And I thought, "That's not actually anything to do with political correctness. That's just treating other people with respect."
I started imagining a world in which we replaced the phrase "politically correct" wherever we could with "treating other people with respect" and it made me smile.
You should try it. It's peculiarly enlightening.
I know what you're thinking now. You're thinking "Oh my god, that's treating other people with respect gone mad!"
-- Neil Gaiman
There is no excusing this behaviour, whoever did this (we don't know if it definitely was this man yet) is sick and needs to be detained without possibility of parole for the rest of their life. Murdering innocent men, women and children is inexcusable.
Israeli extremism needs to be addressed and with haste. Extremism among ultra orthodox Jews within Israeli have been given voices through senior members of the government and by the indifference and assistance of the police and the IDF. Until all of these elements are addressed I fear that Israeli extremism will continue to grow and it will be at the cost of innocent Palestinian lives.

FTA: "The new Justice minister, Ayelet Sheked, justified the burning alive of a Palestinian teenager by Israeli youths in East Jerusalem…. Rabbi Eli Ben-Dahan, the new deputy defense minister, declared: “(Palestinians) are beasts, they are not humans” and “A Jew always has a much higher soul than a gentile, even if he is a homosexual.” CommDigiNews – The new Israeli government is taking an extreme stance regarding a possible Palestinian state. Prime Minister Netanyahu, during his campaign for re-election, said that a Palestinian state would never be established while he was in power."
