Why does Yahoo and other news sources titillate with headlines such as " 4 Palestinians shot dead in Israel in latest violence"?

It glorifies the terrorists. The 9-11 headlines would have read "11 Arabs killed in plane accidents in New York City" if they'd been skewed like these Palestinian headlines.

    I wonder what the headlines would be in London or New York if Palestinians with stones and knives started to attack shoppers or children coming out of school or maybe people in a bus queue? would we think our police should do nothing? if the police couldn't cope we would also expect the army to be called in.

    These cowardly Palestinian leaders are whipping up trouble among-st young Israeli Muslim Arabs who have lived with a better standard of living in Israel than their fellow Arab in the vast lands that surround them perhaps they should be deported to war weary Syria?

    How does the report of 4 deaths, which states their nationality of the victims and perpetrators glorifying terrorists. These victims have not been proven to be terrorists and witnesses and video evidence dispute the claims, that in at least two of these cases the men shot were even armed..

    Could you be a Republican by any chance, we know how you love to condemn anyone shot by the police or military, especially if they belong to a group you hate, even before an initial investigation has taken place.

    The second link below is a website of former Israeli military, who tell many stories of being ordered to break human rights laws in their treatment of the Palestinians.. They tell the truth of the apartheid system they live under, which is the reality for the Palestinian people.

    Because they don't want to deal with the whining that is the anti-Israel faction. Complaints do come in from people who are sensitive to the Palestinians being portrayed as terrorists. Or, the journalists have those beliefs and are willing to skew the media in that direction. There is actually a lot more bigotry or at least bias in the media than a lot of people would like to admit. And they say that the Jews control the media: What a joke!

    Guru Hank, Anonymous, Jas B:

    It is a terrorist act to attack civilians who are going about their normal, non-violent, daily activities with the purpose of creating or enhancing public fear. A mom, dad, and preschool child walking home from the grocery store is attacked. The male attacker is screaming "Allah Akubar". Another civilian man comes to the defense of the family. The men die; the woman and child survive with life-altering injuries. The PA praise the attacker and denounce the civilians.

    1. How is this not a terrorist action?

    2. How can the civilians be accused of not respecting basic human rights? Are we to condemn the preschooler as a terrorist?

    No, I am not a Republican, and never have been. And Jas B, attacking me is a cheap way to deflect the discussion when you have nothing important to say.

    The Palestinians who were killed are not terrorists. That is right-wing Zionist propaganda. The Israelis are the real terrorists.

    It seems that most of the news agencies only care about the profits, not about fairness or truth.

    Palestinians are not the terrorists.
