Dennis & Judi are always calling out the media for being imbalanced in its coverage of national and world events. For instance, this story has been largely ignored by mainstream media, yet warrants some attention because of how close it hits to home.

Last Thursday, Ezra Schwartz, an 18-year old American boy, who was studying in Israel for the year, was murdered by a terrorist. He was planning to attend Rutgers School of Business in the fall after spending his "gap" year in Israel. The government of the United States has not publicly acknowledged Ezra’s murder, nor has it condemned the attack.

A petition has been started on “We the People” asking the president to acknowledge Ezra’s killing and to condemn the attack. If 100,000 signatures are reached within 30 days, the White House must respond. They don't have to agree, they just have to respond. Doesn't Ezra Schwartz' family deserve this?

If you would like to sign the petition, you can do so here.
