Tariq Abu Khdeir, with his mother, after being released from an Israeli hospital
The so-called ‘victim,’ Tariq Abu Khdeir, was part of a Palestinian gang of six who were throwing Molotov cocktails, trying to attack police with knives, and hurling rocks with a slingshot at police. Khdeir goes to school in Florida. The edited footage was released by the Palestinians and widely reported around the world.
According to Daniel Danon, Israeli Deputy Defense Minister: “When you look at the pictures it doesn’t look so good. But, when you look at the pictures before you had six teenagers being involved with knives, Molotovs cocktails attacking the police officers. And when they were able to arrest them they resisted the arrest. . It will be fully investigated but sometimes when somebody is attacking a police officer with a knife the use of force, not just in the US, but in Israel is necessary. So you have to look at the complete picture.”

Sadly, Coren insists on adding that most Muslims are peace loving people.
