Stone Throwing Or Attempted Murder

A few weeks ago I got into a public spat with the New York Times’ Jerusalem correspondent, Jodi Rudoren after she published the following:

Rocks in Hand a Boy Fights for his West Bank Village

“Children have hobbies, and my hobby is throwing stones,” Muhammad explained weeks before his most recent arrest. “A day with a confrontation is better than a free day.”

So here’s a nice video about what this “hobby” of “throwing stones” looks like.

So if the IDF saw a “child” about to do that to a passing civilian would they be justified in stopping that act, with lethal force if necessary?
