A Jewish teen was sentenced to life in prison and a second teen to 21 years in prison for kidnapping and murdering a Palestinian teen by burning him to death in the Jerusalem Forest.
Israel will remove the name of a slain Palestinian teen from a national monument to “Victims of Terrorism” in response to a request from his family, a government spokesman said on Wednesday.
Mohammed Abu Khdeir, the Palestinian teen who was kidnapped and burned alive by Jews in a revenge killing, was recognized as a terror victim on the national memorial.
Two key turning points took place last week in the slippery slope to Israel’s growing international isolation, J.J. Goldberg writes. And then there was a third that is — um — a load of crap.
Leah Bieler has always been proud of how her Jewish community responds to racial issues. But with the Gaza war rocking Israel this summer, she herself turned into a racist.
Tariq Khdeir, the Palestinian-American teen beaten by Israeli soldiers in an attack caught on video, is back home. But he insists he will return to Jerusalem one day.
A shrine to revenge victim Mohammed Abu Khdeir lies on his bed: a photo, his favorite checkered shirt, and a schoolbag. It only reminds them of the brutality of his murder.
Tariq Abu Khdeir posed no threat to the Israeli police officers who beat him up, Emily Hauser writes. So why has only one American Jewish organization condemned the assault?
Edgar Bronfman warned decades ago that Israeli settlement building would harm Jews and Palestinians. As both sides lose kids to kidnap-murders, his son Adam Bronfman sees he was right.
Israel concocted ‘honor killing’ and ‘family feud’ theories about revenge attack victim Mohammed Abu Khdeir. The slurs constitute a deliberate blood libel, Lara Friedman argues.
