HPW: State Department Advisory

As we mentioned earlier, the Huffington Posts' "Religion" section decided to cover a story about the US State Department issuing a travel advisory about religious neighborhoods in Jerusalem, after spinning the headline like a dreidel.

As we mentioned earlier, there were many examples of "didn't read the article" syndrome, i.e. posters that immediately typed out a screed against the Israeli government for daring to tell Americans what to do. Since it's hard to say which of those were motivated by laziness versus anger, I'm not going to spend too much time about that. There were however some who took the opportunity to make it about "the Jews."
