This article reports that the Israeli army fired into the lifeless body of a young Palestinian girl of a five-count indictment, including illegal use of a weapon and inappropriate behaviour. But even with the trial over, the tragic death of 13-year-old Iman Al Hams created a furore that refuses to go away. The killing of a Palestinian civilian rarely makes the headlines in Israel and it is unusual for the army to launch an investigation into the circumstances of such incidents. But on this occasion the behaviour of the unidentified army officer so appalled men from his own Givati brigade platoon that on condition of anonymity they reported his actions to Israeli television. Initially the Israeli army said Iman was shot because she was suspected of carrying a bomb in her satchel although it was discovered to hold only school books. Iman Al Hams is not the first Palestinian child to die from Israeli bullet wounds and sadly she will not be the last but as surely as these Israeli extremists are murdering Palestinians, they are also murdering every vestige of humanity, dignity and integrity their own society ever possessed.
