Once again, Islamist terrorist groups murder people who self-identify with the Palestinian cause precisely because they aren't sufficiently Islamist (or in this case, because the person was Christian). ISM ought to realize that in their incessant demonization of Israel they have not only exposed the true nature of the group they purport to support (the Palestinians), but that their actions have bolstered terror groups throughout Gaza and the West Bank.

Hamas has no problem doing the same kind of thing, but does so more judiciously - after all, they fire mortars, rockets and missiles into Israel each with the intent of murdering and maiming anyone they hit. Several non-Israelis have been among the injured and killed, so to spin the article as making the terror group Hamas seem more palatable is distasteful.

I agree, this is ugly & awful from every angle, and it seems the ongoing conflict spawns increasingly more radical & violent groups.

I'm at a loss to understand why "civilian" outsiders get involved. I realize they must feel they're helping in some way, but they're obviously in way over their heads and don't fully understand the forces at work, otherwise I would think they'd stay out of it. Still, I've never been there, so I'm just guessing.

It's depressing that there's no end in sight.

re: #2 CuriousLurker

I can tell you why ISM is involved. ISM's leadership are predominantly radical Maoists more interested in Communist revolution than the Palestinians in particular - this is just one of the things they are in the"revolutionary vanguard" on. It's a cause they can use to recruit with, and it's a way to raise money. They are radical activists who are using provocation and lies to tease out the most violent or politically useful responses they can from the opposition -- think of them like you think of James O'Keefe, they are just at the opposite end of the political spectrum.

re: #3 Thanos

Wow, so then the ISM doesn't really give a damn about anything or anyone, it's all about advancing their own political agenda. I'll have to read up on them, thanks.
