Administration Condemns Murder of Ezra Schwartz

American teen-ager Ezra Schwartz was murdered by Palestinian terrorists while on his way to deliver food to Israeli soldiers. The U.S. ambassador to Israel condemned the attack almost immediately, the State Department condemned the attack the next day, and both President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry condemned the attack and called Ezra’s family the day after his funeral. Our outrage should be directed toward the terrorists, not an administration that quickly and repeatedly condemned the attacks and has proven itself to be a strong friend of Israel again and again.
