The US State Department has finally condemned the murder of 18-year-old US citizen Ezra Schwartz days after the terror attack that tragically took his life.

Just hours before Ezra was killed, the US State Department issued a particularly harsh response against Israel for the “light” sentence given to a policeman who beat a Palestinian-American teen who was involved in a violent riot against Israel.

People immediately noticed that the US was giving more attention to the Palestinian-American teen than to the three Israeli teens (of whom one was American) who were abducted and murdered by Hamas last year.

Though US Ambassador to Israel Shapiro and Secretary of State Kerry acknowledged the recent terror attack, President Obama has remained silent.

Finally, days after the attack, the US State Department has finally acknowledged and condemned the attack.
