As he tried to escape the scene, the terrorist stopped long enough to plunge his knife into the chest of an elderly pedestrian. Emergency resuscitation efforts by ambulance crews failed.
Despite his own wounds, the police officer managed to shoot the attacker several times. Another passerby then overpowered the injured terrorist. >>>>>
While there is no doubt that stabbing a man in the chest is an act of terror; this short article uses the word terror/terrorist four times to identify a criminal act. The problem is that the word ‘terror’ or ‘terrorist’ is not typically used by any newspaper around the world for individual crimes against another. The same newspaper does not report Israeli-on-Arab or Jew-on-Muslim attacks as acts of terror. This kind of bias only helps to create a further divide of the people and is a dangerous precedent in reporting.
Without realizing it, it has become common place to label anything an Arab or Muslim does, alleged or actual, as an act of terror. This type of journalism allows for even non-Muslims who are against the Israeli apartheid and global agenda to continue to hold disdain for those Israel considers its ardent enemies – Arabs and Muslims. Tsk, tsk.
