CNN Breaking News: Killer Cars!
The other day a very tragic event happened in Graz, Austria, as CNN put it:
A man intentionally drove his car into a crowd of people in the middle of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s birthplace.
Now, those of us in Israel know this horrible scene all too well. The inventors of “car intifada” encourage this as a way to
peacefully protest the occupation kill Jews.
Suddenly, no man intentionally did anything. It was the car. And let’s throw in the fact that it was near “border police headquarters” to somehow make it sound like a legitimate military target.
This headline is not a simple wording issue. This is intentional. As with everything related to Israel and international media, the terrorist is innocent until… well forever.
Let’s take a look at the most recent incident in which a Palestinian terrorist stabbed a border policeman with a foot-long knife before being shot down and taken to an Israeli hospital and received Israeli taxpayer funded treatment.
OK, here’s that headline again, now with editors notes:
Now. This was an attempted murder. Plain and simple. Last week we saw Lod resident Dani Gonen murdered for trying to be a good samaritan. But the headlines again emphasized that he was in “occupied territory”.
What if a mass murder happened in a place of worship in Israel like in Charleston? Imagine how the media would report that in a similar style!
Well.. like this actually:
That’s how CNN reported the news when 2 Palestinian terrorists walked into a synagogue during prayer time and butchered 4 worshippers plus a cop with an axe. By equating the attackers with the victims and speaking to a PLO spokesperson on the phone. I don’t even want to think about how a similar style would report the Charleston incident.
When events similar to what happens in Israel happen around the world. Take note of the language.
