Though the terrorist nature of the attack, and the nationalities of the perpetrator and victims, were never in doubt, Times of London editors chose the following vague and anodyne headline to accompany a Oct. 10th print article by Gregg Carlstrom: “Man shoots two dead in tram attack”.
Once again, we see the lengths British media outlets will go to avoid admitting error.
Yesterday, we posted about a Guardian article focusing on “walls within cities” all over the world that included paragraphs on Israel’s “wall” between east Jerusalem and the West Bank, yet didn’t include any information at all on the security reasons prompting its construction. As we also noted as a point of comparison, the Guardian article did manage to explain the security concerns motivating the erection of walls in Baghdad.
By failing to explain why the security fence dividing Israel with the West Bank was erected in the first place, and by erroneously suggesting that Jerusalem is a racially segregated city, the Guardian once again grossly misleads readers by favouring narrative over nuanced reality in describing everyday life in the Jewish state.
Although the exhibition itself is pretty downboat the fact that the church decided to criticise checkpoints that keep Israelis alive is pretty bewildering. Nowhere in the exhibition does the church condemn the Palestinian terrorism that has killed so many Israelis.
Once again, the Indy has exaggerated the impact of BDS and significantly skewed the facts to reinforce the increasingly absurd narrative that Jerusalem is facing ‘increasing international isolation’.

1) There have indeed been water shortages since the start of Ramadan (and since the start of the summer heat), but these were caused naturally by an increase in demand and a shortage of supply from the mountain aquifer. 2) This water shortage has affected both Jewish and Palestinian communities in the West Bank. 3) Israel actually increased the water supply to Palestinians in Hebron and Bethlehem, and to all Palestinian communities at night, to accommodate Palestinian Muslims observing the holiday of Ramadan.
On Nov. 24th, we posted about an ITV News segment on the latest Palestinian stabbing attack, We noted that the report failed to explain that the number they cited of Palestinians killed since Oct. 1 includes includes those involved in terror attacks.
Palestinian propaganda since the latest wave of terror attacks against Israeli Jews has been conspiratorial in nature, suggesting that innocent Palestinians have been “executed” by police, who then plant knives at the scene to cover up their crimes. Though most mainstream media outlets haven’t accepted this narrative, it is becoming common to see report which give credibility to Palestinian claims that Israeli police and security personnel have been using ‘excessive force’ when responding to such terror attacks.
We demonstrated in our post that Arab terrorists have in fact been targeting Jews, not ‘merely’ “settlers’. After complaining to Times of London editors, they agreed to issue the following correction.
