    Al i read is nasty things, about the young soldier,but lets consider a few things about him, he is young and in a war, not all young boys are good at playing soldier ,and he was told this and that, and probably confused and even scared.let also remember that during the 2de WW a lot of japanese surrendered, only to blow themselves up when they got close to the American soldiers.and the istamist bombers have been doing it now for a long time ,so a white flag in the hand of one person does not mean the others dont have explosives hidden,so all you armchair generals, unless you are in that situation dont be so smart and condemm to fast, last week some muslems blew them selves up in a busy market full of other muslems, woman children ect ect ,i did not read any bad talkbacks about that in haarezts, and when an Arab blew himself up in Tel Aviv a few years ago and kilid 14 teensagers i also did not hear to many complaints about that, itis only when an Israeli is involved all the crapp comes out and give comment on something they have never expirienced personally, it is easy to sit save and snug at home with a cup of coffee,in front of your computor and predend you are OH, so smart, and give comments about things you know zero about, joseph theeboom
