Yesterday, a palestinian terrorist attempted to murder a 12-year-old Jewish boy at a spring in Hebron with two other children – before running off like the brave lion of Palestine that he is. He thankfully did not succeed, but the young boy was injured, suffering a bad cut and temporary loss of consciousness.

This terror attack has registered no interest by the mainstream media. As of the time of this post, it has only been reported by Israeli media, which unfortunately does not mean fair coverage. Take for example the Times of Israel, which use this headline to report the attack:
The implication? An Israeli boy is injured in a rock attack, perpetrated by someone of unknown nationality. The line under the headline mentions a “Palestinian assailant”, since they seem to have an aversion to the word “terrorist.” And the report itself is no better
An Israeli boy was knocked unconscious after being hit in the head by a stone while at a spring in the West Bank city of Hebron, in what the army said was an attack by a Palestinian assailant Saturday.
As if this is just the IDF’s version of events and not what the video clearly shows.
And it goes without saying this attack has not been condemned by the haters who otherwise love reporting from Hebron.
