    I find it very interesting the way that this man is written about and framed, compared to, say, the Palestinian who went on a bulldozer rampage in Jerusalem a couple of years ago. This Jewish man is depicted as a 'serial killer', a lone, mad individual unconnected to his society. The Palestinian, on the other hand, was not depicted as a lone individual who had flipped out, but rather as the usual political terrorist. So my question is this: if this 'serial killer' has done what is claimed (or even if this is merely what is suspected), will he be treated to the usual 'terrorist' treatment of housing demolition punishing his family etc? .... Didn't think so. It's fascinating that 'terrorism' is only ever something done by Others (who share collective responsibility for it), but when it is done by 'us' it's a different story.
