1. Tough
Gary   (01.07.11)
That war . The Palestinians want jihad and this is the result When millions are killed in Kurdistan, Tibet, Sudan, Sri Lanka, Afghanistan etc no one bats an eyelid
2. Shoot First Ask Later
Hakim ,   Palestine   (01.07.11)
They come at 3 o'clock in the morning and do as they please. They kick the door down, smash your house, steal your money and valuables, and when you defend your home they shoot you claiming they were searching for militants. This is the IDF. A filthy lowlife all of them - male and female.
3. Khol Akhavod
Sarcastic jew ,   Tel Aviv   (01.07.11)
Khol Akhavod Le TZAHAL ,its his fault for moving in his sleep.
4. Did Arabs Terrorists ever apologize for the Hebron Massacre
on 8/23/1929 for the murder of 67 INNOCENT Jews? We are at war and Israel does not have to apologize when killing terrorists.
5. If it will happen then ,,,
Westbanker ,   Nablus   (01.07.11)
it will be a Fake punishment in front of cameras ... Democracy of Israel is not applied on the occupied people of the west bank!!!!
6. "regrets"
Michael ,   Haifa   (01.07.11)
the most moral army in the world does it yet again
7. Horrible
Tyler ,   Guymon United States   (01.07.11)
No one deserves to die in their sleep, yet alone an old, ill man...
8. "...the soldiers thought..."
eporue ,   europe   (01.07.11)
they also thought, the can coke was a knife...
9. It will never happen with the Palestinians
Brian Cohen ,   Judean Peoples Front   (01.07.11)
The Palestinians never punish any Palestinian who kills Israeli civilians. In fact, the Palestinian Authority still pays reward pensions to the families of suicide bombers and gives out hero posters of the killers. To #5... of course full democracy of Israel is not applied to Arabs in the West Bank - neither do you Palestinians ever do it.
10. #2 regrettable but
Israel Israeli ,   Tel Aviv   (01.07.11)
It is regrettable if the reports are true that an innocent man died, but don't forget one thing. He would still be alive if Abbas hadn't released the murderers.
11. re#1 I feel the same when a suicide attack in Israel happens
Cali Cal ,   Los Angeles, USA   (01.07.11)
tough war is war
12. Expressing "regret" is not enough.
Ben Alofs ,   Bangor   (01.07.11)
Alon has chutzpah! "You must see it from the perspective of the force, which arrived to arrest terror activitst, after a quick standing operation procedure." Why come in the middle of the night?! After all the "terror activists" were not high level "terrorists" hiding out somewhere with guns blazing. These were civilan Hamas members, who previously had been arrested by the PA on SUSPICION of "security" related incidents. There was no apparent evidence to charge them and as such they were still innocent until proven guilty. They did not escape from jail, they were released! A trigger happy force of Israeli soldiers burst into a house and shoots a 65 year old man IN HIS BED. It may have been mistaken identity, but it was still murder. These soldiers killed the wrong person and should be punished for this. "Regrets" given when these kind of incidents, where innocents get killed, happen all the time are no longer acceptable and sound hypocritical. If you want to prevent this from happening in the future you should punish the killers. Defending them/shielding them off from the course of justice only deepens the war crimes Israel commits against the Palestinian people.
13. #11, wow
DR ,   Florida, USA   (01.07.11)
You must be one of those looney liberals who actually compares and gives equal moral ground to terrorists and those who go after them to protect innocent civilians? Of course the IDf is not perfect (the US army has killed innocent civilians by accident too) but your comment is sick and ignorant!
14. #2, hakim, you're right, teh IDF should
DR ,   Florida, USA   (01.07.11)
just fire rockets into gaza without bias. Kill whoever, just like your Hamas terrorist heros do! We can fight water with water, but we prefer to do it the right way!
15. #7, Tyler
DR ,   Florida, USA   (01.07.11)
Did you also think it was horrible when a preganant woman was murdered by palestinian terrorists the other month or do you only pay attentino when the IDF is int he article???
16. How does she know he was asleep
Shaul ,   Silicon Valley   (01.07.11)
She says that the soldiers shot her husband while he was asleep. (While the IDF says he was resisting) Yet she also says that she was held while the soldiers went into her husband's bedroom. So if she wasn't in her husband's bedroom when he was shot, how can she say what was happening?
17. a person, who is trusted a gun, cant just open fire...
eporue ,   europe   (01.07.11)
because "they THOUGHT there was a threat". this is murder. and their commanders have to be hold accountable the same way.
BENJAMIN ,   SINGAPORE   (01.07.11)
19. terrible but none
Barney ,   USA   (01.07.11)
of this would have happened if the PA had not released 5 cold blooded murderers. If they won't serve justice then Israel will and mistakes, however tragic, that happen fall back on the head of the PA
20. Even the articles photo does not back up the IDF's claims
Yishai Cohen ,   USA   (01.07.11)
Judging from the blood sprayed on the headboard and large about of blood the pillow and the mattress, the IDF soldiers who killed him are going to have a hard time backing up their claim that he was not lying in bed in any court of law...well that is to say any court outside of Israel anyway. Where is the CSI Palestine team when you need them.
21. Cali Cal
nr ,   los angeles, ca   (01.07.11)
You are seriously messed up. Guess you missed the story about how the tear gas didn't kill the woman in Bilin, you know, the woman whose family is going to sue the IDF for her murder, when it was her doctor who killed her? Let this story play out - you will see that all is not as it appears. Mistakes happen, but why jump to conclusions?
22. the cancer of occupation
R Coyner ,   usa   (01.07.11)
An innocent man was killed. It is a sure bet that the cold-blooded killers will never be held accountable because after all, it was only a Palestinian. And if the soldiers are disciplined, it will only be for show with a small fine or other punishment. The IDF is increasingly showing themselves to be cowardly and terroristic. This is a result of years of occupation and persecution of Palestinians. And it will only get worse as the system of apartheid in the occupied grows stronger.
23. :: Day 7 of 2011
Matty Groves ,   Fairport   (01.07.11)
From just glancing at the news sites this is the third innocent, unarmed Palestinian killed so far this year by the IDF. At this rate the IDF is on track to kill over 150+ Palestinian civilians this year. Keep shining that light...
24. Gunned down while sleeping
Ray ,   US   (01.07.11)
May he rest in peace. what the F@#$ is going on in this world? for how long will the people of the world let these crimes continue,
25. Where is Sarah B to defend this MURDER
Ray ,   US   (01.07.11)
she seems to be missing from this one story blame the poor man for moving in his sleep, or just being Palestinian.
26. to Matty- if the terrorists don't decease
Barney ,   USA   (01.07.11)
firing rockets etc. They will wish it was 150. Reap what you sow
27. IDF will pay heavy toll
ASSAF   (01.07.11)
criminals won,t escape from justice no matter how long it takes . they will pay heavily for thier crimes against poor innocent people .
28. hebron man"s wife......
sjoerd van der velde ,   hoorn-the netherland   (01.08.11)
everybody who murders another human being in cold blood and deliberately/on purpose is a (war)criminal/murderer/killer and should be brought to justice etc.!
29. Hey Matty #23
GUH   (01.08.11)
Can you give me the three Palestnians thus far? I'm making a list. So far: 1. Jawaher Abu Rahmah (I don't believe IDF propaganda for a moment about this one) 2. Amr Qawasme Who is the third one? Cheers.
30. # 12
One down, more to go. Why come in the middle of the night? One is usually at home in the middle of the night. DUH.
