It is really important that these murder suspects are described as ‘ISRAELI’ and not ‘Jewish’. The majority of Israelis are Jews, but the majority of Jews are NOT Israeli!
Propaganda and racial incitement are cheap, but facts are sacred.

At TBellchambers , perhaps we should call them Israeli Jews. Now, another point, it is a thoughtful gesture to call the boy’s father. But what most Palestinians want is to Israel to stop this from happening. Bibi should start taking some steps for peace like stop the settlements and retreat to Israel’s internationally recognised borders, stop the collective punishment of the Palestinian people, stop the constant abuse of force, and so on.

TBell: reread the article. Your statement is incorrect. Suspects are Jews, about 20% of Israelis are not Jewish.
I wonder did Abbas call the parents of the murdered Jewish teenagers to promise justice?

Israel is a nation of Western culture and law. As such, her leadership apologises for murders committed by its citizens, to all concerned – the victims family and the Palestinian leadership, in this case, and prosecutes the murders.

Where are the responses from the Palestinians for the murder of the three Jewish boys?

@surgio
You have made my point for me.
Violence and extremism are essentially Israeli settler characteristics that are completely unknown in the Jewish communities of NY, Paris, London or Manchester. And that is why the Netanyahu government with its contempt for international law should not be associated with the free trade area of the European Union.

I often point out the ridiculous way in which Israel prolongs this conflict. While the Palestinians are no angels, Israel never does anything to solve the problem and expect the US to back all of their bad behavior. But the Palestinian President had an opportunity to do what Netanyahu did and he failed miserably. This conflict will never be solved by it’s current leaders who are prideful and power hungry. New leadership comprised of people who are willing to make peace through compromise and friendship is the only way.
