What If It Was The Israeli's?

I find the attached CNN article to be very strange. Not in what happened, I mean the Palestinians seem to be protesting everything lately. Because of the protest the Palestinians closed the Rafiah Crossing with Egypt. Here is what I think is very strange, the articles tone seems almost understanding, and we all know that if this closing had been done by Israelis in control of the border crossing everyone would have been up in arms about how horrible it was.

I also find it strange that a 'toss-away' fact in the article is that a 14-yr-old Palestinian boy was killed by Palestinian gunmen who were attacking a Palestinian Police Station in order to free family members who had been arrested. (Again, if the situation were involving Israelis, we all know the response of the press and international community would be very different.
