That's a cheap card to play calling racism. The only elves that are killed are those who resist (excluding any yellow flagged NPCs that are cowering). I can also see why she would have brought in Stormwind troops. It would probably have been hard for the Kirin Tor and the guards to arrest the Sunreavers(conflict of interest?), so on her own authority, she allowed the Silver Covenant and mercenaries (us players) to do the deed with a little SW help. There's nothing wrong or illegal in that.
There is somethign wrong because if Jaina couldn't do it on her own it meant that power was more balanced in the Kirin Tor, she calls in the Stromwind Troops to consolidate her own power and destroy and resistance. She uses a clearly politically aligned army to consolidate her power. The Kirin Tor had been helping the Alliance for ages yet as soon as the Sunreavers help the Horde Jaina jumps on the opportunity to seize total power. If she couldn't do it on her own it meant she didn't yet weild total power, she needed a mercenary revolutionary army to achieve her Golden Dawn. how long before they start carrying little red Toems in dalaran?
Oh and only the ones who resist are killed? that's what Stalin said, and what every power hungry fiend says, as long as you obey totally and follow me I won't kill you. Stary at all and you are dead because i wield all of the power now.
Or more likely, there would be Sunreaver sympathizers in the Kirin tor, so she brought in outsiders who would not be swayed by any conflicting loyalties to arrest the Sunreavers. A reasonable thing to do. They were being legally arrested. Some resisted. Guess what happens when you resist arrest in real life? You get the crap beaten out of you if that's what it takes to subdue you. Or you are killed. We were only given the option of killing the NPCs and aside from the guards she killed around Aethus, Jaina did not kill anyone else. She teleported them all to the Violet hold.
Jaina did not immediately jump on the opportunity to seize total power. I'm not sure where you are getting that from unless you're looking very hard to find what she did was wrong and paint her in the worst possible light. You want her to be wrong and evil for what she did, so you are starting to twist facts to support your viewpoint. All she did was to deal with a betrayal and a possible threat to the security of the city and to other Alliance cities.

Considering the damage just two known people did to Theramore and Darnassus (stealing a known dangerous arcane device), it's safe and accurate to assume that there are more Sunreavers helping or at least sympathetic to the Horde. They had to be taken into custody as soon as possible.
