Condolences...

The blogger known as Arlene from Israel was not the first to share reports of this morning's very bad news. The first couple of reports read like abridgments of the one that's currently at the top of this site:

This web site officially offers our condolences to the families affected by these cowardly murders--U.S., Israeli, and otherwise.

This web site officially calls on Muslims of good will to denounce the murderers...in ways that are not affected by the different possible understandings of words. I read that under Islamic law the penalty for murder is supposed to be negotiated with the bereaved family. Right. If the families seriously, coolheadedly think that the kind of penalties Arlene from Israel is recommending today are appropriate, then the Muslim leaders should walk their talk and do as their law prescribes.
