Jodi Rudoren Censored, HPers Spread Anti-Semitism

The Huffington Post covered the media story of New York Times reporter Jodi Rudoren being "monitored" on her social media account. The HP article gave the reason she was being monitored: 
"During the recent violence in Gaza, Rudoren caused outrage when she wrote on Facebook that Palestinians "have such limited lives" and added, "I've been surprised that when I talk to people who just lost a relative, or who are gathering belongings from a bombed-out house, they seem a bit ho-hum." Sullivan said that this and a passage in which Rudoren wrote that she shed her "first tears" in Gaza over a letter from an Israeli friend "came off as insensitive and the reaction was sharp, not only from media pundits, but also from dismayed readers." Rudoren herself told Sullivan that her choice of words had been "ridiculous.""
So describing the Palestinians as being "ho-hum" about the deaths of relatives, would you say that is a pro-Palestinian position, or an anti-Palestinian position?

But who cares about the actual facts of the case, when a journalist is being "censored" and Israel is associated with that journalist, we all know who's to blame!
