policeman shot dead by Palestinian gunmen
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israel's Shin Bet intelligence agency said Monday that it had identified two Palestinians responsible for the April shooting that killed an Israeli policeman and injured two others, Israeli media reported.

Israeli forces arrested Ziad Awad, 42, and his 18-year-old son, on May 7 and they were charged in a military court on Monday, the Jerusalem Post reported.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said early Monday that he ordered Awad's family home demolished, the Israeli news site Ynet reported.

Ziad is a former prisoner who was released in the 2011 Gilad Shalit deal.

Israeli police officer Baruch Mizrahi was shot dead while he was driving near Hebron in the southern West Bank on April 14. His wife and son were also injured in the shooting.

Occupying police officer?Named Baruch(Goldstein)Mizrahi(Shas Party),living near Hebron,where some of the MOST radical/brutally aggressive Russian & Mizrahi colonists squat(as Ashkenazi pawns)on Palestinian land,led by extremists/racists like Yishai,Bennett,Rotem,Lieberman & Ovadiah Yosef of the,"It's forbidden to be merciful to Arabs...send missiles to...annihilate them"?Yes,I think we can balance that"equation",along with the torture-tactics of Shin Bet in accusing indefinate POW detainee's!

Is he any relation to Amjad and Hakim Awad, the brave Palestinians who killed the Fogel parents and then slaughtered three of their children including a 3-month-old baby? Amjan and Hakim are among the "prisoners" - convicted murderers - that the Palestinians are demanded "must" be released. The world must wake up and tell the Palestinians they are also subject to the same laws as everybody else: you are not allowed to stick knives into civilians, especially babies. That is a murder.

Which puts any future prisoner releases on the back burner for a LONG time. Israel will not go down that road again until other peace settlement issues are resolved.

I can understand Israel's decision to free all those prisoners to get the release of Gilad Shalit. What I cannot understand is why Ziad Awad was so ready and willing to go back and kill an Israeli policeman. Did he think the IDF would not go looking for the killer. Well Ziad you will not get a second pardon even if Israel would be pushed into letting more prisoners go for the 3 kidnapped boys. Unless you break out of jail you are there for the rest of your life. Go on a hunger strike.

Mizrahi's widow is calling for Awad to get the death penalty. Maan should investigate and see if he is related to the Awad cousins who murdered the Fogel family (the parents and then 3 children including stabbing a 3-month-old baby to death).

The Quality of Justice? Innocent until proven guilty? No, charge them and demolish their home? Sure, no pre-judgements here... the only democracy...rule of law... blah, blah, blah!

Richard - don't you read the news (especially Maan)??? Most of these Palestinians willingly admit to killing Israelis. Unless, of course, you happen to be one their supporters who think that Palestinians have immunity from international law and have the right to kill Israelis. They don't. Nobody does. Your sense of justice is extremely perverted.
