The beating and arrest in Jerusalem of Tarek Abu Khdeir, 15, a Florida high school student, is getting considerable attention in the U.S. The State Department has issued a “profoundly troubled” statement calling on Israel to investigate the beating and provide “full accountability,” and there was a White House rally about the case yesterday attended by relatives of the boy– photo above, from the Council on American-Islamic Relations, which is following the matter closely. The story was on ABC News this morning, the Baltimore Sun has published a sympathetic story, in part because Abu Khdeir was born in Baltimore. And the New York Times has covered the case twice now–Jodi Rudoren and Robert Mackey.
