Posted on 03/10/2014 12:31:56 PM PDT by Nachum
An IDF force lying in ambush shot dead an Arab terrorist who was preparing to throw rocks at Israeli cars traveling on Road 60, north of Jerusalem. The incident took place near Givat Asaf, in the Binyamin region, on Monday evening.
The ambush was placed following an uptick in the number of similar attacks as of late. It is too early to say whether it signals a change in IDF policy toward rock throwers, but the military action appears to be a departure from the policy of the last few years, which has been marked by extreme hesitance to use deadly force against rock and firebomb throwers.
"Central Command and the Judea and Samaria theater have turned into a Russian roulette in the last few months, in which the lives, health and dignity of soldier and civilians hang in the balance, while Palestinian marauders enjoy near complete immunity in what an only be described as operational recklessness, wrote a political activist and reservist combat soldier in November.
Tadmor explained that a Jewish man was gravely injured by Arabs in the course of a protest by residents of Talmon and Neria, despite the presence of four armed soldiers. The soldiers' presence does not guarantee the safety of civilians, he said, "especially when they are afraid to exit their rock-proofed vehicle, for fear that they will have to open fire and will face the real threat: the possibility of being put on trial."

i rock thrown at a moving car is like a bullet hitting it
The IDF used to just shoot them in the hip or groin, using a suppressed 1022 platform. I always thought it would be better to aim about two to two and a half feet higher.
I see what you did there...
It’s like one of those “compare and contrast” questions on the SATs, right?
At least, it’s an effective means of reducing recividism.
As a message, I would have went with chopping off the throwing hand. Signifies that a crime was committed and punishment meted out.
But he was an aspiring rapper, going back to school, good to his kids.
I guess their government doesn’t order them to run away like the Obama government demands of our Border Patrol.
Had my Native American ancestors been in charge, they not only would have shot the perp, but displayed his scalp from a roadside effigy pole as a warning to other would-be terrorists.
True. You cannot act civilly with the uncivilized. Your civil manner will be seen as an act of weakness.
Over here they shoot kids with Nintendo controllers dead so I wouldn’t complain about the rock throwers.
...taught his son how to skip rocks down at the mirage...
Good. One less nut job gone. severeal more million to deal with. Every little bit helps.
Rock, Paper, .223.
I like the new game better.

Really not a solution.
Just ‘wingin’ them makes them a cripple(who—today— you would have to fix or support) or at least run with a limp the next time (and yes, there will be a next time) they throw rocks or worse.
Kill them, leave them where they lie and let the rest of the people know why they are lying there dead or severely wounded.
Absolutely NO compassion on my part.
And no, as a kid I didn’t throw rocks at trains or cars or horses as a ‘prank’.
you can kill the driver, and/or cause lethal accidents and jam up roadways.
Rocks are a deadly weapon, even if you’re not going 90 kph. Shoot the terrorists, and they will learn not to attack innocent people. Or even if they don’t learn, it won’t matter if the sniper’s aim is good. Good riddance.
yep. they won’t understand civility. it’s the dont cast pearls before swine situation as it relates to civilized behavior. don’t waste it on people who won’t appreciate it.
Thanks, I was going to search for that article. The CBP has to flee from illegals throwing rocks, but our police can shoot to kill for just about any reason.
Definitely not a David v. Goliath scenario.
Stupid moron needed to remember not to bring rocks to a gun fight.
Actually I think it is Rock, Paper, 5.56 mm
Actually, those rocks aren’t thrown by hand the way most people think. instead, they’re hurled with nearly three foot long slings that the users swirl about their heads before releasing the rocks. That gives the average projectile an initial velocity a bit north of 100 m.p.h.,enabling it to do a lot of damage to its target. Just Remember David and Goliath. David had a very powerful weapon and used it superbly.
Bullets, Rock, scissor....
Pretty sure how I’d play ....
After reading stories about Pally thugs gladly slaughtering Israeli women and children by shooting or stabbing them, I have little sympathy for these worthless oxygen thieves.
I knew someone would come along and provide the correct caliber. :-)
You mean older Americans? They’re not native.
That would be a good deterrent, however, unless you’re used to skinning things, it might take a bit to get used to for some folks heh.
I think Vlad just liked to impale moslems, correct me if I’m wrong.
That wasn’t all he did.
The story goes that a couple of muzzies came to Vlad’s castle to discuss peace terms. When brought to his presence, they refused to remove their head coverings. So Vlad acknowledged that....and had his men nail the head coverings to the men’s heads with a spike.
So much for the peace talks. :)
IDF shoots rock thrower dead
It would seem then that Vlad knew how to handle moslems.
I’m not saying we should follow his ways, but we should have mass deportations.
GOOD! Bring them over here to work the southern border.
I can see how some would consider that demoralizing. I’m dumb enough, I would see it as a challenge :P
You might be going in alone against a couple hundred thousand pissed off Romanians. Good luck.
That’s no different than any other battle Canadians have fought heh.
We need to deport these moslems before they overrun the west.
