    Maybe the Israeli Army thought they were terrorists and shelled them with a tank. Maybe it was a family member? Maybe it was the father of the unborn child and he didn't want it (something that happens too often)? Maybe it was terrorists? Why assume it was terrorists....

    CNN this was a TERRORIST act.
    If a Jewish militia were to do the same thing it would be FRONT NEWS.
    These were civilians. Not legitimate targets ... especially at times all sides are trying to reach a consensus.

    after the initial shooting the arab terrorists walked over to car and shot them at point blank just to make sure. i wonder how many more have to die for a few pictures in Washington.

      Nope they didn't die suddenly...just like that. They were stricken by a case of Karma.

      Hot Tacos, Karma does not come around this way. Read up on what it really is before you use terms wrongly.

    What were they doing near Hebron to begin with? May as well tie a pork chop around your neck and walk through a lion's den.

      Sure, you have such a good point, I think you should be editor in chief of this hypocritical biased news agency, because in truth, why should a Jew be allowed to walk ANYWHERE?....

      Yeah. Israel will create more terrorists after they bulldoze a few more houses for the 'settlers'. And then ask 'Why'? Stupid is if stupid does.

    they were probably killed by the same people who got their homes bull dozed earlier this month by the Israeli Army. Funny how that didn't even get a blurb. Pregnant women are starved to death in Palestinian territory because of inhumane sanctions. Never forget Rachel Corrie!

    every single one of you who is criticizing cnn for not naming who shot these people is a racist bigot. isreali news agencies in israel arent naming who shot these people (such as haaretz). why should cnn? maybe instead of ASSuming it was palestinian terrorists you should wait till some evidence comes out...

      yes nancy, assuming. while fundamentalists like you might not like to admit it, but jews have been slaughtering jews over ideology long before the creation of israel. who blew up the king david hotel in jerusalem? JEWISH TERRORISTS. who assasinated the isreali PM itzak rabin? JEWISH TERRORISTS.
