  1. Why am I not shocked that the guy in the white house has no comment but when a an Arab from Tampa who was terrorist was beaten NOT KILLED by the IDF he himself condemened it.

  2. BDE. Hashem Yerachaym. When will this stop?

    Karlbenmarx; Of course we’re not shocked. Do you expect any better from that evil guy in the white house? Meanwhile, he asked everyone around the country to fly their flags at half staff for the terror attacks in Paris, but will he ask the same for an American killed in Israel? Or for any of the victims of terror in Israel? I think we know the answer. It’s sickening.

  3. Why should anyone be shocked. The American citizen brutally murdered was a Jew; they don’t count. But if you are an arab or a nigger, well those are the downtrodden of the world.

  4. Hey avreimi – We all feel the rage, however, we are not living in a vacuum and many people read these posts. There’s no need to use racial slurs. Seriously – Chillul Hashem is NOT the way to go at a time like this.

  5. Hillary Clinton: Death Of U.S. Citizen In Mali Attack Should Deepen Resolve To Fight Terrorism

    Of course when it’s an US citizen killed in Israel no one cares.

    U.S. says disappointed with sentence of Israeli cop who beat teenager

    When Palestinian American teenager who travels to Israel and attach police, get a little putch, White house wants the cops to get in jail, and they invite the boy to White house.

    When Jewish American teenager get killed by terrorist, White House is very silent.

    What is that, if not an antisemitism?
