The United States on Wednesday accused Israel of targeting members of a Palestinian family whose teenage son was kidnapped and killed in July, including two cousins, who are US citizens.
Tensions between Palestinians and Israelis in Jerusalem plunged to a new low on July 2 when 16-year-old Mohammed Abu Khdeir was snatched from a street in Jerusalem and later found burned alive.
Israeli police arrested six alleged Jewish extremists as suspects and on July 17 charged three, freeing the others.
The death of the Arab teen - thought to have been carried out in retaliation for the abduction and killing of three Israeli teens in late June - sparked rioting by Islamists throughout the country.
Three days after his death, on July 5, the United States slammed Israel's arrest of a 15-year-old cousin, Tarek Abu Khdeir, 15, a US citizen. Tarek was arrested as he took part in violent riots, and police said they found a slingshot on him, and that he attacked police and resisted arrest, while others were hurling rocks and molotov cocktails at them.
He was allegedly beaten in detention and has since been freed and returned to Florida.
Israeli authorities have launched an investigation into the incident.
On July 28, another cousin of Abu Khdeir, also American, was arrested in Israel as well, the State Department said Wednesday.

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
STHU. Can you hear me now, you despicable Cretin-in-Chief?
move the USA embassy to Israel’s capital first
then ask whatever questions you want
Israel has no reason whatsoever to answer questions from a country that doesn’t even have the simple decency of placing its embassy in her capital city
what an embarassment we have in WashDC these days!
Please pray for America!
It seems the dominate role of the US is to be the worlds instigator, keeping chaos and turmoil thriving, a technique uniquely patterned after islam.
Would it be wrong to assume obama has everything to do with that?
No mention of the fact that one of the kidnapped and murdered Jewish teens was an American Citizen. Bias? Nah, never in the MSM, they’re objective. Just ask them.
Tarek Abu Khdeir, 15, a US citizen. Tarek was arrested as he took part in violent riots, and police said they found a slingshot on him, and that he attacked police and resisted arrest, while others were hurling rocks and molotov cocktails at them.
Tarik, come home, you're needed in Ferguson.
