AFP Acknowledges Attempted Terror

December 15, 2003 20:54 by

In our communique of Dec. 11, Why the “Calm”? , we noted that the major news agencies have largely disregarded the recent wave of attempted Paalestinian terror that’s been successfully stopped by the IDF. We hear only of a “period of relative calm.”

Credit where it’s due: AFP has a report today recognizing that Israel has thwarted 22 attempted suicide bombings since the October bombing of Haifa’s “Maxim.” The IDF said there have been 25, but we’re pleased by AFP’s recognition nonetheless.
