Yisrael Medad
I am a resident of Shiloh, with my wife and children, and now grandchildren, since 1981, having come on Aliyah in 1970. I have served in a volunteer capacity as a Yesha Council spokesperson, twice a member of Amana's secretariat, Benjamin Regional Council plenum member and mayor of Shiloh. I was a parliamentary aide for Geula Cohen and two other MKs, an advisor to a Minister, vice-chairman and executive director of Israel's Media Watch and was Information and Content Resource coordinator for the Begin Heritage Center. I am now Deputy Editor of the critical edition in anthology of Jabotinsky's writing in English.

Following up on my last post on the Hebron shooting incident, a good friend, EG, alerted me to this invidious section of the Los Angeles Times report (which a screen-saved in case no one believes it):-

"Protester"? 

Okay, "terrorist" is not a mainstream media word.  "Militant" is the usual appropriate euphemism.

But "protester"?

Who is Kate Shuttleworth's editor?  

Her?

And Ms. Shuttleworth is an "Independent journalist", which means what?  The LATimes uses private contract journos?

Maybe the paper's readers' representative should be alerted: deirdre.edgar@latimes.com or send an email to readers.representative@latimes.com or call the Readers' Rep line, at 877-554-4000

UPDATE

The great people at CAMERA have now dealt with this - successfully.
