'Human Rights' group calls for criminal investigation into terrorists' deaths

The 'human rights' group B'Tzelem has called for a criminal investigation into the deaths of four 'Palestinian' terrorists in a gun battle with IDF forces earlier this month.
In a letter to the attorney general and the IDF Military Advocate General, the group says that its own investigation raised serious suspicions that the wanted men had not been killed during an exchange of fire or while trying to escape, as intimated by the IDF.

B'Tselem said that if the men were in fact executed, the IDF is guilty of severely violating a High Court ruling stating that the state is prohibited from intentionally killing Palestinians if less harmful means of maintaining security are available, meaning arrest and due process.

In a letter addressed to the attorney general and to MAG, the organization demanded that the investigation into the incident focus on the culpability of the IDF commanders who orchestrated the Bethlehem arrest raid, including the Chief of Staff.

B'Tselem also maintained that their probe revealed that not only were the four victims needlessly executed, the troops also continued to shoot to ensure that they were dead. The rights group's letter stated that once three of the men who were sitting in a parked vehicle had been shot to death, an IDF man approached the car and shot each of them again at close range. This man also shot the driver, who was lying wounded and unarmed outside the car, the letter said.
Let's continue pretending that terrorists are petty thieves and that we can 'arrest' them.

It doesn't bother these leftists that eight Jewish yeshiva students paid with their lives. But they're concerned terrorists are dead. That's their idea of human rights? It reminds me of the story of the orphan who cried after killing his parents.

They just do not get it!
