responding to tragedy

As everyone who has not been living in a cave knows, some Arab terrorists recently murdered three Israeli boys.  Many people are using this incident to reconfirm every preexisting prejudice they ever had. 

The far Left is using this as an excuse to show that the Israelis are just as bad as the Arabs, because after all the Israelis do bad stuff too.

The nationalist/neocon Right is looking for excuses to blame Obama.

Personally, I think it is useful to think of some of the last few lines of the Amidah: “O Lord… to those who abuse me may I give no heed.”  Also, “as for those who may think evil against me, do thou frustrate their counsel and undo their designs.”
