    You better watch your step. Israel has always had a policy of going after the families of those that have taken action against Israel. This was most obvious when they had a policy of bulldozing the homes of suicide bombers. The bomber was dead. The family was likely not even aware of the circumstances, but the family was punished. This became an important part of Israels beloved "deterrence". We saw this again during the 2006 war. Hizbollah made a border raid on an IDF post. The next day, Israel was bombing apartment blocks in South Beruit, where most of the Hizbollah families resided. We have seen lot's of other examples in which Israel made death a "family affair". Most frequently, "targetted assassinations" would be made when the target was with his family. You gotta love that deterrence! Anyway, the family of the slain protester better disown that person immediately and profess undying loyalty to Israel. I am not sure that their statement will be enough to save them.
