    Killing a journalist under any circumstances is not only a war crime but completely counterproductive to your cause. Disgusting. Rest in peace, Shireen Abu Akleh.

      Despite how hard it is to believe you actually make enough to owe, it shouldnt be hard to accept the fact that everyone has qualms with where their money goes.

      Do you eat paint chips or something? Paleatinians have custody of the body and still cant determine what bullet killed her. It is infact permissible to lie in Islam is it not?

      Well they are 40 I don’t know if it’s enough or maybe they should kill more so you can be satisfied?
      And in case you won’t believe my sources then what’s the point of all of that ?
      If you are the one than knows everything then and i am the biased then no need to waste my energy searching for evidences that are available to everyone on the internet,but the audacity you have to claim that you understand the Palestinian side lol you don’t ,and of course you won’t when you are the side kicking Palestinians out of their homes so jews coming from Europe can live in them
      (One settler admitted stealing an Palestinian family’s house) his name is yakob he stole part of alkurds house (search it not doing it for you anymore)
      And the same side attacking al aqsa in ramadan with bombs and bullets and breaking its windows and properties and preventing Christians to celebrate their holidays then claiming that you respect all religions
      And not the side arresting and assaulting Palestinians in Jerusalem then crying on the media that hamas attacks innocent Israelis that did “nothing”
      Like your lives matters Palestinians lives matter and like you claim that you have the right to defend they have the right to defend you can’t domlish,steal,kick assult,arrest,shoot,kill and be surprised that they respond ,because guess what they are not your dolls to play with and they had enough!!
      i am done mr. I know both sides

    My sincere condolences and sympathies for all Palestinians affected by the illegal occupation, violence, persecution, and murders by the criminal Israeli occupiers. Both sides must come back to the negotiation table to agree to an equitable division land for the state of Palestine and Israel. Such an agreement must be binding in accordance to international laws. Such an agreement should include a separate internationally monitored court to handle cases involving cross border disputes and crimes. Those responsible for cross border violence or civil matters arising from resettlement after the land division agreement and resettlement of the population has occured, must be handled by this new court to ensure equal and just treatment of all cases. It is clear we cannot continue ignoring the unjust imprisonment of Palestinians in the Westbank and Gaza.
    If Israelis were to move into Great Britain and force all Brits to relocate to Scotland, seize their property, and actively recruite and pay Jewish people from all over the world to move to Britain to take possession of homes and business taken from Brits, the world would fight on behalf of the Brits. World War III would break out.

      @Cliff King Religion has no bearing on the physical ownership or rights to land. Nor should religion be forced onto those who have other religious beliefs or no religious beliefs at all. I know, as a free man in the West, my views on religion - that of religion being dehumanizing, destructive, and responsible for global decisiveness, is intolerable to the many of the faithful. How could any such God implore followers to harm others who do not believe as they do? If there is a God, what modern form of religion is the truth?............. Nevermind that. This is not a debate on or of religion. This is a debate over the ownership of land and the moral and ethical rights of those being occupied and having their homes and land taken from them to given to another simply because they are a Jew. Suicide attacks by Hamas and the "targeted" killing by Israel, both killing and destroying the lives of civilians, does nothing to solve the ongoing dispute or bring a meaningful resolution closer. Too many outside governments with selfish interest, my own included, continue to interfere without bringing about a true, just, or long lasting resolution. A final, peaceful resolution is possible. Even if it means building a 20 meter high wall along a new border separating Israel in the north from Palestine in the south.

    Who ever killed Shireen Abu akleh knew exactly what they were doing, she was wearing a press helmet and vest with clear press sign on it. Her colleagues said that they were targeted by an Israeli sniper. They intended to not just scare or injure her but to intentionally kill her and they know there won't be any accountability.

      @Georgy Zhukov Shireen was a gifted veteran journalist that has been reporting from the area for many years. _HER DEATH_ is unacceptable. Unless the media lied about her being killed, and she is somewhere alive and well, then there is no information that could make this story acceptable.
      I would welcome the chance to read any information from reliable sources that provide more details. However, any reports attempting to redirect blame, regarding where the bullet that took her life came from, are missing the point.

      it is not allowed to supplicate for the unbeliever, and to seek forgiveness for him― so long as he was a non-Muslim (kāfir) and died as such, then supplication for forgiveness is not made for him because those who died whilst disbelieving in Allah, His Revelation (the Quran) and in the Messenger of Allah (salallāhu ’alaihi wasallam) will not be forgiven.

      You may not know, you may not care, but Palestinians fired massive shots at the Israeli soldiers who were documented by this journalist. It is not impossible that she was hit by Palestinian fire, the Palestinians documented themselves shooting at the Israeli soldiers, seeing one of them shoot and then bursts out in joyful cries: "We hit the soldier and he was thrown to the floor", no casualties in the Israeli forces, the Palestinian apparently shot the poor journalist. She also wore a vest helmet.
      I wonder why Palestinian refuged to the Israeli offer to conduct a joint pathological investigation.

      In fact, She was Mistakenly killed by Palestinian terrorists
      The Palestinian Authority is refusing to allow Israel to examine the bullet that killed Al Jazeera journalist Shireen Abu Akleh yesterday in an effort to determine who fired it.
      Israel has been largely blamed for her death by Palestinian leadership and civilians. This noncompliance from the Palestinian Authority suggests that they want to uphold the current status quo of finger-pointing at Israel without any proof regarding who actually fired the gun that killed Shireen.
