Palestinians Destroy Gaza Synagogues

As the IDF left the Gaza Strip, ending the Israeli presence there, Palestinians charged in, looting, burning and destroying the synagogues left behind. One can only imagine the international outcry had Israelis destroyed even one deserted Muslim mosque–the mere rumor that a Koran may have been mishandled was enough to spark widespread media condemnation—but here much of the media, following the Palestinian lead, justified the rampaging as an understandable reaction to what they called "38 years of Israeli occupation" in the Gaza Strip and turned the tables to criticize Israel.

CAMERA has documented some of the media response. Read about it here.
