With arrest of six Jews in Arab teenís killing, Israel confronts its own extremists
Washington Post ^ | July 7, 2014 | By Ruth Eglash, Sufian Taha and Griff Witte

JERUSALEM — Israel reckoned with rising homegrown extremism Sunday as it arrested six Jewish suspects who are believed to have burned to death an Arab teenager in revenge for the killing of three Israeli teens.

The arrests shocked those on both sides of the Israeli-Palestinian divide — Palestinians because many had assumed Israel would never act against its own, and Israelis because there had been widespread doubt that Jews could have carried out such a heinous crime.

Sunday’s action could help defuse what has been seen as a dangerous swelling of Palestinian anger, with violent protests in East Jerusalem and Arab towns in northern Israel feeding fears of a budding intifada. Demonstrators who have called for an uprising against the Israeli occupation have decried the lack of justice and had bitterly predicted that 16-year-old Mohammad Abu ­Khieder’s killers would never face trial.

But by arresting the suspects, who were said by security officials to have killed Khieder for ­“nationalistic” reasons, the Israeli government must confront ­extremist elements within its ­society. . .

You can't defuse madness within Palestinians, they're always mad and seething with anger. The only way to defuse them is to kill them.

If Israel is hoping that swift justice will calm things down, they’re probably mistaken. There is not enough blood on planet earth to appease the nice muslims.

I wanted some type of reckoning after the 3 Israeli boys were killed, but not the death of yet another boy :-(

Strong actions taken against the Hamas leadership is totally justified...but the torture and murder of this Arab boy was a horrific misdeed and should be punished with a life sentence or even a death sentence.

Hamas needs to be wiped out! Gaza needs to be re-taken along with all other so-called occupied territories and all should be annexed. Any that wish to remain must be driven out if they will not pledge loyalty to the Jewish state..it’s past time to remove the poison from inside Israel.

I weep because of the senselessness that is the ME.

Was there an editorial on the Palis needing to confront their extremists?

If a school full of Jewish children were murdered by Palis the world would still tell Israel don’t unleash hell upon the Palis so full of anti-semitism much of the world is.

Israel needs to stop appeasing Palestinian scum, and, go after PLO/Hamas for what they did to the 3 Jewish teens

Those in charge in Israel are the political equivalent of the Republicans in the US, reputed to hate Obama and be really conservative, but in the end not so tough as the image presented.

WILL THEY OR HAVE THEY ALREADY CAVED ON IRAN’S NUCLEAR WEAPONS DEVELOPMENT OR WILL THEY ULTIMATELY ALLOW A PALESTINIAN STATE?????

“Israel needs to stop appeasing Palestinian scum, and, go after PLO/Hamas for what they did to the 3 Jewish teens.”

Israel must kill the terrorists who murdered the Jewish children and come to understand that the settlers were likely acting under wartime duress after being victimized and oppressed by the Islamic terrorists.

oh ..so now that a few Israelis decided to do what was done to their Jewish teens - and target an Arab teen ...we need to have a serious discussion on Jewish Extremism...Really?

Least we forget Washington Post - Islamic aggression is far and wide spread - they kill Christians by the dozens on a daily average - but never have I seen or read an article about why the Islamic Community needs to have a serious sit down and talk about the extremism within Islam....

I seriously hate the US News - all of them - what panderers - what idiots - self-important inner reflecting gloats!

Uh, huh. The Israelis must confront their few extremists while the PA, which is run by extremists, gets a pass.

That’s why you aren’t witnessing any parades or celebrations of these suspects in Israel so far

Confronted, as though arresting killers is unusual in Israel. I'm sure the palestinians will turn in the killers of the three Jewish teens, and that the palestinian police are furiously searching for them.
