Seeing humanity in art

I was searching for a video of the demonstration protesting the showing of the opera "TThe Death of Klinghoffer" at the Met, when I came across an interview with John Adams, the opera's composer, which can be viewed here. At the end of the video, Mr. Adams opines, "Our opera tries to look at the terrorists and the passengers and see humanity in both of them and for some people that's an egregious mistake. I don't feel it is, I feel that for all of the brutality and the moral wrong that they perpetrated in killing this man,they're still human beings and there still has to be reasons why they did this act."
I guess his next opera will be titled, "The killing of Foley" or "The humanity of Jihadi John."

In reaction to hearing the news that two suspects in the kidnapping of the three Israeli teens were killed in an operation to apprehend them, the father of Naftali Frenkel said, יש דין ויש דיין

The United States and five partner Arab nations carried out the first air strikes against Islamic State targets in Syria, the Pentagon said late Monday,...
Eight civilians, including three children, were also killed.

Where's the interntational condemnation of the killing of civilians? Oh, I forgot we're taking about the U.S., not Israel.


MRC has a headline titled Networks Refuse to Cover DOJ Baring Media from Ferguson Town Halls.
Is the DOJ forcing the media to undress or is he barring the journalists from the meetings?
