No Prejudice and No Discrimination

The other day, there was a ruckus.  A group of religious fanatics attacked policemen, endangering their lives.  A policewomen was taken hostage after severely beaten and stabbed.  Only after police agreed to release prisoners was the woman released herself in exchange.

Did this happen in the hills of Samaria with the "Youthtop Youth"?

Did this happen in the Casbah of Hebron where rocks were thrown at policemen before?

Did this happen at Amona?

No, at none of these places. 

It happened at Peki'in.  They weren't Jews - but Druze.

Can you imagine this happening, say, in Hebron?  Or in Homesh? Or in Gush Katif in the summer of '05?

Dare I think that this is blatant discrimination?

Druze does ryhme with Jews but there the similarity stops.

Some might think it admirable that a potentially explosive situation was defused in this way.

Well, if so (and these people are mainly bleeding-heart liberals), can we have them sympathize with Jews in parallel situations when attacked by ill-disciplined police personnel?

No prejudice, no discrimination
