If those were Arab students it would be on the front pages of ALL US newspapers

"Several dozens of high school students watching a play portraying the gruelling hardships of life in Vilna's Jewish Ghetto during World War II applauded and cheered the Nazis, during Holocaust Remembrance Day last week.  During the play "Ghetto," which was performed on Wednesday at Tel Aviv's Cameri Theater before audiences from four high schools, some students disrupted the solemn tale by shouting catcalls at the actors, and cheered a Nazi who shot dead a Jew. Others called out "hit him harder" and "way to go" during a scene where a kapo beat a Jew, Army Radio reported Monday.
At the play's conclusion, actor Oded Leopold called from the stage for the audience to halt their applause, and sharply chastised the students' behavior.  "You embarrassed the Jewish people and the Holocaust," Leopold said, adding "I hope what goes on in your heart is different from what came out of your mouths.""
