Yet another example of how terror apologists avoid acknowledging the reality of Palestinian violence - by Ariel Behar

Friday’s terrorist attack at the Temple Mount in Jerusalem provided yet another example of how terror apologists avoid acknowledging the reality of Palestinian violence.

Qatar-based Al-Jazeera‘s first headline made it seem like three Palestinians had been killed for no particular reason. “At least three Palestinians killed in shooting in Jerusalem’s Old City,” the network posted on Twitter.

The three Palestinians were, of course, killed after they shot and killed two police officers and wounded a third in an unprovoked attack.

In the United States, Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP) — which claims to want safe and secure states for both Israelis and Palestinians — reacted to the terrorist attack by sharing a Facebook post with a video about the electricity crisis in the Gaza Strip. “The news today of armed Palestinians killed by Israeli occupying police near Al Aqsa mosque is grim, sad and frightening but won’t include the backdrop of Gaza in the dark — its undrinkable water, children suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder… each day becoming more unlivable,” JVP wrote.

This apparent rationalization of a terrorist attack on the holy site of the Temple Mount is not a surprising move by Jewish Voice for Peace.
