    This is not an apology of the occupation, which I agree is a cancer for Israel. And my heart does go out to the dead policeman's family. A tragedy? Absolutely. A murder? Can't tell yet. Some elements in the story leave me with questions: 1. someone hears "eight or nine shots", from all appearances being made at a distance of less than a yard between shooter and victim, and someone else lifts the victim's coat and sees "the wound"? 2. was the barber on the same side of the van as the policeman (the barber claims to have seen the policeman's gun pointing down)? did the juice maker see the policeman open the van's door? (he "noticed" the policeman stopping a van) 3. Salah was heavy, "some say 110 kgs.", and he chased a moving van? 4. Finally, why on earth did the van stop? because an overweight palestinian policeman was chasing it? I think we need more facts. An article like this, filled with second hand information and innuendo, actually undermines the peace camp.
