Caught up

"Controversy has erupted at UC Santa Barbara over a professor's decision to send his students an e-mail in which he compared graphic images of Jews in the Holocaust to pictures of Palestinians caught up in Israel's recent Gaza offensive." Somebody needs to study the propaganda language of US press on the Arab-Israeli conflict. Look at the simple expression "caught up." It means that they were in a bad situation for which no one is to blame.
