Did Elor Azariya Shoot Terrorist Post-Mortem?

No doubt that this whole story would make great mesmerizing  suspense movie.

For the past couple of months, the Israeli public has been following the accusations and now trial of Elor Azariya, who when seeing movement of an already shot/injured Arab terrorist dressed in heavy clothing despite the heat, shot him.

A Leftist Arab (terrorists) sympathizer group photographed the scene and publicized it without sound. By muting the sound, viewers can't hear the shouts cautioning that the injured terrorist maybe boobytrapped, with hidden explosives. Their con worked, and public figures, including the then Minister of Defense, quickly condemned the young soldier.

We all know that one of the signs of a possible terrorist is wearing a coat or jacket in the summer, since outerwear can easily hide bombs strapped to the body. Many Arab terrorists have been caught before managing to activate deadly explosives, because they had been suspected due of their inappropriately heavy jacket.

Unfortunately for Elor Azariya, the Israeli media and Leftist politicians decided to use him to up their standing with the international Left. They have this dangerously fokokt ideology that terrorists are ordinary criminals, who should be given human and legal rights.

And now, out of left field, comes Dr. Yehuda Hiss, whose opinion puts an unexpected surprise on the table. The terrorist's  movements may have been just muscle twitches that sometimes happen at death. The original shots at the terrorist at the time he was apprehended caused his death, not Elor Azariya's bullets.

Does it really make a difference? Honestly, this whole trial and witch hunt is a moral travesty of justice. Soldiers in the field, like Elor Azariya and even citizens who find themselves in the midst of terror attacks, should not be held to civilian theoretical standards. And as far as I'm concerned, all Arab terrorists should be executed on the spot and never given civilian criminal trials.

This trial must be stopped and Elor Azariya set free, his record purged.

If I am not mistaken, the terrorist are engaged in an act of war. They are combatants and subject to extermination according to the Geneva convention and international law. Why we are such cowards when it comes to standing up for what's right and just, I will never understand.

Of course, the usual witch hunt is part of the left's agenda to appease the anti-semitic world (which they themselves are part of).

Shiloh, according to the LOAC's a combatant ceases to be a combatant once he's made "horse de combat"...

And no, I'm not saying that Azaria acted correctly or incorrectly... I wasn't there and I haven't seen the evidence... Having said that, I will say that, IMHO, many people (Israeli politicians, Israeli journalists as well as various IDF personnel) have spoken out of turn...

Isn't that why we have courts?!... To find out the guilty?!...

I know one thing, I told my son (currently serving in the IDF) to shoot if he felt he was in danger of his life... I'd rather have him face the legal system then be carried to his last resting place by members of his unit...

It is very dangerous to try a soldier for doing his job.

Batya - it's dangerous and insane. War is war and the only goal is winning so it ends.

Yes, exactly.
