From the Elder of Ziyon, an important contrast:
[T]he murder of the Henkins is like the murders of Mohammed Abu Khdeir or of the Dawabashe family. In those cases the victims were targeted.
And when you compare apples to apples, the difference between the morality of those Zionists h [sic] despises and the Palestinians he loves becomes crystal clear.
Because Israeli society, from the Prime Minister to the people on the street, rose as one to condemn the murder of Abu Khdeir.
Because Israelis raised cash to pay the victims of the Dawabashe arson/murder.
Because the vast majority of Israelis are naturally disgusted and ashamed at the thought that one of their own could be responsible for such depravity.
And how did Palestinians react to the murder of the Henkins? They celebrated. They shot off fireworks. The expressed uniform happiness on Facebook.
I could not find a single Arabic voice in any message board or social media. As of this moment, a single article from Al Quds about the attack - showing the faces of the victims - has 4,500 Likes and 650 Facebook comments, every one uniformly happy that they were murdered.
What does it say about Palestinian society that seemingly no one, from Abbas down to the streets of Nablus, can condemn the murders of the Henkins? What does it say about Palestinian society that the Khaled Abu Toamehs and the Bassam Eids and the Muhammad Zoabis and the Mohammed Dajanis, people who actually think of Jews as human beings, are so rare - and roundly hated?
This is the difference between Israel and its Palestinian neighbors.
This is the difference between a moral society and one that is perverted.
That is the difference between a society that deserves respect and one that demands it.
