HPW: Palestinian Teen Shot

Despite the biased headline and subject matter, the recent thread about a Palestinian teen shot by the IDF actually wasn't too bad in terms of comments. It helped that the Huffington Post buried the thread, and that it was published somewhat late in the day. Anyway, those offensive comments that were posted all declared the teen was "murdered" and generally attacked Israel, Israelis, and Zionism. Take a look:

Look long and hard for equivalent comments in the Syria university bombing thread, in which dozens were killed.
