What Israeli Media Coverage Of Israeli Killed In Turkey Terror Attack Should Teach You

Another day, another Islamic terrorist attack, this time in Istanbul, with a terrorist – believed to have been dressed in a Santa Claus costume – opening fire at a crowded nightclub, killing at least 39 people and wounding close to 70.

May their memories be a blessing.

One of the victims was a young Israeli woman. Here are some examples of how the Israeli media reported it:

Jerusalem Post


Times of Israel

Israel National News (Arutz 7)

I mention this because the Israeli victim – Lian Nassar, 19 – was an Israeli Arab. You only discover that when reading the reports.

You see, Jew, Arab or Christian, we value our citizens. This is just further proof that claims of apartheid are plain ridiculous.

Of course, the palestinians cannot handle this, so we see headlines like this from their news agencies:

But make no mistake about it. Israeli Arabs mostly identify as Israelis.

Needless to say, our leaders come out with messages like this:

With this tragedy, may more people at least realize the truth about Israel.

Update: It’s not just the palestinians. This from Ha’aretz’s World News Editor Asaf Ronel:
