Washington - The Obama administration is condemning an arson attack by suspected Jewish extremists in the West Bank that killed a Palestinian toddler, branding it a “vicious terrorist” act that must be punished.

In a Friday statement, the State Department welcomed Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s condemnation of the attack and called for Israeli authorities to arrest the perpetrators and bring them to justice. It also urged all sides to maintain calm and not escalate tensions.

The sleeping toddler was burned to death when the assailants set fire to two Palestinian homes early Friday, also critically wounding the child’s 4-year-old brother and parents.

The attack has outraged both Israelis and Palestinians and further stirred Palestinian fears that Israel allows attacks by militant Jewish settlers in the West Bank to go unpunished.

so this is terrorism but the MUSLIM shootings at military facilities is "workplace violence" according to Obama. and "some folks" killed in a kosher restaurant. I hope all the liberal Jews who voted for Obama can bask in his glory.

Hey, it took Obama 18 days to condemn the kidnapping of 3 innocent boys last summer. Why so quick now & who says it was done by Israelis?

What does Obama have to do with this? Somebody killed this little baby and injured the family, not to mention destroying their home. This act was wrong and no amount of pointing fingers at Obama will change that.

They do every time. However, if you don't read a newspaper you'd never know about it.

Frum Yidden must be the biggest whiners -- and liars, yes, liars -- on the planet. Whenever the U.S. condemns the killing of an Arab civilian by a Jew, the cry goes up "But they never condemn Arab terrorism against Jews." But of course if you Google specific Arab terrorist attacks against Jews you can find that indeed the U.S. has condemned those attacks -- depending on when the attack occurred, sometimes it was Pres. Bush (previous administration), sometimes VP Cheney, sometimes Sec. of State Condoleezza Rice, sometimes President Obama, sometimes VP Biden, sometimes Sec of State Clinton or Kerry, etc. So please stop the whining and lying.

You need Obama to tell you that this murder? Who cares how long it takes him to condemn Arabs. We, all Yidden, should be ashamed that this is what this act has lead to. Don't give me Muslims or Obama They are animals so we can be? This has nothing to do with them. You want to be compared to them? This is the definition of Chill Hashem and if you can't see it, shame on you

first of all we dont know who did it so im glad to see everybody is already codemning the jewish settlers. 2nd the israeli govt condemned it right away without having to be told to like some people in the us govt!!!! but whats amazing about all of this is that the white house the state dept and U.N. all condemned it in the strongest terms as if the prime minister did this, they are all hypocrites and anti semites because they could care less about the slaughter going on around the world by real terrorist entities and govts so all of you who defend them get a life and wake up because we jews are under attack from all sides in america europe and the mid-east and everybody could care less

As Sen. Cruz has correctly stated, the Obama Administration has now positioned itself to be the biggest financier of terrorism in the world, thanks to their obsession with their own legacy via shoving the Iran deal down our throats. Hypocrites.
