Huffington Poster Reactions to Christine Logan

This might be another example of a case of the ethereal standard, but on the other hand it may not be close enough to make the cut. Anyway, remember how when Israel is accused of wrongdoing the facts go right out the window? We have commented in the past how many Huffington Post talkbackers still cling to their narrative of a "massacre" on the Gaza flotilla, even after the Huffington Post itself posted the videos of the not-so-peaceful "peace activists" attacking the soldiers. This continued even among Huffington Post bloggers.

But now the Christine Logan story has come out. And now that it looks like someone who isn't an Israeli Jew has killed an American, suddenly everyone turns into Sherlock freaking Holmes. For example:

Can you imagine any of them being that suspicious if, say, it were IDF soldiers who were being accused instead of two Arab men? Of course, it goes without saying that more than a few Huffington Posters immediately said (or implied) that they believed the woman was lying. Why would she lie? Who knows, but that's what they think:

Isn't it funny how the same people who are willing to instantly believe anything at face value as long as it makes Israel look bad now are reading the article with a fine tooth comb after cranking their levels of suspicion to the maximum? It's not like anyone is accusing their precious Palestinian friends of committing the crime, either.

Anyway, just to conclude, here are a couple of posters who even though the eyewitness said the crime was done by two Arabs, thinks we should considering blaming Jews just to be on the safe side:

Welcome to the Huffington Post.
