Good Terror and Bad Terror
As reported in Haaretz, Israel's Foreign Ministry has appropriately expressed its anger at Pope Benedict's failure to mention terror in Israel in a speech that condemned the recent attacks in Egypt, Britain, Turkey and Iraq, but omitted the bombing in Netanya and other terrorism against Israelis.
Israel's Foreign Ministry is right to protest the Vatican's blatant double standard, but has been too slow to protest similar omissions of terror against Israelis by European leaders and even at times by President Bush.
The reality is that the world places murder of Jews in a category separate from murder of everyone else, and too often, the Israeli government fails to express its anger.
Hopefully the criticism of Benedict is more than a one-time adjustment to Israel's response.
