White House: Turkey and Bangaladesh, Yes; Israel, No

By Yisrael Medad  7/3/2016, 7:07 AM

Did the White House condemn the murder of an American citizen in a terrorist attack?

If you mean the killing of Hallel Yaffa Ariel in Qiryat Araba, then the answer is NO.

If you mean a general condemnation of a terror attack in which an American was killed in Dakka, then YES:

Statement by the Press Secretary on the Terrorist Attack in Dhaka, Bangladesh
The United States condemns in the strongest terms the horrific terrorist attack in Dhaka, Bangladesh on July 1-2. We remain in contact with Bangladeshi authorities and have offered any assistance necessary. This heinous attack resulted in as many as 20 deaths, including an American citizen, Bangladeshi law enforcement personnel, and citizens of several other nations. Our deepest condolences go out to the families and loved ones of those killed, and we hope for a speedy recovery for those wounded. This is a despicable act of terrorism, and the United States stands with Bangladesh and the international community in our resolve to confront terrorism wherever it occurs.
And also in reference to the Turkey terror attack at Attaturk Airport. - YES

Jews, perhaps, don't figure into the White House parameters of terror?
