    A man and woman are pronounced dead after being critically wounded, while an additional woman is moderately wounded in the Barkan industrial area after a 23-year-old Palestinian who was employed there opened fire with an M-16 assault rifle; security forces are conducting a manhunt to capture the suspect.
    The woman who later succumbed to her wounds was found handcuffed on the floor. The 54-year-old told the paramedics she heard a loud noise and went to check its source. After seeing her, the terrorist shot at her and she hid under a table.

    I don't walk to talk about the filthy ISIS Paleshtinian murderer who shot that innocent
    woman in the head .. He will NOT live long Inshallah.

    Some 5,000 Palestinians are employed in Israeli-owned businesses in the Barken industrial area, Israelis and Arabs work together in the same place, living together in coexistence.
    Why is the BDS movement opposed to this cooperation?
    It is clear that this is the perpetuation of poverty among the Palestinian side.
    They want the Palestinians to continue to be refugees forever, to receive money from Europe and to be a bleeding wound in the Middle East.

    Russia decided on this type of policy back in 1972.

    I'm curious why the M-16 seems to be becoming so popular.

    Its a horrible, horrible weapon.

    The Palestinian Jihadist shot her in the head with a "Carl Gustaf" rifle.
    The weapon is not horrible .. the murder is !

    Not sure why you are confused.

    I'm sorry but my statement was off topic but I was curious why we are seeing the M-16 pop up all over the world and being involved incidents when there are far superior weapons out there.

    Especially nowadays.

    The round itself has no stopping power, the gun is unreliable at best and plus its not easy to acquire one.

    a round with muzzle velocity of ~2850fps has no stopping power?

    Sure, if you get hit by 20 of them you may slowly bleed to death.

    Are you seriously trying to argue that the M-16 is a good weapon?

    That's a terrible news for the Palestinian working on the Israeli side as well as with the Israeli employers.

    well, compared to a russian ss-18 satan missile? no, i'll go with the missile. but the m16 has been the workhorse of us and nato forces for 5 decades. there are about 10 million of them in existence. granted we have almost finished the transition to the m4 in the us. but the 5.56 round is here to stay. but your argument sounds like "omg, really you think the f150 is a good pickup????"

    The M-16 isn't all that popular and the M-4 is replacing them. If you are talking about them being used for murder around the world, I don't see that. The typical weapon used for terrorism and run of the mill mayhem is usually the AK-47. You aren't talking about an AR-15 are you?

    I've just noticed quite a few news reports with M-16s being involved and it was rather curious to me.

    Haven't ever seen that in the past so it was surprising.

    Why anyone would choose an M-16 over an AK47 is beyond me.

    The M-4 uses the same round as the M-16 by the way.

    Its a different looking peashooter.

    I can find no mention of a M-16 used in any news story. A fully auto or burst weapon isn't easy to get your hands on and the US doesn't send these to every hot spot. BTW, I'm fully aware of the difference between an M-16 which I have fired, an M-4, and AR-15, of which I own one and parts to build more.

    Yes and it makes me think of how much proliferation of that weapon is going on around the world because of similar circumstances.

    I have other links I could show you but I think you get the point.

    Whether people are using it more because its more readily available I don't know but I don't think it would be the preferred weapon.

    Do you agree with that?

    I am not an expert, but IMO the AK is a better fit for irregular combat. It is very forgiving of dirt and abuse and I've seen videos of someone shooting one until the wooden stock caught fire. The M-16 is more accurate but otherwise not a great fit. If they are showing up more perhaps it's because they are being retired and so end up on surplus markets or being shipped to militia groups we support. The AK will still dominate that market.

    That Israeli was killed in the West Bank which is not part of Israel. If them Israeli's don't like how they are treated for trying to profit from ethnic cleansing outside Israel, than they can always go back to their own side of the border and comply with international law.
