    In an attempt to distance their Israel bashing from this particualr set of murders, the Israel bashers have labelled him "just a nut" without any ideological (specifically, their ideological) prompting. This is dishonest, and they know it. The present murderer is cut from the same cloth as the Sbarro' suicide bomber, the people who killed all of those people at weddings and sedars back in Intifada II, the people who launch rockets at civiliain targets in Israel, the ones who killed Daniel Pearl. So why do these Isreal bashers do it? Because they are determined to turn the threat to Jews or to Israel into a nonfact. They are determined believe that all would be well if only Israel ended the "occupation" without being too specific as to whether they mean the occupation of the West Bank or pre-'67 Israel. They will dismiss any evidence, any murder of any innocent, that gets in the way of that perspective even if the murder is right in front of their eyes. And you wonder why Iranians deny the Holocaust? They are not inconsistent with the Israel bashers; in fact, they lead the way.
