    Riot control in civilises countries does not involve shoot to kill. And you nor anyone else can argue that if these rioters, as you term them, had been Haredi Jews rioting at a desacrated gravesite or nationalist fanatics protesting the demolition of a hilltop colony in the Palestinian territories, they would have shot to kill. Nor would the police simply say they didnt know where to locate some of the police involved in the killing. The gist of your argument is they got what they deserved and if they dont like the result then they can get the hell out and leave the Jews, the REAL Israelis alone. You condone what was done and you justify it as morally acceptable. This is reprehensible and the attitude is part of the root problem in Israel today. And that root problem is turning into a cancer by not addressing its malignancy.
