If people looked at everybody as human beings instead of black, female, or any other minority, then perhaps they could see why some might disagree about the Martin case.
But group dynamics is the cornerstone of liberalism. Remember Hillary Clinton's famous quote about individuality? "We must stop thinking of the individual and start thinking about what is best for society." Take away the group dynamic and you cut off the head of liberalism.
"To those with the entitlement mentality: You are only entitled to what you put into life, not what you expect to get out of it."-Yours Truly
I think you've exaggerated a bit. I haven't heard any Jew make excuses for a mugger or a Palestinian that wants to murder. I think liberal Jews might sympathize with their situation more, but that doesn't mean they're excusing people.
I went to a pro-Israel event a while back at a synagogue. Some of those people were as liberal as you can get them outside of the Israel subject. I like them because they are very understanding and non-judgemental. They're still for defending themselves against Palestinians and others though.
You've attended one event at a synagogue and now you're an expert? Look up J-Street as an example of the cattlecar mindset that I'm talking about, or read a bit of Noam Chomsky. Those Jews who see themselves as Progressives before they see themselves as Jewish are always ready to make common cause with our oppressors.
