Kids Celebrate Massacre

Credit where credit is due. AP and Reuters got photos of Palestinian kids morbidly celebrating the roadside shooting that killed Talya and Yitzhak Imes, Kochava Even-Haim, and Avishai Shendler.

Four Israeli settlers were shot dead in their car in a drive-by attack in the occupied West Bank on Tuesday, on the eve of a U.S.-sponsored Middle East peace summit in Washington. The armed wing of the Islamist Hamas movement, the Islamist group which controls the Gaza Strip and opposes peace talks, claimed responsibility for the shooting in a statement.

Those images, plus photos like these, are far more relevant to the story than the disgraceful illustrations AP photo editors sent last night.

Has Abbas come out publicly yet in condemnation of this violence? If so, can someone post a link to what he said? Thanks.

it is hard to belive. but i know it looks like the truth. the most terrible part of it that kids are involved-kids are not able to have any political opinion, except one they have got from family...we will have new generation of terrorists and it is scary opportunity

Part 1
scary opportunity?
what opportunity?
the opportunity to die? the opportunity to be massacred and pushed into the Mediterranean sea?????

we shouldn't stand idly by and watch our brothers and sisters die at the hands of evil repugnant human beings in the world.
people call the names and refer to them as animals. why do we do this? to make excuses for their behavior. like you excuse a dog for soiling your rug.
Stop excusing them for their action. They are human an they are killing innocent Jews.
Why does the world excuse this behavior? they are happy to go into Iraq or colonies fare off land, but when it comes to Israel defending itself it is the most awful thing in the world. they are still oppressing the nations of this earth.

Come on. Unless you have been on another planet, why would you show surprise!

I expected no more than the "Lack of harsh condemnation"
And the "Forced crowds " on the streets of Gaza.

So now can we hear David Cameron call these"Prisoners of Gaza" evil killers of the unborn child!
