HPers Fall Over Themselves to Defend Murder of Israeli Soldier

Unbelievably, the Huffington Post covered the news of an Israeli soldier murdered in cold blood by a Palestinian he had befriended. Of course, it gave the news a spun headline:

Note the following: a) No picture whatsoever, certainly not of the Israeli soldier, b) the phrase "killed by Palestinian" rather than "murdered", which is what actually happened and c) bringing up the peace talks, which is not directly relevant to the murder and is pure speculation on the Huffington Post's part.

Naturally, the top comments almost all attempted to either change the subject from the murder or justify it. Because the Palestinian national movement is non-violent and really wants peace:

They couldn't even bother to pretend they didn't agree with the murder.
