Israeli police probing ‘pogrom’

Mr Olmert said at what could be his last cabinet meeting: “This phenomenon of taking the law into their own hands and of brutal and violent attacks is intolerable… There will be no pogroms against non-Jewish residents.”

A committee of pro-settlement rabbis praised the “courage and heroism” of the Yitzhar settlers, saying their reaction was in accordance with Jewish law, the Haaretz newspaper reported.  >>>>>

The average reader reads this article and finds it difficult that Palestinians are victims of horrific act.  There is actually a supportive quote justifying the pogroms as heroic, but not one quote that labels Palestinians as victims.  This is done by design so as to champion the cause of their oppression while still gingerly admitting they may be a problem.  It also makes future research into abuses a bit more difficult.
