I know the perspective of the news in America is totally different than over here. Over there I was a total news and pop culture junkie. Over here its much harder for me. I try to stay on top of things, and slowly I'm learning. But the recent murder of two off-duty soldiers hiking near their home in Hebron, is being talked about over here and I'm wondering if and how much it was covered in the US.
These two young men were in elite units and decided to go hiking with a friend, a young woman. They were shot by members of Fatah, the "good guys", the ones we are going to have a lasting peace with (Please read that last sentence with sarcasm!). Even though they were mortally injured they managed to shoot back at the terrorists, thus saving the life of their friend before succumbing to their own injuries.
Many are saying they had no business hiking where it is so obviously dangerous. Others are saying, "Don't we have the right to hike the width and breadth of our land?"
Are they saying anything in the states about all this? And what do you think?
The soldier's names were Cpl. Ahikam Amihai (20) and Sgt. David Ruben (21).
