    should be condemned, as should the biased selectivity of the video-maker and those who post it repeatedly.

    •  You know..I don't even care about the bias. (2+ / 0-)

      And this is why.   Every little clip of anyone remotely Arab or Muslim will play on an endless loop across the blogosphere, or at least referenced..the "Palestinians danced over 9/11!!!!" clips.  Never mind what actually happened.  

      Americans rarely get to see "the other side" of the coin.   The "Muslims behaving badly" will hit CNN.   This won't.

      This one time "normal" kids, not the settlers who almost everyone here agress are nuts or extremists, spout something off in public and now, well it's just wrong!

      •  Yes indeed -- they are wrong. (4+ / 0-)

        And it is also wrong to use this video in a fashion that suggests a generally held view among Israelis.


        •  But was it used so? (1+ / 0-)

          I honestly did not take that away from it.  It said more about a certain subset of young American Jews, either returning home or planning to stay (and the one kid I remember who sounded local).

          And THAT subset needs their ears boxed, they need to know that Americna all find it repulsive and unacceptable.

          •  I think it was used that way (0+ / 0-)

            at least by others to spew their Israel-hating venom. And I bet if I checked out some other sites I'd find it used that way there too.
