Whomever was in charge of the headline should have made clear that the Palestinian girl not only HAD a knife, but she was killed while attempting to USE the knife
When it comes to covering the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, ignorance apparently is bliss. Misconceptions about what goes on here plague the international media.
The Times of London’s Greg Carlstrom ignores the Palestinian terrorist murder of Dafna Meir in favor of a story on Israeli price fixing of school trips to Poland.
Two Palestinian stabbing attacks on Israeli women are described as “exchanges of violence” in the New York Times’ headline.
The brutal stabbing of Israeli mother Dafna Meir, in her home in Otniel, fails to generate much media coverage. Just how bloodthirsty does a Palestinian terror attack against Israelis have to be to deserve coverage?
Why does CNN think it’s appropriate to include a politicized Palestinian museum in its feature on cultural attractions opening in 2016?
The International Business Times inaccurately states that Hamas took over Gaza through democratic means and states the Hamas capture of an Israeli spy dolphin as fact.
The Independent wrongly states that the Green Line, agreed in the 1949 armistice, was the line “between Israel and Palestine.”
The New York Times bends over backwards to avoid using the term “terrorism.” They do make one exception however.
A Guardian opinion piece implies that Israeli Jews are spreading racist hatred having failed to learn the lessons of Nazism and Mein Kampf.
