The parable of those who take [beings or forces] other than God for their protectors is that of the spider which makes for itself a house: for behold, the frailest of all houses is the spider's house. If only they understood this! (Quran 29:41)

It's Isabel Kershner... what do you expect?
"stray Israeli mortar fire killed three Palestinian youths and a 60-year-old man as Israel responded to a rocket attack" Would the New York Times ever report that "stray Palestinian fire killed an Israeli as Hamas responded to air strikes"? They should have a disclaimer at the top of all articles on Israel/Palestine saying "The New York Times shall provide justifications for every Israeli killing of Palestinians." And note how the other 9 Palestinians killed by Israel disappear from the story, as they were killed first and don't fit with the reporting of Israeli airstrikes as "responses".
