HPW: Israeli Soldier Killed by Sniper

I blogged earlier today about the murder of an Israeli soldier by a Lebanese sniper and the HP's extremely biased coverage of it. Now it's time to take a look at the comments.

Like most articles where Israelis are victims of violence, there were very few comments, about 70 in total. The usual suspects did arrive on the thread though, to justify the murder, to deflect, to whine about how Palestinians etc. never get coverage on the Huffington Post while Israelis always do, and to wring their hands about Israel's "disproportionate" response.

The sympathy for the life of the victim and his family is saved exclusively for non-Israeli victims of violence.

Hey guys we've started to employ a slight comment policy. We used to have completely open comments but then people abused it. So our comment policy is such: No obvious trolling or spamming. And be warned: unlike the Huffington Post we actually enforce our comment policy.
