Obama administration accuses Israel of "terrorism"

The Wash. Free Beacon (via Accuracy in Media) reports that Obama's bunch have resorted to some of the worst moral equivalence at the worst possible time:
As Palestinians assailants continue to murder Jews across Israel, the Obama administration on Wednesday accused the Jewish state of committing acts of “terrorism,” drawing outrage from many observers.

As the number of Israelis murdered during a streak of Palestinian terrorism continues to rise, the Obama administration sought to equate the sides and told reporters that, in its view, Israel is guilty of terrorism.

“Individuals on both sides of this divide are—have proven capable of, and in our view, are guilty of acts of terrorism,” State Department Spokesman John Kirby told reporters following questions about the spike in violence.

Kirby also said the administration has obtained “credible reports” of Israelis using excessive force as it deals with a rash of terrorist murders carried out by Palestinians seeking to cause havoc and spark an intifada.

“We’re always concerned about credible reports of excessive use of force against civilians, and we routinely raise our concerns about that.”

At least three Israelis have been killed and another 20 wounded as a result of attacks by Palestinian terrorists in recent days.

The violence has prompted pushback from the Obama administration, much of it aimed at Israeli itself.

Secretary of State John Kerry, for instance, said he sympathized with Palestinian “frustration” in a statement that accused Israel of boosting the construction of so-called “settlements,” or Jewish homes in historically Jewish areas of the country.
The administration appears to be following up on Abbas' own lies, like his claim that Israel "murdered" a juvenile terrorist. But contrary to what Abbas has been blood-libeling, the creepy little offender is very much alive, and will be prosecuted for his crime.

What's truly mind-boggling here is that at the same time they're using this gross language, the State Department's been promoting a Muslim cleric who called for murdering US soldiers. And all they care about is whatever Israel does? Truly disgusting.

Update: the police released video footage showing the crime committed by the two jihad knifers.

Update 2: Netanyahu warned against drawing false symmetries.

Update 3: now the US administration is backtracking on its initial comments. Unfortunately, they'll probably say what they did again when they feel like it.
