The Jerusalem Post now reports that one Jew has confessed, and we are waiting for facts.
Before equating the murders we must hear the same sorts of condemnation from Arabs of all walks of life about the murder of Jews as we hear from Jews about the murder of an Arab. That would be a sign that they are getting closer, but words aren't enough. While Jews are sick at the idea that there could possibly be a Jew willing and capable of such a murder, we have not heard any equivalent reactions from Arabs. That's all further proof that we are very far from true peace. There is no equivalency between the murders!
