right, the dirtbag lures the soldier to the middle of nowhere to rob him of what, a few shekels? Maybe his watch? Hardly. This was a well-planned, premeditated murder, nothing less. The murderer's family can make up excuse after excuse, but Nidal planned and executed the murder- and should pay with his life for it. I hope the IDF checks the phone records of Nidal and any computers that are in his house. Were other Islamists waiting in the field? Seems likely. The family should know, and all Arabs should take to heart, that if you murder an Israeli in a 'nationalistic' crime, your house will be destroyed and your family kicked out of the country. If you won't act like a sane human being for your own sake, then consider the hardship your act will have on your family. Nidal's body, after he's judicially executed, should be cremated and the ashes dumped into the ocean, so that no trace of him will remain. That should be the sentence for all terrorist murderers. Then Israel would never be in the position of having to release them in order to please American puppetmasters like Obama and Kerry.
6. "How could he do something like this to someone he knew?"
How ironic it is that this sentence doesn't end at THIS but continues to say TO SOMEONE HE KNEW!
A showcase for Arab mentality, par excellence.
Murdering someone is OK unless a few insignificant and frequently overruled restrictions apply.
7. Yasha Koach, David!
To David in Hartford: "Pre-meditated" is correct, and the kelev NIdal deserves The Chair. BTW, what's a nice Conservative boychick like you doing in the liberal mire of CT? C'mon down to SC!
8. I used to be against the death penalty
Particularly in cases like this because muslims and arabs will use any death of their people as a martyrdom angle and call this person a hero.
This man, Nidal Amar, committed this crime with the motivation to get his brother released from prison.
That by itself is horrible but explainable. However he didn't want to use a live soldier to make the trade, he wanted to use the body of a soldier. His entire plan was to kill someone and ransome the body.
This kind of ideology makes me sick.
And with all the people being released from prison recently who have blood on their hands, there is a chance that once day this Nidal Amar might be released in such a prisoner release for some political purpose.
This is a travesty in the making. We give out sentences of multiple life terms... what is the purpose of that? No one is going to serve more than one lifetime in prison. If you get sentenced to more than one life sentence, we should just put them to death. It will save money and we don't have to worry about releasing a murderer in the future.
Who cares if he is declared a hero. Give the Palestinians a million heroes to the point that the names of the individual ones are forgotten.

9. Death penalty
People say that the reason we don't use the death penalty here is because it not being Jewish, and that it is against the 10 commandments.
We are supposed to observe and keep the sabbath too, and a lot of the time we have automated systems or a shabbas goy used to get around different things. If that's the argument, then I'm sure we could automate it or find a goyish executioner.

10. Let this be a lesson to all young Israelis
Coexist groups mean well , but they fool themselves. At every turn the Arab wants to make the Jew feel guilty for being a Jew and for taking back what is rightfully his.
It is time to be frank and honest. We can coexist as long as you stay on your side of the fence and keep to yourselves. Eventually you will need to be relocated to Jordan, Egypt, Syria, Arabia, and wherever else you originate from. The time is near. It is the Will of Allah. It is the Will of Hashem. Your grip on our land will be lost forever. Mashiach Ben David is at the door.
11. Thank God for hell
Thank God for creating hell. There are people who are so evil, by their own actions, they buy their ticket to an eternity of suffering in hell.
12. Not nationslistic.!. He murdered to have brother released
Not nationslistic.!. He murdered to have terrorist brother released.
