ABOUT THE SHOOTING IN TEL AVIV TONIGHT

  1. Two Palestinian cousins dressed up as Orthodox Jews to shoot up a restaurant
    Four were killed with a few more injured.
  2. The hashtag in Arabic showing the support for this terrorist act translates roughly to "Operation Ramadan"
    Google it. There is tons of support in many communities for acts of terror and many supportive structures. ISIS it ain't, but Hamas and Fatah, the Palestinian parties in the territories, both shared their enthusiastic support. EDIT: my Arabic speaking friend maintains that a sizable portion (though not a majority) of the hashtag usage is Arabic speakers deploring it and the actions.
  3. This will politicized inevitably. But also it is what happened and what is happening.
  4. The situation is intense and tightly bound. But ignorance isn't an option.
