... Susan Rice said Wednesday the U.S. is paying close attention to the investigation into the death of 17-year-old Mohammed Abu Khdeir, which followed the discovery in the West Bank on Monday of the bodies of three abducted Israeli teenagers. She also said the U.S. sends condolences to his family and the Palestinian people.
The first thing that came to my mind -- God help me -- was F the Palestinian people. I hate to be the one to break the news to the geniuses in Washington, but there is a better than even chance that this poor boy was murdered by some of his own people rather than by Israeli "extremists" seeking revenge. Anybody that doesn't understand these barbarians are perfectly capable of killing one of their own for propaganda value would have to somehow ignore the rather obvious fact of Muslim suicide bombers.
I would have a hard time condemning Israelis for being vengeful, though retaliation of this sort would be both wrong and uncharacteristic. This story has a lot of "false flag" potential. The disgusting, bloodthirsty thugs and perverts who want to wipe Israel off the map would like nothing better than to divert attention from their atrocities committed against three Jewish boys who had done nothing to deserve such treatment.
Vengeance is mine, and recompense,Thus saith the Lord.
for the time when their foot shall slip;
for the day of their calamity is at hand,
and their doom comes swiftly.
