She would be a true hero if she was serving as a human shield on buses or at dance clubs against homicide bombers
Funny thing - non-violence only works against duly elected moral governments. Tyrants and terrorists could care less. So it shows just who she was aligning with.

I don't support her actions but let me give you a perspective to consider... the difference between Palestinian terrorism and Israeli self-defense is the latter's respect for human life. There is no glory, no tactical advantage gained, no grand payback in the death of this girl. The Israelis don't celebrate when some adolescent Palestinian firing off a machine gun is killed by the IDF, rather it saddens them that the terrorists devalue the life of their own people because they hate their enemy so much. We can acknowledge the futility of her death without debasing ourselves in the process.
