Israeli Lives Matter.

To the BBC Editor:

Your October 3rd headline ("Palestinian shot dead after Jerusalem attack kills two") was shockingly inaccurate. While we recognize that the headline was modified after it was originally posted, the damage had already been done. The main focus of the original headline was the death of the Palestinian perpetrator. All those who came to the BBC website after the attack would be led to believe that the Hamas terrorist was actually the victim!

This is an unacceptable error. We demand that the BBC issue an apology and take steps to prevent a reoccurrence. Headlines describing terrorist attacks must make clear who are the terrorists and who are the victims.

Israeli lives matter.
