Footage Does Not Lie About Today’s Vehicular Attack, But Media Does

Today, a palestinian woman attempted to run over a group of civilians and IDF soldiers standing near a bus stop, and was shot and seriously wounded for her efforts.

It was attempted murder, plain and simple. I say this because the footage of the attack is available and unequivocal.

Note the car does not spin out of control or deviate from its course as it traverses the median strip towards the people near the bus stop.

Naturally, pro palestinian outlets like Ma’an News won’t let the facts borne out by the footage get in the way of their propaganda, leading with the woman being shot and charactering this as only an “alleged” attack.

And of course you can trust Ha’aretz to pull a similar stunt, suggesting it is only a claim of the IDF that this was an attack.

But what was the supposedly more middle-of-the-road (pardon the pun) Times Of Israel thinking?

They have even named their YouTube upload of the attack as a “suspected” car ramming!

Just like the attack itself, this brand of “journalism” is potentially lethal.
