Key testimony supports Hevron soldier who shot terrorist
Soldier's case strengthening: commander admits he would have shot too, comrade says were told terrorist had a bomb belt.
Hebron soldier: ‘I’m only being investigated because they’re scared of what the world has to say’
The testimony of the detained soldier suspected of killing a neutralized terrorist was released for the first time today. In his interrogation, the soldier claimed, “Thoughts came into my head about a Hamas terror cell telling us that they’re planning to carry out a terror attack.”
My son deserves to be treated like a hero not a criminal says father of IDF Soldier. Prosecution is preparing an indictment for manslaughter against him.
http://www.jewishpress.com/news/breaking-news/hebron-soldier-released-from-jail/2016/03/31/ "I am convinced the investigation will be professional and fair to your son.” says Netanyahu to father.
Can someone be trusted to investigate itself? It does not take days of investigation to acknowledge that there was a real possibility that the terrorist was wearing an explosive device under his closed vest that could have potentially detonated endangering everyone. In real time, a soldier does does not have the luxury to investigate. A soldier must make a quick decision and act.
I do not trust the Military investigation will be fair since the Morality Laws of the IDF are based on political correctness rather than on Moral Ethics of combat. Terror attacks on soldiers and innocent civilians should be considered as an act of War. The Palestinians themselves do not consider these knife attacks as terror. They consider them "Resistance". They chant "Resistance is justified when Palestine is occupied."
If the Terrorist was merely engaging in resistance than perhaps shooting him was not in order. However, it is clear to everyone that the attacker was not merely resisting, but rather engaged in a deadly act of terror on IDF soldiers no different than a real time war situation.
Another question of moral ethics is whether the IDF should treat terrorist and victim as if there is no difference between them when both victim and terrorist are wounded. It is not the job of the medic to make that decision because they have been trained to disregard the circumstances and go by the rules of triage. So unless instructed otherwise, the terrorist who is in worse medical condition will be treated before his victims according to the Moral Ethics of the IDF. This morality seems very off. Being compassionate to the cruel will make one cruel to the compassionate.
Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon and Chief of Staff Lt. Gadi Eisenkot, the soldier violated "basic rules of military engagement." Eisenkot reported said that "the soldier's behavior reflected neither the IDF's nor Jewish values."
Maybe Moshe Ya'alon and Chief of Staff Lt. Gadi Eisenkot should be under investigation for violating "basic rules of military engagement" whose Moral ethics do not reflect Ethical and moral rules of combat warfare nor Jewish ethics of combat warfare but rather reflect influences of a political nature.

אזרחי ישראל מעניקים ציון לשבח לחייל צה"ל
This is what Moshe Feiglin posted on Facebook:
There is nothing more moral than eliminating a terrorist who attempts murder. Whoever doesn’t understand this literally sheds blood.
How many soldiers and civilians will G-d forbid pay with their lives for the pandering to the nations 'morality' show put on by the Prime Minister and Defense Minister in response to Thursday's event in Hebron, in which a soldier shot and killed an injured terrorist?

What is the Torah perspective on this? Chareidim, Yeshivish, Chasidish, Dati Leumi, Yeshiva Torah Scholars who are busy learning Torah day and night surely can offer a Torah perspective in this timely and relevant discussion of Pikuach Nefesh.
