The Media is Uninterested in 'Routine Terrorism'

The following was written on Friday in Hebrew by Avi Naim, head of the Beit Aryeh Council in western Samaria.

The vest you see in the picture above belongs to a paratrooper who was wounded last Friday as part of the routine Friday riots by Palestinian Arabs.

These demonstrations are supported by extreme leftist Israelis who take part in them regularly.

On the front part of the vest one can see the blood that flowed from the face of the officer (who was wounded and taken to Tel Hashomer Hospital) after he was hit by a rock thrown through a sling.

These demonstrations are well-planned provocations with lots of cameras that are there in the name of “Israeli democracy.”

When talking about the definition of terrorism and violence - this is terrorism and violence! But this is considered routine and does not interest the media.

May G-d guard and protect the fighters and soldiers and may they return safely to their homes and families.

Shabbat Shalom to all the people of Israel.
