Obama White House Accuses both Palestinians and Israelis of Terrorism

As the Free Beacon [1] put it:

As the number of Israelis murdered during a streak of Palestinian terrorism continues to rise, the Obama administration sought to equate the sides and told reporters that, in its view, Israel is guilty of terrorism.

“Individuals on both sides of this divide are—have proven capable of, and in our view, are guilty of acts of terrorism,” State Department Spokesman John Kirby told [2] reporters following questions about the spike in violence.

Kirby also said the administration has obtained “credible reports [3]” of Israelis using excessive force as it deals with a rash of terrorist murders carried out by Palestinians seeking to cause havoc and spark an intifada.
