Thoughts on the Arrests of Six Israelis in Murder of Palestinian Teen

By on 7.6.14 | 8:58PM

Six Israelis have been arrested in connection with the murder of a Palestinian teen last week in apparent retaliation for the murder of three Jewish teens who were kidnapped by Hamas.

Of course, these six Israelis are entitled to due process. But if they are convicted for the crime which they have been accused I think this can be said with certainty. Israelis will not be naming their schools, streets and soccer fields after these men. Nor have Israelis taken to the streets to hand their children candies. Israelis do not consider the death of Mohammed Abu Khdeir cause for celebration.
