You would think the murder of a mother of six children in her own home in the presence of her children or the stabbing of a pregnant woman in her own home would move the Obama Administration to outrage.
But these two women are Jews. Worse they are Israelis living in the West Bank (the so-called settlers) and the Obama Administration doesn’t give a damn about them. US Ambassador to Israel Daniel Shapiro declared yesterday in Tel Aviv, “Too much Israeli vigilantism in the West Bank goes on unchecked.”
I would say that too many Palestinians with knives in Israel goes on unchecked.
Shapiro also claimed that Israel had one set of laws for Israelis and one for Palestinians.
Needless to say, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was not amused.
“The words of the ambassador, on a day in which a murdered mother of six is buried and on a day in which a pregnant woman is stabbed, are unacceptable and incorrect,” said Netanyahu, “Israel enforces the law for Israelis and Palestinians. The Palestinian Authority is the one responsible for the diplomatic freeze, and continues to incite and refuse talks.”
Between villifying Israel and praising itself on the Iran nuclear deal, the Obama Administration hasn’t a moment to spare for the innocent.
