World Won't Call it Terror
By Micah Halpern
Israel has seen an uptick in terror and yet, the international media is reluctant to call it “terror”.
Instead, they rewrite the events - placing blame on Israel.
Here is a recent Reuters news agency release. "Israeli forces shoot dead Palestinian after Tel Aviv bar attack". Well, yes – BUT – only after the Palestinian perpetrated a terror attack that killed 3 people. That detail was omitted from the original release.
Only after a huge backlash did Reuters rewrite the lead. Now it read: "Israeli security forces on Friday shot dead a Palestinian suspected of killing three people in a Tel Aviv bar, in the latest attack in a series amid renewed tensions between Palestinians and Israelis".
Better but not quite accurate. It places the emphasis and the wrongdoing on Israeli security forces. And the words “terror” and “terrorist” and still not mentioned.
The BBC posted this biased portrayal of the terror attack: "Palestinian gunman killed by Israeli security forces after deadly attack at Tel Aviv bar".
The Guardian depicted the events this way: "Israeli forces kill Palestinian after Tel Aviv shooting leaves two dead". It was later altered to read: "Israel: Two dead after gunman opens fire in Tel Aviv bar".
Fox got it correct - but hedged a little: "Israeli forces kill Palestinian after Tel Aviv shooting leaves two dead". Later altered it to: "Israel: Two dead after gunman opens fire in Tel Aviv bar".
This is a moral problem.
Murdering Israeli Jews simply because they are Israeli Jews is terror and it is racism.
How do these people, people others depend on for information, not lose the high ground for their moral inconsistency?
Every decent person must label these events properly and condemn the murder of innocent people, targeted because and only because, they are Israeli Jews.
