For nearly three weeks, international media outlets found it tough to relate to the abduction and murder of Eyal Yifrah, Gil-Ad Sha’ar and Naftali Fraenkel. To them, the story that seized Jews in Israel and abroad was an insignificant, if unhappy, story that was not worthy of front-page coverage.

What a difference a day makes: As of this writing , Britain’s BBC and Guardian websites, and American CNN, USA Today and ABC websites feature the murder of Muhammad Hussein Abu Khdeir this morning, plus extensive footage of the rioting. All mentioned the possibility that  the murder could have been a revenge attack for the triple homicide of the teenage “settlers,” but none mentioned the police’s primary avenue of investigation at the moment: A Palestinian honor killing related to the possibility that the victim was homosexual.

One can assume the difference in coverage was not motivated by anti-Semitism. Rather, song rallies and synagogue prayer services hardly make for good media. Burning tires look much better than praying Jews on the front page.

Who said violence doesn’t pay?

    Yeah you’re right. But dont worry our Mighty God will fight for you. I love you Israel.

  2. Sad that there was barely a mention of anything until the boys were found. Now that a Palestinian teen has been killed, it is on a constant media loop. No parent should have to go through what the Jewish families and the Palestinian family are going through.

  3. Lisa Kamins says:

    see when our 3 boys go missing, no one says anything, no reaction. when they are murdered it takes them a hours to days to respond. an arab kid gets murdered, and surprise, surprise, all over the international news. Jew haters, the lot of them

  6. International media is for highest Arab bidder,no one trust them any more.

  7. I called it. A fakeastilian propaganda stunt to garner support for their Nazi cause. Kahane was right!!!

  8. Shoot yourself Nazi skank.

  9. Gary Gien says:

  11. Omg … WHO WRITES FOR YOU ! ARE YOU SERIOUS ?!?

  12. Both Israelian og arabs now claim the same, no headlines for their murdered youth. So how come the world knows about both of them?

    Untill the Jews own and protect their identity, self regardless of what the world will say, the pigs in the muddle east and their comrades in destruction will continue to cry more than the bereaved!

  17. Uzi Kattan says:

    Jews need to use violence against this violence since the government won’t do anything about it.

  19. I am surprised that you expected different reactions. We are Jews, they have no use for us.

  21. Obama may be the occupier of the WH elected by the under informed, but he does not represent the majority of TRUE AMERICANS who support ISRAEL and the challenges they face. Obama is truely a shameful president, I apologize to the people of ISRAEL for his lack of leadership and ability!!!! He is pitiful.

  23. what happened to him is outrageous as well but enough is enough Jewish blood is not cheap the rest of the world we will get justice! To borrow a phrase from our black brothers ” NO JUSTICE NO PEACE”

  24. Anyone who wants there to be no Jews whether it is through annihilation or by converting them to Christianity is a Jew hater. Sometimes I wonder if Jews are a little slow. We are surrounded by enemies everywhere whether they hide it or proclaim it and excuses to ignore are constantly made to give our enemies the benefit of a doubt as if they are bad children whom we did a bad job raising. We write papers, do studies, create treatment and dialogue while they kill us.We are more forgiving than Christians have ever tried to be. And we worry about what gentiles think about everything we do. We see them as friends and equals trying to do the right thing. When have they?? It’s time for Israel to try a little “Go to hell!” and stop being a doormat.We’re the ones they should be worried about “opening the gates of hell” on them.

  25. The wolves who cries awooooo

  26. I would not be surprised if he was killed by his own people, just to make a big mess

  27. Sharon Levin says:

    Hate that another murder happened

  28. The safety and freedom our children have here in Canada is something to never to take for granted. The impact this atrocity on these young boys has had on me is beyond words. My eldest son being the age of one of these slain boys. I cannot begin to imagine the grief the mothers and families are experiencing. One day God will make things right. He will wipe away all the tears …Hear Israel’s cry oh Lord and comfort and protect her. Amen

  29. Don Mallen says:

    I was born in 1950. It seems that through most of my life Arab extremists have tryed to destroy Israel. I see no peace before I'm history. But I know that Israel's resolve, vigilence and determination to thrive will be its armor against its enemies.
