Slain couple buried Sunday afternoon
Slain couple buried Sunday afternoon
By Margot Dudkevitch -- Jerusalem Post
Sunday, February 29, 2004


Eitan Kukoi, 30, and his wife, Rima Novikov, 27, were buried Sunday afternoon at 3:30 PM in the new Beersheba cemetary.
The two were gunned down by terrorists as they drove on the Hebron-Beersheba road between Eshkolot and Sansana near the Green Line on Friday night.
Gunmen ambushed them from the roadside, then approached the vehicle, continuing to shoot the couple to ensure they were dead before fleeing to a waiting car and back into the West Bank, said police.
RIma and Eitan are survived by their two-year-old daughter, Michelle.
The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine and Al-Aksa Martyrs Brigades both claimed responsibility for the murders, saying two gunmen were involved in the attack. A statement issued by the PFLP said the attack was a response to Israel's "massacre" of the Palestinian people, and vowed to continue attacks in Israel.
Kukoi and Novikov, who lived in Livna-Shani, a settlement near the Green Line, were on their way to a birthday party in Ashdod. They had left their daughter at home with her grandmother. (...)
Police said scores of Kalashnikov cartridge cases were found at the scene. Shalom Tobin, security head at the nearby Kibbutz Lahav, said the car was sprayed with bullets. "It was a terrible sight. It was clear they were shot at point-blank range," he said. (...)
Kukoi's sister, Tassia Levine, who also lives in Livna-Shani said she heard of the shooting on the radio, and when the color of the car was described and that a couple was shot, she feared the worst. "I prayed and prayed that it wasn't them," she said. (...)
The couple were to celebrate their daughter's second birthday this week. "She knows something is wrong, she feels it. During the night she called out for her mother and father." Levine said she and her husband plan to adopt Michelle....

The J-Post is one of the few newspapers that will call a terrorist a terrorist.

2. Where's all these people who cry about the palestinians? I
guess that palestinians murdering Israeli civilians means nothing to them. So, I don't want to hear them crying about a palestinian being shot in the back. Hypocrites.

6. Oh, I'm right here.

This is cold-blooded fucking murder. No 'shit happens'. Not 'occupational hazard'. Not 'collateral damamge'. (In case you were wondering these were terms used to desrcibe the killign of innocent bystanders over the last couple of days).

Cold blooded murder by vicious fiends. Probably left a couple of kids orphans as well. Disgusting.

Now, let the authorities go find the killers that did this. ANd throw the fucking book at them.

Not an unarmed 15 year old kid. You dig?

8. Perhaps s/he did.
But I didn't.
So perhaps you can take that up with her/him.
And if you feel a comment to me is neccessary, feel free to address *my* post.
I don't understand your 'excuse me??" subject.
It may help you out to know I'm not part of any idealogical tag-team.

3. Bullshit.
These were terrorists, and you know it. These bastards shot a young couple - at point-blank - leaving a two-year-old kid without parents.

12. It's so unfair
The sooner there's peace the better. It's usually innocents who become victims. Those planning and executing wars are protected and the innocent masses are exposed to danger.

13. two more innocent people are dead
another child grows up without loving parents..yet the debate is whether the perpetrators are terrorists or freedom-fighters?? ..this is just a war of attrition..with the mounting dead scoring political points for opposing sides ..political leaders must come forward and work out a resolution..
