As Twitchy told you, earlier this morning, 13-year-old Hallel Yaffa Ariel was stabbed to death in her own bed by a Palestinian terrorist in the West Bank.

Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu swiftly issued a powerful statement, mourning Ariel’s death and condemning terrorism:

Surely President Obama would speak out as well, particularly in light of the fact that Ariel was also a U.S. citizen.

Well, let’s see:

OK, well, maybe his other Twitter account had something to say:

Nothing whatsoever about Ariel.

And where is President Obama’s commitment to seeking justice for American terror victims? Many hours after Ariel’s murder, he hasn’t even seen fit to acknowledge her death.

And that’s a disgrace.

This administration’s priorities are nothing short of shameful.
