That said, the media didn't plant the bombs. They're just reporting
whatever they think will keep people watching.

yeah.... I seem to remember something in the news about North Korea being a real serious threat. What happened
to that threat or story?

LOL. They got awful quiet. NK negotiating style has always been: "NO! Yeeeees..... NO! Release the tiger! ....... <silence>......

I think they just enjoy grandstanding, but they know they'd get their asses kicked if they tried doing anything serious.

those of us in Israel are more concerned about the insanity that is Syria at the moment.

Yeah, your people need to have more heavily armed citizens to defend against your looney neighbors.

Actually, we trust our military to defend us.

I'm pretty sure it's not the Military that IGgy doesn't trust.  ;-)

I don't trust the current commander in chief and sincerely hope that something very very very bad happens to him very very very soon.

hope is different from intent.

Exactly. I have no *intent* to either enact "something very very very bad" or even incite others to do so. Nevertheless, I'm sure I'm already on every watchlist in the universe already (although I *did* fly without getting harassed by the gestapo earlier this year)

Even supposedly pro-Israel Fox News won't report this, 

Syrians are being brought into Israel every day to get medical treatment. 

Here's one story from the doctor treating a young Syrian girl:


So there's a 12 year old girl from Syria in the pediatric ICU for some time. I had the opportunity to do several xrays on her. One night, I arrive and the security guard (a guard or soldier is posted by each Syrian patient) tells me that the father has been brought in by the Shabak to be with the daughter. I walk up to the bed and the father greets me with a smile and a handshake. He then proceeds to speak to me in Arabic. Apparently, he's never seen a religious jew before and with my head cover and beard assumed I was some sort of Muslim. When I didn't respond fluently his smile turned into a puzzled look. The guard (a druze who spoke arabic) brought him to the side so I could do my job. Believe it or not, I have a very good bedside manner, especially with kids. After I was done, the guard came and told me that when he brought the guy to the side that he asked what I was with the getup and all. When he explained that I'm a very religious Jew and thats how we look, the dad got nervous. However, when he saw how nicely and kindly I treated his kid, he started crying and said that he can't believe that none of syria's arab neighbors like lebanon or jordan will take them in but the religious Jew from Israel treats his kid like his own daughter. If only he would pass on his revelation to the rest of his country.

hm, the name of the killed israeli boy next to the syrian border sounds pretty arabic to me?

Muhammed. Yes. Muslim boy. But he was an Israeli citizen, so he's probably an infidel as far as they're concerned. 

As far as we're concerned, they killed a citizen and a child. period.

yes. and I guess this sad news sends out (world wide heard) an historically unparalelled message: The israeli state cares for its citizens regardles of Muslim or Jew.

There's been backlash from (Jewish) citizens that the government has not done enough to comfort/console the family.

Moreover, there's been a lot of criticism that none of the parliament members who are Arab went to the funeral (The Jewish ones may have had concerns for their personal safety, sadly, but there are 12 members of the Knesset who would have no such concern, and didn't attend anyway.)

triL, if that father went back to his country and started telling people how good some Jewish guy was, what, realistically, do you think will happen? Because I imagine he would be killed for speaking like that.

Israel is his country - for all we know, the father was born here, too.

The country is reeling from the news that the bodies of the kidnapped boys were found. 

The feeling is palpable. The radio is playing quiet music. The news reports are more subdued. My Facebook feed is filled with funeral details (the boys will be buried in the cemetery in Modiin, my hometown), pictures of the boys, and political statements from the whole spectrum on how best to prevent situations like this in the future.

Three boys, 19, 16, and 16 are gone. They are gone because they were three Jewish boys living in the only Jewish country in the world. 

One was an American citizen.

Obama is urging restraint. How can he urge restraint when an American citizen is murdered on his way home from school?
