Email romance led Israeli teenager to his death? A classic honey-trap given a modern twist. Awful, just awful.

Hmmm... If their only goal was to kill an Israeli boy, couldn't it have been done alot more easily than luring him with promises of sex? This smells of something much more sinister.

Yeah, Neb: This is very very strange.

The header "Killing condemned" is tasteful.

Neb, the West Bank settlements and the Israeli territory itself are all armed camps. You have to have the correct papers to go anywhere. This was obviously a way to get a victim into an area where they could operate with impunity.

This will just give justification to the Israeli army's program of "pinpoint" killings, though.
