Not So Fast!
by Yitz of Jerusalem
While the worldwide mainstream media has been very quick to label the murder of an Arab, found this morning in the Jerusalem forest, as a "revenge" killing, there are indications otherwise.
The Muqata quoted IDF Radio:
"The investigation is looking in all directions now, but according to IDF radio, it would seem the boy was kidnapped due to "honor struggles" within the boy's family. His 7-year-old brother was the victim of an alleged kidnapping last week, reinforcing claims that the kidnapping is not based on revenge/nationalistic bias, but due to criminal intent within the family. The police reportedly have suspects in custody under interrogation."
Here is a public statement from Yishai Frenkel, uncle of murdered teen, Naftali (translated from the Hebrew):
"We don't know exactly what transpired tonight in East Jerusalem and the incident is under investigation by the police. Regardless, if in fact the Arab youth was murdered for a nationalistic reason, then that act is shocking and bloodcurdling. There is no difference between blood. Murder is murder regardless of nationality. There is no justification. No forgiveness and no atonement for murder."

Senior Official: Arab Teen's Murder Criminal, not Nationalistic
Ex-police official says teen's murder likely inside job, condemns 'irresponsible' reaction of officials blaming Jews.
A senior former police official argues that the abduction and murder of the Arab youth who was found dead Wednesday morning was most likely a criminal act, rejecting the claim that Jewish "revenge" for the murdered Israeli teens lay behind it.
The official noted that the family of the murdered 16-year-old was well known to police sources in Jerusalem, adding "it's a problematic family with internal clashes that have been ongoing for many years."
"I have no doubt that as time passes it will be clarified that the murder was criminal and nothing more," declared the official, who spoke to Arutz Sheva on condition of anonymity.
Meanwhile, the Arabs have been rioting and throwing pipe bombs like crazy. Just look at these headlines:
