    If this was the case of Arabs setting a synagogue ablaze, it would be called by its right name: terrorism or even Islamic terrorism. But since it is the case of Jewish settlers setting fire to a mosque euphemism 'price-tag' is used. Why not call it by what it is: terrorism, or even Jewish terrorism. I've lived through burning and mining of mosques, and those acts led to genocide being commited upon Muslims in my country. Seeing mosques burned in the West Bank and Israel brings those dark days back to memory, just as, I am sure, burning of synagogues would bring back memories of the Holocaust to the Jews. Israel needs to deal with these incidents harshly and promptly. There just isn't an excuse for these acts of terror, and dressing them into something else doesn't lessen their impact.

Why the Jewish establishment won’t condemn the occupation

Unless more U.S. Jews who oppose the occupation become members of established Jewish organizations and donate money, the establishment is unlikely to heed calls of those who want it to condemn the occupation.
