Friday night’s terror attack in Jerusalem’s old city in which terrorists stabbed Policewoman Hadas Malka to death got special coverage from BBC which made sure to whitewash their terror attack and magnify the ‘innocent’ death of terrorists. The headline was: “Three Palestinians killed after deadly stabbing in Jerusalem,” and in the article it said “Israeli police have shot dead three Palestinians after a deadly knife attack outside the Old City of Jerusalem, in which a policewoman died.” This wording was very purposefully ambiguous and could be misconstrued to mean Israeli’s shot innocent Palestinians.
Later after be called to task by people on twitter who saw the BBC tweet: “Three Palestinians killed after deadly stabbing in Jerusalem,” similar to the original headline they decided to make the headline “Israeli policewoman stabbed to death in Jerusalem” which more reflects the truth and doesn’t defend terrorists.
The original report aroused the ire of the public including Donald Trump Junior who tweeted on how slanted the headline was. This morning the BBC publicized an apology for the headline: “We accept that our original headline did not appropriately reflect the nature of the events and subsequently changed it. Whilst there was no intention to mislead our audiences, we regret any offense caused”, said the apology.
The attack took place as the Shabbat was being ushered in. It was a two pronged attack with one part next to the Zedekiah Caves and the other at Damascus gate where Hadas Malka was stabbed to death. She was 23 and died from her stab wounds that night n the hospital. At the other site a terrorist opened fire with an automatic weapon on the public passerby and wounded a few of them and a border policeman. The 2 terrorists were armed with Carl Gustav automatic weapons and hoped to sow more death and destruction but miraculously one of the guns jammed and the border police were able to shoot them dead before they could continue with their murderous intent.
