A Ticking Firebomber Killed

Gideon Levy has a pro-firebomber piece in Haaretz.  It drips empathy for the terrorist.

Okay, he doesn't suggest outright that Arabs throw fire-bombs at IDF soldiers of Israeli civilians but he does attack the army's attempts to protect themselves and Israel's civilians.

He claims the attacker who was killed outside of Bet El, Murad Abu Razi, was shot in the back (although Levy's actual words are "The soldiers shot at them from behind") and

He was obviously not endangering the soldiers as he fled.

Obviously?  Did they know he did not have a gun and maybe would have turned and fire at them?

Although the post-mortem examination found 

that he had been shot with one bullet that entered his back and exited via the chest, on the left side

I won't attempt to argue whether at the time, early evening when the visibility is not perfect, Abu Razi perhaps had also been seen at an angle, turning to his left, rather than at a 90-degree angle,  But I will say that the shot that killed him obviously save a Jewish life in the future.

The dead youth was a terrorist.  He refused at least two attempts to dissuade him from throwing the firebomb.  He was a ticking firebomber.

There are no moral doubts.

Would that his death convince other youths to leave the path of terror.
