The Double Standard of Freedom of Religion

In the wake of the tragic events of today in Israel, I feel that it is again most necessary for us to articulate the hypocrisy and double standard of many of the critics of Israel. Why is it that we are always being called upon to respect the religious sites of others -- even though Israel has a sparkling record in its preservation of religious freedom -- yet an attack in a shul will still be met with expressions of sympathy for the terrorists in that they have to go so far? Can someone not see that if a person is willing to kill people who are simply praying, there is a further statement about the person's very psychology?

That's nothing. CNN said that attack was on a mosque and other news services were careful to avoid the words "Palestinian" and "Arab".
