I condemn violence wherever it occurs, Palestinian or Israeli, or otherwise, except in self defence. But this shocked me. An incapacitated man lying on the ground is shot dead at point blank range in a "hate" crime. He is caught on video taking a knife and putting it near the executed man after killing him to make it look like it was self defence. His pals around him, doing nothing except egging him on...
"In Israel, an IDF soldier who was caught on video executing a wounded Palestinian man last March has been convicted of manslaughter. The video shows Palestinian Abdel Fattah al-Sharif, who was reportedly a suspect in a stabbing earlier in the day, lying immobilized on the ground in Hebron in the Israeli-occupied West Bank. The video then appears to show Israeli Sergeant Elor Azaria firing a single shot into the man’s head from a close distance, killing him. Azaria’s conviction today comes as a new report by Defense for Children International says Israeli soldiers killed 32 Palestinian children in the West Bank and East Jerusalem "
Should this not have been Murder in the first degree? Imo there are no mitigating circumstances. The man is clearly on the ground lying incapacitated with no weapon nearby.http://youtu.be/gB5EWNF71ughttp://www.timesofisrael.com/new-video-contradicts-testimony-of-soldier-who-killed-disarmed-palestinian/
