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.

Further elaborating may be self incriminating.

“A few nations — regimes like Syria and Iran — continue to sponsor terror, yet their numbers are growing fewer and they’re growing more isolated from the world,” he said.
“Like slavery and piracy, terrorism has no place in the modern world,” said Bush. >>>>>
There are more people in the world dying from weapons of mass destruction from and by the U.S. than any other nation on earth – many of them collectively. Why is this not being reported? Forget it…I already know the answer.

An Islamic Jihad statement called the attack, during which an east Jerusalem Arab rammed his BMW into a crowd of IDF soldiers, tourists and citizens near the Old City’s Jaffa Gate “a natural response to the criminal occupation.” >>>>>

U.S. immigration authorities had sought to deport Qatanani on grounds that he failed to disclose on his green card application a prior arrest and conviction in Israel for being a member of Hamas — a group classified as a terrorist organization by the U.S. government.
Qatanani has denied being a Hamas member and said he was detained, not arrested, by the Israelis while traveling to his native West Bank in 1993. He said he was not notified of the charges against him or his conviction and that he was mentally and physically abused while in detention. >>>>>
