    On this list, So many excuses for barbarism, its’ always the victims fault. Most of the Beitar reprobates come from Arabic speaking families, their parents kicked out of homes in which they had lived for centuries, in some cases millennia (such as the 25% of the pop of Baghdad, now mostly in Israel). That is no excuse for their behavior. Hypocrites on both sides are thwarting Peace, whilst pretending to be friends. The Beitar rampage was inexcusable and atrocious behavior. That’s the response to all such behavior from whichever side. Doesn’t happen in America? private security guards don’t shoot unarmed young men, just because their black. London doesn’t have riots (which has never happened with Israeli Arabs or Israeli Jews, (perhaps your countries have something to learn, before pontificating?). Morality is about applying one standard for all and typically requires humility if your own side are hardly different. No wonder correspondents on this list are treated with derision.
