A most racist piece by Jodi Rudoren, who is proving that she can be as zealous in propaganda for Israel as her other colleagues

So Palestinians don't cry and they don't mourn their children.  This is the kind of trash that colonialists used to write about the natives back in another century.  "There were few if any visible tears at the intense, chaotic, lengthy funeral on Monday of Jamal and seven relatives...But the tone, far more fundamentalist than funereal, was also a potent sign of the culture of martyrdom that pervades this place, and the numbness that many here have developed to death and destruction...the mourners, except for a few close relatives inside the mosque, were neither overcome with emotion nor fed up..."  Ms. Rudoren came close to maintaining that the Palestinians expressed gratitude to the Israeli army for killing their children.
