Israelis, not Jews

Re: The July 7 story “6 Jews arrested in teen’s killing,” I was disturbed to see the blatant anti-Semitism implied by your headline. If the situation had been reversed, your headline most likely would have read “6 Palestinians arrested in teen’s killing” with no reference to their presumed Muslim faith.

Your headline should have referred to “Israelis” and left the issue of their assumed religious affiliation out of the story. You have simply added to the growing anti-Semitic narrative in both America and Europe.
