Last week, 23 year old Border Policewoman Hadas Malka was stabbed to death in a coordinated and premeditated terror attack, as she was guarding by the Damascus Gate (Shaar Shechem) of the Old City in Jerusalem.
Her attackers were subsequently shot and killed.
The BBC sent this tweet about the attack:
“Three Palestinians killed after deadly stabbing in Jerusalem”. The focus is not on the victim of the terror attack, but on the terrorists! Not only that, it completely ignores the fact that the “three Palestinians” were in fact the three terrorists who carried out the attack!
This warped ‘reporting’ of the news was picked up by US President Trump’s son, who quoted the BBC’s now-deleted tweet, saying: “You mean after they stabbed a female Israeli police officer to death… right? This is as close to being misleading as possible.”
