Kerry's 'random acts of violence'

Nine months ago, President Hussein Obama referred to the victims of the Paris terror attack on a Kosher grocery store as 'random folks.' Now, Secretary of State Kerry has the same disdainful attitude about Israelis.
Secretary of State John Kerry on Monday said the violent attacks taking place by Palestinians against Jewish people in Israel are "random acts of violence."
"We continue to urge everybody to exercise restraint and restrain from any kind of self-help in terms of the violence, and Israel has every right in the world to protect its citizens, as it has been, from random acts of violence," Kerry said in Madrid, Spain after meeting with Spanish Foreign Minister Jose Manuel Garcia-Margallo.
Kerry's remark is likely to lead to complaints that the Obama administration is downplaying what Israel says is a premeditated plan to murder Jews in Israel. Palestinian religious leaders have called for these attacks, and Israel has said its counterattacks have been defensive in nature.
Critics of the Obama administration have also said officials are treating the violence as equivalent, by calling on "both sides" to help reduce tensions.
The acts of violence are surely not random, and both sides definitely do not share the blame equally for them. The acts of violence are clearly being perpetrated almost exclusively by 'Palestinians.'
