|Israel Israeli soldier jailed for killing British activist Tom Hurndall released early||Rachel Shabi--Tom`s mother, Jocelyn, today said: "From the moment that Tom was shot, we said it wasn`t about the soldier, who is a small part of the machinery, but about the responsibility of the Israeli army and its lack of accountability over civilian killings.
