Netanyahu condemns Jerusalem lynch
Five days after brutal assault of Arab youth by Jewish teens, PM vows to reject all manifestations of racism and violence. 'As Jews and Israelis we cannot accept this,' he says
..."This is not our way, it goes against our values and we strongly condemn it," he said.
..."This must be clear: the State of Israel is democratic and enlightened; a country where all leaders stand against such phenomenon.
"This is what sets us apart from our surroundings and will continue to set us apart...."
Commentary: And with this double-standard, all of the atrocities carried out daily against Jews is excused. Maybe you haven't noticed, Mr. Prime Minister, but we are at war and if you continue to fight this war like there really isn't one, we are going to lose. You're saying, as Israelis, we should turn the other cheek. That's not only the wrong religion, it's suicidal!
