Evil J Street blames the boys

J Street's Jeremy Ben Ami uses the murder of ‪#‎EyalGiladNaftali‬ to slam Israel and suggest the boys had it coming to them. In his latest article, Ben Ami demands that Israelis "recognize the real and legitimate pain felt on the Palestinian side." He then goes on to suggest that the murdered boys had it coming to them because Palestinians "see the very act of attending yeshiva in a West Bank settlement as provocation." Never mind that the so-called "settlement" where the boys lived, Kfar Etzion, existed long before 1967. What happened to this "settlement," you might be asking? Palestinian Arabs massacred its people a day before Israel's Declaration of Independence and a short time later, the Jordanian army made Judea Judenrein until Jordan lost the territory in the Six Day War. J Street using this tragedy to promote its political agenda and distort the history of the conflict is one thing. Using it to blame the victims for their own murder is a whole 'nother level of shamelessness. Read Jeremy Ben Ami's screed and weep:
