      I like the priorities you so-called “progressives” have…..a soldier is murdered in cold blood on a bus, and you headline the piece “REVENGE ATTACK” in which the revenge (which wasn’t lethal and in which no one’s person was harmed) is the only thing that interests you.

      • I think a photo of the slain 19 year old soldier should have been posted; he radiates innocence. There is one in the Jerusalem Post, reported by Joel commenting on this site.

        I think all of us, all around, need to see what is being destroyed in this conflict.

        But I would not portray this murder as an instance of armed rebellion, for it is not.

        Soldiers are legitimate targets in a fight against occupying forces.
        Get over it.
