Media’s Confused Headlines: Equating Terrorists With Victims

Post by Guest on Mon Nov 23, 2015 5:59 pm

It’s been two months since the current wave of terror began, and the media outlets are still confused about victims and terrorists.On Sunday, three Palestinian terrorists attempted to stab Israelis in unrelated attacks, killing one woman. The terrorists were killed in self-defense. The New York Times initial headline (since changed): 1 Israeli and 3 Palestinians Killed in Attacks in West Bank. That headline implies that the violence was of equal moral value, that it was all just “attacks,” – Palestinians attacked Israelis, and Israelis attacked Palestinians. In fact, the headline implies that the Israeli attacks were worse because more Palestinians were killed.The moral failure, however, does not belong exclusively to the New York Times. Other newspapers also provided obtuse headlines that equated the victims and the terrorists. The Irish Times offered this whopper of a misleading headline:

Hamas and Fatah are threatening Gershon Mesika, the ex-settler leader who foiled a terror attack yesterday when he ran over Ashraqat Katnani, a Palestinian teenager trying to stab Israelis at the Hawara checkpoint, near Nablus. This inciting image was posted on Fatah’s official Twitter feed.

While the PA was claiming that Israel planted a knife on Katnani, her father proudly told Palestinian media that Ashraqat said she wanted to die a martyr and described her search for the best knife in the house. More on that angle at the Jerusalem Post.

See the belief is the same as ISIS, glorifying murderers, or attempted murderers, with the insane belief this some how makes them martyrs.
Like I say until such terror acts are condemned and the terrorists also condemned as apostates and blasphemers, then there is very little to seperate Islamic terrorism from Islam.
